“A great hotel but ...”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

A nice and clean hotel in the centre, very close to the beach promenade, cafes and little shops.
Good breakfast and friendly staff. We stayed for 8 nights with young children, and for us the trash truck noise nearly every night was a problem. We all woke up every time, and emptying did not last just for 5 minutes but for 15, or even more. I really wish and hope that the hotel will find some kind of solution to this problem, because everything else is really good about this place!

Our second visit to this hotel and won't be the last. We had a very good couple of rooms with a small balcony. Hotel was clean and the breakfast was, as last year, excellent. We sat with a view of the sea eating Greek yogurt and fruit - an excellent start to the day. The staff are what really make this hotel special - all genuinely friendly and helpful, and ready to go the extra mile. Recommended for a relaxing break.

Lovely hotel with a very friendly and helpfull staff. Great location for town centre shops, beach, marina and seafront restuarants.
A previous reviewer complained about being next to McDonalds yard and bin lorries arriving early in the morning to empty bins. This is a fact but the hotel is in the centre of a very crowded town with old narrow streets and an expanding commercial structure. This does not detract from the excellence of the decor and facilities the rooms have to offer, great bed, subtle lighting, built in reading lights with 'interesting' switches - once you find them :-) .
The view from the restuarant at breakfast is superb overlooking the beach and ocean.

Dear Guest,

I must agree with you that I love having my breakfast with that view aswell. It is a great morning kicker!
We appreciate your review and thank you for understanding the "town centre restriction" on why we can not offer an even better experience for our guests but Achilleos City Hotel will always try to give the best for it's stayers.

We hope to see you soon!

Stayed here on a business trip for four nights.Booked a standard room for one person. The rooms and bathroom are clean and beds are comfortable. Bathroom doesn't have any toiletries so bring your own.The location is excellent, a two minute walk to the beach, restaurants and pubs. Don't expect a good view from your room since all you get are buildings in front of you and a McDonalds parking lot. The view from the breakfast room is of the beach. Breakfast is good but simple, serving both hot and cold. Staff are friendly and helpful. We had an early checkout and an evening flight but they were nice enough to store our baggage. The internet connection is free and really fast. The air conditioning gave off a bad smell when I turned on the heat so keep the balcony door open. A good, clean simple hotel. worth a stay if you're looking for comfort and a good location.

We got married in Larnaka and stayed the night at Achilleos. We didn't really pay any attention to the hotel we were getting from our travel agent, being busy with lots of other details, so we didn't know what to expect at all - we actually just asked him to get us the cheapest hotel close to the center so we could get some dinner nearby. We were in for a surprise.

The hotel is located on a small street right behind the beachfront, so it's a few steps away from the beach and a huge amount of restaurants and bars from fast food spots such as KFC & Starbucks to more serious dining options. It's a great location for staying in Larnaka because everything is accessible on foot and yet it's quiet enough to get a good night's sleep.

Receptionists were really nice, spoke fluent English & Russian and were familiar with the process of marriage in Cyprus. They were very helpful with all our requests, and even made us a special early breakfast as we left the room before the dining room opens the next day.

Being a boutique hotel it's got rooms designed quite differently from one another, ours was on the ground floor and was a small but incredibly well equipped one. The bathroom was sparkling clean with a rain shower! The bed was big and comfortable, a smart flat-screen TV that we could connect our MP3 player to for some music, great ambient lighting and even a large balcony. It also had an RFID entrance key which isn't very crucial but is a really neat touch. WiFi was free and worked well.

Everything was clean, in perfectly new condition, modern and well made. We wish we could stay there another night, and if we ever visit Larnaka's beautiful beaches again we're certain this is where we'll stay.

I stayed here twice. The first time I had a standard room which was small with a small double. On the second visit I had an Executive room which was much nicer.
The first stay was on the first floor and we were woken by some noisy people outside, sadly they then came into the hotel and were staying also on the first floor. We had no problem in the better room which was on the third floor.
The breakfast is on the fourth floor and has a view over the sea which is pleasant. The breakfast was good.
There is a small amount of parking at the front of the hotel but there is also a small car park opposite the hotel and on our first stay the hotel arranged for our car to park there. On the second stay we parked just outside the hotel.

Room Tip: The executive room that I had was large and also on a higher floor so it was quieter.
