I spent 3 nights in this hotel for business purposes. As I heard it was a quite new hotel but I have to admit, I did not notice. Hard to describe the style of the hotel, the rooms are relatively small and I have never seen such a small bathroom, even one person can hardly fit in. They have full variety of amenities and change the towels daily without asking for it. The breakfast was good, if you want to drink a good coffe you have to pay 4eur extra.

I cannot fault the service or the facilities at this hotel. We have hosted two conferences there now and the service has been second to none. Nothing was to much trouble and the staff are amazing. Adrian in particular offered unparalleled levels of service.

Stayed here for a week whilst working nearby and The Semeli is an ideal business hotel. Very clean (there always seems to be a cleaner mopping a floor somewhere), comfortable rooms and I was impressed that they have orthopaedic pillows on the beds. Staff were all very friendly and incredibly efficient. A good selection of food in the restaurant, which I would class as 'simple food done well'. The location is only a short ride from town and my only criticism is that there is no pool to enjoy on my last day when I don't need to work. That said, it still makes an ideal and comfortable place to stay for a business trip, backed up with good witeless Internet access throughout the hotel included for free. A very enjoyable stay and I would be happy to recommend to colleagues.

I 've stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks during February 2012 due to a business trip.
The hotel offers 5* star hotel services, both concerning the room facilities as well as the food/beverage and the overall service. Great attention to detail ranging from anatomic pillows to massage shower facilities. Not to leave out the high standards of hygiene throughout the hotel.
I would definetely recommend a stay at Semeli, Nicosia. Take this advice from a welll travelled person that loves confort, style and luxury...

I stayed last weekend at this hotel for a polymer clay workshop.
It is recently built, so everything looks fresh, clean and new. The staff are very helpful and the rooms well appointed, with mini bar, tea/coffee tray, bath robes and all the usual complimentary items in the bathroom. Each room has a balcony. The beds were very comfortable, with a firm and a softer pillow on each one. I paid 120 euro a night half board. The food was very good. Lovely fresh salads and buffet style entrees. My only complaint is that the corridor outside the room is noisy. There is no carpet on the floor to muffle people going to their rooms, and the doors to the rooms slam shut very loudly. Luckily I had brought ear plugs with me!
There is nothing much to see around the hotel, so need to take a taxi to the old city.

Room Tip: Ask for one not directly opposite the elevator.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The review from Iola S is a bit strange as the Hilton is 100Eu per night more expensive for b+b so check the price for yourself.

The hotel is aimed at the business market, so had a quiet feel to it as people seemed to take evening meals as room service and were out fairly early in the mornings. However the hotel would also serve as a good base for tourists visiting the city. A pleasant 15 min walk or approx 6Eu taxi ride gets you to the old town.

The hotel is obviously new, the public areas are very pleasant and the hotel has a nice look to it. The guest rooms and the public areas are very clean. The breakfast was fine, a buffet with the usual hot and cold food. We ate in the restaurant twice in our stay, the food was reasonably priced and there was a choice of snacky foods (toasted sandwiches with fries) or more substantial 3 course meals. On both occassions our meal was good, well cooked, tasty and plenty of it.

The staff were, without fail, friendly and helpful. Following a fall and a swollen ankle (watch out for the pavements in Nicosia) as we limped back into the hotel and explained our predicament the staff went to get some ice wrapped in a towel to use as a compress (and again the next day).

The leisure facilities are limited to a gym and sauna. The gym looks brand new (unused brand new!) with a good range of equipment.

The only thing that we weren't too keen on was the lighting in the rooms, corridors and stairwells. The corridors and stairwells used a motion detector to switch the lights on, so when you entered these areas they were initially very dark at night time. The lights came on quickly but it looked a bit unwelcoming. In the room the lights were LEDs. These are very directional so the rooms ended up feeling a bit gloomy without a wide spread of light. I don't think you get full spectrum light with these either but that's a minor gripe.

The bathrooms were a little on the small side, but had all the toiletries that you would need. The shower was over a bath - but the bath didn't have any taps. Maybe you get these in an executive room !

Overall a clean good quality hotel. A good base for the city whether for business or tourism with very helpful and friendly staff.

Spent one there over a weekend for a black-tie dinner. The hotel is new so was spotless throughout. Staff were very accommodating and all the facilities in good condition. It's purely a sleeping-over hotel; no additional facilities so probably priced a bit high, considering the Hitlon is adjacent. That said, enjoyed the experience.
