“Good rooms with bad LED light!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

I have stayed 2-3 times in Semeli hotel always for business, hotel started last year and it's new in the beginning it had all the problems of new buildings but after a while it's getting improved, food is OK but breakfast is with limited options, there is no swimming pool and meeting rooms are in the basement with no natural light, rooms have a good but small bathroom usually very clean with things you need for morning fresh up the worst thing about rooms are their LED white light this kind of light drives me crazy in this hotel you can have good Internet I can recommend hotel for 2-3 days trip to Nicosia.

Stayed there for 5 days, for business purposes. Hotel room was very comfortable, with the balcony (salvation for smokers), big bathroom and coffee machine. The only problem was an internet access, which was very poor in the room, but very good everywhere else, including the corridor outside rooms, and free (unlike Hilton hotel, which charged internet access to everyone, including members of the conference organized in their hotel). Breakfast was very nice with various offers. Room was clean and guests are welcomed with fruit and little bottle of Cyprus wine.
But what is really the hidden treasure of this hotel is - staff. I travel a lot, but have never, I repeat, never, had a chance to see such hotel staff. They treat you as their home guests, doing everything to make you feel welcome and dear guests. I have just asked for general information about Larnaca sightseeing and the lady on the reception desk did a real research what to see in Larnaca, how to get there, where to eat or maybe stay for the night, and her report was waiting for me that evening. Not to mention that they replied to every call and request,and their attitude which made you feel home.
I have never really thought that staff could be a crucial factor for choosing the hotel. But in case of Semeli - they are. Thanks to them, Semeli will be my choice if I ever have chance to visit Nicosia again.

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.
