Ranked #6 of 26 Hotels in Nicosia
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here 2 nights mid-Feb getting a bit of sunshine. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are fine and quiet. Breakfast was included on our tariff and a good start to the day. Free WiFi was much appreciated and it is a good connection speed. We didn't eat here but it seemed quite popular. Car parking is a bit hit and miss - there are a few places in front of the hotel but maximum stay is 1 hour between 09:00 and 13:00; fine any time after then. We left the car there all day whilst walking around the town and got away with it.

I stayed 5 nights in January 2013 for business and I must say that the staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel was comfortable and with easy access to the main shopping streets and old town of Nicosia. There are a few quirks which have been commented on previously. The fact that it is an amalgamation of older buildings does make navigating the corridors and stairs challenging at first. There was a wide range of food for Breakfast although the lack of fresh juice was strange given the propensity of citrus fruit on the island! Jazz and wine nights in the bar were welcome to give variety to my stay.

Tours of the island and Nicosia were limited as it was off season, but I would recommend going to the tourist office near the hotel and taking the walking tour. Very informative.

unarguably, best choice in nicosia. located close to interesting historic sites and ledra, but in a much more quiet street and neighborhood. room is spacious, clean, and simply furnished with comfortable furniture; a safe is in a closet, in-room bar may be stocked upon request, and implements for making coffee or tea are available. strong water pressure, ample hot water, and heated towel racks in the bathroom. delicious breakfast buffet of hot and cold food choices, fresh fruits, and excellent individually brewed fresh coffee (or tea, or hot chocolate) are served in the spacious and relaxing '59 knives'. 'blu bar' has a stock of excellent wine and liquor, and with excellent live musical performers on selected evenings; not to be missed is ms. christina georgiu on saturday nights.
free wifi is trouble-free in the room; computers and printer are also available in a quiet 'office' off a meeting/conference room.
no smoking in public places; an outdoor court yard close to '59 knives' is used by some to have coffee with their cigarettes.
staff are professional, courteous, gracious and very helpful. we arrived at 11:00 am not expecting to have a room until early afternoon; receptionist had us wait in the sitting room by the bar and served cold sandwiches and iced water. room was ready just as we finished refreshment. staff also helpful in selecting and arranging ride to the airport.
hotel manager, mr l. maxoutis, is a very gracious host, always ready to assist us and to provide for any needs.
had a great experience with the classic which we booked because our first choice could not accommodate us for the full duration of our stay in necosia.
will be our first choice next time we come to cyprus.

This was a very unique hotel with split levels, confusing hallways, clean rooms, wonderful breakfast and very helpful staff. The location is central but still about 2 to 3 blocks from the pedestrian mall, shopping and good restaurants. Out the front door is busy all the way to the pedestrian mall. Out the back door (and a bit shorter distance) is deserted and dark most of the way to the outdoor pedestrian mall. But that's ok, because it's VERY safe in Nicosia. Our rooms were very clean, fresh and nice. The lobby was very pretty. The front desk gave excellent directions and restaurant suggestions. They even drove my car for me to find a parking spot because I was sweating bullets trying to drive through the narrow streets and stay on the right side of the street! Couldn't be any nicer. The parking lot is very close and cheap.

Room Tip: The executive suite had a MUCH larger bathroom and bedroom but the standard was just fine too.

Dear Guest
Thank you very much for your very nice feedback and your wonderful comments about our breakfast, staff, Rooms and the hotel public areas!

About the uniqueness of our Hotel with split levels I would like to point that is an inheritance feature from the original building on the site which was a large house with a big garden.
The Hotel was built around the house and many areas of the Hotel were the original rooms of the house!

It would be a great pleasure to welcoming you back in the near future!

Maybe the best value for money hotel in town. Very friendly staff, very clean, simple rooms, lux breakfast, very nice decor, great location for downtown, and just opposite to bus station. I will stay there again for sure.

The Classic Hotel Nicosia offers his guests a boutique rooms that are clean and nice (a little bit small in my opinion).
Excellent hotel location is within walking distance to the city center.
In addition it should be noted that a decent price hotel located in capitol.
Hotel excellent service, good breakfast and internet (WIFI) free.

Room Tip: ask for a big room

I stayed at the Classic hotel last week, on a 5-day trip to Cyprus. I was greeted in a friendly manner upon arrival, close to midnight, as my flight was late arriving- and within minutes of being shown to my room, a tray with a late night snack and water arrived, compliments of the hotel. That was just a beginning of a very relaxing stay. Free wi-fi and a plentiful breakfast, a quiet room and a bar ( Blue) that had live music and was a great venue to meet friends and clients in the evening. The hotel is an easy 5 minute walk to Ledra street, the shopping centre of the Old Town.

Highly recommended!
