The Classic Hotel
Ranked #6 of 26 Hotels in Nicosia
Reviewed March 25, 2014

First, full disclosure: I work in a four-star downtown Chicago hotel, so I know a bit about the hospitality industry. The Classic Hotel is my choice of a comfortable place to stay that's within comfortable walking distance to major Nicosia sights if you're here on vacation and it appears to have a nice selection of amenities/services for business trips. No need to replicate what you can read in other reviews, but I can add that it's just two blocks to the major intercity bus station for nonstop, easy coach service to UNCESCO World Heritage sites such as Pafos and to other cities, which opens all sorts of possibilities. Book a room and then get on with it. :-)

Room Tip: Standard rooms are fine unless you're the type who likes to pamper yourself with slightly larger...

The location of the hotel is phenomenal if it is your first trip to Cyprus and you want to do all the usual tourist attractions. It is opposite the fire station and a crow's flight from the old city, as well as Ledra Street and the Green Line. Just turn right on Arsinois Street. It is also walking distance from the Levantis Museum.

The room I got was reasonably large and the internet connection within the room was strong, which is great for streaming. The sheets were clean, the water pressure in the shower was good and there was hot running water (easily calibrated to suit your preference). There are a few English channels available (mostly news wires and Bloomberg TV), so you are better off entertaining yourself with Netflix if you don't speak Greek.

The breakfast buffet selection is passable but not shabby. The hotel refunds you parking fees if you are driving since they do not have their own lots. This was a nice touch. Generally, the service is good and the decor is reasonably modern but don't go expecting the Hyatt standards. The business center is essentially two reasonably new desktop computers in a small room. No frills but it does the job if you aren't fussed.

The only downer was that despite advertising spa and massage services, these were not available when I inquired since their (I must assume sole) therapist had apparently injured herself.

Staff was very helpful and the hotel well situated in the Old City. Free WIFI in your room was a bonus. Breakfast was included and this was an excellent value based up the convenient location and modernness of the hotel.

Nice and friendly staff, my room was great, I loved it! Great breakfast, even too rich!!... you could find almost everything. it is centrally located in a quiet aera though and the city center is quite easy to be reached on foot. it was a business trip so unfortunately I had absolutely no time to try their SPA and the Blue bar with live music that looked both very attractive . hopefully on the next occasion!

This hotel was completely renovated in 2010, and feels like it was just done in 2013. Very modern, bright, clean and attractive. Quiet, comfortable bed, good lighting, huge bathroom and walk in shower. Free WiFi, free use of hotel's two computers, excellent buffet breakfast, complementary drinks in room fridge. Very attentive and accommodating service throughout. We had an excellent dinner (pasta) in their wine bar (Blue). Perfect location for exploring the Old City. No parking at hotel. Walking distance to the Ledra St border crossing or even to the Ledra Palace border crossing - if you don't have a lot of luggage to drag.

Room Tip: We had a room facing into a centre courtyard, so it was very quiet.

Quite expensive, but nothing special. Nice staff, but small room with not comfortable bathroom. I did't like it much. Nice breakfast area and good choice of breakfast options. Close to the check point and pedestrian area; about 10 minutes. Watch out; the firemen' station opposite side ot the street; pray for the lack of fire in Nicosia... :-)

Room Tip: Try to have a room without Street view
