All the great reviews about this hotel are true. It is a cosy place, the staff is very helpful, polite and friendly. The rooms are clean and despite the fact that they look rather old they are in good condition. Breakfast is very good, you get to order your eggs the way you want them to be served and everything is very tasty. Moreover -and that is very rare to find- the breakfast room remains open all day and night and you can eat anything that is there (biscuits, water, juices and sweets in the fridge, tea and coffee) FREE of charge! So you can have a free snack anytime you want!
The hotel is located about 2 kilometers away (roughly a 20 min walk which is not difficult to do as the city is flat) from the city center (Solomou Square) and that is perhaps the only disadvantage of the hotel, however this can also be fixed. The hotel has its own cars which can take you anywhere in the city (of course you have to make arrangements with the reception) and that is also free of charge! So no need for taxi! When we left for Limassol, a very friendly and helpful driver from Sri Lanka came and picked us up from from the hotel and drove us to Solomou Square. You can also use bus 259 which stops very close to the hotel but it is not very frequent. There are some bicycles in front of the hotel which you can use (I am not sure whether they charge for those as I didn't ask), this is also an excellent way to get around Nicosia if you have the time.
I would definetely recommend Asty Hotel for a pleasant stay.
P.S. If you want to visit the northern part of the city make sure you take your passport with you when you go for a walk up Ledra street.
