I planned a business trip to Nicosia and, having read all the reviews, I said - what the hell Hilton (where my colleagues stopped), Centrum!!! No doubts, looks like adventure - reserved rooms online and departed to airport. So what Ive got...
- Situated in the historical heart of Nicosia, 15 min walk away from Turkish part - yeah - cheap shopping, etc
- Very friendly and easy accessible personnel
- Renovated common areas, nice reception zone, nice restaurant
- Inside the room - close resemblance to my grand mom's kitchen - some obsolete, some old, some hand made, some is not exact fit and manually adjusted but everything is working well & reliable. Wi-fi, no fridge, very nice balcony with nice views of not very nice constructions (room 403), really metallic door key!)))
- Massive construction goes very close to the hotel, so in the morning I used to wake up from loud sounds of one big thing hitting another and so on.
- And the final stroke ... I was attacked by the horde of ants which appeared out of nowhere. As the result I had to practically check and shake out all my luggage and spent the last night tossing and turning, recollecting episodes of National geographic on what kind of infections urban ants might be spreading. I had to admit that when I called to personnel they brought a sort of spray which actually destroyed the trace of ants to the room, at least, till the end of the night... but the chemical smell of it stayed in the room though all night adding to the thing.
Well, I cannot say it was wrong experience, I like adventures, probably I will go there again, but match your expectations of the hotel and the character of your trip before you decide on your choice.
