Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very pleased with sea facing room, but the “budget rooms” are for sleeping only! Staff sometimes scarce. But otherwise very helpful. Good position in old town. Closest restaurant expensive and worth short walk across to main town. Nice breakfast spread. No complaints!

This family run hotel may be rated 2-star but it is far better than that, and it is excellent value for money. The owners and staff are all friendly and helpful. The Axiothea is perched high up in the old town (Ktima) with lovely views over Paphos to the sea. We had a sea view room on the 4th floor. There is a lift. Breakfast is very good with plenty of options, and again beautiful views. My favourite was the huge choice of excellent homemade jams and marmalades (maybe 9 or 10). I think there were five different marmalades and I tried them all. There are plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance.

This is a marvelous hotel! Completely renovated. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is excellent. Location is close to the old town with many shops and restaurants and city market. Recommended rooms are those with a sea view, on floor 3 or 4. The sunsets are beautiful! Very good value for the money.

It was a great experience. At the check-in the receptionist kindly provided an adapter and a welcome bottle of water. The rooms were cleaned every day. Breakfast was great and the view from the hotel restaurant was marvellous. Definitely recommend.

There are not that many choices away from the coastline in Paphos that are so good as this hotel. Very clean and friendly people. Vast lobby and adjacent breakfast area with views of Paphos and the sea in the distance. Breakfast itself is very good as well, enough choice to start the day. Room was nice with a balcony and views towards the sea. Perfect for me.

Busy beachside hotels have their place, but the Axiothea has a sense of place. It’s in the Old Town and is family run, which is why I would stay again. The staff care. Everybody was helpful and kind and the hotel itself was immaculate.

Like the old Greek acropolises, the Axiothea hotel is perched on top of a hill overlooking Neo Paphos. Its around a 25mins walk away from the center or a 10min bus ride on the infrequent 618. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was amazing. One of the finest spreads in Europe, however the replenishment could have been a bit quicker. The rooms were spacious and most of them had balconies. My room overlooked an occupied residential complex which made it a bit weird as the residents could stare directly into my room. The establishment's rules are posted everywhere and they involve changing towels every 3 days and linen every 5 days. I understand the logic behind these guidelines but their appliance should have exceptions. I had accidentally spilled some food on my bed and even in this case, my stained bed-sheets weren't changed. It was the same case with my used utensils (glass), which weren't cleaned/replaced. There were no ports next to the bed and the only way to charge your electronics was through an extension cord with limited outlets. I had to choose between charging my laptop or keeping the refrigerator running. Finally the room was a little under equipped as normal items like kettle, spoons, tea/coffee were missing. The wifi throughout the property was amazing and the AC was powerful. The Axiothea is a solid choice if you want to stay near the old town, but you should choose a property near the harbour if you want to be close to the action.

Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to write you review and remarks, all well noted and we will adjust accordingly if required. Allow us though to point out a few things: 1. house policies are set to be followed and of course in case there is a solid reason to make exceptions, then we do indeed adjust. 2. If your linen required changing due to an accident and our chambermaid did not see this (also by accident), all you needed to do was just inform us. The fact that you "let it pass" raises questions. 3. We have various room types, some overlooking the sea and panoramic views, some at the back side with direct views to the adjacent residential complex. All room type descriptions are very detailed and thorough online, it's a matter of guest choice, financial budget and of course availability. 4. Our hotel is the oldest in operation in Paphos, turning 50 consistent years very soon. By definition, we are an old establishment thus the style and character of our building and furnishing. By all means though, there are "no discounts" to cleanliness, amenities and facilities (keeping in mind that we are a small 2 star B&B hotel). 5. Electricity plugs are available in all rooms, at least 2. We always have gadgets available at the reception (adaptors, extensions, converters etc.) for free use by our guests if required. The statement "had to choose between charging my laptop or keeping the refrigerator running" is at least not accurate and misleading. We wish you all the very best. Michael.

We were totally enthralled by the charm, character and welcoming spirit at the Axiothea. The location is superb, the hotel is comfortable and immaculate and the staff are universally friendly and helpful. The hotel is in upper Pafos and it is a world away from the tourist centers, For us that is exactly what we are hoping for when we visit a new place and the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home.

The owner and staff were so attentive and kind. Home made jams and marmalades at breakfast, freshly squeezed lemon juice, from their own tree…. They had extension leads when needed, (due to medical equipment I had). Cleanliness was incredibly high. It was modern enough to have everything we need, but quirky and homely in its’ uniqueness. Fabulous for the town, lovely park next door. We will be coming back.
