“Spring Break”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We really enjoyed our holiday here in mid April. I can echo the previous reviews & thoroughly recommend the hotel for people looking for a quiet & peaceful environment. Although very early in the season, we enjoyed sunbathing round the pool. Service was very friendly and in general nothing was too much trouble. The High Life staff & management were very happy to deal with our inquiries. As genuinely local people their knowledge was very helpful. We particularly stayed here because it was out of town but only a five minute taxi ride to the town center. You can walk into town (and we did) but it's a genuine 40 minutes. There are shops & facilities on the way & we would particularly recommend the nearby bakery for trying delicious local delicacies at the garden tables. We rented a decent car for a few days exploring, from the hotels associate company at a competitive rate.

My wife and I stayed there the first week of March for some "alone time". This hotel is wonderful. by the Sea, very friendly staff, and always ready to help in every way .

The hotel is a small boutique property, elegant and quiet whose staff can't do enough to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.The owner Mr. Husein in particular was very, very nice. They had good recommendations of places to see, shop or to eat in around.

If you are looking for a great location with a reasonable price, please check it out

Overall, highly recommended!

We stayed in the hotel for three nights and loved every minute of it. The hotel staff was very courteous and took great care of us! This hotel is also very kid friendly. I requested warm water, milk almost all nights for my son and it was delivered exactly as I wanted and within minutes of making the request. This hotel is also very clean and the rooms are a great size! Can't wait to go back again...

HighLifeCyprus, Owner at High Life Hotel, responded to this review, 19 March 2014
Dear Guest,

Thank you for your kind words about your stay with us. We would like to make a clarification in response to the review in order to avoid any confusion. Our web site currently states those under 12 years old cannot be booked to stay at High Life. This is a policy we decided to reinstate recently for 2014 and onward after testing accepting kids at our hotel for a brief period. We found out that our setting is not suitable for kids. Once again thank you for your positive review.

Regards,
Huseyin Firincioglulari
General Manager

We went there for just one day.The room was very tidy and comfortable. Nice personnel and are ready to give you some advice where to go if you are for the first time in Kyrenia.Quite hotel,unfortunately we had no possibility to use all the facilities of the hotel as it was February.At summer time I am sure it is even better.

This hotel with some 20 rooms has been owned and run by the Firinciolglulari family for over 10 years.
However during the last year Beha the owner and his wife Sohret have retired and the hotel management has been taken over by their son Huseyin, and also with the help of his 2 sisters.
There are several small boutique type hotels around Kyrenia, but this is one of very few which are situated right by the sea. It is so peaceful and has beautiful mountain and sea views. There are shops and restaurants within a 10 minute walk, also public transport, and the hotel has cars to rent.
Huseyin has lived in California for 20 years but is now enthusiastically dedicated to running the High Life and is making various changes and upgrades whilst still preserving the hotel's charm.
The outside of the buildings has been painted in pretty soft pastel type colours, and the restaurant has been renovated and now has a separate bar area. The large terrace area overlooking the sea, where meals can taken is also to be upgraded.
Huseyin also intends to extend the WiFi, at present in the main building, to the rooms along with other room improvements.
We spent 2 weeks there in mid October. The weather was perfect, we were made to feel so welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were fresh and delicious, and also served with big smiles, a cheery way to start the day!
We wish Beha and Sohret a long and happy retirement, and Huseyin the very best with the new management of this relaxing hotel, and also look forward to our next visit in 2014,

We really enjoyed staying at High Life hotel in Kyrenia. Customer service no doubt was the best we received from a hotel in a while. The staff was very attentive to our needs. We would definitively recommend it to anybody wanting to have a good time, relax and not have to worry about anything, like I said staff is very attentive!

The High Life is once again a hidden paradise. If you want relaxation, peace, quiet, attentive and helpful staff, an away-from-it-all holiday with the personal touch then the High Life is for you. Yes it did go through a period of 'depression' but now, under the management of Hussein it is definitely on the up. Don't just take my word for it - go for yourself and experience all that this very special hotel has to offer. My late husband and I first discovered the High Life in 2001 - 12 years and many visits later, it is still my favourite small, secluded hotel where you can relax in perfect surroundings, feel safe even if travelling alone, and be assured that the new manager will do all in his power to ensure your stay is perfect. Already I am looking forward to my next visit.
