“Would not go back to this hotel”
Reviewed 24 August 2011

The room was basic but clean, but the TV only had two channels in Russian. The pool was green and murky and was not cleaned. The bed was as hard as rock and the air con leaked water, we had to get a bucket fromt he cleaner to catch the water. We stayed half board, but the food was disgusting, the leftovers were put in the next day's pasta salad and everything was served up in washing up bowls. The staff were very helpful and informative. The bar was bare, and they didnt even stock water. The only drinks were from a tap which were coke, fanta and sprite, but not the real thing, a cheaper version. Miles from the centre, at least a good 25 min walk and a decent beach. The beach nearby was rocky and stoney.

the floor was dirty, the furniture is very old and poor, the breakfast is horrible, if you are staying there dont pay 5 euros for the breakfast, you better grab some snacks from the supermarket.
most of the guests are russians.
the only good thing about it is the location, it is in the middle between the city center and the Mckenzie beach, so if you are goin in winter you will not benefit from this, and for the record the room was spacy.

This hotel was advertised as having been recently refurbished.As you can tell by the pictures that is not true.On getting into our rooms we noticed a really bad smell and on opening our wardrobe we were presented with the main toilet drain running through its leaks and all.The staff in the hotel could only speak russian with a little broken english so communication was not possible.The rest of the room was not up to much either.The swimming pool smelt just as bad as our toilet / wardrobe.Dont even go for breakfast as the bugs are there before you.They advertise a spar / gym but there is none.

Room Tip: dont book this hotel

I booked to stay with a friend at this hotel. Last year I spent two months in Larnaca and thought I knew the city pretty well. However nothing prepared me for the state of this 'hotel'. It was shabby, the airconditioning unit in my room was disconnected so even if I had wanted to pay extra for it when I arrived, that was impossible. The receptionist initially said he would deal with it, then later admitted there was no airconditioning for that room. There was no fire exit signs, no lighting in the hall ways, and the back door of the hotel was wide open for all and sundry to walk in and out however they pleased.

The room was dirty, the beds hard as rock, the wardrobe was all shelving, the fridge was only on when the room key was in the electrical socket. There was a very odd sour smell in the room the source of which I dread to think. I did not stay one night there, in fact not even an hour - I did not feel safe - neither from a health point of view or personally. Luckily I had a friend to stay with that night and checked into another hotel (at great expense) the next day. This hotel is an absolute disgrace - I just wished I read the reviews on here first. This hotel should be shut down, it certainly should not be on hotel internet websites.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

I stayed here but went to cactus hotel for breakfast and their internet service. spent more time there actually. I don't have high expectations but this hotel room was beyond ridiculous. DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU:
1. want hotel staff who actually can answer your questions. didn't know the most basic information which tourists need. they were nice, but some really could not help us. I had to ask Cactus hotel staff for help.
2. do not want to get electrocuted. electrical socket was hanging out of the wall, no one came to fix it, plugged a hairdryer in, and got burned because it started flaring up.
3. do not want your bathroom to smell like urine. we asked for bathroom to eb cleaned and the pee smell would not go away. it must have been on the walls or the shower curtain. we had to place lemons and orange peel on the bathroom so we could nto ouke when using the bathroom. everytime we showered, the pee smell would be enhanced.
4. actually want to see in the room. both lightbulbs were not working on the bed.
5. do not want to be watched by peeping toms. two young guys from across our room in a flat on our same street would watch us, and also followed us one night when we left the hotel.
6. need to see where you are walking in the hallway.....no lights on in the end of the hallway where the stairs were, and of course we had to take the stairs, because for 6 days, THE ELEVATOR did not work.
7. want to be near the action. it is a 20 minute, uncomfortable walk tot he main area because it is only a narrow road going there without a sidewalk and you must dodge traffic to get to the promenade. stay on the promenade. rooms are cheap and sometimes include breakfast.

on a plus side, they have a swimming pool

in essense, please do yourself and favour and don't stay here.

The most depressing hotel we have ever stayed in and we have visited 30 countries in the last 5 years!

It is damp, there was a cockroach in our room and the toilet facilities stank!
There was no soundproofing between our room and the one next door so we could hear the guy snoring at 3am in the morning. We were also awakened by the very loud rubbish trucks which come to collect rubbish at 2am! The air conditioning unit did not work and looked like it hadn't worked for a long time. The TV didn't work either

The place is also a brisk 20 min walk into Larnaca town centre. The staff were friendly enough and the breakfast the next morning was of good quality. Just the physical state of the place is a bit depressing. Not that cheap either.

We stayed at this hotel for one night at the start of a holiday as it was close to the airport and our flight was a late evening arrival. We stayed in a family room, and we hated it.

Hotel Reception was dark and dingy, with unhelpful bored staff. Any questions about evening food, nearby restaurants etc were greeted with monosyllabic answers.

The room itself was interesting. There was three "rooms" in the suite, a bedroom with three beds, a bathroom and another room with a kitchenette/bedroom! The rooms were dirty, dingy and depressing. The beds were uncomfortable and the furniture was well past it's best. The fixtures and fittings looked as if they had been bodged together.

Breakfast the following morning was a buffet style affair in a large dining room that could have done with a lick of paint. The furniture was a random mix of different styles of chairs and one rather off-putting point was the staff smoking outside the window.

We didn't bother complaining. It was late, we were tired and were moving on in the following morning. The only positive aspect was the free wifi htospot.

We won't be back!

Room Tip: If you want a good room, go elsewhere.
