I selected this hotel based on TripAdvisor recommendation for hotels in Larnaca. I used this hotel as my base to travel around for my short holiday in Cyprus. This mid-size hotel is located very near to the historical St Lazarus Church and about 5 mins walk from the happening beach/promenade.
I arrived on the first day of the Festival of the Flood and coincident it was raining heavily later that afternoon, shower of blessing!
The reception area and the Blu cafe in the small lobby area have the ultra-modern design. There are 2 small lifts on either side of the reception counter to access rooms upstairs which is very convenient if one of the lift break down. Was put up in a double room with two single beds and surprised that this room size is reasonable. The beds felt a bit hard for my liking. Room is simple but trendy modern in design and was cleaned every day. Noticed the towels inside the room were only changed once every two days, unless you requested it. There is a small well designed writing table with a small empty fridge underneath to keep our drinks cool. There is also a small round table inside the room to keep our toiletries since the washroom has limited storing space. The room also has a small flat screen TV, a water kettle, hair dryer and ironing board. But drinking water bottle is not provided inside the room. The washroom is clean, reasonable size shower cubicle with good strong water pressure. Room also has a balcony with a plastic table and 2 chairs which is very useful for smokers like me since all rooms are non-smoking room. My room balcony is facing an inner court yard and hence not much for viewing, only for smoking. Since room balcony is facing inner courtyard, did not encounter any heavy noise at nite even during the Festival of the Flood when I was there. There are other rooms with balcony facing the streets which might offer better view.
Like the free fast internet connection inside the room via LAN cable (borrowed from reception) and WiFi is also available in the reception/lobby area since I always traveled with my laptop.
Breakfast offered is decent continental-style included in the room rate and you can choose to take your breakfast in the lobby area or in the courtyard. The hotel is close to nearby restaurants and some nightlife along the promenade. A supermarket, called Smart is also located about 5 mins walk away to get drinks and titbits. I prefer to get my stuffs at the supermarket which offers more choices than at the sundry shop at the promenade. Do check with the friendly receptionists on the supermarket operating time as it closes early in the evening.
Front-desk personnel were very pleasant and helpful, Cleo, Violetta and hotel manager Andreas Ioannou TQ for the wonderful information and assistance. I had also arranged for a local tour, with Eman Tours to Nicosia & Troodos with the receptionist and the tour coach pick-up point is at a bus stop at the promenade which is about 5/10 mins walk away from the hotel. There is also a small corner at the lobby area to get leaflets, booklets, name cards or maps on Cyprus tourists information.
Overall very satisfied and value for money stay at this Livadhiotis City Hotel. I managed to book the room at €60/nite one day before arriving using one of the hotel rooms booking website through TripAdvisor.
