“A good average hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Lonely planet has this hotel, as a top choice for Lefkosia area. I was not impressed by the value of the hotel for the price. We had problems with the safe, for which we received the master key, to open and close it (not a good security process). The rest. was not open, although it appears in their leaflets, along with Lonely Planet's. While it is close the pedestrian area, which is a good place to start the walled walks, the immediate area around is not so nice. And parking is about 100 meters away.

Room Tip: Book and stay at the Holiday Inn, which is about 1/4 km away, by the bus station.

This is my fourth stay at the hotel this year. I really like it here. The rooms are clean and well decorated and the beds very comfortable. The location is excellent - right in the heart of Nicosia. The staff are delightful and really friendly which is particularily welcoming for a lone business traveller. And of course fantastic to have an outdoor pool to cool down in as Nicosia can get extremely hot. The breakfasts are not spectacular and it can be noisy (they emply the municipal bins on the corner at 4.00 in the morning), but these are just small bug bares. It is certainly the nicest place I've stayed in Nicosia and i will definitely be back............

Room Tip: The corner suites are the largest with balcony but not outside furniture

The Royiatiko Hotel is a great option for those who want a comfortable hotel right in the middle of the old town. The main pedestrian mall is one block away, and the border crossing is about a 5 min walk away along the pedestrian mall. Once we found the hotel (the directions on the hotel's website are extremely complicated and we got lost on the way), we were able to see all the sights on foot.

The hotel itself feels new and is comfortable, despite having rooms on the smaller side (though the mini fridge was a plus). It is on a fairly quiet corner, and we were not disturbed by any noises at night. There is a small but really nice pool just behind the lobby and bar/restaurant, which is great for hanging out day or night (with the free wifi). The bar/breakfast service was excellent and friendly.

A few minor nits: Very hard to find (lots of one way streets). Parking is a block away (down a one way street) in an unguarded lot. No doorman. Wired internet in the room never worked. Stairhall light timer is manual, so be careful in the dark!

But these are minor complaints, and we enjoyed our stay very much,

I stayed one night in the Royiatiko hotel and am happy I didn't stay
longer. The hotel is located in a run down, seedy part of downtown. All
night long I heard cars drive by with their stereo blaring Greek music.
Checkin area is not air-conditioned; they have a floor fan to cool that
area. That should have tipped me off. The room has paper thin walls. I
was located 4 rooms down from the elevator yet everytime it pinged to my
floor, I heard it as if it opened its doors in my room. Noise is not
muffled since the floors are not carpetted, not in the hallway and not
in the room. The minibar is empty. If you want a drink you have to bring
it with you or go to the bar. The furniture is early-neo-Euro-trash -
everything is leather bordered from the bed, to the mirror frame. There
is not a single printed item in the room. No brochures. No tourist books
of what to do. The more I think about it, I should have asked for the
hourly rate.

We stayed for one night at the Royiatiko Hotel while visiting Nicosia when holidaying in Cyprus. To find the hotel by car you do need a good street map and luck. There are a lot of one way streets.The hotel's car parking is a bit of space land hidden away down a narrow street. The hotel is nicely placed close to the old town and shopping area. Inside the reception,bar/resturant areas are nice and cool air conditioned and nicely furnished.The staff were friendly and helpful. They do have a problem with unwanted pigeons around the pool area which will need to sorted some how.

Room Tip: The room we had was a good size & well furnished. There was no nearby socket to plug the kettle...

I stayed at thr Royiatiko for two weeks in march on business, I found it to be a very good hotel and very close to every thing by foot.
The staff are very helpful and nothing is to much trouble,the hotel is kept very clean both inside and out, the pool and a well equipt gym are the icing on the cake.
I was very dissapointed when I had to extend my stay and they had no vacancies.
I would stay here again without any hesitation.
