Located just across from the national bank, near the Hilton and about 15 minutes walk from the old city, the Semeli hotel is a lovely choice in Nicosia. The hotel itself is lovely. The hotel is new and the lobby, bar and restaurant are all very nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There's free parking if you've rented a car and the location is convenient. It's an easy 15 minute walk through nice shopping streets to old town Nicosia.
We'd booked online a room with two twin beds and specifically asked in the booking if we could get them joined up. When we arrived, that's exactly what we got. Our room was nice, reasonably sized with a balcony and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom wasn't large, but had sufficient space and all the fixtures were new and very nice - particularly the multiple shower heads to choose from. There was a coffee pot in room, as well as a complementary water battle and local wine and a full range of bath products including toothbrushes and a razor.
Our rate included breakfast which was 7-10 daily and had a nice range of buffett options (cereals, yoghuts, english and continental breakfast options and fresh fruit). We enjoyed having an evening drink in the bar, which was comfortable, could serve the full restaurant menu and had very friendly staff.
Overall, starting with our complementary welcome sample of the local liqueur on check in we enjoyed our stay at the Semeli.
