The Semeli hotel is a relatively new addition having been built in 2011, and a very positive newcomer to the Nicosia scene. The reception area is pleasant and comfortable, and there is a decent bar area and restaurant.
The rooms are very clean and well maintained. Though the decor won't be too everyone's taste, the quite traditional furnishings and paintings make for a characterful and personal environment.The beds are comfortable, there is a very serviceable desk in the rooms and a balcony which gives a nice view over Nicosia from the higher floors. There is free Wifi in the rooms, which is of average speed, and a kettle with tea bags and instant coffee is provided. The highlight of the room is the great shower, which has multiple settings including massage and can also be used as a sauna. One weakness of the room is the limited space for the toilet in the bathroom, you are quite squashed between the shower and the wall, and if you are built large you are likely to find this a squeeze. The complementary water, wine and fruit on arrival is a nice touch.
Breakfast was fine, a combination of hot items and a typically Greek selection of cold cuts, yogurt etc. Staff were pleasant.
The hotel is not right in the centre of Nicosia, but the area is pleasant and it is easy enough to get around.
