“super atmosphere, great bourek”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

After a hard day sightseeing with friends it was so pleasant to come to the Buyuk Han for a coffee and marvellous, home made ( and huge!) bourek. Relax and people watch or have a walk around, check out the souvenir and craft stalls and admire the architecture. It's a gem of a place!

“a lovely piece of restoration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

I haven't been here much, I should go more. My boyfriend goes all the time just to have coffee.
Restored to what it would have been like in the middle ages. A "BIG INN". Great stalls. Lovely cafe making home made borek pastries. Worth a visit.

Culturally very interesting and beautifully renovated old inn set around a large quadrangle, now converted to small handmade craft and souvenir shops and eating places, with both upstairs and downstairs galleries. very attractive and good for photos.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Found this on a day trip into Turkish part of Nicosia, interesting to read the history behind the building and its renovation, it uses over the centuries to the present day.
The upper gallery has been given over to craft shops and the lower, ground level has restaurants.
