Despite is limited size, the place is nice and fresh. Worth a visit although the shops do not offer a great variety of stuff.

The Great Inn is located in Nicossia in North Cypsrus.When The ottomans occupied Cypruss , they biult many places and historical buildings.One of them is Great Inn , It was used for trading place at that time..and also very small mescid in middle of it.
This place has small shops and they are still used for trading.It is worth to visit...

This was such a pleasant reprieve from the heat (already scorching in June) and the crowded streets. It's a gorgeous building to look at, and the history and restoration are interesting points: you can see photos etc of this on the wall by the entrance. There are small craft shops lining the top and bottom floors, with unique artwork in some and souvenirs in others. I didn't eat here, but there is plenty to eat if you wanted to, in the shade as well.

Stopped by on a day visit from Nicosia Cypriot side to Turkish side for shopping. Lovely atmosphere - there was a live band playing which added to the laid back feel to the area. The architecture is amazing and lots of places to shop or have a snack and a drink. Would love to go back.

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!
