Cleopatra Hotel
Ranked #14 of 26 Hotels in Nicosia
Reviewed 9 July 2012

If you are going to be staying on the Greek side of Nicosia I can recommend the Cleopatra Hotel on Florinis street.
I frequently flew to Cyprus, on business. Apart from the convenient location, which enabled me to walk to the office, I loved the friendly staff and the lovely atmosphere of the poolside restaurant.
Food is excellent, rooms clean and comfortable, even though I was not in one of the top rooms I found it very satisfactory.
My business trips are over, due to redundancy, but I know where I'm staying if I get to Cyprus again.

Stayed there in May 2012 while on a business trip to Lefkosia. Friendly staff. Walking distance away from the city center. Very nice swimming pool. Terrific professional gym with all necessary equipment and facilities, instructors are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, some renovation would be needed in the coming years though. Perfect hotel for a business trip.

Room Tip: First floor provides larger balconies and easier access to swimming pool.

The major plus points of Cleopatra are the location (the business district, old town district and several nice restaurants and bars are all within walking distance) and the very helpful staff.

The rooms were somewhat disappointing though: slightly unstable furniture, noticeable wear of carpets, floor and fittings, doors with panel gaps big enough to see through and a quite bad leak in the bathroom.
At least the room equippment included everything that a decent hotel should have and the room was quite clean.

All in all, it's a good enough hotel, suitable for a short stay in Nicosia but I guess a basic renovation of the rooms would make it much better.

The main advantage of this hotel is its location in the heart of the business district. It is also a walking distance from the old part of the city known for its tourist restaurants and shopping opportunities. Cleopatra hotel serves more the business travelers. This is why it is less crowded in the summer. It is one of the limited hotel options in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus. Tourists usually have day time visits to Nicosia and return to the seaside resorts in the south of the island.

The rooms are relatively small in size. Ask for the refurbished ones. The corridor on the floors is very narrow. Some of the rooms open directly on the staircase. Fairly good internet connection is available in the rooms. The rate for internet is Euro 15 per day or Euro 6 per hour. The hotel has good gym facilities.

The staff is limited in number but very friendly. I had a conversation with Stavroula at the reception, who gave me all necessary information. I did not see any doorman or concierge in the hotel. It is pretty like self service.

An advantage is the availability of free parking lot in the hotel basement, in an area not easy to find parking space.

All in all, the Cleopatra is an average hotel: It was in great location for my purposes, the rooms were a little outdated and needed refurbishing. I really liked the hotel bar: innovative design, very friendly and helpful staff plus free Wi-Fi.

I've stayed at the Cleopatra several times on business over the last few years and decided it really is time to leave some feedback!

This is certainly a very compact hotel and the bedrooms are on the small side. However, this minor inconvenience is outweighed by the many good points this hotel has. Although small, the bedrooms are very nicely appointed (make sure you book a refurbished room though as the others are dated and worn). The furniture is smart, the bed comfortable, the bathroom clean and modern and the air conditioning is efficient (and fairly quiet when on a low setting at night).

Admittedly, the small size of the room (and balcony) means that you won't want to spend hours in it but then why bother coming to Nicosia if you're going to stay in your room?! (Honeymooners excepted of course).

The bar is very nicely designed with comfortable lounge seating or tables/chairs if you wish to dine. The lighting is low and sometimes the TV is blaring out in Greek but just ask Costas (the bartender) to turn your lights up and the TV down - he's a fabulous guy who will go out of his way to accommodate your needs.

The restaurant is cosy with the usual buffet breakfast n the mornings (nothing special but perfectly acceptable). I've never had lunch or dinner in the restaurant as there are so many great places to eat in Nicosia so can't comment on the food.

The pool area is pleasant with a pool bar (staff are friendly as they are throughout the hotel) and at night the pool area is set up for romantic, candlelit dinners (again, I always go out and so can't comment on the food).

There is a gym at the back of the hotel which I find excellent as Nicosia doesn't really lend itself to going out for long runs - the gym is a little hot but not enough to use as an excuse not to use!!

Wifi is available at a charge in your bedroom but is a good speed - for cheapskates out there, you can borrow a cable and access free internet in the bar if you wish.

The location of the hotel is just perfect for exploring Nicosia and eating out at night. Within a ten-minute walk you can either be in the heart of the old town, eating at the numerous tavernas, cafes and restaurants (or Wagamamas, McDonalds, TGIs etc for those less adventurous) or exploring modern shops .

Please note that being in such a central location, this does mean that there is traffic noise at night if you wish to leave your balcony door open. However, when closed, the sound -proofing is excellent.

Although a short drive in a taxi, I strongly recommend the Aegean restaurant - situated at the back of a bookshop in an older part of the city, the food and ambiance are both first class (book ahead and get an upstairs, balcony table). The restaurant is in an open courtyard so you can watch the stars as you eat some of the best Cypriot food in Nicosia. A little more pricey than most restaurants but well worth a visit.

All-in-all this is a lovely, friendly, cosy, clean and modern hotel in the heart of Nicosia - well worth considering if you're visiting the capital.

Room Tip: Make sure you specify that you want a refurbished room.
