“Best place to stay in old city”
Reviewed 30 March 2011

Small quiet modern boutique hotel, refurbished to a standard which puts the nearby Holiday Inn to shame., and at a fraction of the price.. Excellent spacious rooms, free internet and good buffet breakfast; all we needed.

It is a conveniently placed hotel. The reception area & the bar are its strong points. Wifi internet access available as well as seminar rooms. Nice overall, but I was not happy with the cleaning ladies. My window was very dirty and the towels have seen better days too. Overall good for business, I do recommend it.

Excellent 3-star hotel, reasonably priced for Nicosia. In walkng distance to shopping and the historic areas. My room was large and comfortable, including a spacious bathroom. Wi-fi was free and signal was strong. The public areas are very attractive. The breakfast buffet could have been a little better, but was okay. My only disappointment is that the room, though very contemporary, was under-decorated. I would have enjoyed some stuff to look at on the walls. The hotel has a massage service.

The hotel is newly renovated and very stylish. Our room was clean and a good size. The bathroom was compact and it's configuration a bit strange. But for two nights, the hotel served it's purpose as a base for exploring the old part of Nicosia. Our room faced the street which at times was jammed with traffic but the windows kept most of the noise out. Parking is a problem if you have a hire car as the hotel has no facility, so we had to use the public car park further down the road. The cost isn't too prohibitive but it's a hassle if you are staying for many days.

I am an occasional visitor to Cyprus and I was pleased to find that the Classic has not only been refurbished but has also lost none of its charm.
Even though I was there on business I took advantage of their special offer and enjoyed the fare on offer in the Blue Bar.
Nicely refurbished, central location - what more could I want.

Absolutely beautiful renovation. The rooms are great and the location in the old town is fantastic. Give it a try.

I came to "CLASSIC HOTEL" twice, and spent 2 and three nights. Recently renovated.
The hotel is in the city walls of the old city of Nicosia actually. It is a contemporary hotel, contradicting to its ancient neighbourhood.
It is about 12 minute walk from the shopping area and business centre where one can find restaurants and bars.

I found this hotel quite expensive for the facilities offered. It has nothing luxurious in it! The room was not very spacious either, but it was clean and there were fresh clean towels changed daily. The bathroom was small. Of course there was a mini bar and a cable TV just to have my cold water in it and as usual it was just like any other mini bar with the usual snacks and chocolates or small bottles of wine, but everything was overpriced.
I wonder how many people buy these things, or how old they are. I have this thought every time I see a mini bar in a room!

There is a free internet access in the business centre for free.
The manager of the hotel is running it himself along with the staff at the reception who are courteous and helpful.
I had a comfortable stay, but I still think the hotel is very expensive for what it offers!
I recommend this hotel for a short stay only!
