The Classic Hotel
Ranked #6 of 26 Hotels in Nicosia
Reviewed 26 May 2011

In the few places in Cyprus where we found street signs, they were written either too small to be seen from an car or facing the wrong way. Finding our way to the hotel was more a matter of luck than skill, as attested to by other guests. The hotel is an interesting looking corner building with no street parking except at night, and only when you can find a space. The parking lot down the road about 1000 meters, behind a bus station, costs 5 Euros for the day (9-5). It is a tad far to load/unload the car.

The very open, expansive lobby has cushioned benches, and photos, paintings, and sayings lining the walls. The night manager on our arrival was very helpful and gave us a choice of rooms and locations. He upgraded our room to a larger and more comfortable one without increasing our rate. All the managers answered questions, gave directions and suggestions for meals, stores, etc. The hotel has a computer room with Internet access and printers for guest use, a reading room with very few books or magazines. They have a bar and restaurant, where they serve 3 meals a day.

Our large room had an entry way leading into the main room. Furnished with a firmly-cushioned couch, a narrow desk with flat screen TV above, 2 night stands, 2 twin beds attached at feet with firm mattresses, separate duvets with attached sheets, medium-size firm pillows, and bottom sheets that didn't fit, a small knee-high table, closet with 2 bottom drawers and hanging area with hangers, 2 shelves and a cupboard above with a fridge/minibar below. Adequate lighting was provided by 3 adjustable wall lights that from the night stands and the desk, a large lighted wall at the head of the bed, a light in the entry way, and the windows over the couch, which opened both vertically and horizontally, looking into a small courtyard below without any direct sun. There were 2 pairs of thick drapes that kept the morning light out. All electricity, except the fridge, was controlled by the room's entry key card. The spacious bathroom had a large (6 x 4 foot) walk-in shower with glass on one side and marble tile on the other, a shelf for one normal-sized shampoo bottle, and a hand-held head that could be set on the wall; temperature and water pressure were good. The square sink had counter space on one side and a narrow glass shelf over the toilet. The bathroom light switch was outside the door, and there was no fan. There was a mirror over the sink and an adjustable mirror on the side.

The buffet breakfast is “included” in the room price, altho on the bill, it is listed as 7.5 Euros. There was a huge selection, no limit on serving size or number, that would cover most people's idea of breakfast: beans, cooked tomatoes, eggs, bacon, toast, sweets, fruits of all kinds, cereals, crepes, yoghurt, juices, and different coffee/tea offerings.

Originally, we had booked a much smaller room that was not nearly as nice as what we got for 91euros. This is rather expensive, and having experienced the driving and parking issues in the city, we would probably stay outside the city at less expensive accommodations the next time. Overall tho, this hotel is very nice, has a terrific buffet breakfast and is within walking distance to the pedestrian zones and historical sites. It is an expensive hotel, however, so keep that in mind when budgeting.

We checked out all of the hotels in the old town of Nicosia (South Cyprus) and this was by far the best one. Much better than the Centrum hotel and much cheaper than the Holiday Inn. Not as central as other hotels but the old town is so small you get to the main street in 5min walking.

It is expensive for the rooms but it was ok for one night. It has a gym and a small sauna and has free wifi. It next to a Fire Station so you might be awaken by the sirens but all the rest is ok. Breakfast is good and staff are ok.

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.
