We went to Cyprus on business trip and conference in February 2013 for a whole week. The hotel Altius was booked by organizers, however I was curious to check the reviews on Tripadvisor as usual. How I was surprised hotel was listed but no any single comment showed. My first thought was either hotel is new or nobody stays there. I was right this hotel is a totally refurbished legendary Nicosia's Churchill hotel. After 15 years of being abandoned new owners completely renovated and opened under the new name of Altius in October 2012. Location is good to get to the city center and reach Ledra street in a walking distance of 15 minutes. Rooms are large and modern. All public premises looks like a kind of Scandinavian minimalism style with some historic touches from Churchill hotel period, like an authentic chandelier in the lobby. Hotel it is not big, about 50 rooms or so, however even during low season (e.g. February) the restaurant and a bar are all day open. The kitchen is trying to do their best, for example serving sophisticated traditional greek salad by adding extra ingredients, which are not necessary. The staff was friendly, we were offered by a refreshing drink immediately upon our arrival right at the front desk. During our stay several times we were greeted by a general manager within hotel areas. However the biggest surprise was a lady, marketing manager. During working hours she is taking care about hotel sales and on weekends she sings live at the bar impressing with her brilliant and strong voice, singing light jazz, traditional greek music and international hits in several languages. What a marketing approach, never had seen all working and all singing marketing manager at a hotel. Wow ! What else. Free wi-fi internet in rooms, ordinary breakfasts daily, refreshing Cyprian white wine after a long day. Hotel and especially the staff exceeded our expectations.
