“Disapointing hotel”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

Room was shoebox size, bathroom even smaller but newley furbished. Mini bar empty and fridge not connected. View on inner courtyard with noisy airco units. Lots of hair on the carpet on the first day, cleaned up the second day. Breakfast was acceptable but nothing fancy and breakfastroom was like a hospital cafetaria.
Bar closed. Busstation nearby but bus service is very poor. No pool or outside seating.
All in all a bit of a dungeon and overpriced comparing to nearby hotels. Will never go there again !

I stayed at this hotel during a business trip recently.
The staff were helpful and the rooms were very spacious and clean. Another reviewer said he had problems with WiFi but l must admit I didn't have this problem.
Facilities were a bit limited as they were renovating the restaurant whilst l was were there so breakfast buffet was split over two rooms- rather inconvenient, as I was alone and I didn't want to leave my bag so had to carry it each time I wanted to get something else from the breakfast buffet. It will be nice though once it is complete.
It is also within easy walking distance for the Town centre which was very convenient.
The downside was the noise from outside, my room was located at the front of the hotel and the noise was very bad from passing traffic both day and night, worse still the alarm from the fire station across the road and the fire engines once three times in one night, better sound proofing is definately required.
Also despite having many lamps l didn't feel any were bright enough to do work easily.
I would stay at this hotel again but would insist on not being in a room at the front, don't know if the rooms at the side or back are better though.

Room Tip: Thr rooms at the front get the sun in the afternoon and evening but unfortunately a lot of noise fro...

A pleasant place to stay with helpful staff and nice big rooms. Facilities were a bit limited and they were renovating restaureant while we were there so breakfast buffet was split over two rooms- bit odd. Location was very good for old town and the hotel has its own car park for guests.

I stayed in the Castelli Hotel during a weekend trip to Nicosia. The Hotel is located in the city centre. The hotel is a small hotel with very helpful staff as they gave me and my partner great tips of what to see in Nicosia and where it is worth of going to!!! The rooms of the Hotel are nice, clean and have a nice balcony. We had a great time in the Hotel as well as in Nicosia therefore would for sure recomend it!

I have stayed in this Hotel for about a month during the build up of IKEA Nicosia. The hotel is small but nice and could say cosy. The location is good as you can be in the heart of Lydras street in about 5 minutes walking. The down side is that the rooms are not very well sound proof and my door did not close very safely, it needed maintenance. Also at the top floor were i was the wi-fi was accessible only near the door..... I do not know if all these small issues are fixed now but the overall image is quite good, especially for business needs.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are more quite but the wifi lacks sometimes

The hotel is o'k, but beware of their internet pricing policy. Upon arrival after asking, I was giving a daily wi-fi code, without telling, that it is not free. For three days before coming to Nicosia we've been staying in another hotel in Larnaca with free wireless. So imagine my suprise when at the checkout I was asked to pay 12,5 EUR (!) per day for the internet! It was another receptionist than the one during arrival, so there was not that much space to argue.
Later I checked the the booking.com information and the price for internet was indeed indicated there, but this hotel was booked and chosen by our friends in Cyprus, so I didn't bothered to make any enquiries beforehand.

I recently stayed in the one of the Executive Rooms at the Castelli Hotel, after being advised by the receptionist at the nearby Holiday Inn that the rates were cheaper the rooms were the same. In fact the Castelli Hotel shares some of the Holiday Inn perks (i.e. the pool, spa area and even the room menus are Holiday Inn) as they are owned by the same company. But if the Holiday Inns air conditioning was as weak as the Castelli I am glad we didn't pay the extra - we had it on the whole time we were there and I would say that the morning when we left (just an overnight visit to Nicosia) was just getting down a nice 18-20°. Needless to say our nights sleep was sticky in the 35°+ heat of late July.

The staff were lovely and the breakfast was great . Full cooked English and Continental style also. The food menu in the room also looked good. As is normal in Europe, no tea/coffee facilities were available in the room, although there was a coffee bar on the ground floor.

The bathroom was clean and well stocked. But it has to be said that the room had a worn look about it, with dusty, shabby, hanging off curtains and the lamps by the bed look like they had coffee spattered all over them. The TV channels only had news in English - but a selection of other Greek channels available.

For 100 Euro in the city centre, its OK - if you ask to see the room first then you should make a decision. If you're there to see a bit of Nicosia for a night its not too bad - but I am unsure if I would want to pay this rate for a week with the shabby state of the room itself.
