“Not value for money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

I had to stay in Nicosia for business as this is not a holiday/ weekend break destination. I picked the hotel as it was the nearest to a funciton I had to attend.

The hotel itself, I believe is a 3 star and for a 3 star it is ok. Basic amenities, old fashioned rooms, basic breakfast etc.

What I wasn't comfortable with was the cleanliness of the room which I was not 100% sure of. There were some vague stain on the sheets and the overall feeling of the room was that it was not spotless. The piece de resistance, was a hole on the floor which was neatly covered by the carpet. Unfortunately this was discovered by my wife who was in high heels at the time- she was not happy about it! Another issue for me was that the minibar was locked and I only discovered this in the early morning hours when I woke up and needed some water.

As I said, the hotel, for a 3 star is OK. However the price (special offer at EUR100 for one night), I thought was ridiculous, especially as I had recently paid slightly more to stay at a 5 star beach resort in Cyprus. Furthermore the receptionist insisted that I should prepay the whole amount instead of paying upon my departure which I thought was strange.

My low rating has more to do with its price rather than the actual hotel.

I liked staying in Europa hotel - nice rooms, good servise, great breakfast. It seemed a little to far from the center, where the life is. But good for a business trip - very quiet to sleep there.

I stayed in this hotel for a week with work as part of a large group.
The rooms can have 3 beds which makes it cost effective, each room has a tv, table and chairs and bathroom with bath and shower and a supply of shampoo/ bath gel.
We were next to the main road - all rooms have a road- to be honest at night the main road was probably quieter than the boy racers by the back of the hotel.
Breakfast was lush a nice spread of cold and hot options.
There is a bar downstairs where drinks are arounf 6/7 euros.
Next to the hotel is a Iriosh bar- prices are mostly similar maybe cheaper for beers. It got busier as the night wore on and also serve a selection of food.
There is a petrol station and a late opening convience store which sells food snacks and drinks.
Town is a walk away and we found ourselves a nice Taverna were prices were alot cheaper and the locals were so friendly.
There is a mini bus service to Larnaca airport also.
PS if you love cats- beware i nearly brought one home.
Staff were friendly and we had no issues :-)
Free WIFI too

I stayed in the Europa for two nights while on a work trip. I found the hotel comfortable ( the beds certainly weren't too hard, they perfect for me) and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. It is a short taxi ride (about 6 Euros) to the old city. I thought the hotel was good value and would certainly stay there again.

Short stay at this hotel mainly because it was close to work. I have never experienced such discomfort, the beds are the hardest I have ever experienced. At night there is also a constant noise from motorbikes, which is disturbing. On the positive side staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast was more than adequate.

I spent a week at the Europa whilst on business in Nicosia. The rooms are like any other 3 star, souless and dull. The aircon pumped out hot air so my room was stifling for the majority of the time, depsite having borrowed a fan from reception to cool things down. The food is good but your choices of a location to eat are not so appealing - the charmless bar or your souless room. To get to anything interesting you need to drive or take a cab. I felt that the rooms were reasonably clean until I found a dirty pair of knickers by the side of my bed from a previous occupant. I was glad to get out of the place by the end.
