We stayed here over xmas because the place we normaly stay (Louis King Jason apartments) was closed for renovation,to be fair its cheap but I was put off by some of the general tattiness of things,that make it seem a bit down at heel ....like a sealed off wire protruding from the wall above the water coller socket,it just creates the wrong impression and the corners of the bathroom were not clean,the lift worked but looked as if it might break any moment because it looked a bit shabby inside.
The Nereus is suituated in a good location to get around paphos by foot and I warmed to the hotel after a few days of really not being sure due to the first impressions I got.
The breakfast is okay,the coffee is nice and they provide mugs,evening meals could be better sometimes too english and not unlike school dinners on some evenings but most of the clientel are quite old and probibly too stuck in their ways to eat more cypriot food.
I was put on a downer by some of the clientel older English people who moan a lot about cats ect..Cats I mean its cyprus they have cats get over it .and some of them seem a bit mean and stingy..come on your on holiday cheer up.
Entertainment the female singer in the red dress on xmas eve was good so enthusiastic but the rest of the time was a bit like phoenix nights lots of kareoke and bingo but the oldies liked it..I would have liked to hear some cypriot music at least one evening,and the seats in the bar are very hard you need foam cushions.
But to be fair this hotel is not terrible its cheap and budget ie no frills I just think its a shame that people may be put off by first impressions such as general shabbiness,my sheets were clean and smelled nice but so well worn so that you could see through them, I dont want to be too hard on this hotel because its not terrible it just could do with a bit more attention to the small things because when the older customers die off that you cater for you need to create a better impression to attract the younger people.
It does have more character than one of the big posh hotels on the seafront which is why I chose it instead and here lies its charm but please just some attention to the small things the right people will remember and come back and the stingy ones you dont need.
would I stay again possibly.......in preference to a big hotel.but I would prefer to stay in my usual place even though the price is more because its a much better more cheerfull experience..but thats just me
So to sum up, good as a cheap stay dont expect Frills and remember there will be cats and cockroaches and lizards (but not in the rooms) its cyprus for heaps sake have fun...
