I'm really grateful to Trip Advisor as you can get a general idea of a place before you try it out for yourself and - the reviews here did not disappoint. Much of what is below has been said before but I hope this review provides more insight into our personal experience of Pyramos Hotel.
The décor of the hotel is grand, beautiful and modern and I was DAZZLED by the fact that this was only a two star hotel. Were it for the ground floor interior alone, this would easily register as a three star stay. Unfortunately, the splodges of dirt on the carpets upstairs ruins this illusion but I'm sure (and I hope) this will be sorted in time.
Perfectly situated about 5 minutes walk from the Harbour and local amenities, Pyramos was near enough to the 'life' and activity of Kato, Paphos but at a distance that allowed for peace and quiet when required.
Upon arrival we were greeted by 'NICK the barman' and he kindly helped us with our luggage without hesitation. The other gem of Pyramos was ORSI who, from the start to the finish of our holiday was on hand to help with a range of queries having accumulated a good knowledge of the area. She was a very pleasant and lovely member of staff.
The room was big enough for us but good luck if you are a pound overweight as quite frankly you will have trouble fitting in the cubicle of a shower. I wondered how some of the obese guests managed to wash themselves and I could only surmise that they did it limb by limb popping each one at a time in to the shower.
We didn't have the most spectacular of views and found ourselves facing the back of a shisha bar and on one occasion we noticed a PEEPING TOM staring over directly into our room - which freaked us out for the rest of the duration of our stay. Unless you want Jack Nicholson from the Shining staring over at night, make sure you close your curtains when you have the lights on.
The television channels were limited but we enjoyed watching CNN world news. The bed was comfortable but we couldn't get the air conditioner to work. We were thankful for the free lockable storage in the room.
The STARS of the Pyramos show were no doubt the three cleaners - especially the two young girls who did a spectacular job every morning of cleaning our room to a high standard - we very much appreciate the effort that they made and can say with confidence that our rooms were pine fresh every morning. I hope they are earning a decent wage because they deserve it and it can be put towards their Education (one girl tried her very best to speak English, bless).
We feel that one way to immediately improve Pyramos hotel would be to offer a wider variety at breakfast as the slices of cucumber, tomato and processed cheese did not suffice in the morning. I lived off the marble cake that was offered for a limited period but would have appreciated some cheap cereal such as cornflakes - my stomach was not used to this sparse breakfast.
Overall, a very good experience. Thank you Pryamos and I hope you do take these comments on-board so that you may get more business and perhaps and extra star!
