We having in the past stayed at several other Apartments in Paphos decided this time to stay at the Pahinia, without any doubt these are the best we have ever stayed at,very clean and with all the facilities needed for a perfect stay, loved our apartment so much we wished we could have taken it home with us, unbeatable views,location perfect, lovely staff who go out of their way to assist in any way they can, return we will most certainly will.

Room Tip: ask for a first floor room if you have difficulties with steps

We stayed in the Paphinia from 29th September - 13th October. Because we were arriving on a Sunday we contacted the apartment by email to find out the Apt number and where to find the key. We got a reply very quickly and they attached a map to the email so we knew where our Apt would be. As I have been coming to Paphos for the past 7 years I knew where to go.
When we arrived on Sunday night we found the reception area very quickly (look for Pizza Express on the sea front and head towards it and the reception area is on the left) We went through and we headed to Apt 211B which was a studio.
When we arrived we found the key waiting for us and when we open the door we were amazed at how big the studio was. The Air Con was also activated for us for our arrival and we went to paid them for it during our 2 weeks. It was 84 euro for 14 days.
There was a kitchen which had a washing machine, dryer, fridge/freezer, hob, microwave and all the other bits and bobs that you may need. Then you had the bathroom which was spacious and clean and then in the main apartment there was a double bed, dressing table, wardrobe, two tables, and TV (which was never on). There was also a ironing board and iron in the wardrobe and a hairdryer in the bathroom for you to use.
When we booked we knew we booked a studio and requested a twin if possible, we knew it wasn't guaranteed but we'd always wanted to stay at the paphinia and we knew we'd get by if there was just a double. So when we had it confirmed it was a double bed only we asked for extra sheets if possible, We were very happy when we arrived to find the sofa had been made into a 2nd bed for us..nice touch (Thanks)
The balcony had a sun lounger and a table and three chairs. They were also nice enough to let my mum use our balcony to sun-bathe on when we went out on day trips (she was staying at a different hotel)
The apartments was clean and modern. You got them cleaned 5 days from 7 and then cleaner was very good at her job. There was a double and a single wardrobe and plenty of drawers so lots of space for your stuff. There was so much space in this apartment.
The view from the balcony was stunning and we loved sitting on there watching the day go by. It got the sun up until about 3pm. And as our balcony was right at the end of the block next to pizza express we got a bit of entertainment every night from the bar down below us which included dancers, singers and a bit of karaoke, we got to watch through the opening on our balcony and enjoy and sometimes laugh at the performers. The music/singing usually finishes at about 11.30pm and never goes on until after midnight. We also got to watch some of the fireworks that went off on some of the boat trips when they arrive back at the harbour.
We had a problem with our bathroom sink on the 2nd day as the plug got stuck, we went up to the office in room 114 and told the problem and when we came back from our day out and the problem was fixed. The light on the balcony didn't work but we kept forgetting to let them know (sorry!), but it was nice sitting on the balcony with the lights from the harbour front.
The Paphinia is a wonderful place to stay and is the best self-catering I have stayed in and the views were just stunning. Hopefully we'll get to stay there again in 2014. Thank you to all the friendly and helpful staff

Room Tip: APT 211B is the final apartment in the block by Pizza Express and gets sun most of day and is very p...

Preferring to be independent & enjoy things at our leisure and therefore not wanting to be tied to Hotel routines & procedures i.e meal times, entertainment, we opted for self catering apartments in Paphos, somewhere we had never visited before.
The location was perfect, across the road from the sea, you can hear the waves roll in when lying in bed, 200 yards to the right is the Harbour and it's restaurants & bars and everything else 2 mins walk to the left!
You can watch the Sun rise from the balcony, which I did, and it remains shining onto it all day long if you wish to sunbathe and watch the world go by without leaving your apartment.
Facilities within were perfect, washing machine, cooker, microwave, cutlery etc. Good sized rooms & bathroom. We arrived around 8pm and as we walked toward the building were met by a lady attempting to entice punters to the bar & Karaoke, as she spotted our luggage she offered to show us to our apartments as the 'reception' was closed, on seeing the 'reception' room we gave each other a hesitant look and wondered what we were being led into! As I have explained above our worries were not founded but the reception room is a bit off putting as it was empty....of everything bar a desk and a note on a board! The key was left in the door and we let ourselves in to a very spacious and clean apartment.
The cleaners came every other day and changed linen, towels etc. When we did need to see someone there is another reception room at the rear of the block, the owner was there and very accommodating, we went to ask about departure and leaving our bags as we were not due to leave until late in the evening, we were informed that we could stay in the apartment until we had to go....FREE of charge!
I would highly recommend these apartments especially for location and amazing value and have already done so to friends and family who will be booking soon!

Room Tip: We stayed in 109 which was in the middle and just enough distance from outdoor restaurants located e...

We were advised though a review to notify the ownerswe would be arriving late and they would leave us a key and notify us by email where it would be. This worked well.
The apartment was very nice, very clean and of course a fabulous view. The bathroom is modern and fresh. The kitchen is very well equiped with all mod cons including a washing machine. There is a surcharge for the air con, we paid €6 per night. We accepted the fact that there sas no pool because the cost was low, however my sister paid a similar rate to us at the Pandream (our room rate plus air con = £40 approx) she paid about that and got air con and a pool but the location was not centrel. It just depends what your preferences are.
Would I stay there again? Absolutely
Improvements? Negociate the use of a pool with a local hotel or Apt block (however Splash bar has a pool for patrons) and the fitting of a safety deposit box -as the key is left outside for late arrivals

Room Tip: Sorry no pool or restaurant but I couldn't uncheck the boxes

We should add that air-conditioning is an optional extra and this has been made very clear for years. We have also made it very clear for the last three years that there is no swimming pool. Many people are falling into the trap of booking apartments because there is a swimming pool and then ending up in the pits. I could name a few names here but I won’t! There is a large safe for valuables in our office (flat 114).

We stayed here from September 22nd to October 5th having booked an apartment after a number of years of observing these and always intending to give them a try. The location is perfect, the view is incredible, the balcony really spacious and the apartment has everything you need. Cannot fault anything and considering the number of people passing through these apartments remain in excellent condition. Room cleaning and towel changes are frequent and, despite being in the centre of a busy harbour, the noise is of no problem whatsoever. Air conditioning is probably the quietest we come across in all travels, including 4 star hotels in the US, and, unlike many hotels, it is not limited to a minimum of around 22 degrees. Arrived late Sunday afternoon so office not open but, due to email correspondence with office, had no problem in parking our hire car or find the room and the key.
We were upgraded from a studio to a 2 bed apartment which was really appreciated as was the fact we were allowed to keep the room on our last day until late in the afternoon. We could say a lot more but it's all been said before in other reviews, we do agree with all the positive things said about these apartments and cannot understand how anyone could find any meaningful faults. We loved every minute and look forward to our next stay in this wonderful location.

Room Tip: Room on the front facing harbour get sun just about all day. Those nearer the east end get the morni...

I have to say the Paphinia Apartments were fantastic and feel like not reviewing them, for selfish reasons off course, as every one will want to go stay there and I will find availability harder when I go back. These are definitely the best appointed apartments in Paphos commanding wonderful sea views and lovely balconies to enjoy the panorama. We had a superior two bedroom apartment (121) it was spacious well equipped and emaculat, with a spacious balcony that the sun shone on all day until 5pm. The staff were very helpful and friendly and provided us with accommodation on our last day as we had a very late fight back they were in no hurry to get rid of us and even provided this at no extra charge. And if anyone over looks this place because they want a pool then more fool them as there is a brilliant municipal swimming area with showers changing rooms at the sea right outside the apartments. The sea is beautiful and is warm and much better than a chlorinated swimming pool, can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: All rooms have sea views the best ones are at the front the rooms in the square have a side sea view...
