The Hideaway Club Hotel
Travel Blogs from Edremit (Trimithi)
BUILDING: Part of the Atrium is a traditional 1912 historic building, fully renovated, combining modern comforts but at the same time retaining its traditional Cypriot charm with an intimate atmosphere and 3 categories of rooms of different standards.
ACOMMODATION: The hotel was fully booked during my stay and I was not able to experience a stay at an Executive or a Club room, not even had the chance to see what the rooms look like.

Nicosia is the capital and largest city (250,000 people) on Cyprus. Wiki says that, after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, Nicosia became the last remaining divided capital in the world. I suspect the Israelis and Palestinians would disagree.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Hideaway Club Hotel Edremit (Trimithi)
Recently stayed at the Hideaway Club in Northern Cyprus (---) which prompted me to write my first web review ever.
This is truly an experience for the seasoned traveller, who enjoys luxury, comfort and above all, the best service ever.
Forget the dust and the concrete , the ever encroaching building developments.Ignore also the rush hour traffic in and out of Kyrenia.
Arrived at midnight following a somewhat tiring , but pleasant flight from Heathrow and were greeted with a big smile by the "graveyard shift" staff.
Sad to say, we have just returned from a trip to The Hideway.. sad to say in that we did not want to leave.. We flew out on Saturday 1st April and were pleased to find the carriers had changed to Turkish Cypriot Airline - a huge bonus, pleasant staff, bigger aircraft and helpful when we asked for extra leg room for a passenger over 6 foot 6 inches tall! Having experienced a flight to Kyrenia last July with another airline, and forced to stay at Istanbul for over 2 hours on an extremely cramped, hot plane, this was a bonus flying into Anatylya and staying for an hour before making the 45 mins flight to Ercan in Northern Cyprus, and being whisked away to our destination, the Hideaway. We chose this because it is child free policy and we wanted peace and quite in superb surroundings with good service - and we got it. Staff were helpful, hotel rooms were excellant (and we didnt go for the suites) although we could not appreciate the excitement of fresh flowers, fruit and chilled wine at 3.30 am when we arrived! No need to take hairdryer or travel plugs or kettle (although tea/coffee/milk is provided for the first day, extras for tea bags /coffee are 20pence, milk 75 pence...) Talking of extras, there is a safe provided at 50 pence a day, and if you are feeling idle whilst laying around the lovely pool, soaking up the brilliant sunshine and admiring the fantastic views of mountains etc..waiter service is another 2 TL.. No need to take extra beach towels either as these are provided for around the pool. A car is a must (but we knew that from previous experience) We did'nt book in advance and got a brilliant deal at £15 per day (this included Collison damage waver, insurance, no excess) for a brand new Astra..) petrol around the Island is currently 15.50 TL.
We were recommended this hotel by friends and were not disapointed. It is such a relaxing hotel and very well organised we could have just stayed at the hotel. The rooms are very clean and well thought out with all the facilities. We had the meze at the restaurant and this was very reasonably priced and had good entertainment. Breakfast can be served to your room at no extra cost. I would return to the Hideaway tomorrow if I could and would recommend it to anyone. The only downside is the trek into town - about 15 mins by taxi.
We stayed at the Hideaway for the first time in May 2005. We decided on the Hideaway from looking at a number of hotels on the internet and weren't disappointed.
Right from the start the staff were helpful, allowing us to move rooms when our first one was too close to the road outside.
We stayed in a garden suite, which had plenty of outside space on the terrace. The pool was also fantastic - a decent size and not too crowded.
We flew to Larnaca and the hotel organised a taxi to pick us up - I'd recommend this as it is cheaper, and you avoid the stop in Turkey on the way.
Don't miss the castle - it is well worth the climb to the top for the views.
Having just returned from the Hideaway Club and also after reading the other reviews we can honestly say that our opinions are divided on this hotel. When we initially returned we felt pretty disheartened by our holiday on the whole but on reflection this was mainly to do with the tour operator and the "package" side of things and NOT the Hideaway Club. For what it's worth here's our review:
I always used to have a rule regarding holidays - there are so many places to see you should never go back to the same place. The Hideaway Club in North Cyprus made a mockery of that rule - we have gone back 6 years running!
My family have just returned from a five day stay at the Hideway Club hotel in the hills above Kyrenia in Northern Cyprus. The rooms were very pleasant, each having a small lounge area next to the bedroom. Unfortunately the bathrooms are very small (our rooms only had showers, no bath) and dark and would benefit from proper lighting. Our room rate included an excellent breakfast. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, but some of the extra charges are questionable...when paying our hotel bill we were charged an extra 5% because we were paying by credit card (something not mentioned at time of reservation). There was an extra charge of 50 p per day to use the safety deposit box in our room (we declined, and had to hand back the key!). Drinks in the bar/round the pool are all charged in UK pounds and were rather high we thought. The pool area is very pleasant and has a nice view over the coast below. A car is essential as there is not much within walking distance. Kyrenia town and the outskirts are being hideously overdeveloped, construction everywhere you look and every other shop is a British estate agent selling villas and apartments. There seems to be a large population of British expats in the area and many of the restaurants we sampled cater for them. The traffic along the coast road west of Kyrenia was very tiresome, bumper to bumper a lot of the time. All in all, the town and outskirts are best avoided as it's one of the ugliest places we have been to.
