... exploring the island during the day and experiencing the night life in the evening.
(As a side note: I think we have finally figured out the timing on the island: 9pm-11pm is dinner 12am-3am club) We kept showing up way to early....embarrassing.

“During the Ottoman siege of 1570 a Greek commander was killed on that very spot. So it became a place where the Greeks paid homage to the Greeks who lost their lives in that battle. (N: Nicosia was under Venetian rule at that time). Later it became the spot where people came to ask for a favour, make a wish, like getting money. I mean everyone, Greek and Turkish alike. They burn candles, ...
... which house, there are no entrance doors near the chairs. Yesterday I experienced something similar in Lefkosia on the other side of the demarkation line. Three youngsters were having drinks at a table on the pavement, but all around them the buildings were shut tight. Where did those drinks come from? And why were they there in this empty space? Happy hour in ...
... But you also pay only one third of the price, and for only one night, it is just fine for us.
We also tried couch surfing, which we already described. Living with local people and receive their hospitality is really nice. But of course you can not do this, when you don't know, where you'll end up next day.
Yesterday we tried a hostel. Not quite a hotel, but close. It's a commercial place, like a youth hostel, but then for grown ups. The good thing is, that you normally ...

It took us a couple of hours to get near to the border control which has a UN buffer zone running between the north side and south side so we were very excited to see UN soldiers with light blue hats and enter a UN zone for the first time. The border control was an large shelter and we were strongly advised that no photos to be taken and to expect a long wait as the TRNC like to make it inconvient for visitors ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Pia Bella Kyrenia
I had heard quite a lot about this hotel from reading the reviews on it. This of course was before I chose it.
I have never stayed at a more welcoming & friendly Hotel ever, anywhere.
The staff keep the place so clean & all problems are dealt with, the shower head didnt fit , fixed within 24hrs.
Every day you are asked if all is OK, & all comments are noted & checked the following day.
I went with my wife Son (3yr old) & mum 60odd.
Lovley food, clean tidy, rooms, comfy beds, most of the people we met there had been at least once before.
Highly reccomend the Place. & would go again.
Kyrenia 15 mins walk ( a bit hazaardous on the roads) but you feel safe & comfortable.
A must visit is Peanuts restaurant, fantastic food..
The Hotel is a 25 Minute walk from the harbour of Kyrenia or Girne as the Turks have renamed it. Not much around the hotel except a large Supermarket within 5 minutes. The original building is on the main road & a newer block in the grounds that is probably why it has 2 Swimming Pools. We paid extra for Superior rooms & they were very nice, large with tea making & Mini Bar in the original building 3rd floor no lift, balcony faced the road a bit noisy. Food served outdoors good quality buffet. Old clientel no children 99% British so you could not blame the Germans for all the sunbed booking.
we have just returned from the Pia Bella Hotel -Kyrenia (GIRNE) and it was a pleasure to stay there,
We spent two weks here from 27th may -10th june. It has ben 2 years since we last went to this hotel. When we arrived in the early hours fo the morning, we were met by Sied who was rememebered from our previous vist and it was so nice. Then we saw Ali and it was nice to be rememebered by all the staff. They have made changes to the hotel, a new restaurant and lounge bar. It is very nice. The food was very nice. The breakfast could be a b it more choiced, e.g. sausage bacon tomatoes. The two poolareas are lovely and the gardens are really lovely too. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The superior room we had was clean and the maid did a good job of keeping it tidy and clean for us everyday. We really cannot find any fault with this hotel. The pool bar at night is a good place to mmet other guests and have a drink and natter with them. We met some really nice people. There is plenty of areas for you to sunbathe and we never had to much trouble at all getting a couple of sun beds by either of the pools. We never saved any beds as was not needed. Remember to take mosquito repellent as i got bitten quite badly. All in all we enjoyed our holiday and feel that if you choose to go here you will not be dissappointed at all. We can understand why so many people go back year after year and also stay more than once a year. Have a great time, we did.
Great place to stay
Have just returned from Kyrenia and our first stay at the Pia Bella. We were much impressed by the Hotel,its friendly and courteous staff,the standard of catering and the bar prices.Thoroughly recommended. One minor "moan", while tea and coffee making facilities are advertised,the provision of tea bags and coffee are limited to the first night,(Brand new customers only!!!)So a trip to the nearest supermarket is necessary if you want your early morning cuppa. However,have no qualms about booking to stay there
Best Hotel in the area
We have stayed at the Pia Bella Twice and never been disapointed with the service or the standard of the rooms. The staff are wonderful, the hotel spotless clean and nothing is a problem to them. I have stayed in both types of rooms (standard and superior)and the only real difference was the balcony. The hotel has increased slightly in size, which I'm not sure is a good thing. However I would not hesitate to return to N. Cyprus and I wouldn't even consider any other hotel but the Pia Bella. Zereh, Ali, Mustafa and all the rest are brilliant. Kyrenia is getting busier with all the new building work going on but there are still lots of other places to see and the beaches are brilliant, you just have to seek them out. A trip to Niazzi's restuarant is a must.
Excellent Hotel for 3 stars
An excellent hotel, friendly staff, try and book a superior room which have more space and views over the mountains range. Food was buffet style, english breakfast and mixed buffet evening meal. The only monor point is that you have to pay for all drinks in the evening including coffee.
Be prepared for dust outside the hotel as Kyrenia is one big building site for thousands of holiday homes.
We enjoyed our stay at the Pia Bella Hotel in Kyrenia (or Girne as it is known). The staff are very friendly and the rooms are comfortable, quite modern and very clean. We opted for the superior rooms so can't speak for the others. The hotel has been extended over the years to incorporate a second pool and a new building (this is where the superior rooms are).
