TravelPod Member ReviewsSan Remo Hotel Larnaca
We stayed in 4 hotels in Cyprus over a 10 day period, and this was not one of the better, but the price is good.
Friendly reception staff at check in and helped with taxi booking. Room a decent size and clean. Breakfast fine. Location is ok, but not great, you can walk to the salt lake, Makenzie beach and town, but none are exactly close, so can feel like a bit of a task just to go for dinner. The buses in the area are not the best either.
Wifi is not free anywhere in this hotel which is inexcusable in this day and age. We often stay in hostels and they provide it! Internet and PCs are available but very expensive (every restaurant in town offers it free!)
Breakfast finishes at 9.30 am which doesn´t help you feel on holiday and was earlier by a whole hour compared to the other hotels we stayed in Cyprus.
The taxi reserved by hotel to take us to bus station was over 15 minutes late, so we nearly missed our bus. Not the hotels fault but something to bear in mind.
Larnaca is a reasonable place, and this hotel does for a couple of nights near the airport, but I would not want to spend a week´s holiday at this hotel nor in Larnaca for that matter! (Pafos overwhelmingly gets the holiday vote...)

... went to bed!!!! All in a days' work.
Now I am in a place that is so different to where I have been for the last few days. It’s normal. You can go to a café and have a beer, wear shorts and a singlet, the temperature is a nice 30 degrees and the people are normal and very relaxed ( Greek style living). The only thing the same are the costs. No backpacker places so you are forced into a hotel which is always more expensive and ...
... It is a family tavern one of the most popular in Larnaca. Prices are reasonable and the food is excellent.
The second one is To Sieradiko and you will be thrilled not only with the food but the interior as well. You can mention my name in both if you wish. It is on the road that leads to St. Lazarus Church from the beach. Natalie will be more than helpful to guide you if you only ask her.
IN ALL: My stay was ...
... studious research, I found and recommend Art Cafe 1900 and Militzis. I had one of the best lamb dishes (outside of lamb chops) ever. The problem with lamb (particularly in the Mediterranean) is that is either stewed to be like pot roast or grilled on kebabs until dry. This dish, however, was cooked in the oven with spinach and onions and the slathered lamb remained juicy and pink.
As for nightlife, it wasn't great, but better than ...
... time for family. Hence my great luck and gratitude that I know find myself welcomed into the home of this lovely Cypriot family.
And so now the sun sets over the city, dipping behind the Troodos Mountains and the temperature dropping from the balmy 31 degrees of the day, but with no apparent loss in humidity. I'm fortunate to have been provided with a very tidy and well equipped room, with wooden venetian ...
Internet access: Free Wi Fi works well in all public areas but if you wish to have it in your room then you have to pay a small fee.
Conference rooms: There are facilities and rooms for business and conference meetings, gala and private parties. A large number of guests are businessmen by the way!
Swimming pool: I have not much to comment on the swimming pool area as it is kept closed during winter but even if I were here ...
