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...)

The ancient city of Kition is identified by the ancient Jewish historian Josephus (37-100 A.D.) as Kittim in Hebrew (Ant. 1.6.1). The area of Kition was inhabited as early as the 13th century B.C. by Mycenaeans and then later by Achaean refugees by ~1200 B.C. after the destruction of the Mycenaean populace in Greece. The original city was composed of mud-brick houses with cyclopean, ...
... in 45 A.D. Barnabas joined forces with Saul of Tarsus (later to be called Paul) and John Mark and set off on a great preaching itinerary around the eastern Mediterranean area. As Barnabas continued the work of preaching the gospel in Salamis, he was captured in 57 A.D. by Jews who objected to his preaching in the synagogue and he was imprisoned, tortured and then stoned to death by Syrian Jews in Salamis. The Jews attempted ...
... good eats the past couple of weeks, I needed some exercise tonight, even if it was along an ugly stretch of road.
Being a Saturday night, Finikoudes, Larnaca's seafront promenade, was hopping with people out strolling, and also catching a performance of traditional Cypriot folk dancing, making for a half-decent final evening in Cyprus. So the final night in Cyprus ended up pretty much the same as the first night - back at Tuck Inn for one more killer kebab!
... In reality breakfast was more than adequate with biscuits, muffins, small pastry apple-pies, halloumi, daily fresh homemade cake, ham and cheese, honey and yoghurt, boiled eggs, sausages, croissants, apples and juice. What more would one want! Buffet opens daily from 7:30 am until 10:00 am at the ground floor (breakfast area). A nicely decorated back garden is also available for breakfast –weather permitting!

Feel the Real Hospitality, - Good Value for money!
This might be my 4th or 5th time of staying at the Frangiorgio Hotel Apartments. I happened to be in the round area of Larnaca those days and thought to drop by for a night stop here as well. Being a family-run business you will immediately feel the Cypriot hospitality.
Reception: I find the people behind the ...
