San Remo Hotel
Travel Blogs from Larnaca
Arrived at about 9pm and took cab to hotel for 15 euros, then quick change and into town for a few bevvies. The main street along seafront had a few places for a beer and a good atmosphere, but was quite pricey. The Brewery was worth a stop though. Then we headed into the backstreets behind the main strip where we found many smaller pubs and bars. …
... our mouths from the bottle, everyone got up on tables and danced (so logically we did too) and then we went back to the villa to tell everyone else to come over. At first they did not believe us (I mean, we could hardly believe we did all that as well!)
We ended the night with a bunch of dancing and karaoke at the bar where we also met some new friends from the UK who were there for a wedding. Around 3 am we all jumped in the pool ...

After more minutes of empty street I continue my stroll. Some shops in the adjacent street are open, but I can’t see anyone inside. I walk past a bookshop. Some paces further I halt. Someone in there must definitely know something about the niche. There are three people in the shop. The owner, a lady in her early fifties, smiles when I say: “Does someone here speak English? I would like to know what ...
Old tubes block a stretch of the tarmac, creating a spot where you're not supposed to park your car. So children can play there. But when is playtime? Public space is confiscated for private enterprise, like building a boat. Isn't that an odd place to build a boat: in the center of a walled city within a city that is miles and miles away from the sea?
... This special offer for lunch between 12 noon till 4:00 pm. (Taxes and VAT included). Menu is served daily between 11:00 am till 11:00 pm.
Well, if you want to come here for some wine, the small bottle of Agios Elias costs 4 Euros, while the small Keo beer is at 3.50.
I guess this place is inviting any time of day. It is an ideal spot for a friendly gathering but I can recommend it for business meetings as ...

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...)
