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.

The buildings which have been restored, date back to the end of the 18th century and are typical examples of traditional Cypriot urban architecture.

... so tempting and I had a bite. It was a marvel -a dish to be considered.
Cypriot wines are of excellent quality and we had the Aes Ampelis Rose (a Shiraz and Maratheftiko grape variety) served at €34.75 (per bottle) €9.00 (per glass).
Another exceptional wine from the indigenous Xynisteri grape is ‘Petritis’ probably the most interesting dry wine that Cyprus has to offer at the moment, the unique wine to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Sempati Lapta
Excellent no complaints whatsoever.
The hotel was clean and the staff could not do enough for us to make our stay really smashing. They were not intrusive into our privacy and yet gave us superb service. The laundry service was unbelievable - same day turn around and the rooms were cleaned to a high standard. Erkan and his staff should be very proud of their hotal, lovely.
A courtesy bus was laid on to and from the airport, and car hire was easily arranged.
A friendly, family run hotel in North Cyprus
Having just returned from a holiday in North Cyprus at the Hotel Sempati, I find it difficult to believe the problems that one of the reviews show. The family and staff at the hotel do all they can to make your holiday comfortable, enjoyable and relaxing. Will certainly return again.
Wonderful hospitality, the fact it is family run makes it oh so better. Food has improved this year as opposed to other years, and the service has not slipped. Lovely atmosphere, brilliant weather - what more can one say?
I was full of high expectations having read the reviews but now wonder whether Erkan wrote them himself!!
Great Value for Money
This was the second time I had visited Northern Cyprus with my wife and son. I made my booking directly with Erkan at the hotel and he arranged our flights for us as well. I can not fault the level of service and hospitality we received from the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we left. The Hotel has an excellent restaurant and pool. The rooms are clean and well kept. we made many new friends here and would certainly come back. Speaking to other guests it was surprising to see that many had returned to this hotel year after year.
Great location for visiting other areas of Northern Cyprus and ther are also many restaurants within easy walking distance. Car hire rates from the hotel are also very favourable with good quality vehicles.
Recommended this hotel and were not disappointed. Erkan and all his staff could not have been friendlier, nothing too much trouble. Lovely pool area, all rooms face onto pool.Would highly recommend it.
Excellent Service, most friendliest staff
Excellent Service, Friendliest Atmosphere, We recommend for everyone,
Not just a hotel
I have just returned from my 4th visit to Hotel Sempati and have to say that once again we have been made to feel extremely welcome.
The accommodation is clean and comfortable, food plentiful and all the staff are most helpful and friendly. Not only that but Erkan and his family make you feel as though you are part of their family.
The hotel has a very nice swimming pool area and is located just a short walk from the sea and there are several restaurants within walking distance. It is in a quiet area away from Girne yet ideally situated for exploring the TRNC. There are some marvellous walks and car journeys where you can enjoy spectacular views from up in the hills and forests.
We go there time and time again!
This is a cracking hotel and I am surprised that there are so few reviews if it on the net. To say too much would be to spoil the magic that is Northern Cyprus. Save to say that this hotel is perfectly placed for an enjoyable stay on the island. There is no doubt that it is 'budget' priced, but the standard of the rooms and facilities are excellent value for money, moreover, the attentive service and helpful advice is priceless. My wife and I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions and at different times of the year. I have also confidently recommended Hotel Sempati to friends, all of whom appear to share our enthusiasm.
