Whether you’re a solo adventurer, business traveller, or love birds who adore cosy stays, there are some great places to put your feet up across Cyprus while you take in the city buzz. Here’s the My Cyprus Insider lowdown on some of our favourite urban boutique hotels!
1. 3 Rooms Boutique Hotel, Stoa Klokkari, Nicosia
If you’re one of the many people who has enjoyed a walk down the hip and happening Onasagorou Street in Old Nicosia, then you’ll be well aware that trendy eateries are sandwiched between coffee shops galore, with a few shops and bars also in the mix. But what you may not be aware of is that the brand new 3 Rooms Boutique Hotel (formally The Sandstone) is tucked away in the trendy ‘Stoa Klokkari’, and it’s about as cute and tiny as a boutique hotel can be.
All three high ceiling rooms are chic with a vintage flair, while guests have access to a common area with a large communal dinner table. This well-lit area can also be used for studying and/or work, while if you head out onto the upstairs balcony, you can enjoy a peek at all the action in the arcade below. And when you fancy exploring? You’re right where you need to be, with Nicosia’s maze of old city streets begging to be discovered.
