It’s cool, it’s hip and it’s happening: Limassol really is one of the most inspiring cities on the island! And there’s no lack of places to sleep in ultimate style if you’d like to take a break in the coastal cosmopolitan hub. My Cyprus Insider has done the legwork for you…just follow our lead!
1. Old Port Hotel
Just steps away from Limassol’s old port and the historic Medieval Castle, this gem-of-a-place is the perfect blend of old meets new. Aptly named the Old Port Hotel, it’s set in one of the liveliest quarters of the city and comprises over 20 modern and comfy rooms, where neutral tones and wood combine in perfect fashion. Vibrant blue and fabulous lighting also adds a touch of warmth throughout the hotel, with sleek marble touches accentuating the elegant vibe. Feeling hungry? A bistro-restaurant within the hotel grounds satiates the palate, open for brunch, lunch and dinner. Stay tuned for more updates on the hotel’s Facebook page.
2. Sir Paul Hotel
A place that has left us grinning from ear to ear, Sir Paul Hotel is a family-owned luxury city hotel, perfectly mixing opulence and convenience in the heart of Limassol’s historic centre. The gorgeous listed building dates back to the 18th century – once functioning as the city’s town hall – and has been lovingly restored, to welcome guests into the hip and stylish hideaway that it is today.
Two floors are spread out across a central sunny courtyard, which borders the sophisticated hotel bar, restaurant and dining room, while the 22 meticulously decorated guest rooms offer a bespoke experience of comfort and luxury aesthetics, defined by elegance and attention to detail. Simply put, contemporary chic meets tradition in a brilliant fashion, and we absolutely love the solid cypress floors and local stone, all accentuated with very much on-trend marble and bronze details.
3. La Maltese Mansion
Another gorgeous refurbished spot, La Maltese Mansion is a newly revamped neoclassical building of the 1800’s, transformed into modern, fully functional accommodation with a vintage aesthetic. If you love stepping into a spacious room, this is the place to be: nine suites feature high ceilings and plenty of room for your shopping bags if you’re planning a little splurge in the city!
Just a stone’s throw from the sea and a fifteen-minute walk from the Limassol Marina and castle area, you can either opt for a room with views out across the endless blue, or of the old town. Luxurious yet simple, and oozing a romantic appeal, La Maltese Mansion is the perfect spot to relax in the buzzing city.
