Kings hotel Paphos Cyprus
"This hotel is 2 star family
run whare you are made to feel like one of the family, you are a purson not a room number. the management and staff will do whatever they can to make your holiday trouble free, the rooms are basic but clean,linen and towels are changed 3 times a week the pool area is cleaned every day
The hotel is very centeral for harbour .or the old town buses stop close to the hotel
The food menu for the week is on the notice board along with all local information
In general the hotel is ready to be updated but my wife and I have always enjoyed
the freindship of every one at this hotel
We will go again Doreen & Bob"

Helpful staff friendly atmosphere good value
"This two star hotel was clean and well managed. The staff were very obliging and helpful, going out of their way to assist me. Yes it was noisy due to the traffic but a request for a room at the rear of the hotel was met within an hour with the minimum of fuss. I felt at home, much more than I have been in 5 star concrete "palaces" The pool area was pleasant and peaceful although a new night club conversion in the next street may change that sometime in the future For now it is well worth a visit and good value for money."

Great value for money
"My boyfriend and I are currently working in Cyprus for 5 weeks and thought we would get away as we had 2 days off. Money is tight so we looked for bargain hotels on the net and found Kings.
Our balcony overlooked the 'Brit Strip' (with lots of restaurants and bars) yet wasn't noisy. The room was a good size and was light and airey although we did need air con which we had to pay a fiver a night for.
The pool area, modelled on the theme of ancient greece, was lovely with plenty of shady areas if you wanted to get away from that intense sun.
Breakfast was very pleasant too and staff were friendly and helpful.
The hotel is in a good location near the attractions of the Tombs, harbour and beaches with a good bus service if you don't fancy walking.
A really pleasant stay . Cheers"

Would NEVER go back again!!!!!!
"I have never in my life stayed at a place that was so filthy. We arrived and the heating system was not working so the maintenance man came up to check and it was a fuse that had blown. He then gave us half a dozen fuses and told us to keep changing them when they blew!! The food was a DISGRACE! The patio doors did not lock properly and when they did there was an inch gap at either side. There was insufficent food for everyone so it was a case of if you're not fast, you're last! We were upgraded from self-catering to B & B so that breakfast was included only to be told that the COOKED breakfast was not available in the winter so there was a continental b/fast which was sparse to say the least ! The evening meal was like Joe's Cafe......if you were not quick, deserts etc were finished and they did not replace them. I was covered in bed bug bites and spider bites so badly that we cut our week long holiday short to 3 days as opposed to a week stay. The reception staff were so rude and unhelpful, but if it wasnt for Jenny ( a temp!) we would probably have frozen to death on our 2nd night. The few days we were there, the maid did not dust, polish OR hoover so there was dust and fluff about an inch thick under the beds. I dont know when they were last checked !!! We could not contact a rep as he was unavailable and his fone was out of service and their office in Cyprus was closed till the 6th January 2009. We were not allowed to use our own travel equipment, ie kettle, iron, hairdryer etc as the management would confiscate these if found in your room but these could be hired (at a cost) from the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone unless the Health & Hygiene came in and overhauled the place !!!!!"

Basic but family orientated
"We spent 2 weeks in this hotel and couldn't fault anything. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Geoff was brilliant with the children and friendly. Breakfast was basic but the evening meal soon made up for it. It wasn't any trouble to order something else if you didn't like what was on the menu as long as you notified them before 12 noon. Pool was clean and very inviting. It was very close to the bus stops leading to the harbour and coral bay. We would definately return to this hotel in the future."

Kings Hotel Paphos is extremely clean an...
"Kings Hotel Paphos is extremely clean and very well run with excellent hard working staff, especially Geoff and Jenny. Rooms had everything you needed and were cleaned every day, faultless.
Unfortunately it is not mentioned that smoking is allowed in all bedrooms and that the hotel is situated on a horrendously noisy road. The first room we were allocated 410 in our opinion should never be offered to guests due to its location. Fortunately, we were able to change after two days otherwise we would have left the hotel.
It is not the hotels policy to give you a meal on your departure date despite the fact we booked in for seven evening meals and had only received six. We felt particularly cheated and were not very diplomatically dealt with.
On a positive note the area around the pool is delightful and like the inside impeccably clean. A good hotel if you are a smoker and can sleep through constant traffic noise.
We would not go again or recommend it.

Group Bookings Beware
"Please beware if you are booking via firstdirect while the website says the hotel has air-conditioning and we assumed this was in the package you actually have to pay Â£2.50 Cyprus per day for the airconditioning to work. The room we got also had rat droppings in the cupboards even though a cleaner came through daily."

Friendly and well located hotel

Review: Trip Advisor Member, Wokingham, Berkshire
A clean, comfortable and friendly hotel. All standard facilities provided for and in a good location for the beach, town, harbour and Tombs of the Kings.
Buffet breakfast and choice of delicious home cooked three course evening meal served in a comfortable, homely environment. Small lounge with television and bar and outdoor swimming pool.
Helpful and friendly staff and night porter service, who would ensure there was breakfast should this be needed for an early morning start to leave for the airport.
As hotel is on a busy main road on a junction, traffic noise was a disturbance but otherwise an economical holiday."
