Hilton Cyprus Nicosia is like a peaceful oasis in the city. The moment you walk in the property, you will feel at home and relax in the luxurious surroundings. Favourite of mine, this hotel was the choice I made on this last stay when visiting the City of Nicosia. Combining a business trip with leisure I could not think of any other in Nicosia that could compete with what the Cyprus Hilton offers. Travellers and mostly repeaters, know well that they can expect expert service, eclectic cuisine, and topnotch hospitality.
Hilton Cyprus Nicosia Location
The Hilton Cyprus Hotel is located in one of the most upmarket leafy avenues of Nicosia in close proximity of the city’s landmarks and the International Conference Center. It takes less than a 15-minute leisurely walk to get down to the city centre to Ledra’s Str.
The Hilton Cyprus Hotel retains its classic elegance and character through the years. The reception area is discreet and welcoming. The Paddock bar evokes a relaxing ambience. You will be dazzled with the ostentatious lifts of the executive wing, as well as the outstanding boutiques on the ground floor promenade. Arriving in the lobby, you will be impressed with the marble floor designs the paintings and its atmosphere.

Checking-in at the Hilton Cyprus
Above all, it is probably the quality of the staff in all areas that help bring people back time after time. The warmth of the welcome from the ever-helpful staff at the reception, the housekeeping but also members of the management provides a taste of what is to come and indicates the level of friendliness and professional service you will experience throughout your stay. My check-in was smooth like always, and I remained downstairs for a while to see friends before I get to the suite and find my luggage already there.
What is Accommodation like?
All 294 rooms at the Hilton Cyprus Hotel are spacious and tastefully decorated. The clever use of texture in the warm autumnal colours covering the wall to ceiling windows creates a great atmosphere. Whether you are interested in a standard room or a deluxe suite, the Hilton Cyprus will make your stay luxurious and pleasurable. All rooms contain a convenient workspace, high-speed internet, flat-screen TVs and super King-size beds –unless you request twins. The Hilton Cyprus is guaranteeing a big selection of choice depending on the nature of your visit, and the length of your stay.
The Corner King Junior Suite 569
My corner suite was more like a luxurious apartment (67m²/721sq.ft) with a separate living room and a bedroom furnished to the highest standards of the Hilton quality and style. The two balconies had a side view of the beautiful garden and the pool, and the other one, the city.
Convenience here at the Cyprus Hilton, blends with comfort and pleasure, while reality mingles with fantasy, to create the unique atmosphere and the perfect balance between luxury and homely familiarity.
The View from the Suite
How was the bedroom like?
Designed for a relaxing and soothing atmosphere the bedroom gave a comforting feel to space. Despite the hotel’s location, I couldn’t hear a sound outside.

This tranquillity and my extra comfortable super king-sized bed meant that I slept like a log. The luxury bed linens of the Hilton Cyprus Hotel, the pillows, and duvet cover created a luxurious feel. It made it hard for me to leave the bed each morning.
Little Touches at the Hilton Cyprus
There was a very welcome bottle of red wine, a nice assortment of local dainty morsel and a platter of seasonal fruit in the suite upon my arrival, but I had several unexpected treats daily.

The bathroom, spacious and well lit had everything I needed for with nothing missing. I can’t miss mentioning the quality of the towels here at the Hilton Cyprus Hotel. Their plush and fluffiness, held up better than that of any of the other towels in hotels I had this summer. Crispy and bright, smelled freshness!
The Hiltonia Club and Spa
I did not feel leaving the hotel even for a minute, not because of the August heat wave, but there was no reason to do it since I had everything I needed here and more! I wouldn’t say the Hiltonia Spa is luxurious with an arsenal of comforts and conveniences like you’d expect of high-end spa hotels, but the amenities, service and the treatments are noted.
I spent endless hours daily in the indoor pool of the Hiltonia Club & Spa. The powerful jets of the Jacuzzi made me feel greatly carefree out there. I used the Steam Bath several times, but skipped the sauna, in an attempt to hydrate my body, since the previous two weeks I spent countless hours by the beach under the sun, swimming. What a lovely way to pamper oneself!
My Facial Treatment
Arranging my appointment at the Hiltonia Spa was very simple. I dropped by to book the treatment session the second day of my arrival being aware that August is not the peak season for the Hilton Cyprus Hotel. The hotel’s Spa menu of beauty treatments included relaxation Massages, Facial & Body treatments, Manicure-Pedicure and Men’s and Ladies waxing. Having my body pampered out here all these days, it was not hard to decide, so I found myself giving into the Anti-aging Facial which Elena my therapist executed perfectly. She arranged that I am in a comfortable position on the spa-bed before proceeding. She started off with the exfoliation and cleansing of my face, neck and décolleté area.
Elena carefully applied the liquid face mask (the Academie brand) by brush and left the room for 20 minutes, while I remained listening to soothing music. The specific mask helped the penetration of actives by promoting intense skin hydration by leaving the face glowing, firmed and invigorated.
The outdoor pool and Jacuzzi out in the garden is splendid and adds to the peaceful scene. There is also a stylish indoor pool to enjoy along with a Sauna, Jacuzzi and Fitness Centre.
Visiting the Hilton Cyprus Hair Saloon
I stepped into Zac Hair Designers Beauty Saloon located opposite the lifts of the executive wing. The people behind are qualified professionals and will do their best to deliver a complete hair and beauty experience from a hair-cut, styling to waxing and more. The last day before their summer holidays and exceptionally for me, doing me a big favour, I managed to get a trim, without a coiffure hairdo, but I was already very appreciative.
Fast and beautiful, Petro showed that he is a professional. Whether you need a trim, a colour refresh or a dramatic makeover, a visit here will leave you feeling marvellous and turning heads!
Hilton Cyprus Nicosia
You don’t have to look too far for a great meal when here, only because the Cyprus Hilton restaurants offer some of the finest dining choices in the city. The Fontana Restaurant serves food throughout the day if you are interested in some delectable Mediterranean dishes for lunch and dinner, along with a rich selection of wines.
Breakfast at the Fontana (All-day-dining)
My suite had access to two different breakfast locations, -the Executive Lounge and the Fontana. I had mine at the Fontana as always because I can make use of the a la carte menu and have the omelette of my choice.
Classy and chic with a pleasant and cosy atmosphere, the buffet here has it all. Guests have the choice of a wide selection of hot & cold buffet which includes bacon, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, sausages, cheese, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes and more. A variety of bread, jam spreads and preserves are also available. Beverages include tea, coffee and fruit juice. Healthy options are also plentiful, with salad, tomatoes, peppers and a range of fresh juices. Guests may also choose a dish from the hot menu. I would have a delicious omelette!
Throughout the Hilton Cyprus, teamwork means a lot and the team has a personal way of approaching their guests. Cooks and Chefs are on hand early in the morning, going around welcoming repeaters and guests and checking if everything is under control.
The Executive Lounge
Residents of the executive rooms and suites can benefit from this specially designed area, the Hilton Cyprus Executive Lounge, where they can enjoy complimentary breakfast, tea, coffee, cakes, canapés, but also alcoholic drinks & cocktails and a selection of seasonal fruits. Newspapers and Internet access are also available.
The team and staff throughout the Hilton Cyprus are courteous and efficient and work under the assumption that there is no matter too small to attend to if it will make your stay just that much better. You will arrive immediately feeling like family and you will leave feeling like nothing short of royalty.

The Pergola Grill & Bar at the Hilton Cyprus Nicosia
A stay at the Hilton Cyprus isn’t complete without visiting the Pergola Grill and Bar Restaurant.
The Pergola Grill & Bar is opposite the swimming pool. I was there on the “Friday Night Swimming” event and I urge you, not to miss it. Hurry, before summer is over! On this particular night besides the guests of the hotel, locals are welcome to participate and chill out around the pool till quite late. Just give them a call and leave the rest on them.
The food is so good that I’d recommend having dinner at least one night during your stay, not to mention that it is open to non-residents as well, but they should book in advance. I particularly like the friendly service of the team. The sommelier knows well his stuff and will suggest suitable wines to accompany your meal if you wish. I was with a friend and our choice was from the a la carte menu. Be sure to check my Pergola & Grill Restaurant dining experience!
The Hilton Cyprus Nicosia is a great all-rounder hotel ideal for business trips, a relaxing getaway, corporate tours, events and conference meetings. Everyone who works there is so genuinely lovely, kind and considerate –it made my stay an absolute pleasure! As I always say, astounding customer service is what separates a good hotel from an exceptional one. You cannot go past the Hilton Cyprus Hotel if looking for the best accommodation.
