I booked a week at the Life Hotel for my wife and I with gonorthcyprus and we had a great time at a great price. The hotel looks modern and everything is finished to a good standard. It's not particularly luxurious but you can't really expect it for the price. It's a good little place and the staff are friendly and helpful. Decent buffet breakfast in the morning that set us up for the day ahead, you can walk to the marina in about ten minutes but it's nice to be out of the way in the evenings and... more

If you're travelling on a budget then the Life Hotel is ideal. It's a mid-range place just outside the centre of Girne, you can walk to the harbour area in around ten minutes but with the benefit of avoiding the higher prices of staying in the centre. I had a comfortable room which was airy and modern, the bed was comfortable and the Wi-Fi was decent. The hotel is clean and though not everyone has very good English, the staff are polite and friendly. There are bars and restaurants to be found in... more

If you're looking for a basic bolthole from which to explore Kyrenia then the Life Hotel is a good choice. It's a no-frills setup but clean and well run, and in a very good location if you want to get around and see the sights. We got a good price with A plus point is the food - we weren't expecting much but actually the meals were a wonderful taste of traditional Turkish and Cypriot cuisine, very fresh and delicious. You're very close to the centre of Kyrenia here so it's easy... more

If it's location you're after and you're not fussed about frills, Life Hotel is a good choice. It's very basic but cheap and we got a great deal from GoNorthCyprus including transfers. My son and I travelled in August and despite the time of year we were impressed with the prices, too good to pass up. Staff are friendly, some don't have great English skills but they show willing and are welcoming and helpful. We had a clean and tidy room that could have done with a bit of a refresh but you can't... more

We were looking for a decent, budget-friendly hotel from which to explore and the Life Hotel has received rave reviews on the gonorthcyprus site, so we decided to book in. We were very pleased that the price included transfers, which meant one less thing to worry about. When we arrived we found the staff very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is budget friendly so don't expect any luxuries but it is clean and reasonably comfortable. We were high up in the hotel so we had a good view of the mountains,... more

We were looking at North Cyprus for a budget-friendly break and decided to book at the Life Hotel with GoNorthCyprus, who are known as experts in the area. We were expecting a fairly basic place in a good location and were relieved to find that our expectations were correct - pleasant hotel, quite basic but perfectly adequate and a very good spot right in the centre of Kyrenia. The food at the restaurant was great - traditional Turkish and Cypriot meals, we loved the grilled kebabs. It's great to... more

I recently travelled to Kyrenia with my husband after booking a few days away through We decided on the Life Hotel as it looked pleasant enough on the website and the prices were very good. When we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome by the staff, which was lovely! We were also surprised to see that the hotel has undergone a bit of a makeover - everything looks much newer and more modern than the original images we had seen. The hotel is clean and quiet, our room was spacious... more

My wife and I were looking for a central hotel for a city break in Kyrenia and Gary at found us a great price for a five-day getaway at the Life Hotel. The positioning is ideal, just ten minutes' walk from the marina and set right in the centre of Kyrenia close to all amenities. The hotel has recently been refurbished so looks much more modern than in the pictures we initially saw, and we enjoyed the meals we ate at the hotel's restaurant, which were very nice. Our room was spotlessly... more

I've been coming to the High Life hotel for 14 years now and love it more every time I come. The hotel disappeared from my usual site a couple of years ago and I now use Go North Cyprus. I recommend them whole heartedly and the friendly voice at the end of the free phone is invaluable. Living the 'High Life' is what holidays are all about, and I was so looking forward to that first coffee on the sunny terrace. Imagine my surprise when I got there to discover the hotel had undergone a complete makeover!... more

I like to think that after more than a decade of holidays in Kyrenia, I must be one of the foremost authorities on the hotels (and admittedly, bars) there by now. I've never really been one for using the internet but after enjoying my all-time best stay in the region last October it seems only right that I give credit where credit is due. Starting, surprisingly, with Sue at Go North Cyprus who handled my booking for me and was very thorough.We chose the Life Hotel purely on the basis that I knew... more

I'd read mixed reviews about the Life Hotel but the holidays they offered seemed to suit my family perfectly. I sought advice through Go North Cyprus hotels and Mandy assured me that the Life Hotel was a great hotel which has been refurbished quiet recently so a lot of what I'd read related to the hotel in the past. When we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted in such a friendly manner by the staff. We've stayed in places before and you just feel like you're the next guest on the conveyor belt;... more

We were a family at the hotel for two weeks in late March - early April. The hotel is quiet, clean. Staff is very friendly. Hotel location is very good for traveling and walking - right in the center of Kyrenia. We are not embarrassed not varied breakfast. At the slightest inconvenience in the room we were given another room. I advise you to use the hotel for both business travel and leisure............................................................................................................. more

Thanks to a delayed flight we arrived at the Life hotel in Northern Cyprus much later than planned, and in the dark were quite confused by the layout. The hotel is a bit back to front, so what initially appears to be the front is in fact the back; a detail which caused us some confusion when trying to get in.When we finally made our way to the reception we were very pleasantly surprised. It was nicely decorated (which is unusual, in our experience, for hotels in this region) and the welcome we received... more

Having visited Northern Cyprus previously and not getting the right choice of hotel we decided that this time we'd use a holiday booking company. We went with and the booking agent couldnt have been more helpful. Sue offered us a range of hotels that matched the requirements we gave her and the Life Hotel was the final choice. The first thing we'd like to report is this: the Life is situated perfectly for anyone looking to sample proper local cuisine (i.e. us). Food is one of the... more

Life Hotel is found in a popular and pretty busy district on one of the main streets on the way into Girne. It's in a really good area if you're looking to do a bit of shopping and eating out. It took us approximately 5 to 10 minutes to walk the route into the area where most of the shops and restaurants are found, so not bad at all. There are also a lot of cafes to choose from which are very close to the hotel itself. The Life Hotel is a relatively modern hotel with all the mod cons and everything... more

When my 2 friends and I booked a last minute holiday to North Cyprus, we wanted to make sure that we stayed in the heart of a town. We didn't want the hassle of travelling anywhere and wanted to be close to the shops, bars and restaurants. This is why the Life Hotel, Kyrenia, suited us perfectly. We managed to get ourselves a family room so that we could all stay together. It was a really decent size with good facilities, including Internet access. The only thing we weren't too impressed with was... more

I originally booked a stay at another hotel in the area, but upon arrival was not at all impressed, so left after one night and booked the remainder of my stay at Life Hotel. I should have booked here in the first place. The difference between this hotel and the last is like night and day. Life Hotel is a great place to stay and I have only positive things to say about this hotel.First of all, the rooms are clean, modern, large, and have comfortable beds. The rooms are cleaned daily and the... more

Stayed at the Life for two nights when visiting friends in Kyrenia. Smart hotel lobby, with bold paintings in the bar areas. Bedrooms furnished in business hotel style so clean but with no frills. Small balcony. Shower not bath, as in most TRNC hotels. The two restaurant menus looked ok, but ate elsewhere as friends knew all the best local restaurants. Breakfast acceptable and view from terrace restaurant of local mountain a surprise. Hotel staff nice but some struggle with English. Fine for a break... more
