Nostalgia Hotel Kyrenia North Cyprus

This is a hotel review for Nostalgia Hotel in Kyrenia, North Cyprus

“Think twice about the Nostalgia Hotel”

I booked in to the Nostalgia hotel through a travel agency for this trip but I wished I'd done a bit more research on this hotel before allowing them to book me into it. I was very disappointed in the room I was put in, so much so that I asked to be changed to a different room, only to find it was no better than the first room. Even though the housecleaning was top-notch and everything was spotless, still the rooms themselves need some refurbishing. Both rooms I was in are in the older section, and I've heard the newer section of the hotel is nicer, but the older section still needs some work done. The rooms are very small and the bathrooms are miniscule. The showers are so small that it's difficult to fit a whole person inside one and a larger person would have some difficulty. The furniture is old and the legs were wobbly on all the chairs in the room. I had to find something to place underneath one of the legs in order to keep it steady. The beds are hard and uncomfortable and also are obviously very old. This place really needs to spend a little cash updating the furniture and redoing the rooms in the older part, especially the bathrooms.

On the plus side, the food in the Nostalgia dining room is superb. I was very impressed with the delicious dinners. And as I mentioned already, the housecleaning was great. The staff made sure my room was thoroughly cleaned everyday. However, I can't say the same for the pool area. Although the area around the pool was nice and the water seemed clean, the cushions for the lounge chairs really smelled bad and it was not pleasant to lie on them. Also the wooden loungers had some uneven legs and missing slats from time to time.

This hotel seems to be really rundown compared to others I've stayed in through Northern Cyprus . They just need to invest some time and money into updating it a bit more. The only thing that keeps this hotel from being a total waste of money to stay here is the wonderful food. Otherwise it's really not worth it.

Liked — Spotlessly clean
Disliked — small tired rooms in the older section
