Amy Adejokun Section editor

Although it is located in the heart of the city and close to many shops, the Kapetanios is quite a peaceful, reasonably-sized hotel, where tourists are greeted in a warm manner. Nevertheless, the fact that it probably hasn't been renovated for a very long time, that the pool is right beside the road, and that the beach is over 200 metres away on foot may put off some people seeking absolute comfort and high-tech amenities.

    Location 4.39 /10

    If you are not a fan of suntanning on the beach, you will find the location of the hotel in the heart of Limassol very convenient - a few metres away from the Archaeological Museum, the large Public Garden - where a stroll at dusk is very pleasant, and the zoo. Restaurants and boutiques, including some renowned luxury brands, can be found all around the hotel. The walking distance to the Old Town is just over half a mile. Larnaca airport is 45 mi away, a little over 45 minutes by car.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    The 75 guest rooms at the Kapetanios are divided into 3 categories: standard, executive and superior. They can each accommodate up to 3 people. Some have a view of the sea (provided that you crane forward to catch a glimpse of it beyond the seafront hotels), while the others have a view of the streets and the car park. Each room is equipped with a small balcony, satellite television, a direct international telephone line, a mini bar, a hair dryer and individual air conditioning: the strict minimum.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Already from its exterior, you can see that the Kapetanios doesn't offer many surprises, it presents itself as it really is: a small and unpretentious 3 star city hotel (local standards) built in the 1980's that hasn't changed much since it was built. The lobby is a little outdated, although fairly pleasant, clean, and rather bright. It is host to a television room and a bar, as well as a large and beautiful bas-relief representing Athena, the goddess of war and wisdom, projecting over the room. There is another bar next to the rather spacious pool, which, even though it is concealed behind a hedge, does lie alongside a small street. There is very little traffic in the area, but it still isn't very nice to swim among exhaust fumes and the smells of litter. The fitness centre is located in the hotel basement and includes an indoor pool accessible for free, a gym, a sauna, and treatment rooms dedicated to massages. On the ground floor, the conference room can accommodate about 50 guests.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Breakfast and dinner are served in the only restaurant room, called the Captain's. Local and international food is served as a buffet and theme nights are organised 3 times a week: Italian nights on Mondays, with a guitarist playing live music; on Wednesdays, a typical Cypriot night, with bouzouki music and folks dances; and international nights are on Friday. Starters consist mainly of salads, and a choice among two or three hot dishes is available at every meal. A full English breakfast (eggs, sausages, beans and cheese) is served but you won't find any pastries, and the fruit often comes from a tin.

      One of the favourite haunts of the golden youth of Cyprus, as well as Brits and Russians, the Londa is a model of class, elegance and trendiness. The self-proclaimed "first boutique hotel in Cyprus", it and boasts a very specific understanding of luxury, as seen in the carefully thought out design of the lobby and spa centre. The service is attentive and perfect. The establishment offers a perfect retreat for party goers and young couples. However, it isn't very well suited for families, despite the beautiful surroundings.
