The Linos Inn is a tiny village hotel that will please any enthusiast of an authentic rural setting, and especially those who are not too demanding in terms of high tech comfort. The facilities on offer are very limited, and the atmosphere is very quaint. However, the welcome is warm and you'll be treated as a member of the family.

    Location 10.0 /10

    The Linos Inn is located in the ancient village of Kakopteria, which is only accessible by car (you must leave your car at the car park of the "new" village). Then you must follow a small paved and steep road that leads to the hotel. Kakopteria is a village in Troodos, which is the central mountainous part of Cyprus. As the surroundings differ widely from the coast, it involves a complete change of scenery. However, Limassol and its huge beaches are not that far away (approximately 43 mi) and Larnaca's international airport is an hour and a half by car.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    The facilities are simple, and so are the rooms... However, it should be said that the rooms are full of charm; it's like going back to the 40's. Even the tiny (colour) television set seems to date from those days. The 22 accommodation units come as suites or standard rooms. The former have a kitchen area and a very nice poster bed. The latter are slightly smaller and include a phone (probably owned by Alexander G. Bell) - but no line to the reception area, air conditioning, a tea and coffee tray, and a hair dryer. The bathrooms are nice and clean. The balconies offer a view of the mountain. The rooms are not very well lit, but this is actually a good thing.

    Overview 5.70 /10

    The Linos Inn is a small wooden house covered in dark varnish supported by a structure with visible stonework, making for a well-kept and delightful facade with numerous flower arrangements. The reception is tiny but there is a wooden bench on which you can sit to rest your legs after the arduous climb up the hill. The interior of the hotel is very dark, a much appreciated feature in view of the blistering heat and unrelenting sun. Don't bother trying to find the swimming pool or the fitness centre, as this is a simple and unpretentious little establishment. However, there is a TV room, a pool table, and surprisingly, a sauna.

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    If you're looking for authenticity, this is the place to stay... With its slate floor, old advertisements for ouzo, and white and red checked table cloths, the main restaurant is a time-travel machine. It can seat 100 diners. The breakfast is delicious, and includes homemade bread and pastries baked in the village's oven. Snacks are served during the day and guests can enjoy an la carte lunch or dinner. The cuisine is local and international.

    To know

    The entrance is badly indicated, and you run the risk of driving all the way up the hill without finding it, especially as numerous other buildings have the same name. Don't hesitate to ask for directions from the villagers, who are courteous and helpful. If they offer some of their famous pickled oranges, the best is to accept, so as not to offend them. You will have saved on your next meal!
