The room had no bar, no fan (yes ! it's needed during mid-day), we could not get wifi (the router was probably too far away), two times around midnight pipes or something started to make sound and woke us up, no telephone, the tv was either not programmed...

As always, good to be back for my summer visit to the Troodos mountains, and especially so to one of my favourite retreats, the New Helvetia in Platres. On this occasion, I was combining my 2-night stay with an attendance at ‘The 11th Cyprus Rialto World Music Festival‘ 2-day performances. My accommodation in a Maisonette Suite was great, and the...

The hotel is located in the pine forest above Platres . The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was very good with a good variety of options on the menu. The down side was the shower in the bedroom was almost impossible to use and the fact that used towels were refolded and placed on the bed did not...

The position is ideal from which to explore the mountainous Troodos region. The New Helvetia is a comfortable family-run hotel. We were extremely well looked after and enjoyed occupying our accommodation with its two floors. The hotel is sited above a steep sided, forested valley, the views of which can be enjoyed while taking a hearty breakfast on the hotel...

This is a hotel with a high potential:good location,nice atmosphere,great history.However, the staff are quite unprofessional. The room are small especially the bathroom.i was not impress by the cleaness.the hotel need a total refurbishment.Definetely does not worth the 75 euro per night - probably 50 euro would have been fine.

If you are looking for a modern, soulless hotel, with all the mod cons then don't come here! If you would like to stay in a hotel with a lot of history, very friendly and welcoming staff, and somewhere with character and lovely views, this is the place for you.

Though the hotel is old, it has its authenticity and charm with beautifully arranged living room that makes one feel like home with soft couches, large chess board and a fireplace. It was a bit cold in the room as my stay fell in February, however, I cannot complain about the staff. The dinner was always very delicious and abundant,...
