"Alexander the Great getting old" Alexander The Great Tip by johnka

Alexander The Great, Paphos: 1,911 reviews and 5 photos

We stayed two days in Alexander the Great at the end of our paphos holiday. We had heard great things about the hotel and the food.

We were there in early April - really before the main tourist season.

The hotel is rather old-fashioned and shows some signs of needing a major rebuild. Bedrooms are quite small - think of a Travelodge - balconies are miniscule.

The food is certainly not 4 star and is more like a package holiday tourist hotel.

We like coffee in the evening and in the morning before breakfast. No facilities are provided in the room but the hotel booklet indicates this is available via Reception. I phoned down and was told I needed to appear in person. I did so and despite the charge of 6 Euro per day could not be made avalialble until the following day. Then it was revelaed the minimum number of days was 3. No luck then. mM comment about this being ludicrous was met by a shrug.
Breakfast was fine by buffet standards.

Drinks were expensive.

Service was first class with a good share of eastern Europeans replacing native Cypriots.

In all disappointing stay in a 4 star hotel with 5 star prices and 3 star facilities.
