The Kefalonitis Apartments are friendly, informal and family-run, plus they've got a great location. They're close to the Tombs of the Kings and just a few minutes' drive from Paphos' harbour and old town.
The Kefalonitis Apartments are located close to some of Paphos’ most ancient sights. And the convenience of its location doesn’t stop there. You’re also just across the road from the nearest bars and less than two kilometres from the Old Town and harbour.
Mind you, we’re not suggesting you’ll be in any immediate hurry to leave the Kefalonitis. After all there is, as you’d expect, a swimming pool flanked by sunbeds and parasols. What’s more, there’s a poolside snack bar if you become at all peckish or thirsty. After this, you’ve got two options. Either self indulge a little more in the sauna or whirlpool bath. Or better still, treat yourself to a wonderfully relaxing massage.
Alternatively, up the ante in the gym or take in a few sets on the tennis courts. The choice is yours. Likewise your evenings – why not head out for a good meal and take in some local flavour before retiring to the Kefalonitis with its bar and lounge?
Studio with garden view sleeps up to 3 with twin beds and a sofa-bed. A kitchenette with electric oven with 2 rings, microwave, toaster and kettle, a radio, and bathroom. Maid service is 5 times a week with towel and linen changed twice a week.
1-bedroom apartment with garden view sleeps up to 4. With 1 twin bedroom and 2 sofa-beds in the lounge area, a kitchenette with electric oven with 2 rings, microwave, toaster and kettle, a radio and bathroom. Maid service is 5 times a week with towel and linen changed twice a week.
I took my Mum to this hotel & we had a wonderful holiday. I was a bit apprehensive as Mum usually stays in larger places but this turned out to be ideal. We has a studio room with twin beds as requested. The kitchenette had everything you would need if you wanted to self cater but we only had breakfast in our room & ate out at the many restaurants in the area & town. The room was cleaned most days & we also had clean towels most days which was perfectly adequate for us. Air conditioning was included which I did not expect so a pleasant surprise. The hotel is just off the main road so not noisy at all yet near enough to walk to the bus stop & a great bus service to cove the whole of the Paphos area. Maybe the pavements were a bit overdue a service but this did not detract from a lovely holiday. When I had one small problem with the door not locking it was dealt with straight away. There was no wi-fi in the rooms but you could get wi-fi in the bar & lobby area.
I would recommend this place to stay if you like somewhere smaller & personal.More

October in Paphos
Booked Paphos for the first time this year as we had to holiday later and the weather was perfect.
The apartment had everything we needed and was a good size, the bathroom was nice and clean with a good powerful shower. We hired the safe at 10 euros a week and the air conditioning was free. The pool is ok although we are not pool people and recommend the wonderful beach at Coral Bay a 15 minute bus ride away, the stops are just round the corner from the complex and the buses run often.
It is a nice walk down to the harbour where there are many good restaurants and bars and a lovely place to people watch in the evening. There is a good supermarket in the Kings shopping mall a 10 minute walk away and an amazing 24 hour bakery just across the road.
The tomb of the Kings is a very short walk and well worth the visit as is the visit to the mosaics by the harbour.
The surrounding area is very tired and the pavements very rough and could do with some work but all in all a very good place to stay for location. We walked into town to the market, but were not impressed with the goods on sale, but there are some good bars with nice views to the sea.
We enjoyed our stay at the apartments and have no complaints.
Our advice, get out and explore the side streets, this is where you get away from the BIngo and fish and chips and discover some great authentic restaurants.More

Relaxing Holiday - Lovely Apartments
We booked a late deal with Thomson, staying in a Studio. I fully expected a smallish room with a bed, kitchen ring and bathroom. Therefore, I was very pleased on our arrival at the size of this studio. Huge double bed, fitted kitchen with oven, microwave, hobs, kettle and toaster and all the kitchen equipment you needed to make a meal. Plenty of crockery and cutlery and even supplied with a fresh tea towel, which was changed part way through the week. We had a TV (limited channels), sofa, hairdryer, radio, dressing table and massive fitted wardrobe. The bathroom was lovely and always had plenty of hot water. The studio was absolutely spotless and cleaned every day (except Weds, which is the maids' day off). We had fresh towels every day and the bedding was changed twice. The only downside was that the view wasn't great, but this didn't detract from the holiday.
The apartments are just off the main road and the pavements are a bit dodgy walking to the entrance. The area could just do with a bit of a spruce up.
The breakfast was nice when we had it one day, but most of the time I cooked. The bar prices were reasonable and the wi-fi very good around the lovely pool area and reception. I had a slight issue that the reception wasn't always manned, but it wasn't particularly busy when we were there so that's understandable I suppose.
The buses are great on the main road. One euro 50 wherever you go (or 5 euros for the day). Coral Bay is great for beach lovers - nice and quiet away from the crowds if you stay on the bus to the terminus. The harbour is gorgeous, we went there several times. Not overpriced and plently of places to eat. We also ate near the hotel - pleanty of bars/restaurants. My favourite was the greek one next to Fat Mamas and also Tea for Two if you wanted a massive meal at a cheaper price (although the pies are microwaved and not particularly nice - everything else was lovely).
We booked a coach trip to see the island, which was very enjoyable, but you could do it yourself on the buses.
Lots of historical sites to visit within walking distance of the hotel, including Kings of the Tombs - most sites are free. There's also a big Lidl so you can stock up.
Overall a great stay in Paphos. However, be mindful that Cyprus is a little more expensive than Greece/Turkey so we needed additional spending money!More
lovely quiet place
These apartments are in a quiet area but plenty of places to eat nearby and also the bus route to either Coral Bay or into the centre of Paphos harbour. Clean and spacious with lovely pool and terrace. Good for couples or families. The only problem is security at the reception - not manned all the time and you can help yourself to any key !!!More
Nice clean budget hotel
Apartment was very clean, hotel nice enough, but bar area could do with a revamp, didn't want to spend time in there very shabby and dated. Didn't find owner or staff friendly or helpful. The road across from hotel like baron wasteland not a pretty sight and footpaths are horrendous pieces of metal sticking out and no street lights how I didn't do myself an injury I was surprised. This part of paphos is a dump much nicer down by the harbour. Best place to eat is Greek restaurant straight across the road zuss fantastic fresh food to die for ð Cyprus fantastic for winter sun but the beaches in this area not so good More
