The centre-of-town Hotel Kissos is just a short walk from the beach, so if 'convenience' is your watchword, it couldn't be better.
The Hotel Kissos is right in the heart of Paphos. There’s a wide sand-and-shingle beach just a five-minute walk away, and a great mix of shops, bars and restaurants closer still.
White walls, tiled floors and fuss-free wooden furniture give the Hotel Kissos a Mediterranean feel. Outside, meanwhile, the pool scene and restaurant steal the spotlight.

2 outdoor pools
It's difficult to choose between the two outdoor pools. The first is in a great spot and the terrace is a great suntrap, while the other winds its way through the hotel grounds and stays pretty peaceful.
Semeli international buffet restaurant*
You can begin your day with a buffet breakfast at Semeli. Lunch is à la carte menu or buffet and dinner offers a delicious buffet spread. You'll have the chance to try something different at one of the four of the themed evenings every week. Greek themed nights usually take place from 7pm and include barbecue foods and salads. There's also a children's menu, so the whole family has plenty of choice at mealtimes.
The Pool bar offers snacks from 10am to 9.30pm, with happy hour from 6pm to 7pm in the summer.

My husband and I stay for 7 nights half board at the end of July. Our first impressions were good. The reception was lovely. We were on the second floor and our room was ok. Air conditioning was excellent. The pool area was nice but it was difficult to get a sunbed as they were reserved early morning with no-one using them for most of the day. Breakfast was nice with a good selection. However, the evening meal was terrible. Ate out after the second night. It taste disgusting and looked awful. We arrived about 11pm and was told that because we missed the evening meal we could have it on our last evening. At the time we didn't know we were being picked up before the restaurant opened on our last evening. So we paid for 7 nights but in actual fact only 6 were available. Which I'm really not fussed about as the food was awful, but had we wanted to then out of principal this is wrong. Tina who works on reception is very cheery and friendly. The guy in the shop is very pleasant. All in all it wasn't too bad apart from the food but we wouldn't return to this hotel. More
Reception staff and location are the leading lights!
This is an old hotel and one or two areas do show their age, but if you are looking for a good value hotel with a fantastically helpful reception and a good location then this one fares well. Tina, and her staff on reception do everything they can to help with any queries and issues you may have and really do help to push this hotel in the right direction. The food in the restaurant is - contrary to other reviews - perfectly adequate. Everything is hot - including the plates(!) and, other than the fried potatoes, which sometimes looked a little suspect, I had no inkling that leftovers were ever reheated the following day which so many 3-star hotels tend to get a bad reputation over. The restaurant staff however are lacking in character and look disinterested, which I feel is exacerbated greatly due to the fact that they speak very little English between them. On one occasion I even asked for a spoon only to be given a knife, so a bit more focus on English culinary language really should top the agenda at the next staff training session! :) As has already been commented the pool water is quite warm as it gets the sun most of the day. This is either a plus or a minus depending on what you prefer and I am sure away form the summer months the pool will be noticeably cooler. In keeping with a hotel of this age the hotel rooms are quite dated and could do with modernisation - particularly the bathrooms which are very much a step back to the 70's, complete with coloured suite. However, the superior rooms which are located adjacent to the 'lazy river' pool do look to be located within a more modern block than the main hotel where we stayed and may not have these issues. The balcony is quite small and cannot really manage more than a small round table, two chairs and a couple of lilos, so if lounging on a balcony or having more than 2 people on the balcony at once is your thing then this is not the hotel for you. The other big selling point for the hotel is its location. Whilst it is a 25-30 minute walk away from the harbour area and its many bars, restaurants and nightlife, there is easy access to lots of shops, bars, restaurants and car hire establishments nearby, along with a handy taxi rank a 1-2 minute walk from the hotel. This long 'strip' of amenities comes to a close at the Kings Avenue Mall - a fully fledged shopping centre with air conditioning, containing a very useful shop (Jumbo) where you can purchase lots of stuff for the beach at much lower prices than the independent stores locally and in town. Walking in the opposite direction from the main 'strip' takes you towards the nearest beach, which is no more than a 10 minute stroll away, although the harbour area mentioned above is the closest proper beach, lying another 15-20 minutes away. I know the hotel has many repeat customers that visit year after year and, with its 'family run' feel and consistently good quality you can see why. As long as you don't compare it with a 4 or 5 star hotel you will not be disappointed and will enjoy your stay here.More
Not bad at all
Stayed here as a couple mid July. Nothing wrong with the hotel.a little tired in places and pool area needs a good clean.the pool bar is expensive and not kept clean but we were b+b so we were out most of time. Breakfast is acceptable. Good location and walkable to everywhere.good bars and restaurants around hotel. Room was spot on although balcony was a little on the tight side as we like to stay in some evenings. Overall good friendly hotel and worth the money. Ps, we paid for safe and fridge but why wouldn't you?? Good aircon tooMore

This is now my 4th visit to the kissos hotel and on all occasions it has been a pleasure.staff are very helpful and friendly and always willing to do that little bit extra to make your stay enjoyable.the entertainment staff are always around doing crazy golf.water aerobics and a quiz in the afternoon.the manager is always around making sure things are as they should be. The rooms are spacious and kept clean and the cleaners are always on hand if you need loo roll or clean towels.the food is good for a 3 star hotel with a good choice of mostly Mediterranean food with a few English favourites as well. Overall my visit to the kissos hotel has been fantastic every year and I can't fault it in anyway and will continue to book it as long as the high standard is Maintained More

Spent a week here at end of July, and had a fantastic holiday. We went for bed and breakfast which suited us fine, definitely not an all inclusive hotel. Breakfast had lots of choice but was the same every day. Stayed in room 507 which overlooked the pool. The pool by our room was lovely and relaxing, although it says in brochure sun beds can't be reserved, everyone still puts there towels down early, by 8am. This is unfair as people are hardly there all day. There is a lovely pool side bar selling soft and alcoholic drinks as well as ice cream and snacks through the day. At night you can chill out and watch the entertainment(entertainment not the best but ok at end of night for last drink) Our room was very spacious and very clean. Bedding changed every two days and towels every three. Air con was very good and kept room nice and cool. There's a balcony to chill out on as well. The staff at the hotel were lovely and so helpful, nothing was to much trouble. There's a small shop serving snacks and souvenirs, the man is lovely who runs it, this is located in the main reception. The reception is very cool, lots of sofas and free wifi. The location is fantastic, just round the corner from restaurants, bars and shops. There is a beach 5 mins away, although if you take a bus(20 mins) you can get to coral bay beach, which is lovely. The bus stop is only 5 mins from hotel near the tomb of kings. You can also get bus to the harbour (10 mins) which has lots to do. A must is to walk to local beach to see the sunset, so beautiful. In all I had a fantastic holiday and would definitely return, lots moaning, but a holiday is what you make it. I would recommend B and B and go to restaurants at night, the food is fantastic and large portions. Wish I stayed longer. More
