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.

Excellent hotel in a good location.
Kissos is a fairly modern 3* hotel. Very clean and well maintained. Rooms are on three floors and whilst not luxurious are spacious, well decorated with adequate storage and most have comfortable twin beds. There is an option to upgrade to a superior room. Bathroom had bath with shower over. Clean towels and bed linen every other day. The balcony was rather small, having two chairs and a table and a small drying rack, and as the hotel is built at right angles to the beach most rooms have a side sea view. Staff were very helpful and all were extremely friendly.The restaurant had a good selection at breakfast, cooked, cereal, and continental with plenty of drink options. As I was B&B I cannot comment on lunch or evening options. The restaurant had tables both inside and in a covered area outside. There were three pools, a formal one, a freeform one and a third indoors. The weather was excellent during my visit and most guests were using the outdoor pools. The pool bar was first class and served drinks of all sorts, ice-creams and a variety of snacks between 9-00am and midnight. There were more than enough beds around the pool to cater for anybody that wanted one. There were a variety of different games rooms for those that wanted that type of entertainment. Wi-fi was free in the public areas and was of a good speed, and was also available in rooms at an additional charge. The hotel was about a five minute walk from the Tombs of the Kings and about 25 minutes walk to the port, either along the main road or the coastal path. For those who didn't want to walk the stop for the 615 bus, which ran between the port and coral bay, was two minutes away. There was a sandy beach about a five minute walk away at the end of the road where the hotel was. For those on B&B there were at least 10 different restaurants within a five minute walk from the hotel.More
Lovely Week Away
Myself and my Fiancé visited for a week in early June. We opted for the room with a pool view and late check out, which was well worth the extra money. The hotel is a little dated but this didn't bother us. Our room was spacious and very clean. The maids kept the rooms very clean and tidy, and if you wanted a lie in you could put do not disturb on the door and they would return later to tidy up. Reception were very helpful, especially Tina who gave us tips on where to visit on the island. The hotels location is ideal with buses running to the beach and the harbour every ten minutes, and plenty of bars and restaurants just 2 mins from the hotel if you want to eat out. We went half board and whilst breakfast was very nice the evening meal could be improved as it was quite bland. I would say this is more of an adults hotel as there is not a lot for children to do and not a huge amount of entertainment available. I would suggest getting a hire car whilst in Paphos so you can go and explore more of the island as there is so much to see! we could have easily stayed for another week. All in all very good value for money and would definitely go back again!More
Altogether Travel Assisted Holiday
I've just returned from a week at the Kissos Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus supporting a wheelchair - using client on an Altogether Travel assisted holiday. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and were given every possible assistance to ensure we had an enjoyable, trouble - free holiday. The staff were superb, from reception ( special thanks to Tina, Maria and Anastasia ) to the waiting staff and bar crew ( special thanks to The Girls from Georgia and Rumania!) Also a special mention for Adrienne, the Sports and Entertainment co-ordinator from Hungary, the nicest bingo caller I've ever met! She took time to talk to our client and make him feel welcome and valued. The hotel which caters for families and couples has an open, restful ambience and is very well - maintained. Rooms are spacious, easily accessible for wheelchair users and we were given an adapted room with shower room equipped for people with disabilities. Food was international, of good quality, varied and plentiful with both buffet and à la carte menus. The pools were cleaned daily at an early hour ( never too crowded ), the gardens were beautiful and well maintained. Only a 2km walk to the harbour along the beautiful coastal path, the local area is well served by supermarkets, restaurants and a new shopping mall with upmarket clothing stores, fast - food outlets and importantly, excellent air con! The nearby main road has buses (615) to the Tombs of the Kings archaeological site and in the opposite direction, the town centre and harbour. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Paphos, especially for its excellent, friendly and helpful staff. Many thanks to you all! ( Efcharisto parapoli!)More
I stayed here on a half board basis one week. This Hotel was booked purely as a base for attending a wedding in another hotel further up the coast. My room was clean and big enough for me as a solo occupier. Plenty of cupboard space and quite a few drawers. I had a room overlooking the pool and bar which was nice. Not noisy on an evening as everything seems to be over by 11.30. The mattress on the bed was rock hard. I got used to it after a few days but I think some would struggle. It was really hard. Pillows nice though. Shower worked fine. Hairdryer didn't work. Air conditioning worked but when it was turned on water dripped through the ceiling. Some thing to do with condensation I presume from the unit but the drip drip drip during the night was really annoying. I had to put a towel down on the floor to catch the water as it was quite a puddle by the morning. A clean towel was left every day by the cleaning lady to replace it. It looked to be an on going problem by the state of the ceiling. I didn't think much could be done about it so I have to say I didn't report the problem to reception. The ladies that cleaned the room were lovely. Very friendly. Hang the "do not disturb" sign on the door if you want a lie in. On Reception some staff were more helpful than others but all very pleasant. The food was awful. Bland. Overcooked. Unimaginative. The "Carvery" was a lump of totally dried up turkey with some overcooked veggies and dry cauliflower cheese. Awful. Breakfast was dire. Really wet greasy smoked bacon and cold fried potatoes. Rock solid fried eggs. The cold breakfast looked ok, cheese, tomatoes, spam type meat. Fruit juice was awful. Packet mix stuff I think. The fruit was fresh and probably the best chioce to go for. No choices of different types of bread rolls or pastries which are normally offered in other hotels in same price range. Tea and coffee nice enough. I gave up on the food and ate out. There are quite a few restaurants and bars within walking distance to choose from. Not too expensive either but if you hadn't planned for extra food bills this may be worth consideration. Pool area nice. But sun bed cushions hadn't seen a wash. Some where so obviously black rather than the blue they should have been. I never used the sunbeds for that reason but other guests didn't seem to mind. Maybe it was just me being fussy. Evening entertainment was very basic. Something to while away a few hours but it didn't leave you feeling that you had had a fab nights entertainment. Bingo...if there was enough people, a singer or dancer and then the guest's rely on each other for entertainment and bar chat. Day time entertainment was afternoon quiz, some pool games, usual stuff. Lass that organised day stuff was really canny and tried her best. Hotel great as a base for walking. Long costal walks in either direction. Tombs of the kings next door. Bus stop within walking distance. Plenty of parking spaces for those with hire cars. Harbour about a 25 min walk away via the main road or 35 ish via costal path. Paphos lighthouse 20 mins ish walk away. Municipal beach about 10 mins walk but if you like sand and a gentle slope into the sea you will be disappointed. Rocky beach and rocks into sea. I wasn't overly impressed with Kissos Hotel but some of the quests said they had been coming for years and wouldn't change it. Each to their own. I think it serves a purpose as a clean safe place to use as a base, especially if you like a firm mattress, but I would not go for the food or entertainment.More
