Famagusta Hotels

Famagusta Hotels

As the historic capital of North Cyprus, Famagusta is the destination for anyone wanting to get involved with the history and culture of the island.  Every street corner is packed with examples of architecture of different eras, cathedrals, ancient ruins and churches.  Some of the best-loved sights in the town include St. Nicholas Cathedral (Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque), Othello’s Tower, the Roman City of the Salamis and the Famagusta Ramparts.  As the town has developed, the historical side has been joined by a more modern settlement and so now there is a pleasant mix of shopping and eating, as well as access to some of the island’s most beautiful beaches nearby.

Famagusta hotels cater well for the crowds of tourists who come for the history, the sunbathing and the food, with a variety of standards of accommodation available.  Several of the larger hotels sit outside the town itself but are within easy reach of central Famagusta and generally very well equipped so that you may not even want to venture out!  The rather grand Kaya Artemis hotel has a reproduction of the Temple at Ephesus, decorated by columns and statues, to greet guests as they arrive.  The hotel offers sea and sand and is well equipped with all luxury amenities for £194 a night on a full board basis in high season.  The three star Mimoza Hotel sits by the sea in the Salamis area of Famagusta and has sea views, an a la carte restaurant and amenities galore.  Bilfer Palm Beach hotel has recently undergone a refurbishment and is an ideal choice for sun worshippers and explorers alike.  Bilfer has rooms from around £70 a night.  Venus Beach Residences and Hotel just outside Famagusta is right on the beach and offers modern accommodation from around £54 per night for a double room.  Finally, the Salamis Bay Conti Resort Hotel is also perfectly placed for a beach hotel and some spectacular sea views and has rooms from around £58 per night.
