Still the room was basic. Old and tired but NO cockroaches! Just ants which were sprayed regularly by us. TV had continental plug but socket was English so couldn't plug it in! Air conditioning I would not use as was old and dusty looking, not good for asthmatics
Top tip.... Don't stay there or buy your own pesticide spray!!!!
Because of this and stories from other guests we did not eat there even though we paid for B&B.

Hotel tip: Top floor rooms Take own pesticide Eat out, first and last pub best breakfast ever!
Accommodation was very basic, but clean enough and rooms were serviced regularly, but the boiler broke down mid-week so there was no hot water for 3 days. The self-catering equipment in my studio was basic, to say the least, but fortunately I did not need to use it, apart from boiling water for a wash!
Food was a big let down, I'm afraid. I only bothered with "breakfast" once during my stay and the evening meals were very expensive for what they were and very poor, especially when there are so many excellent eateries on the doorstep. The soup was especially bad and jelly and ice cream is not my idea of dessert!
The location was ideal for me - midway between the old town and the beach. It was also far enough away from the noisy town centre to have peace and quiet. Road noise from the adjacent dual carriageway was not a problem.
The best thing about this hotel was the hotel's staff (not the owners), who did their best to make everything as good as possible. I also met some very nice fellow guests, some of whom are hotel regulars, especially during the winter.
There were two types of in-house entertainment in the bar. Football was on nearly every day I was there and as soon as the football ended, the karaoke machine was fired up. Not my cup of tea, but then I don't go on holiday to sit in a bar.
I am definitely going back to Pathos, but am afraid the Paphiessa did not come up to scratch so I'll be staying elsewhere in the future.

The rooms are so grotty and dated that it is wholly depressing, and we had back ache all week from the beds. The communal area is just as ugly, and the bar full of rude, drunkard ex-pats who don't even stay there. I had no hot water for two days, and when I politely addressed the matter, I was sworn at and accused of offending 'his people'.

Rooms were cleaned regularly.
Food was good and reasonably priced. Excellent service.
Good little shop on the corner opposite the hotel.
Andreas Taxis on the corner were also very friendly.

A smokers paradise. Dirty shabby and old fashioned would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The owners are rude and uninterested. The decor looks like it hasn't been changed since the 70's. The rooms are grubby and stink of cigarette smoke. The bathrooms dirty with cracks in sinks and bath.
The food - dreadful. Poor choice, and reminiscent of British seaside hotel in the 60's. eg Tomato soup, fish and chips, ice cream and jelly. I kid you not! Breakfast - sliced bread, reheated eggs, undrinkable coffee. No Cypriot food on menu apart from Haloumi!
Evenings - Appalling down - market entertainment in a smoke filled bar.
Definitely the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Dreadful value for money. There must be better than this, surely?
Paphos itself, has some nice parts, but the area near hotel is tacky, all gift shops and fast food chains.
Hire a car and see the real Cyprus, away from the crowds. There are some gems to be found, but you have to look for them!

Food was excellent all holiday. The staff were a credit to you.
Not a football fan. Just our luck it was on most days.
Would visit again under our own steam not with travel firm.

from a bochure.
Having said that the room was clean with a fridge, small 2 ring hot plate and a microwave and aircon. Our room away from main building overlooking waste ground and abandoned car.
We stayed on half board - beakfast simple greek/continental style, evening meals were on the whole good, but menu lacked choice and meals were very plain, but service excellent.
Hotel staff were very helpful and polite cannot fault them.
There were plenty of sunbeds by the pool and the area alway looked clean and tidy. The road noise was not too off putting. For a good beach take the No. 10 bus to Coral Bay for 80c.
Plenty of Bars and restaurants just 10 / 15 minutes walk away with a vast choice of food at cheap prices
