Portofino Famagusta Reviews
Portofino hotel Jan 03, 2009
Like other places in Cyprus there is not a lot hotels open in the off season. Hence trying to find a hotel in the old town soon turned out to be a futile effort. Everything in the old city is closed during the off season. Hence you need to go outside the old city. Just at the outside of the wall of the old city you will find a big hotel - the Hotel Portofino. It’s a big hotel hence you are sure to be able to get a room in the winter time.
Even though the location of the hotel is pretty good it is unfortunately placed almost exactly between the two gates to the city hence you will have to take a bit of a detour to actually get into the old town. And when you are as unlucky as I you can’t even see the old town from your room because it is facing the new town.
The room is pretty standard with a television - in Turkish only - and a shower, bed and such.
In the morning there is a huge hall for the breakfast and the service is pretty quick - which may be due to the fact that there are only a couple of people eating down there in the morning.
