There is a wide range of lodging for the visitors arriving in North Cyprus. It may be a hotel near the sea or in the centre of the city, a holiday village or a rented villa - tourists are welcomed to choose accommodation that suits them better.
According to the Northern Cyprus Hoteliers Association (KITOB) all the hotels that are members of this organisation are divided in several categories by the T.R.N.C Tourism Board. According to the local standards tourist accommodation includes boutique hotels, holiday bungalows, holiday complexes, holiday villages, hotels, hotel apartments, and special class accommodation.
Boutique hotels are distinguished by a stylish design and 24-hour personalised level service which corresponds to the best international standards. They offer additional on-site facilities for their guests and visitors: restaurants, swimming pools, mini golf, bars, casinos, etc. Hotels labelled as 'boutique' often provide a number of additional guest services such as a restaurant, a swimming pool or childcare. Some hotels have conference services and encourage groups to hold conventions and meetings at their location.
Hotelsrange according to the variety of facilities offered. Basic accommodation includes a telephone, an alarm clock, a TV, air-conditioner, as well as a mini-bar (sometimes with a small refrigerator) containing snacks and drinks (to be paid for on departure), and tea and coffee making facilities. More luxurious hotels have swimming pools, shops and on-site restaurants. Some offer facilities for holding conferences, business or entertainment meetings.
Holiday bungalows or so-called self catering bungalows are very popular among tourists who travel with children. Before moving in, be sure that all the facilities including bathroom, fans, air-conditioners, are in working order. Holiday complexes usually include plenty of facilities for families, individuals or tourist groups. You will never get bored while staying in a holiday complex.
Special class, cheap hotels are usually situated in non-tourist zones providing tranquillity for their guests. Most of them occupy historical buildings which were restored for hotels needs but preserved original atmosphere and design. Special class hotels offer local cuisine, traditional entertainment, as well as traditionally warm welcoming.
In case you want to stay together with a big family or a numerous company of fiends, you'd rather rent out a furnished apartment or house. Many villas and apartments are vacant for rent in North Cyprus. You may feel free to choose houses by location, size, style, number of available facilities, and price. Contact the local letting agencies for more information.
