From five-star resorts to traditional-style boutique hotels, Cyprus offers many different accommodation offerings. To get the most out of this island nation, hiring a car is highly recommended – you can drive from the westernmost point to the easternmost point in around 3.5 hours. That being said, every corner of Cyprus is worth visiting and no matter where you go you won’t be far from pristine beaches, stunning scenery and Mediterranean cuisine and culture.

Nicosia is the last divided European capital in the world, but staying in the charming old town you get to cross the green line from north to south or vice versa. My recommendation would be to stay in a boutique hotel to experience Cypriot hospitality, traditional architecture and local breakfast which is often included. Boutique hotels in Nicosia are renovated traditional houses and in most cases have only six or seven rooms. Djumba Hotel and Valide Hanim Konak are both excellent boutique hotels also known for their quality cuisine.
Prices for Djumba Hotel & Cafe: Doubles from £55
Hotel Valide Hanim Konak price: Doubles from £56
