The hotel is vintage and well preserved. Quiet while located in Platres and the road that leads to Troodos. It's nothing fancy and relatively clean. It is value for money. With a bit of an effort from the family that owns it, with attention to detail it can become EXCELLENT!

We chose to stay at the New Helvetia hotel. When we arrived we were offered an upgrade for 15 euros which we took. The room (No.48!) was fabulous,...

We stayed in July to enjoy (rather) cooler weather in the Troodos region. The hotel was special to me because my grandparents stayed in this hotel 70 years ago. The hotel is old but clean. The family who owns the hotel are great people. They were so interested in our comfort. You can enjoy every part of the hotel. There...

We had a revitalizing and very relaxing two days break in this beautiful hotel. The owners and staff there make you feel like home. Great place, very well maintained in a fantastic location. Management was so friendly and welcoming. We will definitely go back soon.

We value the peace and quiet of the hotel and its environment. The setting, above the village of Platres and the surrounding forest, contribute to the tranquil and relaxing atmosphere. The hotel, established in the 1920's, retains the simple charm of that period. All the rooms are comfortable and well-furnished,and the food is of the highest standard. We do recommend...

We had a renovated room with great view from the balcony, right in the forest. The room was greta because the bed for our children was on the upper level of the room and it was connected with a staircase. It was a fresh and clean room - will go back for sure this coming winter.
