Review: Manolia City Residences – Nicosia

2016-12-12T21:50:15+00:00 December 12th, 2016|

Manolia City Residences is located in the heart of Nicosia, in the famous shopping street Stasikratous. We booked to stay there based on the top reviews it has been receiving since its opening, the low prices and of course its location. Prices vary from 45 Euros up to 65 Euros per night, depending on the room you wish to book. Location - Stasikratous Street The location of Manolia is their biggest advantage. As already mentioned, it is located in Stasikratous street, a safe street, where you can find a lot of designer stores, trendy shops and boutiques, including Max Mara, Karen Millen, Kem Handbags, Folli Follie etc. Besides clothing and shoes, you can find luxurious jewelers and boutiques. There are also some restaurants e.g. Fogo & Brasa, cafe/bars e.g. Stasikratous 30, Pralina etc. Makariou street is only a few meters away and there you can find all the high [...]

Kelly, the owner, emailed me straight away asking me what time we'll be arriving, if we need wood for the fireplace, or dinner/breakfast in order for her to sort it out. We booked at Vavla Rustic Retreat since it had the best reviews and met our requirements. We needed a 2 bedroom country house in a nice village, with a fireplace and traditional  Cypriot feel. Friendly Owner We arrived at Vavla Rustic Retreat and Kelly was waiting for us. She toured us around the place and even showed us all rooms and told us the history of the old traditional family stone house. An old restored house This place has been restored though funding by the Cyprus Government and the EU. The rooms contain traditional Cypriot items which were used mainly for preparing and storing food e.g. bread. They have maintained the [...]

Aegean Airlines – A Traveller’s Review

2016-11-01T10:30:58+00:00 October 15th, 2016|

For 9 year years now, I've been flying with Aegean almost exclusively. I always try to book with them, even if I have to pay something more compared to low cost airlines, since I'm happy with the overall experience, service and the fact that they fly almost everywhere in Europe. In 2016, Aegean was voted by passengers for the 7th time the “Best Regional Airline in Europe” in a worldwide survey of more than 18 million airline passengers conducted by independent research firm Skytrax for its 2013 World Airline Awards. This award, which AEGEAN wins for the 4th time since 2009, is yet more proof of the high quality of the services provided by the company to its passengers, who continue to put their trust in it and place it at the top of their choices. Aegean Airlines is the largest Greek airline who has carried the largest number of passengers, serving a large number of destinations with [...]
