At the reception, even you try to explain that you need a quiet room regardless of the view, they may offer a room just across the ventilation fan by the time where the a/c is not functioning, and you need to open the window due to warm weather. In request of the room change you may fall in worst case.....

This must be the 6th or 7th time we have visited in the last 7 years and we have never been disappointed. Staff and service are excellent and cater for all our needs. Brilliant and we will continue to visit this luxurious hotel. Special thanks to the Ali the marketing Manager who goes out of his way to help😀

We stayed just under a week at this luxurious hotel in April 2017, and were certainly very impressed. We stayed in the 'Heritage Suite' which is fit to accommodate royalty. The whole hotel is a five star experience with great quality throughout and very attentive staff. We stayed on a half board basis, and were happy with the selection of...

We went here to get a feel for north Cyprus and Kyrenia. All the reviews I had read on this hotel on TripAdvisor were accurate. I didn't not pick this hotel but my family did. It is on very noisy road opposite two garages, yes the rooms are very hot - the first night I really couldn't sleep until very...

We discovered this gem of a hotel thanks to the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, and now, after three visits, we would like to add our comments. The service is outstanding. From the welcome at the door, to the front desk, to the staff in the restaurants and spa, we have been impressed with their warm hospitality and professional efficiency....

My wife and I stayed at Arkin Colony Hotel, Kyrenia, Northern Cyprus, for six nights in March this year. We stayed ‘half-board’ at this very competitively priced, beautiful hotel where the free wireless internet was faultless. Front desk, dining room, swimming pool and cleaning services were top class, while friendliness, approachability and attention to detail were excellent. We were located...

We realised that this weekend would be the last one all of us could be together for quite a long time. So decided to book into the colony overnight. On arrival we found both couples had been given an upgrade to a suite, and we had already been given an excellent deal by manager Ali. The rooms were fantastic with...

We have not stayed here for over 10 years. Sadly meals are now buffet style, which is a great pity as the hotel's overall quality indicates that it should be maintaining waiter service at main meals. We only had breakfasts in the hotel, so cannot comment on what is available. Breakfasts were generally pretty good with a wide range of...
