I'd like to clear up a few points on The Sylva.
I stayed there for 2 nights on 11 and 12 May 20012 with my friend.I found the three staff who dealt with me(a male Sri Lankan and an Indian receptionist and a Russian cook/waitress)friendly and helpful.However there was a noticeable lack of management presence.
The rooms were clean and comfortable and all the facilitıes worked.After all it's only a 2 star hotel and we got what we expected for what we paid ie.£23 a night each in a double room.
The location was ideally close to sea front and town centre
.However it's location as described on the map as being close to The Municipal Zoo was extremely inaccurate as the actual part of the road it was situated on was 2 kilometers away.It's an extremely long confusing road as it suddenly turns right without indication.

Overall we found it very satisfactory and offer this comment in contrast to the negative comments already made on this site.

It has been two years since me and my friend were a customers in this hotel.
Back then we stayed there for 2 months. It costed as 550 euros a month.Why we stayed there? because it was safe place.we had acces to the kitchen which is placed on the 1st. floor opposite to lift. also the hotel is placed next door to great local bakary and a super market, not forget to mention that there is a taxi depot just opposite to the hotel. In secret I can tell you that there is an easy acces to the roof so you can enjoy nice landskape. The swimming pool looks nice from the roof,also water is clean and it is deep.Due our long stay we had a chance to see for ourselves how a day in this hotel looks like. We got to know the staff better and it turned out that the owner is an old Polish grumpy and greedy guy. he used to be more manish but I think it is because of age. The owner pays the staff about 250 euros a month thats like 10 euros a day for a day or night shift. The handy man is called Roman if I remember correctly and avoid him as much as you can.Just another old grumpy guy. If you skip the owner and open ur self to the receptionist u will meet Shiva [ Indian guy ] and the young boy from Latvia - he is a boxer and his lives in Cyprus with his family.Also there are some people who are being living there for years - very nice people , some of them are Cypriots some not. Forgot to mention another 2 things: if you follow the road up and turn righ and follow the road for 20 mins walk you will find Carrefour hipermarket and a casino. Also there is a free wi fi but only on the 1st and ground floor. Cheap place not worth to spend a penny for food served by them but located very very well. Been there seen this :) All the best and familiarise ur self with those on reception - good people.

I stayed at Sylva Hotel for 2 nights. Yes, It is a very Russian oriented hotel and it will take you back to the 80's. In my opinion, the good word to define this hotel is "Tacky". Bad decoration, bad service, bad location. I asked for a hairdryer and you have to leave 5€ fee for using it that is returned when you are done using it, the funny part was when after used the hairdryer and I planned to leave the hotel for having a walk in the city, the receptionist asked me for it. Why? because they only have 1 hairdryer for the whole hotel (6 floors hotel). Ridiculous! Oh! And they do not have WiFi in the rooms... come on! Is 2018.

Well I don't know what hotel these other reviewers were staying at but this place wasn't that bad. The staff were friendly and helpful the place was tidy.... yes the rooms and corridors are a little old fashioned but that's no issue.

All I would change is to have all the residents situated on one floor and redecorate the whole hotel. Then you can easily charge people 70-80 euro per night and give them a real breakfast because the breakfast I had yesterday was not good at all. Again its not an issue I think they just need a chef and a quality mind

First night was good. Room was dusty but you can live with it if you need just a place to stay.
It started with a breakfast. I was amused.
1. Only instant coffee. They don't have a machine.
2. Half of the salad was mayo.
3. You will get only a tiny plate with salad, 2 sliced chees, ham and few vegetables. And you can help yourself with toasts and orange juce. That's all. Don't expect any sweet stuff.
Moreover they don't provide a shampoo.
Moreover they have cockroaches and very rude staff.

On one of the photos above the bed you can easily find a place I cleaned. So at night you just breath with this dust.

Loved the Sylva hotel....right across from the Holiday Inn just a 2 minute walk away from the beach 15 mins walk from the tourist area which was great for me spending days in the beach and the local area then nights in the tourist area....the owners son was cuuuuuuuuute :-) its a family run hotel and only 2 stars so u cant really expect too much but breakfast was always served (not gourment but well appreciated after a long night) made up of cold cuts, cheese, tomatoes, jams and toast and cereals, the pool was clean and they served great ice coffee! Every room had its different colour and theme some were really cheesy some were quite ok...i liked the japanese room personally but i only saw 3! our rooms were always cleaned garbage taken out and fresh towels were given which is the most u can expect off a 5* hotel

just a note cyprus DOES have cockroaches!!!! so when i found 1 on my first day in the bathroom it was removed right away by a staff member and the entire room was sprayed with repelent. u will find them anywhere and everywhere so dont be surprised.

Spontaneously we have decided to join the carnival in Limassol. It was only few hotels left in Limassol, but we wanted to stay overnight to avoid the traffic on Sunday morning.

I have red few helpful comments on the TripAdvisor about Sylva hotel. It didn't look very promising.

The lady at reception was unfriendly. When I suggested to pass the message to the owner redecorate the place, she answered in the very bad way. She was surprised, how I could possibly think, as soon as I have entered the reception area, that it needs to be redecorated.

The building itself is very old. It hasn't been fixed for ages. The furniture is very old and scruffy, paint is coming off the walls, laminated flooring, which has been placed directly on old carpets is coming off. The room looked clean at first sight, but was unbelievable dirty. Under the beds nobody ever cleaned for last few months at least.

The TV was not working, we had informed the reception and the guy came quite fast and has changed the TV power supply and the socket.

The swimming pool is empty and full of dirt. The paint in the dining area is coming off the ceiling. There were few ants running around the cups on the tables. The breakfast was very poor.

There are couple of good things about the hotel. It's very close to the beach and we even had a sea view. Good location. The rest is bad. Do not recommend at all.

I got few photos to prove.

This is quite possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It is very dated and in need of extreme modernisation. The hotel appears to offer rooms both long term and short term.
On entering the hotel I knew straight away how terrible it was, I was made to wait about 25 minutes before someone came to the front desk to check me in.
Once in the room it can only be described as basic and dirty. The doors leading to the balcony area wouldn't even close and the shower was old, dirty and was difficult to use as there was no shower curtain to stop the water going everywhere.
I could spend all day stating how bad the room was and luckily I had to leave everyday before breakfast had started but I can only imagine what hell that would have been.
All I can say is that this was genuinely the last hotel left in Limassol for the time that I was visiting and I would honestly say that if it is the last hotel next time I visit then I would rather sleep on the beach with the cats.

i went there and just from the reception i thought what am i doing here. the building is very old and clearly not taken good care of. i chose it because it was cheap but its not worth it. if i knew i would have paid more and get a better room. the room was dirty. i was afraid to use the bathroom. obviously it need a renovation. no hot water, the shower mixer was pouring water sideways, no shower gel or clear towels. when i found a towel it had got hair on it and no bath mat. the bed was leaning on one side and the a/c wasnt working and we end up freezing the whole night. extremely cheap and in a good location near the sea but still not worth it.

I coudn't agree more with Alexandra. The hotel is dirty, the room had papers on the floor, there are no lights in the room (there is only one lamp), the personnel and the owner are simply rude. do not book it.when I asked if I can leave my bag somewhere I was told that it is impossible.
I had no idea such hotels could exist.
