    The esteemed honour of accepting these two awards on behalf of Londa Hotel fell to its General Manager Jochen Niemann, who travelled to Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso in Athens, Greece to attend the World Travel Awards™ Europe Gala Ceremony on Saturday 2 August.

    The gratitude that Niemann extended to all of those who voted in favour of the hotel could be felt in what he had to say: “It was a humbling experience knowing that I was representing one of the best hotels in Europe because I would not be there if not for all the hard work of the staff and the appreciation of our guests. Such notable Awards like these are a reminder to all in the Travel industry that we must always aim to be the best at what we do – at Londa we never forget this.”

    1.  What is the best feature of your hotel?

    Hilton Cyprus is the only 5 star hotel in Nicosia.  We are constantly developing in order to attract guests from the domestic and international markets.  The hotel attracts many large conferences, governmental delegations, official visits and VIP stays. Offering fully equipped extensive meeting facilities with themed coffee breaks, and variety of food & beverage options that suit all tastes.  We have a long history on hosting prestigious weddings and social events. In terms of leisure, the Hiltonia Health Club is considered one of the best health clubs in town and our members have been loyal to us for many years.

    2.  How do Cypriot 5 star hotel compare to others in the world?

    Nowadays, Cypriot 5 star hotels match the high international standards of other hotels around the world. As a matter of fact over the last years we have seen Cypriot hotels secure Worldwide Hotel Awards, certificates and recognitions.

    3.  How does the well know Cypriot hospitality play a role in your hotel?

    It is generally accepted that Cypriots have a warm and loving nature that really impresses visitors every time they come to Cyprus. Our mission as a Hilton property is to do our utmost to satisfy and even exceed guests’ expectations. Since 1967 we are welcoming guests to Hilton Cyprus and encouraging them to experience the Hilton as well as the Cypriot hospitality through our various excellent facilities.

    4.  What do you recommend your customers to do when it’s raining outside?


    Well the best place to be when it is raining outside is Hilton Cyprus where you can explore endless leisure facilities. From staying connected to friends and family with our free Wi-Fi service in all the public areas of the hotel, to enjoying a freshly brewed cup of coffee at the well known Lobby Lounge, having lunch at our Fontana restaurant or even staying in shape at our magnificent Hiltonia Health Club. Furthermore, we have many shops to satisfy all tastes and preferences. So we could say the options are so many for our guests that even when the weather is not that good, which happens rarely in Cyprus, we are able to facilitate a pleasant stay.

    5.  If there was one thing that you could change about the hotel, what would it be and why?

    The only steady thing in life is change! If were to do in the future what we did in the past, there would be no progress. Because we are proud of our long Hilton tradition, we continuously work towards improving our future.

    1. What is the best feature of your hotel?

    There are too many to mention! We have fantastic huge gardens and are on the best large beach in Limassol. 90% of our rooms are sea view. Our food is great and we think of ourselves as extremely good value for money.

    2. How do Cypriot 5 star hotel compare to others in the world?

    We have very high standard hotels on the island. The quality and service of our product is excellent. I can only speak for St Raphael Resort with specific examples, but to name some our standard rooms are generally larger than standard rooms in Europe, as with most hotels here we offer an array of in-hotel restaurant options and great breakfasts with huge buffets.

    3. How does the well know Cypriot hospitality play a role in your hotel?

    There is always service with a smile! Cypriot hospitality is hugely important to us and we even train our ‘non-Cypriot’ staff to learn about the local culture, history and language. We are proud to show off our Cypriot hospitality with our wide selection of food, big buffets and large portions!

    4. What do you recommend your customers to do when it’s raining outside?

    It only rains here about ten times a year!, but if you are caught here on a rainy day, there are so many things to do in Cyprus that don’t involve sunbathing! The amount of interesting areas, archeological sites and historical locations to see is incredible. If the weather is not great, it is the perfect time to rent a car and explore some villages and other towns.

    Another great idea is to visit one of our amazing tavernas serving huge mezes which take hours to complete and the perfect way to spend a lazy lunch and early afternoon. In Limassol, I would recommend visiting the shopping areas too and if the weather is wet then you can go to the Mall. Other nice activities include bowling, paintballing, visiting the zoo, kids indoor play areas, cinemas, wildlife farms, Santa Marina Retreat and much more. Another nice way to spend a rainy day is to book yourself into a spa and utterly relax.   

    5. If there was one thing that you could change about the hotel, what would it be and why?

    That’s a tough one, but I would probably have to say the entrance views. When we built the hotel in 1987, the entrance of the hotel overlooked the gardens and sea giving a breathtaking view as you entered the hotel. In 1993 we built the first of its kind pillar free 525m2 conference room opposite the entrance which has been a huge success with meetings, seminars, banquets and weddings, however appreciating the view was transferred from the entrance to the hall itself.  Our entrance has been renovated this year 2014 and is still very impressive, but that amazing full-on sea view is no longer there.
