Hotel Arisnoe - Room

The room we had, like much of the rest of the hotel, has a bit of a dated feel to it mainly caused by the various shades of brown decor which was last seen in the UK in the 70's, but it was clean and, though not large by any standard, was completely ample for two - more than enough room to swing several cats. There was a power socket sensibly placed behind the dressing table and another easily accessable on a blank wall. Some of the welcome documents said not to use electrical equipment in the rooms, but seriously... they have to be joking - my travel kettle hadn't travelled for nothing. The sockets are standard UK square pin ones, so you don't need any adapters (except me who had ensured I only brought european round pin chargers with me so had to borrow an adapter from reception - deposit of Cy£2.00). There is a television in the room that could pick up one solitary german channel (untill we got it tuned to about 3 extra Greek speaking ones), and a radio which got more use, picking up Radio One (the cypriot version - but english speaking as it aimed at the forces stationed out there). We had twin beds that were fairly narrow (2.5 foot) but comfortable with a decently thick pillow. The aircon was OK, and though we were there in the last 2 weeks of may it was about 25c - 28c, so I suspect it would cope with high season too.
The bathroom has a bath with shower and the toilet paper can go down the loo, or at least there are no signs saying you can't (unlike the little bins you have to use in most of Greece and in many other places in the resort) and there's also a shaver socket. The room also had a hairdryer right next to the dressing table.
The windows for the room are full height patio doors that lead out onto the balcony and they cover the full width of the room too which makes the room nice and light. The balcony itself was OK with the standard 2 plastic patio chairs and a table.
All in all I had no complaints with the room at all.
