Room with great view in recently renovated and constantly improving Penthouse flat. Large wardrobe space. Beds can be merged as a double bed. Only 2-10 mins walking distances away from the old Walled City, checkpoints, public transportation and nightlife districts. Wi-fi + common areas + amenities included.

The space

This cosy room with large wardrobe and window looking at north of Nicosia and mountains beyond is in Penthouse B7, which lies on the 5th floor of an apartment at the most premium location in Nicosia. Facing the Venetian Walls that surrounds the Old City of Nicosia, it is 2-minute walking distance away from pedestrian crossing to the south side of Nicosia. It has a panoramic view of the city, from its 75m2 terrace. It is the house I grew up in, which has been vacant for the last 5 years. It went under a 4-month renovation and refurbishing and decorated with eclectic taste.
(January 2016: As a major investment and improvement, all of the 25 year old aluminium single glass windows and doors are replaced with brand new double-glazed PVC versions for better insulation and convenience in the flat)
(August 2015: A-class air conditioners are installed in the bedrooms)

Guest access

Guests at this cozy room can benefit the comfort of a large room, as a double or two single beds, with large wardrobe space. One bathroom with toilet and another WC is shared with other guests, if there stays any other during your stay.
Guests arrive at a place where they can find Cyprus-related magazines and maps. In the kitchen, brand new washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, cutlery is at everyone's service.
There is wireless internet, hairdryer, 3-piece set (hand, hair, body) of clean towels, ironing facilities. There is no smoking allowed indoors. The guests chill and enjoy a great view from the terrace, drinks, and may be a cigarette! There are a guidelines list for everyone, so guests find it very easy to adapt to the penthouse life. Guests have their own set of keys, and they can access only to their rooms, and also to all common areas.
For those with a car, there is open car park free of charge. I also work closely with the far leading car rental company in Cyprus. You can pick your car from the airport (if you are landing at Ercan) and drive to the house in 25-minutes. Or you can just cross the pedestrian gate on food (if you come to Nicosia with the airport shuttle + taxi) in 2-minutes. And you can just rent it the next day or not.
The pictures on the walls in the rooms and common areas are works of local artists and are actually exhibited to your taste.

Interaction with guests

I do not live at the premise. However, I welcome the guests, introduce them to the house, the room and amenities and tips on how to enjoy Nicosia like a local (or tourist). I am on call 24/7 for any emergency.

Other things to note

Nightlife district is very close to the building. If you fancy a locally popular bands, or restaurants, you do not have to have the toughest footwear to get there. Only in 10 minutes after dressing up, you can enjoy a quality meal at a restaurant or dance to rock tunes, or calmly enjoy a good drink at a cozy pub. Make sure you check out the 'Guidebook' below to see all the sightseeing and nightlife venues and that I am sincere when I say that the flat is located on a prime spot :)

House Rules

Guests are on holiday. Some come to party, some come to relax and explore. One can do all of these very easily at these penthouse. As long as one doesn't jump around or band on the walls, blow up the kitchen or break stuff, or smoke in the house, it is all just fine! I just expect everyone to guard their set of keys very well though.

Orhan was an incredible host. Before I even landed in Cyprus I felt that I had friends in North Nicosia. He gave us the most wonderful recommendations and even took the time to show us around himself, spending hours with us over Turkish Coffees one day and Turkish borek pastries the next. The neighborhood was lovely and the Penthouse itself was so clean, spacious, and airy. I loved all the open windows and doors and curtains blowing in the breeze! I will definitely stay with Orhan again my next visit to Cyprus!

I love music and I am a good conversationalist and keen on cooking in different cuisines. I am a producer (entertainment) / estate investor. Both are my own businesses. I am a man of more alternative tastes, hence you will be advised to use my own local guide to Nicosia (on a bulletin board in my flat), next to all that touristy stuff and historical places. I am an activist at heart, and heavily humanitarian. I enjoy good music and good movies. I appreciate all things being done sincerely, for their own sake and without a hidden agenda. I lived in Turkey, England and France. Traveled mainly in Europe and once to south east Asia.
