Where to stay in Nicosia

Despite being the country's capital, Nicosia is not as geared toward tourists as the resorts on Cyprus' sunny coast. Hotels tend to be geared toward business travelers but provide a comfortable stay. Renting a vacation apartment may be preferable option for many, as they enable you to live more like locals. The greater Nicosia area spreads far and wide, so stay near the old city to access the most popular attractions, bars, and restaurants on foot. For an economical option, look for lodging on the north side of the city.

  • Construction of the Bandabuliya started in 1930, and it was opened two years later in 1932. The bazaar housed everything from greengrocers to butchers and fishmongers. Population increase, and the movement towards the outskirts of Nicosia, forced shopping centres to be closer to the new settlement areas. The closure of roads leading to Turkish parts of the city in 1958, lead to a further decline. Recent years have seen a revival of trade, and this historic bazaar is still a superb market for fresh vegetables and meat, as well as Turkish souvenirs. It as mainly frequented by local shoppers, so any visitor can get a taste of shopping in the old city.
  • Old market renovated with items from fruits and vegetables to clothes and tourist memorabilia and restaurants. Free Wifi. Worth a visit.
  • Authentic and traditional old bazaar. Nice to visit.
  • Traditional and layered with history market. We enjoyed the Lokum (Turkish Delight) shop very much. I believe it is currently undergoing renovations to expand and restore it to its former full glory. Would like to see it again when this is done.
  • Not only fresh vegetables and local products. Best place for souvenirs, bio products, special liquors and cremes
