Many people travel to North Cyprus for business purposes, and there are obviously some firm favourites in terms of preferred hotels with business travellers. However, if you venture off the beaten track and away from the main population centres of Lefkoşa, Kyrenia or Famagusta, facilities for business travellers are sometimes limited. What is offered at the main business friendly hotels is however at least adequate, and indeed at times impressive too.
Most of the main hotels now offer wi-fi internet access in either their foyers or guest rooms, so if you do still need to work after an onsite meeting perhaps, you can send that all important email or document to your office.
If you need an onsite conference facility then most of the major 5 star hotels can provide a fantastic choice of meeting rooms, media technology and can handle large numbers of conference attendees and offer catering, refreshments and meet office requirements.
Our choice of hotels for the business traveller incorporates most of the 5 star hotels, because in recent years the construction of larger and more modern facilities have taken the needs of the businessperson into account – this, coupled with the growth of the communications sector in TRNC that means that wireless communication has become the norm, means that North Cyprus is very flexible and international business friendly!
Rocks Hotel/Colony Hotel/Jasmine Court/Savoy Ottoman Palace/Dome Hotel/Life Hotel
All the 5 star establishments can comfortably offer the business traveller excellent accommodation, wi-fi connection, office services, modern media equipment and superior dining options, as well as being able to accommodate trade fairs and presentations.
Mercure Hotel/Merit Crystal Cove/LA Hotel/Deniz Kizi Hotel/Malpas Hotel
To the east and west of central Kyrenia there are several other establishments including 5 star hotels which can accommodate conferences, meetings and fairs, with modern technology available to assist in making your event a success. The Mercure in particular has huge meeting rooms for up to 1000 people, and can cater for banquets, cocktail parties and cinematic events.
Merit Crystal Hotel & Casino/Golden Tulip/Saray Hotel/City Royal Hotel
The trusty Saray and City Royal hotels have been the mainstay for most business travellers to Lefkoşa for many years, although recent additions of the Merit chain of hotels and the fancy Golden Tulip are surely giving them a run for their money. Those who require basic accommodation will be satisfied with both the Saray and City Royal, although they are somewhat dated, but still offer room for smaller business meetings as well as office services should you require them.
Salamis Bay Conti Resort/Dee European Hotel
Both these 5 star hotels located on the coast in Famagusta have a wealth of facilities to satisfy even the most complicated schedule and requirement list with 8 meeting rooms and theatres to choose from by day, and the world class resort activities and facilities to assist with relaxation and winding down by night.
That concludes our listing for hotels suitable for the business traveller, and no doubt you can find something within this article that suits your particular requirements. North Cyprus has a blossoming business sector, and with many countries seeking to invest here, they will be pleased to see how well they are catered for!
There are also some events companies starting up in North Cyprus, so if you do have a company function that requires a lot of organising then you can also make use of their organisational skills and talents to ensure that your event is a stress free affair.
