Good location, clean, friendly staff, good value.

We had 10 nights at this very good hotel.
Dionysos is in a good location in Kato Paphos - two minutes from the sea and seconds away from shops, bars, cafés and restaurants.
This of course means there's a bit of noise from the nightlife.
The reception welcome and hospitality was excellent and the staff were friendly, multilingual and anxious to help.
The Greeks have a word for 'hospitality' - φιλοξενία (philoxenia) - which means friendship to strangers and guests and which is very close to their hearts. We were made to feel very at home.
Rooms are a good size and kept spotlessly clean with balconies looking onto the town and the sea. Towels are changed daily if you want. You get a free use of the in-room safe and fridge. Aircon good too.
The hotel facilities are good for a small hotel with a nice pool area and a peaceful and beautiful little garden with a bar. Perfect for the occasional drink at the end of the night.
Breakfast is a little bonus - good mix of cold meats, cheeses and salad, a hot breakfast buffet, yoghurt, fruit, bread, cereals and pastries. We didn't eat breakfast anywhere else during our whole stay as the selection was good.
The whole experience with Dionysos was wonderful - it was the perfect base for a magical holiday without the impersonal coldness of the larger corporate hotels but with touches that made the stay just as good - and without the painful bill.
Next time I book in Paphos - I will check availability at this little gem first.
