Football fans can now combine a luxury break at Limassol’s Londa Hotel, Cyprus, with the season’s top UEFA Champions League fixtures
Cyprus’s unique Londa Hotel is offering football fans the chance to combine watching their favourite Group G UEFA Champions League teams, with a relaxing short break at this contemporary boutique hotel in the vibrant seaside town of Limassol.
Fans will have all the advantages of a stunning beach-side location at the award-winning* Londa Hotel with just 45 minutes travelling time to the GSP Stadium in Nicosia (Lefkosia), venue for the UEFA games in Cyprus.
UEFA Group G contestants APOEL FC, the Cypriot home team based in Nicosia, will play Zenit St. Petersburg at the GSP Stadium on 13th September. Later in the season, FC Porto is drawn against APOEL FC on 1st November with the Cypriots then scheduled to play Shakhtar Donetsk on 23rd November. All matches will be played at the GSP Stadium in Nicosia (Lefkosia), Cyprus.
The Londa’s General Manager, Jochen Niemann explains, “This is now the third time in four years that Cyprus has a team playing in the Champions League group stage. We have noticed that supporters are particularly passionate about following their teams. For keen fans planning to travel to Cyprus to watch Champions League matches they can choose stylish accommodation at the Londa, with our renowned restaurant and beachfront location, yet still be close to the GSP Stadium.”
Room rates at the award-winning Londa Hotel in Cyprus cost from €200.00 per night inclusive of breakfast; in November these fall to €138.00 per night.
Located directly on the beach and yet close to the cosmopolitan city of Limassol, the Londa Hotel offers easy and fast access to shopping, wonderful culture and nightlife. The modern main highway from Limassol to Nicosia provides a short transfer to the Stadium.
This modern Italian designed hotel is quietly setting a new fashionable standard for Limassol. With just 68 rooms and suites spread across seven floors, and a dramatic view over the Mediterranean, which dominates the ground floor through floor to ceiling glass doors, this hotel is like no other in Cyprus.
