Football fans can now combine a luxury break at Limassol’s Londa Hotel, Cyprus, with the season’s top UEFA EUROPA League fixtures
Cyprus’s unique Londa Hotel is offering football fans the chance to combine watching their favourite Group J UEFA Europa 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 GSZ Stadium in Larnaca, venue for the UEFA Europa League games in Cyprus.
UEFA Group J contestant AEK Larnaca, the Cypriot home team based in Larnaca, will play Steaua Bucaresti on 29th September and the German strong holds FC Schalke 04 will play on 20th October. Later in the season Maccabi Haifa is drawn against AEK Larnaca on 1st November. All three games will be played at the GSZ Stadium in Larnaca.
Londa Hotel General Manager Jochen Niemann explains, “This is the first time that AEK Larnaca has qualified for the UEFA Europa League Group Stages. This is a great achievement for Cyprus football and a sell out crowd for each home game is expected. Fans planning to travel to Cyprus to see the Europa League matches can choose stylish accommodation here at the Londa, enjoying our renowned restaurant and beachfront location, yet still be close to the GSZ 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 Larnaca 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.
