Placing G&D Hotels Project 2 in the Context of Paphos
The project is situated on Tomb of the Kings Avenue. part of the area of Paphos situated close to the Kato Paphos south-westerly coastline and beaches that has seen rapid economic and tourist development from 1975 to the present day. Kato Paphos is one of four resorts in the district of Paphos that caters principally for tourism. the others being Coral Bay. Latchi and Aphrodite Hills. Kato Paphos is by far the largest and most diverse economy of these four local resorts. being situated close to both the beaches and to the Central Business District of Paphos.
The exact location of the project is placed on the corner of the highway junction between Tomb of the Kings Avenue and Aristarhou Street. The Tomb of the Kings Avenue is widely coveted as a centre of tourism and retail business in Paphos - and is currently in the opening stages of extensive road renovation as part of a local overhaul of the transport system to serve the 2017 European Capital of Culture event.

Situated on the edge of Kato Pafos. the development enjoys direct access to adjacent bus stops and the regular passing service of buses. regulated taxis and airport shuttles. The development is also extremely rare by Paphos availability. in that it was built with a large off-road and paved car park. with the ability to accommodate 40 covered and marked parking spaces. as well as up to 60 auxiliary uncovered parking spaces. inside a defined. walled perimeter. This generally equates to a provision of 2 parking spaces per apartment along with up to 28 extra spaces for visitors.
