We chose Vivian Studios for the reviews and for the location, we were not disappointed. The studios are well located not far from Rhodes Town but far enough that you feel part of the local community which was wonderful. The room was light, clean and had a little sunny balcony perfect to sit out on and watch the sun come up and the people go about their daily lives. I especially loved the songs coming from the monks on Filerimos on the Sunday morning. Vivian and Irene were welcoming and attentive. I loved sitting with an expresso in the shade of a lilac tree in the small courtyard and hearing all about Rodos from Irene. Self catering was easy as the Super Market and Bakery is just across the street and unbelievably cheap. Cooking was a bit of a challenge as there is only a two ring hob but we still managed eggs and bacon on most mornings and you can eat out at the local Tavernas each evening which was wonderful. We will definitely be returning to Rhodes and to Vivian studios hopefully very soon. I can highly recommend.
I have just returned from a week at the Pandora. It is a small and quiet apartment block, only ten rooms. The accommodation is basic but very clean. The pool and garden area were a delight, especially the fragrant jasmine as you walked through the gate. Michalis was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were good value and lots of different things to eat, including fruit.
The Pandora is in a great location, not far from the beach, some nice restaurants and a short walk into resorts in either direction. For me, the bus route into Rhodes town was a bonus, reasonable fare and frequent service so you could travel to the east side of the island quite easily.
I would recommend the Pandora.
