This was our 2nd trip to Rhodes, but this time we wanted a top hotel in the old town of Rhodes.
The hotel down plays it's location but in reality it is on the famous Street of the Knights which is probably one of the most photographed locations in Rhodes!
It is literally 30-40 metres from the grand palace entrance. And maybe 150 metres from the top of Socrates street with all of the shops, bats and Restaurants. The street also is host to a couple of consular offices inc France and opposite the Italian one.
Spiros the hotel manager was fantastic and seemed to be there 24/7 and nothing was ever a problem for him.
Food and drinks were excellent with the outside area for dining having tables in the sun or shaded by the mature trees.
Air conditioning was permanently on but set at a very comfortable level and meant returning to a chilled room after a hot day in Rhodes was a welcome return home to base.
Unlike many hotels in Rhodes there is plenty of hot water even for a family like ours with 3 female water babies.
This was one holiday which we would have been happy to stay on forever.
"An Old Town jewel of a 4 room classic Greek style"
A gem of a find, so enjoyed, off season. Stergos has brilliantly renovated this very small space using classic Greek plain styling, with an imaginative use of every inch to provide all necessary comforts. The simplicity of white & wood relaxes ones soul. If you like intimate, you'll love this!
The experience staying here was just as good as last time. The location is a short walk from the "Marine Gate" which provides very convenient access to many taxi options waiting at the taxi stand. There were even several taxi waiting at 5 a.m. when I had to leave for my flight.
The location is also centrally located with many convenient options for restaurants and a grocery store in the same building making for quick snack and refreshment options that are usually harder to find so close to tourist areas.
The room is simple but that is what I was looking for in a hotel. If you want something fancy, go somewhere else. If you want a truly unique experience unlike anything you will find in traditional brand name hotels, this is the place for you.
There are multiple night spots on the same street and this could be of great benefit if you want a short walk back to your room after enjoying the local night life!
The staff were the same people working last year. It was nice to see familiar faces. I think it is a credit to this place that the same people are keeping the place up from year to year. I highly suggest this place for your stay on Rodos!
Spent 2 nights there in september. Alex, Kyle and Duncan were wonderful. Good directions, restaurant recommendations (mama sophia and manolis dinoris very good) and car rental arrangements (butterfly car rental just for day trip to lindos and beach since no cars/parking anywhere near hotel). Great breakfast. Room comfortable. Our room was an ex knights of st john chapel so a little cave like. I suspect the upstairs rooms are brighter.
It is hard to find although close to everything else in the old city. They'll come and get you and see you off at the taxi. Alex's directions are excellent. I relied too much on open street map/citymaps2go - works great until the battery died at 2:30 am. Duncan cheerfully came and collected us at the "illuminated mosque"
By the way google maps is currently shows an incorrect location and is uniformly just about useless in Rhodes town. Political problem

I stayed here with an old girlfriend in 2002 and the hotel was well up to standard then. Wow, it's 100 times better now. the whole hotel has been revamped and has a lovely wooden terrace for chilling with drinks. The rooms are much more modern and the price is still very reasonable.
