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.
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

A perfect location, peaceful with an exceptional host, John. The breakfast was incredible and delicious, with local delicacies and a wide choice from cereals, greek youghurt, fresh fruit, choice of bread, croissants, too much to eat in one sitting so John encourages you to take it away for lunch! Only three rooms so very peaceful and intimate. Out of the door is the bustling world of history, cobbled streets, colourful shops and a plethora of tavernas and restaurants. A central location within walking distance of the harbour = boat trips and also a great choice of bus trips to island locations. Perfect courtyard garden to rest and read when exhausted with all Rhodes has to offer.

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!
The apartment is located in the Old Town very close to the clock tower, 22 euro cab ride from the airport. Lots of shops that are all closed during the winter period so in the winter a 15 minute walk to town for shopping and restaurants. The rooms are very comfortable and the services (TV, internet, climate control) work very well. The owner is very accommodating and helpful, recommend contacting them to arrange the arrival and departure.
Despite the proximity to the shops restaurants and the museums and palace, this gem of a hotel is very quiet.
The hostess is typically Greek offering warm hospitality and a tasty authentic Rhodian breakfast.
The place is spotless and the view from the roof terrace is surprising. If you stay in Rhodes town Camelot is the place to stay.
