Lindos View or Lindos Athena

Hello folks

We are a wedding party and traveling to Lindos early October 14.

We would like the know which one would you recommend.Either Lindos View or Athena.

Also which one is close to the village as we have a couple of old folks with us.

Both are a similar distance from the village, Athena being just a tad further back on Krana than Lindos View which is on the main road. Whichever way you walk in to Lindos its a hill, but shorter via the Lindos Reception end. Coming back up naturally is harder but taxi's are always available from the main square (and to it if you need it) at a cost of about €4.

Following in from Babs reply.... I guess you need someone who has stayed at both places to be able to answer your question fully. I've only ever stayed at the Athena while in Lindos and I'll be back again in 8 weeks time :-), don't get me wrong, I've stayed at other places on the Island, but the Athena has given me what other hotels haven't.... that personal touch!

I would definitely think Lindos View is the smarter option although I don't know what the service is like. From the road it always looks like a popular family choice.

The Athena is about five minutes further walk along the Krana Road, the rooms will be more basic but as Andy says you do get the 'personal touch' there. If you want peace and quiet I imagine the Athena may not be your best bet (it's the hotel that never sleeps during Rhodes Rock!).

Pricewise I doubt you'll get a bargain at Lindos View but the Athena does sometimes come up with good deals on Olympic Holidays.

Myself I'd recommend Lindos Gardens! Many recent improvements to the hotel itself with a couple of nice pools and great staff, situated between Lindos View and the Athena! Good bar area which would be nice for your group.
