We spent a week here in July and I have to say I agree with the majority of reviews. This is a friendly family run hotel with well thought out, well laid out, very clean rooms. And of course , the icing on the cake, Rhodes Old Town within walking distance.
The hotel is about a 15 to 20 minutes walk to the old town. Although in the heat I would recommend thinking about using taxis, 7 Euros from the hotel or 5 Euros if flagged down in the street. There is a bus stop a couple of minutes walk from the hotel which takes you into the old town for 1.10 Euros but be prepared to wait around and there only ever appears to be standing room only. The owner, very kindly, printed us out a bus timetable covering all routes.
Our room was very spacious, more of an apartment really, with a lounge and kitchen area separate from the bedroom and bathroom. There was a fridge, 2 ring cooker, dining tables and chairs, a sofa bed and a couple of easy chairs. We also had a balcony with a seating area, great in the evenings with a glass of wine. I don't think I have ever stayed at a cleaner hotel. The cleaner even washed our cups, glasses and plates for us!
The bathroom had a shower unit only. The shower was adequate but pressure could have done with being a little better.
You are within walking distance of the local beach, 5 to 10 mins. The pool is best used as a means of cooling off on a hot day. You won't be able to hone your chances of appearing in the next Olympics in it!
Breakfast was plentiful but mainly omelettes, local bacon and hash browns. Most days they served French toast-loved it and couldn't get enough. There were also cereals and pastries and some days fresh fruit and yoghurt. Breakfast was from 8-10.30 which was great because you didn't have to rush down too early to eat.
When we went all rooms were occupied but it was very quiet. We saw other guests at breakfast and heard the occasional door close but there weren't noisy guests running up and down corridors, shouting or banging doors in the middle of the night. Made for a more pleasant holiday experience. Didn't hear barking dogs! Someone must have shot them!
