“Great memory in the Rhodes Towns”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

We enjoyed our stay in Florida Hotel, it is a nice hotel located in the centre of the town, with walk you can reach supermarkets, restaurants, bus stops, beach and so on. Yvonne is a very nice and friendly host, she prepared the trip adviser case for us in advance, gave us the tips, which help a lot for us as the first time in Greece. The hotel and the rooms are very clean and homelike, the street outside the hotel is picturesque. Great memory in Hotel Florida and Rhodes!

We loved our stay here in the hotel florida...As the greek people are very generous and kind the owner of this hotel Yvonne was very kind and provided the best information on how and where to go around Rhodes for cheap and convenient way..

The rooms are good for the price we paid and the service is more than a 2 star hotel...

We really enjoyed the great hospitality in this hotel and I would really recommend everyone to come and stay here to get a real feel of the greek culture..rather than spending too much money on a 5 star hotel at the beach..
Around the hotel is best restaurant where we had our dinner..That is Kyonos..excellent atmosphere and good food.

Many thanks...

This was one of the friendliest and caring hotels we have ever stayed at. As per other reviews,Yvonne is the perfect host and one of the most genuine people we have met. Rooms are large and very clean. large french doors with lovely shutters leading to balcony overlooking a pictuesque street. Highly recommended!

You will see from the number of mentions on this page, that Yvonne, the hotel owner is an absolute dream of a host. The word "host" has never been so appropriate. She was waiting, alone, on the steps of the hotel for us at one in the morning as we arrived, so full of smiles and genuine warmth that you felt as if you had come to visit your favorite aunt. I cannot speak highly enough of her. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was done with a lovely smile, and on several occasions we were actuallly taken aback by how lovely a hotelier could be - it was humbling and heartwarming. And as an aside - don't take this to mean that she is in any way the type of host/"aunt" who is fussing or inquiring. She is the model of a perfect host - ready for anything, but never entering into anything without an invite.
If you are looking for a place that is genuine and warm (as opposed to the huge, soulless complexes that are dotted along the coast) then I could not recommend this enough. I am an experienced traveller, and this stands out as the nicest place I have stayed.
Ok, it is not 5 star. But it has all of the basics, and more. The rooms are kept spotless, there is wifi, a safe, satellite tv, kettle and cuttlery.
You don't have enough to cook, per se, but you have more than enough to prepare and serve salads and breakfasts.
We had a nice little balcony overlooking the quiet walkway upon which the hotel is located - full of flowers and traditional Greek houses. Quiet, yet situated within a few minutes walk from the beach, a few more minutes to Old Town, and a street away from shops and restaurants.
This hotel had so much charm and such a sweet feel, that when we left, waving back at Yvonne who had come into the street to wave goodbye, we both felt so lucky to have found such a place.

Room Tip: Yvonne will find you the best that she has. There are some rooms without balcony, and I would recomm...

Left our booking too late and there was only 1 night available in the lower floor.
The room was basic, but very adequate.
The best thing about the hotel was the delightful Evyonne, she was so helpful and has a great orientation package with everything you need to show you the town and sights as well as best recommendations to eat.
The street is very quiet and picturesque and meters from everything, at one end the street is George & Marias Falafel house, fantastic food, value and owners.
Will definitely book here again next trip.

My husband made a phone enquiry but forgot to confirm our reservation. When it came time to move from Santorini to Rhodes, Florida Hotel, Yvonne the owner could not accommodate all the dates we wanted. She assured us that she would have at least 1 night for us so we could find alternatives. Upon arrival, what can I say but Yvonne welcomed us as though she had known us forever! She was apologetic even though it was no fault of hers. She could not give us her best room and again apologized. It was on the same level as the lobby, no air con but with a fan and all the basic comforts you needed. I honestly found it comfortable. We have since moved down the road but Yvonne touched me with her warmth, sincerity and her generosity with all the information she could provide to make our stay in Rhodes the best, even though we were moving to another place for 4 more days.

If you want to stay OUTSIDE of the Medieval Town, yet closeby while taking advantage of the beaches, night life, restaurants, shops or very easy access to the ports or airport by taxi or bus, then FLORIDA is the right place for you.

Yvonne, the owner, is a lovely, kind, very patient Greek woman married to a French man , who lives on the premises and is always at the front desk - with a smile - distributing photocopies and documents to all the clients who need tips on where to eat or what to visit.

We stayed for 4 nights in September 2011. The breakfast is a bit basic, but you are free to go to a cafe including the fanstastic KOYKOS which is one block away.

The rooms are basic and simple but quite large by RHODES standards and you will find a fridge, wall fan, balcony with chairs and a parasol overlooking the side street, (AC if needed), large safe, hair dryer and even a TV in the room. The mattress was great too. We stayed in 3 other hotels in RHODES and SYMH. FLORIDA is the only one with a TV in the room. OK you are on vacation, but as far as I am concerned, I enjoy watching the news and other programs in Greek and don't like to be cut off entirely from the rest of the world.
There is a reliable rent a car (MARGARITIS)next door which we used for a 2 day rental and great restaurants nearby. We will definitely return en route to or when returning from other islands since it is convenient for the ports and for the airport. Thanks Yvonne for your help!
