This is a lovely place to stay in Rhodes old town. It is only slightly off one of the old town squares - a few minutes up a side street and well located for access to the centre for buses, and the port for boats to other islands. The hotel cannot be beaten for hospitality and charm. The 700 year old building has been tastefully renovated to provide lovely, fresh rooms with clean decor and furnishings. The property next door is currently being renovated by the owner, and having had a preview of the accommodation, I can confirm that it is simply gorgeous.
The hospitality is second to none. Vasso is charming, knowledgable, helpful and unstinting with her time and help. Cristos is equally charming, welcoming us back from a hard days sightseeing with little treats, to accompany our obligatory Metaxa.
On a practical note the rooms vary, and one with access to a balcony is ideal as there isn't much outside space - you are in the old town after all. Most of the rooms have double beds, great for families, but perhaps not ideal if travelling with friends.There are computers with free internet access, which was reliable and fast, another great bonus. There is the option of a small apartment around the corner from the hotel, which is great if you want a fridge and kettle, ideal for young families. Next door, between the hotel and apartment is a small 'corner shop' which sells everything you could need, at a reasonable price, including spinach and feta pies, and meltingly delicious pastries. Again the owners are absolutely lovely, and very friendly.
I can heartily recommend the hotel. We also took the bus to Lindos, which is pretty, and the boat to Symi, which was a pleasant bruise to a lovely island - rocky, with a beautiful town of neo-classical renovated houses. Next time I go to Rhodes I will stay at the Saint Michel.
