“Nice staff, rooms, and pool”
Reviewed 9 September 2011

Recently renovated and re-opened, this is a friendly, modern hotel in a perfect location just 3 blocks from the old town, 3 blocks from the beach, and right in the middle of the new town with many restaurants. Having a pool was a godsend on those hot Rhodes summer days. Very friendly and helpful staff.

The hotel was a great deal compared to other hotels at the time that my girlfriend and I came here, so we decided to book it. However, I'm assuming the great price was due to the hotel being so new.

The entire hotel is super trendy. The flooring, lighting, doors, chairs, everything is new and modern. Also, the location was a lot better than I thought it would be. Multiple beaches were only 5-min walks away. The Old Town was about a 15-min walk away. The number one ranked Tamam Restaurant on TA is only a 2-min walk away. And the street is cluttered with other hotels, bars, and restaurants.

I wanted to give special mention to the showers in the rooms. The shower is pretty cool in that they hid the drain very well. The water seems like it's falling under another slab of granite instead of the traditional, round drainage hole. From the bedroom, you can see the silhouette of the person showering in your bathroom, so that may or may not appeal to you depending on who you're traveling with.

I did have a couple of caveats, but they really weren't big issues for me. First is that there is air conditioning in the rooms, but it was pretty hot and humid in the hallways. Secondly, I'm not sure if this was because the hotel was so new, but the place was so calm and quiet that it was almost a little awkward. Usually, you see other guests and employees roaming about the hotel and chatting and going about their business, but there wasn't too much of that going on at this hotel. The small bar that's oddly placed right in front of the main elevator was empty for the most part. Anyways, I'm nitpicking.

Overall, the hotel was a great deal for the location, the design and cleanliness, the price in August, and the breakfast. The buffet-style breakfast is actually pretty decent with some eggs, meats, breads, yogurt, cereal, fruit, etc. Oh, and the pool is really shallow...

We stayed at the October Hotel for a week in the middle of August and were initially attracted to it by the price, and its location in the middle of the town (a beach hotel this is not, although you can get there, walking, in five minutes. The Old Town is about ten minutes in the opposite direction). On arrival we were not disappointed - it is located on a leafy street and although it can be fairly busy you enter a world of calm inside the October. The interior is modern, some might say minimalist, and certainly chic, and the rooms are the same - think wood, chrome and glass. The bed was as comfortable and any hotel bed I've ever slept in, the shower was excellent and the air conditioning was quiet and effective (note that no toiletries are provided, which you might argue is reflected in the price). Our room overlooked the street and although this was fairly noisy on occasion we slept just fine (anyone who is worried about this should specify that they want a room at the back, overlooking the pool).

Breakfast is worth mentioning - at €5 we thought it was outstanding value, and generally pretty tasty. (For anyone wanting to do their own thing, there is a mini-market across the street and any number of cafes and restaurants within short walking distance). Also worth highlighting is the attitude of the staff here - extremely friendly, helpful and positive at all times, in our experience.

We had a great time in Rhodes and this was in no small measure due to the happy experience of staying at the October, which I would recommend without hesitation or qualification.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front face the street, which can be lively. We liked that, but some might prefer to...
