On my first visit to Rhodes I did a bit of research on the Internet and came up with what has proved to be the best find ever. For me it’s all about comfortable accommodation and a friendly welcome in a picturesque setting away from what my friend and I refer to as ‘Hell’ - the hub of the tourist area on the island. So for my second visit it was a no-brainer to return to the Hotel Andreas, where we were welcomed back by the lovely Constance and David. Suffice it to say that these wonderful people have become personal friends…

Nothing is ever too much trouble. It was the first time my friend and I had returned to Greece since our youthful hitch-hiking days so this trip was both a pilgrimage and a celebration. We were given two lovely rooms (18 & 19) with an adjoining balcony that overlooks the old town and out to sea – simply spectacular. We would sit out in the evnings and gaze at the view. Our private bathrooms were a short distance away and there was piping hot water at all times.

All rooms are graced with pictures by artist Maud Gutterson and these lend a lovely touch as do the vases of fresh flowers. In each room is a small, lockable little safe/box for valuables and clean towels, new soaps etc appear as if by magic every second day - we stayed eight! At the head of the stairs nearby the rooms fridge filled with bottles of cold water plus a kettle and the wherewithal to make tea or coffee - so useful.

Breakfast is served at a time of your choice up to about 9.30 - 10 a.m. in the lovely outside area with marmalade made from fruit gathered from the orange trees above and fresh fruit collected from the local market daily. There is also a lovely veranda-like room to relax in: it looks out over the old town and has a library of books plus a friendly pub in which to enjoy a sundowner. Have a look at http://www.hotelandreas.com/ for further information.

Room tip: Room 18 or 19 have an adjoining balcony that overlooks the town and out to sea - heaven!

Imagine you are in a dream world with castles with turrets, minarets and a distant land across sparkling blue Mediterranean waters. That is your view from Hotel Andreas. The rooms are filled with light; the location is in the middle of the Old Town but on a slight hill up a side street, without noise and bustle. The accommodations are clean and comfortable – my room had a deck and a view of minarets, the sea and the hills of Turkey. And the breakfast was delicious – Greek yogurt with fruit and fresh bread, a cup of strong coffee, while watching the sun rise over the walled city. Hotel Andreas transformed Rhodes into a wonderland.

We loved the Hotel Andreas. I actually do not usually write these reviews -- the occasional Expedia review -- and in fact this is my first TripAdvisor review after years of using it, but I had such a great stay at the Andreas that a review is definitely in order. First, our hosts – Constance and David were welcoming, friendly and really helpful. That’s one of the things that made the stay special – both Constance and David were very generous with their time explaining things to us about Rhodes and sharing their insider tips on restaurants and places to go. The seafood place nearby they recommended was superb. As to the hotel itself, we had a room that slept three (myself and two kids) and that can be hard to find in Europe – so often it is necessary to book separate rooms. The bathroom was simple but perfectly fine – it certainly was more than adequate. The room was very clean and well-presented. This is a historic Ottoman era building so it has its quirks – but that is what makes it so different and appealing. When I go to a place like Rhodes I am not looking for the Holiday Inn. The free wifi is a plus and works fine – it’s a good connection. There was a little common seating area just outside the room shared by several rooms where we could make ourselves some tea – a nice touch. The breakfast terrace is simply extraordinary – it is really an amazing view from up there. A pleasant breeze blows though – it’s just delightful. There’s a second guest area down below – a spacious private courtyard for the guests to use and relax in. I say all this because it is rare that a hotel in this price range has such generous common areas. We liked the location a lot – Rhodes can be pretty touristy and it was good being just a bit away from the tourist “tat” – yet we were close enough to most everything. (One tip -- if you can, try to make it to the market near the hotel just outside the wall but caution – it is not on every day – Constance can tell you the day. It’s almost all locals.) So five stars – even with a few imperfections, it was just such a pleasant experience staying there with these gracious hosts, the view is unbeatable and it is very good value-for-money. The little imperfections are tolerable and more than outweighed by its historic character, charm and uniqueness. We will be back.

There are lots of good things about this hotel. Firstly the owners are helpful and informative - only too happy to help with taxi bookings etc which is a real asset. The place is spotlessly clean. Public areas are lovely - the little bar and breakfast terrace overlooking the port; and the garden which gets the afternoon sun are great places to sit, read, contemplate. And in the cool interior of the building there is a communal area where tea and coffee and refrigerated water are available free of charge. The Ottoman character of the house is reflected in some of the soft furnishings, tiles and pictures - although this house has not been 'restored' to its former Ottoman glory.

Breakfast is good. Fresh bread, white and rustic brown - fresh fruit - boiled eggs - yogurt and honey - homemade preserves - good coffee on tap - and fresh feta and olives. All served up with that wonderful view.

However ..... depending on what you want from your room, you may find that there are lots of not great things about this hotel too. All rooms differ slightly, so my review is for ROOM 20 and ROOM 17. The facilities in these rooms are basic and just OK. In both rooms we could feel dampness in the bed and in the towels. Furniture is very tired and in need of updating. It goes with the nature of an old building that bathrooms are odd shapes and not entirely user friendly - like the tiny hand basin in 20 ... if you want to splash your face, you either have to aim in that general direction or bend to the basin and hit your head on a badly positioned glass shelf. Lights not working. Wobbly plug sockets not quite attached to wall. Sink plugs not working and no bath mats provided which scuppers the eco message about saving water/towels.... we had to sacrifice our precious towels to make the bathroom floor safe after a shower.............etc etc.
In 17, delightful though the mezzanine bed space is, neither of us could stand up in it ( I'm 5"1 ). Shower wets toilet, nowhere to put toiletries except a set of tiny shelves that are unusable as they are not level..........

None of these things are the end of the world, and are fine if your room is not a major component of your enjoyment. Of course other rooms may be less quirky. All things considered, I think comparable breakfast and public areas could be found in hotels with better room facilities, so I have to be honest and say - it is just about average.

Room tip: 20 is small. It gets noise from the communal areas, and noise from room above. Windows look straight down into breakfast terrace. Curtains don't cover windows. 17 mezzanine ceiling really low. Low balcony which could be dangerous if disorientated during night. Small bathroom window opens directly onto public tea/coffee area..........
