The hotel is in the old town so you can walk to all the sights int eh old town. Basic rooms but clean and with a small kitchen ( fridge two plate cooker and a sink )
The staff are friendly and helpful and the food on the rooftop is great.
A great place if you want to be in the old town.

Room tip: Sorry not sure what one to ask for

We stayed 2 nights at Minos Pension in the old town and we were pleasantly surprised as a pension was not on our list before. A warm and genuine welcome, clean and fresh room and helpful owner made it special. The room had a cook-top, kettle and clean, compact bathroom/toilet. Special care was taken with our laundry. Friendly faces everywhere. Located within the city walls meant we carried our packs out onto the outside roads to get a taxi on check out but that was made up for by the thrill of history and winding narrow streets. Rooftop garden has a terrific view and breakfast was good. Coffee is above average for Rhodes. Bar service was a little bit lack lustre but this was not a big issue. Overall, I recommend to fellow travellers for that good balance between quality and price.

Room tip: All rooms look good.

We are a couple in our late 60's who preferred to stay in the Old Town and explore the many narrow lane ways and have an 'authentic' experience. We chose to stay at Minos which from its rooftop bar/cafe , offers the most panoramic views over Old Rhodes Town.
The rooms can be compact but we upgraded to a suite to enjoy extra space. Our room was serviced daily and linen was changed every second day. We appreciated he fact that there was a fridge. double hot plate, crockery and cutlery which could allow for self catering , we however preferred to eat out.
The hosts make it a five star experience and you feel part of a family of which we met four generations including 97 year old patriarch . You feel welcome from the time you arrive and nothing was a bother. They were able to help with laundry, taxi hiring, places to visit etc. Meals can be purchased if you find it too hard to leave the rooftop views.
An important aspect of Minos was that it is accessible by taxi for arrival and departure , especially for departures back to Athens by plane which normally leaves at 6.40 am.
Minos has free WiFi as have most areas in Old Rhodes.
If you are travelling to Rhodes , experience the Old Town for accommodation rather than the resorts which are too far out and require transport to access Old Town Rhodes which is the main reason one should have to go to Rhodes.
Don't forget to visit the museums as they are very interesting and also 'bargain when shopping!

Room tip: If you are a couple who needs space, the cheaper rooms are very small. Larger rooms are more spacious and have basic self catering but it's better to eat out and experience Greek cuisine. As Minos is not in centre of town , all rooms are quiet.

We stumbled on Minos on one of our forays round the streets of Rhodes and came back nearly every day. The rooftop bar is the perfect chill-out spot in Rhodes town, Buy a Greek coffee ( a double for 2.50) or a strawberry mojito in the eveing, sit on one of the sofas and admire the view, enjoy the breeze, watch the cruise ships and ferries coming in or wait for the glorious sunset over the Old Town.

We didnt stay here, but would definitely consider it if we return to Rhodes.

We stayed in the Minos Pension in February and were the only guests in the facility. The owner and his wife were in the middle of preparing for their son's upcoming wedding and understandably were somewhat indifferent to our needs.

Be sure that you call ahead upon your arrival in Rhodes, either by air or at the ferry port, to make sure someone will be available at the hotel to meet you where the taxi driver drops you...better yet, have the taxi driver call them to get directions. The hotel is hard to find the first go round.

A good place and we probably will stay there again.

Room tip: Some have a kitchen some apparently don't. The upper level rooms certainly must have a view of the old city and the port.
