Lydia Hotel
Ranked #54 of 126 Hotels in Rhodes Town
Reviewed 15 March 2013

A good central location in a prosperous quarter. The beach, shops, harbours and the old town are all just minutes away and the hotel's very inviting and roomy receptions areas can be accessed easily from back and front of the hotel. The bedrooms are fairly standard — mine had a balcony with an unlovely view — but very clean and well-equipped with spare pillows and blankets and spotless bathroom. The water could do with being a few degrees hotter. The mattress was a little on the hard side, but I slept well, and the building and environs were quiet at night.

Breakfast was ample with everything known to man except the things I desire most in the morning — strong hot coffee, and fresh fruit. This would make all the difference. I should say in the hotel's defence that tinned as well as dried fruit was on offer in abundance including dried star fruit, dried kiwi, and other novelties I enjoyed trying. Everything else was very good — plenty of bacon, eggs, cheese, various varieties of bread, marble cake, even λουκούμι (Turkish delight).

The best thing about the Lydia hotel is the lobby. It makes you believe you actualy are in a nice hotel. The rooms however are very old and outdated. The bathroom ceiling was covered in mould. Also interesting, the lamp that was in our room could not be turned on because it couldn't be plugged in anywhere. The was only one electricity outlet in the entire room!
Also the staff act very hautain, like this was some posh hotel.
Breakfast ends at 9:30 which is just ridiculous. And of course the breakfast area is completely crowded because of this.
I would not recommand this hotel, there are better options in Rhodos.

The Lydia was re-vamped recently, a couple of years back, though it kept the rather dark brown design it certainly improved its breakfasts and rooms. I much prefer the bar at the Plaza around the corner but the Lydia is cheaper to stay at and the staff are just as welcoming, if not more so. The rooms are comfortable and have all you need. When my partner and I stayed there and he had a broken leg they went out of their way to look after him, even helping him get his breakfast when I wasn't there and putting us in a room near the lift; they still remember us. It's usually a quiet place, not on a busy street and is always clean and friendly.

The hotel seems newly renovated. It is clean and decent in room quality. Not all rooms have street view so ask the reception in advance if you are concerned. If you don't have a car, you can rely on this hotel to walk the city centre. The personnel is ok.

We stayed in the Hotel Lydia for 2 nights as the ferry schedules had changed and we had to leave earlier than expected from the island we were staying on. We booked the day before through Booking.com and paid a total of 90 euros for 2 nights for 2 including breakfast. The room was well appointed and clean. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were helpful and polite. The hotel is a 5 min walk from the old town. We will definately stay here again and would recommend it.

Stayed here overnight before catching a ferry to Leros. The room was modern, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was very modern and bright. This is an ideal hotel if you are looking for a stopover. Within walking distance of ferry port and strolling distance of the old town.
