“Be transported back in time in this beautifully renovated house.”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We booked Ilios House to get a taste of life in old town Rhodes and were not disappointed.
Clean and well-equipped and the owners very helpful and always available. Make sure you ask the taxi driver to drop you off at Akandia Gate and you will have a short walk to the property. We departed Rhodes Town by boat and the dock is a short walk away. Ilios House has a steep stairway to the bedroom so the elderly and small children may have difficulty.
A wonderful place to stay in the heart of medieval Rhodes Town where you can step back in time and walk the ancient, cobbled streets, dine on authentic Greek food at many great restaurants and visit the antiquities.

It didn't seem to be a good start when the taxi driver couldn't find the address so he dropped us in St Pantelimonas Square; however, there was a huge white teddy bear sitting on a bench to greet us! A quick scout round surrounding streets soon found the house and one of the owners, Nikolas, waiting to greet us. The name of the town gate and the instruction "immediate right then 1st left" given to us when our booking was confirmed would have helped. The house is wonderful, not quiet (traffic on cobbled street, lots of birds in nearby trees) but feels peaceful. It is very old but beautifully restored to keep the original style whilst providing the necessities for modern living. There was only one bedroom - from the photographs, it looked like two - but it was huge, lots of room for the double bed and two singles. The only wardrobe was downstairs, but I can understand why, in view of the steepness of the stairs - I wouldn't recommend them for elderly or disabled people . However, with the bathroom and wardrobe downstairs, you only need to go upstairs to bed. The house contains everything needed for a good holiday base, including an oven, microwave and everything necessary for cooking and eating meals. If you don't want to cook, there are 3 restaurants within 5 minutes walk - we tried two and they were both good. A short walk (5 mins) brings you to the bottom of the main street and there are lots of interesting shops and restaurants. We enjoyed walking through the moat (entrance round the corner from Ilios House) and on the Old Town walls where possible. The bus station is about 12 mins walk and local buses around the island are regular and on time. 4 minutes walk out through the nearest town gate and across the road there is a small but not busy sandy beach on a bay between the port where the cruise ships dock - the Cunard liner Queen Victoria came in during our stay and the Rainbow Warrior arrived the day before we left - and the ferry/freight terminal. Whilst these are close, they are interesting rather than obtrusive - see photos. We went there for a swim at least once each day. We enjoyed the lazy, restful holiday we wanted, thanks to this lovely house.

My wife and I stayed at the Ilios House in Old Rhodes for 3 days at the end of September, 2013. The location is great. The price is great. The home is very old, large and comfortable. We arrived by ferry from Marmaris, Turkey in the early evening. It is only a short walk from the ferry but I had looked at the map and the route did not seem clear and so we took a taxi. Good thing since the taxi driver had to stop and ask for directions. All was fine. Our only real concern that we had, and the reason for only 3 out of 5 rating, was that the bedroom is upstairs. There is no bathroom upstairs. Access to and from the bedroom is by way of a narrow very steep stairway. I suggest that the home would work better for younger people who never have to get up in the night to go to the bathroom.

Dear guest thank you for your review.If you check the website you will find a map with the exact location of the house.Also in my description i m writing that we are in a walking distance from the harbor ,thd taxi can take you right outside of the house ad we are in s accessible part of old town,
and also detailed directions how to find us from the airport and the harbor.Yes there is not bathroom upstairs.The stairs as all stairs need attention but they are not so steep as you are wrote,its a wooden stair.For all our future guests you can check the photos of the house.Thank you for staying with us and we hope that you will visit us again:)

Absolutely amazing house, really beautiful, with lots of nice touches. Situated close enough to everything but yet it feels like you're living with the locals. Perfect.
Maria and her husband are lovely and very easy to deal with, we couldn't have asked for more.
Would highly recommend this house to everyone.
