“friendly, clean, minimalist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2010

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was small but clean, the bathroom was very small with a door likely to catch your fingers if you weren't careful. Our balcony was small but the ones with a sea view looked to be very good (none available when we booked). Breakfast is boring but perhaps not a surprise given the price and anyway there are plenty of places to eat nearby. The bar does overlook the sea and is very pleasant with good service. The beach is very close and though generally windier than Elli beach has more room and has a wonderful view of Turkey. The hotel's location to restaurants and the old city is good. Pay for internet available

We wanted to try citylife of rhodes, and i guess we found the heart of the citylife when we booked Hotel Africa. The room was ok sized, with a very big balcony. It was not very private because the fence between the balconys was 60cm high. Our room didnt have any AC so we had to sleep with the door open, and it was very noisy since the street is close. Breakfast was only tried once, it was better to spend some few euro to get a english breakfast just around the corner.

The staff was ok, the bartender was very nice and we learned him some recipies of good norwegian drinks - he gave us happy hour all night long.

The best with this hotel is ofcourse the location. We just had to walk 5-6 minutes to get to the old city, good resturants and bars just few metres away. Same with beach, 100 metres away. We had a rental car, and found it difficult to find a parkingplace nearby the hotel - but its ok to walk sometimes too :-)

Hotel Africa is located around 150metres from the big partystreet, so its perfect for young people who want to party, swim and live cheap. Not recommended for romantic couples or families.

We were shocked at first sight: Very old, sheets were incredibly thin, tile in bathroom was broken, shower was just a shower curtain in the corner: you could not avoid flooding the whole tiny bathroom. However! -- the room was actually very clean, sheets were changed every day, towels were nice and thick. I loved the balcony, it had a great light for reading in the evening, you could look down on the street action. The location of the hotel is excellent, you can walk to Old Town, and you are beside the beach. The staff were very nice and friendly. Breakfast was adequate. I heard that some rooms have bathtubs with showers: if I could get one of those, I would actually consider staying again!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one week in August. We had a great time! No the room was not updated but it was comfortable and large with a large balcony. The people working at the front desk were wonderful and extremely helpful. Car rental, bakery/convenience store, and laundry service were right outside the hotel and it is near the beach and 10 mins from Old Town. If you come to Rhodes to spend your time in a hotel room then Hotel Africa is probably not the place for you. If you come to Rhodes to spend your time exploring the island, relaxing on the fantastic beaches, shopping in the Old Town, and only need a clean place to rest in between all of these activities, then the Hotel Africa is perfect!

We stayed at Hotel Africa for 3 nights. The front desk service and the location was the only good thing. 10 min walk to old town and close to beach. The hotel room was outdated, bed were hard as a rock, the sheet were not cleaned, noisy hall ways, bathroom was small including the shower, the breakfast had hardly no variety and it was served only between 7:30am - 9:30am. The hotel rooms need a total update.. The lobby and bar was ok.
