Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 October 2011

we are a mature couple that just spent a week at the nafsika hotel. It is well located and is family run. this is a well located hotel and only 10-15 minutes from both the old town and the acropolis and only 50 meters from the beach. It is very clean and has a continental+ breakfast every morning. The husband and wife owners have a grat knowledge of the area and will do everything to make your stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: rooms on back side face ocean and are quieter. need to be above 3rd floor for best views.

Loved this hotel. Family run by a nice, friendly couple ! We got to know about it from a good greek friend (related to them) and we were SO HAPPY they had room for us!
Nice price too ;)
Sea-view from our balcony and the wind from the sea was good to feel on the hottest days :) - Happy that the bathroom had a showercabinet (luckily not bathtub, which is trouble since I have a semi-paralyzed leg) The room was cleaned every day by friendly, smiling staff.
Nice breakfast included, Free Wi-Fi (we always bring our Mac) - TV (also Engl and German channels)
Easy to walk to the city-center, also for me - having to use a crutch for walking outdoor (with stops here and there). Grill and restaurant with nice food very close, so we didnt have to go far if we didnt want to. Small supermarket also close.
Just local traffic in the street, - quiet to be so central in a city.
Middle-aged Norwegian couple stayed here in Sept 2011.

The room was clean, the bathroom new and well equipped. The location was great - just 15 minutes from the centre of old town by walking. We had problems getting a taxi to the ferry port due to a strike and the lovely gentleman at the desk took us in his own car. For this alone Nasfika is good value - we would not have received this service at other pricey hotels.

Clean and tidy and very welcoming, we stayed 3 nights just to explore Rhodes Town. A little late night/early morning noise from revellers a couple of streets away but no more than you would expect from a city centre hotel. A short stroll into the main shopping area and then on into Old Town. Breakfast was simple but perfectly adequate. All in all very good value for money for anyone travelling on a budget.

Room Tip: Partial sea view from balcony of 501

I have been coming to this hotel since 1997, sometimes as a solo traveller and sometimes with friends, and it is always a joy to stay here.
I have seen many changes to the hotel. The owners, Nancy and Theo, are always striving to improve the facilities, but there cannot be any improvement on the warmth and friendliness which I always receive.
I have been prompted to write this review in defence of the cleanliness of this hotel.
Every day the rooms are cleaned, fresh towels each day and the bedding changed most days, and the balcony is always lovely and clean and a pleasure to sit on.
As for the traffic noise, yes there is some, but close the patio doors and have the air con on.......I don't have a problem with that!!
The breakfast is advertised as continental, which it is, but always there is something extra to eat such as sausages and fried eggs, so again the owners go the extra mile.
I love this little hotel and can only give it 10 out of 10 for location, friendliness and cleanliness.

I organized a large party of 15 people for a wedding on the island recently. Some older and younger couples interested in getting up to the Old Town or lazing on the beach and some nieces and nephews keener on the nightlife, so the location was unbelievable, especially considering how it is quietly tucked away from the nearby livliness.

The rooms were kept really clean and were bright, fresh and everyone had air-con which came in very handy coping with the little heat-wave there when we stayed.

I shopped around for a deal and settled on The Nafsika mainly due to that, but everyone agreed we would have gladly paid a lot more for all I've mentioned and the level of service we received from the friendly owners who run the place.

If any of us return to Rhodes for a holiday one day we also all agreed we would only stay in one place!

We reserved the hotel via the travel agency and knew it was only two star hotel. But still we were shocked. We're not very picky but definitely require cleanliness. This is what Hotel Nafsika (or sometimes called Nausika) does not offer. We got the worst possible room I guess. It was at the corner of the hotel with view to the street and grocery's. The street is extremely loud cause many use the scooters and often pass by during any time of day or night. So you don't get much sleep. The mattresses were hard and made noises - no double-bed just two beds put together. The bathroom was probably the worst I've ever seen. Shabby and no shower corner so when you took shower the water was all around the floor which makes it damp and the water get very slowly to the duct. The cleaning ladies did the least to keep the hotel clean. I found huge dust fluffs in front of the balcony windows and dirt in the fridge or on the table :-( The breakfast was all the time the same with very little to choose, more of a continental style but very poor.
Despite the hotel, we had a great time in Rhodes and esp. Rhodes town. For those who want the best of the Rhodes island should go to the city. The best location is in the nothern top of the island where the calm Mediterranean sea meets the wild waves of Aegean sea. So you can choose up to your mood if you want to relax or have fun in the waves. The medieval part of the Rhodes town is wonderful as well as the port. Or the view from the hill above the town where the ruins of ancient Greek monuments could be found is just breathtaking. The only thing I found disturbing was the cleanliness at the front beach. There were thousands of cigarette ends. Lindos is also worth visiting with its delightful beaches and typical Greek tiny streets and ruins of a castle at the top. The beach of Anthony Queen is wonderful, it's close to Kolymbia. There are many things to see in this beautiful island. But I would never ever recommend this hotel to anyone.
