We booked this hotel after other hotel recommendations given to us were booked out. We went on recommendations found on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. This hotel is a good budget priced hotel.
Our room was a good size and clean with a balcony overlooking the main street. The hotel is very centrally located with many restaurants in the area. It is a short, comfortable walk to the port area and The Old Town.
Our room included breakfast, which was buffet style in a breakfast area downstairs and very good . We spent 6 weeks in Italy, Greece and Turkey and this was the cheapest accomodation we had and was excellent compared to other places we stayed in which were alot more expensive and not as clean or friendly.
All the reception people were very helpful and cheery. It was no problem to ask to borrow an iron or for travel advice.
The only problem we had with our room was that it was noisy at night with people speeding up and down the streets and going silly on their loud motor bikes. We will definitely stay here again but maybe take some ear plugs!!

  • Liked — Value for money. central location
  • Disliked — Noisy streets at night.

We stayed 6 nights in this hotel during the last week of June 2007. We were extremely pleased by this hotel. For 40 eur/night it was an absolute bargain - though I suppose peak season prices will be higher.

The room was OK size, with tv, fridge, airco, balcony. The room and entire hotel were clean, staff friendly. The room was cleaned every day, towels changed almost every day.

Breakfast was very nice, many options in bread, cheese, omelettes, muesli varieties, yoghurt, ...

My only complaint was about noise - I'm unusually sensitive to noise when I try to fall asleep. There was some street noise (scooters...) and also the fridge and the airco unit were noisy. Nothing excessive, my girlfriend was not bothered. After 1 bad night, I bought some earplugs and the problem was solved.

This hotel is well situated, near the north tip of the island, at the crossing of Iroon Politechniou and Georgiou Papanikolaou. Close to the beaches (but just too far for sea view), and about 15-20 minutes walking to the old town. We also enjoyed the cocktail bar at the ground level, which had "happy hour" for cocktails from 7 till 10pm. Another bargain ;-)

Recommended!

Other places we'd recommend in Rhodes:

- The old town! We went back several times, it's just so nice to walk around. Also there is a nice garden just inside the outer wall, that goes all around. Great place for a walk or a bicycle ride.

- Romios Restaurant/Tavern, in the old town (Sofokleous 15): away from the noisy squares, great athmosphere, wonderful and large "Chef salad" (named Romios salad).

- the Finnish bakery on Charitou Square. Excellent for a healthy quick snack, or a piece of pie.

- Margaritis Car/Moto/bicycle rental (Kazouli 23). Best value we found for bikes (€3/day) and small cars (€30/day; €50/2d Fiat Panda), and just around the corner from the hotel.

- Pita Gyros restaurant on Mandilara Str (close to crossing with Kleopouli)

- There's a very nice panoramic view of the North-East coastline, from the hill near the crossing of Pindou and Voriou Ipirou, on the way towards the Ancient Stadium / Acropolis.

We found some reviewers recommending the Red restaurant on Papanikolaou. We visited (staying at the City Center gives you a coupon for a glass of Champagne each). It's fancy, up-class, and that's reflected in the price. Good but not exceptional.
