This is an aparthotel, only a couple of minutes from the excellent beach, and surrounded by the many bars, restaurants and shops of the new town.
We had an apartment, so there was a very small kitchen area with kettle, electric hobs and fridge. However, it was pretty greasy and the size makes it OK for making a salad or sandwiches, but not much else. There was enough cutlery and crockery for the two of us.
The air conditioning was not on for 24 hours during our stay, but thankfully we didn't need it as Rhodes in October is a little milder than the height of summer. Note that you can't have it on if you are out of the room as you have to put your room key in the slot to get electricity.
The bed was comfy enough, and the bathroom had lots of towels and hot water. There was a good size balcony with table and chairs.
There is a swimming pool which is a decent size, and a good bar in the hotel, too. But such is the choice of food and drink nearby, we rarely used it.
The location is very good, but we were above the main entrance, facing the nightlife and you do get some noise at night. But that's the downside of having lots to do close to you!
Rhodes Town is a very good resort, and this was a decent place to stay.
