“Athena”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

We stayed here in the self-catering part of the hotel. The season hadn't really begun so it was very quiet. We had a few hiccups but the handyman came very quickly and rectified the problems.Receptionist obviously didn't want to be there, we were mostly greeted with a curt nod.The pool was small and despite it being early season we failed to get a bed in the sun any day.Luckily we didn't want to cook in our room as the facilities were pretty basic and the half size fridge was rather grubby. All in all it served it's purpose and I've stayed in worse hotels!

Location was good, although staff were very rude, unfriendly and unhelpful, even speaking greek to them made no difference. It was ok accomodation, but I was happy to be out of there after 3 long nights!

We were 5 girls in age of 18,19 from Norway, staying at Athena hotel. It was sheep and near the nightlife and beach. Our room was fine, ofc not the best, but for the price and how little we staid in the room it was good. The nightlife was just around the corner, perfect if you forgot something in your room, need more money og somthing. Just walk 2 min, and you are there ! Good resturants around the hotel, and good take away pizza just 1 min from the hotel :-) If you like swedish people, rhodos city is perfect, because there are like more swedish then greeks, I promise. And 90% of them work at the clubs, resturant and activities.. So be ready to have 100 swedish guys or girls after you, selling tickets to stuff. Some of them are very fun !!! we went to everything. Pool party was the most boring, dont buy those tickets. It is not tipical movie pool party. Everybody are just sitting on the grass, having one drink free, and boring , dry food. We where there for like 30 min, then left. dont waste money on this. But something was fun, but dont remember what they called it, but one night you went from bar to bar , got one shot on each bar for free. Another night there where free drink from 9-12, THAT WAS NIIICE ! recomende it !! :-D but now back to Athena ::: Many teenagers on the hotel, i promise you get to know you neighbour, because on the balcony it is PARTYYYY :-) :-) But dont bee too loaud on the evening, dont want to be troin out .....

Room Tip: if you like to party, choose a room there you can "see" the ocean. Actually you cant see t...

I have stayed 7 times at this hotel, always admired its no frills but clean friendly place, but on this return after 2 years noticed its has lost its sparkle for me, although there was maids coming in daily and changing the towels and making the beds no floor washing was done, there were stains on curtaining and carpets, they was breakfast available but it did"nt look very nice and no vierity, in the room the electric plug socket was loose i told reception but nothing got done, Infairness all the staff were most helpful and friendly some which i have known for years, i will never stay at this hotel again, but will return some times to rhodes town itself.

Room Tip: no sea views from this hotel but all rooms have lovely outlooks on to the bright lighted street of r...

This hotel is in a great location right across the streeet from the beach, resturants and grocery store but that's all it's got going for it. The day staff were okay but there is a guy who worked at the desk at night who was very helpful and knowledgeable about the island and wanted to tell guests all about it.
Breakfast was good buffet style.
The rooms were alright. Nothing fancy and you could hear your neighbor through the thin walls. If you want a cheap stay this is it. But other wise I would choose another hotel as there are many in the same location.

Room Tip: When booking ask for a ocean view room they maybe better then back of the hotel.

I had an insect problem in my room - silver tails crawling out of the wardrobe and a green cockroach on the bed (I didn't know green cockroaches existed until this hotel and google). Also I always clean the toilet seat with a wipe at every hotel and this one left the wipe with a brownish tinge.
The hotel is located about 2 minutes walk to the beach - but on the windy side. It is about 15 minutes walk to the nicer beachside (Elli beach) and to Old town. But close to bar street (which was not such a positive in my mind as I found the bars in old town much nicer).
The staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to help.
Wifi and breakfast are not included.
Overall, cheap, decent hotel. They just need to be cleaner.
