First of all - this is a city hotel, mainly useful for the sightseeing of the Rhodes City (and the Old Town) or as the starting point for the tour around the island. This hotel is no holiday resort with all attractions for kids on the sandy beach. If you are looking for that you should go to Faliraki or Kolymbia.
We had a nice room on the street side (side street, not the beach promenade) with a big bathroom. Hotel´s location is 50m from the west beach (pebbles, windy, not for not swimmers or children) but if you go 5min to the east you are on the beatuful sandy (unfortunately also very crowdy) Elli Beach (in front of the Casino Rhodes). Some 100m from the hotel are bar streets with supermarkets, bars, restaurants, shops, fast food etc. but it is not noisy in the hotel. To the Old Town you have to go only 10-15min.
The furniture in the room is nice and modern athough not new.
Only the breakfast (buffet) is in the hotel. Dinners are in 5* Mitsis Grand (some 150m) if you have a HB option. Breakfasts are good, every day the same but a great variety.
Dinners in 5* Grand are splendid.
The is no pool in the hotel but you can use all the facilities of Grand (3 pools). And who needs pools if you have a great sea?
In the room there is AC, TV, a safe (separately cost), a fridge. In the bath is a bathtub, hair dryer. AC was working noiseless and efficient.
The room was separated from any noise through the walls or from the corridor (or we were lucke not to have noisy neighbors).
Beds were good and the sleeping quality too.
Towels were changed at least every second day or if you let it on the floor.
The room was cleaned daily.
The check-in and check-out was very fast and without any officialism, the reception ladies were very nice and helpful.
There is a small elevator for only 3 persons, without ventilation, very hot inside. Only one, so some people went on the stairs instead to wait for it. There are 7 levels, but the elevator goes only to the 6th.
In the bath there is no ventilation at all, you shall keep the door to the bath open for the air circulation or there will be immediately a water condensation on the mirror and the air sticky. It stunk from the gully on the floor like hell and on the next day the gully was covered with a foil.
There is no plug for the bathtub (probably in order to move the guests to take a shower only and so spare water).
There was no balcony in our room (there are only handful rooms with a balcony). Keep in mind the hotel is on the west side of the island, very windy, so you could not enjoy the balcony even if you had one.
The wind blowing against the closed windows was sometime very noisy.
The rooms should be a little bit renowated or maintained - one plug hang from the wall, AC covering was partly damaged, TV had not the best signal, remote controllers did not work properly (poor batteries) but you shall simply go to the reception and they will fix it.
There is only 1 German channel (Eurosport) und 1 Greek channel with old English films (original version), the rest is only Greek.
The fridge could have a better performance.
The tables in the breakfast room were cleared not fast enough and sometime there was no place to have a sit if there were many guests or the tables were not prepared.
The rooms were not cleaned accurate enough, there was sometime some sand brought by our shoes on the day before.
Generally we enjoyed our stay there, but needed there only to sleep and to have a breakfast.
