I recently stayed at Mitsis la Vita Hotel. Overall it is an excellent choice due to the quality of services they provide and its location. Rooms have been recently renovated and are always kept clean by the staff. Breakfast is served in the hotel. Lunch and Dinner are served at “The Mitsis Grand Hotel (a few yards away) which is a 5* . We were also allowed to use its facilities which make it a great value for money.
Congratulations to all the staff especially the ladies in the reception as well as all the assistants in both hotels and especially many Congratulations to the Chief Cook at the Grand Hotel for providing such quality meals on a daily basis

Room tip: Ask for a sea view room.

I recently stayed in the La Vita Beach Hotel while traveling with a large group of friends in August. On a long summer trip that spanned several Greek islands (and several hotels), the La Vita hotel was by far our favorite of them all. You couldn't ask for a better location: beaches footsteps from the hotel, the Old Town (i.e. the Game of Thrones type castle) is close walking distance, plenty of restaurants, bars, taverns in close proximity as well as a casino if you’re feeling lucky. The hotel’s service was absolutely perfect! Any and all island logistic questions were promptly and professionally answered by the hotel’s fine staff. The manager, front desk staff, et al. went above and beyond what we expected. The rooms were all extremely clean with top of the line amenities (i.e. fancy soaps ) & ample towels, beddings...etc…etc…provided. There’s a nice bar in the lobby with a wide open space to slip a cocktail and relax. In short, my entire group was very happy with our stay at the La Vita Beach Hotel and we look forward to staying there again during our next Rhodes trip.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days during August 2013. The rooms and bathrooms are large and I was pleasantly surprised to find Olivia products in the bathroom. The manager and front desk staff of the hotel went out of her way to make sure we had every need taken care of. The breakfast was also of very good quality, and the monasterial/medieval hall where breakfast was served was really interesting and fit with the Rhodes architecture. The lobby area, inside and outside of the hotel, was great in that at night time we sat there for cocktails and was quite relaxing. I have to say that the location is super convenient, one block away from the beach, and there are a number of cafes and shops (mostly touristy) which sell anything one might need. Also, I have to say that the staff was quick in fixing things--when I arrived a lightbulb wasn't working and the remote control of the tv was nowhere to be found--Dina the maid personally came and immediately changed the lightbulb and procured me with a new remote. All in all, this hotel was great value for money and my stay here was very pleasant and non-stressful--just what a vacation hotel needs to be.

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.

Positives:
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.

Some negatives:
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.

This is a hotel which has gone for style over substance. It's upgraded the rooms so they look nice but hasn't concentrated on the basics, which are much more important. For example the air conditioning in the room is hopeless. The TV didn't work, there was no plug for the bath tub and the sound proofing was very bad - you could every noise in the next room. One thing which really bothered me was the floor to ceiling window which was permanently wide open on the stairs on the 7th floor. A death trap!

But the biggest problem was that, having paid for half board, we only used it on the first night. Breakfast is fine, you eat in the La Vita, but the evening meal is in the sister hotel next door. There are far, far too many people all trying to eat in one dining room. It's a big queue to get in and once you do it's like bedlam. Only one food station for hundreds of people so the queues are terrible. And the pushing and jostling around your table. By far the worst I've seen in a buffet. Would hate to think I'd paid to stay in the Mitsis Grand and was eating there every night! Luckily we were only there another 2 nights so cut our losses and ate out. The receptionist at the La Vita was very dismissive when I told her how bad it was.

The good thing is the position - across the road from the beach. It's pebbly so you might want to buy little rubber shoes and it has a good sea breeze which we liked. Lounger and parasol hire is 8 euros a day. It's a ten minute pleasant walk into the old town.

All in all, we were pleased we'd only booked a few days here - we much preferred the second part of our holiday at the Pefkos Filoxenia (see separate review). The contrast in service and attention to detail of the sort that really makes a holiday was enormous!
