“Warm and cozy room in the hearth of old Rhodes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Very well situated, Apollo Guesthouse is close to all we needed, restaurants, museums, old port... Everything is easy walking distance. The rooms are clean and and well decorated. The view of the surronding wall is beatiful. We had delicious breakfasts in the charming flowered courtyard. The host are very nice and welcoming. We had a very nice journey in Rhodes.

Seems like I have some free time on my hands as I brought my laptop on this trip for the first time and now I am posting review after review of the wonderful hotels that I have had the special priveliedge to experience. And now I am writing again of another amazing guest experience in a fabulous Greecian hotel. Apollo himself would be glad to spend a few nights here with my room perched above the fray in the most ancient part of Rhodes old city. I slept with my window opened wide each night (and let's be honest during the day too...) with the most amazing view over the ancient city and out to the ocean itself. Even the distant view of enormous and impossibly huge cruise ships parked in the bay added to the magical experience.

This guest house is a smart option because of its budget price, excellent management, and fabulous location - away from the t shirt shops in the quiet and authentically real residential quarter of the old city. Yet a quick stroll down the hill and you're in the thick of it. I was amazed by the total silence at night. And last, but not least, even thought the room is small (they're all small in Rhodes) it had a normal size bathroom - thank you.

This small and intimate guesthouse is centrally located, which makes it very convenient for exploring the old town of Rhodes with no need for extra transport. One can walk to the main ports if luggage is not too heavy. Still, it is away from the bustle, so ideal if you want to take a break from sightseeing. It has got a little garden, which was fresher than the rest of town. The two tenants are very nice and helpful. Our room was not very large but definitely enough for two people. The place is cosy and very clean. We would go back here if back to Rhodes.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Apollo Guesthouse for 3 nights in August 2013. We stayed in the Artemis room which overlooked the beautiful courtyard and old town. The rooms were very clean and homely with a private bathroom. The guesthouse was quaint and traditional.

Personally, we found this to be a great location in the Old town as it was near some excellent cafes/bars and restaurants such as Mandala.

The owners were very friendly and happy to recommend restaurants and sights of interest. I echo the thoughts of other travellers and Ikuo provided a lovely breakfast every morning including tea/coffee, cornflakes, muesli, fresh fruit and greek yoghurt in the very scenic courtyard.

Much recommended as it is much more personal and beautiful than a regular hotel!

We were travelling as 3 couples. We each had our own room with a private bathroom. Each couple commented that this guesthouse exceeded our expectations.
Ikuo was very friendly and helpful with recommending restaurants and sites to see. Our privacy was respected but if we had any questions he was more than happy to help us.
Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and was served in the beautiful courtyard.
The location was ideal in Old Town and it was a short walk to many restaurants and shops.
We all would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Each of our 3 rooms was unique. We enjoyed the Apollo, Artemis and Zeus rooms.

My friend and I stayed for 4 days at this lovely Guesthouse. overall a great experience. A little hard to find, but totally worth it. Ikuo, the owner, treated us especially well, had all possible information that you could possibly need on hand. Was available for any question or concern. Breakfasts were definitely a highlight. The patio and the view from the room were also great.
Totally reccommendable.
