Having read other travellers' reviews of this small hotel in the centre of the Old Town of Rhodes, I was expecting something quirky and different especially when the host has been called 'a colourful character' but I think we must have experienced an alternative reality to everybody else. We had booked for three nights and had asked for the room at the top of the house with the roof terrace, which in the heat of the summer might be a bonus; in November it was a huge mistake. The hotel was empty apart from us (the owner no-where to be seen) and there was no heating at all. The wind howled through the badly fitting windows and with only a thin blanket on the twin beds we spent the night absolutely freezing. The bathroom was a disgrace, filthy dirty and cockroaches everywhere. Breakfast had been promised in an email but on arrival we were told that not even coffee was available and we had to go to a cafe round the corner. The highlight of our curtailed, one-night stay was that after a sleepless night I was awake to see the most spectacular sunrise through one of the many bedroom windows!
