We stayed three nights in this hotel which did not have any views and found its location difficult to fiind and far from the old city.One has to walk for twenty minutes to reach the Old Town as the buses are not easy to find.The hotel is very neat and clean and the staff helpful. The nice bakery is just around the corner and there are a few minimarkets nearby.

Room Tip: Coose a room with a view of the Mediterranean garden otherwise there are views of many solr heaters...

We spent 2 nights at Philoxenia hotel in Rhodes town. It is a nice, clean and frendly place. The receptionists were very helpful giving maps and tips, and we had a litlle balcony looking to a green mediteranean garden.

From here it is about 25mn walk to the old town, not so easy to find the first time. But if you want to have a nice hotel for a good price, in a "real" Greek suburb, and like to have big nice walks, it is a good option.

Note also that on the way to the center, you will pass a little restaurant with only local people where you will pay only 10 euros per person for a huge number of different plates. Nice to try once to get a real local experience.

Room Tip: A view on the back garden is for sure very nice

Had a lovely time here! The apartments were kept very clean and the beds were really comfy. The kitchen area was small but fine for lunches and breakfasts. Our balcony area was nice overlooking the front courtyard and we were never disturbed by the other apartments next to us. It's about a 15-20 min walk into town which is worthwhile for all the restaurants and bars there. Overall very happy as we parked our car right outside every day and had the perfect location for both touristy and local Rhodes!

The hotel is located in a quiet, nice neighborhood in Rhodes. It is either a 20 minute walk to the Old Town, or a 5 euro taxi. There are also frequent buses for 1 euro into the city. The staff was extremely helpful with ideas of what to do, tours, guides, beaches. Hotel was clean, minimalist but with a small fridge and stovetop for cooking if so desired.

This is a great place to stay if you prefer to be in a residential area, not in the big hotel areas. A family business with wonderful staff, friendly, helpful. They gave us great restaurant recommendations, a map with nearby mini-marts and eateries. They also arranged a rental car for a day trip with car delivered to the hotel. It's 20 minutes by foot to the St. Athanasius Gate.

Room Tip: We stayed in the one-room apartment with kitchenette in the garden area. There's a small table...

We stayed in the "Backyard Apartment" for three nights in June. The prices were extremely good. We enjoyed talking to Antonis. He helped us with renting a car, getting a taxi and recommended great places nearby and in the Old Town to eat. I would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: We were glad not to be at a huge hotel near the beach, but if that is what you want this is not for...
