It is relatively easy to find if you know your way around or you google a little bit before.
If you rent a car/bike you have a free parking on the Sun.
Even for fit people it is not ideal location, you will need some transportation or by foot it is about 20 min walk to the entrance of the old town of Rhodes.
And be aware on the road there a lot of drunk people who rented some transportation and they don't know how to drive and they act like maniacs on the road. If you saw some Road Rage videos on the internet, on Rhodes it is 10x worse. They don't stop for anything or anyone. They even drive through the old town and pedestrian zone with full speed.
We didn't like that we didn't get any response to our emails before the trip from the Philoxenia property.
Room is decent size and it has almost everything. Terrace is private, but you can hear other guests from the room, because room walls and floors are thin.
Fridge is very old and weak, it needs replacing.
Owner is polite but cleaning ladies are not so efficient.
It is very very noise in the morning, if you like to sleep longer than 7 am, Philoxenia is not best for you. There are a lot of cats and big dangerous dogs(with owners but no leash and without muzzle) who are trying to catch them around the property.
It is ok for a short stay, but we didn't like the price, it is too high.
