We thank this guest very much for her kind words: reviews like this do so much to remind us why we do what we do!
We stayed for 3 nights and really liked the hotel. It is in a great location in the old town but as it is an old building then some degree of compromise is required eg our bathroom was separate from the room and the shower wasn't great but these minor inconveniences are more than compensated for by the character and atmosphere of the hotel and very pleasant hosts David and Constance. The complimentary drinks on the terrace every evening to watch the sunset were a great start to the evening. Room was very clean and breakfast was good. It was great walking down from the hotel to the harbour area at night, after all the tourists and cruise ships have left, through deserted very atmospheric narrow medieval streets.
Old buildings like ours do have charm, and sometimes unattached bathrooms also! Two (#18 and #19) of our rooms have these - but they are private, with a key, and those rooms do share a terrace with a great view over the Old Town and the sea. So your choice of rooms can be a matter of what comes first for you. We thank these guests for understanding this so well! And we thank them for their perceptive review, and hope to see them here again some day.
We had a lovely stay at Hotel Andreas. We enjoyed the sunset views from the terrace with Constance and David's civilised 7pm drinks. We spent at least an hour chatting with David, picking his brain and considerable knowledge about Rhodes' history and culture. It was easy to be at Hotel Andreas, and relaxing - exactly as a hotel on holiday should feel. A lovely breakfast in the morning, a couple of lovely pieces of fruit from the garden to take on our travels and a friendly farewell. Far preferred to the perfectly renovated, but totally impersonal hotels, we might have otherwise have found ourselves at.
We remember these guests well - they asked us very perceptive questions about Rhodes, and Greece generally. We're glad they enjoyed themselves, and we'll be glad if they can make it back here some day!
Hotel Andreas was just perfect for us. The details that really make a stay easy and fun were all handled quickly and professionally: booking the room, taxi ride from airport through the narrow streets of Old Town, taxi rides to the beach, recommendations for the best beaches for us, restaurant recommendations.
Sunset drinks on the terrace were served with the gracious and interesting hosts Constance and David.
Our room was on the top floor with windows on 3 sides and the breeze was delightful. Even though there's air conditioning in the room, it wasn't needed. There were steep stairs, but the climb was worth the view and the breeze. Our room was SPOTLESS every day! It can't be easy to make the bed; however, the housekeeper did a great job.
We spent a couple afternoons on the lovely patio surrounded by fruit trees, flowers and herb plants - it was so relaxing.
Rhodes is wonderful, and our stay at Hotel Andreas made it a PERFECT holiday for us. We'll be back.
Many thanks to this guest for her exceptional review - And for a description of room #21 that we couldn't do better ourselves. We really appreciate this. And our housekeeper Gina, an unsung heroine of the Hotel Andreas, would like to add her thanks, too.
We are staying in Old Town in Rhodes at the most unique bed and breakfast hotel I've ever seen. It is old world charm in the historic Old Rhodes Town with it's narrow cobblestone streets with thousand year history throughout. The hotel is traditional archetecture for the old town. It has stairs, so expect some difficulty if you need accessability. Our room is up on the second floor with an additional staircase in the room. The view from our room is spectacular. We see all of old town, the harbor, and the sea. We can even see Turkey 16 kilometers away. The hosts cater to even the slightest need or want. They are truly wonderful hosts. Watching the sunset from the terrace is a daily event. Great place to stay.
We are grateful to these guests for their wise words, for their company on the terrace each evening - and for pointing out that once you've climbed the 14 stairs to room #21, it's definitely worth it. It isn't only photographers who appreciate a panoramic view like this one.
Looking at other reviews and the hotel website, we feel Hotel Andreas is being over-sold quite a bit. We knew it would be basic but thought character and company would make up for that. In the end, we found the whole experience to be oddly empty and soulless.
At best, David and Constance were polite but distant hosts, and apart from a couple old film posters Hotel Andreas didn't have any of the character, life or interest I had expected from a hotel that names its rooms after the protagonists of the Alexandria Quartet and boasts the romance of the building's Ottoman history.
In the clear light of day, the rooms we stayed in (Mountolive and Asteria) were both small and noisy, the bed was hard and the linens a bit worn, the bathroom arrangement (down the hall) quite uncomfortable.
The views from the terrace and the location were great.
We thank this guest for his originality: never before have we been accused of soullessness, or of overselling our hotel; and if other reviewers have likewise been overselling it, there is very little we can do, except thank them. It took seven emails each way to set up this guest's three-night visit; his airport pickup in the wee small hours was done for a price no taxi could match. He got the rooms he wanted, our customary sunset drinks, handmade mattresses and 100% cotton sheets. We regret that our rare old film posters did not appeal and our Lawrence Durrell library went unnoticed. Perhaps we failed to give this guest quite the attention he felt he deserved: in which case, we apologise.
