“Warm and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We stayed in Philoxenia for 5 days...
Our flight was very late, we were supposed to arrive at the hotel at 22.00, but we arrived at 3.00 AM...the owner was there waiting for us even so late at night.
In the morning Antonis has provided some suggestion for our visit...They provided a map and gave us useful information on the island
Room was clean, with a balcony and a small kitchen...for the 3 of us was very good.
Suggestion for dinner? Aspro Piato, downtown Rodi and Skala at main beach at Lindos.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

We stayed in Philoxenia,Rhodes for 3 days during our Greek Islands tour. The hotel is old but well maintained, the rooms are clean; have a balcony and kitchen. The hotel is family run and the mother and son we met were very warm and friendly people. They provide us a map and gave useful information on the island. We were recommended good restaurants to eat, supermarkets to shop, beaches to visit. We had breakfast for 5 euro the morning we arrived and it was worth the money. We felt home during our stay. The only drawback is the location I must say. We walked to the old town and new town and to the bus stop for lindos and other beaches. Walking to the old town is almost 30 minutes and rather than walking you do not have a chance for local transport since it is hard to catch the buses which do not run frequently. But new town, old town and the port all took 5 euro by taxi if you do not want to walk. It was a value for money.
