The Angela Suites and Lobby is a strange place. The question is: What is going on here??
The building is located in a relatively quiet and actually pretty nice street in downdown Rhodes - this does not get much better. The building looks beautiful from outside. A lounge-like atmosphere has been created at the front terrace and also in the inside lobby. Not bad at all. Breakfast is 5 euros, but probably not worth it. Sweet cakes and cookies.
Front desk staff is just somewhat reluctant, but I guess ok. The guy that was there on our latest visit was helpful enough though.
Rooms/suites are huge - living room with kitchenette, bed room and bathroom. The rooms on the front side have the best view and feels less stuffy.
But read on: The rooms are extremely dirty! The cleaning is just non-existing. Really, really bad. Never seen anything like it. Bathroom very dirty. Kitchen dirty. Bed was clean though.
The furniture, fittings and fake wooden floors are of very, very inferior cheep quality. And totally run down. Cheep materials have been used all the way through. Kitchenettes look awful. Very non appealing.
What a shame this all is, because this hotel could easily have been THE modern boutique downtown hotel in Rhodes. The building, room sizes, location is there.....but the rest is totally missing. Why? Probably because they charge 20 euro for a suite in mid season. Only 20 Euros!!!!
How can this possible? Even in Greece? 20 euros? No wonder cleaning is non-excisting.....
The owners of this hotel, who is also running the great all-inclusive-ish Ixia Grand ought to renovate the Angela Suites and Lobby...this time using better materials....and there it would rise like Phoenix from the ashes: The best downtown hotel in Rhodes increasing the revenue by several 100 percent. Rates could easily be around 200-250 euros a night. It could be worth it.
Right now it's sadly more like a fata morgana.
