“Excellent location and wonderful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2011

Just stayed at the Great Western in Rhodes. We had a room with a pool view, away from the busy street. Very helpful staff and clean rooms. Easy walk to both old and new town of Rhodes, 5 minute walk to the beach. Even better was that I mentioned to the staff that I had a gluten allergy and they were able to cater for my breakfast and dinner requirements.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street, pool view.

We stayed at this Hotel at the end of May for 7 nights.
Location: In the 'New Town', but only a 10 minute stroll from the 'Old Town', and similar to the nearest beach. 2 minutes from a variety of bars and restaurants. 25 euro taxi ride from the airport.
Room: A large spacious bedroom containing a comfortable bed, a desk with chair, cupboard and minibar, table and further chair and sofa bed. Plenty of storage space, extra pillows and a safe. The bathroom was small and cramped, though everything worked as it should. The balcony too was small and cramped, having just enough space for 2 chairs.
Meals: We were on a bed and breakfast deal - the breakfast buffet was varied, and the hot options were well-cooked; there was a 'show kitchen' where you could have omelettes made up to order. We didn't have an evening meal there, but the menus suggested a good variety on the 15 euro per head buffet, and the a la carte menu showed prices which were similar to the local restaurants.
Other facilities: There was a pool with pool bar/snack bar, and plenty of seating as well as sunbeds. (Somebody tried to reserve sunbeds using towels, but the staff removed them) There is also another street-facing bar. There was a Sauna/fitness centre which we did not use.
Staff: Helpful and pleasant throughout the hotel.

We stayed 1 week at the Plaza Hotel in Rhodos-city and were very happy with our stay. The hotel is in a very good location, 5 min. walking from the old town, 5 min. from the harbour, 5 min. from the busstation and in the middle of the new town. So you have everything by the hand. All people working at the hotel are very friendly and helpfull. We loved the buffetbreakfast, everything on the buffet was just so good, and the freshly prepared oranje-juice is a big plus! The big swimmingpool with sunterrace is a nice place to relax from visiting the town. The room is OK, nothing special, but OK. The balcony is a bit small to sit comfortabel. The room itself was very clean. Our room was looking at the pool and it was very quiet at night. The only two minor negative things we can say are: First it is a pity that people may smoke in the restaurant and second, please take away that black parasol that should have to be white, from the terrace at the swimmingpool. We found it lovely to be so close to the old city of Rhodos. Especially in the evening, when it is much more quieter, you can have a real taste of the middle-ages. We found some good restaurants there, especially "Yiannis" in Platonos, a sidestreet of Sokratous, is good and "Kostas" in Pythagorastreet .And do a boattrip to the island of Symi, it is such a nice place. So, enjoy your trip to Rhodos, like we did!

Room Tip: ask for a room at the side of the swimmingpool.

We stayed four nights and rented car from Plaza Travel next door who were friendly and efficient...car a bit decrepit but got us to where we wanted to go without any problems.
Recommend room at the back as it's much quieter. Breakfast generous and decent quality but evening meal not so good. Staff all very friendly and friendly. Overall this hotel has a really good atmosphere and attracts people from round the world which makes it an interesting stay.

We stayed on Rhodos one week April 27 - May 4 2011. We stayed first night in Athena, but we didnt like the location and moved to BW Plaza hotels. Location fine very near Mandraki port, streets are good to walk to town center and you can reach Old town walking on nice shore promenade. Breakfast is OK, only minus dinner food. `Do not take half board

The Plaza Hotel has an excellent location in Rhodes Town, in the center of New Town surrounded by shops, with Old Town a 10 minute walk away, and many restaurants only a block away. Despite being in the center, it was quiet - no problems sleeping.

We really enjoyed the swimming pool - we stayed for a week and swam every day - it's reasonably large (maybe 20m of so) and very quiet (at least at the end of April), so we could swim lengths.

The rooms are large enough, though a bit dated, and the bathroom is a bit on the small side - more 3* than 4* - but that would be our only criticism of the hotel. The reception, bar and restaurant were good - the breakfast was fine - a fair selection of hot and cold items.

So, great location, and good pool, and you can get a good price if you shop around. Recommended.
