“spot on!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Stayed 3 nights in August. Cute little hotel, shower room pretty small but not a problem for us. Michael is really friendly. Breakfast is basic but there are lots of places nearby if you need something more. Was very hot when we were there but soon found the turbo switch on the aircon so this helped a lot at night. We didn't read the notice on the back of the door so didn't realise we needed to hang a notice on the door knob to getour room cleaned so watch out for that if you're there more than one night. We liked the hotel and the little terrace and would definitely go back again. It's so central for everything in the old town.

I simply loved this hotel,it was a pity, I could stay only one night,but I definitely will come back!The whole hotel reminded me of the time of the knights and it was great!! My room was filled up with great painted pictures,rugs were laid down, so it felt really nice and cosy. There is an awesome terrace on the roof.Michael was very helpful and kind! The hotel is situated in the middle of the old town,everything is walking distance there, even the harbor is like 5min walk.

I can only agree wholeheartedly with the other reviews published here. The Spot Hotel has got to be one of the best hotels in Rhodes. The location is fabulous -- just a few steps off one of the main squares (The Square of the Jewish Martyrs), yet very quiet. The decor in the public areas is traditional (maroon curtains, cushions, Greek portraits on the stone walls, wooden furniture, little courtyards, and a rooftop sitting area overlooking the Old Town.

When you step into the comfortable, cool lobby after tramping through the hot streets, you find yourself in a homey, cozy atmosphere. I spent some time just lolling around on the lobby couches, watching the news and enjoying chatting with Michael, the manager.

Lee, the father, has now given over the management of this family-run hotel to Michael, his son.

When we arrived, one of the reading lights in our room did not work, and it was quickly taken care of. When we remarked on Lee's amazing English, we learned that he is an American from New York, who returned, like many Greek hotel owners, to run the family business,

Our room (number 8) was a triple, with a large king sized bed, and a twin next to it. We used this for our suitcases. The room, decorated beautifully, with sheer maroon curtains, and a lovely matching spread faced the street, but was completely quiet. The bathroom was small, but everything worked well -- no problems there.

Breakfast was great with a coffee machine giving out as much as we liked, cereals, breads, juices, fruits, boiled eggs, and much else.

The Spot is just moments away from all the major sights of Rhodes Town. We had planned to rent a car and drive into the countryside on our second day there, but there was so much to see -- the Palace of the Grand Masters, the Archeological Museum, New Rhodes, the ancient walls, old mosques, the Jewish quarter, and the many interesting shops -- that we didn't venture outside Rhodes Town. That will happen on our second visit to Rhodes.

When visiting Rhodes Town, be sure and venture into the narrow streets in the interior of the town, beyond the tourist streets and squares. Here you will find many interesting little restaurants (lunches for very low prices), shops, quiet squares and a fabulous old Greek atmosphere. We enjoyed this especially at night, expecting to see a monk with a cowl or a knight passing us by in the dark. Lee told us that Rhodes is a safe city and we were not to worry about crime if we ventured off the beaten path.

Finally, Michael is especially to be commended for helping us when we left on a very early flight by rising at 5 am to call a cab for us and making sure we got off on time. Thank you, Michael.

Room Tip: We loved Room 8. It is of good size and beautifully decorated (although the other rooms look lovely...

Chose this on the basis of another member of our group's experiences here 12 years ago, and we were not disappointed. Lee has now moved to the nearby Gate Restaurant, and his son Michael has taken over. He is a pleasant, helpful and considerate host. The location of this hotel is great - literally a few steps from the touristy square, but it feels as quiet as a purely residential area. The rooms are small but comfortable, the breakfast is adequate, the rear courtyard is a great place to unwind over a drink (bring your own) after a hard day's touristing. We really liked Rhodes and this hotel added to our enjoyment without breaking the budget,

My reviews tell of the good and the bad, and in the case of the Spot Hotel it is all good. Michael has now taken over the running of the hotel from his father Lee (Elios), making him the third generation to run this hotel. Look at the other reviews of the Spot and you will see that they are consistently good. I stayed at the Spot twice this year, in late April and early June 2012 for a total of 7 nights. Lee, Eva, his wife and Michael do a brilliant job. I can only reinforce everthing that others have said about convenience, freindliness, comfort, cleanliness, and helpfulness. Also my wife has a serious dietary requirement, which was very well satisfied, by Michael's special arrangements for breakfast. For my wife and I, we felt that we were part of the family. We will return again in a couple of years, and will stay for longer at the Spot. A cool and quiet retreat just near all the action in the Old Town

We had been in Turkey for ten days when we made the crossing by ferry to Rhodes Town. We had chosen The Spot Hotel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. They were spot on! From the ferry port, after going through customs, we walked to our hotel. It could not have been closer or easier to find, which is a bonus in the old city. We went past the dolphin statue (on your right), and then through the Virgin Gate. Turn left at the seahorse fountain and it is just a few doors up on your left.
You feel like you are walking into a former knight's residence. It is ideally situated, tastefully decorated, with a small garden and a rooftop terrace. Best of all, the family who owns The Spot is welcoming and able to give information on just about anything in Rhodes Town. It is quiet and peaceful and the rooftop is an ideal place to relax with a glass of wine after a long day. We stayed for four nights. The room was more than adequate with room for clothes storage and an ensuite bathroom with a shower, sink and toilet.

The hotel itself is very safe. It has a controlled entry (you will be given a key) and of course, you have the key to your room as well.

The only suggestion I might make is to add some of that wonderful Greek yogurt and some fruit to the breakfast buffet. Even without them, it is The Spot in Rhodes Town. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Room 6 is a double room on the second floor ( no elevator), that has access to a small balcony with...

This small hotel is in a very good location near 1 of the squares in the old town. Close to everything, including the harbor for ferry tickets. It is family run and has a nice feel to it. Michael is a nice guy who helps you with any query. Very friendly staff. The location is quiet at night and the room can be made to be dark, so a great long sleep is assured if you want it.
