Rhodes Hotel Near Port

We (two single females) are visiting Rhodes in August staying overnight until our ferry to Kalymnos the next morning on Dodekanse Seaways.

Can anyone suggest a nice hotel near restaurants and bars but close enough to taxi to the pier in the morning. Price is not a major concern but a super expensive hotel would be silly since the stay is overnight. We just want to enjoy a nice dinner and drink for our one night and sleep at a reputable and clean hotel.

In addition, if we pre-purchase our ferry tickets in advance are the kiosks open at the pier to pick them up prior to our 830 am ferry departure. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Any hotel within the Old city walls is also within walking distance of the Kolonna quay for the ferry.

I have used the Hermes and the Lydia in the New town, they are within walking distance of Kollona quay with a backpack for sure. That area is full of bars/restaurants, no problemo.



They sell tickets to the ferry so of course it will be open before an 08:30 ferry.

The ticket office at Kolonna opens at 07:30. Usually very prompt and you'll see two staff drive up, unlock the building (a bit bigger than the usual Greek quayside hut because this is the main ticket and enquiry office for the business) and once the computers have booted up, open the sales windows. Bring your booking confirmation and they exchange this for the actual tickets. If you don't have the confirmation they can still issue the tickets but they'll need to see a passport or national i.d. card.

The Best Western Plaza in the New Town is perfect, it's a 2 minute walk from beautiful Mandraki Harbour if you have a spare hour or so.

I had no noise issues at this hotel (some in Old and New Town have very late music bars near them!) and they have a fantastic friendly bar, with great guys who make the best cocktails.

A taxi to your ferry would only take 5 mins but it's a little too far to walk with luggage. The hotel would call one for you and it would pick you up from the door.

I'll be staying there for 2 weeks in July and again in September. Oh, also free wifi and a lovely dining room if breakfast is needed.

Have a great time in Kalymos, a beautiful island :)
