Spirit of the Knights Boutique Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We found a building with lovely, sensitively reconstructed architecture in an attractive historical surrounding. We enjoyed very much the hotel garden where we spent some hours in a wonderful atmosphere. We liked also the kind family who created and is now running this nice oasis.

My husband and I had to find a hotel for our last night in Rhodes at extremely short notice, due to a mess up on our previous accommodation. We found Spirit of the Knights, and It turned out to be a lovely end to our holiday. From start to finish the staff were extremely helpful and professional, and couldn't do enough to help make our stay enjoyable.

Once you walk through the gates, you are greeted with a beautiful courtyard which has jasmine and other fragrant plants to welcome you...it is a real delight to the senses with bags of character and charm throughout. A lovely touch is the welcome drink and a chance to unwind in th courtyard before going up to your room.

The breakfast is fantastic, and the service great. Nothing is too much trouble.

The bed we had in our suite was one of the most comfotable I've ever been in, I would love to have taken it home! This place has been finished to the highest standards and feels extremely luxurious.

It is in a great location close to all of the attractions within the old and new town, but far enough away to experience peace and quiet.

This is family run business...which you can tell as the whole family takes such pride in the hotel and looking after it's customers. Personal touch without being too much, the team have got it down to a fine art!

Great friendly service, wonderful outdoor courtyard space where you can close your eyes and relax and it's such a small hotel that you can almost feel you're in someone's home rather than a hotel. Yes, it is expensive in high season, but it has bucket loads of character and charm, and if you're saving Rhodes Old Town for the last stop of your journey around the island, as I did, then it's a wonderful way to finish.

What sets this hotel apart is the quality and individuality of the service. The staff/family who run it are very friendly and professional . The garden/courtyard invites to relax from the busy Rhodos. We enjoyed the small pool.

My wife and I stayed in Rhodes at The Spirit of the Knights Boutique Hotel late in July. Our holiday consisted of time in Paris in a great hotel, Athens in a great hotel, Marmaris in a good hotel and Santorini in an excellent hotel. However, none of these hotels approached the overall feel of The Spirit of the Knights Boutique Hotel.
As requested, we contacted the hotel by phone from our cab on the way from the airport. The manager instructed us to proceed to D'Amboise Gate, one of several gates to the Old Town. This is done because there are few cars allowed in the Old Town, due primarily to the extremely narrow alleys. As arranged from the cab, the manager met us at D'Amboise Gate. Our luggage transferred to a trolley and off we set to the hotel. This walk was refreshingly pleasant- along cobblestoned lanes, past several restaurants and cafe's, down narrow alleys, with Alex (the manager) giving us a brief history / background lesson as we went.
A five minute walk saw us to the hotel. It is finished beautifully. Alex invited us to sit in the garden to cool down and brought us a welcoming drink of our choice prior to official check in- this was not rushed, but left to us to say when we were ready. The grounds are manicured and serene. A large, raised pond / water feature in the centre cascades water around the entire garden setting. A jacuzzi on a raised platform looks inviting and would be most welcome on a hot day.
Following check in we were escorted upstairs, through the hotel lounge- a large, well decorated, airy room, in keeping with the theme. It is full of bookcases, lounge chairs, tables with chess sets and picture windows.
On to our room- the Rodos Suite. Happily surprised at the size, decoration, furnishings, layout... it was perfect. The bed was perfect- huge, high and adorned with soft, white linen and soft pillows. A large wardrobe alongside the bed also houses the safe.
The Rodos Suite also has a separate lounge room- with lounge, coffee table and television. As usual, maps, hotel and area information booklets are provided.
Bathroom is spacious and well appointed, with huge soft white towels.
All rooms were spotlessly clean.
Windows from all rooms have magnificent views of the garden or of the immense stone walls of the Fortress.
After a break to catch our breath, we met the night manager, Duncan. He kindly directed us to his recommended restaurant- Mama Sofia's. A great recommendation too. We ate there almost every day due to the excellent food and the warm friendly service.
Breakfast the following and proceeding mornings was excellent. Served in the garden, from an extensive menu. It was a pleasure to eat wonderfully prepared food in a relaxing environment.
For other meals, food can be ordered from several restaurants, but really there is no need as they are all near by and the walk through the ancient, cobblestoned alleys is pleasant.
As unprepared tourists, we had many questions regarding the area. These were all met by hotel staff with warmth and enthusiasm. There is a sense that they genuinely want you to have a good time and will do all they can to make sure this happens.
We left the Spirit of the Knights after three nights, absolutely satisfied.
However, due to a mishap, we found ourselves in need of a room four nights later. I called the hotel from Marmaris in Turkey to enquire about accommodation. The manager was most helpful and again, 3 hours or so and a ferry ride later, we found ourselves being escorted from D'Amboise Gate to the Spirit of the Knights. This time we were accommodated in The Grand Masters Suite. Another great room, again beautifully decorated and appointed.
In short- The Spirit of the Knights Boutique Hotel is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. This hotel has that 'take your breath away' punch to it- albeit a gentle, relaxing punch. This hotel has that feeling of warmth about it that you will always remember.
In addition to all this, during our stay I received a great deal of help from Alex with a couple of important issues. His assistance with this was well beyond that to which a hotel manager would normally extend. This was done with such ease and "No trouble at all." As one friend would help another.
The Spirit of the Knights Boutique Hotel is one outstanding hotel.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms at this hotel- they are all outstanding!

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for 4 nights. The hotel has a beautiful tranquil environment in walking distance to the main area of shops and restaurants in the old town. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the beds and pillows are divine. The renovated bathrooms are great and the products supplied by the hotel are of good quality. The hotel staff were friendly and warm and made us feel very welcome. A very yummy Breakfast is served in the garden area every morning with a good selection of food and good coffee. The hotel exceeded all expectations and made our stay in Rhodes a very memorable experience.

We recently stayed for a week at The Spirit of the Knights Hotel and enjoyed every minute of our holiday. What sets this hotel apart is the quality and individuality of the service. The family who run it are very friendly and professional and nothing is too much trouble.
Breakfast is served in the beautiful courtyard garden and is all freshly prepared and cooked to order. The garden is also a lovely place to relax in after a day of walking and sightseeing, with its tranquil pools and exotic plants. A cocktail by the pool is highly recommended. The hotel is located in a very quiet street but is only a few minutes walk from many bars, restaurants and the attractions of Rhodes old town. We look forward to returning.
