This is unlike most other hotels - and in a good way. I liked that it was small, with only a handful of rooms. The building itself was fascinating and rich with history, and beautifully appointed with Byzantine and medieval touches. Nestled deep inside Old Towne it was an adventure walking through the narrow cobblestone streets and back alleys to get to and from the hotel. It's family owned and operated and when you stay there, you feel like a member of the family. Alex and his family were extremely attentive and provided friendly, personalized service, from cooking breakfast, to hauling our luggage, to making excellent suggestions for activities and restaurants. All the restaurants he steered us to were great, and he told us about a hidden gem of a beach with white sand that few tourists knew about, we checked it out and enjoyed a great afternoon on a beautiful beach.
Only one critique - the rooms were too dark, need better lighting.
One other thing to be aware of: There is not a traditional swimming pool, as they are not allowed in Old Towne. But there is a plunge pool and burbling fountain set in a beautiful garden. There is a nice breeze blowing through and colorful flowers, it made a lovely, relaxing setting - an oasis to escape to from the bustling and crowds of tourists in the rest of Rhodes.
Highly recommended for a memorable and unique experience.
Kudos to Alex and his family!
