My boyfriend and I stayed here for one week 7th-14th Septmber half board. The hotel is clean and tidy, with a fresh minimalist feel and all the staff are very friendly.
Our room was on the third floor overlooking the street. Despite a little noise from the vehicles outside and the bars across the street (until midnight at weekends) we both had a pleasant nights sleep. The rooms are very simplistic and I would agree with other reviews that there is little storage space, but this really depends on how much you pack! The rooms obviously don't quite match the website photos as these have been dressed up. However, everything is brand new including the bedding. There were even a few tags left on some of the fixtures in the bathroom!
Being half board we got breakfast and dinner included. Drinks were available free of charge at breakfast (self serve tea, coffee, juice and water) but at dinner it was disappointing that not even water was provided free and all drinks were to be purchased from the bar. Drinks were a little expensive at the bar, which is to be expected from a hotel, but the water was especially expensive. For example at large bottle of water at the bar was €2.50 but you could purchase a similarly large bottle in the town markets for as little as €0.70. To add to this, your own food and drink were not allowed in the pool/bar area.
Breakfast was buffet style, cooked breakfast (beans, egg, sausage, bacon), fruit salad, a selection of Greek breads, cakes and biscuits, toast and cereal. Dinner was along the same lines, a selection of fresh salads, tzatziki and feta cheese, a pasta dish, a potatoe dish, rice and vegetables. Then a selection of meat dishes, moussaka, stefado/stew, chicken and occasionally fish. The majority of red meat was beef or lamb. For dessert there was a selection of patties or occasionally cake/tiramasu. All the food was fantastic and authentically Greek. Nicos the restaurant manager was very helpful and would be happy to advise you on places to visit.
Lastly, the location of the hotel is great. About 5mins from the harbour, 5-10mins from the old town and 10mins from the main beach. If you want an easy going holiday in a quiet location, close to all amenities in Rhodes Town and away from the hustle and bustle of the larger hotel resorts then I would thoroughly recommend.
