“Alex Polizzi would have a field day.”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

For non uk readers Alex Polizzi is a hotel makeover specialist with a uk tv series. It must be remembered that this is a 2 * hotel, and if you bear that in mind it becomes a gem of a hotel.
Ok, a refurbishment is long overdue, the overall pink colour scheme, and the artificial flowers really do have to go.
However, from the air conditioned dining room, the free wifi (lobby only), the choice of food (breakfast excepted) and the selection of cocktails from the bar this hotel ticks all the boxes.
Friendly and helpful staff complete the picture. The Lithuanian students that help around the hotel deserve a special mention.
One word of caution, the brand new lift has only one small obstruction sensor situated two thirds down the door. If this doesn't detect anything, the door will close. Beware.
Would we stay again - yes.

DO NOT STAY HERE ITS TERRIBLE we are there at this moment we are having a horrible time we arrived to be dump on a dark lonely road to find the hotel, and when we finally arrived to be told no they have not got a room. About four other people the same they over book people.

The Hotel put us over the road in a 1 star grotty room you can stay here if you want and were told you can use the hotel facility's which we had to cross the road to. as if we didn't want to do that but had no choice because we were tired and wanted to sleep having just arrived.
.Next day they still had no room at the hotel, our cases were in reception untill 40clock today they had a room not what we had booked flies all around the door, room near a road .
The food was pasta no drinks sprits untill 5 told all the I ce cream had gone at 12 and was not replacing it. The only nice part was the pool 9 sun beds total lots of people complaining for the same thing. hotel reception was unhelpful telling us to relax and go for a swim stop worrying we will move you tomorrow let's see if they do not happy so don't book there it's happening all the time people arriving being put in basement because there is no room BEAWARE #############

I got here and was shocked at what I saw when I arrived!! Room was small with very small awkward bathroom, all inclusive doesn't mean all inclusive- no spirts till 5pm, no snacks before lunch or after, no enough sunbeds was forced to sit on a chair to sunbathe. Not in a good area if you want to be in town!!! Do not book!!!!!

Just come back from here, stayed a week. Would recommened highly taxi (30€) tranfer as located down a one way street where coaches find it difficult but drop you of at top of the road around 200m away. the hotel was old fashioned and dated but doesnt affect your holiday it has everything you need, rooms basic n clean fridge is lovely n cold, we just used the fan in our room as dint need aircon. Breakfast - continental only but lunch and dinner very nice meals with 2/3 choices, icecream for desert. All inclusive drinks is from 11am till 11pm. Get drinks with breakfast up until 10am. This is local products the white wine was nice. Got the holiday for a/I for £504 for everything flights, hotel, baggage and transfers. So bargain badic holiday for nice time away. Go in taxi to old snd new town only cost 5 to 7 euro would recommened to go old town and a boat trip. Thanks all the staff and we meet lovely people varied nationalities british, australian, german, russian n swedish.

Stayed here for 1 night as catching ferry to Symi the next day. We paid 20 Euros including breakfast. The room was clean and very quiet, the breakfast was basic but the amount we paid what else could we expect. The staff are first class, I would stay here again!

Room Tip: we asked for a quiet room and that's what we got

If you are looking for cheap hotel in quiet place - Rainbow hotel is right for you! Personel was helpful and friendly. Check in procedure was passed immediately, even more - personel helped with my luggage. Room cleaning - everyday.. Free Wi-FI. English language knowledge might be helpful here - no one speaks German or Russian (save for tourists from Germany and Russia) - only English and Greek. It`s only 5-7 mins to the beach: it is sandy and the only one sad moment - approx first 5 meters sea depth is only 1.5m! - then a plate and then much deeper depth. About 20 mins by foot to the port/beach Mandraki,where you can enjoy either Mediterranean or Aegean sea (Aquarium is right in between). Right before Mandraki beach is Old town takes place. Food in the hotel is not so diverse, but tasty: meat, fish - everyday. Icecream - every morning, day and evening. Coctails from 7 to 11 pm.

Room Tip: You`d better ask rooms with windows which go to the town. View to swimming pool is not the best opti...

We arrived in this hotel which was in 'renovation', no elevator, dark entry with mess everywhere! smell of dust but very helpful receptionist! we had a quick look at the room and decide to change hotel with no time to waste! Horrible impression. The district is sad, isolated and dirty feel.

Room Tip: If you look for dirt cheap then it is good enough for you but when you like comfort and a certain st...
