“If you are going to Rhodes, spend at least two night and a day in old town”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

This is the place to do it. Marianne, her husband and daughter Maria were great. They picked us up at the airport and drove us to the hotel. (don't try to pull your luggage around old town, cobble streets) In the morning they drove us to the boat dock to catch our boat to Patmos. We had a honeymoon suite that was very romantic, inside the castle walls. We were only scheduled to spend one night here but it was such a great stay we stayed a second night on our return trip from Patmos. This is a great location and everything is within easy walking distance. The breakfast in the morning is outstanding, and the view over old town is even better. Marianne was the best hostess on our trip to Greece. She really cares about, and goes out of her way to take care of her guests.

It‘s been four months since my wife and I returned from a five-week junket to Greece at the end of June, enough time to place the various elements of our trip into perspective. We travelled independently and over the course of our trip we spent time in Athens, Santorini and Mykonos, Kos, and the Peloponnese, in addition to eight days spent in Rhodes. We stayed at the S. Nikolis Hotel in Rhodes Old Town during this period, and while we did stay in some lovely places elsewhere, none exceeded the S. Nikolis in terms of the warmth and hospitality of the proprietors, the delightfully unique ambience of the accomodation, the little extras provided, and the security and pleasure of returning each evening to a warm greeting and a wonderfully comfortable little suite. Marianne and her family were a delight, providing services, information and aid, and friendship, as a matter of course. She acted as arbiter in a brief dispute we had with our travel agency over an issue with our transfers, arranged a car rental by having the rental agent attend in the hotel garden, drove us to the port when it was time to depart, and was always available to answer questions or provide suggestions as to our daily planning and adventures. She became our confidante and our guardian angel and was instrumental in making the Rhodes leg of our trip probably the most memorable. We would highly recommend the S. Nikolis, without reservation.

Room Tip: Garden view a plus.

We only stayed in this hotel one night, because we had to move from our original hotel, which was fully booked for the last night. And we had to leave early the next morning to catch the ferry. Despite our short stay, Marianne made us feel like the most special guests she had ever had. There was a welcoming bottle of wine. She arranged for the breakfast to be ready before our early departure AND she drove us to the ferry. The hotel itself is one of the most charming I've ever seen. The location in the walled city of Rhodos was very convenient, but also out of the main tourist area so it was quiet. We were only sorry we had not been able to stay longer.

We - Lennart and Pernilla - got married 1st of June 2011, and decided to go to Rhodos for our honeymoon trip. We found the hotel on the web - look at the magnificient pictures on their homepage! - and took a low price flight to get there. We were picked up at the airport by the Nikolis' daughter Maria, who drove us all the way to the entrance of the hotel, and the adventure started! Being frequent business travellers (been there, seen it, etc...) we expected something quite good from the pictures we had seen, but quite good is not the word for what we met. So personal, so warm, so medieval and modern, so different in every good way you can think. Reading the reviews from other guests we can only agree. Starting the morning studying the courtyard's turtles and adapting to their pace, have a good breakfast and then take a step out on the street and be right in this fantastic old town of Rhodos, following some advise given by Marianne or Sotiris about what to do or what to see. We really picked most of the Rhodos' cherrys that week! Isn't it stupid to go back to the same place again when there is a whole world to discover? Well, right, but despite this we simply must go back to the Nikolis' hotel and Rhodos the same time next year. That's just how it is!

Room Tip: Just pick one from the pictures on the home page

This lovely old hotel was recommended by our travel agent in Sydney. We arrived very late, due to our plane being delayed, to find Sotiris the owner waiting for us on the street, concerned about our whereabouts. We were quickly organized into our room, drinks arranged, and generally made to feel like family friends rather than hotel guests. Our room was neat, tidy and clean but with none of the bland sterility associated with modern hotels. The room opened on to a nice balcony surrounded by vines. After a good night's sleep in our comfortable bed we had a unique breakfast on the roof-top with great views. Sotiris and his wife are very nice people and we loved talking to them. The hotel is located right in the Old Town, and Sotiris arranges personal transport (call him) to and from the hotel. We highly recommend this hotel for a unique experience.

Best place in town, wonderful room in an old building with Garden and terrace decorated with style and real charme. The owners treat you as "king and queen", and the room is the best: makes you feel as a princess. Romantic, inspire and warm place. Awsome people, delicious breakfast, in the old city near everything. I recomend this place to everyone who love special places with soul.
If you are lucky the owner Sortidis plays guitar to you. Make you feel like part of their Family

We´re a couple in our early 40´s, and found this hotel in a catalogue, and thought it would be nice to stay in a smaller, not so mainstream environment.
Whenever one travels, it´s easy to be disappointed because of too great expactations, but at this splendid little hotel we felt ourselves comfortable and at east at once - SUPER.
We had booked one of the rooms with either terrace or balcony, and got a quiet room overlooking the old town of Rhodes, and its harbour. Sitting there relaxing after a day of exploring was nice, we even got to see a turtle taking a stroll cross the courtyard of the hotel!
Breakfest was always a pleasure aswell - a really good start to a new day, served on the roof terrace. No dull buffet, or slim continental - but a good selection of youghurt & honey, fresh bread, cereal/müsli, fruits and a sweet pastry, just perfect served by smiling and friendly persons.
We couldn´t find anything that didn´t approve with us - and we´re excited to returning to this uniqe and wonderful part of the Mediterranean.
It´s also nice to have found a place that´s neat & tidy, and it will be a pleasure to recommend it further to friends and family for future trips.
If there would be a couple reading this that looks for a romantic place to have their vacation, this is it!!!
