“Great place i midst of ancient surroundings.”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

A great quiet place to stay in Rhodes Old Town at the southwest part just by the moat. Nice personal rooms with very comfy beds! You live in a history book and one just wish The walls could tell their tales. Rent a vespa and go to small beaches around Rhodes town. The wonderful owner Marianne most willingly Will help you out if u want. In The old town there are great historic locations to see and shopping+restaurants everywhere just by The corner from this small hotell. Highly recommend it.

Our 12-day stay at the S. Nikolis (April 7 -19, 2012) was a highly-rewarding experience. The physical set-up of the hotel is unique: a partly medieval structure within the old city, next to the imposing wall; a court; and more. The hotel's facilities and amenities were very comfortable, but the main asset of the hotel is Marianne, its owner and manager. Her support and help in any detail; her attention to every need or wish which we had; her friendship and generosity - made the stay at a the hotel one of the best vacations we've ever had. We highly recommend the S. Nikolis.

We stayed at S. Nikolis for 3 nights and would have loved to have stayed longer if only we had had the time!

We were given a very warm welcome by Marianne, the owner, who showed us the room we had booked as well as a spacious suite which she offered us at no extra expense as an alternative. The choice was ours to make and we accepted the upgrade. We were given a tour of the premises and were invited to use the terrace and gardens anytime we liked.

Situated within the walls of the Old Town, this small hotel has been restored over a period of many years, allowing visitors a fascinating glimpse not only of historical finds but also of a bygone era. Modern touches cleverly blended with antiques, afford guests a really special, comfortable, and welcoming environment. We loved the jacuzzi bath, the abundance of clean, fluffy towels, bathroom goodies and pretty bedding. A telephone in the room with direct dial access was very useful as was the fridge with complimentary bottles of water and beer. Every single corner of the hotel is spotlessly clean and the smell of cleanliness combined with the scent of blossoms pervaded the air day and night.

The location of the hotel was ideally suited to our personal needs as we prefer the incomparable ambiance of the Old Town with its hundreds of little shops and eateries to the very contemporary New Town.

Breakfast was spectacular! Served on the terrace with amazing views, our table was filled with choices that would satisfy the pickiest of palates: Fresh fruit, pastries, two types of bread, butter, honey, marmalade, cheeses and cold cuts, olives, eggs, fresh juice, choice of hot drinks ......

Nothing was too much trouble for Marianne, her daughter Maria or members of staff. When we asked for some hot water to make a cup of tea, a kettle, milk, etc appeared in our room within seconds. They also gave us great recommendations of where to eat, where to buy ferry tickets from and which sights to visit at that time of year.

A fully equipped bar with music opens at lunchtime and again in the evening. Drinks can be enjoyed either at the bar or at one of the tables in the garden outside.

Marianne had arranged for a taxi to collect us at the airport when we arrived and she very kindly dropped us off at the port herself when we left. Of course we had to pay the going rate to the taxi driver, however, the drop off journey was afforded to us for free.

We felt that we left friends behind when we left Rhodes but hopefully we shall return in the foreseeable future. We have already recommended the S. Nikolis to family and friends for its quality, service and friendly assistance. We couldn't have asked for a better deal in Rhodes!

We stayed at the apartment which is 1minute walked from Main hotel building. The hotel located at side of Old town center, around 10minutes walk to Plateia Hippocrates.
I have booked the apartment throught the email, and have the owner replied very quick and happy to answer all my questions!

We have booked studio apartment for 3 of us, but happened to offer us 2 apartments which connected together at the same price when we arrived. It was supurise & an extra bonus for us!! Of course, we are happy with the apartment even if just gave us the studio apartment!

The Apartment is big & clean. Service is good! If there is WiFi in the apartment (not only the main hotel building), it will be excellent!!

If we have chance to visit Rhodes again, we will definitely stay there again!

My husband and I travelled to Rhodes (Rodos) for a mini break so unfortunately only stayed at the S. Nikolis Hotel for one night. The owner Marianne was there to greet us and to my husbands delight is Danish - as is he, so they were able to catch up a bit on the 'motherland' :)
S. Nikolis Hotel is a family owned and run hotel and as per most off my experiences with boutique hotels, it shows in the detail. Complimentary wine, thick fluffy towels and homey knick-knacks that you simply don't find in 'mass produced' hotels.
As we were there in the 'off season' the restaurant wasn't open but a short stroll into the heart of the old town and there are plenty of options to choose from.
Marianne was also kind enough to take us to the Acropolis for a quick peek before we headed back.
With so much to see and do in the old town of Rodos you probably won't spend too much time in your room but it's nice to know it is waiting for you at the end of a long day of sight-seeing.

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.
