“Nice city hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I have visited this hotel in May 2013 with my friends. We had triple room which had no sea view however was much bigger than double room and had better and bigger bathroom.
The hotel is situated in 10 minutes walk from the center of the city with all you need: cafe, bars, supermarkets, shops etc. Sleep quality is much better than the other hotel provide because it is situated not in front of the main road.
Service was good. We were provided with iron upon request, the food on dinner was great and different every day. For breakfast the food was almost the same every day, however it was still fine. The beach near the hotel is really windy with huge waves.
We rented car - nisan micra from the local rental service 'Just rent'. It costed us 140 euro for 5 days because it was not a high season, so we got a great discount. The manager gave us recommendations and destinations of all the places we should see around the island. We loved them all. We loved the island. The best time to visit it is May, June, September and October. Local people say it is extremely overcrowded in July and August.

Room Tip: All the triple rooms have no sea view, however the bathroom is better there

We have stayed at Semiramis hotel for a week vacation last summer. It was a good looking hotel, comfortable rooms, even if a bit too small. The bathroom was among the smallest that I've ever seen (maybe the smallest)- sitting on the toilet you could wash your hands, take a shower or close/open the door. That was funny. We got used to that and learned to manage. Cleanliness was bright, staff was polite and helpful and the food was really good, in spite of the food at the tavernas which missed the real greek flavour that we were accustomed to. Overall, this hotel is worth.

It was a business trip. The hotel was just ok. Next to the coast just a minute away. The most important was that it was very easy to find a park space next to Semiramis. Average breakfast but still was ok.

This is a nice hotel, modern and clean, with a great breakfast. It is a little bit out of the way and when driving to it, be mindful of the one way system in Rhodes Town. We relied on verbal directions and nearly went batty trying to get to the place. In the end, I lost patience and dived the wrong way up a one way street. I wouldn't recommend this approach, so maybe get a good street map or a sat nav.

Once we got to the hotel, we were delighted, given that we had booked on a budget rate but were upgraded to an executive room. The room was a little small, but had a nice balcony from which you could see the Sea.

It is a little out of the way for Old Town Rhodes. Top tip, don't walk round via the beach front, this will take AGES. Instead, walk up the hill from the hotel, turn left at the top and follow this road into the Old Town. Much more pleasant walk as the road isn't so busy and brings you to the Old Town in approx 10 mins. If you want the beach, just trot down the hill.


The staff in the hotel were excellent & there is a really helpful 'ariport' checker system in the lobby, allowing you real time access to departures and arrivals, should you be going on a flight. We avoided sitting in the airport for 3 hours because of this ( easyjet late departure)

The only mad thing in the place is the lift. It is tiny, really really small, we struggled to get 2 people and 2 rucksacks in. It also has a mental manual door thing, which we couldnt get the hang off at all. We took the stairs.

Nice hotel, recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Perhaps be cheeky and ask for an upgrade? Worked for us... :-)

Very nice service - we were given a room for free where we could shower after a long day at the pool, before we left to the airport. Pool area quite small, and the sun chairs were quite bad design. Great location near the bar street. WiFi free at the lounge.

We were 5 of us. My husband, our 6 year old son and I in one room and my parents in another room. When we booked the rooms we required sea view which my parents got (5th level) but we didn't get because they said that the sea view rooms were smaller and they couldn't fix an extra bed for our son, we nicely told them please to find a solution, so they did. Staff is very kind and always willing to help you. Receptionists, waiters, bar attendants and cleaning ladies, all very kind especially with children.

Breakfast and dinner choices are varied and plenty, but after a week the breakfast seems always the same. Coffee was horrible to my taste but after the third day I managed to mix it on a way I could get something tasty. My husband is vegetarian, and he always found something nice to eat. You won't find especial vegetarian choices but there are plenty of vegetables and salads.

The location is perfect, two blocks away from the beach(cobbled), it is perfect to go jogging in the mornings or evening. The sunset is beautiful from here. You can walk easily from here to the city center, shops, market, old town, port...etc

There is a small pool where you can relax if you don't want to go to the beach.

The only downside I found is that the rooms actually are small and the bathrooms are no way bathrooms from a 4 star hotel, especially the shower cabin, it is really small, there is a curtain and water gets spread everywhere.

Wifi was free of charge in the lobby, we didn't require it in the room so I can tell anything about that.

Other than that we had a great time in Rhodes, and the hotel was an excellent choice, everything was like in the pictures (except for the shower), everything was clean and food was nice. We love Greece but we always had bad surprises with the hotel and the food, it was never like they promote them, but Semiramis was and were very glad to come to the hotel after a long day of exploration or beach time in the island and find nice food a nice bed and a very nice environment.

If you decide to stay in Semiramis, ask for a room in the 4th or 5th floor, ground floor rooms have a view to neighbor buildings.

If you rent a car, it is easy to find a parking spot on the street. You don't have to pay extra for A/C.

All in all Semiramis hotel in Rhodes town is a very nice place for a very good price!

Room Tip: High floors to get a nice view!!
