“A night at The Lydia”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The Lydia was re-vamped recently, a couple of years back, though it kept the rather dark brown design it certainly improved its breakfasts and rooms. I much prefer the bar at the Plaza around the corner but the Lydia is cheaper to stay at and the staff are just as welcoming, if not more so. The rooms are comfortable and have all you need. When my partner and I stayed there and he had a broken leg they went out of their way to look after him, even helping him get his breakfast when I wasn't there and putting us in a room near the lift; they still remember us. It's usually a quiet place, not on a busy street and is always clean and friendly.

The hotel seems newly renovated. It is clean and decent in room quality. Not all rooms have street view so ask the reception in advance if you are concerned. If you don't have a car, you can rely on this hotel to walk the city centre. The personnel is ok.

We stayed in the Hotel Lydia for 2 nights as the ferry schedules had changed and we had to leave earlier than expected from the island we were staying on. We booked the day before through Booking.com and paid a total of 90 euros for 2 nights for 2 including breakfast. The room was well appointed and clean. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were helpful and polite. The hotel is a 5 min walk from the old town. We will definately stay here again and would recommend it.

Stayed here overnight before catching a ferry to Leros. The room was modern, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was very modern and bright. This is an ideal hotel if you are looking for a stopover. Within walking distance of ferry port and strolling distance of the old town.

I hardly gave 5 stars in any of my reviews but I think this hotel deserves it.
What you get for what you pay is way too much...
Room was clean and very comfortable, walk in shower, hairdrier, air con, tv, safe..
Staff very friendly, breakfast very good, buffet lunch very reasonably priced.
We will definetly make this our hub in Rhodes.
