Good points about this hotel are the location, it's close to the beach, just around the corner in fact. The rooms, lobby and dining areas are of a reasonable standard, dining area and lobby were very clean. The lift worked well.
The bad......if this hotel was located in somewhere like Egypt then it would get 4 or even 5 stars.....but this is Greece which relies on tourism for a substantial part of its foreign income so I am drawing comparisons with similar accommodation I have stayed in elsewhere in Greece.
Room cleaning.....stayed here several days, very hit and miss, some days cleaning forgotten about, other days a reasonable job.....although after 4 days still finding someone's blonde hair in the bathroom.....not mine I am a bit follicularly challenged.
Breakfast......very average at best, self service but food sometimes not replaced when plates empty, and during this time the hotel was at least three quarters full with guests.
Wi fi.....advertised as free in the lobby....it was, but trying to log on? Best to go to a nearby restaurant and use theirs. Available for exorbitant prices in your room......tried it once, it was just as bad as their free option.....after complaining they did not charge me which was a positive, this is 2013, not only is it free in most hotels but more importantly it works.
Also the hotel can be difficult to find for the first timer in Rhodes, my taxi driver dropped me off in the wrong street.....the hotel is also known as the Nausika Hotel.
The hotel is not a terrible choice, but until they get their act together there are definitely much better options around for similar money.....if this is your first time on the islands you may think its ok, but if you have stayed elsewhere you will be disappointed.
