“A quirky place to stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights before a ferry to another island. A lively bar with great food at decent prices downstairs. Very helpful staff who were polite, knowledgeable and willing to help. Towels and linen changed daily - great. The room was, unusual and full of quaint objects: a piano, an old treddle sewing maching, cigars and an ancient coffee maker! Two points that detracted: first, the rugs in the room clearly hadn't been vacuumed and were very 'bitty', not nice on bare feet. Second, we booked a quad room. We weren't told, however, that 2 of the beds were up a ladder - impossible for those with mobility problems, and difficult for those without. Impossible to get down safely in the night to the bathroom, as there is no light switch in the top deck.

Room Tip: Check if you have mobility problems - all rooms seemed to be on the first floor up wooden steps and...

This place is like staying in a mini museum, but with all mod cons. 10 min walk to the old town and positioned near some decent little bars and restaurants. Fun and quirky, loved the traditional bed and other touches in the room. Great breakfast too, the omelette must have been made with 6 eggs!

If you enjoy good food, beer or wine as well as interesting and unusual decorations, this is definitely the place for you.....We have eaten in Koukos many times over the past year and have always been made very welcome by the staff who are so very friendly and helpful..Koukos has it's own bakery and the pies, rolls and bread are to die for and the filled rolls are out of this world...The menu is not the largest but everything is superb and the value is excellent, we would recommend having the 1/2 carafe of wine and the 6 small plates, fantastic lunch for only €9, what value..
But now to the best part, we have just stayed in one of the five rooms for a birthday treat..we thought that the restaurant and bars were interesting but the rooms are the same if not better. Our room had fittings and decorations from the 1800's through to the 1950's Phillips Recorder Radiogram and the 1930's huge brass espresso machine. The bed was a traditional high wooden "Lindian" bed and was very comfy, the bathroom is made to look rustic with all the modern fixtures and fittings that one needs.....This place is a real find and if you are thinking of staying in Rhodes Town look no further than Koukos, you will not be disappointed....

Room Tip: There are only five rooms and they are all different, we will go back and try another one later in t...
