Reviewed October 2, 2012

The SILVIA was a great small hotel, well positioned for our needs, just outside the old town walls.Staff were very nice, breakfast great, super views from our room on 4th floor, comfy beds, clean room.Bathroom a little small but for such exceptional value,I can deal with that. A/C in with price and under counter size fridge.Would definately stay again on our next visit.Must mention, some people are confusing the SIVILA in Afandou with the SILVIA in Rhodes Town, it's a shame as they are putting adverse feedback for the SILVIA, when they mean the SIVILA. The SILVIA is great!!Try it!

We stayed at the Hotel Sylvia during August and had a great holiday. The staff were very friendly, the cleaners did the rooms every day and the breakfast was good. The beds are very comfortable. It is in an ideal location for the old town and although there is a small beach within 5 minutes walk, is not too far to walk to the much nicer Elli Beach.The hotel is excellent value for money.

Stayed here as a solo traveler in the high season for about a week. Reasonable rate, good breakfast and very very friendly staff.

Highly recommended especially for the price.

Stayed in the single room which was a bit small, but very reasonable given the price. A small mosquito problem but nothing major.

Hi. I am a single older guy who was refused entry to one of the bigger ferries leaving from Rhodos Town to Piraeus. I went to The Silvia Hotel as it was about a 10 / 15 minute walk from the ferry, and I was pleased by the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the room, which was a new addition on the ground floor with air con, en suite but no balcony. The was no internet connection in my room but it was excellent in the public ground floor area. I would certainly recommend the Silvia Hotel. A GREAT breakfast as well.

Pretty cheap one, great location that is very close to the harbour and the old town. The most important point is that the staff are fantastic friendly!! They are very helpful guiding you the way or giving some good travel tips! Definitely a good choice with this low price.

We staied in Sylvia Hotel only for 1 night because we arrived by ferry from Karpathos and the next day we had the flight to come back home. This hotel is very close to the harbour (10 minutes on foot) and to Rhodes old town. Receptionists are friendly. Beds are comfortable but the bathroom was terrible: too little, the toilet seats was broken, no space to go in the shower, not enough clean. There was a nice balcony. In my opinion only beds are ok in that room. At last, breakfast was not so good, the buffet was poor. For example, no fresh orange juice could be served, they didn't make it; marmelades were not packed; there was no nutella or anything similar, etc. In conclusion, from my point of view this hotel is ok for staying one night, for longer period it's better to change your mind.

We have just come back from a weeks holidays in Rhodes Town and we stayed at the Sylvia Hotel (please don't confuse this with the 'Sylvia Hotel' that has been getting bad reviews elsewhere on the island).

Basic but spotlessly clean, very helpful staff, good breakfast, five minutes walk to the Old Town, we were on the 4th floor (top floor) so we had a lovely view of the harbour area and it was enjoyable having a drink on the balcony and watching the sun go down.

Would definately stay at this hotel again if we return to Rhodes.

Room Tip: Either of the rooms on the 4th floor.
