"Good buy in great neighborhood"

Basically, this was a good buy for the price in a great neighborhood, assuming you want to stay in New town. Near great beaches, excellent restaurants, Casino, aquarium, and easy walking distance to Old Town, bus stops, etc. We were able to take the airport bus into town and walk with our suitcases without problems. Nothing special in terms of amenities (although the pool was very nice, and I'm a lap swimmer), decent breakfast, friendly staff, but just a tad seedy (the comments about the dirty, worn carpet in the hall seemed to be true, although we had no problems with air conditioning or extra charges). Overall, a clean budget hotel in a super location (loved the public beach across the street and the Internet cafe next door--we seem to have problems finding free Internet at Greek hotels, but this was a pretty good compromise).

This is a very typical European hotel. The beds were hard and low and our 'queen' bed was just two twin beds pushed together, which I really didn't appreciate on my honeymoon. The hotel was convenient to the beach, restaurants and bars. It was a good value for the price, but definitely not a luxury hotel. There was a lot of traffic noise from the street. And I really don't like the European shower with the flimsy shower curtain where the water goes all over the bathroom floor. And trying to hold the shower nozzle while washing my hair, is just too much trouble. Also there were little tiny bugs jumping around the bathroom floor, looked like fleas or something. Other than that, the room was clean and decent. Staff was friendly. Internet was free, but had to go downstairs to get a connection.

Surprisingly good value for money hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Lunch and evening meal include many greek specialities. Breakfast a bit repetitive but the Dutch alternative of rolls, cheese and ham is recommended. Hotel attracts tourists
from UK, Holland, Greece etc. Outdoor pool, supplied with many sunbeds, very popular. Thank goodness for the 09.45 bus to Rhodes Town which calls at the hotel because location a bit remote. Worth hiring a car because some of the most attractive scenery in Greece are only some 30-45 minutes away. OK, there is a power station half a mile away, with elecricity pylons close by the hotel, but you never see them after the first day. To repeat, a good value for money hotel. You will not be disappointed if you book it. Never heard any critiscism from fellow guests.
