the manager tried to say the hotel was full after we had prepaid. he lied and was just trying to get more expensive night stay from same day guest. really made me angry.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great staff, meh room."
As our last stop in Greece, I was quite pleased with the view. Then I sat down on the bed, or should I say beds...two twin beds do not equal a double...even if you push them together. Let's be honest, hotels in Greece don't typically have the most comfortable beds. The bed at Blue Sky was terrible, with individual springs jabbing me in the ribs all […] night. Everything you might need at this hotel is available for a surcharge. WiFi? Not free. Available for about 3 Euros/hour. Need to use the room safe (listed as an amenity I believe)? Be prepared to plunk down a 10 euro deposit (the clerk allowed us to use the safe for free, but it's apparently a surcharge as well.) Great view, okay location (about a 15 minute walk from old town). I feel bad giving this place a meh review, because the staff was great and super attentive, but seriously, in 2013 hotels should provide wifi for free and not charge to use the safe.

"Great hotel for seasoned travelers"
We had a ground floor room with a view of the beach. The air conditioner wasn't the best so it felt warm in the room at some times. The hotel staff was great! We wanted to rent scooters and the desk helped coordinate the process. Great location and also great staff!Genuine Expedia guest review
I recommend for everyone. Specialy those couples with childrens.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Sky Blue Hotel in Rhodes let down by little things"
The Hotel is good, all the staff are super but the food and the rooms could so easily be much better. - The food is good but could do with better presentation and service. Our room would have been much better had it had a more up to date TV and certainly needed a better laundry detergent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the beach and the to the old city"
It's a bit old as a hotel but still it is quite pleasant, with very good service and quite good facilitiesGenuine Expedia guest review
Not as advertised. Beds were rock hard, shower so small you couldnt turn around in it. Advertised as Hotel and Spa but Spa was one hot tub that was never on and a tiny gym - no list of spa treatments as you would expect. Only one key room available for 2 people - despite asking for second key - never got one Restaurant - not much choice for food […] - was told we would get free lunch as missed our dinner on first night - they dont do lunch only by pool.

Good location for visiting the historical and archaeological sites of Rhodes, though the hotel also faces a beach and is close to a variety of restaurants. Some features of the hotel are a little dated and tired.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Black clouds in a Blue Sky"
Very disappointing. Booked 7 nights and the room was filthy. The carpet was absolutely black with huge stains. This dirt i assume has built up over the summer months and not been attended to. The stairways between the floors were the same.My son in an adjoining room fared better with a laminated floor but his shower cubicle collapsed and water flooded […] through the ceiling from the A/C unit when it was switched on. Otherwise fairly spacious room,plenty of mirrors/wardrobes etc. In room bar prices very reasonable. Reception staff very helpful. Breakfast- very basic cheap food- including sub standard bacon/sausages/bread/orange juice etc. They must have been the cheapest around to buy. Didn't try the evening meals priced at 8 euros for a buffet, but it seemed repetitive.Overall, a thumbs down and really only a 2 star hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
IT WAS OK. The room was alright. Was told on arrival that we had been upgraded by the hotel to a sea view, but that was already arranged when we booked. The bathroom/toilet was very small and the shower cubicle was really tight. Breakfast was reasonable but not great. The carpet was dirty in the room. The TV was small and the channels were limited. […] Amenities were ok. Location for the beach was great approx 50 meters Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy access to old. Town and beach"

"Hotel bien positionné"
L'hotel est bien placé juste en face de la plage, à proximité des commerces, à 5 minute à pied du centre ville et à peine 10 minutes de la vieille ville.

"Gutes Hotel am Meer in Stadtnähe"
Wir haben uns im Blue Sky Hotel sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Hotelpersonal ist bemerkenswert freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Zimmer sind modern möbliert und sauber. Wir hatten ein DZ mit Meerblick gebucht, von dem wir jeden Abend den herrlichsten Sonnenuntergang beobachten konnten. Das Hotel liegt an einem langen Kieselstrand, davor ein recht stark befahrene […] Straße, doch wenn die Balkontüren geschlossen sind, stört der Verkehr den Schlaf überhaupt nicht. Die Bushaltestelle zum Flughafen ist direkt vor dem Hotel und man ist in 20 min dort. Die Stadt und die alte Stadt, Hafen und Busbahnhof sind in Laufnähe. Es wäre nur schön, wenn man freies Wlan auf den Zimmern hätte, aber man muss den Internetzugang zahlen... eine halbe Stunde 1 Euro, als wir dort waren. Mit meinem Kindl konnte ich allerdings garnicht ins Internet und habe deshalb die Pc's in der Hotelhalle benutzt. Das Frühstück ist sehr reichhaltig und gut - kurz und gut, wir würden jederzeit wieder hier wohnen. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"lindo hotel, frente a la playa"
mi experiencia no fue buena, alquile una habitacion con vista al mar, por la cual pague una diferencia. Cuando llegamos al hotel nos dijeron que no podian darnos esa habitacion porque el huesped anterior habia decidido quedarse 1 noche mas, cosa que evidentemente no es cierto, pues la mitad de las habitaciones del hotel tienen vista al mar. Es un hotel […] de 4 estrellas y cobran por todos los servicios, wifi por ejemplo que es gratis hasta en las cafeterias y cobrar (20 euros) por el uso de una caja fuerte que esta en la habitacion, no se corresponde con un hotel de categoria Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Blue Sky Hotel"
Cheap hotel, put us in a room with dirty threadbare carpet. After asking for an upgrade we were placed in a better room but nothing special. Carpeting in hallways and decorations show signs of wear and look like they have been around for too long. You have to pay extra for internet and for a safe in the room which seems...to suit the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

Vi bodde här två nätter och kände tillområdet innan. Vi blev förvånade när det endast fanns en minibar på rummet och där fick vi inte ställa in våra vattenflaskor eller egen inhandlad öl.

Eluttagen fanns inte heller, när vi skulle ladda telefonerna fick vi dra ur tv jacket […] eller minibaren det fanns inga lediga uttag. Rummet var stort och välstädat.

"BOKA INTE DETTA HOTELL !"
Arrogant och osympatisk personal i receptionen. Väldigt trafikstört p.g.a. en stor rondell och en starkt trafikerad gata precis utanför (vilket reklambilderna inte visar). Det s.k. gymet och s.k. spa var ett eländigt källarutrymme, som de dessutom skulle ha extra betalt för.Frukosten var inte heller speciellt kul.

"La location ideale per una vacanza da sogno!"
La scelta del Blue Sky è stata davvero azzeccata! ci siamo trovati benissimo. La stanza affacciava sul retro ma era luminosissima e, passando tanto tempo fuori, nemmeno ti accorgi di non poter vedere il tramonto (consiglio di scendere alle 19.45 per godervelo direttamente dalla spiaggia di fronte all'hotel!). Il servizio buono, qualità del cibo alta, […] tutte le cene sono state abbastanza variegate e con menu internazionali, ce n'era per tutti i gusti, dai piatti tipici greci ai soliti roastbeef! Le camere sempre pulitissime e anche il servizio in piscina impeccabile: un piccolo bar garantisce il godimento di ogni tipo di bevande! BUONE VACANZE A RODI!!! ps: la posizione è davvero delle migliori, a piedi si può andare dovunque, in centro, alla città vecchia, al porto... non abbiamo mai affittato macchina o scooter (solo per andare a visitare Lindos..ne valeva la pena!). baci a tutti Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"No es uhn hotel de 4 estrellas"
En absoluto se puede conceptuar como 4 estrellas (2, y con buena voluntad). Positivo: -Las vistas al mar desde la habitación (que había sido contrada con dichas características) eran muy bonitas. - Esta muy cerca, caminando, de la parte antigua. - En frente, cruzando la carretera hay una playa, de cantos rodados y si se sigue por el paseo marítimo se […] llega, en 5 minutos a la playa principal de la ciudad que es de guijarros. Negativo: - La mayor parte de las habitaciones tienen una moqueta terriblemente sucia y muy antigua. Nosotras, después de protestar en recepción, conseguimos cambiarnos a una con suelo de laminado. - El baño era diminuoto, con una ducha mínima. La taza del watwer dw plástico y el estado decrépito. - Los domingos no limpian la habitación, hay un letrero en la puerta del ascensor en donde lo comunican (he hecho un foto, si les interesa me la solicitan) A la correspondiente protesta se nos indicó que ese servicio deberíamos haberlo contratado con la agencia de viajes. - - Tampoco cambiaban las toallas. tras la correspondiente protesta, si las cambiaron todos los días. -El cambio de sábanas era casa dos días, exceto, claro los domingos. - Dessayono muy poble y básico (2, 3 estrellas, pero no 4) En definitiva deberían de cambiarle la calificación para no inducir a errores Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Could have been better"
07/24/14 TimeTravel364 Brackley, United Kingdom
Arrived about midnight, checked in and went to room and straight to sleep,room was clean on arrival. Woke up next morning,our room was at rear of hotel (301) the view was very poor ,over looked apartments where there was a dog kept on a balcony all day and night with view of its dog mess,there was also a bird/s nesting on our balcony,and at no time during our stay was the mess cleaned up. Our room was not cleaned on one day,when I asked for towels so we could shower I was told I had to wait until 6pm until a maid comes on shift to bring us a towel and service our room,also you will not have your room serviced on Sunday !as they do not 'offer' a maid service on Sundays, really in this day and age and during high season. All staff were very polite,and the restaurant staff were very helpful,the only issue I found was there was one very rude guy on the reception,unshaven and unhelpful just no customer care. Food was okay,could be hotter, but plenty to pick from( Dinner /Breakfast ) So all in all , staff were very polite ( apart from one guy on the reception) Bedroom was clean and quite , bathroom was okay could do with some new seal around the shower bath area as it is starting to look worn, Food was okay.
"Nice hotel, Nice staff but expensive internet"
07/05/14 Graham G Manchester, United Kingdom
Blue Sky is a lovely hotel, Well situated, Lovely staff, Food is good but not much british menus. The biggest gripe is that you have to pay for internet. Go to any bar in Rhodes And Its free, WHY DO WE HAVE TO PAYFOR INTERNET WHEN WEVE PAID A LOT OF MONEY TO STAY HERE
"Nice place to stay"
07/01/14 MagicBruce Paris
Room is acceptable even if bathroom is really too small. Completely impossible to have a shower without flooding everything! People is very nice and helpful, till you stay at the hotel... Location is also fine. Beach is 50 meters by foot. ;) The quality/price ratio is correct.
06/22/14 john h Newcastle, United Kingdom
Arrived at the hotel late at night met by a very nice man ( every night we came in have a good chat with him ), prompt in getting the key cards. Did not book a sea view room but decided to see what the room at the back of the hotel was like, if poor we would then pay for an upgrade. The room was large, plenty of storage space, table and 2 chairs in the room and on the balcony, good sized safe ( 30 euros/2weeks 10 euros deposit ), the bathroom was a little small but adequate. Our view was of other apartments, but was not in the sun so was fairly cool, and with the a/c working well (free) had no problems with heat, it was also very quiet during the night as we had no noise from the road or from bar street which is very close to the end of the hotel. Our friend was in one of these rooms and was moved after 3 nights as unable to get any rest. We decided not to move. There is a mini-bar in the room, which is ideal if arriving late as it stocks bottles of water, reasonably priced. The restaurant was fairly small and queues built up at peak times, however the manager did a good job in getting people seated, there was 6 of us but he always got us together, the longest wait was 10mins, the staff were very good. Catering for umpteen nations is not easy in a small hotel but we found the the food was of good standard, with an adequate choice. The pool area was very small and usual problems with sun beds. Eating around the pool was good and decent prices. We liked to use the beach (very stoney but once in the water it was sandy, sandels required), turning left outside the hotel approx 300mts, 2 sunbeds and shade 8euros, 50cent coin required for toilets, Opposite the beach there are a few cafes, supermarkets and a good money exchange (1.19euros/pound no commission ) At times we used the Hotel Belverdere for our lunch by using the underpass from the beach, ideal if no 50 cent coins for the toilet. Overall we found the hotel was in a good position, close to the beach, not amongst the shops, 15mins walk to the harbour and old town. The staff are very good will try their utmost to please, If you have a late flight going home, a shower room can be booked at reception on the day of leaving

The reception was ok . They help us a lot with our rooms !!! We went to the room and was old . The food was very bad and the service worst ! Not polite at all ! Also the "free-internet" wasn't so free cause you must take cards that they even don't have the 1 or 2 € cards
"Great hotel and very friendly staff"
06/07/14 Delilah43 Ruthin, United Kingdom
My husband and I stayed here two weeks ago, from the moment we arrived we were treated very well, nothing too much trouble. The restaurant staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a balcony room it was a good size it was kept clean and tidy, plenty of room to keep my wheelchair, but bathroom a bit small but managed fine. The only thing was that beds and towels were not changed on a Sunday. Food was very good plenty of variety morning and evening. Hotel in good location having stayed in Rhodes Town on many occasions since early 1990's in different hotels. The only criticism the lift very small. Would certainly stay here again. This is a wheelchair friendly hotel in a good location.
"Friendly staff-Hotel itself is average"
06/06/14 Leja B London, United Kingdom
Me and my mum went on holiday in late may for a week to this hotel. Upon our arrival, we were straight away greeted with friendly staff. We had booked a city view room, which we knew was horrible but we weren't fussy, however the lady had upgraded us to a sea view e room for the same price! (Let me just add, this may not be the case for everybody-especially if your going around a busy time. Late may is a perfect time to go-not too hot, not too cold and not too many people). The room is pretty poor in my opinion. The worst is the shower. I'm an average body type, and even i found the shower difficult at first. You may get used to it. The comfort of the beds were also average. In the wardrobe there were spare blankets-if you didn't want them you could but them under the sheets and make the bed a little softer. There was a mini fridge but we never used it. Items found in there that were not belonging to the hotel were thrown out when the cleaning ladies came in. The TV was definitely the smallest thing i have ever seen-but holiday isn't about watching TV anyway. If you are considering this hotel, please bring a hairdryer because the one at the hotel practically doesn't do anything. WiFi is available- around 2 euros per hour. As reading other reviews, we got the breakfast only instead of Half Board and we are so glad we did. The hot food at breakfast was always scrambled eggs, baked beans, bacon and boiled eggs. Most of this tasted horrible. Thankfully, i am a person who prefers cold food or breakfast. There was fresh bread, ham, salami, cheese and so on. Fresh fruit were also available. There was also yogurt, cereal,croissants and other snacks such as (roasted?) bananas and biscuits. The guests at the hotel were mostly older aged-no children in sight. This was very pleasing to be honest as there were no loud late nights and kids running around everywhere screaming. Most of all what pleased me was the location;perfect distance from the old and new town. The beach across the road was windy on most days, but some days you can catch a good day but you will be sitting there burning;even with sun cream. So, to sum it all up, our holiday was absolutely lovely but the hotel was one tiny minor letdown. The walk to the harbour is only one (long) road away, which can take you to lots of other lovely beaches e.g. Lindos (strongly recommend to go there).
"Unhappy about some details"
06/02/14 Lady_touch Kaunas, Lithuania
The guys in reception were not patient and friendly when some problems occurred. At least everything was solved. In the restaurant I got very insulted because one lady (who works in service) near our table loudly told some not very nice note about us in Greek language ( well I understand this language). I see such things like very impolite and unpropriate in the restaurant of hotel. Good things ; great room service, calm and nice pool, nice food, friendly other stuff in restaurant, amazing view, near the center, huge bathroom.
