"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
"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.

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).

"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

Just returned from a weeks stay at the Blue Sky Hotel, I know some of the reviews have not been so kind but we found the hotel to be nothing but pleasant. When we arrived we were given a free upgrade to a sea view room (I had emailed them to ask if one was available in advance). The guy on reception was nothing but polite and helpful and greeted us with a smile and a cheery " hi girls, how was your night" every time we returned, as was all the staff at this hotel, I think it unfair that some of the reviews say "everyone" was horrid and unhelpful as we did not find this to be the case, the staff were always friendly and very helpful. The rooms were of a good size with 2 wardrobes and quite a good size bathroom and lovely balcony. The pool area was very nice and as long as we did not lig in bed we never had a problem getting a sun bed. The hotel is in a very good location (all be it on the windy side of the island), don't let this put you off as once your off the main road, the wind does drops to a gentle breeze that you will be greatfull for in the summer months as it is very hot. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk to the old town which is beautiful and full of restaurants, bars, ice-cream parlours and lots and lots of shops, you can spend hours walking through the cobbled streets of the castle walls, the atmosphere has a real buzz feel to it. All in all we had a great stay at the Blue Sky Beach and would not hesitate to return in the future, if you want a nice hotel in a great location, close to the beach, bars and restaurants then this is hotel is a great choice.
"never come back to this hotel"
08/21/14 Mihaela I Iasi, Romania
The hotel is not a 4*, maybe 2 or 3*. Everything was poor there, but the location was good. I was very disappointed by the room, the furniture very old, bed uncomfortable and the view was at some horrible buildings in the back. At the 5th floor, always, day and night we can hear a noise made by an engine, or something, I don’t know. Anyway, was very annoying. The towels are very, very old and used, turned into grey. I asked maid to change them, but she gave me the same used towels back. The remote control was “beyond crap”. You have to pay for the internet, is not free! The staff is mostly unfriendly and not very polite. The maid took from the minibar a bottle of Jack Daniels and put me to pay the bill. Of course I refused that, and I complained to the manager, which clearly, is not a professional manager. The food was good and the staff from the bar and restaurant was nice and helpful. I never come back to this hotel! They can ruin your holyday!
"good hotel, great location"
08/18/14 Bojan D Ljubljana, Slovenia
Hotel was good but definitely not a 4*. Room was small but nice and clean and the view was amazing. Location of the hotel is great-beach just across the street(it's always windy and less popular but you can go to Elli beach (less windy and more popular) which is just 10 min away), old town is also very close. There's like a party street near with a lot of bars and clubs so plenty of night life options near. Food was really good, plenty of choice especially for dinner. Staff if really friendly and nice (the same as everyone else on the island). The two things that i really didn't like were that you have to pay for wifi and gym (Whaaaaaat?! I've never seen that you have to pay for wifi in a hotel before). Luckily there was a public Rhodes Island wifi in our room as well. Overall the vacation was amazing.
"Max three star hotel"
08/13/14 Nikoleta B
When booking bare in mind this is a three star hotel at max. Then you would not remain disappointed by the poor state of the room, the rather unfriendly stuff (even though this could always come as a shock) and the overall atmosphere of the hotel. If you are a 15 year-old coming to Rhodes to party then it might be just the place for you as it is just next to Bar Street all the teenagers go out to party. Otherwise, avoid at all costs.

Our first night in our "TINY" Room was awful, beds like rock and you could just about fit past the sink to get to the toilet. We told them the problem and they gladly moved us to a bigger room. Sea view is gorgeous so long as you dont look right to the unkept mess. Hotel food was fabulous, plenty of choice. Staff are very accommodating.
"Basic but very good for location"
08/11/14 BarryRowley1969 Ashington, United Kingdom
We had a week here and found it a basic Hotel but great for what we needed . We had a sea view which you get fantastic sunset views. The breakfasts were ok but not the best ever but enough to get by on. The hotel is clean and my girlfriend did inspect it very very hard . The hotel staff were very helpful and hard working and Michael who works nites on reception was 5* he is wasted in there and should be working for one of the top resorts. The pool was short on sunbeds but it is a pleasant place to be. There is not a lot of English that stay here but there is a Red Lion Pub at the top of bar street if you want to meet people. There is a Restaurant called Tamam it is family run and get packed out its 100 yards away next to a church shop go there it is cheap but the food is the best we had by a mile.
08/09/14 John O Liverpool, United Kingdom
Just returned from our holiday in Rhodes staying at the blue sky hotel, Rhodes town. Started of drastically by finding out we did not have a sea view room which we had all paid extra for. The rooms we were allocated had views similar to a war zone at the rear. The staff were very unhelpful when we tried to explain we had already paid extra, but if we would pay another 10 euros per day she could accommodate us another room which had a sea view. One stage we were told there was not any sea view rooms but if we coughed up more money they suddenly appeared. We agreed to pay the amount required but had to check everyday until rooms become available. Ultimately none became available. The room we were allocated had flies coming through the ventilation system. Every night I had to go in the bathroom and kill them before my wife entered the room. We ended up having to get washed in another fallibly members room were it was not as bad. One night I counted 27 flies that I had to exterminate. The manager came to investigate this issue and just commenced killing them with his forefinger. Absolutely disgusting. He still would not allocate us another room. It was pointed out to us by another party that it was an English thing. Apparently English holiday makers are stigmatised as trouble makers and are not welcome. We would not allow the ill treatment we were subjected to ruin our holiday so we all grinned and bearded it but it was our overall consensus that the Blue sky hotel would not be a destination we would ever choose again. To all the people reading this review I can only advise you to re-consider your decision to choose this hotel as it may possibly ruin your whole holiday which is quite unfair considering the astronomical prices that you get charged.
"A nice stay"
08/07/14 raver09 doncaster
This hotel is clean, spacious and quite modern. We found all the staff to be very helpful apart from one lady who was walking around in jeans and an orange top. We could not find the courtesy room before leaving the hotel, we opened a door to look for it and she shouted at us and spoke to us very rudely. She then told us she couldn't understand our accent and was very unpleasant towards us - I don't even know who she was. Breakfast wasn't amazing but it was ok. The rooms are very spacious and clean and free aircon is great. The only problem was that there wasn't a single plug socket spare to use so we had to unplug the tv and it was very awkward taking it in turns to charge phones and iPods. The location is good although you need to be really careful when crossing the road outside the hotel as they drive like absolute maniacs and do not stop for the crossings outside the hotel. The old town is beautiful, it is a 15 min walk or 7 Euroes in the taxi. The food at dinner time was ok. Overall this is a nice hotel but nothing too fancy. Also it seems to attract more Swedish and Russian people and it was very annoying when Greek people would come and use the sunbeds which there are hardly any of. They are clearly not paying and it left us sat on chairs!
"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"

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
