Excellent location; perfect sea-view and close to all; city center and beach. Big double room with spotlessly cleaning, very good service from the staff all over, nice breakfast. Cold be some noise in the corridors when doors were slammed at night but no big deal.
"Great view and great service!"

We had one week at this hotel. The view is breathtaking and the service in the reception as well as in the bar is GREAT! The rooms are old and need a refurbish. Small bathrooms but tidy and clean.The WIFI is also quite bad. Again a plus for great service!

We had a nice holiday in Rhodes and at the Aquarium view. The hotel has a very nice location (there can be some traffic noise), and its cheap. The rooms are simple, but we spend most of our days at the beach and exploring the city. Rhodes has many places to explore (the old town, shopping street, acropolis, neighbooring towns). We ate our dinners at a new place every night, and there are many to choose from and lots of different specialities. We recommend walking through the old town at suset. The views are memorable.

I went with two friends over the summer and we had a great time! We loved waking up with a full view of the Mediterranean Sea and being able to just walk across the street to the beach. We found the staff to be very helpful, especially when we had questions about getting to and from the other islands. Free breakfast was good. The decor isn't the most up-to-date but we were more interested in the beach than the carpet so it wasn't a big deal. Would definitely stay there again!
"Great location, but ............"

We stayed here for one night as we were unable to stay in a neighbouring hotel for the first night of our holiday. I booked online through the hotel website. We booked this hotel due to its location and were not disappointed with our bedroom's beach-facing balcony. The bedroom was basic, but clean. The kitchenette in the cupboard was a surprise, but looked unused. The bathroom was small but clean, the towels of very good quality and the water was hot. There was an over-powering smell of cleaning fluid throughout the bedroom area. The breakfast room was cramped and uninviting. The totally self-service breakfast was disappointing - wafer thin slices of processed meat and cheese, fresh bread and tired fruit. The tea and coffee were OK, the orange juice reasonable. The hot selection was limited and one of the two waiters on duty that morning was continually adding water to and stirring what looked like grits/porridge. I accept you get what you pay for and the hotel was not expensive. Maybe it was because we stayed at the end of the season, but the hotel, staff and other guests seemed lacklustre and worn out. On the whole it was a depressing experience compared with other Greek hotels I have stayed in.

I've stayed there with my wife and my 5 years old daughter for 5 nights. The Hotel is in the best place of Rodos, very close by foot to the center, but placed in a place that the beach is just 10 meters. I know it is not a new hotel, i know that it is not the best in town, but it is the best for the money i gave. A/C works great, breakfast is ok, internet acces is available to the Hotel and in the rooms for free and with very good signal, the staff is more than friendly, beach is in every side of the Hotel, city center, bars, restaurants are within walking distance of 4 minutes, the rooms are clean , ok, i agree the Hotel is not 4 star, it is not new, ok...so what? It is so many other things that worth the money. That's my opinion. Hello everybody.

There is a better alternative: commit a crime, give yourself up and spend a few nights in jail. Much preferable than staying in this hotel. Breakfast consists of sausages that were produced before Elizabeth became queen, the cleaners start cleaning and rearranging the furniture at 6am (when I thought I could sleep), internet access is advertized but not available. The rooms are small and the furniture has taken a minimalist approach, the noise from the beach keeps you awake until the cleaners come in.
"GREAT SEA VIEW BUT THE OVERALL SERVICE IS NOT OF A 4STAR HOTEL"

The location is the best. You can access the old town, shops, beach, casino, everything is within a walking distance. You can see and hear the sea from your balcony and swim just in 2 seconds! The highest the floor, the less noise you get from the street and the beach. Definitely the greatest location to enjoy the island! Now apart from the location, I was not satisfied by the hotel services and their politeness. The staff in the reception was not helpful and not polite at all. Although they say the internet is free, I never managed to get access. I could navigate from my cell while I was on the beach using others free wi fi but back to the hotel it never worked. I mentioned the problem to the reception, she told me that they would solve the technical problem but they never did. The cleaning was awful. They only come to clean every 2 days and only until 14:30. Because of their fault they didn’t come to our room for 2 consecutive days and left us with no toiled paper! I had to argue with the reception in order to send somebody to clean the mess and change the garbage! Another great problem was with the bathroom where there was no window and no ventilation at all! That means that if you wanted to use it you really had a problem with the smells..... Furthermore the water after 8pm was never too hot. When we left the room they didn’t even ask me if was satisfied….

Staying at the Aquarium View Hotel was a very nice experience. The view is actually very fine, because the location very close to the northern tip of Rhodes is just great. Just a few steps and you are on the Elli beach. The rooms are nice and comfortable with free air condition, the breakfast is very good, and you are not really bothered by traffic noise, and you are also away from the night life, that some (young) people apparently prefer to a good holiday with all sorts of pleasures in the day time!

Spent one week with two teenagers (17 yrs). The location could not have been better. Close to shopping, close to night clubs, easy to get a taxi, or car rental. Grocery store and pharmacie near by, One side of town is windy, the other, not as much. We were on the side that was not so windy. The beach is a meer 50 feet from the hotel. Lots and lots of beach chairs/umbrellas to rent (4 E per day and free if you go on one of the boat rides before lunch. By boat rides I mean parasailing, ringos etc. These are located right in front of the hotel on the beach,) The hotel was clean and, as said before, the staff were wonderful. The rooms, however, left alot to be desired. One-person only bathrooms. And barely one person. Our bathroom door would not open all the way because of the toilet. The showerhead was practically useless. You could feel the springs in the bed. Both my husband and son nearly knocked themselves out while bending over sitting on the toilet and hitting their heads on the sink! The hotel is quite run down but I stress, it is clean. This is a fabulous hotel if you are on a budget. Although, there are other hotels in the area (even the Aqurium sister hotel next door) that are much nicer and not too much more money. If money really is an important factor, stay at Aquarium. Just don't have high expectations for decor and amenities. Think of it as a place to sleep only. Have fun!
