The Best Places to Stay in Rhodes Town

  • The Marco Polo Mansion has the ambience of Rhodes' Old Town just right. A lovingly restored Ottoman townhouse with just seven rooms, a stay here is like staying in another time. The walled garden is peaceful and beautiful, the restaurant is good and it's all very romantic.
  • The Rodos Park Suites in the New Town is the polar opposite - bustling, close to the beach and fresh and modern with all the mod. cons., including a large pool and poolside bar.
  • The Zacosta Villa Hotel is a slightly old fashioned, but very charming, three room hotel in central Rhodes. You're close to the museums and the Knight's castle, and though there's not restaurant, you're surrounded by them, and the breakfasts here are excellent.
  • The Nikolis Hotel & Apartments occupies a stunning medieval castle in the centre of town. This is a great place for lovers of detail - there are wooden beamed ceilings, lovely private balconies, stone walls, fourposter beds and a rooftop garden with wonderful views over the town.

The Best Places to Stay on Rhodes for A Special Occasion

  • Lindos Blu sits pretty on the cliffs above Lindos, with spectacular views of the turquoise bay and sugar cube village just a short stroll away. The spa is top of the range and the rooms and suites offer every modern luxury and in some cases your own private pool.
  • The unusually named Fashion Hotel Nikos Takis offers Harem style high-camp glamour hidden away in one of Rhodes' Old Town's historic townhouses. There are just eight rooms, so this is an intimate and very memorable spot with plenty of added extras like jacuzzis and the complimentary use of guitars and accordions with which to serenade your partner…
  • Rodos Palladium is a modern five star hotel right on the beach. This hotel is for you if you're looking for a resort style beach break, but beside a fascinating town. There's a tropical lagoon style pool and gardens, a choice of restaurants and private, ocean-facing balconies.

The Best Places to Stay on Rhodes on a Budget

  • It only has six rooms, so you'll need to book early to reap the great value of the Apollo Guesthouse. The rooms are small, but really charming and well planned, and the leafy courtyard is like your own private refuge from overpriced restaurants and cruise ship crowds. And it's within walking distance to many of the city's major attractions.
  • As well as being reasonably priced, Domus Rodos is a great place to stay for history buffs. This no frills townhouse pension was formerly a stronghold for the Knights of St John of Jerusalem! Only a 10minute walk to the ferry harbour, it's also one of the best places to stay in Rhodes for island-hoppers.
  • The Hotel Andreas has been converted from a charming house in the Old Town of Rhodes. It's got beautiful views over the rooftops and out to sea, a gorgeous leafy terrace and simple, but chic, whitewashed rooms. Very traditional, but very Rhodes.

The Best Places to Stay on Rhodes for Families

  • Modern and close to the beach, the Rodos Park Suites is a comfortable, modern hotel with a full sized pool and all the mod. cons.. The antithesis of 'boutique', this is a classic but comfortable hotel.
  • The Melenos Apartments are a lovely collection of nine suites and studio apartments in Lindos, on the east side of the island. Basic, but with plenty of whitewashed charm, this is a comfortable place to stay for family and groups who're watching their wallets.
  • The In Camera Art Boutique Hotel is another great option for families, with the majority of its six rooms and suites sleeping up to five people. The decor is bright and pale, and rooms have numerous photos - that's where the 'art' and 'camera' of the title come in.
