Hotel Review

Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese islands, has a beautiful, medieval town centre which is now listed as a World Heritage Site. The town's history means that local culture draws on Turkish, Greek and Jewish heritage. With beautiful beaches close by, it is an idyllic location for holidaymakers who like to add a cultural element to a seaside getaway. Nestled just within the gate that marks the entrance to the old town is Kókkini Porta Rossa. The hotel sits within a lovingly restored 14th-century knight's residence. The Greek owners have made the most of the building's original features, leaving stone walls exposed and dressing the hotel with local antiques and artefacts. Guests will feel like they are stepping back in time when staying in one of the hotel's luxurious suites; there is plenty of attention to detail, with a 'fragrance bar' and decanters instead of a mini-bar. Design touches like the Art Nouveau headboard in the Orhan Suite give this hotel a stylish finish. A traditional Greek menu is on offer at the restaurant, and guests can enjoy dinner in the pretty courtyard. A unique heritage hotel.
