Overview

About the property

An ideal little romantic hideaway!

Live the magic of the Old Medieval Town of Rhodes in a unique location amongst the arched narrow alleys and traditional architecture dating back to the era of the Knights. (1476K10000475501 EOT)

Situated in a delightful little back street off the beaten track, with a two minute walk from the well known Socrates Street of the Old Town and only ten minutes on foot to the centre of lively new town of Rhodes and picturesque Mandraki harbour as well as the fine local beaches.

Discover the exciting Mediterranean restaurants whilst meandering through the small cobbled stone streets of the Old Town as well as boutique shops, modern bars and coffee shops, bustling tourist shops, delicious gelaterias and walled gardens hidden from view. A walk up on the walls or even around the moat, along the Street of the Knights or a stroll through the Grand Master’s Palace is all part of the experience!

With respect to the world heritage site recognized worldwide, this property in the Medieval Town of Rhodes has been renovated with loving care offering all the essential elements of a modern home including air conditioning and wi-fi, without losing any of its traditional aura.

An ideal little romantic hideaway suitable for a couple or a small family, in a peaceful location and yet so central. It has one double bedroom and a settee bed in the sitting room, sleeping another two people and one bathroom. Bed linen and towels are provided for four persons. Three satellite televisions are available, one in the bedroom, one in the cosy sitting room and one in the entrance seating area next to the kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with all essentials necessary for cooking whilst on holiday as well as a washing machine, ironing board and iron. The bathroom offers a shower with solar heated water which is plentiful.

The Medieval Old Town of Rhodes is a pedestrian area only therefore vehicles are not permitted for visitors, only permanent residents. Parking areas can be found outside of the many gates entering the Old Town.

Superb Apartment right in the heart of Rhodes Old Town!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my girlfriend had a lovely stay in this apartment. The owner Faith was fantastic at helping us organise our trip and there were loads of leaflets and booklets about things to do whilst in Rhodes in the apartment too.

The location couldn't have been better, as it's nice and quiet at the apartment but still right in the heart of the old town. It is a stones throw from the centre of the Rhodes Old Town, with loads of brilliant bars and restaurants. I recommend researching the restaurants and booking them in advance to get a good one. Our favourite was Sissitio, which is probably the closest restaurant to the apartment. Other good ones were, Jivino and Auvergne Café. One to avoid is Socratous Garden, as nice as it looks the food is terrible and staff weren't friendly. The beach is a little further away, but not out of walking distance at about 15mins, it's also a nice walk through the old town and across the sea front.

The interior of the apartment was very cosy, comfortable and incredibly pretty, the pictures do not lie! It had all the facilities we needed, even the wifi was pretty fast! The shower was a good temperature and powerful too, which is always nice.

I recommend you do a boat trip (if you don't get sea sick) one day as it's a really nice way to see the surrounding beaches, which are much quieter than Elli beach. If you do go to Elli beach, the east side is much noisier with music playing and lots of people and places to eat, and the east side is much quieter with more space and no music. Depends what you prefer.

I did forget an item when leaving the apartment and Faith kindly posted it back to my address in the UK, so I am grateful for that, thank you!

Couldn't have had a more pleasant stay!

Thanks!

Leo

Cosy hideaway in Old Town

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 5 days in Rhodes Old Town staying in this cosy property. Located away from the busy streets it is quiet and away from the noise, but still very much within walking distance to the town´s attractions. The apartment was clean, well decorated and well equipped, with an excellent kitchen. The washing machine in particular was especially convenient! The feel of the apartment was very much in tune with the atmosphere of the Old Town with the original medieval stone staircase apparently intact. There are candles everywhere!

There is a good WiFi connection available everywhere except the kitchen and bathroom due to the thick walls, and the high ceilings and air conditioning helped keep the property at a pleasant temperature. The bed was quite hard, which suits some better than others! Luckily there are plenty of cushions to steal from the sofas for those who struggle with hard mattresses. The only thing this property lacked was a dedicated outdoor space, like a balcony.

Faith, the property manager, was extremely helpful throughout the booking and stay. She replied very fast to emails (often within minutes), answering all our questions and making sure our holiday was as convenient as possible. At the day of arrival, Faith met us at an easily found location in Old Town and showed us to the property, which would otherwise have been a struggle. She found a car rental company in town for us when we wanted to rent a car. We were allowed to stay as long as we needed to on our department day. There is a little folder containing information about the apartment along with recommendations for restaurants in Rhodes Town.

Overall, very charming apartment and extremely good value for money - far superior quality to a hotel for this price.

Liebevoll renoviertes Haus in ruhigem Teil der Altstadt von Rhodos

  • 5 of 5

In einer ruhigen kleinen Seitenstraße, unweit vom Glockenturm, gelegenes kleines Ferienhaus. Auf 2 Stockwerke verteilt ist alles da was man für einen erholsamen Urlaub benötigt.

Wir waren mit 4 Personen (2 Erwachsene, 2 Kinder 11+14 Jahre) dort. Dies entspricht der Max. Belegung. Im Wohnzimmer steht eine Couch. Der untere Teil ist komplett ausziehbar, wodurch man ein vollständig getrenntes 4.Bett (ordentlicher Lattenrost) erhält. Das Wohnzimmer ist dann als solches weniger zu gebrauchen. Uns hat das nicht gestört, waren eh nur zum schlafen dort.

Im EG sind Küche und Bad. Duschen für Personen größer 1,85m ist nur gebückt möglich. Dies empfanden wir als einzigen Nachteil des Hauses. Achja...und die Altstadt ist Autofrei. Man muß also die Koffer recht weit tragen, da ziehen auf dem Kiespflaster quasi nicht möglich ist.

In dieser Region der Altstadt sind recht viele Häuser unbewohnt bzw. verfallen. Dies hatte für uns aber nichts negatives, sollte man aber wissen.

Das Haus liegt in einer Sackgasse, deshalb sehr ruhig! Ideal um morgens ein Kaffee vor dem Haus zu trinken und die Seele baumeln zu lassen. Ausreichend Klimatisiert und wirklich liebevoll gestaltet. Wir würden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen !

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. It would be a pleasure to have you all back again in the property especially since you enjoyed it so much and left it spotless of course!! I'm always amazed myself at the peacefullness of the property even though it's right in the centre of the Old Town!

Sehr schönes kleines Haus direkt in der Altstadt

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus befindet sich direkt in der Altstadt, es hat alles was man braucht, ist liebevoll eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Das komplette Haus ist klimatisiert. Wir waren zu Zweit und hatten ausreichend Platz. Der einzige Nachteil ist, dass man die Koffer sehr weit tragen muss, da die Altstadt autofrei ist. Trotz direkter Nähe zum Zentrum, ist es am Haus sehr ruhig. Die Vermieterin ist sehr nett und wir hatten die Möglichkeit so lange im Haus zu bleiben wie wir am Abreisetag wollten, denn unser Flug ging erst am Abend. Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Urlaub auf Rhodos und würden jederzeit wieder kommen.
