Well appointed apartment in a lovely little corner of the old town.
A decently-sized flat with all the modern conveniences you'd need, including a very welcome selection of food staples to get you through the first morning. The terrace is a great place to relax and have breakfast and a late afternoon beer. Just outside the flat are three restaurants, a cocktail bar and a little shop all in a nice, quiet part of the old town.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with, the apartment was great value and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place.
Great location and we had provisions provides in fridge even a bottle of wine
Authentic due to living in local community do only down side was the noise at times but it didn’t spoil our holiday
Would happily recommend
Couldn’t have been better
Our stay was fantastic. We arrived late Sunday night and Kostas met us right outside the old town gates. He carried our case and took us to the apartment down a lovely little cobble walkway. The apartment itself was incredible. Identifiable that it was situated in old town with all the required modern features. As well as Kostas being more than welcoming,we was also met with a ‘welcome oackage’ containing bread, milk, cheese, ham, wine etc, this was more than adequate for that night and the morning that followed. The location was fantastic, a minutes walk from the heart of old town but far enough away to be peaceful. The neighbours are a lovely Greek family, a little noisy at times but it was nice to feel that you was around families so we didn’t mind at all. Overall i was more than happy with the location and the apartment itself. Would also like to say a huge thank you to Catherine and Kostas for all there help and ensuring we had an increadible holiday. Will definitely be referring to friends and family.
Great location in old part of Rhodes. Lovely apartment
Location was just ideal with restaurants & bars very close. Local beach near the port literally over the road - no sunbeds so not any shade (but we prefer a non commercialised beach anyway so not a problem for us) We loved the apartment- eggs, cheese, bread, milk & wine very much appreciated. air con v efficient in the bedroom & bed v comfortable. The living room small window is opposite the roof terrace of the lovely restaurant ‘Nimmos’ but there is a net curtain & it really wasn’t a problem. Just remember not to leave the light on when wandering around after a shower etc.. we soon got used to this! The roof terrace was lovely. We tended to come back to eat lunch there. Main drawback for us were the very noisy neighbours- the general chatter of family life was not a problem at all but the noise level at times was something that did spoil our enjoyment of sitting on the private roof terrace. The children were lovely- just seemingly ignored by parents so in particular a little toddler in nappies shrieked for attention & was at times crying constantly. Perhaps the older children having broken up for school holidays meant that we heard them more than other guests. We were only there for a week tho’ & would not have contacted the owner as it would have made things very awkward if the family knew we had complained. The good thing was that we didn’t hear a peep at night time- barking dogs, screaming children all exhausted & so we had a good night’s sleep in our lovely air conditioned room! We didn’t mind the small bathroom- if there were 4 of us I suppose the floor would be swamped after showers but the character of the place & the thrill of living in this fantastic old part of Rhodes made this unimportant.
Superb location and roof terrace.....
Great location, roof terrace superb, all amenities in apartment, AC worked well. Only negative was the noise from the neighbours especially on Saturdays! Did enjoy being in a Rhodian location but the noise was something special and did sometimes mar the relaxing times spent on the roof terrace otherwise would have had 5 stars.
Terrace in the Old Town
The location, in the Old Town and near the port, is excellent. The apartment has a treacherous stairway, but once upstairs I found a kitchen that was well equipped—the owners had left everything necessary for a guest arriving on a Saturday night out of season, when everything was closed (I recommend the nearby restaurant "at" Thomas)—and a spectacular terrace that felt very private. The neighbors were sometimes loud, but at least I knew I was living in an authentic Greek neighborhood. The interior lighting was dim for someone who reads a lot, but that is my only serious complaint. The restaurant across the street puts tables on its rooftop, which might be a problem when the restaurant (Nimmos) is busy, but I would solve that by eating there. Over all, a great place from which to explore Rhodes.
Many thanks for taking the time to write a review we appreciate your feedback, I wish you had mentioned the lighting, if we had known it would have been easy to make the room brighter or add other reading lamps for you.
Regarding the steps up to the apartment we are not able to change them or alter them in any way, as the Medieval Old City is a UNESCO heritage site and therefore it is not allowed by law to change the look of any of the outside areas. However, we wish to thank you for choosing to spend your vacation in Helios apartment, we are pleased you enjoyed you stay!
Very best wishes,
Ideally located with just 300meters to the Habour of Rhodes, a couple of steps from the nearest restaurants and the bars and the New town of Rhodes & Mandraki habour with its lively street cafes and bars just 10minutes stroll! Along the beautiful harbour walkway!
The new marina with its trendy cafes and bars just 5 minutes walk away
The Old City is a UNESCO heritage site and one of the oldest inhabited cities in Europe, surrounded by a castle walls, the beautiful old city has some of the most interesting historical site in Europe with the street of the knights! The Grand Masters Palace!
Within the walls are designer shops and busy souvenir shops, excellent eateries and take always! Tasty ice cream parlors and hidden gardens! The old town is a maze of wonderful alleyways, wandering through the cobblestone streets it takes you back in time with a maze of alleyways you will never tire of this well preserved Old city!
