a nice apartment!
This apartment is located a short 10-15 minute walk to the old City, the port and much of Rhodes' gorgeous waterfront. In the old city, there are many many restaurants, little shops and interesting things to look at. The apartment itself has everything you will need. The bedroom has loads of cupboard space and drawers. The bathroom also has severals shelves and cabinets so there is plenty of storage. The balcony is quite large with 2 chairs, a little table and has glass panels so its nice and bright. This also helps the whole apartment be bright. Both air conditioners work well. The kitchen is a bit on the small side but has everything you will need. The building is quiet, housing offices during the day however the apartment is on a busy street so you will need to contend with traffic noise. Lefteris was a great host. He made himself available and was very quick to respond. We had a late flight out of Rhodes and there was no one booked in the apartment after us so he very kindly allowed us to have a late check out - which was greatly appreciated. He also arranged for a taxi to pick us up when we left. Thanks for everything Lefteris!
Clean & comfortable accommodation in a great location near the Old Town. Lefteris met us at the apartment and showed us the facilities. We had a stress free enjoyable holiday.
Excellent property in a very Greek location.
The apartment is very tidy and modern, set in a very Greek location. Everything that two people would need to have an enjoyable stay in Rhodes is in this apartment. Digital TV with excellent reception and access to some good TV channels. Comfortable seating, comfortable bed, good size balcony (sunny in the morning and in the shade in the hot afternoon) and a well equipped kitchen.
The location is very good, you can easily walk into the Old Town of Rhodes from the apartment. Right hand route takes you along the docks and past the sandy harbor beach outside of the old walls, where you can enter the Old town through various entrances. Or continue towards the new town and its beaches, restaurants, taxi station and bus station. Other way is to turn left and follow the stadium walls until you reach the St Johns gate, go through this and wander the lovely old streets of Rhodes.
Supermarket is literally within 200 yards of the apartment entrance, there is a very good bakery, and a couple of very good restaurants all within easy walking distance of the apartment.
I would recommend spending the day walking from the apartment to visit the site of the Ancient Olympic Stadium and then wandering back into town looking at all of the different housing styles. Also a must, is to walk to the bus station and catch the very regular bus to Lindos Town.
We had an excellent week, made enjoyable because the apartment was so comfortable, and the location of the apartment made it easy to walk to the beach or both the Old Town of Rhodes or the modern Town of Rhodes.
Great base for staying in Rhodes Town
The accommodation is on the first floor of an apartment block on Kanada Street, a fairly busy residential area with many amenities close by. There's a large supermarket literally next door, a greengrocers, several bakeries and snack bars along the street. The apartment is no more than a 10 minute stroll to the old town, and around 20 minutes to the new town. The nearest taxi rank is about two minutes walk but we found that sometimes there were no taxis there. A safer bet is the rank on the harbour, around 10-15 minutes to get to on foot.
There are two beaches nearby. One is at the top of Kanada street and is a 5 minute walk, but it's not the prettiest beach you've ever seen. Instead, a walk of around 10-15 minutes to the southern end of Kanada gets you to a bigger and slightly prettier beach with good shallow water, sunbeds for hire and nearby bars.
The apartment is a good size for two people and there was nothing we were without. The kitchen is a little on the small side, but it's no dealbreaker. There is a balcony with comfy seating and, although looking out onto the main street doesn't provide a gorgeous view, it is still nice to sit out on. The apartment also has a comfortable sofa, good wardrobe space in the bedroom, a nice bed, and a good size bathroom with a decent shower and bath. Forget the TV though, unless greek game shows and soaps are your thing. Thankfully there is adequate wifi.
If I was being picky I'd say that the road noise - especially motorbikes - can be a bit intrusive. But in fairness I think you'd find this anywhere in Rhodes (one of the most irritating things I found about the town was the constant menace of motorbikes razzing around, especially in the old town). But the noise does die down in the evening and well before bed time, so it won't disturb your sleep. We never heard any noise from the other apartments.
Lefteris, the owner is very friendly and helpful and responds quickly to all communication. On our arrival he was there waiting for us and also saw us before we left to make sure everything was ok. Dealing with him was a pleasure.
I'd suggest getting a taxi from the airport to the apartment as it might be hard to find for the first time, especially in the dark. Once you get your bearings it's easy to find your way around.
All in all the accommodation suited our needs perfectly and because of its amenities, its closeness to the old town and nearby facilities I'd have no hesitation in recommending it.
Thank you for the detailed review of your stay. It was a pleasure meeting and hosting you. I am sure next travellers will find your description of the apartment and area most helpful.
All the best.
AMAZING FLAT !!!
I spent a couple of weeks during August 2018. The flat is modern and very well equipped. Aircondition works pretty good and the grocery shop under the apartment is very nice. The owner is always available and very gentle. The apartment is located 10 mins from the old town. I rented a scooter in order to achieve better beaches considering that the ones near Rhodes are not the bests of the island. To conclude I really suggest to reserve a vacation period in this great apartment!!! Five stars!!!! *****
