Don't book if you're needing accessibility. They say it's accessible but it's not! My small mobility scooter couldn't even fit in the lift! They lent me a large cumbersome heavy standard hotel wheelchair which skinned my arms and left me in pain, when I tried to move it. Then there's the rooms, awful disabled facilities. Toilet too low, shower unreachable, towels unreachable, sink to high, not enough grabrails, sharp angles, ramps to steep, bed difficult to transfer, rooms just too small.
Hotel was great...5 mins to tourist port for all the island boat trips, 5 mins other way to beach and 10 mins from old town. Couldn't be better. Food street 2 mins away. Plenty of eateries in the area. Room was big and decent bathroom. Breakfast was good. Hot and cold selection. Staff were lovely . Very helpful and friendly.
Decent hotel with good location near the beach, restaurants, shops and old town. Definitely worth of money. Staff are mostly a bit stiff, but just ask and they will help you. Room was clean and the bed was good, there's also small fridge for snacks in the room. I'd stay here again when visiting Rodos town.
We stayed 4 nights end of May. The hotel is centrally located & max 10 min walk to everywhere, the old town, the coastal promenade as well as good restaurants. Well appointed generous sized rooms ( ours was 507, top floor overlooking the pool, with just a narrow balcony room for 1 chair). Very good air con, & great bed. Breakfast buffet was standard chain hotel fair in a bright & airy dining room with outdoor seating. Seating around the pool was tight but the pool wasn’t our hangout. Overall perfect for our needs & great value.
One of the first things that fascinated me after we had checked into this hotel by the efficient and friendly reception team, was to look down on the hotel pool from our balcony on the fifth floor, to see swifts skimming the hotel pool. From that moment I knew we were going to enjoy our week in Rhodes and the Best Western Plaza. This is a well kept and well run hotel with very friendly and helpful staff, our room, on the top floor, was not the largest we have stayed in but a reasonable size, nicely laid out and kept clean. The balcony was narrow with two chairs, but when in such a fascinating place as Rhodes who wants to hang around on a balcony when the historic Rhodes old town is waiting to be explored. Finding your way into the old town at first is a bit of a puzzle, but we soon worked it out and spent a lot of time there exploring the historic buildings, medieval walls, castle and back alleys, not to forget the numerous bars and shops. With the Plaza being in the heart of Rhodes and close proximity to the old town wherever we wanted to go was little more than a short walk, this hotel really is ideally situated. When adventuring around Rhodes became hot and tiring work, it was good to return to the Plaza to laze on one of the sun beds provided and cool off in the nice sized pool. Although busy around the pool we could always find a couple of sun beds, and when we were ready for refreshment the hotel pool bar would provide us with a cold beer or other drinks as well as snacks, ice creams and cooked food by the welcoming pool bar staff. We had booked half board for our stay, so ate breakfast and our evening meals in the hotel restaurant, which had seating both inside and outside. For both breakfast and our evening meals there was a good choice of hot and cold foods from the buffet. Again, like everyone else in the hotel, the restaurant staff were friendly and efficient. Before our evening meal and then later, after we had returned from visiting the old town, we would sit in the hotel bar and enjoy a drink served by the smiling barman who soon got to know our order. There were always a number of locals who used the bar, which was obviously a popular place for them and a good sign it was the right place to enjoy a late night ouzo. One of the highlights for us at this hotel were the near tame sparrows who would hop around close to our feet when having a drink at the pool bar, they would perch on the back of the chairs just a couple of feet away looking to see if there were any treats for them. Like the swifts who no doubt return each years, so we will too when the chance arrives. You do not have to be a bird brain to want to enjoy a stay at this really nice welcoming hotel.
The location of this hotel is excellent. 25 minutes or less in a taxi from the Airport. 10 minutes walk south brings you to the Medieval City. Less than 10 minutes north brings you to Elli beach. Nearby numerous bars, cafe's and restaurants. I found the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff of this hotel a cut above the norm. Impressed with the nice spacious and airy restaurant and the size of the bedroom. The food was excellent with a good variety of choice for breakfast and dinner. There is a swimming pool, a jacuzzi and a bar.Space for sun beds is limited so you must like your neighbour. On the negative side, there can be noise at night as the hotel sits on two roads. The bathroom could do with a make over as it was a bit tatty. Would I return? yes most definitely.
Visited this hotel late in May. We has two rooms, one for my wife and I and one for my adult son. The rooms were of a reasonable size, though the bathroom was a bit small. We had rooms on the street side and found them quiet. The beds were comfortable and the fridge and tea making facilities were appreciated. The flat screen tv had two English speaking channels. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The pool was relaxing and we found no problem in finding sun beds. Some were too close to each other, but this was expected as the pool, though of a good size, was not of the magnitude one finds in resorts. The poll bar was efficient and provided an excellent lunch menu. Breakfast was excellent , providing for all tastes (their were quite a few different nationalities as guests - French , German, Scandinavian and, of course, British). We ate one evening meal in the hotel. This was not of the standard we had expected. To be honest we did not try again, though it appeared some of the older guests ate there every night. Not to fear though, the hotel is very near a variety of bars and restaurants. The location of the hotel is supreme. Leave the hotel and turn right you are very near bars and restaurants. Turn left, go to the end of the road, near the harbour, turn left for the beach, turn right for the old town. Leave the hotel go left and the immediately right, ie round the corner, follow that road to more shops and restaurants and another approach to the old town. Rhodes town is lively and interesting. The hotel is comfortable, especially after a day on the beach, a day exploring or a day on a sea trip. Enjoy
This hotel was recommended by the people we stayed with on Symi. The hotel is very near the port to catch the ferry to Symi. We are returning to the hotel at the end of our stay for the same reason. You need an overnight stay at the beginning and end of the trip if you are staying on Symi to be able to Co ordinate the flights and ferry crossing.
Very helpful stuff, very good location of the hotel (near the center of the city and the Old Town Castle), excellent facilities (lobby, pool, front desk, restaurant with very good food), very clean rooms.
A very good location in town,close to old rhodes and elli beach. We had half board,breakfast very good ,evening meal ok. Room is clean, bath VERY SMALL! .although in town very quiet at night so slept well.Staff attend promptly to any needs you may have and very polite.Only thing annoying was from a large hotel you would expect english channels which they dont have,strange as we had come from much smaller hotel that could.Pool very clean with jacuzzi ,which was lovely. Bar prices very reasonable. All in all an ideal hotel from which to explore the city.
