    Location 5.5 /10

    The Semiramis is located in a popular district of the new city, on the west coast of Rhodes, on Metaxa Street, running alongside the large park where the old hospital is situated. The long beach that extends from Ixia to "Elli", via Farapoula, is about 330 feet from the hotel.
    On the northern tip of the island, a stone's throw away from the coast of Turkey, the medieval town of Rhodes, listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, is an ideal place to stay for couples. Following the cobbled streets, passing through doors and arches, proceeding through squares, you will discover hidden pathways around the ancient Byzantine walls and churches. At nightfall, the bars and the restaurants offering local cuisine come to life and light up, which gives the entire place a unique charm and sense of eternity. The international airport is 5 to 10 minutes from downtown by car, depending on the traffic, which becomes heavier in summer. The sandy beaches of Faliraki and Tsambika are accessible by car in 25-35 minutes respectively; those of Ixia and Ialyssos are a 3 to 5 minute drive away.

    Accommodation 7.15 /10

    The Semiramis hotel accommodations are not all of the same standard. The standard rooms have an area of 130 ft² on average, compared to the triple space in the rooms of a higher category. In total, the hotel has 120 rooms in a five-storey building, equipped with an elevator that leads to narrow corridors. Similarly, the balconies - facing each other - are long and cramped. All rooms are equipped with satellite television, telephone (direct international calls), individual air-conditioning, an empty refrigerator (by request), a hair dryer. View onto the sea or the street (view on the city from the fourth floor). No complimentary personal toiletries in the bathrooms. A shower with a curtain in the standard rooms, which are simply furnished. In contrast, the superior category rooms have well-maintained parquet flooring, a modern shower or bathtub and have a view of the sea.

    Overview 6.65 /10

    Built in 1971 and renovated in 2003, the hotel has a huge hall in black marble, furnished with leather sofas, where the reception and the bar are found. Its terrace nearby is equipped with plastic tables and chairs and has a magnificent view on the Aegean Sea. But the charm ends here. Access to the restaurant and the rooms is convoluted and the building, although it has modern architecture, has no particular charm. Its disadvantage: the access to the swimming pool. You have to go out of the hotel, walk down the street for some 65 feet, then descend a staircase to finally reach the small pool, built in a pit of gray concrete. The terrace has very little space, so the deckchairs are lined up in tight rows. This gloomy neighborhood is not the most charming in Rhodes. But it is easy to get to the attractions of the city on foot.

    Food and drink 6.15 /10

    The only restaurant in the hotel offers Mediterranean and international cuisine. It serves breakfast and dinner buffet style. All the tables (made of wood) are arranged in a large hall... but a little too close to one another. Yet, they are impeccably dressed and the combination creates a pleasant effect. The restaurant overlooks the street. However, the cocktail bar near the reception area offers a friendly atmosphere and more space. Once a week, a Greek evening is organised.

    To know

    Located in the heart of the most popular district in the new city of Rhodes, the hotel offers sufficient facilities for those who crave a cultural break. But comfort here is rather Spartan, especially as far as the rooms are concerned. Opt for a room with sea view. The Semiramis welcomes mainly European clientele, including Germans and Belgians.
    We suggest that you go up Metaxa Street on foot, cross Papalouka Avenue and then take the small road running along Laskou and Arkadiou Streets. A panoramic view on the bay of Ixia awaits you after a 20-minute walk.
    Just opposite, the old Rhodes unfolds and can be accessed on foot through the park sheltering the old hospital. It takes at least 20 minutes to get there.
    Remember that the restaurant and the rooms are non-smoking.

      The Agla is a small 4-star hotel hidden away in a quiet area near the Old Town of Rhodes and just 5 minutes from the new town and its shops, making it the ideal location for combining the beach, shopping and culture. No entertainment is provided at the hotel, so it is not the best place for a long stay with children, however, the establishment is perfectly suited for couples and more generally those just passing through the town for a couple of days.

      • Value for money 6.81
      • Location 7.39

      If you had to sum up the Rhodos Beach, the first word to come to mind would be 'simplicity'. It is a reasonably-sized 3-star hotel located facing the sea (and, unfortunately, the road!) with a much more intimate feel to it than most of the island's resorts. There is no organised entertainment, and there are very few facilities, but the peace and quiet, which some may consider to be an advantage, can quickly become frustrating if you have come in search of a lively holiday!

      Suspended between sea and sky, a short distance away from the lively tourism of the village of Faliraki, the Lucas Cypria is a modern hotel perfect for families or couples anxious to preserve a modicum of peace and quiet on a lively holiday. The only downside of its location is that you won't be able to roll out of the hotel and straight onto the beach...

      • Location 7.51

      The Belvedere is located opposite Kanari beach and it is an imposing four-floor building which can initially appear somewhat off-putting. The inside of the building is also lacking in charm, though the hotel does have the significant advantage of being well located and well-equipped for a town hotel. It also offers beautiful views across the sea, particularly at sunset. You are sure to enjoy your stay here, provided that you are not too sensitive to the noise of passing cars! In fact, you will need to cross a rather busy road to reach the beach from here. In short, this hotel is to be recommended to couples (particularly the elderly) or those just passing through the town.

      The 5* Ixian Grand was built in 1978 and underwent a complete makeover in 2007, which makes it hard to believe that it is over 30 years old! The new incarnation is designed to a contemporary, designer template. Just a few feet from the beach, the hotel has few sports facilities and not much in the way of organised entertainment and activities. It is therefore best suited to couples without children, or families passing through.

      Previously known as Sofitel, the Capsis has now abandoned the illustrious name without loosing any of its grandeur. It is a monumental nine-floor building which includes the largest conference centre ever to be seen in a European hotel; an important asset that is likely to inspire holidaying businessmen and women. This fully-equipped establishment is the ideal choice for couples as well as families. However, don't count on doing any activities, as these are practically non-existent...

      The Olympic Palace has such an imposing architecture that it's hard to pass by it without it catching your eye. It was built towards the end of the 70s, and from the outside it rather looks like a huge space craft. However, be assured that inside, the hotel is much more pleasant and features modern furniture. The clientele is mainly made up of families, most of which come from Europe.

      From the outside, the Rodos Palace is a massive 17-storey building, impossible to miss from the coastal road that passes in front of it. It's not the most welcoming of places at first glance, but once inside, guests remember that they shouldn't judge a book by its cover. However, the 70s inspired style is very present here, which might not be to the liking of all guests! However, despite its age, the Rodos Palace offers facilities that are suitable for guests of all ages. Interestingly, the hotel has welcomed some very famous guests, such as François Mitterrand and Margaret Thatcher.
