    « Good Location, good Staff and Great Breakfast, »

    I stayed here in Sept 2016 on a 5 day break from my work in Turkey. It was very good, the location was excellent and it was easy to walk to the Old Town and many of the restaurants and bars locally. Staff very helpful and the two guys at the pool bar were great (sorry forget their names)...but full of good advice and happy to chat. Will definately stay again.

    « Good enough »

    It doesn't make the difference or touching excellence, but it's a comfortable choice either for business or city vacations. Pros Its location at city center Spacious Clean Normal prices Gentle personnel Enough facilities (dinning, wifi, etc.) Cons No parking, at public lot is not so easy to find slot at busy days. A little bit noisy Mediocre breakfast

    « Excellent. »

    Back again. Acknowledged as having stayed before and remembered by staff. Room as always comfortably appointed. Brilliant breakfast and buffet evening meal with good selection to choose from. Wheelchair friendly. Thank you.

    « Great value for price »

    Superb location in city center (and also not noisy) made our staying in Rhodes very convenient. The atmosphere in the pool area was good and relaxing (except of the cold water in the pool). Our room was OK (we changed the first room because of strange smell, the second rood was OK and kind of new). The staff was helpful and nice and the breakfast was very good.

    « Nice and centrally located hotel »

    Just stayed 5 nights at Plaza. The stay at Plaza was nice with an OK but worn down room. The room had the amenities to expect plus a narrow balcony overlooking the swimming pool. Breakfast was a buffet with basic supply. Staff swift and very service minded. All in all a very nice place to stay.

    « Not really a holidaymakers hotel! »

    This hotel is not very suited to holidaymakers who intend to stay for a week or more. It does have a pool and sun beds surrounding it, but the pool at the rear of the hotel is surrounded by high buildings so it feels like being at the bottom of a valley. When we were there at the end of October there was noise from refurbishments at adjoining property's as the holiday season finishes at the end of October in Rhodes and most tourist venues close. I would say to consider the hotel like a Premier Inn/ Travel Lodge, as there were many business men/women and Greek families who appeared to say for two or three days.There was only around 20 to 30 holidaymakers in the hotel for a week or more with only around 12 around the pool most days. We were on B & B so we could try local tavernas, but the breakfast was best described as adequate due to the hot menu consisted of bacon, fried or scrambled eggs, beans, small sausages and was the same every day. (mostly not well cooked and only warm)The bedroom was of an average size with a small fridge, tea and coffee facilities with kettle, and a flat screen TV, small safe free of charge. Adequate wardrobe and drawer storage. The housekeeping was good with bathroom towels changed every day and bed linen changed several times a week. Towels were supplied for the pool sun beds. The bathroom was small but adequate with a typical shower over the bath. We were on the top floor so the water pressure was low and on one occasion the shower stopped during use when covered in soap!!! Also the water was off for several hours on two days due to some "maintenance" which we were not advised of. Also being on the top floor our room had constant noise from some fan or pump on the roof which ran constantly. The room had a "balcony" which was just wide enough for one chair (about 18" wide!) All the staff we encountered were all very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is good for access to the harbor and old town if you enjoy wandering about and exploring all the passageways throughout the old walled town. We will be returning to Rhodes Town, but not to this hotel!

    « two nights »

    Two nights waiting for a ferry to a small island. Room very good, clean, comfortable bed, good shower, tea & coffee facilities. Breakfast buffet ok, good value and planty of choice. Didn't use the retaurant for lunch or evening dinner so cannot comment. Menu looks interesting so may have used it if not already decided on an outside tavevna.

    « Stop Overs »

    We use the Plaza as a stop over en route from UK to Symi. This usually involves just one night with an early start to catch the ferry. Despite our stay only being for a few hours we are always made very welcome and allocated spacious rooms. Bags are taken up for us and we spend what is left of the evening in the bar. Amazing that the barman remembers what I usually drink even though a few months has elapsed between visits. For us, breakfast has to be taken at 7am and the restaurant is open with the extensive buffet ready. The reception staff will call taxis for us and look after our luggage should we have more time in Rhodes before catching onward ferries. A great staging post!

    « Top value for money »

    We stayed at the Best Western in early October and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Staff were friendly and attentive, rooms were large and clean with the narrowest of balconies in the 2 rooms we stayed in. Bathrooms were a reasonable size and well maintained. Close to the old town, no more than a 10 minute walk at a leisurely pace. Plenty of choice for restaurants nearby. Plenty of choice in the buffet breakfast also but quality was only average. For the money though you couldn't ask for better. Would definitely stay again.

    « Convenient, short walk to centre of old town »

    Only 15 mins pleasant walk to the centre of the old town, the BW Plaza is in a quiet area adjacent to high end shopping, and a short drive to the airport. Bed was not the most comfortable but would stay here again for the value and convenience.

    « Nice and practical »

    Stayed to be in town centre. This is close to everything and a good hotel. Reception staff lack hospitality as computer screens are far more important than guests. Pool bar guy is brilliant as is the general bar man. Breakfast is good. We enjoyed our stay. Would stay again. Enjoy your time here.

    « no sleep »

    I was on the top floor of the hotel, normally not a problem but the lifts took ages to get to the top, my room had to be a family room originally as there was a paper thin door adjoining, I could hear the neighbors practically breathing, this was a major problem at 4 in the morning when they decided to listen to music then at 8 in the morning when they watched the simpsons on TV. When I left the reception staff never even asked how my stay was. This was a work trip so I felt like crap all the next day.

    « Nice room/hotel. Very friendly/ service minded staff. »

    Recommendable hotel for people going to Symi or other Dodecanese islands. Of course it´s a good choice if you´re going to stay in Rhodos for a week or two. Placed near the most interesting part of Rhodos city - the old town.

    « Plaza hotel »

    Very nice hotel within walking distance to the Old Town, marina, cafes, restaurants, casino and shopping. Has a lovely pool, bar and a really good breakfast is included. The rooms are spacious and a little worn but clean and well looked after. Staff are very friendly

    « Ideal location in the centre of town »

    is vey convenient hotel in cas you are in Rhodes for a business trip. In distance walking you can find anything around . rooms are very clean and the breakfast buffet is always rich!! Although we believe that the prices , especially during the winter time should be more competative and more flexible to those that are not for business or leisure on island. However because of its cleanliness and location would recommend it!

    5
    « Rhodes First Time Visit »

    For our first time visit to this island this hotel's location made it easily walkable to all the famous sites and shopping areas as it was centrally located as well as reasonably priced. Clean accommodations and a friendly staff added to the travel experience. Breakfast buffet each morning offered an array of items freshly prepared.

    5
    « Very pleasant stay as always »

    We always stay here if we need an overnight on the way to or from Symi. The staff are courteous and efficient, will store luggage for you, and the ouzo in the bar or by the pool is a delight! Breakfast is a very good spread.

    « Just what we needed »

    Have just returned from a weeks stay here and it did not disappoint, breakfast was great, room was standard and what we had expected, the swimming pool was kept clean and I must give credit to the barman and the assistant waiter who were always very friendly and happy to see us. I was pleased that there were always sun beds available throughout the day and the location was fantastic. Very glad we chose this hotel

    « Wonderful hotel but problems with housekeeping and you see garbage bins when you eat on the terrace »

    Great hotel, pool ,staff. Amazing location for boat trips to see old city and beach. Was lots of fun but Everything was great except fot the housecleaning. The cleaner didnt take out dirty cups or empty the garbage bin in bathroom. Also strange you sit on terrace on the right and see garbage bins when you eat dinner or breakfast. They should move these bins. But overall wonderful hassle free excellent friendly staff. I would definitely go again.

    « Disappointing! »

    we have been staying at this hotel nearly every year, but I think this will be the last time. The hotel is very dated, staff at front desk not friendly and ignore their guests, the room they first gave us was disgusting, the room was ok, but the bathroom was horrid, it was tiny, dirty, with no shower but a tap, with bars along the wall and a stool for the elderly, tiny sink with a window that looked out onto the back of the hotel which was dirty and disgusting. It was a nightmare!! We asked to be moved immediately, which they did, they moved us to to 5th floor, which was a much better room, but tired and dated, the carpet on the floor was all stained, the bathroom again, tiny, stains on the tiles, there was a bathtub with a shower which was a huge improvement, but again not very clean, with a stained bathtub. Considering what they charge for the room, you get nowhere near what you pay for, it is way overpriced for a sub par room. The breakfast was good, it was a saving grace, but I'm afraid this hotel has deteriorated with every year, yet they still charge so much a night. We will be looking for an alternative next time.

    « Only location »

    If you are looking a place close to the old town, it is ideal. But the rooms and hotel is from 90's. Breakfast is below avarage. Only for 1 night. The best part is close to Starbucks amd shopping Street.

    3
    « Great location, but very dated. »

    Overall if you are looking for a place that is close to the port and the old city, this is the place for you. Be aware that there is no place to park a rental car and you may have to park far from the hotel. Access to the hotel is not great. It was a chore just to load and unload luggage and most likely you will need to block the road to do so. Everything was clean, but just very outdated. Breakfast buffet was good and plentiful. Staff was good, but didn't go out of their way to make your stay more pleasant.

    « Great hotel and great location to old town »

    4 of us stayed here for one week in August. Room 317 is large and spacious with a double balcony overlooking the harbour so great views when the cruise ships coming in. The air con was good but a little noisy however you can turn it down to a lower setting so not noisy and can sleep with it on. The shower was good with free shampoo etc and a hairdryer. The pool is great with lots of sunbeds and a nice bar with reasonable prices. Coffee is good. The hotel has a small shop which is reasonably priced. Location is fab with a short walk to the old town and harbour. All staff are helpful and friendly Definitely recommend this hotel

    « Rhodes Town, August 10th - 24th 2016 »

    When we arrived we were disappointed with our room, as it overlooked a back street and had no balcony big enough to sit on (Pool View). After trying another room that was no better, we ended up paying 195 Euros for a Sea View Room with a balcony facing the Street below. This Hotel is in a great location within walking distance to the New Town and the Old Town.

    « Great Location and good service »

    Its not cheap but for the price you get a lovely buffet breakfast and the pool is a welcome relief after a long day sight seeing. Would use it again but would shop around for a better price. The location is a bonus too with easy walking to the old town, marina, shopping and transport. There is a convenience store nearby too. It is not a 5 star by any standards but a good hotel and the service was very good also.

    3
    « Good location, old and dated hotel »

    Good location, old and dated hotel. Service is hit and miss, some are very nice, some are rude and can't be bothered. Breakfast was ok just standard. Air con was old and loud. Bathroom also old and very dated. Hotel needs a complete renovation

    « An excellent choice »

    We booked this hotel on-line for 7 nights and we were not disappointed. Five minutes from the diving boat and day tour marina, five minutes in the opposite direction to a wide variety of shops and restaurants, and 15 stroll minutes from the Old Town, the Best Western is very well located. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, always ready to provide information on the town and the island. The lady in the tour office next door was also very helpful. Our room was quite large with lots of storage space. We had a balcony overlooking the street but traffic noise was never an issue. The hotel restaurant provides meals at all times of day and we took advantage of the pre-paid breakfast arrangement every morning. The food was broad range without being too fancy and the seating was always comfortable. The restaurant staff were top notch. The outside pool was quite large although a little cool in early June but its big advantage was the shelter it provided from the strong prevailing wind at the time. The beach on the western side of the island was suitable only for the brave. We highly recommend this hotel.

    « Accommodation in Rhodes »

    A great value for money hotel close to Mandraki Hotel and close enough to the shopping area without being affected by city centre traffic or noise. Very convenient for ferries to the islands and only a short taxi ride to the main port areas. Staff are friendly, supportive and helpful.

    « Great location »

    The hotel is close to the harbour,beach, lots of places to eat and 15 mins stroll to the amazing old town. Nice pool, sunbeds a bit crowded but we never had a problem getting one. Really good location but be aware that transfer buses cannot get to the door so you have to walk a little so may be an issue if you have mobility issues. Get a taxi not a bus!

    « Most friendly hotel ever, great location »

    We have stayed at this hotel four times and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Location is excellent for beach, shopping, sightseeing. Restaurant excellent. Good value for what you get. Recommend highly. There are classier hotels with better rooms but they are far out of the town, with the Plaza you get the best of service with the best of locations.

    « Decent »

    This hotel has a great location if you want to explore Rhodes. We walked to the port, shopping precinct, beach and food strips all decently close to us. The staff can work on their customer service however. They do aa you ask, but attitude can go a loooooong way. The rooms are clean and tidy and the pool are is nice. It can become quite crowded so i suggest going down early of that is the plan for the day. The bar area is nice (a tad expensive however). Overall a decent stay.

    We stayed here as family for 2 weeks and really enjoyed the stay. Relaxed hotel, very friendly staff. Nice pool with beds, not too big but good enough to relax. Rooms are basic with good airco. Missing the indoor gym. However breakfast is very nice with lots of choice.

    « Friendly atmosphere and nice for a leisure »

    We have visited Rhodes as familly of four and thus chose Hotel Bestwestern Plaza, expecting to make our journey more comfortable. What we have seen and experienced there was according to our expectation. Hotel is nicely situated, in walking distance of Elly beach and old city of Rhodes. Magnificant Harbour is just 2 minutes walk from the Hotel. Hotel itself has all elements needed for enjoyment. Staff is extremly friendly, helpfull and at your disposal all the time. Meals are quite ok, but slightly less than we have seen in similar hotels in Spain ie. For instance some of the days bread and croissants were taken from previous night, which shouldn't be happening in 4 stars hotel. Room was quite in good condition. It must have been renovated year or two ago and still kept in a good condition. Cleaning is regular and good. What was a problematic in a way was that room are not that big. Again we expected a bit bigger room. For familly with two small children was a bit narrow. I imagine that for the familly with bigger children would be even less satisfactory. Swimming pool is really nice and sunny, there is even a part for small kids. At the end of the day I would rate the hotel with 4,2 grade and recommend it for the vacation on Rhodes.

    5
    « Convenient location at a reasonable price »

    Our usual accommodation when in Rhodes. The Plaza offers spacious rooms with comfortable beds and free wi/fi. A generous buffet breakfast in the morning and very good meals on offer in the restaurant for lunch and dinner. A 5 minute walk and you're in the middle of Rhodes' shopping district. Another 5 minutes and you're in Rhodes Old Town. For those who don't want to walk to the beach, the Plaza has a decent sized swimming pool. The staff are friendly and helpful and speak a variety of languages.

    « Staff excellent, rooms average »

    Just back from a week at the Plaza and had a great time. All of the staff were really friendly and couldn't be more helpfull. The public areas always spotless and the room cleaning great. The rooms are basic but clean. For the time of year pool just big enough, loungers are padded which also helps. The pool bar service was fantastic as was the dining area, I'm a little fussy but there was a variety of foods and I was able to try a few new foods as it was buffet style. The hotel bar was great and had a fantastic range of drinks and cocktails. The locaction of the hotel is amazing. It is just down the hill to the harbour and about a 10minute walk to the old town one way and 10 minutes the other way to the beach and along the road to the new town, bar street and the shop's. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would come back again

    « We've been back already. »

    We went for a couple of nights stay at the beginning of our trip and found this hotel had just what we wanted - so we returned for our last few days and nights. The staff were all very helpful and everything seemed to run really smoothly. Food was good whether you were looking for breakfast ( everything from pancakes to bacon and eggs as well as the excellent greek yoghurt etc - even fresh donuts one morning); bar snacks in the evening, lunch by the pool or dinner. Great position for our needs (old town visits, ferry port, taxi to airport). Wifi and computers available... great for independent travellers used to more business than package holiday.

    « Love to Return Here, but Showing Age »

    We return most years, and as always, George the night desk flashes that big honest smile, the breakfasts are wonderful, and the room comfy, the location could not be better. Wifi involved since two years ago but still, each year passes without a major overhaul, and it's time.

    This hotel was good place to stay for a week with my friends. Good service and the people were nice and very helpful. Pool area is nice and you get tasty drinks and food at the poolbar. Margarita is absolutely the best drink. Great logations, near everything you need, food, shops and transports. To the elli beach is 1 km walk. Definitely worth a stay

    « Amazing location »

    My family and I stayed at this hotel for a week. The location is just perfect. I would advise anyone who wants to walk around without renting a car to stay at this hotel. To the right of the hotel it's a 2 minute walk to the port which leads you to the old city. To the left you have shopping places and can reach the beach and hotels area. Highly recommended and enjoyable stay.

    « Excellent hotel in the heart of Rhodes, Greece »

    Excellent hotel in all aspects of my stay. From the pool area to the bar - this hotel is worth it. Best of all, it's priced just right. I recommend it to all. The staff goes out of their way to make things right all the time. Clean, comfortable and best of all cozy and family friendly.

    « Ideal hotel for short stay in Rhodes »

    We visit the Plaza regularly on our way to and from Symi when ferries don't allow us to make the trip in one day. It's always the same, welcoming staff, spotlessly clean, hearty and good value breakfasts. Nothing fancy but reliable and friendly.

    « Great hotel in a super location. »

    Had a brilliant holiday in Rhodes. The hotel is perfectly situated for short walks into the Old Town and down to the harbour. The New Town should not be overlooked and this is also on the doorstep. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Bathrooms a little on the small side but perfectly adequate. Really good pool area with great snack bar menu. Great breakfast that caters for every taste. Worth trying the evening buffet as really good value for money. Staff are brilliant. Special mention for Terry who runs a superb bar area, George who manages the restaurant and went out of his way to ensure everything was ok and his staff Feteini and Agapitos who looked after us so well. Would not hesitate to recommend.

    Loved this hotel, as close to everything you need. The rooms were cleaned daily, breakfast choice was good and plenty to suit everyone, pool was on the small side but only 10 minute walk for lovely beach and 10 minute walk from Rhodes old town, which we loved. So many places around to eat. Hotel bar was good and Terry very pleasant,. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be close to everything.

    « Best - Best Western! »

    we were staying in Rhodes for three nights and decided to book this hotel and was definitely not disappointed. From the moment we booked in, late in the evening, the staff could not have been nicer. The location is perfect for the harbour and the buzz of the town. The hotel is spotlessly clean. We stayed bed and breakfast. Food was excellent, a huge choice of delicious things to start your day. We had lunch at the bar on one occasion and it was very good. The hotel was a lovely pool with a bar. There are a lot of sun loungers, the only thing I could find fault in is that they are positioned very closely together. The main hotel bar is very relaxing and comfortable with seating by the pavement but undercover. On the evenings we were there the barman, Terry, was an absolutely great guy. You don't have to pay for the safety safe in your room....a wee added bonus. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

    « Perfect hotel for us »

    This was the fourth time my daughter and I have stayed at this hotel. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and we always feel very comfortable here. The staff are very friendly, helpful and polite. There are no sea views and you can't walk straight onto the beach but for us the position is perfect. It is within a 5-10 minute stroll to the beach, the Old Town, the new town with it's designer shops and the harbour area. There are also lots of restaurants and little shops in the streets around the hotel. The pool area is very clean and usually quiet with sun beds always available. The rooms are spacious and well furnished with air-con and a safe. Whenever we holiday in Rhodes Town we will stay here and look forward to returning.

    « Good budget hotel »

    I stayed here for one night to do some sightseeing in Rhodes Town and catch the early catamaran to Symi the next day. Overall, it was a pleasant stay - the location, in particular, was very convenient. The room was a little dated in appearance, but it was clean and comfortable. The selection for breakfast was very good in the morning, with continental and cooked options. My only negative point is that the member of staff on reception was a little unfriendly, and unhelpful in answering my questions when checking in.

    « Location is key »

    I went to Rhodes for just 4 nights with my cousin and I didn't know what to expect as I had only booked it 2 days before we were to fly out. However by the end of the holiday I was so happy with my mini break. Therefore I suggest to anyone who are not sure where to go this year for the holiday Rhodes is a must. There is soo much to see and do daytime, evening and night. First of all because of the last minute booking with teletext I did not get a chance to throughly check out the hotel or it location which I'm sure most people like to do. When we landed in Rhodes we had booked a shared transfer but luckily for us the best western was a 20 minute ride or maybe 30 (sorry I can't remember that much but I know it wasn't so long but at least the views were amazing as we were travelling along the coast. So when we finally got dropped off we weren't dropped off in front of our hotel because it was situated on a small road but it was only a two min walk on a straight road. The outside the hotel could be deceiving but once you enter its a very charming hotel with people at the reception ready to help and speak good English. I've never Brent k fussy with my hotel room as I feel like I need a place to sleep shower and eat therefore I felt that the rooms were more than adequate for my needs. We were also given welcome drinks once we refreshed ourselves and meet the barman Terry who made the hotel that extra bit special. He always had a smile, always had something to say and very helpful. I think he may be the reason why the bar of the hotel is alway busy in the evenings. The hotel is probably one of the best located in the area. If you turn right from the entrance of the hotel it will lead you to harbour, the old city, the new city, and the beach. If you turn left for the restaurant you will asleep eventually see a beach and there clubs on that side. In regards to a restaurant there are too many all have similar menus that mainly include Greek specialities, pizza and pasta. The restaurants outside the old city are less expensive and the average dish price should be around €10-12 if not fish. The harbour is close and gives tourist a chance to visit our the places in Rhodes such as faliraki, lindos and Anthony Quinn bay. You may want to visit at least Lindos but all the places mentioned have a sandy beach apart from rodos the city centre where the hotel is situated All in all I'm very happy with the holiday and even though I never visit the same place twice I think I would make an exception I would definitely stay at the same hotel.

    « Best Western Plaza Hotel Rhodes Greece »

    We spent 10 nights here. The location is quiet and just a few minutes walk to the famous old port. Rhodes old town is 10 minutes leisurely walk along the marina. There are numerous restaurants in the old town(tip you can find the best by avoiding the main thoroughfares with hustlers) Also near the restaurant -100 metres away is a street full of restaurants. For this reason we did not eat in the hotel in the evenings. There are literally hundreds of restaurants to choose from and the best are listed in trip advisor. Breakfast in the hotel is buffet style and has an abundance of possibilities. Staff are very polite and speak English. Special thanks at breakfast time to Fortuniti always smiling and clearly loves her job. By UK standards the hotel is excellent value for money

    « Very good value for money, particularly recommended to the low budget tourist »

    The Great Western and Plaza hotel is situated in a relatively quiet road in Rhodes in an ideal position for the tourist. It is within a 5-10 minute walk from the sea marina, the castle and old town. Moreover, it is surrounded by a plethora of restaurants serving the local delicacies. We stayed at the hotel for a week in May. Our room was sufficiently spacious and effectively air conditioned; we had access to a small balcony that could take a chair and a small table. A fridge was available which, however, contained only fizzy drinks and water; nothing alcoholic. No coffee/tea facilities were available. A modern television could access many channels in most European languages. The bathroom was very small and ill designed; putting cold water on your face in the morning was a major challenge. Minimum toiletries were available and essentials, such as a shower cap, were missing. No safety mat was available so that having a shower in the slippery bath is worrying, particularly for the elderly. The restaurant was large so that a table was always available at breakfast, even at the busy times. A modest selection of both cold and hot food items of adequate quality were available; it was obvious that many items were ?reformed' from powders rather than fresh. On some days the so-called ?fresh juices' were so dilute that it was not possible to identify the fruit! The staff were courteous and friendly. Checking in and out was very rapid and simple. The hotel was maintained at a high level of cleanness. It should be emphasised that the hotel is inexpensive thus constituting very good value for money, and it is particularly recommended to the low budget traveller.

    Stayed with my adult son for 4 nights. Superb service ,staff helpful and informative Plaza is close to town ,the old town , the harbour and beach agreat location Breakfast will set you up for the day We stayed on half board basis, unfortunately they will not let you use the allowance at lunch. We only ate once in the evening, a very good buffet , plus small selection of dishes to order . All good Both rooms were a good size and overlooking the pool .....quieter than the road side. Pool area is small but ideal in May, not sure what it would be like in the height of the season, beds are very close together, and due to the hotel being in the town you have to change beds to get the sun.....not a problem in May . Very good pool bar as is the hotel bar .....friendly staff who spoke excellent english Will stay again, hoping to go back in May next year

    « Excellent location, great value, unpretentious with extremely friendly staff. »

    There is an old adage that says you get what you pay for.... Well the Plaza gives you more than you would expect for the price... There are countless five star hotels in Rhodes that charge twice as much but aren't twice as good, the Plaza is perfectly located, has a great pool area, breakfast is excellent value for money and the rooms whilst dated are clean and well presented.. We found the staff all very friendly and accommodating without exception and all our needs were attended to with a smile and enthusiasm... I think the only way you could fault this hotel is if your expectations are unrealistic or you were hoping for champagne on a beer budget... I am happy to recommend it!

    « Fabulous city hotel »

    I just returned from an 8 day stay in Rhodes. In provirus years we stayed outside the city (Ixia), and now wanted a different kind of vacation. I found the Best Western hotel and as I had great experience with this chain decided to give it a try - it was a wonderful stay for anyone looking for a city holiday. The hotel location is perfect. Walking distance from the old town, and city center. All the amenities are very close by (super market across the street, coffee shops and restaurants all around, hair salon 5 min away and etc). The room was very specious, beds were comfortable and cleaning staff did a good job (just a bit strange they never once washed our coffee glass). The only thing was that the porch was a bit small, and I noticed this is not the case with the majority of other rooms in the hotel. Also, before season starts they don't let the air-condition be on cool, and we were a bit hot in the room in some of the days. This is something I already encountered in Rhodes in different hotels, but still cannot fully understand it. The hotel itself is also very nice, great bar team and great food from it. Breakfast buffet was basic, but nice. I understand that when the season opens officially they also have someone preparing choice omelette- I really wish we had that. Great pool and all very clean. I have no doubt I'll return here for my next visit.

    « Excellent. A good choice »

    I agree with all the positive reviews. A very good choice for me. The location was great - 5 minute walk to the beach and waterfront, old town nearby, supermarkets a minute away, restaurants and bars on the door step. The hotel facilities were great - pool was nice, WiFi was very good, room with balcony was great, breakfast was a very varied offering and really nice, staff were pleasant. A real plus for me was that when I stayed there weren't many kids at this hotel. I was on the 5th floor overlooking the street side with sea views and didn't experience any noise that affected any sleep quality. Very good value - booked via booking.com several months in advance for £42 per night. I got a taxi on arrival from the airport for 25 Euros. On departure I asked about a taxi at reception and they quoted 29 Euros. I walked down the street and got a taxi for 25 back to the airport. So itbwas only a 4 Euros difference but it was the principle for me. Overall really excellent value and location - a very nice and comfortable stay and if returning I would certainly stay again

    We are customers for years in Plaza hotel. The location is perfect. In less than 5 minutes walking distance from the beach. 10 minutes to the old town and the Mandraki harbour. 20 minutes from the airport. Nice clean rooms. Friendly staff. The main bar with bartender Terry is the best bar in all of the town! Nice pool with a perfect poolbar. Very good food in the restaurant and bar. After visiting many different hotels in Rhodes the Plaza hotel is by far the best one!

    Good location (450 m to the airport bus main station and 650 m to the Old Town), good food (breakfasts and dinner buffet), good price, large rooms (with kettle if you ask for it, TV with many international channels, and balcony). They have 3 computers to use free at the 1st floor. There is free public parking at 300 m.

    Stayed here on business for a week, the hotel was great, bedroom was very clean, breakfast was great. Was not great if you have a car as parking is hard. BUT, what really made this hotel was Terry behind the hotel bar, he would go out of his way each night to make sure you are happy. A real credit to the hotel and look forward to seeing him again as really made out stay. Many thanks Terry.

    « nice staff. excellent location. »

    stayed for a few days. breakfast was decent and will keep you from going hungry untill lunch time. the coffee was good which is exceptional for hotels. rooms are spacious and well lit. since this was my second visit, i knew to ask for a room facing the pool and not the street. pay attention that the rooms facing the streets are loud and there is transport running all through the night. no double glasses so the noise will go in. i ended up having a room close to the alivator. there is noise coming from the outside even though no transport noise was present. also, there was noise comming from the alivator and in comming guests. the bed was called queen size, which meant it was made out of two single beds. no connecting matress was found in order to really making it into one bed. since the mattresses were so old and used it was very uncomfotable to sleep on them, especially with separation between the tow matresses. the solution found was to move to a room with one bed which eventually was more comfortable. all was done with great grace and understanding on behalf of the hotel's team. it was a good experience. the hotel is close to the beach. less than 5 minutes walk would get you to one of rhodes beautyful beach lines. a nice supermarket is also at a short walking distance. location is excelent. enjoy

    Excellent hotel. Breakfast very good. Room very good and clean Staff where excellent and very helpful and full of good advice about the area Couldn't fault our stay there at all As it was our winter holiday break we expected it to be quiet but the hotel was quite busy. The bar was reasonably priced and so where the meals in the evening We will definitely be back to stay there again and it's just around the corner from our friends so that was a bonus

    « Good hotel, less than friedly staff »

    The location is excellent (great for exploring medieval Rhodos), the room comfortable, and the breakfast was very good with considerable variety to choose from. parking is a challenge, although with patience you can find parking on the street close to the hotel. Otherwise it's about two blocks West to the public parking lot. The sole drawback to this facility was the lack of courtesy and friendliness of the staff. The benefits definitely outweigh the drawbacks especially if you want to explore the old town.

    « Punches above its weight »

    This is a self described 4 star hotel but in a three night stay it certainly pushed the upper limits of that rating. The staff were uniformly excellent and friendly, the room we had overlooking a very appealing pool area was first rate, room safe, wifi, air conditioning all at hand in a spacious area with a good bathroom. There was a bar near the lobby, and restaurant, along with a poolside bar that served a reduced but appetising range of food. Buffet breakfast was first rate. We ate out at night in several different nearby locations - there is plenty of choice within easy walking distance - but did not find anywhere out of the box (perhaps our fault of course), so maybe dining at the hotel, at least once, might have been a smart move. All in all, a very good hotel perfectly situated in the old town.

    We stayed overnight on 5th Jan, for my 70th birthday. All the staff were great and extremely helpful. We were going to walk to a restaurant nearby for our evening meal, but as it was such a cold and wet night decided to stay and eat in the hotel restaurant. What a great decision that was. The food was really good, and the waiter brought us some cake to celebrate my birthday. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anybody who wants a good hotel near the centre of town. We had lovely views of the sea, with Turkey clearly in the distance. We are seriously thinking of going back there for our wedding anniversary in February. We live on Rhodes.

Our room 402 was spaceous with an very large double bed, & a nice view towards Mandraki church & harbour.All the staff were so friendly & delightful.When the bar staff & restaurant waiter knew it was my wifes 70th birthday they brought us cakes.At only € 6 how could I not use the sauna.Our evening meal was good. However I would liked to have seen more Greek food on the menue.The buffet breakfast had a large selection of hot & cold food. Plus fruits,yougurt. biscuits & cakes.Off course tea, coffee & juices with toast & jams.

    « The hotel enhanced a great Rhodes holiday »

    As a member of a Ramblers Holidays' trip to Rhodes we spent 11 nights over Christmas and New Year at the hotel and I cannot really fault it. The location is ideal to explore the Town and harbour on foot and within five minutes there is access to tavernas and a friendly supermarket. The hotel staff made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfasts were hearty and the buffet dinners had variety and always included traditional island recipes. The two special occasions, Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve were well organised with live music and this added a touch of class by the hotel.

    « Brilliant staff, great food and very comfortable hotel in Rhodes town. »

    The Best Western Plaza is an ideal hotel for anyone visiting Rhodes town. Near Mandraki harbour and lots of good restaurants this hotel is ideally suited to everyone wanting to explore Rhoes new town or the old town. Very comfortable clean rooms, delicious food in the restaurant with excellent breakfast choice. From booking in at reception to having a drink at the bar this hotel offers excellent service to its guests. Have stayed many times as we live in Rhodes and book in for an overnight stay quite often. The staff are so friendly and really make your stay enjoyable. Have tried other similar hotels but they all for short in staff service. The Plaza staff are outstanding and I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Simply the best.

    « The Friendliest and most helpful staff I have ever seen »

    I have been to many luxurious 5 star hotels around the world, but I have never met such friendly and helpful people ever! This hotel helps donate food and things to the refugees at the camp in the island. The staff go out of their way to help you with anything and even if u just wanna talk. The room was cozy and comfortable and quiet. The shower always had hot water and the water pressure was good. During breakfast little birds would come in and I would feed them so that was very pleasant. The breakfast was not bad but sufficient. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the house keeping would sometimes leave only one towel but if I asked for more then would gladly send some to the room. Overall a great experience and the staff felt more like friends and family.

    Have stayed here on numerous occasions. For the price and the fact that is has a pool where many hotels around the area do not this place is great.

    Hi people, we got here on the 1st of October for a relaxing holiday in a 4* hotel.. I wish. At first, we got a twin bedroom 'sea view' (room 522) so I went back to the reception where the gentle lady tried to fix my problem changing my room..(we are a couple, and we would have liked one bed...) so we moved to room 426, I onfloor behind, but it just got worse worse. The beg was a single king size, and instead of a sea view(that I paid an extra 120? for it)

    « Great Location »

    We booked very last minute for an overnight visit to Rhodes town. Chose this hotel because of the location and great price. Receptionists who greeted us on the evening of the 9th October were more interested in their administration tasks than concentrating on checking us in. The hotel overall was clean and everything was as you would expect for the price we paid. I was surprised at the amount of Greek, German and Russian TV chanels considering the overall guest profile. It would have been good to have a few good English speaking chanels available rather than just the news and Macadonia TV. Breakfast was very good and check out this morning swift and efficient. We will definately return on future visits.

    « Great for a short stay »

    We always use this hotel as a "pit stop" on our way to/from Symi and know that we will get a warm welcome, a decent room and a good breakfast at a very reasonable price. Public rooms (bar, lounge,dining etc.) are clean and welcoming and, although a little "tired" the rooms are fine for a short stay. The buffet breakfast, taken in a pleasant dining area with some outdoor seating, is very good value for money with a good choice of hot and cold food. Do avoid the juice though - cheap and nasty! Didn't use the pool but it looked clean and there are sun loungers available together with comfortable chairs and tables around the pool. Snacks and drinks are available in a shaded area beside the pool. The bar, both inside and out, is clean and comfortable with good, reasonably priced drinks and very pleasant bar staff. Our room this time (415) was clean with a large bed, crisp clean linens and all the usual amenities with plenty of wardrobe/drawer space should you need it. There was a small mini bar containing water and soft drinks which is operated on a trust system. Didn't try the TV but liked the large LED alarm clock on the dressing table which could be easily seen from the bed. WIFI in the room and throughout the hotel was excellent.The balcony overlooking the pool was tiny (just wide enough to fit a chair at each end) but adequate for our needs. The bathroom was clean and functional but showing signs of wear and tear. Pool towels are provided in addition to usual bathroom towels. The hotel is in an excellent position just a short walk from the New Market, the Old Town and Mandraki harbour. There is a small travel agency next door where you can purchase ferry tickets etc. and a small mini-market opposite the entrance for basic supplies. In conclusion - a good stop over or base for a few nights whilst exploring Rhodes town.

    I couldn't have been more happy that we chose to stay at the Plaza Best Western in Rhodes. The location was PERFECTION. 3 minute walk from the beach, 3 minute walk from the old city, and right in front of the hotel was an adorable pedestrian area filled with delicious restaurants and tourist shops. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The breakfast every morning was delicious, with a chef making custom crepes and omelettes, there was free wifi in every room and a computer station on the first floor of the hotel. The staff was so warm and welcoming, the rooms were spotless, and I wouldn't hesitate to return one day. It really is in the perfect location if you want to experience all that Rhodes has to offer. It is central yet very quiet and the pool area is great as well! You get the best bang for your buck here!

    « What a great find! »

    Arrived early from Symi for a one night stopover in Rhodes Town. We arrived at about 0830 not expecting to get a room (we had reserved one in advance) at that time of day rather, expecting to leave our bags in concierge. We were immediately given our room for the whole day and night which meant we could freshen up before hitting Socrates street and the old town! The service was fantastic at reception and at breakfast which we paid for separately having got up on Symi at 0530hrs. Breakfast price is a fantastically silly price of Euros 6 per head!!! The rooms are spacious and air conditioned with all the usual amenities plus mini bar.

    « Stopover on way to leros »

    We stayed here the first and last night of our holiday. Room was fairly large with everything you want. I think it is ideal for a one night stay. Negative was the breakfast. The so called orange juice was awful, yogurt not much better. Service good but food quality poor with cheap ingredients. Pool area looked nice but not used. Taxi fare from airport to hotel 25 euro, hotel to ferry port 8 euros.
