Pleasant old hotel, high in the hills. Good for walking. We did not stay, but had a nice coffee and we're made very welcome. Interesting history. You might even see some of the deer that live on the island.

Took friends to hotel after going around island, as it was their first visit to Rhodes. We have visited (not stayed) many times. Tea and cake lovely. Please Elafos, clean your customer toilets.

The hotel established in 1929 succeeded over all the years to preserve its style, architecture, inner decoration. This is both its strength and weakness. It is nice to look around and enjoy a cup of coffee and good-looking pastry in this special environment. Awesome view of the west coast. Nice forest and perfect mountain air. We asked to have a...

A unique experience in the island of Rhodes. Friendly stuff, breathtaking view, a must see while visiting Rhodes. Try the traditional cuisine in the hotels' restaurant. Tennis court and walking around the woods through mysterious old buildings from the 30s.

A casual visit for a hot chocolate but everyone was disappointed. 30 minutes for 3 chocolates and 1 capuchino that's a really bad service. 4 overpriced souffle chocolate and after waiting 40 minutes they were served cold ... This place is a bad example for Greek hospitality.

Actually, we didn't stay at the hotel just visited it. Had a quick meal across the road at the hotel's branch. The hotel is most impressive.
