Reviewed 1 October 2017

The Nikolis Hotel was our first stop on our first vacation to Greece, and it set the tone perfectly for the rest of our trip. We arrived late and had the hotel arrange our airport pickup (I recommend this as not all taxis will drive into the tight, turning alleyways of Old Town Rhodes). We were absolutely delighted to see the historic beauty of our location and the hotel.

No elevator, but the night deskman carried our bags upstairs. There was a little embarrassment as he discovered a, uh, present left behind by one of the neighborhood stray cats on the threshold of the room next to ours. No matter to us, we quickly settled into our stellar corner room and watched the moon rise over the port of Rhodes from our balcony. The bed (two twins pushed together) was comfortable, and the French doors had blackout curtains (though we preferred being awakened by the sunrise).

The breakfast on the roof is generous and delicious, with fruit, pastries, breads, cheeses and meats, and eggs or yogurt available if you like. There's a sweet courtyard patio with tables and chairs that's filled with artifacts from the hotel's location, I believe.

The location was great, as we chose to wander around the Old Town on foot for the two days we stayed there. We had arranged for a private tour on our first day, and it was an easy 5 minute walk to the Gate St. Athanasius to meet the driver. The hotel was also close enough to the port that we were going to walk there with our bags to depart on our cruise, but our innkeeper Marianne wouldn't have it -- she insisted upon taking us right to our boat.

Altogether, it was just a lovely stay,

Room Tip: Room 19 is a top floor corner room with a lovely view of the port -- and the sunrise.

Oozing character in a good location away from the noise of the city although does get the jets overhead. The management could not be more helpful and were a perfect blend of easy and chatty, professional and caring. There is no restaurant but there is breakfast on the roof which is lovely. Our room, though small, was clean and looked after with a decent balcony for morning sun and evening shade. The shower and bathroom however leave a lot to be desired as others have commented. Indeed anyone over 80kg will struggle in the shower of the room we had and the bathroom really needs a complete rethink. With hindsight booking direct would have been better. It's an awkward walk from the taxi drop off because of the pebbled roadway. The hotel has a golf cart to collect you but you'd only know from the hotel itself. The price is a little high but the hotel character sells it. We will go again but need a room with much better bathroom facilities or we will go elsewhere.

Awesome location, apartments well equipped and modernised but be aware that space is a premium compared to regular hotel rooms. The biggest issue was the location of the toilet. The space was very tight and lid doesn't stay up. It makes it somewhat inconvenient when going to do your business. Any larger people wouldn't be able to use the space. Every thing else was fine and apartments are cleaned daily and people are nice. You will need to plan to pick up the keys beforehand.

Stayed here last summer and had to come again. Greeted by Marianne on our return as if we were part of her family, and staying here you will feel like you are. As has been said many times before you get well looked after here, from the really comfortable rooms and delicious breakfast and in such an ideal location, in the walls of the old town but just far enough away for that peace and quiet.
Enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again

This hotel deserves the praise it has received. Marianne and her staff deserve every word of appreciation.
They look after every aspect of your stay in the old town and are exceptionally generous.
The rooms are quiet and comfortable. The breakfast ( which we almost missed as we slept so well ) was both unexpected and grandly delivered up on the roof, where all eating should take place in the old town.
Every aspect of our stay was catered for down to transport transfers.
