Rhodes Town is a fantastic choice for all types of holiday. First, you’ll benefit from a short transfer from the airport, then you have excellent shopping, restaurants and nightlife to sample. Whether you stay in Rhodes Town or not, Rhodes Town is well worth a day trip. The old town of Rhodes is quite something, amazingly well preserved, this ancient walled city has narrow cobbled streets with interesting shops and restaurants. Best of all though it is a real living city, not Disneyfied.
Away from the old town you have got the new town with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. You will find Rhodes Town bar street more international than Faliraki for example, with a Scandinavian bar, and an Aussie sports bar run by a Greek Aboriginal. If you want a no-frills hotel in a central location then Hotel Alexia is a great choice, and for better facilities try The Ibiscus or Belvedere. For a five star in Rhodes Town consider the Mitsis Grand or have a look at a hotel in Ixia such as The Rodian Amathus Beach.
