Without doubt the worst hotel we have stayed in, so far. It was on entry from the lift on the 4th floor that gave the first impression.

The carpet was absolutely filthy, stained and grubby all the way to our room. The corridor roof is planked with loads of electrical wires everywhere, and the lighting is abysmal.

Oh! Did I mention the constant howling of wind coming from under the doors too?
On entering the room we were greeted with the ever open wardrobe door that would not stay closed, (unless you reversed the doors of course). Looking inside every hinge was rusted beyond repair!

The bathroom. Another door that would not stay shut unless locked from the inside. Horrible plumbing, broken tiles, a towel rack that is nothing more than a chipped white open box hung on the wall above the loo.
Dirty air vents, a shower that was a nightmare to work as you have to lift the stopper behind the tap that didn't always stay in position. The non-slip part of the bath is just 4 black tape strips.

The bedroom. The bed was as hard as nails. Above it built into the wooden (headboard?) was a non-working radio. The reading lights looked no more than hinged toilet roll holders with holes in that swivelled up and down to adjust the light and were all rusted inside.
Note: If you are staying in a room with single beds, these lights are so close to the bed that if you turn, you will hit your head on them, really! It happened to my sister-in-law.
There are no tea making facilities unless hired at a fee.
The lights. Well, what can I say. It looks like a dustbin-lid satellite dish about 2 feet across with a little bulb behind it, (rusty also), with dodgy wiring behind.
It looked ridiculous.

You do have a TV, perched on top of your good sized refrigerator, but that is so close to what appears to be a dressing table, sorry (shelf), across the corner of the room, that everything seemed cluttered.

Maid service. Cannot fault them for plenty of clean towels and linen but I don't think they know what a mop is.

The Breakfast Room. Wonky dirty tables together with your pigeons that walked freely around most mornings, without any member of staff attempting to get them out.

Food. Fried eggs that reminded me of rubber or better still 'Haribo' sweet eggs, cold beans and don't even look at the omelettes, ugh!
The Cornflakes were ok., but the sugar shakers are all gummed up with crystallised sugar in the spouts. How I hate that.
If you like Dutch or German style yoghurt, syrup, cake, sliced meat and cheese breakfasts, then no problem there.
Don't be late for breakfast, because they are very swift at taking everything away and turning the lights out.

The Pool. Very tiny and quite deep for youngsters if you have any, being 1.5 mtrs at the shallowest end.

Another plus is the view if you have a sea view room, but no sun in the morning on that side and windy yet warm. The beach is just over the very busy (noisy) road. The sunsets though, are great!

So, if you want a cheap, very bland hotel in a perfect location, then 'Rhodos Beach' is for you, but think very very carefully before booking your trip, as I will do if I ever thought of staying again in this hotel.
It is in dire need of a complete refurbishment for top to bottom.

We booked this as a last minute holiday and were not disappointed with this hotel. It is on a par with other Greek hotels we have stayed at before - very basic, but very clean. Our room was at the back of the hotel and we asked for a front facing alternative but the hotel was full and they couldn't oblige until the 2nd week. However, we found that the sun shone better on our room than those at the front (when we preferred it) so we decided to decline the offer of a front facing room. The room included a TV, a full sized fridge (wonderful) and independently operated air-con. The inclusive breakfast was excellent with meats, cheeses, eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers, fruit, breads, cakes, the thickest yoghourt imagineable and honey, plus tea, coffee and fruit juices. The pool area was behind a high wall separating it from the coast-road but was less attractive than that at the neighbouring sister hotel, The Belvedere which is open to all Rhodos Beach clients, as is their evening buffet at 10 euros which was very good quality and value for money. Thursday nights the Belvedere did a traditional Greek buffet with bouzouki players and dancers which was so professional and good fun, again, all for 10 euros each. The hotel faces Turkey 11 miles away across the Agean Sea from where a fierce wind blows constantly which is annoying when sunbathing on the beach as it causes the gritty sand to blow everywhere and whips up the sea showering those close to the water's edge. The hotel staff are all very professional and friendly - we couldn't find anything or anyone to complain of.

We stayed at the Rhodos Beach Hotel for a week, and found it was in an ideal location for exploring Rhodes Town - 10-20 mins easy walk and you could be at the Old Town, New Town or Harbour. The hotel was right across the road from the beach, and while we were there there were plenty of sunbeds and parasols available. We were charged 4 euros per person per day for the sun loungers.

The breakfast was ok; there was cereal, yoghurt, little croissants, sliced meats, bread, cheese, and then boiled eggs, bacon, frankfurter style sausages, baked beans, and they alternated between fried eggs, scrambled eggs or a little omlette. Our only gripe was that breakfast was only served til 9.30am but if you fancied a lie in there were plenty of other places to get a breakfast. Look out for an Arabian cafe called Deee Light near the petrol station (turn right after you come out of the hotel) - if you have a Continental breakfast you get the *biggest* croissant ever, and a lovely coffee and fresh orange.

We paid the 10 euros each for tea at the Belvedere next door on one of the nights, but felt that there were far too many lovely restaurants to choose from within walking distance of the hotel to go there more than once! Look out for Belmo Palace, lovely Moussaka, pasta and lamb Kleftiko. Also liked Loot (turn right after you get out of the hotel) for lunch. Didn't rate Kipos or Corner Palace, both of those were fairly crap and gave us bad stomachs.

Any evening entertainment was at the Belvedere hotel next door, we went to the Greek night but didn't stay long as it seemed a bit boring and lots of the other people in the room the entertainment was in were smoking. There were lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance, if you spot Veto cocktail bar pop in, if you order a cocktail you get a sparkler in it and a silly stirrer!

The hotel was clean but basic, but fine for the cost. Our room had one or two scuffs/bits of chipped paint. The maids visited every day and gave us clean towels and made the bed up and I think we had the bedding changed once during the week. The reception staff were all really cheerful.

A safety deposit box was 10 euros and air conditioning was 6 euros per day but because of how windy it got and being there in the last week of September we didn't need the air conditioning.

If we go back to Rhodes Town we would be fine staying at the Rhodos Beach Hotel again, the bit of town that it's in is a perfect location for everything :)

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone! It was perfect. The only thing I didn't like about Rhodes Town was the wind, but that was not really that much of a problem and it certainly wasn't cold. The view from our hotel was amazing. The room was nice and clean. The pool was nice, it was empty most of the time (mainly, I think, because it was so cold when you got out because of the wind!). It didn't take long to walk from the hotel to the historical part of Rhodes Old Town. We were bed and breakfast and the breakfast was nice, usual cakes, meats, cheese, eggs, dodgy bacon, beans, etc. I had a croissant every day! We had a couple of snacks at the hotel bar, one being kebab with Tsaziki and it was soooo cheap and absolutely delicious. The only reason we didn't eat there more often was because there were so many gorgeous restaurants in Rhodes Old Town.
