GETTING TO THE HOTEL: THIS IS THE WAY.

How to easily find your way to the hotel
When you firstly arrive, finding the way to the Old Town and the right Gate can be confusing.
We suggest that upon arrival you get a taxi. This will be the fastest and easiest way to get to the hotel. It can be done in 2 ways:
1. Have a taxi arranged to pick you up at the terminal and bring you to our doorstep. The fare is €36 (airport) or €17 (port), payable to the driver.
Prices include waiting time (even if your arrival is delayed) and driving to our doorstep INSIDE the Old Town (only by taxis with a permit for that). The driver will be at the arrival gate with your name on a sign and help you with your luggage.
If you wish to have this service and be sure that your transfer will be error-free, please contact CHRISTOS directly. He is a taxi owner-driver, who leads a group of 4 very carefully selected colleagues.
You need to contact him at least 48 hours prior to your arrival with all necessary details: name, mobile phone number, flight number / name of ferry, origin, arrival time.
We highly recommend this kind of transfer, which, most of the times, is well worth the price difference.
NOTE: Taxis in Rhodes are not equipped to accept credit cards. If you don't have cash when you arrive, we will gladly pay the driver for you.
2. Get one of the taxis found outside the terminal. They charge €25 (airport) and €10 (port).
You may have to wait in line for a while, if there are many arrivals at the same time. Please note that these taxis don't drive inside the Old Town. You will be dropped off at St. John’s Gate, 120m from the hotel. It is an easy walk, especially if your luggage is light or has wheels.
PLEASE NOTE: If you arrive on a ferry or a yacht, it may not be necessary to take a taxi:
You will disembark at a distance of 900m to 1.200m from the hotel.
If the day is not too hot and your luggage not too heavy, you can walk through the Old Town, entering from the gate nearest where your ferry dropped you off. The way is slightly uphill and some streets are paved with pebbles (luggage wheels don’t like them).
Follow one of the maps and the directions found above and call us for any assistance.
- Buses connecting the airport and Rhodes Town travel almost every half hour. A one-way ticket costs €2.60. The bus stop is located 300m to the left of the terminal. Journey time to the city of Rhodes is around 40 minutes. HOWEVER, from the bus station you will need to walk to the hotel (20 min, 1.5 km) or take a taxi to St. John’s Gate (€5). Finding a taxi can be challenging during the tourist season.
- No buses run from the port to the hotel.
- TO OUR GUESTS WHO WANT TO RENT A CAR
We encourage our guests to rent cars, so that they enjoy more of what Rhodes has to offer.
At the same time, we let them know that picking a car up at the port or the airport and driving to the hotel is unnecessary and can be frustrating.
However, dropping it off there, depending on the time of your departure, can make a lot of sense.
Some of the reasons are:
Almost none of our guests use a car during their first (or even second) day in Rhodes. They prefer to explore the Old Town before visiting other places on the island.
Driving to the Old Town and finding the right Gate when you firstly arrive, may be complicated. Everything will be much easier and familiar the second day.
If your departure is in the afternoon or evening, you can check-out after breakfast, put your luggage in the car, go to places you have saved for the last day and drop the car off before departure. Your last day will be much more interesting and you will save the cost of a taxi transfer to the airport.
Please note that driving your car into the Old Town is not allowed. A special permit is required for that.
Our guests' cars need to be parked outside the Old Town, next to the Gate of St. John (or “KÓKKINI PORTA”). Parking there is free and safe.
IMPORTANT: On Thursdays there is an Open Market on the little square near the Gate. Try not to park your car there, starting Wednesday night.
A soon as you decide that you actually need to rent a car, we can ask a company of your choice to deliver one at the hotel.
Driving in Rhodes town and on the island is safe and pleasant. You are going to have a lovely time.
Although our hotel is inside the Old Town, it can be easily found and reached.
The Gate nearest to us is "KÓKKINI PORTA", or Gate of St. John. Remember that when you ask for directions or take a taxi.
The distance from the gate to the hotel is 120m, a lovely walk on a slate-paved road.
You pass two bridges and three arches. The hotel is the first building after the third arch.
It has a roofed balcony and a red door.
