Awarded one of the ten best hotels in Rhodes
“Nestled in a side street in Rhodes Old Town, this revamped 14th-century townhouse has a dash of historic flair, with pebble mosaics, thick stone walls and an inner courtyard. Make sure you book well ahead if you want to get your hands on one of the four rustically elegant rooms (you do, trust us), with oak flooring, antique furnishings, pops of bright colour and (hurrah!) free minibars. Attention to detail shines in fabulous breakfasts which include locally made preserves and homemade Greek yoghurt drizzled with local honey. It’s a romantic pick, with kind owners and a cracking location – just five minutes’ stroll from the Archaeological Museum.“

Hotel Ellique in the heart of Rhodes Old Town
Rhodes Medieval Old Town is the largest in the world with an intact moat & wall reaching all around. Entering through one of the 9 gates is like taking a step back in time. You will discover a bazaar like shopping area where you can find anything from freshly ground Greek coffee to exquisite jewellery. The choice of restaurants, taverns, ouzerias, and cafeterias is breathtaking, as is the sight of the Grand Master Palace. A palace that was the seat of the Grand Master of the Knights of St. John from 1306 to 1522.
The old town is also full of secrets. Enter a small side alley and you will discover a labyrinth of small streets very much inhabited and alive. On one such path you will discover Hotel Ellique. Beautifully located next to a lush park, and carefully hidden away from the hustle and bustle. A place to totally relax, yet just a few blocks away from all of the above.
Pick up a towel and stroll down to Elli beach, linger by the fishing port just outside Kolona gate to see the catch of the day, take a boat ride along the east coast to a hidden cove, go shopping in the new town’s many designer boutiques, or spend an evening in the casino. Well you get the idea…
Hotel Ellique and the Old Town of Rhodes now appear among more than 6’500 self guided walks in 1’000+ cities on GPSmyCity.com, a website that allows you to download and install an app on your iPhone or Android device and then choose among available city walk guides.
