We stayed at this hotel in september for 1 week, which was long enough to see Rhodes Town and Ixia, not other resorts. Hotel is situated just right for the beach + town centre + the famous harbour, you can walk into town in 25 minutes along the seafront walkway or ten minute up a steep hill at the back of the hotel. The local bus is 20 yards away on the main road and costs 1 euro into town or 2 euro into Ixia one way, you can take the bus into town and catch other buses arround the island, Faliraki ect., as all the buses stop at the new market, you cannot get lost. also there are boat trips to Turkey, which takes 45 minutes to Marmaris, visit SYMI, LINDOS and other islands or a round trip of rhodes itself. There are numerous things to do and places to visit. A little train goes arround the area on the hour 5 euro's each. A sun lounger + brolly are 8 euro's a day on the beach, be aware the beach at this side of the island is very windy and is known as windy beach, very stoney and not sandy you will need beach shoes in this area but I liked it better than the crowded beach at the harbour end, the sunbeds are packed in outside the big hotels, sorry I forget the names of the beaches. The hotel Kipriotis is a very standard hotel the rooms are small and the bathroom is tiny but ad'equate as you have a shower + loo and sink. Sheets are changed 3 times in the week as are the towels the rooms are very clean, the staff very helpful, we had a sea view with a small balcony with 2 chairs + a table on + washing line. Beds are very low but comfortable, a safe will cost you 10 euro a week which I think is very reasonable and air conditioning 4 euro a day, I found I would not have managed without this. There is only one lift for the whole of the hotel and some rooms are down stairs which is not served by a lift making it a struggle with luggage.Food is average but you can always find something you like, salads, fish, chicken, pork,pizza, every day lamb bolognaise, soup, pasta, rice, chips, in the morning yogurt, fruit,( tinned not fresh ) , toast, croisants, jams, marmalade, scrambled egg, boiled egg, bacon, spicy sausage, coffee. tea, orange, grapefruit juice, cereals, feta cheese, processed meats, cheese slices and salad a very good selection. I have 2 grumbles you only get one choice in the evening for your dessert mostly water melon my other grumble on a Saturday night you have to pay 7 euro's for a Greek night if you are half board or be down to dinner between 6.30 and out for 7, if you do not pay, and 13 euros if you are b/b, we chose this night to go out. You have choice of drinks at dinner for which you pay extra.The greek night is very noisy till 12.30 am. there are themed nights for meals Italian, chinese and the greek night.Our room was just above the bar, number 123, I had to wear ear plugs every night, as I am not a night person I get up early and love to go out. I always think there are ways arround holiday problems, it is a case of when in Rome!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I would go back to Rhodes Town it is great there is certainly more to do than you can possibly do in one week. The taxi's have a set price to this hotel or Rhodes town from the airport it is 18 euro one way, the Greeks also share a taxi as in Cyprus we found this, if there are only 2 peple they will let other peple going your way in the same cab, there is a board at the rank on the harbour to state how much it is to each resort. cruise ships dock every day and you can walk along the harbour walls also there is a walkway right up to the outskirts of the resort . There were not many British at the hotel whilst we were there, but I liked the different cultures.The casle where the crusades and the knights lived is wonderful the tiny streets are still the same as they were, it comes alive on a night traders are selling everything touristy of course but great, restaurants are numerous and they want you in their's and will have you eating 24/7. Artists sell their art and all mannor of stalls are on the harbour the atmosphere is magic, I went through every gateway into the casle and beleive me there are many, we had the best weather and a great holiday. The light and sound show is not on this year which I would have loved to see, as it enacts the siege of the castle and brings history alive. drinks are not cheap and with euro being so low ( 94 cents to the pound ) was all we were getting sometimes it cost 9 euro for 2 pints of lager, there are happy hours but not on a night mainly lunch and very early evening.
