Bottom Line

With six uniquely designed medieval rooms, the Spirit of the Knights is an intimate and romantic escape on a cobblestone street in the heart of Rhodes. The upscale property has a hot tub in a charming courtyard, free-made-to-order breakfast, a bar with brick archways, and free Wi-Fi. Each room is furnished with flat-screen TVs, Greek antiques, and hand-carved furnishings. The family-run hotel is a five- to 10-minute drive from the harbor, and within walking distance of restaurants and bars. Taxis drop guests off as close to the hotel as possible, but not directly at the door, as the property is set on a narrow street. Guests seeking a hotel closer to the water could try the Cava D’oro Hotel.

Scene

A quiet medieval getaway with eco-friendly and modern touches

A stay at the Spirit of the Knights Boutique Hotel feels like accepting an exclusive invitation to a Greek family home that is as rich in history as the cobblestone streets in the ancient city of Rhodes. New guests are welcomed with a refreshing drink in a lobby, which resembles a private study, with arched stone doorways, intricate iron lighting fixtures, and hand-carved wooden accents. The owners collaborated with a local architect to maintain original features of the Crusaders-built hotel, while also adding a bit of modernity (air-conditioning, heat, free Wi-Fi in common areas). The hotel displays collectibles from Greece, Persia, Asia, Turkey, and Morocco. There’s a small library -- several shelves with Charles Dickens books and other classics -- in the salon, which has wood-beamed ceilings, medieval-inspired chandeliers, large windows, stained glass accents, a chess table, and benches covered in velvet cloth. The grounds are elegant and serene, with white stone stairways, seating nooks, and lush green plants.

Map of Spirit of the Knights Boutique Hotel

The hotel is located on a quiet cobblestone street in northern Rhodes, the medieval town named a UNESCO heritage site in 1988. The city dates back to 408 BC. From the hotel it is a quick drive to the Grand Master's Palace (six minutes), Acropolis of Rhodes, and Ancient Olympic Stadium (both a few minutes). The airport by cab takes 24 minutes. Driving to Mandraki Harbour takes five minutes, and a trip to Kolona Harbour takes seven minutes. A luxury cruise to Turkey and other locales can be arranged through the hotel. Restaurants, bars, and tourist sites are all in walking distance.

Rooms

Architecturally unique rooms with medieval touches and flat-screen TVs

Each suite -- the Knights Chamber, Ottoman Suite, Crusader Suite, Rodos Suite, Grand Masters Suite, and the Pasha Suite -- is architecturally unique with distinctive interior design. Rooms have accents from the Crusaders’ period, marble floors, ceilings with timber beams, stained glass accents, wooden lattice, hand-blown lighting fixtures, and nice extras: safes, beach towels, slippers, flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and bottled water. Some rooms have views of the courtyard. The Pasha Suite has a private Hammam. The Ottoman Suite has a second level with a daybed and an intricate wooden carved railing. Bathrooms have rain showerheads, marble accents, wood-beamed ceilings, and modern fixtures.

Features

An enchanting courtyard with a hot tub, and a cave-like bar

A lovely courtyard -- including lanterns, tropical plants, and flowers -- has a small hot tub on a raised wooden platform, along with carved wooden door frames and white cushioned-lounge chairs. Stylish white chairs and tables are also placed in the sun and under a beige canopy tent near a small fountain. The hotel entrance is a small iron gate in an ancient stone wall that leads out to a narrow, medieval Rhodes street. The hotel bar, on the ground floor, is designed with dark wood-beamed ceilings, stone archways, and arched wooden doors that lead to a small patio. This small hotel is committed to being eco-friendly by using natural materials, solar energy, and recycled paper, along with other sustainable measures.
