TRANSFER from & to the AIRPORT or PORT
 

BEST WAY:  Pre-Booked Pickup by TAXI licensed to drive in the Medieval Town.

An English-speaking driver will be at the Arrivals Area with your name on a sign. He will bring you to our doorstep (instead of being dropped off or having to park outside the Old Town).

BOOK your Pickup Taxi Transfer: contact Christos directly.

He is a taxi owner-driver, leading a group of excellent colleagues.

All information (including last-minute changes) will be correctly and instantly communicated.

Contact him anytime between now and 36 hours before your arrival.   

Email: [email protected]  Mob: +306946103929

He needs to have your:

  • Name.

  • Mobile phone number

  • Flight number (or name of ferry)

  • Origin

  • Estimated time of arrival and

  • Number of passengers

The fare per car is €37 (from the airport) or €17 (from the port), paid directly to the driver in cash. Taxis in Rhodes are not equipped to accept credit cards. 

If cash in euros is a problem when you arrive, we will be happy to pay the driver for you.

NOTE: The biggest cars that can drive through the Medieval Town gates are Mercedes sedans. They can only take up to four adult passengers and a reasonable volume of luggage. If necessary, a second taxi will need to be booked. Minivans are too big for the Old Town.


 

SECOND BEST WAY:  A TAXI found at the airport’s or port’s taxi rank.

They charge much less: €25 or €10 respectively, also paid in cash to the driver.

However:

  • You will be dropped off outside the Old Town

  • Queuing and/or waiting may be required (depending on the day and time)
 

BUSSES: We advise you AGAINST this kind of transfer.


 
DRIVING A RENTAL CAR from the Port or Airport.
 

Although we encourage all our guests to rent cars as the best and easiest way to enjoy more of what Rhodes has to offer, we also 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 a car there at the end of your stay may be a very good idea.

Some of the reasons are:

  • Almost none of our guests use a car on their first (or even second) day in Rhodes. They prefer to explore the Medieval Town before visiting other places of the island.

  • When you firstly arrive, driving to the Old Town and finding the right Gate may be challenging. Everything is much easier and familiar the second day.

  • Driving your car into the Medieval Town is not allowed. All rented cars need to be parked outside, near St. John's Gate.

  • We are not allowed to offer luggage or persons’ transfer from any of the Gates to the Hotel. 

  • If your departure is in the afternoon or evening, you can put your luggage in the car after checking out, go to places you have saved for the last day and drop the car off at the port or airport. Your last day will be much more interesting and you will save the cost of a taxi transfer to the airport.

As soon as you decide that it is time to rent a car, we can ask a company of your choice to bring one at St. John's gate, where you can also drop it off.

 
IMPORTANT: See our MAP about where NOT TO PARK every Wednesday night. On Thursdays there is a Farmers' Market in the little square near the Gate. 
 

 
DIRECTIONS TO THE HOTEL   
 

Our Hotel is 120m from the St. John's Gate or "KÓKKINI PORTA", as the locals call it. 

KÓKKINI PORTA ROSSA is the first building you encounter. It has a roofed balcony and a red door that can't be missed.
