What We Are Like
We found a derelict house in Rhodes’ Medieval Town and turned it into a hotel. While restoring it, we fell in love with the house, its past, and those who used to live in it.
Guests are welcome in the way things used to be: We care for and about them, as if they were visitors to our own home. Friendships are often forged.
More than a hotel, the boutique experience at Kókkini Porta Rossa is a design delight: old world beauty, quality, and style matched with modern touches and comforts.
Perfectly situated within the walls of the Medieval Town, the proudly restored 14th century knight’s residence with its antiques, artifacts and carpets is a luxury sensation.
Six beautifully appointed, spacious suites display a passion for comfort, décor, and class.
Minute attention to detail, fascinating pieces of art, colourful courtyards, shining silverware, “dramatic” bathrooms belong to a class well above commercial hotels.
A multi-course breakfast of regional, delicious offerings to satisfy the pickiest of eaters is a daily surprise for its creativity.
Its lovingly prepared dishes served in a shady courtyard, beautifully presented together with the stories behind the food, start our guests’ days with a trip around East Mediterranean and the Orient.
Evenings set a perfectly lighted space in the garden.
If the mood is right, Paris shares with the rest of us some of his piano moments.
Complimentary wines and drinks are served, while the day’s highlights are being discussed, and restaurant suggestions for the dinner to follow are exchanged.
Our guests’ experience would be less than complete, if not for our infectious passion for Rhodes, the tailored recommendations, the user-friendly tablet with our Web App, its treasure of information, and the daily personalized itineraries.
We, on the other hand, take home a sense of pride for the Philoxenía* extended to our guests, for the positive effect to our community, and for our minimal impact to the environment.
Yet, our richest reward is the feeling of touching people’s lives.
* Philoxenía, a value sacred to the ancient Greeks, is the warm and caring hospitality offered to those away from their homes.
