We found a derelict house in the Medieval Town of Rhodes and turned it into a hotel. While restoring it, we fell in love with the house, its past, and the people who used to live in it.
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.
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.
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 jaw-dropping luxury sensation in itself.
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 way 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 its treasure of information and daily personalized itineraries.
Our own reward is the sense of pride and accomplishment we feel for the Philoxenía* extended to our guests, the positive effect to our community and our hotel’s minimal impact to the environment.
* Warm and caring hospitality for those away from their homes. A sacred value to ancient Greeks.
