"A spacious, stylish and welcoming apartment in the heart of Rhodes Old Town"
We were delighted to stay in this apartment which has been transformed from a gallery in Rhodes Old Town. Luxuriously spacious, it was also quiet at night which is quite an achievement given how the Greeks love to party. The lounge room, with an abundance of comfy leather lounges, overlooks one of the medieval town squares. The renovators have left some of the original 11th C floor structure visible through glass panels. Kitchen had most utensils we needed (not all though) to knock up some basic meals and clothes dried quickly outside on the sunny porch. I would be a little wary of very young children staying here if they need the toilet in the middle of the night as it involves a trip down a dark stairwell but ours (6 and 9) were fine. Large and very comfortable beds, plenty of wardrobe storage. Stelios was wonderfully helpful, meeting us late at night upon arrival to walk us to the apartment and instantly contactable during the reservation process, as was his shop manager in the store below (you may want to question the use of the word 'donation' on the receipt of your payment for the stay though...). Very relaxing stay in Rhodes.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you and we hope to see you again soon. Best Stelios

"Lovely apartment.....very central location"
Old Gallery is a beautiful converted apartment. It was apparently an art gallery which has been converted into a split level apartment which has been meticulously furnished for a family.
We are were staying with our 13 months old baby and it was very comfortable and spacious.
Our baby boy was unfortunately unwell and Ms Christina who was managing the apartment in Stelios's absence was nothing less then exceptional, she was very helpful and helped us to find local pharmacy as well the usual local attractions and restaurants.
As our baby boy was unwell we spent a lot of time at the apartment and we found the apartment very cosy and enjoyed soaking the charm from the comfort of our apartment.
Definitely recommend this to anyone staying in Rhodes Town.
Thank you for such a glowing recommendation, and for being so helpful and considerate a guest. Please come again!
