Located on a quiet street a couple of walkable blocks from Paddington Station, the Rhodes Hotel feeds you a nice English breakfast. You can watch Greek TV in your room if you like (British TV, too). And the hotel offers free in-room broadband Internet. But there is no elevator, so be ready for the stairs. The en suite bathrooms have recently been enlarged and upgraded showers added. Guests will love longtime owners Chris and Maria. Uncommercial and comfy.
