About Mystic Hotel
Walking through the streets of the breathtaking Medieval City of Rhodes, Mystic Hotel invites you in an atmosphere that seems to derive straight from the Medieval Times. Ruins dated even from the14th century remained there when we as its present owners had the vision of reconstructing it, meticulously and sensitively restoring the place into an inspired maison hotel. The mysticism of the place evokes the different architectures from various historic eras, predominantly those of the Knights of St. John.
Based on centuries-old groundwork, surrounded by stunning multi culture architecture, the Mystic Hotel is truly a haven of the long and stormy history of Rhodes reflecting it clearly with its architecture and design. Minimal yet medieval aesthetics and ergonomic architectural design outline supremely the rooms as a tribute to the long history and the civilization influences of the place.
It is our goal that our guests experience inspired accommodation in privacy and like-home comfort. We are personally involved in the operating of the hotel in order to guarantee that you have the best possible experience. We strive to provide you with friendly and dedicated attention from the moment you make your reservation.
Our aim is to take the experience of your stay one step further: taste the fresh fruits, honey, milk and local traditional products especially brought for your breakfast, experience our homemade menu under the moonlight, discover the city through a photography seminar guided walk or other special interest activities. There is so much to do and see in the beautiful island of Rhodes: the people, the history, the nature whether it be your holiday destination or one visit amongst the other Aegean islands. Let us be your guide and help to customized holiday planning! Please relax and indulge yourself in an unprecedented experience of hospitality! Welcome!
