Elaphos & Elaphina

Distance from Rhodes City: 65Km Add your review about Elaphos & Elaphina

The hotel is on mount Prophetes Elias, near the Byzantine monastery with the same name. It comprises two buildings, a three-storeyed one, "Elaphos" and a two-storeyed one, "Elaphina", both with a basement and a high pitched, wooden roof. The walls are built of stones in a cement frame, while all the window frames and balconies are made of wood.

The "Elaphos" hotel was the first part built by the italians in 1929 (Albergo del Cervo). In 1930, a ground floor restaurant with a large veranda, a tennis court and a dancing floor were added while later on, the second floor was constructed, replacing the veranda. In 1932 the building was extended with a new wing, called "Elaphina". Thus, the hotel was finally named "Elaphos and Elaphina" after a certain species of deer that lives in the woods nearby.


The Elaphos Hotel, which was abandoned for many decades, has been newly restored and is now full in operation.
It offers an excellent place for those who wish to spend some time in peace and relax in the environment of a mountain.
If you do not wich to stay there, it is still worth a visit for a coffee in the cafeteria or a meal in the restaurant.
It is worth mentioning that there has been much efford to keep the original style and feeling of the hotel characteristics, exterior and interior.

A Fairy Tale Place to Visit & Enjoy

We think it is THE best hotel in Rhodos. We had spent in this lovely fairy tale excellent hotel,
our honey moon week, the last week of August 1982. i.e. almost 25 years ago!
We hope we could revisit it again this summer, in commemoration of our marriage silver jubilee.

Thrilled to know that this historical hotel has been restored to its former glory. The surrounding area is beautiful; the vista is magnificent. This is a "must visit" place in Rhodos!
A beautiful spot!

This is a beautiful mountainous spot with overwhelming views. One can still go into the upper area of the hotel and imagine what parties were held there by prominent Italians up to World War II.
