St John’s Gate is the southerly entrance to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the medieval town of Rhodes. Since 1522, this gate has been known as the Red Door as so much blood was spilt defending the gate against the Ottoman conquest of Rhodes in 1522.

The hotel stands just inside the gate on the site of an ancient church and next door (and looked after by the owners of the hotel on behalf of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture) is the 550 year old church of St John which can be visited on 3 days of the week.

Lovingly restored and cared for, the owners have fused luxury with simplicity to create a remarkable and intimate hotel of five, very individual suites. Suites are equipped with Frette linen, slippers and bath robes, Coco-Mat mattresses and pillows (menu available), bathtubs and hydromassage shower cabins, a notebook/tablet for guests’ use, Bluetooth speakers, mini-bar, tea and coffee-making facilities, air conditioning, mini safe and free Wifi.

A courtyard with an ancient Mulberry tree surrounded by a small herb garden completes the picture of this exceptional property. Traditional hot and cold breakfasts are a delight and gastronomy dinners can be pre-arranged. This is a home away from home, a wonderful hotel for a few select guests.
