This place was underwhelming to say the best. For the price, and the four stars it claimed, I was expecting free internet, but I would have even accepted working internet.

Rhodes is a religious island too, with Greek Orthodox churches everywhere, and tiny roadside models of them, like little chapels, where a fatal accident has taken place.
