Where to Stay in Lindos on a Budget (Under $75 USD per Night)
Chrysa Studios sits beautifully on top of the hill with one of the best views of the town and the Acropolis of Lindos. Expect a bit of exercise before you can reach this lovely property – but it is worth it for those views! It also is quite difficult to book, so if you see it available, it’s worth snagging it early. The prices are really low and you can snatch a private room deal for as low as around $47 USD for two – a price that’s hard to beat in Lindos!
They have a total of 10 studio rooms which are not too big, but it will be just right for 2 or 3 people traveling. The economy rooms do not have a view, so if you prefer one, look for a triple room instead which have a great view. The beds are simple yet enough for a nice comfortable sleep, as the property is in a nice quiet location too. Don’t worry about having enough space, because they have common areas like a kitchen where you can cook and a terrace where you can just relax, sit, and enjoy the views of Lindos and the Acropolis.
However, there is a downside to its location being up in the hills, as the WiFi connection can be sometimes a bit troublesome (we’ll note that WiFi in Greece is generally not the best). This can be easily remedied by bringing your own local SIM card or activating the roaming plan on your phone, but do keep this in mind in case WiFi is a dealbreaker for you on your tirip.
Lindos Blue Sky
Lindos Blue Sky offers studio rooms and apartments set in a quiet location with budget-friendly rates. The aparthotel complex has been operating for almost 11 years, since 2008. One of its best features is a garden where you can hear birds singing in the morning and crickets in the evening — you’ll truly feel swept away from it all here. It’s the perfect place to try sitting in one of the wicker cocoon chairs and letting it swing, enjoying the breeze and solitude.
What’s so great about their rooms are the choices! They have doubles, 2-bedroom apartments, and family studio apartments: great for virtually every kind of group. It is also spacious and fully-furnished, and past guests have reported that the beds are amazingly comfortable. The location is also very quiet so there’s no need to soundproof the rooms – time for a little cricket chirping ASMR to help you sleep! Aside from their superb room facilities, you can also try buying seafood at one of the nearby markets and fire up the grill outside.
The on-site Lindos Ice Bar Restaurant offers fusion Greek and Mediterranean menus, as well as unique cocktails and snacks. You can also inform them of any dietary requirements you have so they can provide you a special menu.
The property offers 1 or 2-bedroom rooms that have a nice view of either the garden or the sea. All rooms feature complete amenities to make you feel at home. Each unit has a kitchenette, fridge, flat-screen TV, as well as a dining table (with a high chair available for children upon request). It only has a total of 4 apartments available for guests, so there’s a little bit of pressure to book as early as you can, since it is a good choice for groups or families on a budget.
If you want to go on a road trip around the coast, then you can ask them to assist you with car rentals. Unfortunately, the property doesn’t have its own parking spaces but you can park in the available spaces in town. However, parking in Lindos can be a bit of a hassle, so I wouldn’t recommend it if you can help it.
The rooms are simple and mostly dominated by hues of blue which just scream “Greek islands in the summer.” The walls are also painted with blue that makes it look like there are ripples of water. The hosts are very nice and all past guests remember the treatment they gave them – plus, the property is also very clean!
Note that the bathrooms are a little small, and the shower area is just beside the toilet, which is a bit of a downside. There is a shower curtain, but the toilet area can still get wet floors. However, towels, toiletries and slippers are provided for each guest.
This is probably one of the best options for families who want a location that’s close to the center but set in a quieter area of Lindos. Villa Mika has spacious 1-bedroom apartments, and it has separate areas dedicated to the kitchen and dining area, living room, private bathroom, and the bedroom. The bedroom has steel bed frames with comfortable mattresses, perfect for a good night’s sleep.
The ground floor of each apartment has a living area with huge sofas that can actually serve as additional beds if needed. You can also entertain guests here and cook a nice meal for them anytime with your well-equipped kitchen. The terrace is connected to the hallways, and there’s outdoor furniture here where you can lounge. There is also some shade provided on the terrace, which helps block midday heat from the sun.
The private bathrooms are admittedly a little dated and look a bit old, but they are large and have a dressing area, toiletries and a washing machine for your dirty laundry (perfect for a longer stay in Lindos). If you don’t have anyone else to leave your kids, you can ask them to arrange baby sitters to watch over your kids for you while you enjoy a night out in town. Strollers are also available in case you need one — just arrange it with the property (great if you don’t want to pack a ton of kids’ stuff with you on your trip!)
Depending on the season, a night’s stay for 2 people can be under $75 USD a night – it is a good price considering basically everything you need is provided! Their front desk can assist you with fun activities like diving, fishing, and golfing. You can also have your currency exchanged directly on-site should you require more euros on your trip!
Aphrodite White Studios Lindos
Aphrodite White Studios offers 14 studios and apartments. It is perfectly located near the town, and you can just walk around 2-3 minutes to the beach — the location doesn’t get much better than this, especially on a budget price.
If you are lucky, you can get the room with a lovely view of the Acropolis — keep an eye out during sunrise or sunset for something really memorable! Other rooms offer a sea or garden view, and there’s also some outdoor furniture on all of their balconies so you can sit and enjoy the sea breeze.
For families and groups of travelers, their apartments can allow up to five guests in a unit. All rooms feature a private bathroom, closet, A/C, heating, and a kitchenette with fridge. The décor and style of the rooms is simple – not so unique, but comfortable and with everything in good condition.
However, note that sometimes, the music from the café beside the property can be quite loud. You can just shut the windows and close the doors (thankfully there is A/C so this won’t create a stuffy atmosphere in the summer). If this is something that bothers you, then you may inform the host beforehand to see if there is a quieter room available – past guests have said they’re really nice!
Mid-Range Places to Stay in Lindos ($75-150 USD / Night)
Lindos View Hotel
Lindos View Hotel is an environmentally-friendly hotel with very modern amenities. It has some very light touches of medieval design in some areas, in keeping with the Rhodes Old Town vibe!
It is a little bit on the upper mid-range price due to its great amenities, but you can expect really spacious rooms that are beautifully furnished and complete with all the luxury features you’d expect. The rooms are very clean thanks to daily housekeeping. Ensuite bathrooms are complete with toiletries, and there is a separate wet and dry area. You can choose from a room with a mezzanine (Athina), a deluxe 1-bedroom apartment, or a deluxe studio.
Breakfast is included with every night you stay, starting daily at 8 AM. For dinner, it would be great to try the nearby tavernas, though there is also a restaurant on-site. Every week they have a BBQ night and the karaoke bar goes full steam (a bit noisy but fun)!
You can also try some of the pastas, burgers, and other snacks at their bar in the lounge, or if you want to dine Greek-style then you can go to their Thea Restaurant and enjoy a traditional Greek meal. A must try at the restaurant would be their Greek platter and some of their local wines — amazing. All meals are made free from chemicals and additives, and they ensure that only fresh ingredients are used. Great for the health-conscious individuals and families amongst us!
If you need more cash, they have an on-site ATM as well as a currency exchange desk. There is also luggage storage at the front desk, just in case you arrive early or have an evening flight. This is a definite advantage over a lot of the apartment-style accommodations in Lindos. The outdoor pool is available for all to use (seasonal) in case you don’t want to spend all your time by the beach, and sun loungers are provided free of charge.
Comfy Suites is located in one of the traditional parts of Lindos, and it has a terrace with a lovely view — you might just end up staying there most of the time! There are seating areas on each terrace, and some even have sun loungers so you can sit back and relax as you soak in the beautiful views in front of you.
The rooms are almost completely white, if not for some tiny pops of color coming from the chairs, wooden furniture, and the sheets. Hypoallergenic furnishings and products are used so it’s great for those amongst us with allergies.
They have a couple of room types to choose from; the ones in the higher tier will give you a view of the beautiful Acropolis. Each room has its own private bathroom, coffee and tea making facilities, minibar, and clothes iron. They provide O.live bath products for free, which smells really nice (the olive + green tea is such a relaxing scent!).
It is easy to find a restaurant nearby to have a nice breakfast, but you can also get one on-site for $15 USD (which is a bit pricy, but good if you don’t want to go searching for food first thing in the day). The service desk can also assist you with luggage storage, car rentals, and tours or activities.
Lindos Sun Hotel
Someone looking for a relaxing escape should definitely consider staying at the Lindos Sun Hotel. The hotel makes use of local and traditional Lindian décor to complete the look of its interiors. It is also one of the best hotels to stay for families and couples. The entire hotel will remind you a bit of those in Santorini, with white walls and touches of blue. It is also a hotel that’s certified by Travelife for their sustainable practices!
They have room options depending on the number of guests and amenities you want. There are classic, superior, premium, and even suites that have their own private pool or hot tub! All of the rooms are cleaned daily. Comfortable Coco-mat mattresses are used in each room, which helps avoid bacteria growth and allows airflow so that you will have a more relaxing night of sleep.
The private bathrooms are a tad bit small, but you have an enclosed shower with glass walls so that the toilet area won’t get wet. Bath and body products are also included, along with some towels and slippers.
Breakfast and dinner are included in your stay – which makes it even a better deal! Breakfast is served at 7 AM and dinner is around 7:30 PM. Before you eat your dinner, you can even ask them for a complimentary apéritif! If you have time, you can check their wellness facilities, spa, and salon for a totally relaxing experience!
Lindos Village Resort and Spa
This Lindos hotel is exclusively for adults, so this is best for couples who are off for a nice honeymoon or just prefer a chid-free atmosphere. It was built in 1985, and it has recently been renovated in 2017 to please more of their guests and renovate the resort to be a total sanctuary of comfort and relaxation.
Another great thing about this hotel is its proximity to the beach. Even if it is just a few minutes’ walk away, you can actually take their free transfers for a more convenient trip back and forth.
The rooms and suites are simply designed, with caramel colors that make the rooms seem warm and inviting. Each room has tiled floors and basic furniture, plus a working desk, which can also act as a dresser because of the clear half-length mirror on the wall. Most of the rooms have a balcony that faces the sea to give you a relaxing coastal view.
Since the name of the resort has the word spa in it, expect tons of wellness facilities offered! Aside from the pools, they have yoga classes, a fitness gym, body treatments, a hair salon, and massages. Parking on-site is free, and the complex is large so there are secured spaces available.
The bus station is a bit far from the resort, so it’s quite a walk to get there. Anyways, there’s always an easy solution to this, especially when it’s hot – you can get their shuttle service which is available every hour!
Mascot Lindos Traditional Rooms
If you want to live like a local in a traditional Lindian house, then this guest house is something that you can book. There are only 2 rooms so that means there won’t be much noise and traffic in common areas. Most of the furniture used in the house is rustic and a little bit dated – it takes you a back to a certain time.
The rooms have pebbled floors with nice patterns decorated in it. Old chests were used as side tables and cute ceramic cups and a kettle are there to help you get your daily dose of caffeine. The bed frames are made out of wood and the mattress is a bit smaller than the frame itself – which is okay so long as your feet won’t get numb.
The garden is directly accessible once you step out of your room. The wooden doors were intentionally made to look like it has been worn out – but it is still in good working condition. Most of the floors in the kitchen and private bathrooms are a nice cool shade of blue. You will also be provided with towels, toiletries and a hairdryer just like in a hotel.
Mascot Lindos Traditional Rooms offer a lower mid-range price for their rooms. This is probably one of the best resorts to book for a bigger group of up to 8 people and the cost would only be $276 USD which is like $34.5 per head. That’s a price you can’t beat!
Luxury Places to Stay in Lindos ($150+/Night)
Mitsis Lindos Memories Resort & Spa
This 5-star resort makes use of Italian-inspired style architecture that’s perfect for a romantic vacation. It is also one of the adults-only properties in Lindos, so it’s perfect for a couple on a honeymoon or romantic trip. Each room has its own balcony with an outdoor coffee table where you can see the sea or the beautiful rocky landscapes of Lindos.
The rooms have a fresh atmosphere because of the plain white walls, sheets, and curtains, which are refreshed by hints of blue from the chairs, headboard or sofa. A minibar is available in all rooms. You can also use the Nespresso coffee machine that they refill with new capsules daily (a feature I, as a certified caffeine addict, always appreciate).
Since breakfast and dinner is included, you have really nice choices for what to eat at their Navarone Restaurant, and with their large menu you won’t find it repetitive! Unfortunately, drinks are not included, so keep this in mind when ordering. During dinner hours, dress in the restaurant is smart casual, so be sure to bring some long pants or trousers so you don’t go hungry!
If you want to explore some Mediterranean dishes, you can try their Lindia Tavern. At night, you can party like the Greeks do in their Apollo Bar! It offers a nice selection of mocktails and cocktails plus live music to keep the vibe going.
Melenos Lindos Exclusive Suites
Every corner of the Melenos Lindos Exclusive Suites pays strict attention to detail from the floors and ceilings and down to the décor and furniture.
They used polished pebbles and paved tile floors to create impressive designs and patterns and furnished the terrace with comfortable upholstered seating outdoors. Some plants in beautiful pots are also displayed. You will love how well they mix and match all the traditional Greek elements into something that still exudes comfort and convenience for modern travelers.
It’s an intimate property with just 12 suites — and all have a welcome treat of a bottle of wine. The A/C’s temperature is controllable by the guests, so that you can pick your ideal temperature. There are also Coco-mat mattresses and pillows all covered in Frette brand linens (towels too!).
When you step into the bathroom, you will see premium Korres bath and body products (a wonderful and gentle Greek line of beauty products which I love!), as well as a hairdryer and a mirror framed in mosaic pebbles. Newlyweds can get their honeymoon suite – yes, you will also notice that a lot of their guests are couples.
In terms of food, you’ll be spoiled for choice. If you want to dine outdoors then you can go to their rooftop restaurant, but if you want a more private and indoor dining experience then Fouli is your best option, which offers upscale dining in a beautiful setting.
Casita Casita Lindos
Note that this is an adults only property, therefore kids are not allowed to stay in this apartment hotel.
Some rooms have mezzanines with an additional bed. They can only allow up to a maximum of 4 people for their king suite (which is one of the biggest).
The rooms make use of either colorful rugs and bed covers, giving you a whimsical look. They have double casements windows in all their 7 suites so you can open them up to enjoy the sea breeze. If you have a preference on the view, then you can request for one that’s either facing the garden, city or the sea. Only the triple rooms have a balcony.
If you do not have time to stroll around nearby for breakfast, then you can get one at the hotel for $17 USD. It is a bit pricey just for breakfast, but it is actually worth it, most guests have said — the breakfast is that good.
You can also check their fun tours and activities offered. There are cooking classes, local and cultural tours, dinner nights, and bike or walking tours, all of which your hosts are happy to help you book!

Luxury hotels in Lindos are one of the best choices for where to stay in Greece for honeymooners. Caesars Gardens Hotel & Spa is also a perfect place for a well-deserved and relaxing experience with the best spa facilities, even if you’re not on a honeymoon!
The hotel makes use of rustic and traditional outdoor furniture for most of their outdoor space. Different trees like palms and banana trees create a tropical paradise atsmophere in the hotel. The halls and floors are also covered with different pebbles and rocks, so you really feel at one with nature with all the comforts of a luxury hotel – the best of both worlds!
Each room is well-decorated, and they mostly use natural fiber and wicker for the furniture. Some rustic and antique pieces were also added to create drama and interest. The pricier rooms even have a private pool where you can take a dip to beat the heat.
Restaurant Tárate also serves traditional Greek breakfast and Aegean dinner. On Sundays, the hotel hosts “Seafood Nights” where they will have a seafood buffet with freshly caught fish, and couples will be provided with a bottle of wine. They also have a farm on site! You can get your organic eggs and vegetables fresh and delivered to the kitchen for a nice healthy breakfast, straight from the farm.

5 Things to Bring with You for a Lindos Vacation
We have an entire Rhodes packing list that includes exactly what to bring to Rhodes in all seasons, but here are some essentials you don’t want to miss!
A Guidebook – While travel blogs are great, we also definitely see the benefit of having a good paper guidebook in hand to refer to in your on-the-ground travel. We own and recommend the Lonely Planet Greece for a great guidebook on the ground.
Sunscreen: Yes, you will want sunscreen in Rhodes, no matter the time of year. While you can buy it here, I suggest you buy the good stuff from recognizable brands or better yet, buy it online in advance. I love this solid Neutrogena sunscreen. Who doesn’t love a good solid for liquid swap? Great to keep in your bag without worrying about sunscreen explosions.
Motion sickness pills: Great for bus rides especially on winding roads – I buy these non-drowsy ones. You can also try these natural motion sickness bands which use acupressure to reduce nausea – they actually work pretty well.
– A water bottle with a filter. While often, the tap water in Greece is drinkable, there are places where it isn’t. Always ask before drinking the water. We generally recommend using a water bottle with a purifying filter to reduce your plastic consumption and ensure you won’t drink any bad water that could make your trip unpleasant! We recommend the GRAYL water bottle – it filters water perfectly (literally – 99.999% free of viruses, bacteria, etc.) in an instant so that you can even drink from lakes, bad taps, etc. – basically everything but the sea itself.
– Travel safety items. We think Lindos is very safe to travel, but at the same time, it never hurts to be prepared! Some people like to carry money belts, but neither Stephanie or I use these. Instead, we both carry the same PacSafe anti-theft backpack. It has locking zippers, slash-proof construction with metal mesh hidden in the fabric, and tons of other smart security features — all while being cute and stylish enough to be our everyday bag. We recommend it highly for both male and female travelers, as it’s neutral enough to be unisex. We also recommend travel insurance! Our recommendation is at the bottom of the post.

Finally, Make Sure You Come to Rhodes with Travel Insurance
I’m sure you’re aware that it’s a good idea to have travel insurance for traveling in Rhodes, Greece, or anywhere in the world!
Stephanie and I have both been paying customers of World Nomads for the last three years. We love the peace of mind it gives us in case of emergencies, accidents, illnesses, theft, or trip cancellation or disruption.
While Rhodes is very safe, there’s always a risk inherent in everyday travel like theft or injury, so it’s better to play it safe.
