Backpack Stories - Hotel recommendations

Dear friends!

Over the years we’ve stayed in quite some hotels in different countries. Although we sometimes try to book with hotels directly, we primarily use for our travels.

Here we want to share with you our hotel experiences. The ratings are our subjective view from the time when we stayed there. If you made a different experience or anything changed since we experienced the hotels, please let us now!

If you want to support Backpack Stories, please use our Affiliate Link ( to book your stays or use the hotel links in the list below.

Thank you and happy travelling!

Atma Beach Rooms & Suites (Falikari, Rhodes) – Rating 5/5
Small independent hotel with amazing breakfast next to the beach. Amazingly friendly staff and comfortable beds. The room had a pool!

All-Inclusive hotel in a nice location in new Rhodes town; price/value very good, but interior of the room seems old; amazing variety of food
