Stayed here for my first 2 nights in Athens, Greece. Great location for the day time, can walk to the Acropolis as well as local restaurants and Acropolis museum which was cool. They assured us the streets were safe to walk during the night but ehhh looked a little sketchy to me, so we cabbed it to the center of... More

The Philippos is a small hotel located in the heart of the main tourist attractions in Athens. A short comfortable walk to the Acropolis and the museum as well as the temple of Zues and stadium. It's close proximity to the Plaka was an added bonus. The Plaka is a tourists delight with numerous shopping and restaurant possibilities. The hotel... More

Dear Emesjay, Thank you for naming Philippos Hotel the hotel one may be looking for! Truly enough we are in the heart of the main tourist attractions yet in an upscale residential area thus combining the best of two worlds!

My sister and I stayed for 4 nights in total at the Philippos. The location is great- just at the edge of the Plaka district and an easy walk to the major attractions of the Acropolis, Hadrians Arch, Zeus' s Temple and the fabulous new Acropolis Museum. The rooms and beds are comfortable, clean and well maintained. The staff are... More

We booked the top room at this hotel with a balcony and what a fabulous view we had. The staff were all excellent, our rooms were clean, the balcony had table and chairs and sun loungers.

I stayed at both Hotel Herodion and Philippos. Smaller than sister hotel Herodion but of course at a cheaper price. Location is as good - 5mins walk to museum and acropolis. Room was fairly small. Room had no tea/coffee, electric kettle and wardrobe or cloth hanger. Breakfast spread was simple and ok. Staff was very helpful to allow us to... More

Dear JohnStano Thank you for taking time to comment on your stay at Philippos, the sister property hotel of Herodion. The advantage of the former is that it benefits in terms of personnel quality and training, fresh in-house and home-made goods for breakfast, detailing and more from the latter. Many guests have commented that Philippos offers a 4* service in... More

Dear Khaled B Thank you for your extensive review regarding your stay at Philippos.

Even if, for our hotel, such an attitude is definitely the exception I wish to personal apologize for... More

This is the perfect hotel for visitors to Athens who want to visit historic sites. The location can't be beat: two blocks from the Acropolis and the new museum, plus just around the corner from great coffee places, cheap gyros, good tourist restaurants (if you're feeling like comfort), an ATM, and the Plaka. The people who run it are incredibly... More

Great location and nice people. They were very nice to find us a room at the very last minute on a busy weekend during tourist season, when we had had a problem in another hotel. Smallish rooms, but we felt very secure. Their sister hotel, the Herodian, has a rooftop restaurant where we had an excellent meal with a spectacular... More

We stayed four nights and were very happy there, especially to be so close to the new Acropolis museum, We were also pleased to have two dinners at the rooftop restaurant in the Herodion, with the Parthenon in view. The staff were all very courteous and helpful. Much appreciated and made our visit to Athens memorable.

Dear Ruth P Excellent review! Thank you very much for your lovely feedback. It is very interesting that you put forward the fact that the rooms are sunny; it is something we believe is rather important and are very proud of it!

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
