3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The location of the hotel is great. About ten minute walk to the Acropolis. The Acropolis Museum is even closer. (The museum is great. I'm glad I visited the museum after I had seen the site. The museum helps picture what had been at the site before). The hotel is also very close to the tourist shops and restaurants, which... More

I stayed in Philippos Hotel for 4 nights. Perfect base if you want to visit Acropolis, which you can easily find with 5-10 minutes walk. Very friendly staff, tasty breakfast. Coffee and tea available for free for all guests ( free of charge). Rooms small, but comfortable and clean. Free Wi fi.

The hotel is ideally located to visit the Acropolis and the museum which are almost around the corner. Also Plaka is not far away. But the best was the staff (and in particular Elias) who were very friendly and helpful. We booked the rooms through an online site, but they had not paid for our room upon our arrival (though...

Perfect for visiting Acropolis (hiking shoes, a hat & sunscreen are musts!) for 12€, unless, like me, you are an over-65 EU citizen, in which case, flash your passport at the ticket seller, and you'll pay only half. Half-price also at the New Acropolis Museum. In case your knees are not up for the Acropolis challenge, or if it's already... More

We arrived early in the morning before usual check in. We needed some sleep before a long tour scheduled for the early afternoon. The hotel was able to give us another room to rest up and even some extra time at check out. Location is great and the hotel is very clean.

As mentioned by many reviewers, this hotel is in an excellent location, right next to the Museum, and the Acropolis. The Plaka area is a short walk, and it's a very pleasant area. The hotel was clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. We had a double and a triple room for our family of 5 and I will... More

Dear eap111 Thank you for your promise of returning. Your comments make us very proud of our elegant small, good-valued hotel! I noted your feed back regarding the size of the rooms, yet I have to underline the fact that space is a very “rare and valuable” merit when situated so close to the Acropolis! More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. A block from the new Acropolis Museum and a short walk to the hill, Plaka, Metro, etc. At the same time, it is in a quieter residential area away from noisy bars and traffic. I found the staff to be quite pleasant. The best rooms are on 5th and 6th floors... More
