This is one of the cheapest options in Athens. The hotel is very basic. Wifi usually works. It is easy enough to get around and get to the metro to see the sights. Just kind of a sketchy neighborhood at night.

Worst place I've ever stayed! Bathroom was dirty with stains in bath tub and toilet. Dried urine on toilet seat. The whole room smelled like stale cigarettes and was old and tired. Bad area with not much going for it. Wifi did not connect. Loud drunken teens staying in hostel. Only pros were how close it is to Larissa station... More

The worst hotel experience I've ever had! This hotel resembles a hostel and, by far one of the worst hostels I've seen! Location feels like the slums! Customer service was non-existent! Definitely false advertising with regards to their claim that their "Reception staff tirelessly provides excellent 24 hour attention". The bed springs were protruding and the hotel's response was bad... More

Stayed at the Filoxenia hotel recently over three nights. To be honest, the space itself is worth every cent if you are the budget traveller. The rooms are very spacious for two people! However, rooms are very basic and very tired (to be expected for under 20 euros a night). As mentioned in the title, the hotel is essentially one... More

Stayed in this hotel for two nights, the room was ok but too small because we asked for a room with four beds, and they gave us a room with two beds and they just put two extra beds in. So, there was too little space inside. Breakfast was ok. The location is perfect, 5min walking to Victoria metro station... More

20 euro for an ensuite single room with breakfast, internet and A/C on Athens central, looks a very good deal. They promised an A/C room, that worked, promised an wifi for free that works from the room and the common places. Instead of this it worked only in the ground floor, nowhere else. They promised a breakfast, that u get... More

We stayed at Hotel Filoxenia and it is very noisy during the night. There are students all year round. Partying almost every night. The hotel staff not intrested that you cannot sleep. They were banging the doors all night not careing about anyone else. Also the room and the bathroom was not cleaned properly. Not recommended.

I stayed in Filoxenia during Oct 2008. I stayed for 6 nights. It was a basic hotel, with roof top Breakfast provision. It costed EU35, or, INR 2300 per night that time. The only drawback I found, was the elevator. It was quite suffocating. The location was close from Viktoria Metro station. So, whether you want to go to Acropolis... More

We had booked this hotel for five people by booking online . When we reached this hotel at night we were told the hotel is full and can not accommodate people in-spite of confirmed booking and we were told to go to another hotel which was far away from this place. It is located in one or the shadiest place... More

Stayed at the Filoxenia Hotel for two nights. Patio door wouldn't lock. Lock broken. Girl on reception 'tried' but failed to persuade me to take the room anyway, but It wasn't her cases that could have been stolen. Pathetic! She said that the maintenance chap would fix the lock the following day. Surprise, surprise, he didn't turn up. Door handles... More
