We stayed in mid August for two nights and I have to say this small hotel is perfect. It is located directly at the Ancient Agora and the pedestrian area. You just step out of the hotel and are in the middle of everything. Akropolis is 500m, the Agora 200m, Plakka 600m. Like I said: perfect. Service in the hotel... More

This hotel has a great location! It's probably a 10-15 minute walk to the Acropolis, maybe 5 minutes to the Ancient Agora, and probably 2 minutes to the subway station! Not only that, the hotel is located on this beautiful night time strip (looks & feels very different during the day though!) with restaurants & cafes. But, since it's conveniently... More

I came to the hotel very soon after being robbed by pickpockets. The nice people by the reception helped me to get a room and ticket to the airport, the day after. The names of the nice people are Konstadima and Miltos. Thank you ever so much, both of you. Beside this great and positive attitude I also want to... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Phidias earlier this summer. I LOVE the location -- I'm from NYC and walking from the Metro stop reminds me of the vibe in the East Village/Alpha City. The area isn't very touristy -- there are lots of Greeks out at all hours in the cafes along the pedestrian street the hotel is... More

Stayed here with a large group of 25 which basically filled the entire hotel (we were forced into triples). Considering, we were accommodated very well. As expected, rooms are small but roomy enough for two people... Not for three. Bathrooms are old and our shower flooded the entire bathroom every time we showered which got annoying by our fifth night.... More

Loved this hotel. A friend and I stayed overnight before a ferry departure and had rave reviews. The rooms are simple but clean and include everything you need. We received complementary wine upon arrival and the hosts had great input for restaurants and questions. And best of all there is a free shuttle to pick you up from the airport... More

We stayed for 2 night. The Hotel location is very good. The street is full of buzz & activities. There are many cafes & restaurants. Breakfast is not a wide spread but comfortable & good. This place may not be suitable for people having problem in climb walking.

Cheaper place, great location. Really friendly and helpful staff. The room was a decent size had a fridge and ac. However, the bathroom needs a lot of work - there was mold everywhere, holes in the wall, the shower head wouldn't stay up on it's own, very very dirty, I was unsure that if it had even been cleaned prior...
