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...

We stayed in the Phidias hotel for two nights. We had a nice, clean room at the backside of the hotel. The breakfast was simple but good. Our sons had a room at the front side of the hotel and that was really nice. The Apostolou Pavlou is a nice street with lots of artisans selling their art, lot of... More

The good: as the subject says, the location could not be more perfect. It's a short walk from the nearest metro station and within walking distance of most areas worth visiting. The front door opens to a magnificent view of the Temple of Hephaestus. The staff was rather friendly and helpful and the price per night was extremely good. There... More

We booked a twin room for two nights but when we arrived were told they only had a double bed, which was a problem for us. They gave us a campbed. A solution, but not an ideal one. The room was scruffy and far from clean. The balcony had room for only one (plastic) chair and overlooked gardens/backyards - not... More
