My family and I had an amazing time at Philoxenia and would recommend a stay to anyone who wants to explore Kalymnos a beautiful island in its own right. Wonderful warm, friendly family run hotel. We have stayed three times and will be back again soon.

The staff was very friendly. The rooms were a nice size. Behind the hotel is some of the best climbing on Kalymnos Island. We really enjoyed the free breakfast in the morning -- it had a lot of variety and high quality. Cold liter bottles of water were available for a euro. The rooms air conditioners were turned off in... More

We stayed for a week in a room facing Telendos. We were extremely happy with the room. While small, it provided everything we needed and had a great patio/balcony with a view of Telendos. LOCATION: One of the most easily accessible crags is directly behind the hotel, and three others within a short hike, which made it ideal as we... More

Had a great two weeks at easter, even though the weather was not great. Owners very helpful making our stay great, we will be back. Good value for money unfortunately the pool was empty but there is a beach 150 meters away and even though the sea was cold we could still swim.

We have been going to the Philoxenia for the last 10 years, I was reluctant to review as this is a GREAT hotel in a super location made all the better by the Pappanikolas Family who own and run it. I wanted to keep it secret but now is the time to reveal and let more people experience it. My... More

I didn't think it could get better but I loved Kalymnos and Hotel Philoxenia even in November. We had mixed weather but still managed to sit outside every day. Lovely hotel run by a lovely family who go that extra mile to make sure that your holiday is special. It was like staying family, every day Maria made little treats... More

Great place in Kalymnos (Armeos) with a splendid view on Telendos, the sea and the mountains. Nice and quite place closed to the town of Massouri with no noise. There is a bus stop just in front of the hotel. Very comfortable room, well equiped and very clean with a marvellous view on Telendos. Free wifi. Excellent staff who does... More

The hotel is a great family run facility, and we wouldn't hesitate to go back and visit Nikolas and family again. It's a short walk from the main town, so feels quiet and relaxed - yet very accessible for shops, the beach and bars/restaurants when needed. The views are simply stunning, and there are some awesome climbing spots within close... More

This was our first time at this lovely hotel, and from the very first day we were made to feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble, a family run hotel with a lovely warmth about it, we had a wonderful 2 week stay here, we relaxed and spent time chatting with the family who were more than happy to...
