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...

We have been to the philoxenia twice now and heading for our third stay. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The hotel is friendly and family run. They will go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one no wonder they have just had their 25th anniversary. A well deserved one at... More

Stayed for a week with three of my friends. Even if restaurants and café is just a 15 min walk away we often felt like we did not have to leave for to get a great meal. Good food, great drinks and even better service. Mattias

The hotel is located in a stunning spot, with views of the rock faces behind and Telendos to the front. There is moped parking, a post box and bus stop just outside. The local town is a short walk away, with shops, restaurants, commercial beach and everything you would expect less than 15 mins away, at an exhausted 5-year-old's pace.... More
