Stayed her on a climbing trip. The owner kept it open for our group as we were just out of season. Friendly staff. Best rooms on the top floor with a little kitchen. Good cocktail making skills at the bar and relaxed atmosphere.

I stayed here with my wife for a climbing holiday on Kalymnos. It was the first time that my wife came with me so I really wanted things to go well. Here I couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The romantic view from our balcony of the sun setting behind Telendos island was super romantic. The location is perfect for... More

First time on Kalymnos and couldn't have found a more friendly place to stay. Nikolas was a fantastic host. The apartment was ideal and the views from balcony are breathtaking. Already planning a return journey. Thanks Nikolas

They are lovely friendly, genuine people who care about their guests and go that extra mile for them. Sadly we came off our... More

If you like the Greek islands and want to visit a quiet location then Kalymnos is perfect and where better to stay than the Philoxenia Hotel which is a fairly small, family run hotel located away from the hustle and bustle of the tavernas and shops but still within easy walking distance. It has fantastic views looking across the water... More

We have visited the Island many times over the past 18 years but have never experienced a more relaxing and friendly Hotel. It is very efficiently run by Nicholas and his family, nothing is too much trouble, it is very clean and very well maintained. The breakfast and food from Menu are all very good thanks to Maria and Irene... More
