This was a nice break from the common deals in Europe. Instead of the small overpriced room you would likely find in Paris or Germany, this place was affordable, spacious, right near the beach and even came with a nice breakfast spread. The hotel staff was also VERY friendly and were quick to carry our heavy bag to our room.... More

The location of the hotel is really good, everything in the walking distance: beach, shops, bars and clubs. Despite that the main street is very close, there was pretty quiet at the nights. The hotel has a parking and a... More

Hotel personal delivers really friendly and high quality service. We were enjoying every day staying there and every night speeded on a bar. Thanks a lot to Nasos and Mr. Jorge! It's a best place to stop at Malia for sure!

We stayed at the Philoxenia hotel for the 2nd year running. Perfect family hotel. So relaxing and the staff are wonderful and so friendly and helpful. Anyone going away on a family holiday to Malia should stay at this hotel. Will be going back next year.

We stayed in Philoxenia in Seprember 7-14, 2014. We love everything! The atmosphere was great. Welcoming staff, very tasty breakfasts and especially dinners (good variaty of dishes), rather comfortable rooms. The only minus was that rooms differ from the pictures on booking.com and other sites (but any way they are good). The hotel is situated in 4 minutes near the... More
