Stayed here in June 2014 with the family.
We visited Delphi to explore the fabulous ruins. The choices seemed limited so we decided on the Amalia, since it seemed like a good option towards the higher end.
The hotel is located at one end of town, as many people reviewed, however the town itself is just a 10 min walk from end to end, so this is not an issue. We easily walked down for lunch and dinner while staying at the Amalia, along with our 4 year old.
The upside of staying "outside" town is that the property is spacious with a great pool and a nice large garden. The views are to kill for, as the hotel is on a higher elevation from the rest of the town...and pretty much every room has a great view. Looking behind you, you can see Mt Parnassus (is it?) towering over the hotel and the town...truly awesome. The common spaces inside are also great, with lots of space and minimal clutter.
Our room had a balcony, which I think all do as well, and this was a great spot to sit out and watch the sun go down. The decor of the room may seem dated to some but its quite cool, in that straight lines, minimalist sort of way. The bathroom was spacious but someone with a bad color sense chose those tiles...wowza.
We only had breakfast at the hotel and that was about par for the course. There were a lot of package tours using the lodgings, given that it is one of the few large hotels in town, but we didnt mind much.
We also used the pool and our kid had a blast swimming till 8pm in the summer sun.
There's not much to not like...but no big wow factor either. But I guess the showstopper here are the ruins, which are just a short walk down the hill.
I would actually come back to Delphi just to sit around and do nothing. Its quiet and its lovely. Arachova looks like another cool town and its just a 15 min down the windy road...maybe we will visit again!!
