“A hotel of Historic Heritage and amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Delphi Palace is a historic hotel and part of the Greek architectural heritage, since it was designed by one of Greece's seminal architects Mr. Demetrios Pikionis; Delphi Palace being one of his most important works is under the aegis of the Hellinic Preservation Trust. This information was passed on to me by the owner, whom I had the pleasure to meet during my stay there. Apparently this hotel was recently renovated with some certain extensions, such as the swimming pool & spa area, inasmuch as it went though a sustainable regeneration process in order to attain some modern facilities and services without sacrificing its character and identity. Due to my profession I found all this quite fascinating and I strongly believe that whomever has an interest in seeing more than the archaeological site, should definitely pay a visit to this hotel.

If you don't care much about the above, your stay will still be just as good. The staff is very polite and helpful, most of them fluent in more languages than just English. What I loved more about this hotel were the spaces which are found on different levels, emphasizing more the fact that this building lies on a cliff. There are nice little gardens connecting all the exterior spaces making the walks from one place to another all very pleasant. The restaurant has a massive terrace that overlooks the Corinthian Gulf, just like most of the rooms' balconies; the views are amazing giving you the best of the renowned Delphic landscape. Location-wise, being on the west outskirts of the town it is very quiet, yet only a 5 minute walk away from the town centre.
Overall a very enjoyable and memorable stay, I would definitely go back any time.

Pictures on the Web nice, actual hotel today not like in pictures, maybe when it was built. It is dirty, pool the same, blue towels for pool side full of stains.One insect walking in our room when we walked in the room. Dolphin Hellas needs to review the hotels from time to time. Definitely this hotel is not what we hoped.

Room Tip: Do not believe in the pictures they were taken in 1950. 62 years later it is totally different

Like most hotels in Delphi the view is spectacular in particular rooms. If you are looking for the best view make sure to request rooms on higher levels on the side closest to the Delphi. Rooms on on the other side and lower have a partial view blocked by the swimming pool cover.

The hotel is located on the "outskirts" of Delphi, but only a 7 minute walk from the center of main street. Besides, in the evening you get to walk by the locals sitting on their decks.

The grounds are a bit unkept, plants grow unhindered. There is a path below the pool that would lead to a nice cafe, but the hotel does not seem to keep it up. The fate on the left side is locked, but I believe the gate on the right was open.

If you are on a tour group the dinner and breakfast are OK, but I highly recommend going in town and finding a place to eat. The staff tries hard, but the fair is not something you will write home about. The bar and the "business center" are also non-existent.

In terms of the room they are a decent size. They have flat screen TVs. The sheets were very clean and so were the towels. Didn't find hair on the linens. The bathrooms are smaller and the showers do not have the traditional shower head. Like most Greek hotels they are bathtubs with handheld heads. Air condition is slow in some rooms, but if you harp enough on it the staff will give you a "smaller room" which will pump AC controlled by the desk. (They'll turn it off in the morning so be careful.) But, you shouldn't care about the room, because you should only be in it to sleep!

The staff is very attentive and concerned about your stay. Delphi has been hit hard by the supposed problems with Greece, so the staff really wants you to enjoy yourself. We had a problem with a clean bathroom which was immediately taken care of. The staff was very apologetic and provided a complementary bottle of wine. That is probably the best gesture we have ever gotten from a hotel.

In all a nice option for Delphi.

Room Tip: Request room of upper levels for good views.

This was our third hotel on our travels through Europe. We were most impressed by the views that were offered. You are perched high up on the mountain and get a fantastic blend of mountains, oceans, etc from any room you end up in. Each room has it's own little balcony which added to the experience. The rooms were large as well as the bathrooms, although our group had a broken shower head and broke their key in the lock. It didn't seem to be a problem for the staff though, they spoke excellent English and had a repairman down right away to fix both problems without issue. The meals were excellent, and the swimming pool was a nice treat after dinner. Very peaceful and relaxing.

When I went to Greece I first went to Athens, a very beautiful city. Then, me and some friends headed towards Delphi to see the Temple of Apollo. We stayed here in the Delphi Palace which I think has the best view of Delphi and its plains. The food we ate that day was spectacular, it looked kind of weird but the taste changed my thinking. I really recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony.

I stayed at the Delphi Palace as part of a tour. The hotel is a herritage building, so not much improvement work can be done to it. But, it is a very comfortable, quaint & small, with no elevators. The view from my room was amazing, as the hotel is perched high on the mountain. As one reviewer mentioned earlier, be careful when opening the door onto the balcony, as you can think you have broken the door, which I did! The hotel is a short walk into the town and it has free WIFI. The food for breakfast and dinner was OK, I found their vegetarian options very average. Service staff were just ok too. The hotel has free WIFI in the hotel lobby.

We stayed here as part of a tour. The hotel is old but quaint. Our room was fine with a lovely view to the sea. Not a moden hotel- rather like staying in a very old villa but was clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the stay and the atmosphere of the hotel.
If you like a modern hotel this one is not for you but we liked it.
Very short walk into town and lots of neat shops to poke around in and interesting restaurants.
Would not be suitable for anyone in a wheelchair or who has difficulty with stairs.
Service was a bit average as well in the bar- you would have thought it was a major put out to get a drink but we have struck that elsewhere In bigger hotels.
Would consider staying there again.
