It was my second visit at Philippos and I was even more delighted to see it was not a "coincidence" the first good impression. It is a small and nice place to stay, close to Acropolis (just few steps, truly). The breakfast is not the most luxury one but the food is fresh and good (and loukoumades ... yaaamy). The... More

Spent multiple nights there over a two week vacation (used as the base for the trip). Some rooms have great views of Acropolis and the hotel itself is in a central location, a block away from the Plaka (the 'old historical neighborhood of Athens', filled with shops and restaurants). Excellent support from the staff, overall a great stay.

Great hotel, really reasonable in the best possible location. Literally the best breakfast we had on our trip, including upscale restaurants. Their yogurt was unbelievable. Staff was really helpful as well. Room was on the smaller side, but clean and quiet.

We stayed in room 401, perfect for four people, 2 adults and 2 teenage boys. Rooms are on the small side, but you're not in Athens to spend time in your room. Rooms clean, good shower pressure and comfortable beds. Bathroom is small but functional. Staff very pleasant, and helpful. Breakfast spread was very good also. Location perfect! Near acropolis...

This hotel is in an amazing location where we could walk with our children to see all the sights! Our room was small but it was clean and fine for sleeping in. We didn't come to Athens to spend time in a hotel room anyways. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast too (delicious greek... More

The Philippos is a very good place to stay when visiting Athens. Our room had a balcony with a view of the Parthenon which was stunning. The sites and metro are all easily accessible. The neighborhood is very quiet considering how close you are to sites and restaurants. The hotel staff were nice and helpful. The room and bathroom are... More

This may not be the most dazzling hotel but the location is superb for all the cultural attractions. Everything is within walking distance or a very short and very cheap taxi ride away. The staff are always on hand to book taxi's and help with directions. The rooms are clean but very small. The bathroom is tiny but if you... More

Triple share room with a balcony view of the parthenon. Room was ok, basic quality but can't complain. The free breakfast was okay too. Location near the Plakka district was nice, the loveliest part of Athens that I saw.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
