This hotel is close to everything, the Plaka and the Acropolis. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was the best we had on our whole two weeks traveling. Our room was small but clean. Everything in the bathroom was working OK.
But no wash cloths were supplied. You need one bring one with you. Also bring a electrical socket convertor for your curling iron or small applicance you bring with you.
This hotel was advertised on the internet that said they have air conditioning. Air is not one until the end of June. It is regulated by the city for three star hotels. Athens was having a hot spell and our room was very hot. But it had a nice balcony. This hotel has a sister hotel around the block The Herodion. It is a 4 star hotel with a restrauant. The food is good and you get a 10% discount. This hotel had wash cloths in their public restrooms.

Stayed here for 3 days at beginning of our holiday and for one day at the end.
Hotel is conveniently based to Metro,Acropolis,new museum(not opening until June),old areas of Athens,restaurants etc.
Modern clean efficient Hotel run by pleasant staff.
Room allocated for the 3 days whilst small was clean and well equipped,however for our one night stay we were allocated an even smaller room, the bathroom was the smallest I have ever entered,anyone over 5.9 feet and 14 stone is in trouble.
Breakfast was buffet style limited choice but sufficient.

We stayed at the Hotel Philippos based and reviews and also our budget! (Euro's are twice as much to the Australian dollar). We paid EUR 110 per night. incl. breakfast for 2.

First room we were allocated was really small - like a shoe box and the bathroom had one of those really annoying curtins which went across the shower and toilet! The room did have a nice large balcony however.

So the next day we asked to be room moved for our last night - mainly beacuse of the bathroom and we were given a room on the 4th floor which was more spacious and had a decent bathroom. Ahhhhh.. much better!

Both rooms had a tiny view of the acropolis as they both faced onto the main street of the hotel.

However the hotel has obviously had a refurb and was very moden and clean. Breakfast was also very good and quite adequate.

The best thing about the hotel was the location! 1 min. walk to the new museaum (when it opens) and about 300m to the Acropolis. Took us about 10 min to walk to the Plaka area and abour 15 mins to get to Syntegma Square (not sure if I am spelling that correctly).

Really safe location - my partner actually went for a run each morning and loved it.

Would have no problem in staying here again... but next time if I wasnt happy with the first room they gave me I would immediately complain.

Tip - they have floor plans of the floor you are on at the back of the bedroom door so you can see the size of each room. ... some looked quite large - perhaps more expensive? Helps when you are wanting to change rooms.


Overall conclusion - very nice budget hotel to stay in Athens.

Request Room 701 - the only room on the 7th floor with private roof terrace overlooking the Acropolis ... slightly smaller room than others but the very best, if able to reserve it, its well worth it and only 60 Euros! A very nice touch to a holiday. Stunning full view of Acropolis day and night - unforgettable.

Best location. Located in the best area of Athens away from the ghettos! Only 300 metres away from the Acropolis rock site. 2 minute walk from the new Acropolis museum, 3 minute walk from Roman theatre, 5- 10 minute nice walk to the Acropolis itself.

Has a 5 star sister hotel only 50 meters around the corner, 1 minute walk open free for Phillipos guests. The Herodian hotels facilities are perfect to use... Great resturant, fresh food - top xmas dinner (dish of the day) only 7.50 Euros each. Top bottle of red, 8 Euros + 10% discount! Great roof garden terrace overlooking the Acropolis and Jaccuzzi.

Staff at both hotels are very good, a few good and friendly characters.

The Breakfast is ok, standard fresh bread, crossaints, ham cheese and cake, fresh strong coffee.

Only thing I would improve... Get a chef in who does not overcook the eggs and serves real fruit juice and not that cheap cordial stuff.
