I stayed at the Filoxenia Aug 8-11, then on Aug25-26, having booked it based on two criteria: location and price. I paid 42 euro per night for the first stay, and 40 euro for the second stay.
I had rm 104 which gives onto the street so I changed the next day to 108 which was better. I had rm 107 on the last stay overnight, bed was lumpy and bathtub enamel was worn away. Kind of icky!
The location was good because it was close to Larissis and Victoria stations. Buffet breakfast was sufficient for me: coffee/tea, butter, jam , bread, Melba toast, hardboiled eggs, orange juice, ham and cheese slices, and milk and cereal.
The receptionists were all friendly and helpful especially Christos.
Free internet on the sole computer in the lobby. TV in lobby lounge. Bar Pavlina never seemed to be open but I didn't need it.
Never visited the roof-top terrace.
The rooms have carpeting which should be removed. The water pressure was fine in the bathroom and there was sufficient hot water.
There is a book exchange section in the lobby by the TV and a chess game.
There is no hairdryer in the washroom.
TVs are mounted high up so watching from bed requires 2-3 pillows. Small screens.
Rm 108 was the best of all three. It was quiet and the bed was a double.
Receptionists can arrange tours for you.
Hotel needs renovation!!!
The neighbourhood did not bother me: did not see any prostitutes. There were Poles , Bangladeshi and other immigrants in the neighbourhood so I felt at home. Never unsafe. Some supermarkets and convenience stores and kiosks in the neighbourhood for pastries, beer, fruit, etc.
I walked from Filoxenia to Monastiraki one day, very doable, and took the subway at other times.
Truly a budget hotel but all I needed was a bed, a shower, a place to store my luggage and breakfast.
