“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

This is a very small hotel. The owner, George, is very personable, insists on carrying bags up (compensating for no elevator). The location is spectacular, and in easy walking distance from the Ancient Delphi ruins.

Breakfast was special, different from typical hotel continental breakfasts, with hot fresh-baked bread typical of homes not establishments, wonderful local cherry preserves, etc. George's recommendations for dinner were wonderful: I had excellent wild boar.

The experience here, combined with the spectacular setting and the outstanding ruins, makes me want to come back here again.

We spent two nights in Delphi, staying in adjoining rooms at the Pitho Rooms. George and Vicky were very welcoming. Everything was great - from George's helpful hints, the spotlessly clean rooms, the lovely breakfast and the great location. George even helped us with a minor emergency - we had left our son's (expensive ) dental plate back at our hotel in Olympus. George phoned the hotel (Elena's Guesthouse) and we arranged to have the plate AND a pair shoes mailed to pension Stella in Santorini. There was great relief to find that the plate and shoes arrived safely in Santorini ( big thanks Elena!)

George and Vicky are extremely gracious hosts! The room was modern and clean with a great balcony overlooking the street. Breakfast included a wide variety of options and great conversation. They own a charming, little store on the first floor and while I was deciding which pottery to purchase, George regaled us with stories and history lessons about the different pieces. Everything is within walking distance including great restaurants with exceptional views!

We stayed at Pitho Rooms for two nights in early June. The owners, George and Vicky, were exceedingly friendly and welcoming. The hotel itself was clean, inviting, and conveniently located in the town of Dephi. There are excellent restaurants very close by, and the ruins and museums are a few minutes’ walk away. Our room was spacious and comfortable (a very small complaint: we found the beds to be a tad too hard, even by Greek hotel standards). Each morning George worked behind the breakfast bar to prepare coffee and other items as we started the day. During the breakfast times we had some interesting conversations with other guests (with whom we met up from time to time throughout the day as we visited the sites). George and Vicky readily offered friendly and valuable advice about travel routes and local attractions. For instance, we were very glad we followed George’s suggestion to drive to a beautiful beach area down the mountain for a relaxing afternoon swim.

In short, in our view you can’t go wrong staying at Pitho Rooms. George and Vicky were very committed to providing us with everything we needed for a rewarding visit to the Delphi area. We strongly recommend their hotel and would certainly stay there again

We first visited George and Vicky last summer while scouting a school trip that we wanted to chaperone, and have been back twice more since. After staying at Pitho Rooms, we had no doubt that it was the best possible choice not only for us, but for the 11 children we brought this summer. Our flight was delayed, and we did not arrive in Delphi until 3am. Nevertheless, George was outside waiting for us, ready to lift the luggage and help us to our rooms. He had breakfast ready for us early the next morning as well. His is one of the best breakfasts we found in all of Greece, and the kids all loved him for his kindness and generosity. Besides being inexpensive, clean, comfortable, and full of personal attention, the hotel is also within a mile of the famous sites of Delphi. Staying anywhere besides Pitho Rooms while visiting Delphi would be a regrettable mistake. We plan to bring every school group we take to Greece into the care of George and Vicky.

We booked 2 nights in the Pitho Rooms for our visit to Delphi. We were greeted by George, Vicky and family on our arrival and our stay with them was perfect. The accomodation is within walking distance of the ancient sites so if travelling by car you can just park up and leave it until you leave. The tavernas in the street made us very welcome , one bar had a large screen so we could watch the England game! Not our usual night time entertainment in Greece but sometimes you have to do it! Delphi was almost deserted at night with all the coaches heading back to Athens.
The Pitho rooms are clean, comfortable, excellent value and with the added bonus of interesting, knowledgable hosts. Thank you to George and Vicky, we would recommend their hospitality.

Clean and comfortable three star hotel with five star service. Exceptionally helpful owner who is knowledgeable about the current reduced site hours. A very good breakfast is served at this hotel. Ask for the rooms that overlook a lovely, small landscaped courtyard. From the hotel you can walk to the bus station, the museum and to the sites.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms overlook the courtyard
