“Nice hotel but don’t expect anything special”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Delphi is a tiny town and the hotel is located on one of its “main streets”, right to many other hotels and restaurants. Our room faced the street but we didn’t have any noise problems. The walk from the hotel to the temple of Apolllo will take you about 20 minutes. The hotel doesn’t have its own parking but you can park for free right outside on the street. The room itself was ok and pretty clean. We found the bed EXTREMLY hard and narrow; also the bathroom is in a serious need for an upgrade. We did enjoy the nice view of the mountains from the hotels roof and the free wi-fi. The breakfast was just ok and we had better during our stay in Greece.

Rooms in this hotel are rustic but equipment is a bit too old, especially the bathroom, where shower needs an urgent renewal. Location is in the hearth of the small town, and restaurants are just outside the door. This also causes rooms to be very noisy at night. Breakfast is served in the hall but it consists of few choice and just sweets. Drinks are upon request, there's no self-service for them. Wi-fi connection is available but it's very fair.

Pretty much all the hotels in Delphi are non descript. Lots of marble floors etc. This hotel had entrances on both sides of the street, upper (3 floors up) and lower. Close to lots of restaurants. Quiet, clean. What makes this one excel is the amazing breakfast. Most hotels in Greece, for the added 5E breakfast, it's Nescafe instant coffee and bread, maybe OJ. Not this hotel. I think his capuccino maker alone was $1500. Bread, eggs, fruit, yogurt, honey etc. Fantastic. All in a very nice atmosphere.

We stayed at hotel Kouros for one night in late March, and we liked the hotel very much. It's a small budget hotel but it is clean, and with friendly service - really all we needed for a one-night stay on a long road trip. We had a room with a small balcony, like I think all other rooms, overlooking the street, with a beautiful mountain view. Dimitris, the owner, was nice enough to allow us to make changes (of the arrival date) to our otherwise non-changeable reservation made through Booking.com. The archaeological site is a short drive away and could be a good walk if weather is good. The hotel doesn't offer diner and we found the restaurants in Delphi to be too touristy so we drove to Arachova which is only 20 minutes away to the east and we were so glad that we did - what a lovely little town where you can have some nice local food and spend a couple of hours walking around!

Given the price we paid (50 Euro), there was really nothing to complain about. The only caution you may need to have is that there is no shampoo provided so you will need to bring your own.

Room Tip: ask for a top floor room for better view

After a couple months of travelling and "breakfast included" meaning anything from cold cereal to just coffee, we came to Kouros. First of all Delphi is an absolutely beautiful, interesting and relaxing place to visit.

Hotel Kouros is perfectly situated right near the bus station (stop really), bars, restaurants, shops, archaeological sites and museums. Everything's in walking distance. Delphi's a small place, so that would be true no matter where you stayed, but what makes Kouros special is the breakfast.

They serve you (amazing in itself) plenty of bread, pastry, a hard boiled egg, orange juice, tea coffee. Then there's ALSO a buffet with the most delicious yogurt and incredible cherry preserves, fresh fruit and home-made cookies!!!! Need I say more. Friendly, family service, too. Oh yeah, and the rooms have balconies. We payed only 40€!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for one on the upper floors.
