We spent a weekend in Delphi and chose to stay at Parnassos hotel, which is slightly more expensive than other hotels on the same road as we were looking for a more special stay and we're taken by the pictures of the hotel as well as the excellent reviews on trip advisor.
Whilst booking we asked if we could have a room with the wooden ceiling and metallic beds ( assuming its on the top floor) but appreciating it is a busy weekend we expected that this could not be guaranteed.
We arrived at the hotel to be greeted by a very matter of fact receptionist, not really polite but not rude either. The man on reception in the morning was very polite. The room was one of the smaller rooms, very average but comfortable. The bathroom is rather dated, stand up shower with a plastic curtain but clean and functional. Breakfast has a very wide selection of pastries, cereal many of which the quality was rather dubious but ok.
The hotel is generally really clean and well located. The beds were comfortable and we slept well.
However as this hotel is marked above the towns average that does not necessarily reflect all its rooms so do not get your hopes up as I gather most of the rooms fall into the basic decor -small size category and therefore you may just as we'll go to one if the cheaper hotels.
Door slamming can be an issue too!
For the management it be worthwhile considering a tiered pricing to reflect room types and match expectations.
If this was the case, we would go back and recommend it
