My friend and I decided to make the trade-off between staying at a hotel with a pool just outside of town vs. staying at the Hotel Philippi right in town, and it was well worth it. I loved this place!! I would definitely stay there again on a return visit to Mykonos and would recommend it to anyone who wants a nice, clean hotel in a great location at a very reasonable price. I liked this hotel so much that I was practically recommending it to strangers for their next stay in Mykonos.
Hotel Philippi is perfectly located right in the center of town - near the shops, waterfront, restaurants, bars, cafes (great place next door for reasonably priced coffee/breakfast). We were able to walk there from where the ferry dropped us off (~15 min walk w/ bags), and it felt very safe when we (as two 20something girls) were walking home late at night from the bars.
The rooms are small but comfortable, extremely clean, and get good light and air circulation (several windows + door to shared balcony). There is a pretty garden in back that or room overlooked, and there's a patio with a few tables and chairs there where you can relax with a book, snack or some wine when you want to take a break from walking around. The rooms are also surprisingly quiet for being right in town; you'll hear some noise from the clubs nearby, but nothing that earplugs can't block out, and it was pretty quiet when we closed the windows and used the AC instead. The owner was very nice and let us leave our bags in the office after we checked out our last day while waiting for our afternoon ferry to Santorini.
