"Close to Acropolis, clean and friendly staff !!"
It was close to the city centre..acropolis,partheonan, asyntagma square, and restaurants and bars. nice place to stay for couple days only !! good breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location in Plaka. Near Metro."
This was our second stay at the Phillipos Hotel. The staff is helpful and very courteous. The location in the Plaka area of Athens is ideal for walking to shopping and site seeing. They are just two blocks from the wonderful athens Metro so you can fly in and be at the hotel for just the 6 euro fare in under an hour. My only reservation is the excess […] charge for internet access. The room rates through hotels.com were very affordable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel and great location at the right price"
Make sure your room is on the 2nd floor or higher and you'll be satisfied (1st floor was rudimentary, noisy and generally uncomfortable, particularly the shower). Bring your own washcloth... Towels, soap, etc are all provided but strangely no washcloths. Nice breakfast was included, wifi was comparatively cheap and the staff were very friendly and helpful. […] Next time, however, I'll stay at their sister hotel 1 half-block away with the in-hotel restaurant and *outstanding* rooftop garden, the Herodian. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Our Greek sailing trip"
The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean and fit our needs perfectly with lockboxes in the closet for personal items. Our hotel is located just below the Acropolis and within a couple of blocks of great tavernas and shopping. The breakfast in the lobby was a great way to begin the day. They stored our luggage until […] we were picked up by our driver a couple of hours after checking out. Definitely would recommend the hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was in a great location. No one to help with luggage or ramp to roll luggage. They didn't seem willing to offer much information until I presented my U.S. passport. I think every paying customer should be treated as a valued customer regardless of nationality. I would say for a small hotel it lacked genuiness and the service I received was pe […] rfunctory.

"Pleasant stay, great location"
We enjoyed this hotel very much. The room was on the small side, with tiny bathroom, but the bed was very comfortable, air conditioning worked great, staff was friendly and helpful and we loved the location which was very convenient to the Acropolis and Plaka, yet in a quiet, residential area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing Hotel ,Very good price, Nice Staff!!"
We arrived at Athens, 2 weekes a go. As soon we arrived to the hotel the staff was very hepful, we asked for some water, and the "sweden lady" (I "dont remember her name )was so helpful, she served us three glasses of water on a tray. Originally we booked in Hotels.com for 2 days, but we decided stay for 1 more. Constantine,the manager respected the […] price that Hotels.com gave to us ,even the price at our arrival was more.The room was very espacious compared with other hotels in Europe, we traveled with our 12 year old son, and they give us a double bed for us ,and a sofa bed for him , with a door to make 2 different rooms , that gave us privacy.The room also had a balcony, bathroom very clean, towels, and sheets ultra white and clean. Breakfast very good for the price. My husband thought the the buffet would be complete with "scrambled eggs", but for the price it was a very good deal, ham, hard egg , toast , coffe juice , fruit , yogurt , milk...., even the lady who served the breakfast is nice with a smile every morning.Definitely we recomend "Philippos Hotel" for a family trip in Athens , Greece , I hope you enjoy the "Parthenon" ,"Ancient Agora".... they were very close to the hotel :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location is Great"
The location is outstanding you are within walking distance of all the major sights and the plaka which has many great restaurants and stores for shopping. This hotel is about the location. It is not a 4 or 5 star hotel for quality rather a 5 star for location. From what I could see your 4 and 5 star hotels will not have the location of this hotel. […] That being said the hotel is good for a good night sleep, the bed was comfortable, it was quiet, they provide a good breakfast included in the cost of the room. The rooms are small, the TV is the old type but who comes to Greece to watch TV. The bathroom is small and the towels could be a better quality. The staff was very friendly and helpful overall I have no real complaints. I would and probably will stay at this hotel on my next visit to Greece. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Philippos Hotel, Athens Greece"
This hotel was a great surprise! It was clean, modern and a real find in downtown Athens. It was only a 10 minute walk to all the great sights including the Acropolis (which I could see from my balcony) and the Plaka area. Everyone was nice the room was small but clean and modern. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I would absolutly stay there […] again. Did I mention free breakfast too! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Staff was great, nice breakfast included in price. Internet available for a reasonable price. Wonderful location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very happy with the Philippos Hotel. We had a wonderful breakfast each morning with very polite staff there. The room was small but adequate and clean. The beds were firm and great for my back (not too soft like most american hotels). The location was so close to everything we walked to and we could see the Acropolis from our balcony on the […] front side of the hotel. Wish they had free internet - had to pay to use.

"Fantastic Acropolis Hotel"
We absolutely loved this hotel. We had rolled into Athens off a 7 day cruise. This hotel was really great to us. The boat arrived at 8AM and our room would not be ready until 2PM. They let us leave our luggage in the lobby area near the desk so we could enjoy the day in Athens. You can see the Acropolis right from the hotel. The neighboorhood is amazing, […] clean, safe and wonderful. The are a large variety of shops and restaurants within 6 blocks or so. There is a tobacco shop to buy stamps,etc 1 block up the street. If you begin walking to the Acropolis it is a 5 minute walk. Right there you will find the Metro stop Acropoli. The area was perfect. We were coming and going at all hours and I never once was uncomfortable. Once we checked in our room was enormous and very clean and comfortable. Note: You must put the key in the light switch in order to get any power. There are several locations in Europe like this but it was first for me and took about 15 minutes for me to figure it out. We had a huge outdoor terrace looking out right at the Acropolis. We loved it at night! We went to the breakfast in the morning...What a spread! Eggs, cereals, pastries, fruits a large and filling assortment. The Acropolis Mueseum is at the top of the street. It also happens to be the same stop for the hop on hop off tour bus. The hotel staff was great to us. The prices are great. I will certainly stay here again the next time I am in Athens. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Philippos, Athens - great location, good service"
I enjoyed my stay at the Philippos Hotel in Athens, Greece very much. The location right below the Acropolis and literally around the corner from the New Acropolis Museum couldn't be better for a visitor on a pleasure trip to the city. The hotel staff was knowledgeable and attentive. A very decent continental breakfast is included in the price of the […] room. As a guest at the Philippos, you also get advantages with its more upscale partner hotel around the corner, the Herodion, namely a discount on the very reasonably priced meals in its pleasant atrium garden restaurant and access to the Herodion's rooftop garden for a fabulous view of the Acropolis and the city of Athens. While I was in Athens, work stoppages due to measures being taken in Greece's debt crisis made travel around Athens difficult and forced me to cancel a trip to one of the islands, resulting in me having to stay two more nights at the Philippos than I had planned. The staff was very accommodating and helpful with providing me a room for those nights and with my questions arising from the lack of public transportation, closure of museums, monuments, etc. during the strike. In fact, I can say that it was thanks to the staff at the Philippos Hotel that I was able to enjoy my visit to Athens in spite of the circumstances in Greece at the time of my visit. I would highly recommend the Philippos Hotel given its wonderful location, helpful staff and competitive price considering the location and amenities offered. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is very conveniently located about two blocks from the Acropolis and four blocks from the Plakka. The hotel was clean and the room (standard double) was very small, which is typical for a european hotel. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We would stay there again, but get the upgraded room.Genuine Expedia guest review
My wife and I stayed there for 6 nights. The location was pretty good. The hotel was very clean. The breakfast was pretty good. The only two things that would have made it better were if the internet were free and we could have had a double bed instead of twin beds. If youare looking for a good room at a good price, this is a good choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Philippos Hotel was comfortable and clean, provided a nice breakfast buffet, and had internet available (extra fee). By US standards the room was small but that's true everywhere we stayed in Italy & Greece. Its best feature is probably its great location, just a couple blocks from the Acropolis and the new Acropolis Museum. Definitely recommend […] it for any tourist visiting Athens.

"great location; not great service"
The location is great, as it is just a short walk to the Parthenon and VERY close to the new Acropolis museum. Although the front desk staff was polite and courteous, we found the service to be lacking. We came in late afternoon, and we had to wait 15-20 minutes for our room to be ready. In addition, there were questions the front desk staff could not […] answer (maybe the staff was new?). Lastly, we had to allow the staff to create copies of our passports, which we know is customary. However, several hours later upon our return from an outing, we were asked for our passports again because they had somehow lost the scans - VERY DISCONCERTING! In short, great location, clean room, but service is so-so. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"excellent location, great hotel"
nothing negative to say... just a lot of traffic to get to during peak hours of course. I recommend going to the sister property for dinner or drinks on the rooftop... Best nighttime view of the Acropolis in the city!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We only had a day and a half to see Athens so this hotel was perfect! Right up the street from the Acropolis Museum, short walk to Acropolis, Hadrian's door and Zeus temple. Also, bakery and minimart around the corner for our boys to get extra snacks and water. We took two hotel rooms for the four of us and they gave us two next to each other at a great […] rate.

A great, reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of the sights of Athens.

"A lovely one night stay"
I stayed at the Phillipos towards the end of a lovely island-hopping trip around Greece, just for the night. I wanted something a bit more modern, clean, and close to the sites in Athens as I had done a more pension-type holiday and wanted a bit of luxury. The Phillipos ticks all the above boxes. It's very close to the Acropoli station (2 blocks away), […] the check-in was very efficient and friendly (even with his booming Greek voice), and the location is sensational. Up the road is a nice row of shops and restaurants, and the New Acropolis Museum is basically next door. Another 10min walk and you're either at the bottom of the Parthenon or near the Temple of Zeus. Room-wise it was clean, with crisp sheets and the usual mod-cons. A VERY good view from my balcony (room 507) of the Acropolis. The only slight letdown was that the older tube TV didn't have the right setup so had to flick through multiple channels to find something to watch. A very small complaint though, and to be honest if you're on holiday and want to watch TV, you might as well stay home. Well recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Reasonable hotel by Athens prices, particularly given the location. Good breakfast by european/continental standards. Quite quiet as well, very little surrounding noise and nice decor in the room.

"Great Location, Very Quiet, Helpful Staff"
We stayed there for a conference at the beginning of July 2013. This hotel is in a prime location two blocks from the metro and Acropolis. This is a sister hotel to the slightly more upscale Herodion, which is just up the block and left. Philippos has limited conference facilities on the lower level. On arrival we were placed in room 101, which is *directly* […] behind the front desk. At night this is not a problem, but at 6:30 am, it became unbearably noisy, as breakfast is prepared and served out of the area just on the other side of the wall, which is where the bed is situated. We asked for another room, and after a bit of shuffling (it was at capacity and we had to wait for someone to check out) we moved to a room on the fifth floor, and the end of the hall. It was extremely quiet. While the rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels, the furniture in the rooms (both of them) was a little dirty, with some dark fingerprints on the cabinets, etc. They probably just tend the bed and bathroom, and leave the rest. So a trifle grimy, but nothing serious. The location is really outstanding. We arrived by train and were able to take the metro directly to the hotel, two blocks away; we also took the metro to the airport on departure. This is very convenient. The Acropolis Museum is just up the street, with the Acropolis itself and surrounding walking area a block further up the hill. Everything in the central Acropolis area is within walking distance. Shopping, food, ruins, etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A very pleasant and convenient place to stay"
The most favourable points were as follows: Central location but quiet, close to Acropolis and public transport e.g. Metro and dining places and helpful staff. Absence of a restaurant is a slight disadvantage though there are plenty of good places nearby for eating out. Availability of facilities for making tea/coffee in the room would be a great […] addition. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
