"First time in Athens"
From the time we checked into the hotel I knew we had made a wonderful choice. The reception desk was very helpful and nice and genuinely happy to see us there. They were very accommodating to any requests that we had. Our room was very clean, and suited our needs for the stay. I love the location, which is literally 2 blocks from the Acropolis. I'm very happy with this hotel and would definitely go back whenever I visit Athens again.

"Great location for Acropolis and museum"
The location makes this the perfect place to stay while visiting the Archeological Museum and the Acropolis. Breakfast menu is varied and offered in a pleasant dining room. Taxi cabs are called and arrived within 2-3 minutes. The hotel ownership has a second hotel one block away (the Herodian) with a roof deck and Parthenon viewing area that is open to Philippos Hotel guests. We had dinner twice at that location. We would return to this venue.

"Amazing location, simple hotel"
- Great location- close to the metro, the Acropolis and its museum, and many more. - Small bathrooms- though the bathrooms could have easily been smaller, it was very noticeable that their size was rather small. - The staff were very helpful, though some of them were sometimes a bit cold. - We were given a late check out, which was very kind and helpful. Overall experience- 7/10.

"Great hotel close to the Acropolis and the museum"
The hotel was wonderful. The room was very clean, the bathroom very clean, although small. Great area near the Acropolis and the neighborhood was wonderful with lots of resturants, shops, etc. Was really glad we booked this particular hotel. We never needed a car for sightseeing. The metro stop was so close and we were able to get from the airport to Syntagma Square, change trains, and one more stop we were at our location. The breakfast was nice, good variety. Would definitely book this again if we find ourselves going back to Athens.

"Wonderful hotel"
Stayed here for the 2nd time. Very night hotel, great value. Friendly staff, decent breakfast. Only downside was the A/C in our room wasn't great. Even at full blast it couldn't keep us cool. Probably just an issue with our specific room. We mentioned it to the hotel staff and they gave us a 2nd "key card" to leave in the slot all day so that the A/C wouldn't turn off when we left. That helped a little bit. They said we could change rooms, but it was too much trouble, so we just dealt with it. Not a huge deal. Overall, great stay. Would stay here again.

"Great location but not great value"
They have a set of rooms that are really bad - tiny with poor air-conditioning - yet they are at the same price as the bigger and better rooms. Make sure you do not get a room on the first or seventh floors. And in general, air-conditioning appeared to be a problem. But then the location is great, being close to the Acropolis and Plaka.

"Good location for tourists"
Quiet street behind the Acropolis museum. I stayed 3 nights and got a good price. Ask for a balcony. I like to walk and felt it was an easy walk to most of the tourists sights. The hotel is modern and clean. Much safer area than many places in Athens. Several families stayed there.

"Excellent Location and Great Breakfast!"
This hotel is a little gem just south of the Acropolis. It is very clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. The breakfast is filling (Greek yogurt is so delicious!) and the hotel is close to restaurants and the metro station. It is located in a residential area so the neighborhood is also very quiet and located about two blocks away from a supermarket and convenience store. My only complaint about the hotel is that the bathroom in our room was quite cramped. (The door opened inward onto the toilet so you have to shimmy around a half-opened door to get inside.) It was very clean, however, and the rest of the room was very comfortable. I especially liked that a safe was available to us in our room and we even had a little refrigerator to store our late-night snacks and cold drinks.

"Hotel very sparse- breakfasts austere"
The best of this hotel was the staff- they were so helpful and obliging. The hotel is old, the rooms tiny, A/C not adequate, breakfast very austere and limited, location good. The amenities not good, they give you 30 minutes free internet and they service is slower than a snail. This is good for young backpackers on a limited budget who do not expect very much. We would not stay there again.

"Location can't be beat"
Almost impossible to be closer to Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, and Plaka. Perfect area to stay in Athens with the metro right around the corner and many restaurants and shopping all within a few blocks. The rooms are small, but that is typical in Athens. Hotel is clean and modern. Breakfast was fantastic. Many things homemade including the yogurt. I have been to Athens many times and would return to this hotel without hesitation.

"Spectacular View"
We arrived at our hotel from a 12 day cruise at approximately 9 A.M. We knew that the check in time wasn't until 2 P.M. and were just expecting to be able to drop our luggage and return later in the afternoon. Much to our suprise our room was actually available and the front desk man was so very nice and he allowed up to drop our bags in our room early! When we went up to the room, we had a full length balconly of our room and the most spectacular view of the Parthenon! We enjoyed staying here very much and feel like we couldn't have picked a better spot for our needs. Shopping, Eating, and the Acropolis were all within walking distance

"Great to stay at with kids!"
The staff at Philippos Hotel were amazing! They were so accommodating and never said no to a request. We rented a car for two days and because parking is near impossible to find around the hotel, the staff moved their "no parking" signs and allowed us to park right in front of the hotel! Breakfast was great every morning and they were always so happy and pleasant to be around. My children received a lot of attention and hugs! The staff even brought us clean linens and towels at 2 o'clock in the morning within minutes of our phone call when one of our kids got sick in the middle of the night. And when I apologetically explained the situation to the maid the next morning, she quickly made me feel at ease and told me not to worry about it. We are Americans who currently live in Europe and this was the absolute best customer service we have received in the last two years! We just loved our stay here and HIGHLY recommend it to others, especially those with children!

Great location, two minute walk to Acropolis Museum. Great restaurants nearby. Staff exceeds expectations.. Acropoli Metro closest metro. Metro is fastest way from the airport. Next best way is to take the 95X bus outside airport arrivals to Symntagna Square (last stop), then take a taxi to hotel. Five euros for the bus, four for the taxi.

"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.

"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.

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.

"Strange Vibe"
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 perfunctory.

Lovely budget hotel, very good value for money. I only had the standard single which is a bit depressing as has no balcony and a window looking onto a wall and very dark, but it was adequate and you get what you pay for! If I stayed again I would probably pay a bit more to get a double room with bacony like my friend had. The sister hotel Herodion is a few metres away and has a really lovely bar area and you can get a voucher for a complimentary glass of wine with your food there too. Great location for Acropolis and would recommend. Nice friendly staff too!

"Lovely long weekend"
Stayed at Philippos hotel from 5th to 8th February 2015. The man on the front desk was incredibly helpful when we arrived giving us leaflets and restaurant/tour recommendations and it was lovely to be welcomed back to the hotel in such a friendly manner each evening. Delicious breakfast with lots of choice and our room was nice and quiet at night and always cleaned. Negatives we found were that upon arriving in our room on the first day it smelled strongly of cigarette smoke and we had to open the windows wide to air it out, it was as if the cleaners were smoking while making up the beds as the smell returned to our non-smoking room while we were out the following day. Unfortunately aswell we seemed to have the smallest room in the hotel judging by the fire evacuation floor plan map - I'd recommend this hotel, but request a room with a number ending less than 10 (we stayed in 411) as rooms on that side look a little larger. Overall, a wonderful trip.

"Value hotel cannot ask for anything more"
The hotel is close to Acropolis sight seeing areas. It is quiet and away from the main shopping district mostly around Syntagma Square, and if you plan to shop around Syntagma, either take a train or have a walk around 30 minutes to get there. The area is quiet at night and opposite the Metro there are a few restaurants. One thing worth noting is the staffs, they are absolutely great and friendly. They even allowed us a late checkout. The room is small and bathroom is very tiny, ask for the room with the balcony facing the Acropolis. Overall if you are not fussy then this is a good value hotel. We stayed there for 7 nights.
