Philippos Hotel
Ranked #20 of 281 Hotels in Athens
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 May 2011

After staying at the Philippos in 2007, I returned to stay 10 days. All the good things about the hotel were still present--and consistency is a real value to me. The staff got to know me quickly and helped with every detail. This is a quiet hotel a couple blocks from the Acropolis Museum. Breakfast buffet is ample and includes great Greek yogurt. Fresh flowers in the lobby, clean and neat decorations--all of that at a decent price. The only problem is the slow computers in the "garden room." There's a charge for use of the unsecured Wifi even if you bring your own computer.

Room Tip: Facing the front door, right side rooms are best

We were booked for 2 nights and ended up staying four! The hotel is really clean and well run. The staff are friendly and helpful, and everything we needed was close by (ATM,car hire, good eating, metro station). The neighbourhood is safe, and is at the base of the Acropolis, and the room had a view of the Parthenon (though not all rooms do). The wi-fi is extra, but works well. The room is quiet, and the breakfast is help yourself buffet style. The TV reception for some channels was snow-storm, but after a day sightseeing in Athens and a good meal, we didn't miss it. All-in-all, a great value hotel and if we ever return to Athens we will be back at this hotel.

We'd never been to Athens before and we were very impressed with this modern hotel and especially its location which provided us with a great view of the Parthenon from our balcony!. The room was on the 5th level, spacious and spotless. As mentioned to be able to open the sliding door to the balcony and marvel at the Parthenon was something special. Its location was wonderful, being within walking distance of all the main historical sights in the older section of Athens. The staff were friendly, the breakfast was great and we would certainly return to the hotel. Highly recommended!

Pleasant, comfortable hotel, fairly new inside, located in 'quiet' area (some disturbance in the day time from a barking dog left by its owner on an apartment balcony across the street - not the hotel's fault, of course). We stayed in Jan 2011 and got an excellent deal. The location, near the Acropolis museum, is about as good as it gets in Athens. Helpful, low-key staff.

Hotel was located very well, easy walk to all sights.
Room was basic but clean, had a balcony but no view.
Bedding was clean but scratchy blankets.
Overall, stay was ok, good location, basic clean room and the rate included a buffet breakfast.

We paid 67 euros - it was a perfect 3-star hotel, in an excellent location. Internet cost 6 euros a day, which seemed a fair price.The free breakfast, is fantastic and out room had a view of the Acropolis. For the money we paid, the hotel was very much worth it.

My friend originally chose the Philippos Hotel for its location and was so pleased with what it offered that we went back. It's within easy walking distance of the Acropolis and Plaka and the Metro. We're both of an age where we want comfy beds, clean bathrooms and quiet surroundings and the Philippos gave us all that plus a super breakfast choice as well. Beds firm, rooms clean, bathrooms might be a tad difficult to the circumferentially challenged, but the water is lovely and hot. Were I to visit Athens again I wouldn't bother looking anywhere else.
