We stayed at the Hotel Philippos based and reviews and also our budget! (Euro's are twice as much to the Australian dollar). We paid EUR 110 per night. incl. breakfast for 2.
First room we were allocated was really small - like a shoe box and the bathroom had one of those really annoying curtins which went across the shower and toilet! The room did have a nice large balcony however.
So the next day we asked to be room moved for our last night - mainly beacuse of the bathroom and we were given a room on the 4th floor which was more spacious and had a decent bathroom. Ahhhhh.. much better!
Both rooms had a tiny view of the acropolis as they both faced onto the main street of the hotel.
However the hotel has obviously had a refurb and was very moden and clean. Breakfast was also very good and quite adequate.
The best thing about the hotel was the location! 1 min. walk to the new museaum (when it opens) and about 300m to the Acropolis. Took us about 10 min to walk to the Plaka area and abour 15 mins to get to Syntegma Square (not sure if I am spelling that correctly).
Really safe location - my partner actually went for a run each morning and loved it.
Would have no problem in staying here again... but next time if I wasnt happy with the first room they gave me I would immediately complain.
Tip - they have floor plans of the floor you are on at the back of the bedroom door so you can see the size of each room. ... some looked quite large - perhaps more expensive? Helps when you are wanting to change rooms.
Overall conclusion - very nice budget hotel to stay in Athens.
