“Solid for its price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

Stayed in this hotel for two nights, the room was ok but too small because we asked for a room with four beds, and they gave us a room with two beds and they just put two extra beds in. So, there was too little space inside. Breakfast was ok. The location is perfect, 5min walking to Victoria metro station (green metro line) and you can also walk to the center. We walked to Monastiraki and to the Acropolis and it took us around 30min. The hotel is quite cheap, with average service, but it's great if you're looking just for a shower and a bed and no luxury. For its price and location it's more than great!

20 euro for an ensuite single room with breakfast, internet and A/C on Athens central, looks a very good deal. They promised an A/C room, that worked, promised an wifi for free that works from the room and the common places. Instead of this it worked only in the ground floor, nowhere else. They promised a breakfast, that u get is bread, jams, ham and cheese. The room was smelly and in very bad condition. I wasn't in an "explorer mood" to try the bathroom. :-) Location: 15 minutes walk up in the street from Larissa station.

Room Tip: No good rooms, im sure.

We stayed at Hotel Filoxenia and it is very noisy during the night. There are students all year round. Partying almost every night. The hotel staff not intrested that you cannot sleep. They were banging the doors all night not careing about anyone else. Also the room and the bathroom was not cleaned properly.
Not recommended.

I stayed in Filoxenia during Oct 2008. I stayed for 6 nights. It was a basic hotel, with roof top Breakfast provision. It costed EU35, or, INR 2300 per night that time. The only drawback I found, was the elevator. It was quite suffocating. The location was close from Viktoria Metro station. So, whether you want to go to Acropolis or Monastiraki all seemed quite close. I used to eat only Gyros & Souvlaki (as it was cheap, heavy & delicious). There were lot of shops making both souvlaki & Gyros nearby. I have noticed Arabs & Turks having smoke all the time just outside the Hotel, in a next building Ground Floor (Caffe...........So called). Room was surprisingly big, bathroom had both hot and cold water. Breakfast had little choice but enormous quantity and great in taste.

Room Tip: Be it Monastiraki, Agora, Acropolis or Delphi or Epidorious trips, it all passes over this Acahrnon...

We had booked this hotel for five people by booking online . When we reached this hotel at night we were told the hotel is full and can not accommodate people in-spite of confirmed booking and we were told to go to another hotel which was far away from this place. It is located in one or the shadiest place of athens. While we were walking with luggage to another hotel on the same street the mugging happened and chain from my mothers neck was snatched In front of the hotel. Later on we came to know the hotel is one of the most unpopular because of the locality. I would strongly suggest avoid this hotel for booking. The hotel did not offer any return of money nor they offered any apologies.

Stayed at the Filoxenia Hotel for two nights. Patio door wouldn't lock. Lock broken. Girl on reception 'tried' but failed to persuade me to take the room anyway, but It wasn't her cases that could have been stolen. Pathetic! She said that the maintenance chap would fix the lock the following day. Surprise, surprise, he didn't turn up. Door handles missing from wardrobe. Some of the drawers in the units didn't open. I asked for an early morning call and this was promised, but didn't happen. Good job I wasn't relying on this for a flight! Breakfast basic, but good. Bed comfortable.

We stayed at the Filoxenia Hotel for three nights. It cost us 20 Euro a room a night. This is the best value I have ever gotten for that price. the Hotel is slightly old and worn. The rooms were simple, but impeccably clean. The bathroom, in spite of its age was also spotless. The staff were friendly and helpful. This is a part of the city with lots of foreigners and poverty, but we never felt unsafe. The Victoria Metro is round the corner and can take you anywhere. The only complaint I had was that we would have found it easier with a detailed map.

Room Tip: Room on the inside - away from street.
