Nothing to add really to the positive things already said. Sure, the rooms are somewhat small but the welcome from George is larger than what you would get from a five star hotel. George is willing to recommend restaurants nearby. The one directly opposite had a fine view but the cooking left much to be desired. Everything stewed to death. I had a goat stew which was a truly appalling dish, filled with tiny dangerous bones as bad as Greek rabbit stew or Chinese duck dishes. That is not George's fault: just try the salad dishes instead with a local wine.

There's very little I can add to previous reviews of Pitho Rooms, except to confirm what others have said: it is more of a B&B than an hotel; the hosts are utterly charming, generous and helpful, parking can be hard to find, breakfast is good and so is the location. Our room was comfortably appointed, with a nice little balcony, comfortable beds and real attention to small details to ensure we had everything we needed to make our stay a happy one. I was really impressed by how clean and fresh the room was -- a pleasant surprise to be in a really impeccable places! The atmosphere was bright and cheerful. Two small warnings: the host's little canary sang beautifully in the background, but if caged birds distress you, you may find this upsetting; and you will need to climb one or more flights of stairs to get to your room, so if mobility is an issue you may find this challenging, even if your host helps carry your luggage. But Pitho Rooms is a great place and highly recommended.

We stayed for one night. Very good simple accomodations. It is a bed and breakfast not a Hotel. Excellent breakfast served. The hosts are very hospitable and helpfull. It is located on the main street and parking can be difficult.

Firstly, as the title says, you should definitely book direct for the best rates. George is very quick at responding to emails, so you won't have to wait long to get your confirmation. This was an excellent choice of accommodation in Delphi. The hosts George and Vicky are lovely and the rooms are simple but nicely furnished (they are quite large by European standards). The breakfasts are very good (freshly cut watermelon, natural yoghurt, bread still warm from the bakery, cold meat and cheese, cereals, fresh coffee, yummy breakfast cake, etc). The location is great - smack bang in the centre of town, within five minutes walking distance to many lovely cafes / restaurants and only about a ten minute walk to the archaeological site. But best of all is the friendly welcome that awaits you! Highly recommended.

First, know that Pitho Rooms is more of a B&B than a hotel. The first floor is a gift shop with pretty standard Greek tchotchkes and the rooms/breakfast area are upstairs.

The host is extremely friendly, helpful with luggage, and eager to offer tips on sights in the area. The location is on the main drag in Delphi, with easy access to restaurants and markets (great if you want to pick up water or soda for the room, especially considering the room is appointed with a small fridge).

The room was on the small side, as one would expect in a B&B. It was very clean and nicely decorated, with an adorable little balcony that looked into a sweetly decorated courtyard/air shaft.

The bed was quite comfortable, though it had a synthetic comforter that was more chosen for looks than comfort or hygiene. In the height of summer with an adequate-but-not-powerful air conditioner, though, we found ourselves content to sleep with just the sheets. Wi-fi was a bit disappointing- both of Pitho's networks were taking turns acting up, and for a good stretch of time both were completely out.

In the morning, the host offers a continental breakfast.

All in all, Pitho was a great value for the money and would have been a fine choice even at a higher room rate.

Stayed at Pithos in July with my family and George could not make our stay more enjoyable. He was available for our arrival at 11pm and provided us with two rooms but allowing some security for our children. Rooms we're clean, comfortable and homely. Beautiful home made breakfast. We just wished we stayed longer.

This was a very nice, warm and friendly family-run hotel. The host was extremely hospitable and helpful and gave us great recommendations about Deplhi and surrounding areas. The rooms are decent, well equipped, and the hotel is centrally located in Delphi. Great value for money. We are very happy with our stay in Delphi.
