This was a little hotel that was comfortable for one night. We stayed in the 'penthouse' (there's only room on the top floor) and it was comfortable. There was a little lift so my husband didn't have to lug our luggage to the top and the view was great. There was a bit of a trick to keeping the water in the shower cabinet as it seemed to leak and the breakfast was simple but filling.

The parking situation is like San Francisco, find a parking spot and don't move! We were there in the “low” season, early April, and considering the narrow one-way streets and the difficulty finding parking, I can't imagine how it works in the summer.

The large hotel lobby has a bar area, which I never saw used, and multiple sofas and chairs; most of the time, it was occupied by the staff on smoking breaks. The smoke leaked under our hotel room door, even tho we were down the hall, around the corner. Luckily, the breakfast room was 2 stair flights down, and no smoke filtered into it. The large buffet breakfast had hot tea/coffee/chocolate, an egg dish, soft/hard boiled eggs, toast, pastries, yogurt and cereal. There was enough for multiple servings, and the hot food was kept warm.

Our 2nd floor room was on the same level as the lobby and entry but in the back. It had a balcony with 2 hard iron seats and a table and a direct view of the street and buildings behind the hotel. With a little craning of our necks, we could see the mountains, but the 3rd floor balconies had more direct views.

The room had a king-size bed with a firm mattress resting on a flat wooden board and a bottom sheet that was too small, 2 night stands, a luggage rack, and a desk. The furniture was veneer, and it was stained and peeling. There were 2 cute wall lights over the night stands, and a light over the desk, but they didn't produce much illumination. The desk had a small TV with remote, hairdryer, and cabinet with small fridge inside. The AC unit, with remote, was on the wall above the desk. Bathroom was average-size with a fan and light switch outside the door. The shower had a hand-held head that could be set above for shampooing, a built in seating area, and a glass barrier that leaked and was only on one side, so that the towels on the rack had to be moved, to avoid spraying them. The water temp and pressure were good. The stand-alone sink had a narrow glass shelf for toiletries, and a very good light above the mirror for shaving and make-up application. Towel rack had 3 bars, but only held one towel, b/c it wasn't fixed into the wall correctly. There were 2 hooks by the sink to hold the hand towels.

Delphi was originally just a place where the Oracle lived and people came to consult her. As time passed, the town was built to accommodate visiting pilgrims but not a regular citizenry unassociated with the temple. Modern Delphi still has that feel, as there aren't shops for locals to buy food and necessities. There are a couple mini-marts, several restaurants, hotels, and gift shops.

The restaurant selection isn't broad, most offer similar menus, so the best places to eat are the ones with the views towards the Bay or mountains. We actually enjoyed a little local “hole-in-the-wall” right across from our hotel, which was patronized by our hotel's staff and lots of locals. It served reasonably priced local dishes. We tried Taverna Vakchos, which had excellent views and great Baklava, but the spinach and cheese pies (pitas), and the Greek Salad were very disappointing; the pies heavy and slightly greasy, and the salad bland and too oily.

There are two free archeological sites down the road about 20 minutes by foot; the Gymnasium, where the athletes trained for the Pythian games and the Sanctuary of Athena. Both are great places for photography and the Sanctuary of Apollo on the hillside is visible from there. The main archeological site is the Sanctuary of Apollo with ruins of treasuries from different ancient cities, Apollo's Temple, the Theater, and the Stadium. Along with the Museum, there is lots to see and imagine its heyday. Get there early to photograph without hordes of bus tourists.

It was the first time that we went in Delphi. In fact we choose the palce
because we skiing in Parnassos and we wanted to avoid crowed Arahova.
We really enjoyed our staying there and particularly in hotel Leto.
It was a nice,clean and comfortable hotel,exactly what we have seeing in internet.
There was a very nice and modern lobby, decorated with great taste.
The owner was very friendly and the rooms were quite cozy.
We spend 70euros per night and I think that it is what you pay.
If there is a disadvantage that was breakfast. It wasn’t bad at all
but it wasn’t and something special. My opinion is that such a hotel
deserves a better breakfast with a little bit imagination!!!!!!!!!
As it concerns the cleanness they did chance the towels every day, not the sheets-
I think that was every second day- .
And although they clean the bath and smell very nice they didn’t do the mopping
in the bathroom but after our observation they did it every day.
