“Huge rooms”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Stayed her for a stopover for one night with friends. Room was husge and very clean. As we had a corner room we had a round about balcony with views of the sea. Would love to return in the summer. Just a pity the restaurant was only opened at the weekend as the breakfast was very good and it would have been nice to sample their evening meals. Staff were very polite and friendly with the evening reeceptionist giving us a good restaurant to eat.

Room Tip: try to get a corner room

Stayed here for one night on a stopover. Huge rooms, very clean, friendly polite staff and a decent breakfast. Price very reasonable. Would happily stay again, hopefully in the summer months, so as to get use of the pool. Unfortunately, restaurant open only weekends in the winter, so can't comment on that.

I honestly believe my 1-day stay at the Philoxenia can be rated among my top10 B&B stays in Greece.

Where should I start?

1) Extremely polite and helpful staff. Dressed impeccably, behaved like proper professionals.
2) Absolutely no fuss when it came to our reservation having to be changed.
3) Huge rooms, and I mean huge. Very clean and modern. Amazing (and very big) balcony too.
4) Room facilities such as a cooker, kitchen utensils, big refrigerator.
5) Excellent breakfast, (bacon, sausages, tomatoes and eggs, cereal, juices, jams, honey, cheeses, cold cuts).

All this for the bargain price of €40. Excellent value for money.

11km from Halkida's town center (at the old Bridge), which is not that bad (10 minute drive)

We'll visit again.

Philoxenia hotel is a very nice, new hotel with a small pool. We had a very big room with kitchen at the 4th floor with a big terrasse with an amazing view over the landscape with mountains in the background. We could also see the sea, it was really beautiful. The beds very good, all very clean. The aircondition made a lot of noise at night, but we had to have it on as the temperature was extremely high in that period. The bathroom is very small though, but ok. Breakfast was good, but to our taste too much cakes. Hotel just a few minutes from the beach and all the tavernas.

Gregoris, the manager was extremely nice and kind and helpful, he did everything to make us feel good. In fact all the staff were so kind. We were probably the only foreigners there as most guests and people in Lefkanti are greeks, but we had greek friends living there. If you dont rent a car there are buses to bring you to different towns as forinstance Halkida.

We shall indeed return.

When i first met the manager of Philoxenia hotel i was really taken by his warm smile and welcoming manner. Gregory is one of a kind and an incredible host. If you need to stay out of the central Greece mainstream of Athens and all that hubba bubba then Philoxenia is just an hour or so away. I found the hotel to be superb in every detail , modern , fresh , super clean and a wonderful breakfast. There is a pool in the entrance way where you can enjoy a morning coffee or snack and the beach is just around the corner and what a beach ! Several tiny Taverns are along the sea promenade and a variety of cafe bars and shops , all in all , everything needed for a short break.
The hotel itself is so spacious , extremely large balconies amazingly large rooms , huge beds and the bathroom and kitchen speak for themselves. No need to worry about security as every hall and entrance way is monitored night and day and there is always some one on reception to help you out any time you need it.

I have stayed at Philoxenia on several occasions for business purposes mainly but while there i have many many Athenians and foreigners alike at the hotel bar in the evening enjoying a nice chat and the excellent refreshments they have to offer.

Anyone considering a little get away from it all at very reasonable prices should really pay a visit Philoxenia , believe me it is well worth it , an excellent central point for touring the magnificent unknown beautiful island of Evia .
Take care all ! My best wishes to you and happy holidays ! Ray McGarry .

We stayed in May 2010.

Hotel's good things:
clean
breakfast ok! There were no tomatoes, but after asking we had them every day.
rooms ok
hotel is new
not noisy, very peaciful area
very, very friendly staff, especially Grigory :), he helped and adviced with local things a lot!

Hotel's bad things:
location of the hotel is not really satisfied us, we rent a car, and thus we went somewhere around the island every day.
no good restaurants around, we had to go to have the dinner to Eretria, the best restaurant in Eretria is La Cubana (family run restaurant). There you can have the best greek salad on the island Evia!

Not fancy, but brand new, well-constructed, very spacious, and very reasonably priced. The Philoxenia has 14 rooms and 15 suite/apartments, in a variety of sizes. The one our family of five stayed in was definitely not the largest, and yet there was more than ample room for all. Very efficient and friendly staff, everything was very clean. Large balconies, many with sea view. Nice large pool with pool-side snack-bar for those times you don't want to walk the one block to the beach. Adequate breakfast buffet. Several restaraunts/tavernas within walking distance, all reasonably priced. One of the very best hotels for the money we have seen in a "tourist area" in Greece for family vacations. We will undoubtedly be back!
