smartline Philippion
Ranked #26 of 48 Hotels in Kos Town
Reviewed 20 July 2012

We stayed in these apartments 2011 and although the rooms where quite nice it was like an obstacle course to get to our room, the only way to get to it was around the downstairs pool one slip of the foot and you would be in the pool. The manager was the most grumpy miserable person . The hotel bar had no atmosphere whatsoever . the view from the balcony was noisy a late night bar. the only good thing was George on reception .

Arrived on the Wednesday for a 7 day holiday only to find that they had double booked although the reception told us that there was a "technical problem" and we had to spend the first night in a sub standard hotel.Whilst checking in the following day there was another nice couple who had experienced the same problem.Why O why did I not take heed of previous comments on trip advisor about over booking.All in all its a disgrace that this hotel can take your money in advance and not give you what you paid for.I advise you to stay clear.

Perfect location, look out the window and you can see the sea, lots of lovely bars and restaurants on the same road, not a majorly busy village, no noise from our apartment. Beautiful view from the balcony. Any requests we had e.g. shortage of towels etc was catered too. Staff were very friendly and had helpful recommendations.

Room Tip: We had a room that fitted 4 of us (double bed and two pull out sofa beds) with an amazing balcony to...

On arrival at the Philipion we were advised that there was a problem with the room and were moved to a basic hotel a few streets away. We were told to return the following morning to get our room but never got it until 13.00, losing half of our first day. A third of the hotel, the new wing, has been reposessed by the bank and sold, it is now called the Bristol Sea View apartments. This also means that there is now only one pool at the Phillipion as the roof pool is now part of the Bristol Sea view. I think that this is probably the cause for no rooms being availble, when people are checking in, rather than the excuse we were given by staff, a lot of other customers also had to spend the night in other accommodation.
The apartments are basic and are in desperate need of an update, the rooms look tired. The pool area was rarely swept or cleaned. The staff were friendly enough and the food at the restaurant is of a good standard, chicken slouvaki is good!!! I would not book at the Phillipion again but loved the resort. Its worthwhile hiring a bike and cycling to some of the better beaches at Lambi, about a ten minute ride, as the beaches opposite the hotel aren't up to much.
