Great Location

If you are looking for a hotel that is near the Acropolis and the new museum, then this is the place for you. You are literally two blocks from everything. It's great for a night stroll to see the Acropolis or to spend some time strolling through the Plaka. If you are looking for a relaxing hotel with great rooms, then this is not the place for you. The rooms are very small. It was difficult for two of us to even move around in the room. It was also very hard to keep the room cool. We had to open windows to sleep because it was so warm. The continental breakfast is good, but not extensive. Our overall experience was good, but would have been better to have a bit larger room.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are looking for a hotel in the heart of the Acropolis and the Plaka, then this would be a nice one if you aren't planning to spend much time in the room.

Close to Acropolis, helpful staff

Very close to Acropolis, very friendly and helpful staff. My room was small, but had a nice terrace. Complimentary breakfast was ok. I wish they'd had real orange juice and not the acidic concentrate ubiquitous in many hotels. Very good value overall. Near metro station (Acropolis).

Location, Location, Location!

We stayed one night at the Hotel Philippos after our cruise ended, and were soooooo glad we found this gem of a small, almost boutique hotel within a hopping distance of the Acropolis and the most wonderful pedestrian street filled with shops and restaurants. The hotel is sparkling clean marble throughout the lobby and small breakfast area. Contemporary feel. The staff were nice. We were given a fabulous room (ask for 601!) that had a humongous balcony with lounge chair and table/chairs for sitting outside in the quiet evening and watching the moon drift over the hills. The Hotel Philippos is in a residential area right below the Acropolis ((about 4 blocks away), so busy street noise was at a minimum, and the air conditioning unit in the room blocked any leftover noise as well. Nice sleeping! We left too early to experience the included breakfast buffet sadly. BUT, the bottom line is that we would return to the Hotel Philippos in a heartbeat if we return to Athens. Being able to walk to small shops and lots of restaurants, as well as being able to see the Acropolis from our balcony, as well,as the sparkling clean accommodations, as well as the intimate boutique feel....what can I say? Excellent hotel.

Spring in Athens

Very nice room on the 6th floor with wonderful balcony with view of the Acropolis. However, paper thin walls, could hear the conversation from adjacent room. Can't beta the location though - easy access to Metro and historic site sin central Athens.
