Nice staff, great location, nice breakfast, very good condition overall

Best thing about hotel is the location, its just steps away from the acropolis. Breakfast was okay, but the room was too small. The bathroom was extremely small. The view from the terrace was the best, as our room faced the acropolis, so that made the experience a little better.

This hotel is located in a nice location but the rooms are awful. The room was extremely small. The TV did not work, the air conditioning did not work and the room smelled terrible. The bed was two single beds pushed together. I could not sleep it was so hot and stunk. I had to change rooms because the first room I provided smelled so bad I could not breath. The second room was slightly better but still awful. The bathroom and shower are terrible even for European standards. I have been in bigger bathrooms on planes. This hotel is not properly rated. I'd stay at a hostel before booking this. The pictures advertised are from a sister property. I strongly advise staying somewhere else.

Philippos Hotel is within walking distance to the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. The staff is very friendly, helpful and attentive.

Perfect walking distance to food, shopping and sites

The room we had was clean and very quiet, not a disturbing sound can be heard at night. Front desk staff was courteous and helpful. Breakfast room was bright and tidy, with good variety of breakfast items. Hotel is close to subway and tramway stations with trains that bring you to different parts of Athens and a little beyond.

Front desk staff was extremely helpful when a port strike upset our travel plans. They went the extra mile to help us cancel a reservation on an island we could not get to due to the strike.

Great location! Friendly staff with 24 hour open office

Is a very nice hotel next to the Acropolis and the night life of athens but i believe the price is a little bit high. For sure is worth it but you may get accomodation near for better price.

the hotel is 5min walk from the acropoli metro station, plaka, acropoli enterance. loved the location. hotel is clean. rooms are very roomy and clean. no complain

The hotel was in a great location. It was clean and pleasant. The service was helpful. The hotel was a good value considering all aspects.

Staff were very nice and the location is good. The room was fairly plain but the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was tasty.

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.

This place was incredibly friendly. They helped me find a great place for dinner and insures that I didn't get lost.

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).

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.

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.

I joined a group tour that selected the Phillipos Hotel. The Hotel itself is Spartan but clean. The staff bends over backwards to make your stay comfortable. They could not be friendlier. But the real selling point is being a couple of blocks from the Acropolis and the Plaka. You can walk anywhere from here. If you want to upgrade in quality and amenities, try their sister hotel, the Herodion just around the block.

Dear Guest Thank you for taking time to reflect on your stay at Philippos and we are pleased that our prime location worked well for you. Please note that our rooms are available with twin beds, separately made up, or a double bed, both options equally valid as different guests go for different needs. The size of the room and bathrooms vary, but each and every one of them falls within European standards. We take into account your negative comments and certainly review them with the maintenance team. Nevertheless, allow me to clarify that our new LG smart TVs offer 26 channels, including 8 satelites and our air conditioning never stopped working during the season for any reason. We do offer as well a 24h maitance service that could attend to all guests needs if reported on the day of the stya. As you already state in your review our staff offered another room. We are constantly examining service and trying to ensure that a high standard is achieved throughout our family run hotel; We were saddened to know we did not achieve this for you. Kind Regards, Reservations Department
