Acropole Delphi3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I arrived in Delphi about 18:00 on 8 May via the 14:30 KTEL bus from Athens. The bus will drop you at the entrance to the town. I then walked the easy 1.5 blocks along the lower Delphi street to the hotel. This non-main street is a bit quieter and might be preferable in the high season if you want more peace. Check-in was pleasant as the hostess was cheerful and helpful. She gave me a map of the town, and offered a discount card for their "partner" restaurant. Since the lower archaeological site at Delphi is open till 20:00 in summer, I dropped off my bags and walked the 20 minutes or so to the Temple of Athena. Good photo opportunities at sunset. The upper Delphi site opens at 8am, and is about a 15 minute walk, while the worthwhile museum is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Start your visit before 10am, and you'll have no issue with crowds. The entry into the hotel is at street level, and I think that many of the rooms are down a flight or two. My downstairs room was very clean. I had a small balcony looking south into the deep valley, with a distant view to the right of the bay at Kirra. Night time thunder and lightning from the Gods added to the drama. There was a safe in the closet. I had a problem with Wifi access before dinner, but it worked from then on. My bed was a bit hard, but that was fine by me. I could hear other guests at times, depending on their noise level or open windows. I think that this is pretty typical of small hotels in Greece. In any case, it wasn't burdensome in May. The breakfast buffet the next morning was decent, and a little above average for such hotels. Although I did not have a car, I think I saw some parking along the small street. I left the next day, catching another bus heading towards Meteora.
This hotel has a good location with wonderful views from the back side. We had a very pleasant balcony room. The bathrooms are very compact. Unfortunately, the night we were there a large tour group dominated the hotel. We were on the second floor and heard the loud talking and such from the bar until midnight. In the morning the group meet in the dining room and sang at 7:00am, which woke us. When checking out, I mentioned the periods we could not sleep, to the desk clerk. His response was, Well, after the noise was over, didn't you sleep? Not, the response I was looking fr from management.
