View of Acropolis from the Philippos hotel in AthensSmall but comfortable and quite centrally located, in fact just opposite the Acropolis Museum! There are also many restaurants nearby. We found one very decent and reasonable local, non-touristy restaurant very nearby. Unfortunately I cannot recall the name but very easy to locate. Come out of the hotel, turn left, then take the first road on your right. The small restaurant is on your right. Hot nice local food at very reasonable prices.

The receptionist at the hotel Mr Malkis was incredibly friendly and helpful.

The hotel was in a great location! It was clean, but was a little out dated. Service was nice!

Excellent place to stay, and the staff was outstanding and very friendly. I would recommend it to anyone unless you are looking for a grand Hilton etc. It is very close to the Parthenon and the Plaka for shopping

Lovely hotel, and located in a perfect spot. We could walk every from here. Some of the rooms are quite small, but the balcony was nice. The staff was helpful and friendly.

I had asked for a small hotel as near to Acropolis as possible, and Hotel Philippos, chosen by Dolphin Hellas was perfect. It is almost next door to Acropolis Museum, 10 minutes walk from Plaka. We could see all the important sites walking. The hotel was small but provided excellent service. Got free wifi on most days( thanks to its manager).Rooms were clean and of adequate size.Buffet breakfast was excellent
