Affordable Lodging in the Heart of Athens

Centrally Located

If you're looking for somewhere quiet and comfortable to stay in Athens, the Philippos Hotel is a gem worth checking out. The full-service hotel sits right in the city center yet on a quiet street. You will be close to all the action but still able to sleep peacefully at night. A 15-minute walk gets you to Central Square, Syntagma Square, and the Parliament building. 

Athens International Airport is 22 miles from the hotel. There are several options for getting to and from the airport. The metro is more budget-friendly than a taxi, but it can get crowded. Those with a lot of baggage may wish to choose another option. If you would like to explore the city on your own, consider renting a car and driving yourself. 

Plenty to do in the Neighborhood

Since the hotel practically sits right on the doorstep of the Acropolis Museum, it might be a good place to start your exploration of the neighborhood. Ask about the Museum Package when booking and receive free tickets to the museum. If you are visiting during the summer, take in a performance at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus Theater at the foot of Acropolis. The stimulating performance set against the illuminated Acropolis will take your breath away. Take a stroll into the past when visiting old world Plaka. Expect to find affordable dining and shopping while there.

Modern Guest Rooms

Elegantly appointed modern guest rooms will assure a restful stay. Feel secure with a card operated door and in-room electronic safe. Air conditioning and double insulated windows will help keep you cool and comfortable. Stay in touch with direct dial phones and voice mail. The room's magnifying mirror and hairdryer will help keep you in style while on vacation. Some rooms include private balconies, and linens get changed daily.

Stay fresh-looking with the 24-hour laundry and dry cleaning services. For a child-free night on the town, take advantage of the offered babysitting service. With a 24-hour concierge, multilingual staff, and exchange service, you will never have to wait for services or answers.

The Bottom Line

We highly recommend the Philippos Hotel Athens if you are looking for comfortable lodging at a reasonable price. The convenient site makes it easy to get around and take in all the attractions. Save even more on your stay by checking out the available package deals when you are booking.

Exceptional central location right below the Acropolis. Restaurants, bars, and public transportation surround this family-run property... Wi-Fi and breakfast are free
Fodor's
Just around the corner from its sister hotel, the Herodion, the Philippos shares its good qualities: a quiet location convenient to the Acropolis and friendly, efficient service.
The Telegraph
This family-friendly hotel in central Athens is a homely and good-value choice, with low-key yet efficient service. It’s on a peaceful side street close to the Acropolis metro station,...
