Philippos Hotel is a cosy property on a quiet side street in Athens's city centre. It is a 2-minute walk from the Acropolis Museum at the foot of the Acropolis, which is crowned by the ruins of the Parthenon temple. The museum is one of Lonely Planet's Top Choice attractions in Athens.

The hotel is close to the old quarter, which is known for its range of shops and restaurants. Syntagma Square, by the Greek Parliament building in the city centre, are both around 15 minutes' walk away. Acropolis Metro station is a 2-minute walk from the hotel.

A buffet breakfast is served from 7-10am in the hotel's café, where you can also order drinks throughout the day. Service is "low-key yet efficient", says The Daily Telegraph. There is no restaurant on site, but guests get a 10% discount on meals at the Herodion Hotel (the hotel's sister property), which is a 2-minute walk away.

There are 50 bedrooms, each with air conditioning and free Wi-Fi. Some of the rooms offer views of the Acropolis.
