We arrived yesterday for a one stay before heading to Naxos. We booked this hotel due to being just a 5 minute walk from Thira.
Upon arrival we were given a very warm welcome and in-depth explanation of the island.
We were taken to our room which was beautiful. We booked the 2 bedroom family room which was perfect and had a large balcony overlooking the rear of the property. The room was very quiet and I had the best nights sleep in a long time. The room itself was very clean and had everything we needed. Shower lovely. Perfect for a family travelling with teenagers.
If you cross the road outside you will be looking right at the volcano itself.
Yes the hotel is on a busy road but this was expected as it’s the main road into Thira and we didn’t hear any noise whilst in our room and the pool is located at the rear of the property and has lovely gentle music playing so no noise heard there either .
There are 14 sunbeds around the pool and a few tables and chairs, the pool is refreshing and inviting and a decent size for a boutique hotel. Pool towels are provided. Drinks and snacks available round the pool at very reasonable prices.
The staff here are excellent, polite, professional and friendly and were very helpful.
Breakfast was lovely, topped up constantly, very fresh and all areas kept so very clean, There was the usual choices, yoghurt, cereals, fruit, breads,pastries, cakes,cheeses,meats, bacon, sausages,eggs, coffee and juices.
In my opinion this is a beautiful small boutique hotel in a perfect location.
If you are looking for a relaxing stay very close to the town and with fantastic facilities and service this hotel will suit you perfectly.
We look forward to returning in a weeks time for 2 further nights before we fly home.
Highly recommended,

We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights and had the best time. The hotel was reasonably priced for Santorini and very clean. The staff went above and beyond and are a real credit to the hotel. The hotel arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the port. The taxi was waiting for us when we arrived.
Luca who was on reception was so inviting and friendly. He gave us lots of information and made suggestions on where to visit. A friendly guy then took our cases to our room. The room was spacious and had everything you needed. We had a lovely little pool view room. The hotel is so clean and towels are changed daily. The cleaners were very friendly.
Breakfast is served daily. It is pretty basic but very fresh and is topped up until the minute it finishes at 10am. The guy at the bar was super friendly and always had a smile on his face. Nothing was a problem.

The location is fantastic. You are about a 5/10 min walk from Fira.

I would recommend using the public busses. The bus terminal is about a 5 minute walk and the busses go everywhere. They are no more than 2 euros.

Defiantly visit Oia this is wheee you will get lots of beautiful pictures and views.

We got the bus to Kamari which was lively too. Lots of lovely restaurants which are cheaper than fira and beaches too.

I would recommend hiring a quad. The hotel arranged this for us and it was 50 euros for the day. We managed to go around the full island exploring.

Over all we had the best honeymoon and couldn’t than the staff enough for the great service.

I would like to thank the staff for accommodating me after I informed them I will arrive very late. (after 1:00am) The night guard was friendly and carried our luggage all the way to our room. Wish I knew his name. He was kind and tended to all our needs. The room was very clean and had nice views across the street. Its a short walk to the town of Fira as well. I want to say thank you to the entire staff ! I will return hopefully sooner than later. All the best from Javier and Elizabeth (New York City)

We'd booked at this hotel for a stay between 14th July - 21st July, unfortunately I had to cancel my stay on the 12th July. The hotel has charged me 476 Euro as cancellation charges for the entire period. This is peak season in Santorini, jam packed and big demand for hotel rooms. Not only have Philippion charged me I'm sure given out my room to other customers and surely made a tidy sum. Fleecing and unethical I call this.

I had booked a room in 2021 but was unable travel due to the pandemic. They refused to give me a refund and offered a voucher valid for one year. When I called this year to make a reservation and told them I had a voucher they told me point blank they did not have any rooms available! In short, they put my US$3,000 in their pocket and didn't even try to accommodate me for a later date. I called numerous times asking to speak with a manager but was told these matters have to be addressed with the owner who, very conveniently, is always away from the island. So please, be careful so it doesn't happen to you!

The room had a damp smell
The room was dirty, there were hairs everywhere, in the bathroom and all over the bed.
The place was dirty, everything needs gutting and updating. The bed is against the wall, not ideal especially for older people.
The air conditioning unit was on the balcony.
The pool was dirty.
The breakfast was awful, very little choice and rarely replenished.
Located on a very busy road.
Thank goodness we only stayed one night, one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in.

Luca in reception was absolutely amazing. From start to finish. As soon as we arrived he was very welcoming and explained to us all that we needed to know about the island for our trip. The guys who worked in the bar and breakfast were fantastic. Very friendly and couldn't do enough for you! The hotel is lovely. Very clean and spacious! Brilliant location. Only a short 5 minute walk to the town. I can't recommend this hotel enough for your stay in Santorini!

We had the loveliest time in Santorini in no small part due to the Philippion. It was gorgeous, the breakfast was delightful and the staff were attentive. We were a VERY short walking distance to Fira. It had a gorgeous view of the caldera. I highly recommend!!

Answer from Paul S
We stayed at the Philippion and rented an ATV and loved it. We used Tony's Rentals. Tony picked us up at the Philippion and brought us to his shop in downtown Fira to get the ATV, and dropped us off at the hotel when we returned the ATV 2 days later. We drove it all over the island. You can also park it in the hotel parking lot free of charge.

We stayed somewhere else for our 1st 3 nights but the morning we were leaving the Philippion, their driver dropped us off at the ferry so I would think, they would do the same with pick ups from the ferry. We paid €15 for 2 of us to get to our 1st hotel from the ferry-just FYI. Enjoy!!
