This welcoming, white-painted hotel with
varnished pine woodwork, on a quiet street not far from Delphi’s main
attractions, is a pleasant surprise and has far more character than its
attractive, but not particularly individual, exterior and stone-tiled
sitting room might suggest.
top-floor bedrooms have steeply sloping wood ceilings, in a cosy attic
style. Beds and other furnishings are modern, in plain wood, and care
has been taken in the choice of brightly-patterned curtains and
bedcovers which brighten each room. But the big selling point is the
million-dollar view from each balcony, looking down several hundred
metres across the 'sea of olives' in the valley below, and out across the Gulf of Corinth.
This is far and away the most appealing place to stay in Delphi (which is notaby short of hotels and character, as most visitors stay only one night). As it is only five minutes' walk from the ruins of ancient Delphi, it is an excellent base for exploring, and the substantial buffet breakfast will keep you going until dinnertime. Owner Costas 'Babis' Kourelis is friendly, helpful and speaks good English, and his staff are equally amiable. The hotel's parking is especially useful since it is often hard to find a place to park on Delphi's narrow streets.
