I've shared this tidbit About Delphi rooms many times, but once more won't hurt. I was told by a friend & delphi resident to look at Hotel Pan, on that aforementioned "main Street". We got off the bus (NOT at the entry to the ancient site, but uphill about 1/4 mile, where bus has its terminus -- not an official place, just a marked stop, n front of a souvenir store which sells the tickets). We walked downhill about 100yards, and went into the lobby. The owner offered us rooms on the Main floor, behind the lobby. Uh, well, I said dubiously, let's take a look first. There was a corridor behind, paralleling the lobby... we entered a room and walked thru french doors onto its balcony. Hawks were circling -- BELOW our feet!... a 200+ foot drop to small houses below, and view was DOWN a mountainside, across a valley of olive groves, to the sea & lowering sun. We'll take it! I said.
Hotelier suggested we could see the Museum, since (June 2) it was on summer hours, open til 8. Afterwards we strolled back uphill 100 yards beyond hotel, past a couple of fancy restaurants with long menus, to a simple cafe that was across from bus stop/souvenir store. It had outdoor terrace. Inside, lively music, and a pool table & video-games being used by teens (your boys may like that). At sunset on terrace, we enjoyed simple fresh dinners of spaghetti, as good as in Italy. A special treat -- the waitress didn't try to sell us bottled water, filled our glasses from a big pitcher. It was AMBROSIA!! Where does this wonderful water come from? we asked. We just pipe it straight downhill from Mt. Parnasus, from the snow-melt, she said, no chemicals. We drank up & got another pitcherfull. Wish I'd thought to fill my day-bag thermos!
SO ... I recommend 2 adjoiningrooms at Pan, any back-facing room. If not available, go across the street to Hotel Artemis (owned by Pan Hotel's brother), and get upper-floor FRONT balcony rooms, for same view. Win-Win.
