At the Hotel Acropol you can expect a friendly welcome from the Zigouris family, who have been running the historic property for almost 150 years.
Dating back to 1884, the Hotel Acropol was the first hotel in Parga Town. Since then, it's been run by the Zigouris family – the five brothers all chip in, from working in the bar to waiting in the restaurant.
You'll find Hotel Acropol tucked away in the narrow, winding streets of Parga's old town, just minutes from the harbour.

We stayed here for 2 weeks from 8th May. The hotel is one of the first hotels opened in Parga and the building is lovely. Our room was very comfortable and had a sitting room with its own balcony, which was a pleasant surprise! It was well appointed, with a fridge, kettle, safe, air conditioning and 2 balconies. The rooms and bathroom were very clean and that cleanliness was maintained for the length of our stay, 2 weeks. Breakfast was served in the attached restaurant and was prepared freshly for us once we went into the restaurant. It was delicious with a good mix of items. As time went on, we were given what we requested, so,as I prefer to have a lighter breakfast, I could specify what I wanted, whereas my husband preferred to have everything on offer!!
We also had several meals in the evening in the attached restaurant and all the meals we had were absolutely delicious and beautifully cooked. Before each meal we were given a plate of appetisers, which we never paid for, also delicious and at the end of the meal we were given a drink or a dessert, sometimes both, which, again we never paid for!
The staff were all lovely, friendly, efficient and good company. Nothing was too much trouble and they had all obviously worked together as a team and were all local to the town, so their local knowledge was invaluable!
The only drawbacks were the position of the hotel, which meant no coaches could reach it and, as I had recently had a knee replacement, getting up to the main road when we were coming home was an issue. Yet again, the lovely staff took our cases for us but I found the walk steep and quite difficult! Also, there is no lift in the hotel, so I would not recommend it for anyone with mobility difficulties. Also, there is no pool.
I would recommend you take your own hair drier because the one in the bathroom is so underpowered it's really frustrating!
The hotel is quite near to the centre but up,quite a steep incline, so, again, not good if you have mobility difficulties.
Having Saudi all that, a lovely hotel with lovely welcoming staff!More
Central hotel, very close to the waterfront
We discovered this hotel by chance as we hadn't booked a room and we ended up looking for one in Parga. Its location is grea, just a few metres from the waterfront. The room was clean and spacious and the price offered was good. What we really enjoyed was the quietness of the place, altough it was in a central location. We would definitely stay in this hotel again.More
Central, quiet and clean
Our third time i Parga, our first time at hotel Acropol. And a lucky choice that was. A very good location in the middle of the old town. Aquiet place, the roads around the hotel too narrow for cars, the scooters of people who work in the area were the only motorized traffic. Only a couple of minutes walk to the habour with a lot of tavernas and people.
A small hotel, altogether 10 rooms on first and second floor. A charming, old, but very well kept building. No lift, but we manage to carry our luggage these steps. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My wife and I were lucky to get what must be the best of the regular rooms, number 18 on second floor. Nice room and spacy and modern bathroom, and the hotel's biggest balcony, even with a view to the old castle. Our friends, who arrived together with us, got a smaller room on first floor. They asked at the reception if it was possible to change to a bigger room. As one of the suites had not been booked our second week, they were upgraded to this room at no extra cost, and were of course very satisfied.
The rooms were kept very clean, towels were changed every day, bed linen every second or third day. Wi-fi is free at Acropol, and working very well in the rooms. Aircondition is also free, and so is the deposit box in the room. Excellent!
Breakfast at Acropol is a little special. No buffet, but in the hotel's well known restaurant Castello, on ground floor, the young lady from the reception every morning serves a quite individual breakfast. She brings each guest a big plate with all that is needed for a good breakfast. One has to wait a little to be served, but as there are so few rooms, and all guests usually do not come for breakfast at the same time, waiting is not a problem.
A special service for myself as a gluten allergic (coeliac), the gluten free bread that I brought from home got place in a hotel deep freezer. Every morning at breakfast the breakfast/reception lady brought me a packet for the next day. I always bring my own toaster.
With restaurant Castello in the same building, it came natural that we wanted to try it. We knew from Tripadvisor that it is ranged as one of the best in Parga. We ended up having dinner here about half of the 14 nights we were staying here. We just had to remember to book a table, as the restaurant often was fully booked before the evening.
Going back to Parga, hotel will be an easy choice.More
We have been to this lovely family run hotel a few times and will no doubt return again. The location is ideal for going out and about in Parga, just a couple of minutes stroll and you are on the sea front, with its jetty, bars, shops and restaurants. The rooms are comfortable, the staff very helpful and the food in Castellos Restaurant is superb.More
