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.
Enjoy breakfast on the terrace as part of your Bed and Breakfast Board Basis. By night, head here for an aperitif, long drink or a tropical cocktail. Castello's offers you Mediterranean and ethnic dishes with a traditional and innovative twist. Sample the Greek, French, Italian and Asian specialities, with specialist chefs preparing each meal option.
Energise your mind and body, and pamper yourself at the spa. Found at the sister hotel Savator, you can choose from a variety of treatments leaving you feeling rejuvenated. There's transport provided, charges apply.
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

Have not been to Greece for about 10 years so it was wonderful to be back and staying in this beautiful, friendly hotel in the old town. It is literally a few hundred yards to the main harbour which is heaving with people during the evening at this time of the year; yet we had no noise - amazing. We stayed in room 19 which had a much bigger balcony than the other rooms and had stunning views of the castle. Breakfast was varied and combined a continental style with a cooked option. Despite not having a swimming pool, you can have access to any pool in the resort. All the owners request is that you do not bring own food and drink but buy something from them. This, I think, is reasonable! Bathroom was a bit dark and shower cubicle a little cramped but everything else overrides this. As stated in the brouchure, you do have to walk a short distance to the hotel as the streets are too tiny to accommodate a taxi. This is not a problem, especially if you take a reasonable amount of luggage. (Can't believe what some people take. What have they got in those cases??) Would highly recommend this place and would definitely go back again.More

Friendly, stylish hidden gem
We stayed here in may having never been to Parma before and loved it.
It seems that most people staying here have been to Parma before and even the hotel acropolis itself many times before.
We had to leave our taxi on the main road and enter some smaller streets which I was a little wary of but all of a sudden it opens up on to a quaint square where this lovely hotel is hidden alongside an old church.
The acropolis is a relatively small hotel which was a huge plus for us. I was a little worried that it would be a restaurant with rooms plonked on the top but that wasn't the case at all.
On arrival a member of staff from the hotel was waiting for us, our passports were taken for checking in and we were told we could leave our luggage and head to the bar for a welcome drink, as flights seem to come at certain times there were a batch of new people at the bar and it was a very friendly atmosphere.
At 27 we were possibly the youngest couple in the hotel and it is mainly couples we saw. This again was a plus side. As it is such a small hotel you get to know everyone staying and we had a really good time getting to know everyone including the bar/ restaurant staff.
We tried the restaurant on the first night and weren't disappointed. This is possibly the poshest restaurant in Parma but still not enough to break the bank. It's only let down for me was the lack of traditional food o the menu? I did like how everything was presented and it tasted amazing too but if you want traditional Greek food perhaps venture out a bit?
Our room had a balcony from which you could see the church and the castle on top of the hill. It was nicely finished and always clean bar a few cheeky ants that took a liking to our tea point.
The staff were quick and happy to help at all times. The only slow point was breakfast, for some reason this takes ages to come out every morning as everyone is served individually, even if that everyone is just 4 of you, it still takes ages. The breakfast itself is lovely though, a mixture of a continental with some traditional Greek bits and some sort of sweet, ie muffin or honey and yoghurt. I really enjoyed the breakfast it was worth the wait in the end.
On leaving we were allowed to keep our luggage in the restaurant, there are no shower facilities etc if you have a late flight back but we bought drinks at a hotel which had a pool and showered there.
The only thing I found missing from this place was perhaps a accommodation and dining package of some sort?
Otherwise it is a great location less than a minutes walk from the hustle and bustle which was just enough to be able to enjoy it without having to endure it. The building itself is beautiful, the restaurant has been lovingly designed, the food's lovely, the staff are friendly, the rooms are well sized, clean and comfortable and the atmosphere is just perfect.
Would definitely recommend.
