Stayed 3 nights in Acropole Hotel. Mr George, his wonderful wife his older brother, and all the staff made my stay perfect. Anything, and I mean anything you needed or had curiosity about, they would take care of and give you answers. I stayed during Ramadam so eating at lunch in the office was not possible. George organized a packed... More

The Acropole hotel is a brilliant, family run enterprise. Absolute highlight is the tour of Khartoum they offer - definitely worth doing as it includes all the highlights! The breakfast was very good, though the self service buffet dinner consisted of one choice - i.e. No a la carte. The family running it are extremely helpful in suggesting itineraries and... More

Stayed here on a business trip which, owing to Sudan's 'quirky' red tape and unique approach to politics and law and order, necessitated a lot of flexibility. The lovely owners/management were fantastic throughout. From staying up until 3am to meet us, to happily sorting us out with rooms at the drop of a hat, they were unswervingly friendly, understanding and... More

Stayed there at four different times between 2007-2010 for a period of 5-8 days each time. The accommodation is clean but not snazzy. What brought us back was the comfort, hospitality and little things that the Greek owners furnished all their guests with. That made all the difference. In addition to the excellent WiFi, printing was not an issue as... More

It might not have the best facilities like the 5 star hotels, but it is run by the best and most caring and generous family they will make you feel like you're at home. They arranged to get me photography permit and a local sim card. If you're visiting Khartoum do yourself a favor and stay at Acropole hotel.

I was for one month in the Acropole hotel and was very satisfied. It is clean, big rooms, good food and what was very good was the friendly but professional management of the family. Good services, always available to help and the there brothers, their wifes and Pablo and Flora were extremely helpful but also frinedly. It felt home while... More

Although the hotel is expensive, we were totally looked after there, and recommend it to anyone who hasn't been to Khartoum before. Our room contained air conditioning and an en-suite bathroom with hot water! Our hosts at the Acropole hotel, the Greek Pagoulatos family, were so kind and helpful that they gave us advice about travelling to Meroe and Karima,... More

ACROPOLE HOTEL. KHARTOUM. Well located. In the center of the city. A 10-minute walk from the River Nile, and 10 minutes by taxi from the airport. Old building and rough street. Reception on the first floor. Correct friendliness of owners, and minor from employees. In 4 days I used the room 17 (deficient) and 30 (well maintained, comfortable shower), both... More

I stayed in Acropole hotel for a one week business mission. The most important thing to say about it is that it is a family hotel, where you feel like part of a family, and for me is closer from a guest house. I like the family atmosphere, brought by hotel owner's who do always their best for you (from... More

This is the hotel where people who know - choose to stay. Those who want bland 5 star bedrooms and breakfasts - should look elsewhere. The room and bathroom and corridors - are 2 star - not 5. HOWEVER …. The Acropole's owners make you part of their 7 star family - and, without being intrusive - make sure your... More
