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

Very homely environment. Very Clean and comfortable rooms. Run by a Greek family and treat their guests as family also. Lunch and dinner needs to be improved, however, what is presently served is ok. Wi-Fi is perfect and free. The printouts and using the desktop is also free of cost. Very helpful in advising on any information that you might... More

I had high expectations of this hotel from the previous reviewers and I have to say that I have not been disappointed.This hotel is a real treasure and I only wish they had sister hotels in all the major African cities I have visited. On my arrival at the airport I was met before passport control and escorted through to... More

The Acropole was extremely comfortable, but even more satisfying was the helpfulness of the owners, three Greek brothers who have been settled in the Sudan for decades and know the place extremely well. They do an excellent free city tour on Fridays, and provide advice as well as transport tips to get to a range of interesting places. And the... More

We crossed Africa from the South to the North, passing by 12 countries.. Nothing can beat the hospitality that we saw in Sudan.. Sudanese people are super friendly and every one of them proves it to you.. If you combine all this with the Greek philoxenia (hospitality) , you get the unique of its kind, Hotel Acropole! Its friendly stuff,... More
