“Great value and very friendly”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Basic apartments at an affordable price situated within easy walking distance of the beach and the town center. The real gems of this place are the staff. From the manager, the waitress, through to the night porter, all are very friendly and helpful. Arrived at 3:00 am and the following day we determined we needed a room that was a little quieter. This was arranged within the hour. For two people the apartments provide plenty of space and you can cook or make use of the restaurant at the apartments, or the many restaurants in town. The tavern area gives the place a real local flavor.
The staff here give the place a family feeling and present a typical picture of the very best of Greek hospitality.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter and cooler in the hot summer months

Really nice place to stay central for everything and great service from Miros, Cara and Maria.
A little bit noisy as at the front of a busy road but all in all a good place to stay.
5 minutes from the beach and all the bars and restaurants.

Thanks

This is my first review on TA and I feel that the Acropolis Apartments merit a 5 for value alone. I have just returned from a week there having gone as a single person booking a couple of days prior to departure. I got an incredible deal via Travel Republic of £84.00 for the week - amazing value - I'm sure will not be as cheap in the high season !

As most people comment, Miros and the team are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. For example I changed my phone settings into Greek by accident after arrival and Miros helped me revert ! They always try to coax some Greek out of you but their English is excellent. Maria who works there is really great too, always time to chat and see what you are up to.

Again as everyone comments, the location for the apartments is excellent. You are only a few minutes walk away from the harbour front, beach and main road shops. I can't think of a better place as a base for exploring the resort. Two highly rated restaurants (Mythos and Vegara) are on the doorstop, two cashpoints within 30 seconds, a supermarket next door (bottle of 2L water for €0.4)and a patisserie across the road which sells mammoth cream cakes for 2 euros :)

The apartments themselves are very large, mine had a double bed (could even have been bigger) in the main bedroom and a single bed in the kitchenette/lounge area. I didn't lift a finger food wise in the apartment but it looked decently equipped with cutlery/crockery etc with a two hob cooker. The bathroom was a decent size too. There is plenty of storage/hanging places, two sofas(these may well have been sofa beds I didn't check), tables etc so absolutely no problem with what was in there.

My only comment was that I wouldn't say mine was recently refurbed, it looked a little tired. New floor tile grouting and bathroom tile grouting/sealing would really lift the apartment in my opinion. The cold tap on the bathroom mixer was split which would benefit from repairing. Also my shower head was faulty, this was reported and fixed the following morning so credit there. There were two small balconies either side but there wasn't really anything to see from them so didn't really use them. There was also a portable TV in the lounge, couldn't find a remote or tune it so that really needn't be there.

Full marks for cleanliness, the maids were in seemingly almost daily cleaning, tidying and emptying the toilet paper bin. I think I got at least three towel changes also which is more than the two advertised.

The pool area is lovely, the pool is simply pristine and a decent size with plenty of loungers. I used it a few days and there was never more than six people around the pool at one time so plenty of room. Only criticism is that both parasol holders had broken stoppers so you couldn't fill them with water so in effect they were next to useless.

The apartments have their own bar and café (with Wi-Fi) open to the public. It's actually a pleasant place to congregate and chat and fine for a coffee or large beer (both €2). Maria would serve peanuts with the beer which was a nice touch. They served snacks also which I didn't get round to trying.

All in all very pleased and would not hesitate to recommend staying here.

Room Tip: This isn't really a place for great views, some apartments overlook the pool area if that's...

The Best Visit to Hersonissos we had, Miros and the Staff Were Genuinely Fantastic People to be around, always happy to talk to you and share some time chatting , they made the holiday even better with good advice on places and knowledge. The rooms are spacious and cleaned 7 days a week with fresh towels.
The Bar area is modern with all new internet café, pool table and ps3 for kids.
We would definitely go back as they are creating more Superior rooms for guests and they are very well equipped.
So Thank you Miros from Jamie (Dimitris) and Jan.

Room Tip: Superior and poolside balcony are excellent.

The Acropolis Apartments, a great find for us. Myros & Vicki looked after us so well it really made our holiday. Friendly, helpful & sincere staff. The apartment was recently refurbished to a high standard, very spacious and kept spotlessly clean. There are more than adequate facilities with a very friendly café bar and lovely quiet pool area. Set in a good central location within easy walking distance to the beach, shops & restaurants. We would highly recommend these apartments.

We stayed for 2 weeks in May. And We had an excellent time, and would certainly go again. Miros and his team do a fantastic job!! The location was ideal, with a first class bus service just at the end of the road. We also found some really nice bays near by. The local area is full of restaurants and bars. So overhaul very good!!

Just come back from Hersonnissos again, the welcome was worth going for, it feels like visiting old friends, for someone who dosn't like walking for hours this is perfect being not too far from shops and not too far from the beach, thank you Myros and Vicky for a wonderfull stay.
