Hotel Acropolis

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 July 2011

This hotel has been run by Mario and Angela and their daughters for around 40 years. You notice right away they have lots of return customers. Angela is always on her feet personally serving meals in the dining room, and the family eats with you... so you know you are getting a truly local authentic Italian meal. Support small business and give them a try! We go back every year!

My husband and I just returned from a stay here at Hotel Acropolis. The good points about the hotel were its location, its staff, and it suited our basic needs. The rooms are very minimal but very large. We did have a balcony on the street side with a small view of the beach. The bathroom could be updated, as it was also pretty minimal. Everything was very clean and each morning the cleaning lady did a great job sprucing up the room. The airconditioner worked great. The owner was very nice to let us hook our laptop up to his internet in the evenings after things had slowed down. We just had breakfast included, so I cannot comment on the other meals, but the breakfast was adequate. We asked the waitress for fruit and the coffee was excellent. Try the piadine restaurant up the street (away from the beach) for a great snack or meal. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Cattolica if you are looking for a basic hotel.

Had a great holiday here. Good size room Overlooked the road so a wee bit noisy at the weekend but overall quiet and good accommodation. Four of us so didn't have to share a table with anyone else. Prima pasta courses were excellent second choice of meat or fish and good desserts- lots of fruit, good breakfast. Excellent location and near public beach so didnt have to pay for beach if didnt want to. would thoroughly recommend as good basic freindly small hotel

We have just returned from rimini staying at the Acropolis for 7 nights.This is a three star hotel,but is more like a two star.
But it comes down to what you want,if you want to stay in your hotel most of the time go to a 4-5 star hotel.If you want a hotel to use as a place to shower and sleep then this hotel is great and is in a perfect location..
Its a 2 minute walk to the beach,which is excellent.Newsagent and beach shop across the road,chemist and arcade for the kids around the corner,with a cheap supermarket 10 minute walk away.Center of town,where all the action is,is less than 10 minutes away,lovely stroll by the beach front.Shops are great and are good value for money,but stay out of the designer shops unless you are loaded.
We were on half board,the breakfast was great,ham,cheese,meats,cereals,cakes,coissants,jams,rolls,different types of bread,tea,coffee and two types of juices.You have to remember that this is italy and its a continental breakfast,don't expect,toast and a full english.
We had the evening meal,which is a three course meal,and don't forget that the meals are not what you expect over here,so be prepared to try these things.We would go for bread and breakfast next year so we can try the resturants in the evening.We were a party of seven,three were teenagers,one 11 and an infant.They found some of the dishes difficult as it was food they have never tried before,but on the whole the food was excellent.
This hotel was good value for money,fantastic people who run the hotel,very helpful and most speak english.
The hotel and cattolica itself is great,so much we are booking up to go back next year.If you are a family on a budget,then this hotel is worth looking at.

just come back from 2 weeks in cataloica , staying at the acropolis hotel. it was excellent value for money. of course good and bad points.
the bad to start, i had no balcony, no toletries are really provided like in many hotels apart from hand soap. breakfast was a disappointment. no fresh fruit. and is a cold buffet only though this is well stocked. decor is basic in rooms dont expect plush rooms. they are functional and others say here can be noisy at night but have air con (5 euros a day) and keep window shut and you will be fine, no pool just a roof terrace.
now the good points. location is great, a min and your on the promenande to take 5-10min walk into centre.or take a right at bottom and you are in the fishing port within 2 mins and then on to neighbouring resort gabbice mare in 5mns.
noddy train stops just down from hotel ideal for couple of trips. i reccomend gradara. medieval town worth a visit 8euro each for return.
evening meals were of good standard you order your selection the night before from choice of 3 starters and 3 mains then a selection of desserts, plus salad buffet you help yourselves to. dinner is 1/2 7- 1/2 8 only. you can choose lunch instead of dinner at any time if on half board if want to try one of the many restaurants in area. and owners eat in restaurant with you every night.
staff friendly and helpful (they may not look it, but are).
rooms were spacious. i was booked as a single but had a twin room plenty space. and hangers in wadrobe but no hairdryer.
bar in hotel is quiet but cheaply priced and comfortable.

on whole i thought i got a bargain and was more than happy. its a nice resort to stay in. choose a diff hotel if you want pool and that or you pay for beach. there are a couple free beaches but they dont have loungers or shade its you and a towel.

it is very popular with italian holiday makers.
