Experience

Delphi is a city literally steeped in mythology. Once called “the center of the world” and the home of the famous Oracle of Delphi, this place now houses the remains of ancient Greek monuments. The Acropole Delphi Hotel is a family-run hotel which embodies the Delphic idea of friendship, brotherhood, and coexistence.

With great reviews and a central location, I looked forward to making Acropole Delphi Hotel my home for a night.

Coming all the way from Sparta, I arrived late and was quite exhausted from the day’s journey. Fortunately the hotel was easy to find from the main street. The reception was waiting for me and had my room ready. After a quick check-in, I went up to the room.

I stayed in a Single Room with a private balcony. The room had high ceilings clad in wood bringing out a warmth that complimented the rich yellow and dark clay color palette, especially in the light of the setting sun. Next to the bed is a small desk with coffee making facilities.

The clean bathroom offers a fresh color scheme with a sink, shower, toilet in simple finishes. The highlight of the room is the balcony with a small table, two chairs and an incredible view.

Each of the 42 rooms at the Acropole Delphi Hotel provides modern amenities such as satellite TV, wireless internet, mini bar and central heating. They also have a Family Suite which connects two rooms. The loft-ceilings make the room quaint and cozy but the real attraction is the view. The hotel overlooks the Gorge of Delphi, the Corinthian Gulf and even the olive groves of Itea which makes every sunrise and sunset one you’ll never forget.

After witnessing the sunset, I had an early night in preparation for the next day.

In the morning I participated in the breakfast buffet served in the main restaurant. The wonderful Greek breakfast included specialities like Greek yogurt, to give guests the energy they need for a full day of sightseeing. In the evenings the Acropole Hotel Bar offers a quiet place to relax over a drink. The hotel has been recently renovated but still preserved its charming traditional Greek décor.

After breakfast, I headed out for sightseeing. A short walk away were the main attractions in Delphi such as the famous archaeological site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but also some lesser known sites as well. The House of Sikelianos is the home of the famous poet Angelos Sikelianos which has been converted into a museum filled with his personal items. Or Amfissa, the capital of prefecture Fokida which dates back to 600 BC and is the site of an ancient monastery.

Back at the hotel, I checked out and thanked my graceful hosts. The staff were more than welcoming and happy to share the highlights that this little town had to offer.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Delphi. The Acropole Delphi Hotel offers a home-like stay with warm service and some of the best views in the town!
