TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We stayed at this hotel in October 2017. The location has breathtaking views of the town of Nafplion and the harbor. The staff was outstanding, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very generous with a large variety of items, including fresh-squeezed orange juice and fresh fruit. The two restaurants on site had excellent selections. Live music was available on the weekends in their main restaurant. The hotel could use some updating, especially in the complicated system of turning on the lights and opening/closing the draperies. Also, because of its location, high on a Archeological area, it is necessary to climb quite a few steps to get from one area to another. It is a good idea to have a car to reach the town below, and get around Nafplion. A garage is available on the premises.

At the top of the Acronafplia, this gorgeous hotel has a commanding view of the City of Nafplion and the harbor area, looking out at the Bourtzi fortress. We stayed in one of the upgraded rooms, at one end of the hotel complex. The room was spacious, with a balcony with a view over the city and across the bay. The room was very well outfitted, everything controlled by remote control panels, including curtains. The area in which the room was located had a beautiful, vanishing edge, semi-private pool, shared by the occupants of the rooms in this section of the hotel. As you swim up to the vanishing edge, you are directly looking down on Syntagma Square and the city around it – spectacular! In the main part of the hotel, there is a second pool, quite beautiful itself. An excellent buffet breakfast is served overlooking the pool. An elevator takes you down to the city, although not directly to the main street level, an additional 80 – 90 steps required to get all the way down. Overall, an excellent choice when you visit this truly beautiful city. We had a few issues getting here though. We booked through Expedia. I warn anyone who has booked on Expedia to disregard the location of the hotel provided by Expedia. The location is in no way related to the hotel. It will lead you to a street at city level which has no hotels on it. And it will try to take you down some pedestrian ways! I knew that the hotel was on the Acronafplia and couldn’t understand where Expedia was trying to take us. I finally went into Google maps and located the hotel directly. So we finally started up the road to the Acronafplia and we come to a fork in the road. The GPS was not overly helpful at this juncture, and where there should have been a sign indicating “Turn right for Nafplia Palace Hotel”, there was nothing. We of course initially took the left fork but quickly realized we were wrong, turned around, and went down a steep drive to the hotel. As we drove up, there was a sign warning that no vehicles were allowed in front of the lobby. There was a parking garage to the left, but it was apparently a good walk from the garage to the lobby to bring luggage in (we subsequently determined that there was an elevator in the garage which made bringing luggage in a bit less daunting), and I was uncertain what to do. I parked the car above the main entrance and walked down to the lobby. Upon entering, there was no one at the desk. I waited a minute, with no one coming to assist me. I then started to call out “Hello” and walked a bit and saw a woman in an office, sitting at a computer with her back toward me. I said “Hello” again, and she half-turned, and curtly said, “Hold on a minute!” I was somewhat taken aback, given the apparent high level of this hotel. These issues aside, I would recommend this hotel for its level of sophistication, spectacular views, and relative ease of access to this gorgeous city and all it has to offer.

This Greek Treasure sits within the grounds of the Akronaflia Fortress and is approached via the cobbled street leading up from the town and into the guests garage, don't panic if you think you are in the middle of a castle, you are! The setting is idillic and apart from totally the wrong choice of colour for the carpets throughout the hotel, they show every little mark unfortunately, this "Old Lady" still has bags of character. The view from the terrace is to die for and as once said this "Bond villains lair" is very well appointed as well as being grand and spacious. The rooms are large and have thier period charm, the food is excellent and plentiful, well presented and expertly cooked, the staff will leave you wanting for nothing. Reception, porters, bar-staff and restaurant staff alike, they are all warm and welcoming and happy to assist. In Petros the hotel has a diamond and the future of Greece is in good hands.

I thought I traveled back in time, in the seventies to be more accurate. Some 40 years ago this hotel would have been THE place to stay. Today, it’s just another hotel. Needs renovation asap! Breakfast is quite good. The view is breathtaking and mesmerizing. There is no wi-fi!!! Guys, it’s the 2017!!!

To echo other reviews, this hotel must have been something back in its prime. Needs a little TLC and it would be something special again. The breakfast is fine: it's nothing special, but there are a variety of options. My two main gripes are the lack of wifi accessibility, even in the lobby, and that the staff serviced our room multiple times even though we had do not disturb showing.
