Greek architect Tasos Zeppos is behind the envelope-pushing design of the 212-room Met Hotel in the recently developed harbor area of Thessaloniki. The avant-garde look starts in the lobby, with black painted walls adorned with top-shelf art, and continues to the Long Bar, which is anchored by a 22-carat gold-plated wall. Solid Wenge wood floors in the guestrooms set off marble bathrooms and streamlined furniture from Minotti and Armani Casa, while the chic Sky Bar offers 360-degree views over the city. Dine on Pan-Asian dishes from chef Oliver Peyton at the stylish, low-lit CHAN restaurant, and indulge in hydrotherapy rituals at the M’ Spa, which offers urban stress-reducing lomilomi and hot stone massages.
In the Area
A fixture in Thessaloniki, Mylos is a hybrid live music venue and gallery that’s a perennial favorite with the city’s club kids and culture vultures. See a show, hit a club or settle into the ouzeri, which serves more than 30 kinds of mezedes. Church lovers will be in seventh heaven, as the hood is close to several world-class places of worship, including the 11th-century Byzantine beauty, the Church of Panagia Chalkeon, the magnificent Church of Saint Demetrius (which includes the crypt of Thessaloniki’s patron saint), and the Agia Sofia, one of the city’s oldest standing churches. Refuel with heart-starting coffee and baklava at the legendary 1908 coffee shop Hatzis.
How to Get There
High level professionalisms in all aspects!
Good reflects whenever we ask something. Food and beverage were great and very tasteful with an amazing variety. Last but not least the hotel architecture and design is amazing.
Excellent and hospitable environment! Our room was clean and very comfortable for two! We visited the spa where we were made feel relaxed!! I highly recommend this hotel without any doubt, spending time either for work or leisure!
One of the top hotels in Thessaloniki, Excellent staff, if you have any problem see Mrs. Argeros, the executive assistant to the general manager, she can resolve almost any issue. The rooms are fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel.
First of all, i stayed here only because this was the only Marriott property(also attached to DESIGN hotels chain) in Saloniki and I was on a tight pressure to hit my yearly Nights goal to maintain my status. If not i would not have chose this place for multiple negatives called out below But despite that it is a sweet hotel, with friendly staff but a bit on the OVER PRICED side given what you get for the higher price you pay!
LOCATION: The biggest downside as it was a taxi ride away from most points of interest (unless you are ok with walking a few kilometers all the time) The problem was every time they hailed a cab we had to pay a 2 EUR surcharge! They do have a free shuttle to the city center, but that runs only every hour.
DINE + DRINK: Have a lobby level bar and a seperate restaurant for breakfast both of which i didnt try so cant comment.
ROOM: We stayed in 204, so this review is based on that; VIEW: OK view of the port/dockyard along with the Ships ; SIZE: Very spacious room; AIR-CON: Big bummer as we couldn't control the temperature and the room was quite hot and we had to leave the balcony door open all night and put up with the traffic noise as a result of that!; BED: Comfortable bed that played the expected part to put me to sleep; BATHROOM: Stand in shower; TOILETRIES:Good cosmetics from MOLTON BROWN brand.
FACILITIES: Compact Gym with a basic range of weights and Cardio machines from TECHNOGYM. Was good enough for a quick workout. INdoor HEATED POol feels more like a adults only lounge pool with a lounge lighting and feel.
SERVICE: Friendly staff that took care of all my needs with a smile and made us feel pampered and well taken care of. Special Shout out to the front desk staff for accommodating the late checkout request
HOW WIRED YOU WILL BE: Free high speed Wi-Fi that works well all over the property. Big Plasma TV screen dishing out dozens of channels spanning sports, news, music, movies and a wide variety of entertainment . Unfortunately ENGLISH channels were restricted to only a couple of boring News channels! Big downer!
Very nice and calm Hotel. Unique design and friendly staff.
Quiet and very clean room.
One of the best experiences in Hotels from the Reservations department until the check out.
Surely will come again.
