Located in northern Greece, Thessaloniki is a charming port city that’s filled with interesting history. Electra Palace Thessaloniki reflects the magic of this lovely region with an exterior that showcases plenty of Byzantine charm – all set right on the grand expanse of Aristotelous Square. Located between the Thermaic Gulf and Mount Olympus, you can expect stunning views in every direction.
There aren’t too many better places to enjoy these vistas from than Electra Palace Thessaloniki. The obvious highlight is the hotel’s elegant rooftop garden – the perfect spot for an al-fresco breakfast, lunch or dinner. You’ll also find a rooftop pool, where you can enjoy a refreshing dip as you look out across the glittering sea. For some serious relaxation, head to the indoor spa for a sauna session or and indulgent massage treatment. With this kind of pampering, and Mount Olympus in the distance, it’s hard not to feel like a Greek god (or goddess).
The spacious and airy Junior suites offer a traditional vibe, with rich woods, sumptuous furnishings and lovely views of either Aristotelous Square or the Thermaic Gulf. Each suite features a separate living area and a private balcony. Modern amenities are incorporated throughout, including Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV with satellite channels.
Enjoy breakfast with a view at Orizontes Roof Garden, boasting a panorama that takes in Mount Olympus, the sea, the city’s walls and the Sheikh’s Sou Forest. Open all day, from 6:30am until well past midnight, this is the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Elsewhere, you’ll find Excelsior Bar, a sophisticated space featuring décor inspired by the aristocratic air of British clubhouses, with wood paneling, an open fireplace and chesterfield sofas.
Located right on the city’s main square, Electra Palace Thessaloniki is conveniently within reach of the local attractions, such as Elfetherias Square, the Thermaic Gulf and the White Tower. The airport is about 9 miles away, while the port is just 550 yards from the hotel. Thessaloniki itself is known for its Byzantine architecture and history, as well as an excellent culinary scene and vibrant nightlife.
How to Get There
so beautifully situated in Thessaloniki, we would never book anywhere else.
The rooftop restaurant is truly lovely.
The Included breakfast at the rooftop restaurant with its views and delicious and varied menu is truly a great start to the day.
A classic hotel with fantastic views, especially if you opt for a sea view balcony room. Our room was clean and nicely decorated and the sofa bed for our young son was comfortable. The roof garden breakfast was very good each morning and the atmosphere was uplifting with amazing views and polite staff. Having evening drinks on the roof garden was also a very enjoyable experience. A great place to relax. Although there were not many children staying at the hotel, we were made to feel welcome and our son enjoyed swimming in the rooftop pool and the spa's indoor pool. Overall, our stay in Thessaloniki was made all the more enjoyable because of our positive experience staying at this hotel.
Excellent location, great place, breathtaking view... but what can you do with all that if the staff is unpleasant?! Especially at the roof top.. the manager was unfriendly and not up to the standards of a five star hotel.
