What To Know

  • This is a luxurious city hotel, great for a short stay to explore Thessaloniki, but not for a longer holiday
  • Good for business travelers and grown-up couples, but not so perfect for families
  • The Excelsior’s restaurant and bars are adequate, but there’s a much bigger choice of places to eat and drink just a few steps from the door
  • No pool, and the nearest beach is miles away, but Elemis spa treatments help to compensate
  • Nearby Plateia Aristotelous (Aristotle Square) is occasionally the scene of noisy rallies by opponents of the Greek government’s economic austerity measures

How to Get There

Excelsior Hotel
10 Komninon St. & 23 Mitropoleos Av.
Thessaloniki, 546 24 Greece


Probably one of the nicest hotels in Thessaloniki

Not really a 5 star. They are trying hard to be a four. If you think the Four Seasons defines a five star, this is not it. The staff at the front desk is super. The room is fine. The bathroom is a little odd. The commode and sink are on one side of the entryway and the shower is on the other. The shower was a combination rainfall and handheld.

This is a smaller boutique hotel and was designed by a French person.

They didn’t replenish the towels, coffee pods and water unless I pointed it out. There isn’t much space to put your things in the bathroom or shower areas.

They put a sweet for you in the room at night with a newsletter, but they don’t do turndown service.
The location is great. It is in central Thessaloniki a block from the Boardwalk.

They will park you car for 25 Euros a day.

Remarkable Boutique Hotel

This is a gem of a place. Location puts you right in the heart of beautiful and cosmopolitan Thesaloniki. Everything is walking distance. When you are a guest at Excelcier, however, each day you step into your hotel it is as though you have arrived back to you ELEGANT and exquisitely appointed home. The accommodations are exceptional. All staff is receptive and responsive to your every need. Can't wait to return to this slice of heaven next trip.


Visited Thessaloniki for a christening - spent 3 very relaxing days and hotel helped with this. Clean, friendly staff, excellent breakfast perfect location. Will definitely visit again. See you soon. !
