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

Great hotel

This is an extremely well run boutique hotel. It has a great location situated on a road between the main shopping road and the sea front promenade. It is in a fairly recently modernised and refurbished classical building with its own pavement cafe. The bedrooms and bathrooms are not large but they are very comfortable and tastefully furnished in contemporary style. Breakfasts are good with both buffet and waitress service for hot food. The orange juice must be pressed fresh each day because it is the best we have ever had after many years of travel. The staff were incredibly pleasant, welcoming and couldn't do enough to help. Particular mention of Georgina and Kostantinos on reception. They found us a very reasonable car rental company for our day outings to the Halkidiki peninsulars. The car was brought to the hotel, valet parked overnight and collected on the last day.

Perfect hotel
