Flaunting its fabulous good looks following a recent mega makeover, this landmark eight-storey hotel has long been one of the swankiest addresses in Greece’s second city of Thessaloniki. Opened in 1972, it has all the markings of a five-star stay; think Aegean Sea-facing location, impressive level of service, classic-contemporary design style, and reliably good facilities.
Each of the soundproofed guest rooms and suites promise elegant décor with a modish kick; think jewelled colour tones, carpeted flooring, rich drapes, and lavish soft furnishings. You can also look forward to comfortable beds, marble-clad bathrooms and plenty mod-cons for a fuss-free sojourn.
Elsewhere, you’ll find a well-sized fitness centre, lovely outdoor pool, and signature buffet restaurant for Mediterranean cuisine paired with fine wines. There’s also an additional dining spot for Italian dishes, signature cocktails and DJ performances on selected nights, and a relaxed bar for post-sightseeing snacks, made-to-order cocktails and mandatory sundowners.
How to Get There
We decided to stay here last minute secondary to problems with an apartment we booked. I love Thessaloniki and I know that this hotel has great reputation. We were two families and requested three rooms. The service was great and they helped us: we had three rooms with sea view. It is amazing to sit on the balcony and Watts all the action on the promenade. Their breakfast was amazing and the variety of food as well as quality was exceptional.
We will return.
Beautiful view from the balcony, lovely swimming pool excellent breakfast ... Lovely staff, valet parking, great location, easy to walk everywhere. what else can I say ? I would go back there again and again.
The Makedonia Palace is a nice hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious enough but nothing special. The common areas are very nice with an open feeling with no clear cut distinction between inside and out. The restaurant is very good and there's also a beautiful outdoors pool.
The hotel is located right on the waterfront so it's most pleasant to sit on the terrace with a drink and watch people stroll by leisurely as the sun goes down. The hotel is located just south of the center of the city. It's rather quiet but there are good restaurants within walking distance.
