I stayed at the Excelsior on a short trip to Thessaloniki and was very pleased by the level of service and the facilities. Some rooms are a little odd shaped and may appear more cramped but it is an excellent hotel with a perfect location for long walks, shopping and nightlife. The breakfast was varied and well presented with enough... More

This is a fabulous small hotel, just back from the waterfront in the heart of Thessaloniki's shopping district it is amazingly quiet given its location- which very accessible to all the sites. Has Great rooms but the experience is made by the Fantastic service. Discreet, tailored and helpful. The wonderful staff arranged a car for us to visit Delphi for... More

There was a good selection of food and a very relaxing atmosphere. The service was excellent. The staff was very helpful, polite and professional. I would stay there again based on the quality of...

This Resort is perfectly located in the vibrant centre of Thessaloniki..the 'BE' Bar and Restaurant became one of my favorites, since I visit thessaloniki very often. The staff is so friendly, smiley and young, everyone is kind! The room could be a bit bigger, but everything inside is beautiful. I believe that it is a great choice concerning value for... More

Loved the Excelsior - staff responsive, friendly and helpful, food great, room very comfortable. Just brill. So quiet inside and slept really well - outside very busy and bustly, and very noisy too! Now booked to go to sister hotel in Ouranopolis this spring.

Location, service, amenities....this family-run hotel has it all. I was stunned by the service, from beginning to end. Irene in reservationsemailed me to indicate the hotel only had a queen bed but offered to use 2 sets of bedding to make it seem like 2 beds. She also gave me directions on how to get to the hotel from the... More

This hotel is amazing. I would say top 3 best business travel hotels I have stayed at in the world. A couple of points consolidated that I had to look for on tripadvisor when I was considering this hotel: 1) Parking is EURO 17 per 24 hours. It is valet 2) Wifi connectivity is very good 3) Breakfast buffet is... More

I cannot give it a 5 stars because I would be unfair rating it like other higher level more luxurious hotels, but this is a very nice place. I actually feel bad for not being able to give it a 5 stars. Everything is excellent, including the location, walking distance to typical Greek food restaurants. Bathrobes, sleepers, good quality towels,... More

I stayed with my wife for three days in January and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Excelsior. The hotel is located 200 meters from Aristoteloussquare and 100 meters from the sea. It is an ideal location for people that want to walk in the city center and visit many monuments which are within walking distance. The hotel has been... More
