The Excelsior is centrally located in Thessaloniki, surrounded by the most elegant restaurants and cafes; few meters away from the main shopping center and the beautiful Aristotelous Square. The Reception staff was friendly; very welcoming with a great smile. The Excelsior Suite was superb, spacious, very clean, and fully equipped. The sleeping quality was excellent; air-condition was smooth. The bathrooms... More

I haven't a bad word to say about this hotel. We arrived tired thanks to Turkish Airlines cancelling our flight from Istanbul to Thessaloniki resulting in some 9 hours at Istanbul airport. From the moment we crossed the threshold, we knew we were in an oasis. The welcome was sincere and friendly, the check-in ultra speedy. The concierge was amazing,... More

The little things that matter make this hotel a must stay and the cafe restaurant downstairs called 'Be' is one of the best kitchens in the world! Good location, excellent rooms, professional staff and very accommodating. Best city boutique hotel i have stayed at in the world.

We love boutique hotels because typically each room is different and the “feel” is more intimate and individualized. The Excelsior’s staff was very friendly, attentive and accommodating. The rooms were fairly spacious by Greek standards and our room included a nice private balcony. We could see a portion of the Aegean See from the balcony but your main view was... More

The hotel is very central so perfect for exploring Thessaloniki. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The room was clean and very comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Any hotel in the centre of a city will have some noise at night but the air conditioning was so quiet and unobtrusive that we closed the windows and left it on... More

Possibly one of the best boutique hotels I have been! Situated in the city's most central part in a reconstructed old building, Excelsior offers spotless service, designer and surprisingly, for it size, spacious rooms topped by a delicious breakfast served on the roof terrace. Excellent location for shopping and going out! The hotel is well isolated for those seeking some... More

We went to this hotel because of Trip Advisor's recommendations. It certainly is a luxury hotel if you're not sensitive to noise but.... We are, so when we booked, we asked for a quiet room, not realising that the hotel was in such a touristy part of town. We were given a room on the top floor looking out on... More

Though this was my 5th visit to Thessaloniki I had never stayed here before, a fact I regretted the minute I entered my foot in the lobby. The hotel dates back to 1924 but details like the old/new elevator position, the shape of balconies and façade, emanate classic charm even after the recent renovation. Our room, lobby and breakfast area... More

Stayed at the hotel for one night having spent 10 days at their sister hotel Eagle Palace. Had a junior suite which was two fantastic adjoining rooms. Stunning luxury rooms with fantastic bathrooms were a big surprise. This is definitely a small luxury (5 star) boutique hotel at very reasonable rates.

We feel so fortunate to have come across this place. What a warm welcome to such a beautiful city. The warm vibes were felt the minute we walked through the door and were greeted with the smiling faces of Kostantinos and Nicos and continued through with the spoiling treats we received in our fantastic room overlooking the city centre. Clean,... More
