“Good hotel and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Hotel Emporikon is very good choice for everyone who wants good location.The hotel is locate on Egnatia street and is 5 min.from Aristotelous Square.We stayed 3 nights for Easter and we are very satisfied from service.I can say only one negative thing-triple room is too small.

Stayed April 2015, traveled with friends

Overall, it is a good place, clean and quiet. You get a very nice hotel in the very center of the city for little money, so small flaws can be forgiven. The flaws are for example very small bathrooms, the shower was broken, so it was hard to set the water temperature, but not impossible. The most important thing is that it is clean, the staff is friendly, and it is very peaceful. There was written that there is a parking in front of the hotel, but there are only two or three spots, and they were taken all the time, so we had to find some other place to park. If you are looking for a modest, clean, friendly place in the very center of the city, this is a right place for you, but do not expect any luxury.

Hotel Emporikon it's an amazing and such an awesome place to stay. The people are real nice, the ambient, and the rooms are just comfortable, nice and super clean. Warm in winter, breakfast very tasty and stuff is super helpful and friendly. Internet it's super fast and the TV has satelite with many channels. We were on New Years Eve and New Years Days at Thessaloniki and stayed at this beautiful hotel and definitely will be coming back at Emporikon Hotel next when will go to Thessaloniki.

Kind staff. The ladies behind the reception desk were always helpful. Great location - only few minutes to Aristotel Square.The area around the hotel is full with restaurants, bars and different kind of shops.

But room was small and not so clean, especially the bathroom.

If you travel to Thessaloniki and you dont want to spend money for buses or taxis, than its fine to stay in Emporikon

I managed to stay there only for one night. We knew the building was old and the rooms were outdated, but the filth was unbearable!!! The carpets had all sorts of stains on them, the room stank and the bathroom was one of the filthiest I have ever seen in my life! There was mould and dirt everywhere on the tiles and the sink. I am not sure if anyone checks what the cleaning ladies are doing in the rooms. Also, as the room was on the first floor, there was a lot of noise from the breakfast area. We moved to another hotel nearby the next morning.
The staff was friendly and the location is very near to the center.

Room Tip: Stay away from this hotel!

Good location, 5 min walking distance to Aristotel Square or downtown. The girl from the reception was very nice and helped us with a few tourist information and guidance.

Breakfast is not worth the money.
Room doesn't look like in the pictures, it's smaller.

The Emporikon says in it's brochure:
"Emporikon Hotel with a historic tradition of 40 years was recently renovated and it consists of 33 rooms fully equipped with television, aircondition tele-phone, free wi-fi and bathroom that offer a pleasant stay with all the modern conforts to every visitor."
Recently, it appears, was sometime 20 years ago. The room walls are decorated in mosquito remains, I added to these, and the bathroom is so pokey that you can barely move. The floor is constantly wet, since the shower curtain stops at knee height and manoeuvering onto and off the toilet seat is an adventure in itself.
The breakfast was mostly bad, except for the yoghurt and all the staff were awful, except for the nice cleaning lady and the girl on night reception (unfortunately I don't have her name), who was extremely helpful and nice and was the only reason why the stay was bearable (we left a day early anyway, even though it was prepaid).
Soooo.... if you are only staying in one place in Thessaloniki and not travelling around Greece on a budget, then avoid, avoid, avoid.
