This is a very nice boutique hotel right in the heart of Thessaloniki. Great rooms, excellent service, a complimentary welcome drink at the bar, good location, great breakfast buffet. Book a bit ahead and the´ll give you excellent prices. Very well done, will go again to this hotel.

Stayed in the 31/10/13, having booked two rooms and could not have asked for more. Very well furnished rooms and staff that were very helpful. The hotel is centrally located and able to walk to most sights. Relatives that visited did comment that it was one of the best hotels in thessaloniki. Breakfast at rooftop level was excellent and fuelled us for a long day of sight seeing and shopping. Staying back on the 5/11/13 and looking forward to it.

The Excelsior has remarkably helpful and efficient staff and I imagine this is partly why it does so well in reviews. The bedrooms (beds are wonderfully comfortable) and bathrooms are sleek and modern and the double glazing means that you get a quiet night even if your room is overlooking one of the busiest junctions in the city. Breakfast was abundant and the staff on duty very attentive.

I went to thessaloniki for just a night. I found the day before a room in the hotel in a price i didn't expect for a five star hotel. The hotel is located in the heart of thessaloniki with so many options around. The staff was so kind and helpful. The room and the breakfast was at the same high level. Unfortunately, I couldn't spend more days there.

I do not agree with the raving reviews. Yes, it is a very stylish hotel; yes, the location is excellent; and yes, it is interesting and highly modern. However, the (bath)rooms are small, the walls very thin (I was woken up in the morning by the TV of my neighbour, and it really wasn´t that loud) and the lobby is almost non-existent. So, if you don´t mind getting up when your neigbour does, go ahead and book for the hotel has indeed a lot going for it. But I prefer thicker walls and more space.

I spent a couple of nights last July in Excelsior Hotel, Thessaloniki, with a group of freinds. A warm welcome, beautiful great rooms, great location, and great food and beverage are the I.D. of the hotel. But the real treasure of the hotel is the staff.
Few weeks before arrival, I called the reception and ask for some help in buying tickets for a concert in the city of Thessaloniki. The receptionist bought us the tickets in advance after visiting few times in a public counter and upon arrival, she gave me the tickets with a big smile.
Thank you Chrysa !
The rest of the staff are very polite and skilled, make you want to visit again.
After visiting Thessaloniki for at least 5 times, this is definately the best hotel in the city.

The best location in Thessaloniki.
This small boutique hotel is in the city center but quiet so you are not disturbed by city noise.
Walk to the waterfront which is a block away and the restaurant district which is about a ten minute walk.
The rooms, we were upgraded to a junior suite, are clean and modern.
The staff wonderful and always friendly.
Take advantage of the roof top breakfast, it was delicious and plentiful
