“Like going back in time (not in a good way)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

We were reluctantly relocated to this hotel because our hotel of choice Zaliki Boutique had overbooked and offloaded us to here. The only good thing was the staff who were helpful and accommodating. The rooms at the front of the hotel overlook a very busy main road with 24/7 heavy traffic and we asked to move to quieter rooms at the back. These were tiny and gloomy with drab fittings and overlooking derelict buildings.
The breakfast room was gloomy and the buffet quite poor. This hotel is like non star hotels I used to stay in 30 years ago.

Location is great, nearby everything: shops, markets, sea, musea ecc. Very good service, nice people. Nice breakfast, possible until 11.00!! Airport service if you like.
We had a super stay and will return!

Room Tip: Streetsite can be very noisy. Higher floors have less noise from the street.

The hotel is situated on waking distance from sea front and Aristoteles squire. Parking is near by, which for center of Thessaloniki is +. There is free WiFi. The breakfast could be better - the lack of fresh vegetables in May, in Greece is -.

Room Tip: Rooms looking to main street are noisy even when all windows are closed.

El Greco Hotel is the best hotel for someone who need to make week holiday in the summer.
I don't know about other months, but I can recommend it FOR SURE, If you visit Thessaloniki.
I have been there in June 2012, it was my first time in Thessaloniki, and this hotel made my holiday seem like dream. I went with 2 friends, we had a really nice week there, as we stayed for 4 days! CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, GREAT BREAKFAST, AIR CONDITION, TELEVISION, TELEPHONE, WIFI ACCESS, in the city center, where we were able to buy tickets from the opposite kiosk and take the bus next to it. AND I also recommend walking to go down to the sea side. You can pass from the ''Ladadika area'', you can have a nice walk near the sea, enjoy the White Tower, and come back to drink or eat anything. Very nice hotel to enjoy your stay. Next to the hotel, there are kiosks, also Starbucks Coffee, mini market, and generally you can do your shopping easily!!! and have a rest in the midday.
The staff gives immediately info for anything in the city and they speak English. Additionally you can have WIFI free of charge in your room! It isn't a noisy hotel, is the best choice !!! We were standing on the balcony and we were watching the opposite hotels, feeling that they would fall down, they seemed no renovated! I were so happy that I found El Greco. If I go again to Thessaloniki, I will book my room there AGAIN for sure!

Room Tip: Select balcony room, it is nice, and not noisy. You can also put air condition If you go in summer.
