I needed a hotel on short notice and arrived during the Agrotika fair. Hotel rooms in Thessaloniki were filled, and I had a choice of this hotel, Perea beach hotels or a 100 euro or 500 euro hotel in the city.
I stayed in the old wing, where I was told two people were there, very quiet (I had 10 hours of jet lag and 24 hours of travel to deal with). There was no hot water at 10:30 pm for a shower. At 1:30 am a couple arrived and were put in the staff quarters right next to me. I asked the front desk to call the people to please speak quieter which they did. And I had hot water for a shower at 2 am.
The room stunk of smoke thanks to previous occupants and the newcomers and the two nights passed. Breakfast is not great and you must go early to get warm food. The cold eggs and bacon are hard to swallow (why they don't have proper heaters under the food or ensure they stay lit and food hot is a good question).
I paid 45 euro per night for a single room with breakfast. For the fair time this was a good deal. I booked three days before I arrived.
Probably it would have been ok if they hadn't rented out the workers' room to guests especially smokers and loud late night people. After working with people at the fair all day dealing with loud people at 1:30 am is a challenge even without jet lag.
The hotel is old, and reminds me of the good old days of drachma Greece where you paid a low price and don't expect alot including hot water on demand, a warm room in winter, a quiet room or a smoke free room.
The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. Same with the manager.
There were some creepy guys hanging around the hotel lobby, smoking, watching t.v. and this might be a bit disconcerting for some travellers. When I went to the lobby at 1:30 am they were still hanging around, smoking.
