“OK”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2008

A OK hotel. Biggest advantage is its location. Opposite to the railway station and walkable distance from downtown. (15-20 minutes)

Guy at reception was friendly, provided directions. Breakfast is simple but good. However rooms looked a bit outdated. Bathrooms need refurbishing.

Biggest issue was, the person in reception on last day do not know how to charge my credit card. After 30 minutes of wasting time, in fear of missing flight, I had to get in cash and pay him.

Free internet is a good service.

Like BornAgainChristian wrote nearby are clubs and sex workers but still are is OK. Next to Hotel is good parking area (10€/night) and only walking distance to downtown.
Room was clean but in bathroom it was easy to see that it had met some destructive guests.
Reception was friendly and helpful but we saw nobody at breakfast room and run out of juice.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2007

The Hotel Rex is just a block from the Thessalonica train station and easily accessable. We were please with everything although we had our doubts when we arrived. A Sex Shop and strip club sit next door (they were apparently closed--at least this time of the year???) We wondered if the hotel would be a place with "hourly rates" from the business next door but that did not seem to be the case. (We are Christians and had strong concerns about this!) We had a room on the top 6th floor and were please with it. It had a new bathroom and the room was clean. The buffet breakfast was adequate with a good choice of cereal and milk, yogurt and fruit, Feta cheese, olives (!!!-only in Greece, huh?!!!), Melba toast, bread rolls, sliced luncheon meat, sliced cheese, and fresh apples. Coffee, juice (possibly Tang type drink?), and tea were available. The staff were professional and helpful when needed. My only complaint is that there were guest toiletries available in the bathroom but they had been used. Maybe this is a Greek thing? I would prefer new, unopened! We asked for new toiletries. I don't think the staff understood this word so we said, "like shampoo" and they brought us extra shampoo but none of the others were replaced.

  • Liked — Price and location
  • Disliked — Toiletries were not replaced after the last guest had used them.
