#1 of 65 hotels in Thessaloniki
The Modernist combines old-world grace with casual luxury, set in a striking 1920’s heritage building and restored in a minimalist yet sensual style that moves between art deco, mid-century detailing and Danish design. Situated in downtown Thessaloniki, it’s the perfect port of call for constant travelers who know how to live in the moment and are at home wherever they set down their bag. Flying light and often solo, expecting seamless comforts, a bit of local buzz, and highly professional yet completely unpretentious service, they’ll find nothing less than everything they need at The Modernist.

This hotel is beautiful, and our stay was perfect. The organic breakfast was delicious: we loved the fresh OJ and Greek yoghurt (both served in glass jars), loose leaf tea, sourdough and scrambled eggs with feta and chives. Note that Room 605 has a better view of the city from its balcony because it’s higher up, but room 205’s balcony is backed by blossoms in April. We stayed in both, and they were equally wonderful. It’s definitely worth going for the largest size your budget can stretch to because, despite the name, a Large Room is relatively compact. The in-room Bluetooth stereo was a great touch. We wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else in this city.

I visited the hotel last November with my husband for our 20 year anniversary and I have to say that I am really impressed with the new hotels in Thessaloniki. The staff just amazing, the hotel very modern and yet so comfortable and cozy ! The area is just the best, it is exactly where you want to be in the city near to everything. Please try their breakfast as it is fabulous! Thank you guys for making our anniversary so special!

Clean comfortable rooms and very friendly helpful staff. Excellent location right next to the main square of the city. Rooms are small with minimal places to put things and breakfast buffet area also a bit cramped but being city centre we understand that space is at a premium. Pleasant rooftop sitting area for breakfast. Very reasonable price considering it’s central location.

My wife and I stayed for four nights.We arrived early in the morning but our room was made available. The rooms are bright,modern and an ample range of bathroom soap and shampoo. My wife was pleased with the powerful hairdryer which she could plug in beside a large mirror. The Nespresso coffee machine in the room got us of to a good start to the day. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. The room was maintained to a high standard.

My wife and I stayed here with our parents for 4 nights and it was one of the highlights of our trip. The service was the best we have ever experienced. The front desk staff are all very pleasent and accommodating - I can't say enough good things about them. Thanasis and Jiansou went over and beyond to provide us recommendations, help us with a car rental, and make us feel welcome. We are still talking about how amazing the staff are! The hotel is extremely clean and modern. Small space but well designed. Showers have great pressure and are easy to get in/out of. The location is in the heart of city centre. We will definitely be recommending this amazing hotel to our family and friends.
