This is a nice hotel I agree with most reviews. Great staff, nice breakfast, great location. At the same time, I am not sure I will come back. please be minded: Not all rooms are the same. Rooms that are street facing are both a plus and a minus: overlooking the action, but noisy Some rooms have only a small shower. Other rooms, that are not street facing, are dark, but comfortable. Service is great, staff is friendly. Bed is good Shower is not great Amenities are good A/C system is good Facilities are modern

Great hotel right in the heart of Thessaloniki. Stayed in a junior suite on the 4th floor with an incredible balcony view of all the action, so much so we felt compelled to enjoy the complimentary bottle of wine and watch all the comings and goings. Perhaps a little noisy for the lightest of sleepers but I'd say no issues for most people like us with double glazed windows all round. Room was spacious and comfortable, breakfast tasty with a variety of options. Staff v friendly. Perfect place to stay for a Thessaloniki weekend break and all the Covid controls and precautions in place. Look forward to visiting again in future.

Stayed with a few days with my partner at what I would consider the best hotels that we have ever visited. The staff are incredibly friendly, professional and warm and are always on hand to deal with any queries and issues. Our room was spotless, the bed was one of the most comfortable beds that I’ve ever slept on. Our room came with all of the modern amenities that you would expect with a 5* hotel and even had a Nespresso machine which I thought was a nice extra. Our room had two balconies which had a lovely view of the city, the only downside is that we could hear some noise from the outside a night which could be a problem if you’re a light sleeper. The breakfast service was exceptional, we had the chance to eat in the restaurant and have room service and both times we had a fantastic meal - they even catered to us being vegetarian which I thought was very thoughtful. Overall, this has been one of the best hotel experiences that we’ve had and we will 100% return to the Excelsior on our next visit to Thessaloniki.
