Perfectly located and very friendly staff. The rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. The breakfast is served on the roof top on a quite atmosphere with sea view and a great buffet for greece. Perfect place for a comfy stay in this city.

We stayed here twice during our recent honeymoon. The service is superb, unintrusive yet helpful. The staff has been a number one highlight. Artemis at the reception desk is simply wonderful and she has made our stay very special. Rooms have some of the best beds in Greece and come with modern fit outs. It's home away from home while...

Dear Georgios A, The Excelsior is built in a historic building, built in the centre of Thessaloniki in 1925. Obviously our rooms can not be as big as a classic large hotel, that is why we advertise as a boutique hotel, with smaller rooms decorated only with the best italian furniture and an artist flair, as well as beautiful marble...

We knew that this boutique hotel was highly rated, and that the location was convenient to restaurants, shopping, the waterfront and Aristoteli Plaza. What we did not know was that the hotel staff was the warmest, friendliest, most helpful and most capable of anywhere we had ever been. We fell in love with them from the first minute Dmitri took...

We always stay at the Excelsior when in town and it is always a very pleasurable stay. The building is historic and it was beautifully renovated. Staff is always friendly, rooms are super clean and the location is very convenient, right next to Aristotelous Square. Breakfast is served on the roof top and has a decent variety of choices.

Top rated hotel with great service! Hotel staff are very friendly and eager to help. Price is reasonable and the rooms are spacious. Highlight is the breakfast with all ingredients being carefully chosen and fresh. There are forms to be filled by customers on their preference to eggs. Even the Juice offered is squeezed from fresh fruits. Excellent quality!

The hotel was very nice. The room had 22 light switches by my count, which I think is the mark of the upper crust. The staff was all very friendly, knew the city well, and spoke excellent English, which is better than me struggling through basic Greek. They also gave us a bottle of wine on the first night, and...
