Reviewed May 26, 2014

A friend and I stayed here for a few nights because we liked how close the hotel was to the Agios Demetrios and some of the other major sites in central Thessaloniki (and also because the price we got via a certain internet travel discounter website was pretty good, too.) Although the hotel was quite hard to find at first, we were ultimately glad that we did manage to do so! The room was a bit small but otherwise quite comfortable (the in-room AC was a big plus), and the staff were very friendly and efficient. That being said, the hotel does have its issues, like any other: the breakfast wasn't anything special, the hotel's wi-fi was both slow and unreliable, and the rooms have virtually no soundproofing, so if you're a light sleeper and get noisy neighbors, that could potentially be a bit of an issue. But even with those flaws, given the location and the price, I'd recommend Hotel Olympia as a very nice choice

Hotel Olympia, a boutique-design hotel, ideally located at the center of the city, offers excellent service from a kind and pleasant staff, culinary kitchen, very comfortable rooms, cozy bar and perfect cleanliness! It is a pleasure always to return here!

Very nice rooms and clean. Small bathroom but you don't need more of that :) Location is good. Nice staff, free internet. Very pleasant place. I ate only breakfast there but it was delicious and arranged creatively. Near is a street full of antiquities, also you have a lot of caffes and shops near by and fantastic ice cream.
I was only for one night there with a group in June 2013. It was a bussines travel to Greece but I highly recommend this hotel.

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for choosing Hotel Olympia for your stay and for writing such a flattering review! What more can a manager ask for than a pleased guest who furthermore takes the time to give feedback?!
Our objective is exactly this, to offer quality services with a slightly twisted and alternative taste within a refurbished building in the heart of a friendly city.
Thank you once more and hope to see you again in the near future!

Kind regards

Dear Mrs Crompton,

Thank you so much for choosing Hotel Olympia, for posting such a good review and most of all for being such a loyal guest! Your words further motivate us to improve but most of all confirm how much we try to provide quality services on a daily basis, since this is the key to have repetitive guests like yourself.
We look forward to seeing you sometime soon!

Thank you!

Returned at this hotel after 5 years and the impressions are quite the same.Apart from the fact that the room this time was smaller than the first time and the toilet had a shower other than bathtub with jacuzzi,the rest is the same and quite good.I like this hotel because it is clean,with a really good breakfast and good service.The only problem was that the towels are not soft at all and they look old and consumed.But I enjoyed the bed and the variety of its breakfast.I would return!

Dear guest,

Thank you for having chosen to stay in our hotel for the second time and for giving us feedback!
We really appreciate your good words concerning our location, the breakfast buffet and cleanliness of our premises. We really try hard to keep up to our guests' expectations and provide service better than 3* hotels usually do. Unfortunately out of the 97 rooms, some are smaller than others and some are already refurbished a 2nd time.
Please let us know in advance of your future visits so that we can allocate you in the type of room you enjoyed more in your fist visit.
Take care and thank you again for your valuable information.

Kind regards

I spent a weekend in Thessaloniki and chose Olympia for its location. It is basically 5 min walk from Aristotelous square. All in all the hotel was a basic hotel, value for its money with a standard breakfast. The size of the double room was small but for a weekend stay it's ok.

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for choosing our hotel for your stay in Thessaloniki and for giving us feedback. We are happy that you found our location convenient but we are also sorry it seems we didn't quite meet or exceed your expectations.
We are a descent, fairly recently renovated 3* hotel offering standard services at the lowest possible rates. We try to keep up to date with continuous small changes within our premises (fitness room under construction, a la carte menu etc) and hope to better please you in a possible future visit of yours.
Again thank you for your time and valuable information! We remain at your disposal.

Kind regards

The hotel is very close to the centre of Thessaloniki, easily reached by bus from the airport (45 minutes and a 5 minute walk). It is quite modern and the staff are friendly and helpful.

The structure itself is maybe a little worn from having too many groups staying for only a night or two; some of the taps could be looked at for a bit of necessary maintenance, and the curtains in the showers (at least in mine) are not the best possible solution to keep the floor dry, so after each use there is quite a large puddle ....

Sheets were clean, pillows are a bit hard if you are used to feathers; the lack of tea making facilities was a pity, but maybe the groups mentioned above are the reason.

Breakfast was good and served until quite late (11.00 am); do ask for an upper floor room, as the streets below the hotel can be a bit noisy in the evening (and evenings in Greece go on and on and on).

Rack rate advertised in the rooms is about 130 €; this is too much in my opinion, so look around for a deal, or ring up the hotel directly.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for having chosen Hotel Olympia for your stay and especially for taking the time to write such a detailed review! Your feedback not only helps future guests to get the real picture, but also the hotel staff itself to improve.
It is a fact that the average stay of guests (groups, FIT etc) is a little less than 2 (days) and this is indeed very costly for the hotel. HO was thoroughly refurbished in 2007 when it turned into a boutique hotel... however severe changes and maintenance (like changing furniture cloth, painting etc) are being done continuously. We are even setting off a new small fitness and spa area. So please stay tuned!
Upper floors are indeed more quiet because of the area becoming more and more popular, but again it depends on the days of the week. As for our pillows, they are Dunlopillo (20% goose feather and 80% duck feather). I'm sure we could have given you softer ones.
Finally the rack rate you are mentioning is a bit extreme and I am wondering who manages to sell online at a price like this.
We can't thank you enough for this review and your tips! We will be happy to welcome you again anytime soon.

Kind regards
