I booked a room for one night at the Astoria through Hotels.com before reading the reviews of the hotel on TripAdvisor. Seeing the negative reviews, I considered cancelling my booking but I read on the hotel's website that it had recently been refurbished, plus I realised that the booking was non-refundable because it was a cheap rate, so I decided to stick with it. I'm pleased that I did. The hotel was clean and modern, if somewhat impersonal, and is a good, cheap option in a relatively central location close to the port and the train station.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- To discover the real Greece come to Thessaloniki, the crossroads of the Ancient and Byzantine worlds, the second largest city in Greece, and a jumping off point for sight seeing in both the Greek cultural and natural landscapes. Excellently situated in the heart of the city, the ASTORIA is ideal for access to the business district and stock exchange, the main shopping areas and the city's night life and cultural sites. Also close by is the quaint and traditional Ladadika (from the Greek word, Ladi, meaning oil).
