“Average in everything”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

Apart from being in a convenient (but not the best for sure) location this hotel is...yawn!
A place to crush when in town.
Average, tired rooms with tired furniture and bed linen
Yes clean, safe and friendly but desperately needs a revamp :-)

Hotel is adequately located, right next to the promenade and there are also some nice parks and children playgrounds around. The center is 30 min. on foot and 5min with a car. Also it benefits the free parking(although the hotel has its own, `guarded`parking spaces that cost 5 eur a day if you want such thing) which is next to the hotel.
Rooms are clean and modestly comfortable. The noise from the boulevard opposite the building can be a bit of a problem but closing the windows solves the problem, the isolation is ok.

We stayed a week at this hotel while we conducted a training seminar nearby. The price fit our budget and it was within 5 minutes walking distance to our seminar. The staff are friendly and helpful. I appreciated that housekeeping followed the "green" policy of not replacing towels unless asked and changed the sheets every other day, although that was not really necessary either. The bathrooms have been updated, and yes, as other reviewers mentioned, the shower stall is small. We figured out how to prevent the shower curtain from billowing inward by sticking the bottom corners of the curtain to the walls, but leaving an open space at the top to vent. In Greece, as in many other countries, the toilet paper is not flushed but put in the waste bin. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate and the Lazy Lizard restaurant connected to the hotel has reasonable (10% discount as hotel guests) and tasty meals. My husband and I shared an order because the servings were large! The free wifi was one of the reasons we booked the hotel. The bed was too hard for my comfort.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the noisy elevators. We were right across from the elevators, but there was...

I've stayed there while attending a conference. The hotel is located outside of walking reach from the Aristotelos Square, although not very far away from it.
It's a bit hard to notice from the street.
It's near the sea front, but in an area where it was impossible to get to it due to some construction going on.
There's a good paid for parking lot behind the hotel. And a public parking space in front of it across the street.
There's also a taxi stand right next to the hotel.
The hotel is obviously very dated. But the rooms are clean and with the usual amenities.
Sadly there was no ironing facilities in the room, but the staff would do the ironing for you on request. I've asked for ironing a pair of pants and a shirt and it took them 1/2 hour. And this was no extra charge.
The breakfast is very decent. The hotel serves no lunch or dinner, but they'd give you a discount coupon for a restaurant nearby (and that's decent too).
There was a decent speed free wifi (unlimited devices) everywhere in the hotel (rooms included).
Unfortunately there were no outlets near the bed in my room, so make sure you carry the needed stuff to charge your laptop from afar (desk).
The air conditioning in my room was a bit noisy, but turning it on the lowest fan level made it bearable.
The noise from the air-conditioning was accompanied by some periodic buzz in the middle of the nights that I couldn't identify (lifts ?).
The lobby staff is very friendly and willing to help with all of your questions. They accept all major credit cards and are issuing readable invoices.
Overall, for the price it's a great hotel to spend a couple of days into.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms close to the elevator or external air conditioning

My family of 6 stayed here the end of May. Although the hotel is dated looking, the staff was friendly and accommodating. It is very reasonably priced, which is our first priority when booking a hotel overseas. We believe that we aren't spending much time in the hotel anyway so no need to spend a lot of money for one.
The location was good and we felt safe. Breakfast wasn't much to speak of for 5 Euros, though. Toast, cereal, coffee, boiled eggs and some sort of traditional Greek pastry.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony and view of the sea.

The Queen Olga is one of those hotels which fit most easily into the category 'seen better days'. A rather depressing air envelopes everything - reception area, rooms, breakfast room...the staff look a little depressed too, as there aren't a huge number of customers, but they reacted well to a few gentle British jokes.
On the plus side, my room was quiet (ask for one looking out over the side street unless you like hearing the thunder of traffic along the main street outside), clean and comfortable. It was easy to forgive the broken shower rail and missing plug in the washbasin.
The main drawback was eating - it's quite a long way from the centre, the hotel doesn't have a restaurant and the nearest one is a place called the 'Lazy Lizard' - a short walk round the corner - with not much for vegetarians and rather pricey.
Breakfast was OK - suggestion, serve scrambled, not cold hardboiled eggs.
It's relatively cheap to stay in, with very friendly hard-working staff. But not much of the 'Wow' factor...

me and my husband stayed in this hotel over the weekend. The rooms were small, the bathroom was old and the furniture was in bad condition. The mattresses were terrible and uncomfortable. The location is good, but still not great. There are hotels in Thessaloniki for the same price that are located more centrally. The good thing is that in some rooms if you are lucky you can get some sea view, but that's about it.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review our property.

Please note that we are sorry that you were not satisfied during your stay in our hotel.
All your comments have been forwarded to our General Manager since our goal is to use our guests' reviews to become better and deliver better services to our future / existing guests.

We would kindly like to inform you that our hotel has different kinds of rooms; standard rooms have renovated rooms but relatively old bathrooms, standard plus rooms have fully renovated rooms and bathrooms - both type face the avenue or the pedestrian street right next to the hotel. We also have sea view rooms that face Thermaikos Gulf. The room rates differ according to what type the traveler chooses.

We believe that it is for the travelers' best interest, to always check out the website of a hotel in order to find out complete information before chosing the room type that is best for them.
The same applies for the location. In our web site there is analytical information upon our location together with a Google Map so that it is more familliar to the visitors.

Again I would like to express our regret for not meeting your needs and we would be happy to see you again in one of your next trips to Thessaloniki.

Yours Sincerely,
