“What, no wifi!?”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is supposed to be a five star hotel and it probably was one once....a long time ago! It is desperately in need of renovation and the fact that the wifi is basically not accessible means that this is certainly not the hotel to choose if you have to visit Thessaloniki on business!

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view!

The best sea view in the city! Since it is located by the sea you can spend your evening by watching the sun falling in the horizon.. In addition its breakfast is the best in the city!!! All employees very polite and helpful!

I go there since 2010
I like the location and the service
Needs some upgrade but in general is good
I suggest better room service and better cafeteria when the weather is nice
To enjoy the atmosphere outside

Very good hotel, good bedroom, large bathroom, the lobby and the restaurant are very large and beautiful. Breakfast with many cold and hot options. Good location and easy to reach at any time of the day. Free wi-fi internet in bedroom, restaurant and lobby. The only thing I believe was missing are the stripes inside the bathtub to avoid to slip in shower.

Room Tip: Good apartments are in the back, facing the sea.

Having a majestic location overlooking the sea, this hotel remembers the glorious days, when it was a top hotel in town. In spite of the fact that it is rather old and needs renovation and a lot of investment to be "really" a five star hotel, it still has a good spirit and gentle atmosphere. The rooms are large and comfortable, the breakfast is good. The location is very practical and the staff is polite, offering you a fine Greek hospitality. If you are looking for luxury, you can't find it in this hotel. But you may get a good accomodation for a business trip with a fair price.

The hotel is situated 15 min walk from the city center. The sea view and the spacious balconies are wonderful. But the hotel looks abandoned. The building is old and you could see that in every corner. No wifi in the rooms and in the ground floor the wifi signal was weak.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view balcony

The once top hotel in Thessaloniki, this hotel is still impressive and has probably the best spot in the city. However, the changes in management and uncertainty about the future, show in some places - especially infrastructure (elevator, A/C, CRT TV).

The service is truly 5-star and the people who work reserve all the credit. Breakfast is superb, restaurant just ok and overpriced (like all 5star hotels I guess).
