“Good location, poor infrastructure”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

El Greco is at an absolutely perfect location, with everything to see in town just a 10-minute walk away. I understand that hoteling is as much a business as anything else - and the room was quite cheap - so I am not going to complain about a 3-person elevator being to small for a 9-story hotel, or the room being too small and dark. However, I think that some things don't depend on money, so eg. the staff making a noise every morning in the corridors and stains on the bathroom wall would merely require some management attention and could easily make El Greco an excellent place to sleep at. Until then, it's average at best.

On our way from Romania to Corfu we stopped twice at El Greco. Initially we weren't planning to stop again, on our way home but we liked the hotel and we decided to stay there again and to do a quick visit of downtown Thessaloniki.
We stayed at the 9th and then at the 8th floor.

Liked:
- the view
- the room (especially the bed)
- the location: not far from the main POIs of the city
- Internet kiosks at ground floor

Didn't like:
- no space to pull the car in front of the building. I had to park on the sidewalk while waiting to check-in.
- wifi signal tends to be weak at the upper floors.

Other comments:
- the hotel is on the "wrong"side of the street, regardless if you arrive by car from Bulgaria or from Southern or Western Greece. You must make a left at the last intersection before the hotel and then drive around the back in order to be able to park in front of it. I learned that only the second time we got there.
- this will be my 1st choice for accomodation in Thessaloniki going forward.
- if you're a fan: there's a Starbucks very close to the hotel. Thumbs up!

Nice hotel right in the center located on a very busy road , Egnatia Street. Parking is available and you can even book rooms with free parking. Average breakfast. Rooms were renovated sometime. But in the room where breakfast is served has not reached any restorer. Everything is old even marble adorning the walls . Good for a couples of days.

Room Tip: elevator is very small with space for two people with maximum one trolley

This is a nicely located hotel right in the center of Thessaloniki. This hotel has been recently renovated and rooms were very comfortable. We had a family suite with two adjoining rooms which offered lots of space as well as privacy. Bathrooms were nicely equipped and clean. Beds were comfortable and internet was fast. We also had a refrigerator in the room. Rooms have all the basics and were clean but do not expect anything overly luxurious at this price point. Reception was very friendly and efficient. The hotel is within very short walking distance to shopping, restaurants, cafes and nightlife. The only comment i would make is that due to the very central location it is extremely loud on the street side due to passing cars, motorcycles, etc. i would highly suggest asking for a room that doesn't face the street if noise bothers you. Also, the balconies are nice to have but have very bright lights which make sitting outside in the evening uncomfortable since you feel like you are in the spotlight.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street can be loud due to the passing traffic so definitely ask for a room away fro...

The hotel was very clean and right on the heart of Thessaloniki. The location of the hotel is very good because is located in one of the main streets of Thessaloniki an you do not need car or bus or taxi in order to go to central locations like Aristotelous square. Staff was very helpful and friendly. A very good choice and value for money!!!

There was a big "trip advisor" sign at the front desk, that showed an overall rating of 4. I don't know if they have had a 4 in the past, but for quite a time before our stay, during it and even now, overall rating is 3,5 - and it is overrated at that. Worn out rooms, basic at best - not dirty, but not that clean either. Although breakfast was included, we did not attempt it - one friend who did had a few issues for the rest of the day. Location not that far from the center, but I would not advise women to stay here alone. If the area doesn't bother you, try somewhere else even if you have to pay a little extra.

Very clean hotel, right on the heart of thessaloniki. Staff very friendly. Although recently renovated, rooms could have newer sheets and bed covers. I have stayed there 3 times already and i would happily stay again.
