A beautiful and lovingly restored 1920’s historic building on the corner of a pretty intersection of streets in the city’s vibrant centre and just moments away from the shimmering waterfront and the central Aristotelous square, The Excelsior Hotel is the place to stay in exciting Thessaloniki.
Stylishly refurbished, keeping original features such as ceiling roses, elaborate plasterwork and marble staircases, but with a twist of contemporary furnishings and artwork, a stay at this boutique bolthole in the heart of the action will be a truly memorable experience.
A delicious continental breakfast is enjoyed on the rooftop which has bright and refreshing indoor and outdoor spaces. A sunny morning overlooking the cityscape while enjoying local delicacies really is the best way to start the day.
The Mezzanine is an elegant space in which to order coffee and host meetings and the fabulous street level Be* restaurant makes a fresh and alternative take on international classics, such as burgers and falafel. While the theme is comfort food, dishes are crafted to the highest standard and enjoyed on convivial banquette seating, making the dining experience casual and welcoming.
The hotel’s 34 bedrooms consists of 22 double rooms, 8 junior suites and 4 excelsior suites with added living room spaces. Each room is individually designed, seamlessly blending modern and classic furnishings, with original art adorning the walls by young and emerging Greek artists.
Extras can include a customised mini bar and maid service to unpack your bags while you explore the city.
Right in the heart of Greece’s vibrant second city, The Excelsior gives you direct access to urban cultural offerings, ancient monuments, local cuisine and nautical pursuits. The friendly and knowledgeable concierge will give expert advice on exploring the city and its rich history. The hotel is located moments away from the city’s main square Aristotelous that is lined with cafés and historic villas. A leisurely walk down the pretty waterfront with its bars and boutiques leads you to the striking 16th-century White Tower that houses an interactive museum of the city’s history.
The glorious Halkidiki peninsulas with their stunning beaches and nature reserves are less than two hours away by car and come highly recommended when visiting the region.
