A modern boutique hotel meets tradition and hospitality
Excelsior is a boutique hotel situated at a side street in the center of Thessaloniki. It is an old building of the early 20th century but fully renovated with modern installations (Wi-Fi, elevator, TV). The past got married with a modern taste and luxury. The architect seems to be very talented. The door-person will carry your luggage to the room and with a smile will inform you on breakfast hours, the surrounding restaurants, the way to call another room and much more, giving a personal attention to the guest. The room was comfortable, with a high ceiling and a balcony. The room and bathroom were very clean. The bathroom was not blocked. For room no. 45 the bathroom and WC are separated, a way to give full privacy, if both are occupied. The walls are dressed in white marble giving a luxury note to your room. Everything is arranged for spoiling the quests and giving the best comfort. A “welcome set” is offered, containing a bottle of water and Greek sweet cakes. Every evening new cakes will help you having sweet dreams. Snacks and a coffee machine are available with charge, if used. All staff members are very nice, professional and helpful, but exceptionally nice and professional was Georgina, the reception clerk. Breakfast is very diversified with cold food, but you can ask for a hot dish (e.g. any kind of eggs or pancakes) from the menu with no charge. One can find Greek yogurt and honey, several kinds of cheese, Greek specialties, and homemade cakes and tarts. Living early in the morning, we could not have breakfast in the dinning room, but a "breakfast" box for each guest was waiting for us. The content was beyond any expectation and very tasty. We highly recommend this hotel and will definitely come again.
If you want a spacious room with a modern look in a classic looking hotel and centrally located, this is the way to go. In addition, the a la carte breakfast and the friendly staff is a big plus. Very good value for the money.
This is an extremely well run boutique hotel. It has a great location situated on a road between the main shopping road and the sea front promenade. It is in a fairly recently modernised and refurbished classical building with its own pavement cafe. The bedrooms and bathrooms are not large but they are very comfortable and tastefully furnished in contemporary style. Breakfasts are good with both buffet and waitress service for hot food. The orange juice must be pressed fresh each day because it is the best we have ever had after many years of travel. The staff were incredibly pleasant, welcoming and couldn't do enough to help. Particular mention of Georgina and Kostantinos on reception. They found us a very reasonable car rental company for our day outings to the Halkidiki peninsulars. The car was brought to the hotel, valet parked overnight and collected on the last day.
Thank you very much for the pleasant and social hospitality, special thanks to georgina, who helped us very patiently in choosing the taverns that interested us. The location is excellent Breakfast is very good The hotel is clean and tidy and very luxurious Sure we will come back again Vered & Zvi
