10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"in the very heart of the town,is in a main street over the sea.The building veery old and the reception informed me that on the top is the name of the hotel,so the new owner kept this name.It is near everything so after work i had a walk by the sea and the famous district with the restaurants and bars.
I stayed 3 nights,very impressive.they have a hygiene system before entering the elevator.clever.the rooms so well renovated,wooden and marble floor,all the bath made from fine marble.has also free internet access.The reception very friendly and helped me with the taxi cabs."

excellent designer hotel
"stayed one night on the way from the Greek country side to London. Meticulously decorated hotel in the heart of the city, a stone throw away from the sea promenade. My room was smallish but very bright. Combination of the marble and light unpolished wood floor looks particularly stylish. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is rather modest for the hotel of this level but of high quality. Would recommend this hotel to everybody for whom elegant setting matters."

A Wonderful Hotel
"A hotel lives on the standard of its staff. All the staff at The Excelsior are exceptionally good. I have never stayed in any hotel anwhere in the world where the staff are as good as this. Nothing was too much trouble and we left the hotel feeling that we were extremely lucky to have stayed there.
The hotel is a great mix of modern and traditional. Great rooms with even better bathrooms. Fantastic beds!
The hotel is right in the middle of the restaurant and commercial district only a minutes walk from the cafes and bars on the seafront.
If you drive in by car then allow a while to find the hotel as the trip around the Thessaloniki one way system is interesting!
All in all a great place to stay - thoroughly recommended."
