Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Close to Thessaloniki's seafront esplanade and Aristotelous Square, the Excelsior Hotel is an elegant property with a striking Neoclassical façade.

Its central location puts you within strolling distance of Thessaloniki's main attractions including the White Tower, a museum and viewing platform in a former Ottoman prison, and Yeni Hamam, a 16th-century Turkish bath-turned-restaurant. Greece's second city has a thriving bar and restaurant scene, and many of the narrow streets are strewn with cool cafés. The city's best clubs are located in the Ladadika district. For boutique shopping head to the Mitropoleos area.

The hotel occupies a building that dates back to 1924 and features resorted Art Deco-style wrought iron balconies and a magnificent marble staircase. Breakfast is served in the rooftop garden and you can enjoy lunch and dinner at the contemporary Be* restaurant. There's no spa but guests receive discounts at the Excelsior's sister property nearby.

All 34 rooms have wooden floors and a balcony overlooking the city centre or a courtyard. They're decorated in cream, and feature gold curtains and artwork by emerging Greek artists. In-room perks include Nespresso coffee machines, flat-screen TVs, marble bathrooms and free Wi-Fi.
