The Excelsior offered us true, unadulterated luxury, without any compromise. The fine historic building was masterfully re-designed for modern use some ten years ago and has been beautifully maintained since. Our room (#41) was spotlessly clean, spacious, beautifully appointed in a minimalist design without any clutter but with everything that one needs to feel at home. Its unusual arrangement with the shower in a large alcove off the bedroom (apparently adapted from a bay window) rather than within the toilet/washbasin room worked beautifully. The room was also very quiet. The location is in the heart of downtown Thessaloniki, next to the best shopping and dining. The hotel is not too big, and the staff were wonderful - there is a human scale and a human touch to this place.
One expects a well-stocked minibar in a hotel like this, but not what we also got: a complimentary bottle of excellent Chalkidiki wine and delicious sweets and cheeses. The breakfast was fabulous, too.
We will definitely be back as soon as we can.

A great hotel in the center of Thessaloniki. All the major attractions are within walking distance. The rooms are very nice and clean. The service is perfect and they got an answer for every request and question,

Solid 4 star hotel. The hotel has an excellent buffet breakfast, with eggs cooked to your liking, and coffee made fresh as ordered. The breakfast staff was polite and attentive, without being intrusive. The rooms however, are quite small. In particular, the ‘bathrooms’ consist of only the shower with frosted glass surrounding them. It was cramped and not very comfortable to shower in. The hotel provided a welcome bottle of wine and chocolate dipped strawberries upon arrival, which were lovely. There is a ground flour restaurant associated with the hotel, which was good, but not great, in terms of choice. Finally, I found the reception staff to be very variable. There were a couple of welcoming ones, and a couple who were aloof. Overall, it is a nice hotel.

We spent 5 days at the charming boutique hotel, The Excelsior in Thessaloniki. If you are looking for a fun stay, in the heart of Thessaloniki and close to the seaport - then this place is a must. The staff is amazing, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

Run and staffed by great people. Tasteful quality in a great location. Good food at in house restaurant and close to all attractions. Only advice is that rooms in the same category seem to vary a lot. Looking forward to returning.
