I can not find a single fault in Excelsior and my stay there...!! Although it was short stay, as all business trips, I arrived quite sick and could not help but say that the hotel made my life so much easier. First, check in was the fastest one ever, we were upgraded to better rooms, we got a gift from the hotel owners with a hand written complimentary card, designs/decorations amazing, as clean as it gets (and am very, VERY picky), they sent me free of charge some sick food, breakfast is heaven with healthy and not so healthy choices, all staff was overwhelmingly friendly/kind & helpful... I felt so proud that a Greek hotel chain has such high standards. What can I say... GREAT JOB, keep it up and definitely my exclusive stay in SKG.

I haven't stayed at the hotel, but had this amazingly scrumptious brunch at the restaurant and can summarize in a single sentence: best benedict ever! the service was excellent and the environment cozy, yet elegant.

Part of Small Luxury Hotels club, and rightfully so. Perfect size (34 rooms)for a boutique hotel, great service and amenities earns him this respectful status. Renovated classic building and optimal location between Ladadika and all major attractions completes the picture. Definitely 2 thumbs ☝.

Like last year, we chose The Excelsior because of its great location. Room was selected during the reservation process (looking at the backyard). Front desk service was exceptional and Konstantinos very helpful and always with a smile! The room was enough for our needs (comfortable bed, small but okish bathroom - did not replace bathroom amenities even though were empty....) Unfortunately the overall quality of the breakfast (excl. few items only) was not at as high standard as expected... the service at the breakfast still needs to be improved.... (waitresses arguing with each other few times in the two days we were there...). As per my last year’s review if you are looking for a spa hotel experience this should not be your choice... In conclusion, we will be back whenever we will revisit Thessaloniki for a city trip.

The first time we stayed here several years ago we were impressed by the look, service and uniqueness of this gorgeous design hotel. In October, we booked there for the second time and were not disappointed. Our room had a private terrace with views to the sea, top-notch design and quality (fixtures, bed etc.). Importantly, it had great soundproofing (a must in downtown Saloniki) and an unexpectedly excellent breakfast buffet. The staff is attentive yet not pushy. The location is amazing - just minutes away from the best shops, bars and coffee bars. We will stay here again as soon as possible.

I stayed here with my large wine group and everyone loved this hotel - beautiful, comfortable and quiet rooms, excellent breakfast, and a super staff that is accommodating and highly professional. Because of the changing size of the group, I had to contact the reservation team many times and the team always answered promptly and made everything perfect. Upon arrival, we got great help with our luggage and when someone left important documents at the hotel (and only realized this back in Athens), the hotel staff brought them to the bus station and safely put them on the next bus to Athens - a huge relief and kind favor. The hotel has a very comfortable and good bar, within a couple minutes of walking, there are numerous outstanding restaurants. When in Thessaloniki, Hotel Excelsior will be our place to stay. Thanks again to the staff.

We returned to enjoy the excellence of service and the superb location in the vibrant heart of the city. The rich breakfast had new additions with the young ladies in the roof garden doing an excellent job. The room 45, was immaculately clean with all the little items that make a stay memorable. Politeness dominates the staff from the reception , the maids and the waitresses . We'll certainly return soon.

The Excelsior is an absolute gem of a hotel. Pristine rooms, so tastefully decorated and elegantly appointed. The bed was so comfortable and the nightly delicate chocolates divine. The service is impeccable and the morning rooftop breakfast five star in my opinion. I didn't want to leave! The location is excellent for walking anywhere and it sits in a hip area with a fabulous urban vibe. I struck GOLD with this hotel. Highly recommend.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The location of the hotel is very convenient. It’s a walking distance from many major places. Hotel staff was very friendly and willing to help. The room was very clean, bed was very comfortable. Highly recommended.

Beautiful luxury boutique hotel in the heart of the city. Excellent location close to shops, cafes and restaurants. The staff was friendly, polite and knowledgable. The complimentary rooftop breakfast was excellent as well, they even had Gluten free items for me. Unfortunately I cannot say the same about the room. Other than the fact it was small and the bathroom even smaller, the bed was queen size. I had speicifically booked a double bed. Once we checked in, I found out that the bed was a queen. In fact the whole hotel has only queen beds.I really need my space when I sleep. so I had a couple of bad sleep nights even though the hotel itself was amazing. Too bad.
