Minerva Premier Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Imposing name notwithstanding, the Minerva Premier is a rather unassuming hotel. It faces Egnatia street (at No 44, NOT 12), but the entrance is at Syngrou 12 a smaller side-street. Our little group stayed overnight twice- on the way to- and from Mt Athos. On the whole, the experience was positive: The room was of v. good standard and definitely priceworthy, the service friendly and helpful. Most important-- the location is excellent: some minutes walk to Aristotle Square and the harbour, and with most tourist attractions and and a range of restaurants. at reasonable walking distance. The booking was arranged by our the group's (non-Greek) guide, who have stayed in this hotel on previous Athos trips. Thus, I never looked up the Trip-advisor reviews prior to booking- which (given the negative tone of some) was rather lucky. I am not sure that I would chose this hotel as a base for a longer holiday. But I would definitely pick it again as a stopover, if the opportunity arises
From the time I went to bed at 11:30pm till 5:30am music blaring from a nightclub 2 doors down, we had the windows & shutters closed made not difference at all ! Rooms were dirty, holes on my bedlinen definitely not a four star hotel
The hotel staff was very attentive and responsive. The location is good because it is in within walking distance to almost all nice and pleasant places in Thessaloniki. BUT... The furnishings in the rooms are very old and worn out especially in the bathrooms. The hotel is on the main street and next to it there are several nightclubs. The rooms are not soundproofed and the noise is very large so it is impossible to sleep all night.
Really dirty hotel, sticky and old furniture and appliances that not work!Breakfast poor, watery coffee from a molder coffee machine.There is no parking near. Rude people and unfriendly!Not worth the price!!AVOID!!
Where do I start? This hotel was one of the worsts I have ever visited in all these years. Very dirty, the room was full of mosquitos. My fiance and I woke up at 4 am trying to kill the silent mosquitos. The wall Ws full of blood marks (who knows how many people had our same "adventure"? 🤔).The toilet was small! The door of the wardrobe was broken. At the corner of the ceiling there was this big mark of humidity. Did they ever paint those rooms? Still wondering! The sheets had black stains. In the end....the breakfast....nothing in the bufé was eatable!
Beside the good location, aprox. 1km from Aristotelous Square, there is nothing good to mention. Poor cleanlines (beds, sheets, bathrooms, balconies), poor breakfast, small rooms, noisy area (boulevard, bars and pubs).
The hotel must have seen better days, but now it seems poorly run and maintained. The rooms are spacious, with classic furniture, but I would recommend a more thorough cleaning before any guests is checked in. There is dust and grime in every corner. The sheets and the towels were clean though, the bathroom as well. Breakfast was poor and served in an awkward space.
Wotif has this property as 4 star, far from it, the photos must have been taken when it was first built, needs to be downgraded to a 2 star. It's a grand building and in it day would have been lovely. No fridge and no light bulbs in the lampshades which were frayed and dusty. Internet was also very very poor in the rooms and was down in the morning when we were having breakfast. Breakfast was adequate.
terrible !!! stayed there for 2 nights. a room of 16sq.m with 3 beds which was dirty (we moved a side table by the bed and underneath revealed that it was probably not cleaned for ages), all hancooks were ready to drop, dirty bathtub ,wont recommend it especially if there are children involved
Hotel is at the perfect location - there is a bohemian quarter called Ladadika next to the hotel with many restaurants, pubs and bars, as well as the city center few minutes by walking. Entire hotel is in old style with old furniture, but very clean and refurbished. It also has a living room. Air condition is working, bathroom is clean and breakfast is also good. I have to mention that the receptionists are very kind and helpful - I've got sunburn and the girl from reception gave me her medication, asking everyday If I am alright. All in all, very good value for your money.
