The Excelsior is a luxury boutique hotel located in Thessaloniki center, next to Aristotelous square, right in the heart of this vibrant town. Situated in its original classic and glorious historical building, dating back to 1924. The Excelsior cherishes its past and at the same time gazes into the future, as one of the most prominent small luxury hotels in Europe.
This new 5 star Hotel in the city centre of Thessaloniki is a vision come true for a family of hoteliers with a longstanding reputation for their commitment to excellence. The Tornivoukas family of Macedonian Hotels - known also for the Eagles Palace in Ouranoupolis, Halkidiki and the City Hotel in Thessaloniki - owned the renowned Meditéranée Palace Hotel of Thessaloniki (1925-1978), being one of the first true luxury hotels in Northern Greece and in the country.
Recently (2008), the owners of Macedonian Hotels with their long and well-respected tradition in hospitality, decided to renovate the historic building of The Excelsior entirely, turning it into a contemporary luxury 5 star hotel. After an extensive and diligent renovation, The Excelsior’s imposing façade of great architecture detail, ornamented by its art deco balconies and neoclassical full-length windows offering views of the old town, now emerges as beautiful and as elegant as ever and was proudly handed back to the people of Thessaloniki, Northern Greece and the city’s visitors in the autumn of 2009.
Upon entering the hotel and leaving behind the bustling town, one is taken by The Excelsior’s ultra-chic modern interior with its warm colours and an impressive red lamp that helix its way down from the mezzanine, resembling red leaves of an invisible tree.
Resembling the interior of a Parisian 1900’s building, the classic marble staircase and the magnificently renovated old elevator, both beautiful reminiscent of a truly elegant and glorious era, lead the guest upstairs to the comfortable and cosy rooms and suites of the hotel.
The Excelsior boutique hotel in Thessaloniki, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, offers its guests a choice of 34 stylish rooms and suites to select from. All rooms and suites are decorated in fresh contemporary style with a sophisticated use of colour, dressed with original works of art and Italian furniture and lighting, and are equipped with all modern facilities and comforts to please even the most demanding traveller.
Located right in the center of the town, only steps away from Aristotelous square, the shopping haven of Mitropoleos and Tsimiski streets and the seafront promenade, The Excelsior is the ideal choice amongst luxury hotels in Thessaloniki.
This graceful boutique hotel features all facilities of a luxury 5 star hotel, including a bar restaurant, lounge bar, roof garden with a breathtaking view of Thessaloniki center, supreme concierge service and top-class business and conference facilities.
Bearing the weight of its glorious past and proud of its new identity, The Excelsior welcomes the local people of Thessaloniki and its numerous visitors, with the warm hospitality and impeccable service that makes it what it is - an exceptional luxury boutique hotel in Thessaloniki.
