ABOUT THESSALONIKI

LOCAL INFORMATION

THE EXCELSIOR IN THESSALONIKI CENTER

The completely renovated The Excelsior, a gem amongst Northern Greece hotels and Macedonia hotels in particular, lies right in the heart of Thessaloniki center.

Situated on the corner of Mitropoleos and Komninon street, the hotel is just steps away from commercial Tsimiski Street and the picturesque Aristotelous square; in other words, in downtown of Thessaloniki.

THESSALONIKI CENTER SITES

Stepping outside the hotel, on Komninon street, you will find yourself within walking distance from some of the most important historical and cultural sites in the capital city of Macedonia region.

The Archaeological Museum -featuring rare exhibits from Macedonia as well as Thessaloniki itself-, the emblematic White Tower, the Byzantine Museum, the Church of Aghia Sofia, the Macedonian Centre of Contemporary Art, the Helexpo Convention Centre and the famous Aristotelous Square, are all a few minutes away.

THESSALONIKI WHITE TOWER

Few Northern Greece Hotels in Macedonia can take pride in offering such a majestic view, as the one that guests can contemplate on from The Excelsior’s Roof Garden. It is also true however, that Thessaloniki is a city made for living, not only for contemplating.

The Thessaloniki center is famous for the plethora of vibrant cafes, restaurants, bars and shops scattered around Aristotelous Square and beyond.

We urge you to walk on the Thessaloniki promenade, with its highly appraised view in Macedonia and in Greece, and take a moment to appreciate the beauty of Thermaikos Gulf under the shadow of its symbol, the imposing White Tower.
