12.9km from Taxilimo ThessalonikiExcelsior is a boutique hotel situated at a side street in the center of Thessaloniki. It is an old building of the early 20th century but fully renovated with modern installations (Wi-Fi, elevator, TV). The past got married with a modern taste and luxury. The architect seems to be very talented. The door-person will carry your luggage to the room and with a smile will inform you on breakfast hours, the surrounding restaurants, the way to call another room and much more, giving a personal attention to the guest. The room was comfortable, with a high ceiling and a balcony. The room and bathroom were very clean. The bathroom was not blocked. For room no. 45 the bathroom and WC are separated, a way to give full privacy, if both are occupied. The walls are dressed in white marble giving a luxury note to your room. Everything is arranged for spoiling the quests and giving the best comfort. A “welcome set” is offered, containing a bottle of water and Greek sweet cakes. Every evening new cakes will help you having sweet dreams. Snacks and a coffee machine are available with charge, if used. All staff members are very nice, professional and helpful, but exceptionally nice and professional was Georgina, the reception clerk. Breakfast is very diversified with cold food, but you can ask for a hot dish (e.g. any kind of eggs or pancakes) from the menu with no charge. One can find Greek yogurt and honey, several kinds of cheese, Greek specialties, and homemade cakes and tarts. Living early in the morning, we could not have breakfast in the dinning room, but a "breakfast" box for each guest was waiting for us. The content was beyond any expectation and very tasty. We highly recommend this hotel and will definitely come again.
