We stayed here for two nights and I cannot fault the hotel, apart from the fact that it was too warm in the room. It is very clean and in a very central position. Breakfast is very nice, some of the best fried eggs I've had. Cooked to perfection. I would especially like to thank Elina on reception. She was... More

Beautiful hotel, immaculate, with impeccable service. Staff were incredibly helpful and very friendly. Breakfast is excellent but the service is a little slow. If you are in a rush, just have food from the buffet and don't order eggs(they are included). The room is perfect, but the bathrooms are very small And have an odd layout. This doesn't detract from... More

Stayed in this boutique style hotel for 2 nights. In the heart of town within a minutes walk from the waterfront. Rooms a bit small but clean and tidy. Staff very helpful and ideal location in a lovely area. Lovely city with a lot of character. Highly recommend a visit.

Great little boutique hotel in the center of Thessaloniki. Perfect setting: beautiful architecture, good design, soffisticated service. The rooms are perfectly equipped. It´s a good place for business as well as for couples. Nice breakfast on the roof-top with a good mixture of international standard and Greek specialties. My favorite place in town.

We enjoyed our stay a lot thanks to very friendly staff, spacious room, rich breakfast and very good location. It was also safe and very clean. I believe it could be the best choice in Thessaloniki so far.

The hotel was generally speaking perfect! The rooms were wonderful , the staff were so helpful and efficient and breakfast was delicious! The building has been restored in a chic, refined way, which combines the latest technology with class and elegance. You feel you are a guest in a renovated mansion, not a hotel!
