I stayed here for business and was stranded in Thessaloniki for an extra couple of days during the recent strikes. The hotel itself - location, rooms, aspect - was very good. Sea view rooms were incredibly well-positioned and the communal areas were all well-maintained. The breakfast choice was wonderful and truly 5 star.

The one thing that let the hotel down however was the general attitude of some (not all) of the staff, who seemed to range from bemused/ under pressure to decidedly unhelpful. Granted this was a time of high stress for much of the country, but it did seem like they could have done more to put their (equally uncertain) guests at ease during an eventful week.

Finally, on the day we left there was an enormous cardiovascular conference which saw the hotel reception area branded by the organisers and the lobby full of pharmaceutical stalls. This really did make for a raucous and not-very relaxing checkout, and I'm sure other hotel guests not involved with the conference would have felt equally out of place and sidelined.

Next time, despite those sea views, I think I'll choose somewhere more peaceful overall.

Room Tip: sea view, only sea view!

If you want to be on the waterfront in Thessaloniki, 15 mins walk from the White Tower and close to museums, and to have a swimming pool, then this is a good place to be. But if possible, wait till they finish the road works! The seafront area and local roads were completely dug up, so the view from the hotel was a bit of a mess and you couldn't walk along the waterfront into town but had to walk alongside busy roads and pick your way around heaps of rubble. Not the hotel's fault, and I'm sure it will be lovely when it's finished, but if this is important to you, then check before you book.

The hotel is clean & bright, a bit too "posh" for my taste but that's just me -- I generally prefer small hotels. We chose this one for the location and the pool. In the end the weather was too wet & windy to use the pool area, but it looked lovely, as others have said.
The room was good but not outstanding, rather "corporate," the bathroom was nice but nothing special for a five-star hotel -- a bit dated.
Breakfast was simply excellent, with a wide range of delicious local products as well as all the usual buffet selection.

Room Tip: Go for a sea-view room and a higher floor
