The Excelsior, Lofty Accommodation

Past and future converge inside this Neoclassical beauty

Located right in the center of town and the heart of the financial, business & commercial  district, only steps away from Aristotelous square.

BACKGROUND

The Excelsior is a luxury 5-star boutique hotel housed in a neoclassical building constructed in 1924 and restored to its former glory in 2009. It is bedecked with an imposing façade, art deco balconies and neoclassical full-length windows with views to the old town. Resembling the interior of a Parisian building from the 1900s, the classic marble staircase of the lobby and the magnificently renovated old elevator lead the guests upstairs to the comfortable and cozy rooms and suites.
