You could be forgiven for mistaking the striking French influenced 'Beaux Art' style façade of the Excelsior Hotel for a scene straight out of an Agatha Christie novel, evoking memories of bygone eras and grand hotels of the twenties. Located a stone's throw from the seafront promenade and the city's main Aristotelous Square, this contemporary styled luxury boutique hotel has been given a new lease of life thanks to an extensive restoration. The carefully preserved features of the original building compliment the modern ground-floor facades with large plate glass windows, minimal contemporary furnishing and subtle lighting to create a sophisticated ambiance. The unusual exotic orange light fittings, at times resembling Nautilus shells other times looking like oversize butterfly wings floating through a glass atrium, form a central theme which runs throughout the hotel adding bold touches of eccentricity. Inside, the Excelsior Hotel becomes a beacon for classic contemporary styling with elegant white leather seating in the lobby leading to an informal check-in desk and the ground floor BE restaurant bar, with its cosy layout and hip bistro styling.
With its central location close to the high street boutiques and department stores of Tsimiski Street and the white collar business district of the city, the Excelsior Hotel reigns supreme offering a choice of stylish and sophisticated accommodation. Guest rooms are modern, fresh and lean featuring graceful Italian furniture, original neo-minimalism works of art from emerging Greek artists and gold coloured drapes imbuing a richness which permeates the room. The penthouse Roof Garden Restaurant continues the modern contemporary styling, imparting a casual garden atmosphere with a plethora of shrubs, plants and trees on the terrace and natural sunlight streaming through the plate glass windows. This may be a down-town location, but once inside this classy boutique hotel you'll forget the city and feel as if you're home from home.
