Travel agents in Athens have said that the
hotels in Thessaloniki are of a higher quality
than those of Athens because of the
city's status as the economic center of
the Balkans. These are a few of the available
hotels. You can find others at
Hotels of Greece.com and on my Thessaloniki Hotel Search Page

|Matt's Pick: Bristol Capsis Hotel: This beautiful 5-star hotel in a restored old building was at one time the post office for Thessaloniki. Miraculously
it survived the great fire of 1917 and is one of the most beautiful old hotels in the city if not in Greece.

All the rooms of air-conditioning, satellite television, mini-bar and wireless
internet. There is also a free computer in the atrium which you can get internet on as well. The rooms have the elegance of the Grande Bretagne in Athens and in some ways may be superior to them. The cafe which shares the ground floor with the lobby serves as the breakfast room and provides a filling breakfast and excellent coffee, espresso and capuccino.
