This delightful gem is directly and perfectly situated in the heart of the city and just a couple of minutes stroll from the seafront promenade and Aristotelous Square, a 15-minute walk from the famous White Tower and only a few blocks away from the hottest bars, cafes and shopping district- Mitropoleos- which is vibrant during both day and night.
Built in 1924 The Excelsior’s historical and classic building received a contemporary make- over last year and now offers the latest technology and designer interior, plus features a roof garden (perfect for breakfast) and a popular eatery named be* where you can eat and drink all day.
