Where to Stay in Thessaloniki – Elisabeth Boutique Hotel

This blog post is written in cooperation with Elisabeth Boutique Hotel and based on my personal experience.

Who says city trips can’t be relaxing?

If you’re like me and enjoy clocking in 20,000 steps a day while exploring, it can get quite tiring over time.

But thankfully, cities offer hidden gems such as the Elisabeth Boutique Hotel in Thessaloniki, where you feel like you’ve stumbled upon a wellness retreat.

Imagine spacious rooms, a private spa area complete with a sauna and jacuzzi, and a delightful breakfast buffet, all wrapped up in a modern yet cozy ambiance.

But let’s start from the beginning, I don’t want to give everything away at once.

Read on to find out more about my stay at Elisabeth Boutique Hotel and why I think it’s the best place to stay in Thessaloniki!

A Wonderful Stay at Elisabeth Boutique Hotel

When my sister and I arrived in Thessaloniki late in the evening, we headed straight to Elisabeth Boutique Hotel where we would be staying for the next four nights.

It took us an hour’s bus ride and a 10-minute walk to get to the hotel, which happens to be conveniently situated just a stone’s throw from the waterfront promenade and numerous other key attractions in the city.

From the outside, the building looks rather inconspicuous and only the large lettering on the facade gives you the idea that there’s a hotel inside.

A Tasteful Welcome

The moment we opened the door and went inside, it was clear that the interior was nothing like its humble exterior.

It was almost like entering a chic furniture store, only a little more cozy and with a reception desk straight ahead.

On the left is a giant, comfy sofa as part of the lobby area, inviting you to take a seat. While on the right-hand side are some wooden tables and chairs in a modern design, that belong to the hotel’s restaurant.

As we proceeded to the reception counter, the lovely staff member greeted us with a heartful smile and welcomed us warmly.

Another staff from the restaurant promptly served us each a refreshing glass of sweet apple juice as a welcome drink, which we enjoyed while completing the check-in process

We were also given a map of Thessaloniki where we got the most important sights pointed out, and then we made our way to our room.

Comfortable & Luxurious With a Modern Twist

For your stay at Elisabeth Boutique Hotel, you can choose between six different room categories.

From the cozy corner room with a minimalistic aesthetic to a two-story suite with a combination of spaciousness, style, and panoramic city views, each room is individually designed.

Our room belonged to the “premium room” category, which boasted a spacious 38 square meters and offered a wealth of amenities and features.

Inspired by the hues of nature, the entire room was held in earthy tones with opulent dark wood furnishings and complemented by a unique stone treatment on the walls.

The centerpiece of the room was clearly the huge king-size bed with a super comfortable COCO-MAT mattress (I slept like a baby every night) and two pillow options.

Opposite the bed was a couch with three small wood-effect tables and a TV on the right-hand side of the wall.

Of all the bathrooms I’ve seen in hotels, the one in the Elisabeth Boutique Hotel was probably one of the coolest.

It was separated as its own space, yet maintained a sense of openness with glass walls blending it into the rest of the room.

Privacy was assured by curtains that could be drawn from the outside – something I hadn’t seen elsewhere before.

It was equipped with a free-standing bathtub, a wash basin with a hanging mirror, a toilet, a towel rack, and a small shelf stocked with premium toiletries from the Greek brand Zealots of Nature.

Additionally, the room featured a spacious wardrobe, a cozy sitting area furnished with two upholstered armchairs and a table, and a commode with a fully stocked minibar and a Nespresso machine.

They also provided plush bathrobes (truly as fluffy as promised) and slippers for the spa area – the place we’re looking at next.

A Place to Rest & Relax

I don’t know about you but for me, city trips can be quite exhausting at times.

With the desire to explore as much as possible, you’re constantly on the move throughout the day, which can leave your feet aching by evening.

Fortunately, Elisabeth Boutique Hotel provides a cozy yet excellent spa area, perfect for unwinding after a busy day.

A sauna and jacuzzi offer the perfect opportunity to soothe your tired muscles and reflect on the day’s adventures. Alternatively, you can treat yourself to a massage for the ultimate relaxation.

Spa Area Elisabeth Boutique Hotel

For those who are highly motivated, unlike myself, there’s a dedicated area with various fitness equipment.

The fact that you have the spa area completely to yourself, as you have to book a time slot to use it, makes the whole thing even better!

Breakfast The Greek Way

For me, it doesn’t take much to get the day off to a good start. A delicious cup of coffee with plant-based milk, some bread with jam, fruits, and maybe some cereals – that’s it.

Of course, there’s plenty of all this available at the breakfast buffet at Elisabeth Boutique Hotel. And yes, providing almond milk for my coffee wasn’t even a problem!

The buffet is located within the restaurant and split between two sides of the room. On the left side, you’ll find traditional Greek breakfast items like Bougatsa and Koulouri, along with fruit salad, and cold and warm savory dishes.

The right side features mostly sweet stuff such as cereals, pies, jam, and dried fruits.

No matter what your cravings are in the morning, it’s sure to be there!

Whether it was the great staff who remembered my special coffee requests or the incredibly chic and cozy design of the hotel – leaving was extremely difficult.
