"Overlooking Thessaloniki's main square, the Electra Palace, with its curved, arcaded facade, has the best location in town." Full review
If you stay here, insist on one of the fourth- or fifth-floor rooms with a balcony overlooking the square; some of the interior rooms are astonishingly small.

"Blink and you may miss this circa-1920 hotel—a favorite of budget travelers—on a quiet, narrow street leading from the top corner of the Roman Forum to Ayios Dimitrios church." Full review

"An old favourite near the Church of Agios Dimitrios, the Orestias Kastoria is a friendly, small place with cosy, clean rooms. Prices rise in September, when conventions are held." Full review

"One of the best buys in town. The location, near the Roman Forum, is quiet; the (small) rooms have balconies... There is no elevator." Full review

"Although it's a bit spartan, this hotel is a good buy for families and budget travelers...rooms are spacious if plainly decorated, and prices include tea, coffee, and cookies all day. " Full review
