Thessaloniki. Been two times in this little gem and more likely I will be back a third time pretty soon. The second time I arrived in this city I looked for a nice hotel, close to the main sights and with a parking nearby since I was arriving by car.
Bellow you can read my review for Mandrino Hotel, which I visited in August 2016.
Access and proximity
Since I arrive by car I can’t tell you how to reach the Hotel from the airport but if you are a traveler coming with your car, the Hotel has a good location on Egnatia 29 | Antigonidon 2, Thessaloniki 546 30, close to the main sights. Also parking space is available near the hotel for a fee(no more than 50-60 meters from the Hotel) so your car is safe there.
The hotel is 1 km away from Aristotelus Square, the main square of Thessaloniki, 2 km away from the White Tower of Thessaloniki or 1.6 km away from Rotonta (roman temple).
The promenade of Thessaloniki is close also (1.5 km) so you can enjoy a glass of drink in the evening and then walk on the quiet streets until you reach home.
Staff is very OK and friendly. Guided us towards the parking lot, asked us if we need guidance and the city, provided wi fi details and more. Overall we were satisfied with the staff.
The room is small but clean. We sat on a higher floor (8th I think) and even though the Hotel is close to Egnatia Street our room was not noisy. The room had a small balcony and a small shower/bathroom.
The only thing I can complain about the bathroom is the shower size but then again I’m 6.3 and 220 pounds so I can’t really say if it’s me or the shower size.
The breakfast is decent. It’s better than other places and not quite as good as in other hotels. Overall even though it’s not vary varied you can definitely pick something to eat to start the day good.
Mandrino Hotel is an OK hotel. I was satisfied with the staff and the room and can’t really complain about the breakfast size or diversity. I wouldn’t skip it from my list the next time I’m visiting Thessaloniki.
