Project owner: Makedonia Palace

Location: Thessaloniki


Makedonia Palace Hotel in Thessaloniki is taking center stage again after a 12.4 million euro facelift, with the aim to re-establish it as one of the finest luxury accommodation units in Southeastern Europe, management told a press event held on the premises on Tuesday.

Under the “Remake” program, the eight-storey unit – Thessaloniki’s first luxury hotel which opened its doors in 1972 – will undergo complete renovation works that will include everything from a new spa and fully equipped conference center to a 900m2 ballroom and modernized rooms, making it one of the largest ever makeover projects in Greece. The mega-investment aims to bring back the elegance of the hotel that marked Thessaloniki history and has grown to become a landmark for the city. The overhauled five-star hotel aims to attract higher profile visitors seeking to take a city break complete with unique experiences in local gastronomy, culture and nightlife.


The 276-room/suite hotel, part of the Dimera Group of Companies, will continue to operate until the end of 2016. Renovation works will begin in the meantime with the hotel re-opening to the public in April 2017.
