Built in 1870 as the Ottoman Post Office of Thessaloniki, Greece’s second city, the two-story luxurious Bristol Hotel was meticulously renovated in 2000 by Lena Capsis. Located in the heart of Thessaloniki’s historical district, the hotel carries the Bristol name with a sense of mystery and pride. An estimated 250 hotels carry the Bristol name worldwide, with the name said to originate from a legendary 18th Century figure, Frederick Augustus Hervey, the 4th Earl of Bristol, who traveled the world and whose title became synonymous with the best hospitality money could buy. The Capsis Bristol Hotel certainly lives up to its name.Hotel Highlights: The hotel encapsulates the refinement of 19th century Macedonia with echoes of an opulent, Ottoman presence reflected in a spectacular marble staircase that links a glorious reception to 16 elegant rooms and 4 suites on the upper floor, complete with fine furnishings, antiques, handmade oriental carpets, hardwood floors and handcrafted furniture. A sunlit atrium decorated with original wall paintings and a fine dining restaurant and bistro bar creates the perfect atmosphere for those who appreciate the fine art of luxurious living.
