Budget accommodation and other options

Budget accommodation in Thessaloniki

The 46th International Byron Conference takes place during the touristic summer season.  For this reason, prices for accommodation in the city centre can be quite expensive.

There are, nonetheless, a handful of mid- to low-budget hotels and hostels in the city centre with rates for about 45-50 EUR per night (if booked early). In addition, Thessaloniki offers a variety of housing options at even lower rates, depending on preferred convenience, e.g. a longer commute to the congress venue or a shared bathroom. These mid- to low-budget hotels and hostels are usually most affordable to book via their own respective web booking service or via popular hotel aggregator sites such as Booking.com.  We recommend the following:

  • Hotel Orestias Kastorias (ideal for solo travelers)
  • Tourist Hotel
  • Aegeon Hotel
  • Stay Hybrid Hostel
  • Center Travelers Hostel
