Situated directly on the waterfront in Thessaloniki’s up-and-coming industrial harbor area, The Met Hotel blurs the lines between art gallery and luxury hotel. Installations by some of the world’s foremost contemporary artists have been handpicked for the hotel by owner Christina Chandris, while the broader design concept is centered on open spaces and fine-quality materials. The hotel features an indulgent spa, chic dining options, and the opportunity to explore an intriguing collection..
MADE BY ORIGINALS
Contemporary art fuels Christina Chandris’ passion for hospitality. Chandris, a member of Greece’s leading Chandris Hotels & Resorts group, believes that “art needs spaces, and spaces need art.” After years of building her collection while traveling, she used her accumulation of artwork to create the concept behind The Met Hotel.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Greek architect Tasos Zeppos has made a name for himself with The Met Hotel (and Fresh Hotel Athens, another Design Hotels™ member) by creating a place that straddles the fine line between luxury hotel and art gallery. While the exterior is characterized by monochromes and sharp lateral beams that point towards the harbor, the underground parking lot is Formula One-themed, epitomizing the hotel’s overall balance between functionality and style. The interior design is filled with open spaces accentuating the presence of Christina Chandris’ contemporary collection. In the rooms and suites, inspirational works—such as black-and-white originals by German photographer Ralph Baiker—are paired with high-end materials such as solid wenge floors that lead to marble- and Corian-built bathrooms.
