A true seafront jewel in the heart of Thessaloniki with unobstructed views of Thermaikos bay, ON Residence is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and offers 60 lavishly designed rooms and suites, the restaurant "Olympos Naoussa" on the ground floor along with a beautiful inner courtyard, the cocktail bar “Tiger Loop”, a modern gym, and a specially designed mezzanine ideal for business meetings and events.
The property that houses ON Residence was built in 1926 and is a typical example of Thessaloniki’s eclecticism architecture during the interwar period, with elements reminiscent of Belle Époque and neoclassicism.
The preservation of the building's façade and decorative elements were key elements of the construction process. All the features that made the building so unique were resurfaced and carefully combined with contemporary elements, always aiming towards a harmonious coexistence. The interior design has a modern classic - art deco style, enriched with subtle luxury, matching the character of the building.
The reception's design was inspired by the 50s, using elements such as velvet, wood and brass. In the rooms, classic design meets calm luxury with soft, natural colour tones and touches of light pink and green. High quality materials and bold designs on the carpets complete a timeless chic backdrop. Amenities such as Marshall speakers, Nespresso coffee machines and 55-inch televisions set the tone for ON Residence.
The imposing mansion was designed by the architect Jacques Mosse in 1926. It is a jewel of the eclecticism of the first decades of the 20th century, with decorative elements and architectural forms that go back to the belle époque and the neoclassicism periods. Almost a decade previously, in 1917, Thessaloniki suffered a catastrophic fire, and the whole city was rebuilt in such a way that it would become the capital of the Balkans again. With this mindset, the entire city aimed to return stronger and better. And it did.
In this wonderful mansion, Thessaloniki welcomed a brewery named Naoussa that soon became the talk of the town and a legend to locals and visitors alike. The upper floor accommodated the offices/headquarters of Olympos, a leading ice-making company. Olympos Naoussa was meant as the emblematic synergy for the city of Thessaloniki and went down in history as a symbol for the elite and the gastronomy of the city and beyond. The chefs brought their passion to every dish, and the high society of each epoch shaped the world as we know it.
From a brewery in its beginnings, a variety show in 1942, a restaurant with dancing in 1957 and a classic restaurant associated with the city’s social, secular and business life, Olympos Naoussa was the most mythical restaurant that Thessaloniki gave birth to and historically was the one that expressed the city’s rich food culture. In its unpretentious history, Olympos Naoussa connected Thessaloniki with top-quality gastronomy and ultimate elegance, creating a landmark of fine dining and living, an exceptional destination in Europe.
After closing its doors at the end of the 90s, Olympos Naoussa now returns on the ground floor of ON Residence to embrace once more the spirit of our times.
ON Residence reflects today's luxury hospitality, keeping high-end gastronomy as a treasure under the pillow. The glorious mansion is still an architectural jewel, and has now been fully renovated with total respect for its unique identity and design. A new majestic property on top offers eclectic luxury in its 60 suites and rooms. Classic and modern come together to enrich the city's past that shaped the present.
