The story of Nefeli Hotel began in 1967, when it first opened, and attracted a number of celebrities, including Zoe Laskari, Zozo Sapountzaki, Marinela, Toli Voskopoulos, Giannis Parios, Anna Vissi, George Dalaras, and Alexis Tsipras who served as Prime Minister of Greece from 2015 to 2019, the academic Eleni Glykatzi Arveler and also Nikos Galis and Panagiotis Giannakis. The Hotel hosted a large number of Sports Teams.
Nefeli Hotel was started by Lazaros Tsomos, a second generation hosteler, in an isolated area of Thessaloniki at the time, … Panorama. His kith and kin told him “where are you going to invest”, but he, confident of his choice, proceeded to build the five-stars hotel, which had 65 rooms and five suites and was located in the … countryside, as Panorama was a holiday destination.
Nefeli” started as a small family business in the late 60’s when Panorama was a holiday destination for the people of Thessaloniki. All these years he has actively supported the local community, the labor market, entrepreneurship. During its operation, it has offered hundreds of jobs, as well as stable partnerships with a wide range of suppliers.
The name of the hotel, after all, was not accidental as it was borrowed from Nefeli (cloud), the goddess of hospitality.
