The imposing main building of the hotel was built in Vaporia, the aristocratic district of the capital Ermoupolis, during the 19th century (1857). Fans of neo-classical beauty are impressed by it as it has been preserved and most of it has been kept intact with its balconies of Parian marble, the unique antefixes, archaic gables and wooden-carved eaves still present. In 1988, the building was officially declared a historical monument, and over the years it has been expanded and has adapted to the needs of the modern era, combining the aesthetics of the 19th century with all the comforts of a contemporary hotel.
The impressive plaster ceiling paintings, the fine furniture of classic style, its careful and tasteful decoration , the modern luxury and comforts create an environment of exceptional design and comfortable accommodation for guests, whether being in its public areas or in the privacy of its rooms.
The views from the balconies and the roof garden of Syrou Melathron will offer you countless magic moments and relaxing times. The endless blue, the neighbouring islands of Mykonos, Tinos, Naxos and Paros dominating the skyline, the beautiful neighbourhood of Vaporia built on the beach resembling Venice, the unique spectacle of the sunrise during the day and the moonrise every night, the ferries passing by the front of the hotel artistically create a collage of unforgettable images.
The Syrou Melathron is the perfect retreat for those wishing to be guided around Syros' sights, as it is located just a few meters away from the beautiful Cathedral of St. Nicholas, a church characterized by its blue dome, the Apollo Theatre - a miniature of La Scala Theatre in Milan. Only a breath away, one may also find the city's central Miaoulis Square, home to the statue of the heroic Admiral Andreas Miaoulis, the marble platform of Philharmonic created by the sculptor Georgios Vitalis and the City Hall designed by the great architect Ernest Ziller.
History, aesthetics, the privileged position as well as the exemplary hospitality make the Syrou Melathron an enchanting first class hotel, ready to bewitch you whenever you may choose to visit it.
