The imposing main building of the Syrou Melathron Hotel was built in Vaporia, the aristocratic district of the capital Ermoupolis in 1857. Most of its neoclassical architecture including the wonderful Parian marble and wooden carved eaves have been preserved. 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 Syrou Melathron is the perfect retreat for those wishing to explore Syros' sights, as it is located just a few meters away from the beautiful Cathedral of St. Nicholas and the Apollo Theatre - a miniature of La Scala Theatre in Milan. Only a stone's throw away is 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 Town Hall designed by the great architect Ernest Ziller.
