We chose this hotel for its location, in the center of town and walkable from the ferry port. It worked. We were able to explore the center and a little bit apart. The building appears to be a Venetian style mansion, very old. It is charming, but because it is old, it is limited: Clunky hand-held shower, tiny room with nowhere to sit our put our stuff, limited electrical outlets, and a strange TV that mysteriously came on at midnight! Oh and the breakfast was superb, served by charming staff.
Only stayed one night but wish it were longer. It's the oldest hotel on the island, so it looks like it was founded by pirates or something. SO COOL. Best air conditioning so far in my travels through the Aegean islands. Theo at the front desk was so helpful and friendly. He recommended an Italian restaurant nearby (by this time I'd had my fill of gyros) and it was one of the best meals I ever had. The beds are comfy, the place is immaculate, the ceilings in the rooms are 20 feet high! The neighborhood is buzzing with fun shops, bars and cafes. Could not have picked a better place.
I've never stayed in a hotel in Greece that seems 'old fashioned', until I visited Aktaion. It most reminded me of an English stately home, with dark wood everywhere, carpeted hallways and high ceilings. The location is superb: right on Ermopouli harbour. My room was on the first floor overlooking the port area, which made for some excellent views especially at night. The windows are well-sealed so noise from the street and cafes below wasn't an issue. The air conditioning was also good and not too noisy. The hotel does have a slightly tired feel to it though. My room was quite small and the double bed, being two singles pushed together, wasn't particularly comfortable either. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was okay, although the orange juice was very sickly and clearly from a carton not fresh. Overall it was a good hotel, but wasn't the cheapest either and I've given it 4/5 because for the money I think it could do with a bit of improvement to the decor and breakfast.…
This hotel is perfectly located for the ferry terminal (it’s a nice walk of around 10 minutes or so round the harbour) and the town square. If you leave via the rear exit, you are on the main shopping streets of Ermoupoli with many restaurants and bars nearby. At the front, there is a whole line of parasol-shaded cafes, restaurant and bars. We first stayed here for two nights a few years back, and chanced booking just prior to arrival as we had one night “spare” on Syros during our trip in September. At least, that is what we thought, until all ferries were cancelled the next day for two days due to strong winds, and we were “forced” to spend another two nights in this wonderful town. Unfortunately, not at the Aktaion though, as they had no rooms available for the following days. Our room this time was even nicer, and a bit larger than our previous stay, although both were elegant and characterful with high ceilings, and exposed stone walls with dark wood finishes and furniture. The bed was the standard double size and was very comfortable. Showers are of a generous size, and the plumbing works well, as does the ac. You may have a bit of trouble negotiating the winding staircase with your luggage, but assistance is always available for this. I think only one of the rooms has a balcony, but there is a very small balcony on the first floor overlooking the harbour, that can be used by all; but it’s just as easy to wander downstairs and outside to get the views of the harbour across to shipyard. If you have a harbour-facing room, you get good views from the windows, where you can see the ferry comings and goings. The breakfast was very good, and I don’t agree with some of the previous, negative reviews: Bread with jams and honey, toast, eggs cooked to your preference, bacon, yogurt with fruit, orange juice, very sweet biscuit / cake type things covered in honey and nuts, and as much good filter coffee as we wanted. There was certainly enough to keep you going through to the afternoon. The hotel staff are all very “smiley”, chatty and helpful. Possibly it can be a bit noisy at night, being located right above bars and restaurants on the harbour front; however, a night on the town in Ermoupoli usually means I sleep like the proverbial log, and am often oblivious to my surroundings. The glazing seems to be quite effective in reducing noise, though, if you are a light sleeper. It is neither cheap nor particularly expensive, but considering the quality of the rooms and the breakfast, it represents very good value for money.…
Syros is a fantastic island. So PROS as follows: Location at the Heart of Ermoupolis port , very kind personnel, family business, good breakfast (serviced), clean room, very good noise isolation with the windows closed. CONS: I have booked a 3 bedroom, but it was actually a 2-single beds + 1 bedsofa which was very uncomfortable to sleep. The room had wooden floor which in many part was making noise while stepping causing trouble on the baby's sleep. So for a couple is OK but for family with 2 years old baby, not very suitable room.
