We booked this hotel after reading TA reviews. It wasn't our first choice (a friend had recommended another place) but we couldn't be more happy about changing our minds. We loved this hotel and it's room rate was much lower than the one we lodged at on Mykonos and twice as good.
The room we had was enormous, beautifully furnished with a superb sea view. Oh and the highest ceiling I've ever seen any in hotel we have lodged in. The hotel's large outside terrace overlooking the ocean is superb, has a small bar and also a few sunbeds to let you rest in the sun. We felt this part of the hotel was its jewel in the crown.
The reception staff were extremely professional and courteous without being intrusive. As this was our first visit to Syros they were very, very helpful in giving us recommendations of where to visit and also where to eat. Hotel breakfast is served to you in your room and we enjoyed it very much. The hotle's Wi-Fi signal is strong.
The location of the Apollonion is excellent and from it you could walk around the city very easily. We fell in love with Hermoupolis and it's architecture and without doubt we will be back. Also without doubt we will lodge at this hotel but this is my only very small criticism. We wish to book for specific dates in September 2018 using their own online system but the only rooms being sold at the moment are up until June next year.
Finally, if you'd enjoy a beautiful city with few tourists and a hotel that works hard at making you feel special we recommend you visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Apollonion palace hotel is housed in a historic 19th century neoclassical building, completely renovated in 2009 and fully restored to its original architectural form. Built in five levels, its foundations touch the sea. It overlooks the bay of Ag. Nicholas in the "Vaporia", area while its main entrance is right on the prestigious Apollonos Street. It is located a few steps from the imposing Church of St. Nicholas, the patron saint of Hermoupolis, the Apollo Theater and the Hermoupolis Town-Hall, a famous work of Ziller. During the last century it served as a home of prominent Syrians, while in 1996 it was bought by M.N. Captain Emmanuel Halaris, owner of "Halaris Hotels S.A.", Who spared no labour and cost to give Ermoupolis this unique 5-star hotel, which was missing from the island. The building's aesthetic is based on Hermoupolis' neoclassical flair. The magnificent terrace on the east side of the building, ideal for weddings, receptions, a glass of ouzo and musings in the moonlight, and the smaller terrace with access to the sea for swimming, offer a feeling of total relaxation. ... more less
