Ermoupolis Mansion

Public areas of the hotel

The living room

On coming through the mansion’s main entrance, you are ushered into the Living Room, the mansion’s pride and joy. Its signature decoration is its iconic ceiling fresco mentioned in all books on the architecture and ceiling frescoes of Hermoupolis.

The entire space alludes to the 19th century when opulence went hand in hand with antique furniture that reached Syros from France and Belgium to decorate the island’s mansions. Rare commode furniture pieces, elegant tables and superbly crafted recliners are everywhere around the Living Room to let you relax and take you back to an era gone by. The paintings hanging on the walls are veritable works of art and are led by the prominent masterpieces by excellent painter and friend Mr. Achilleas Drougkas and one of a kind artist Mr. Michalis Makroulakis who lives and creates in Syros.

The Living Room has a spacious sitting area where you can enjoy your coffee, read your book, or sip a glass of the local traditional Fabrica wine before your evening outing.

The dining room & spacious, covered veranda

The space of the dining room is the continuation of the Hermoupolis Mansion’s traditional kitchen quarters where our staff prepares the breakfast delicacies served buffet-style in the dining room. It is decorated with vintage furniture, paintings, and objets d’art as it befits such a stately space. Our guests will delight in our coveted, built-in vintage buffet which was found in the mansion during the renovation project and was promptly refurbished. We now use it to keep our own invaluable treasures: Porcelain dinnerware and silverware purchased at the antique and vintage stores of Hermoupolis!

Our Dining Room area lets out onto a large, covered veranda whose roof features a beehive pattern. Along with its columns and domes, the veranda is a great historical place where you can enjoy carefree moments, a hearty breakfast, and a great cup of coffee, your day’s exciting sightseeing agenda, and acquaint yourselves with the rest of our guests.

The 3 wells area

It was during our mansion’s restoration project that the three wells were discovered right in the center of the old mansion. History has it that, in 1850, when the mansion was built by Mr. Kaisaras, a prominent lawyer of the times, Syros, just like the rest of the Cyclades Islands, had severe water supply issues, making it crucial for a family’s sustainability to have a well or water reservoir on the premises. Hence, the three, old marble wells found at a spot which had once served as the mansion’s laundry room and outer courtyard. All three have stone-built domes. Two of them served as wells for drawing water, and the third one was used as a reservoir where the rainwater collected from the mansion’s terraces was stored.

This space now offers our guests a unique experience: Since the place features an old dining room surrounded by the three wells, it is the ideal spot for taking your breakfast during the winter months, having your gatherings, and playing table games or cards with your friends. The wells’ old pumps, and a collection of vintage objects found within the mansion are the décor of this charming nook.

Living room with TV

Our philosophy on hospitality made us decide to leave our two Deluxe Rooms on the upper floor without any television sets to help you immerse yourself in your historical surroundings.

Still, you can enjoy your favorite television show in our Living Room or leaf through the rare editions on our bookshelves, with the three, marble wells as your backdrop.

Sink into our inviting couch and become one with the ambience of yore!

  • Mrs. Rania and her husband are by far the best host you can get! Both of them are very kind and helpfull – they provided us with a lot of information about beaches, restaurants, theatre / concerts etc. and each restaurant and beach bar we visited suggested by them, was amazing! Moreover, they will also arrange the reservations for you and will do anything to make your stay unforgettable!

  • The lovely hostess welcomes you into her beautiful house and takes very good care of you. If you have the chance to stay here, take it! She will tell you about the beautiful island, the house, help you with anything you need and make you an excellent breakfast in the morning. Definitely rent a car and go around the island.

  • As a demanding traveler myself, I found everything I could ask for at this mansion. The room was fully equipped with top products(sheets, bath soaps). Breakfast was also really good with a variety of goodies to choose from. The general area around the hotel is very picturesque with breathtaking view just a few meters away. Finally, the true asset of the mansion is its hostess Rania who made sure I had a perfect stay.

  • Staying at Rania’s mansion gave us the full and best experience anyone could get from the town! Everything at the mansion will give you the impression you are at the 19th century with all the amenities and luxuries of the 21st century. Proper and clean, comfortable, the room made us feel at ease. The breakfast area was very picturesque and the breakfast itself was perfect full of Greek and European delicacies! This place is for those that demand nothing but perfection for their holidays!

  • This is the best hotel out of all I have ever been to. Residing in an old neoclassical building it still keeps the spirit in every detail! You will not be able to stop taking pictures! But what really makes this place a home is the host – Rania! She will take care of you from a taxi pick up at the port (recommended!!) to a cultural session every morning at breakfast. Asking you about your plans, recommending the best, arranging tickets, while making an extra coffee for you! Increadible family atmosphere, care and real Greek hospitality! I would come here for my wedding for sure…
