The restoration team stayed true to the original architecture of the façade and preserved various elements such as the balconies made of Parian marble, the ornate ceilings, the forged stairs and balconies’ railings, the archaic gables and wooden-carved eaves.
The lobby, the Roof Garden and the 18 guest rooms – 10 of which face the sea –take their cues from the opulent 19th century era. They are furnished and decorated with elegance and style: quality fabrics, fine furniture, marble bathrooms.
Welcome to syrou melathron
The imposing neoclassical mansion of Surou Melathron is situated in Vaporia, the most aristocratic district of Ermoupolis home to three generations of wealthy merchants, ship owners and bankers. The colorful manors, built at the edge of the rocks right above the water, will remind you of Venice. This privileged view from your balconied room and common areas, is one of the many reasons to choose this special hideaway with the storied history.
The Melathron residence dates back to 1857 and in 1988, was officially listed as a historic monument.
Guest rooms & Services
Over the years the admirable guest house expanded in two buildings. The owners cautiously adapted Syrou Melathron to the needs of contemporary travelers. Nowadays the well-located, old-world-meets-new estate features also a number of refurbished rooms with a modern, more minimalistic touch, alongside the more classic ones, offering guests a rich palate of choices.The aristocratic lobby and the stellar Roof Garden where breakfast is served during summer, are stunning -a memorable experience for every visitor! The former, featuring an impressive ornate ceiling, windows overlooking the sea, antique chandeliers, elegant classic decoration and furniture, is reminiscent of a grand neoclassic salon of the 19th century.
The later …well, most people will agree that is simply the most privileged Roof Garden in Ermoupolis! Spacious, filled with plants and aromatic herbs, boasts grandiose views to the sea and the picture-perfect Vaporia neighborhood. Spread along the skyline are the nearby Cycladic islands of Mykonos, Tinos, Naxos and Paros. Passing by ships add more magic to the scenery.
Last but not least is the service. Friendly and casual, following the true meaning of the Greek Philoxenia (hospitality) it aims at making you feel at home.
Dedicated to offering new services, in the summer of 2022 we opened the doors of our breakfast area making it an elegant Take Away spot.
It offers quality coffee, fresh juices and snacks. Passing by visitors along with guests, can enjoy the cool open-air space on the pavement featuring views to the sea. A cozy hangout to make a pause while exploring the Vaporia area.
This is our story, in brief. Should you choose to stay with us, you are welcome to browse coffee table books and admire the black and white pictures of this neoclassical treasure.
And unfold the story in your own way…
Our Roof Garden is the perfect spot to start your day with a generous breakfast, while unfolding & enjoying the sea breeze.
