Housed in a stunningly restored mansion in the historical centre of Ermoupoli, the Aristide Hotel, which opened in mid-2020, combines old-world elegance with contemporary design and comforts.
The mansion, with its show-stopping marble staircase and Doric columns, is an architectural gem highlighting Greek neoclassical and art deco styles. Not to mention the open-air and garden-style terrace, with its divine luxe style furniture facing out towards the Aegean Sea, neighbouring Cycladic islands and the aristocratic neighbourhood of Vaporia.
Having been beautifully restored by its owners- from the moment guests arrive- they are able to enjoy the airy and inviting features of a grand mansion that’s been delicately filled with celebrated interior design pieces and a private art collection.
Set in the Vaporia neighbourhood, the beach is only an eight-minute walk away, as is the town centre and the imposing main square of Ermoupoli. Located near the waterfront in the heart of the city, Aristide Hotel is well placed for seeing the major sights of this elegant town, known for its neoclassical architecture and vibrant cultural scene. Syros (two hours with a fast ferry from Athens) boasts lovely beaches and a cosmopolitan lifestyle; and the hotel is close to the Industrial Museum of Ermoupoli, Miaouli Square and Neorion Shipyards.
Style & Feel
Luxurious, chic and aesthetically pleasing, the grand mansion makes you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time with stunning ornate ceilings and Doric columns, combined with contemporary furnishings, lighting, and a wonderful collection of vivid artwork on display. This old-world charm blends in beautifully with the modern materials, textures and colours used to enhance the original architecture. Greek marble is at the heart of the hotel (nine types of local marble has been used throughout) adding an opulent finish.
Having been transformed into a luxury hotel, the mansion features nine charming suites, each individual in its design. All present bright and bold colour schemes, designer furnishings and eclectic paintings on the walls. Full of character; almost all suites boast five-metre high ceilings, sea views, balconies or terraces, and private plunge pools or stone bathtubs. All suites also feature rain showers, marble bathrooms, solid oak flooring and doors, dimmable lighting and Bluetooth speakers.
Food & Drinks
The hotel offers a buffet and à la carte breakfast, champagne breakfast, and brunch, with a focus on local, seasonal and organic ingredients, and Cycladic recipes. The menu includes dishes such as Tirititim eggs, San Michali saganaki and tomato spoon sweet, or zucchini tart with yoghurt. Breakfast is served in the garden and in the evening guests are invited to the rooftop bar, with its stunning views of the sea and neighbouring islands. The cocktail menu is developed in collaboration with renowned bartender Christos Gkolfis and is focused on well-executed classics, while the wine list offers the best of Cycladic and Greek wines.
Aristides is the ideal place for guests seeking luxury, privacy, quality service and comfort. It’s also the perfect place for a romantic escape, and for those who truly appreciate design, arts and culture.
