Reviewed September 11, 2012

This lovely guesthouse was originally the French embassy on Syros and has been beautifully restored and converted to provide 3 really spacious suites with great views and 3 double rooms. It is a fily run guesthouse with really helpful owners and delicious breakfasts. We wished we had come here rather than spending our first night in the Cyclades in less lovely Mykonos.

This is a great guesthouse in one of the best locations in Hermoupolis. Lila and Dimitri welcomed us to their guesthouse as old friends. The personalised service we received from the hosts exceeded our expectations. The breakfast is tasty and delicious and the rooms extremely comfortable. We cannot wait to return here at the earliest opportunity. Thank you Lila and Dimitri. Your cheesecake is simply the best!!

Lila has turned the old french consulate in Syros town into the most delightful guesthouse! With only six carefully decorated rooms and a cozy breakfast-lobby she and her husband Dimitri ensures all their guests are taken well care of when visting. Our first welcoming feeling, we got two weeks before arrival - via email (!). I sent her a mail asking her how to get to the guesthouse in the easiest way when we arrived with the ferry - by foot or by taxi? Her short reply was; "I will meet you at the port". And so she did. And even though the port is less than a three minutes walk away - we very much appreciated her coming to pick us up, as this was our first visit to the island. (You soon find your way around in the narrow streets and steps of Syros town - but at first sight it may seem a little confusing). We very soon discovered that we were taken well care of in Lilas welcoming hands!
The guesthouse has an excellent location in the middle of Ermoupolis steps and narrow streets - hard to reach by car so using the bus or a taxi to get around the island is a good advice. The front door of our room was actually directly into the narrow street, so understandably there is no space for a balcony. But believe me, with the very close proximity to the Platia (the main square), and to all the cafes and restaurants in the town and on the port - you really dont need one! Despite the very central location, we found it to be ever so relaxed and peaceful with hardly any noise from the street at all - right in the middle of town.
The rooms are spacious, and equipped with a kitchenette, refridgerator, ironing board, iron, drying rack, and small sofa. Our room also had a loft with an extra bed - which made it perfect for three persons. Dimitri was up early every morning and served breakfast - and gave all the helpful information we needed to get around the island.
This place has a very high level of personal atmosphere - created by Lila and Dimitri - and will be highly recommended!

Room Tip: As there are only six rooms - make sure to book your stay way in advance, or you won´t be able to ge...

Lila's Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay in Syros. You still have the feeling of home when you stay in this lovely B&B. The hosts gave us a warm welcome and they are very kind and helpfull. The breakfast is delicious and the rooms are cosy, large and clean. The beds are really good and made us sleep as cinderella! It all looks still new, so I was surprised when they said it was already opened in 2003.
It is the perfect location for exploring Ermoupolis on foot.

My friends and I fell in love with everything about beautiful, picturesque Ermoupolis, Syros, starting with our wonderful room at Lila's Guesthouse. It was beautifully decorated in a clean, modern style while being located in a historic former French Embassy building. Lila's Guesthouse is in the perfect location for exploring the town on foot, which made for a magical day. Would love to return!
