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.
