Ermoupolis is an elegant city of steps, not roads. The further one ascends from the bustling streets near the port, the quieter the neighborhood is likely to be, at least until one arrives at one of the few large roads that skirt the town. The Hotel Omiros is in a peaceful and atmospheric corner not far from the stunning square at the heart of the city. Its most prominent neighbor is a remarkable Greek Orthodox church that tolls the hours and half hours. The hotel is itself elegant and atmospheric and simple; the rooms are spacious, comfortable, and quiet. It's true that the rooms in front are nicer than some of the smaller and darker rooms in back. There is nothing trendy about the Omiros, and, yes, -- to address one of the previous posts -- it's probably a lousy place to bring kids who are still in prams. (Like the rest of the city, the hotel observes the afternoon siesta and maintains quiet.) I would and will recommend the hotel to any friend who doesn't mind climbing stairs to get home and who is in search of a civilized place to stay in the heart of a great and fascinating small city. If your priorities include suburban comforts and parking, stay away. If you seek a hotel in the midst of a wonderful city where even the tourists are Greeks, in walking distance to a striking array of restaurants, bars, and atmospheric neighborhoods, you will not be disappointed. I hope to return.
