This is not a hotel in the way that some people would expect a hotel to be. No reception, no restaurant, no meals, no porters, no concierge and so on. What it actually is is a group of houses converted to provide bedroom accommodation. It's more in the style of a B&B, but again, without breakfast. Unless you're the type who really craves or needs all those "real hotel" facilities I wouldn't let any of this bother you. The Ethrion provides first rate accommodation in a very good location, and is run by a very amiable and helpful host (George).
The rooms were very clean and spacious, had air conditioning that worked perfectly, a fridge and had a small balcony with a nice view out over the harbour. Outside is a small courtyard/garden where you can sit and relax, read or eat your (own provided) breakfast/lunch etc.
The location is a little way up a side street that opens directly on to the harbour front, close to the ferry stop and the bus stop and a short walk from the shopping district and main square. There was never a hint of noise by day or by night and a good night's sleep was assured!
I can't fault the Ethrion in any way, nor indeed Syros which became our favourite island destination.
