The Best Hotels in Syros are mostly located in the capital town of the island called Ermoupoli which is famous for its luxurious architecture of the 19th century. The island has some decent sandy beaches such as Kini and Galissas with some family friendly hotels options along with a picturesque town called Ano Syros, that many people call Oia’s little sister village.

BUT ALSO CHECK:
Syros used to be one of the most important industrial and commercial centres of Greece, with its luxurious neoclassical capital of Ermoupoli being home to some of the richest people in Greece back in the late 1800’s. Syros has one of the largest shipyards in Greece at Neorio, but it is now a renowned destination for people who are looking for a different island in Cyclades with unique architecture and history.
Syros island is pretty close to Athens and you can reach it by ferry only within 2 hours. There is an airport in Syros island but it only operates flights between Syros and Athens. It’s not worth taking this 35 minutes flight to Syros as you will be faster on the island (from Athens) if you include the time before the flight that you need to be at the airport. (always check Ferryhopper for the latest ferry schedules).

I think you’d be better off by renting a car in Syros, as you will have more flexibility to explore the island but it’s not necessary in my opinion and a taxi or the local bus should be ok.
