Hiding room of the Greek blues singer Markos Vamvakaris. Built on a rock, with a part of it visible inside the room, invites you to relax and enjoy the serenity.

The space

Hiding room of the Greek blues singer Markos Vamvakaris. Legend has it, that since Vamvakaris -as all the rebetiko artists of the time- used to have troubles with the law, hid in the small hideout space on the rock, to avoid policemen of the time who came after him due to his illegal "habits".

We stayed at Marko's room for a couple of days this August (2016). The room itself is as special and quaint as the listing makes it out to be. At nights, it is especially quiet, with only goats' bells heard in the distance, and the little veranda at the front with the bougainvillea is especially charming, lending itself for long chitchats at low voices since there are other rooms around. The half bathroom serves its purpose well enough and there is a hose at the veranda for quick showers. The guys on the ground managing the room and Hera were available even at odd hours to help out with anything. We were very satisfied with our interaction with them. Our one and only concern was the actual location of the room. Airbnb points to a location in Papouri, a small community in Ano Meria (at the north of Syros), whereas the room is actually located at one of the entrances of Ano Syros, the second largest community in Syros, which lacks nothing in historical charm and would be very appealing to many visiting Syros, including us. We did, however, want to explore Ano Meria and were slightly disappointed that the location was logged incorrectly. This, however, can be rectified very easily we expect. Other than that, we would recommend this room without any hesitation to anyone looking to enjoy Ano Syros in a quaint little room, built in the traditional Cycladic style of yore, and who would not shy away from a hose shower in the veranda :) We would like to thank Hera for all her attention during our stay.

We spent two nights in Marko's room and were very pleased with it. Cozy, clean and with a traditional atmosphere, wonderful view from the terrace and calm surroundings. It was a perfect way to enjoy the beauty and peace of Ano Siros. Our host was very friendly, helpful and easy to get in touch with, even with last minute issues.

Ira was a great host. Not only did she make sure my stay was comfortable in her lovely and peaceful house, she included me in her social life, and made sure my stay in Syros was peaceful and relaxing. The house was lovely, quiet, clean and full of character, and when I go to Syros again I would not hesitate to book. Thanks to Ira my visit was all that I hoped for and more.
