Housed in a 19th-century seafront neoclassical mansion, known as the “Mastoridis Mansion”, the 1900 Hotel is a space where time stands still. Its signature aesthetic can be described as nostalgic yet contemporary through an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, high-painted ceilings, and unobstructed views of the colorful harbor of Symi. The original structure was left almost intact, while through architect’s Dimitris Zografos careful restoration, the architectural gem kept its heritage alive, offering guests the opportunity to relive a modern version of its history. Making minor modifications to allow the adaptation of the building to its new use as a hotel, the architect chose to preserve aspects of the historic building to indicate the structure’s age. Walking through the interiors, guests can feel the heavenly allure of a bygone era, where architecture and history interact in a timeless atmosphere. Some of the building’s original walls and floor joists were left exposed, highlighting the historical nature of the space. The main rooms of the house were transformed into four elegant suites soaked in history. Two bars on each level of the mansion add an extra touch to guests’ intimate moments. On the entrance level, there is a courtyard surrounded by lush greenery, framing the Aegean blue. The 1900 Hotel is a place that, once visited, can be hardly forgotten.
