About Us
Our History
The hotel “ERMIONION” is one of the few monuments of urban architecture in the city. The building was constructed in 1931 – 32, after a study and an architectural design for hotel use, by the engineer Max Rubens. The project began with the order and funding of the owners of the plot and the company Petros and Elias, sons of Konstantinos Vamvakas. From an architectural point of view, it is an eclectic typical building of the period 1920 – 1930 with influences perhaps from Thessaloniki or abroad, according to the electronic archive of listed buildings and settlements of the Ministry of Environment, Physical Planning and Public Works, which was created and put into operation recently.
The history of the building is intertwined with the history of Kozani for more than half a century and inextricably linked to important economic, political and social events. The hotel served business representatives, civil servants, passing travelers and city travelers. Nikis Square, the central square of the city in which the building dominates, is the pulsating heart of Kozani not only in the political but also in the cultural sector.
Large political gatherings, demanding rallies of workers and students, parades and laying of wreaths on national anniversaries, the central folklore events of the Carnival and the service of the Resurrection of the Holy Saturday are held here. The hotel is a witness to all the important events that take place in the square. The king of Albania, Ahmet Ziogou, also stayed in the HERMIONIO Hotel in May 1939, who fled to Kozani after the Italian invasion of Albania, having with him the treasury of his country, as the Kozanian researcher and writer George Pafilis informs us.
The hotel
Ermionio is a historic building, of European Cultural Heritage, built in 1930 in the center of Kozani. It has occasionally hosted kings, heads of state, prime ministers and other historical figures.

It is renovated and operates as a 5 * hotel, the only one in the area. Ιts luxurious rooms and suites are also provided with a personal computer, an adsl internet connection, an autonomous satellite connection, a flat tv and a hot tub, in addition to the usual amenities. In Ermionio you can also find a cafe brasserie, a bar and a roof garden, overlooking the main square of the city.

In every area of the building it is available a wireless internet connection (Wi-Fi). For the greater safety of your vehicles, we have parking spaces in a private underground parking. The building, after being declared a preservable building in 1986, is currently being repaired with the aim of reusing it as a hotel, by the descendants of the original owners. It is interesting that the small dome that the original study envisaged, but was not executed then, obviously due to technical difficulties or high costs, has built lately in the central corner of the top floor.

While the future of the building was pending, interest was expressed and an unsuccessful effort was made by the Municipality of Kozani, so that the building could become its property, in order to be saved.
