Adult only, 18+
Experience bobbing bowsprits, busy bistros and bustling shops
Tiny Symi is just a pinprick on the Aegean map, yet it’s hailed as one of the most beautiful of all the Greek Islands. The Old Markets Hotel is a jewel within the island itself.
Located in beautiful Symi harbour, this exquisitely restored property features 10 luxury rooms divided between two buildings – the Ancient Agora and the Captain’s Mansion. Together with an indoor swimming pool and tranquil harbour views, it all adds up to make The Old Markets Hotel a highly desirable and endlessly romantic holiday destination.
The hotel has also retained its historical roots. Large bedrooms preserve original features such as exposed stone archways and cave-like bathrooms. The Captain’s Mansion house includes two spacious suites with private balconies, beach and harbour views and stone fireplaces. The Agora includes an old bread oven. Meanwhile, every suite in the Captain’s Mansion incorporates a nautical theme.
To access The Old Markets Hotel, you need to climb up some steps known locally as Kali Strata, which forms the main pathway between Symi Harbour and the town of Chorio lying above it. The hotel looks after your luggage.
Once situated, you can relax knowing you’re just a short five-minute walk away from the bustling restaurants and bars below. The Archeological Museum is just three minutes away.
