We stayed here 4 nights and I am glad we did. It is a short 6 mins walk around the harbor (to what seems to be the quieter side) from the ferry and up 2 sets of stairs. The entrance is tucked away but once you walk through reception you realize how big the place is. The terrace has phenomenal... More

This is the sort of place for people who want a relaxed, charming and sophisticated location. It faultlessly delivers superb accommodation, great food (and a really great Limoncello!) and just the right level of service. It will be a simple decision to return next year......

I loved the hotel. I loved the service. I loved Symi. A special place. Andy will make sure your experience is just perfect. Your own day bed to lounge around on. A sunset cocktail to pick yourself up after a day on the beach. I recommend an Espresso Martini whilst warming your face with the last of the day's sunshine...

Charm, history, comfort - can't speak highly enough of our stay with Andrew and his lovely team at The Old Markets, Symi. Andrew makes sure all his guests receive his personal attention - nothing is too much trouble. The property is beautifully restored, stylish and super comfortable. So many fabulous touches.... You have to experience it first hand. My husband... More

We spent a wonderful 8 days in the "Symi Suite" and from the moment we stepped off the ferry the entire holiday and accommodation were perfection. Andrew the proprietor and his staff couldn't have made us feel more welcome, assisting with luggage and providing welcoming drinks. Our room was beautiful and spacious opening onto the outdoor area where we and... More

The Old Market Hotel is a slice of Brideshead Revisited brought to life in the 21st century. And I'm thinking here of the best parts of that wonderful book. The between the war years when everything was jolly and fun and wonderfully, wonderfully elegant. The rooms are a tastefully respectful refurbishment of an historic building. We didn't have the pleasure... More

Spent a few nights in what is absolutely the most unique hotel I've experienced, anywhere. If you're visiting with your other half, a night at The Old Markets will transport you into a bygone age and leave you feeling pampered, relaxed and full of the spirit of romance. It's no exaggeration to say the room, service and breakfasts left us... More

The amount of care and effort the owner invested in restoring this building from an old ruin into a stylish hotel has paid off, as the result is truly impressive. The location, amenities (we particularly loved the view from the terrace bar), design, service and hospitality all add up to a wonderful experience. Highly recommended!

The care taken in restoring this ancient ruin into a boutique hotel which is a triumph of luxurious hospitality is to be loudly applauded. The proprietors certainly understand how to satisfy the dreams and high expectations of today's experienced travelers. The Old Markets transcends the hyperbole of pr speak; after one visit be assured my friends and I yearn to... More

Can't recommend this place highly enough. Stayed in the Arabian room which was beautiful - really well appointed, incredibly comfortable bed. Roof terrace has fabulous views, wonderful champagne breakfast every day and the service is fantastic - the owner Andrew organised all our restaurant bookings, advised on best beaches etc. Wonderful!
