The Old markets are really different to anywhere else in Symi. One of the highlights for me was Andrew, who is a fantastic host. He met us at the port and gave us a wealth of information about beaches, restaurants and even the best dishes at said restaurants. Andrew has restored this building almost from scratch and has decorated the... More

This is not only the best (by far) hotel in Symi but also one of the finest small hotels one can find in the greek islands. It is unique and like Symi maybe is not cut our for everyone. The owner, Andrew, is charming and knowledgable and more important is super chic (in this simple but very noticeable way). All... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the Venetian Room and would throughly recommend the hotel to anyone visiting the gorgeous island of Symi. Andrew met us off the ferry from Rhodes and led us to the hotel via a 5 min walk. He helped us plan our 2 days/nights and took care of restaurant reservations for us. Our room was... More

We were spending our vacation in Rhodes where we booked a cruise to Symi. After 2 hours, everyone was amazed by the beauty of this island from distance. Beautiful houses built in the same architectural style, so close one another that there is no access by car to these houses.The only way is to climb stairs. We spent the entire... More

We have just returned home to cold Adelaide after 3 amazing nights at The Old Markets in Symi. I had been really looking forward to this place after finding it on the net some time ago and we were not disappointed. Andrew met us upon our arrival from Rhodes and promptly gathered up our cases for the walk around the... More

We have just returned after a five-night stay at the lovely Old Markets in Symi. The hotel is an old local market which has been refurbished to high standards whilst respecting the original building. The rooms are relatively spacious and comfortable but there are a couple of snags. The most major one is that although the hotel is a few... More

This place is fabulous, more than a boutique hotel, it is true luxury, it is a historic treasure, a haven of comfort, elegance and peace. A restored agora in the beautiful historic port of Symi, I stayed in two rooms, the Ottoman Room in the stone courtyard, it is cosy, cool, the bathroom is an old bakers oven, then I... More

We are going to Symi every year for four years now and this year we managed to get a room at the Old Markets!! It made our stay even better, very relaxing and so comfortable. The view from the restaurant / bar is breathtaking. Every single little detail makes you feel good. We loved it and highly recommend it.

Just checked out of the Old Markets hotel in Symi Greece. The hotel is truly one of the most unique boutique hotels that I have had the pleasure of staying. Andrew, the owner, was amazingly helpful providing us with invaluable advice on where to dine in Symi and other things to see here. His advice truly helped make our vacation... More
