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

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
