This is a simple, clean hotel, operated by a nice elderly couple. It is also cheap, especially given that this is Symi we're taking about... We had one of the studios on the top floor: a double room with an extra single bed, a little sitting area with sofa, table and 2 armchairs and a kitchenette. Nicely painted wooden ceiling.... More

I stayed for 10 days this June/July (2014) and I was extremely pleased. The views over Symi harbour are amazing from the room and the private balcony of each room. The hotel is accessible by taxi (or the Symi bus) and you do not have to climb the stairs (Kali strata), but it is a pleasure to walk them down!... More

This is a jewel of a small hotel; breathtaking views over the Symi harbor, large clean rooms, nice breakfast on a veranda with great views, very good quality and variety of buffet breakfast. The location on top of the hill is perfect in the heart of the village that has a local color (as well as restaurants and cafes) rather... More

We stay at this property in September 2013. The room is quiet spacious with incredible views of the harbor. Now to get there it was a mission. 380 stairs from the harbor. For that you need to be young and feet. We didn't regret it at all. Also the price it was very good. Breakfast is a big disappointment. Don't... More

Hotel Fiona is an authentic, traditional Greek hotel that is sparkling clean with friendly owners.They love their island and are very proud of their small hotel that is perched at the top of the harbor in the village of Chorio ( which is accessible by the local bus for 1.50 euros or taxi, no more than 5 euros ) The...

Got off to a rocky start but still loved this inn. Upon our arrival the room, 20?, was a bit dirty and smelled terrible. The faucet on the kitchen sink, the room was a "studio", leaked so badly that it was unusable. We looked at another available studio, 19?, and it was truly filthy, also smelled and was not as...

Fiona was run by an older couple who kept some distance but were around when needed. Simple Greek breakfast but sufficient. (Breads with any flavour or texture seem to be hard to come by on Symi and Rhodes however, so I can't complain that the breakfast breads at Fiona were unusually plain!) The view from our upstairs window was unforgetable... More

This modest little hotel is up in the village of Chorio away from the madding crowd in Yialos. While the rooms are basic, they are spotlessly clean and have sufficient space for two adults and luggage. However I would suggest you wouldn't want to stay inside the room when there is a million dollar view from all the balconies. The... More

This hotel is at the top of the kali strata which has 384 steps, it therefore has a stunning view of the harbour in Yialos. Breakfast which consisted of cheese, ham, boiled eggs, toast, fruit and home made greek yogurt was filling for us, a family of 3. You sit for breakfast on a balcony overlooking the view. Our daughter... More

we originally booked another hotel, but out of one week of our stay, our room was available only for five nights, so we had to look for a place to stay overnight. it looked like the owners tried to squeeze every possible penny from their customers, without taking too much care. the room was not well maintained, in need of...
