Stayed at Akros Oreon in July of 2011. On arrival we were greeted by Georgios broad smile and aroma of wonderful dinner being cooked by Anna. They are such warm and hospitable hosts! We were taken care of as if we were their family members.
The apartment on the second floor was clean, cozy and spacious with a fireplace, TV, small kitchenette, with a huge terrace and amazing view to Kato Symi – a small village nearby. Stone houses keep cool and you don’t even need air-conditioning in summer. Well-maintained hotel environment, a lot of plants and surrounding pines make the place look as part of the mountainous landscape.
I would recommend this accommodation only to those whose seek quiet, seclusion and wish to explore the island on their own or spend their time hiking in the mountains.
