“superb symi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Just returned from our holiday on the beautful island of Symi (our 30th Greek island). We stayed at the anastasia apartments up in the chorio. Superbly placed for the view over Pedi beach. Our room (number 2) was slightly on the small size but ideal for what we wanted. Well positioned for local tavernas, bars, bakery and mini markets. Sadly the local museum was closed for re-furb. Not far from the apartments are the infamous steps down to the lovely harbour area (Yialos), we took @ 8 mins to go down and @ 10 mins to climb back up. There is a regular bus service running up and down 'the hill' and also to pedi beach. We found prices in chorio and yialis to be about the same, eating out was superb and we found the Neridia taverna (at the rear of the harbour area) and the Odyssia (near the boat yard) to be excellent.
A special mention to the Sunrise Bar, owned by Kevin and Claudia, well situated for our apartments, always a smiling face and advice if requested. Open early and late if desired - a superb oasis. All being well we will return.

The Anastasia appartments are basic but comfortable, with adequate facilities.The owner lives just across the way and when we had a problem with our shower it was dealt with immediately. The best thing about these appartments though is the stunning view across to Pedi beach and the old town. The locals live in this area and are very friendly and welcoming.It was a refreshing change to get away from the touristy area! You do need to be fairly fit to stay here though as it's very high up and the Kali Strata stairs take some getting used to.
The Sunrise Bar just along the road is a great place and we went there almost every night.

We stayed in the 2-3 bed apartment room 5 and had a fantastic time. The balcony does get the sun all day but had just a nice bit of shade in the corner for a comfortable morning breakfast. There is not much I can add to Gemma's review, other than we enjoyed feeding the sparrows in the morning with left over bread from the previous nights taverna. Taverna wise, we really enjoyed Merekalis, Georgios, Syllogos, Neraida and Tholos - but we never had a bad meal anywhere. Horio provides a peaceful alternative to Yialos and I am glad we chose to stay at The Anastasia - we felt we were living amongst locals including the odd cockrel and donkey too. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 5 apartment for 2-3 has the largest and most private balcony

I stayed at the Anastasia Apartments in Horio for a week at the end of September. After staying at the Irini on 2 occasions I initially missed the fabulous harbour views from the Irini but soon got used to waking up to the beautiful views of Pedi Bay and Horio. I stayed in Apartment 5 which is on the top floor and has a large balcony/terrace which runs the full length of the apartment and has stunning views of Pedi Bay to the left and Horio to the right. Due to its location it has sun virtually all day long. The bedroom area is fairly small with 2 single beds and a bedside table but the lounge/kitchen area is large and spacious. There is a breakfast bar with high stools, a coffee table and another small table/magazine rack. The wardrobe is in the lounge area and there is a long sofa/settee. The kitchen area is equipped with a fridge, a small oven with 2 rings on top (which I didn’t use) and an electric kettle. There were plenty of plates, breakfast dishes, mugs, glasses etc. The bathroom had a small bath with a hand held shower and no shower curtain which did mean the water went all over if you were washing your hair but that’s often the case in Greece. The main thing lacking IMHO was a decent mirror in the lounge or bedroom area as the only mirror was in the bathroom cabinet.

Anastasia, the friendly apartment owner, lives immediately behind the apartments and is on hand when required. When I arrived the light on my balcony wasn’t working. I told Anastasia about this and it was fixed the following day.

I really enjoyed being close to the centre of Horio with the supermarket and restaurants only a few minutes walk away and the friendly Sunrise Bar within staggering distance. Kev and Claudia made me very welcome and it was nice to meet up with some of their regulars. The harbour with a choice of bars, shops and restaurants is only ten minutes walk away at the bottom of the Kali Strata and there is always the Symi bus if you don’t fancy walking up the 300+ steps on the return.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Anastasia and would definitely stay there again.
