“Great Apartments”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We stayed in these wonderful apartments for one week in July 2013. The apertments are excellent both in the quality of the rooms and equipment and the level of cleanliness whilst the views are to superb! We stayed on the second floor in Room 7 alongside our friends in Room 6 and would recommend Rooms 4 and 6 which are next door to one another surprisingly and both on the second floors with the best views. The owners were always most helpful and friendly and I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough if you are visiting the beautiful island of Symi. The apartments are about 10 minutes gentle walk from the clock tower and very close to the small town beach. All in all an excellent holiday in a beautiful island in great accommodation with magnificent views.

We stayed here in June 2013 after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor last year & thoroughly enjoyed it.
The acommodation is very clean, our linen was changed at least twice in 1 week (my wife reckons it was 3 times) The bed was comfortable, the A/C worked great, couldn't fault the place really.
We were in room 5 which, confusingly, was the blue & white one on the top floor left hand side.
To go to the rooms, you go up the steps at the left side of the restaurant to the first floor, where there are 3 rooms numbered 1-3.
You then cross the shared balcony from left to right then go up the steps at the right side of the property to the second floor. the rooms here are numbered 5,4,6 & 7 from left to right.
Room 5 is slightly the smaller of the rooms, but has the great advantage of being the last one, so you don't get anybody else walking past you when you are sitting drinking wine looking at the lovely view.
The place is run by Aggeliki & Manolis, who are both charming friendly people, nothing was too much trouble for them.
The area is a lot quieter than the central harbour, but its only a few minutes walk to get there from the ferry "terminal" by the clock tower.
If you want to see where Odyssia is, go to the Dodekanisos seaways website, select vessels & Panagia Skiadeni & look on the photo gallery. Pictures 3 and 5 have Odyssia in the background
Nos beach is just around the corner, and Nimborio bay about 25 mins further on.
Go on the round island boat trip. Having a barbecue on Sesklia island is great.
Can't say a lot more really, as its been said by previous reviewers.
An excellent place to stay & good value for money.
See you next June.

We LOVED Odyssia Apartments during our recent island-hopping excursion in Greece. This was by far our favorite accommodation of the whole trip. Symi, likewise, was our favorite island we visited of the whole trip. It's an absolutely picture-perfect place, with a cozy harbor filled with stunning, colorful buildings. The view from the apartment was phenomenal, and the room itself was comfortable and had all the stuff needed to cook simple meals. It's at the quieter end of the harbor, and has a more peaceful, island feel than where the ferries come in. There's a nice little beach just 3 minutes walk away from the hotel, which was so convenient. We enjoyed meeting the friendly, helpful owners and eating at the restaurant attached to the hotel. You simply can't beat the value provided by Odyssia. Our only regret was that we did not have enough time there. We will definitely return and would highly recommend a stay at Odyssia and a visit to beautiful Symi.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked great, they all have a super view.

We have stayed here twice a year almost since it was built and I cannot keep my feelings to myself any longer. Book well in advance and early to ensure availability, this is the best accommodation. The apartments and terrace is spacious and each has excellent views. The beds are very comfortable by Greek standards. The air conditioning is good ensuring each night you can enjoy a good nights sleep. Cleanliness is priority and first class. The owner is on hand whatever your needs or problem should you have one. Manolis the owner is always very obliging. The location of the apartments is good with views and a quiet area near the main harbour, a free beach within 5 minutes walk and has its own excellent taverna which I will review in places to eat as there is so much more to say about this accommodation.

We had one of the top rooms for a week in May. Everything you hope for and more, great view cross the bay, wonderful hosts, great, clean rooms that are well equiped.
Far enough from the crowds that disembark from the ferry everyday, and close to a little beach and beach cafe

Room Tip: the top 'blue' villa at the far end, I think it was number 5

We only stayed in Odyssia for one night before heading back to Rhodes Town but I wouldn't hesitate staying here again on our next trip to Symi.
Odyssia is very easy to find when you get off the ferry - just head to the right (past the Clock Tower) and follow the road around and you'll see Odyssia restaurant - the apartments are above the restaurant.
We arrived on an early ferry and even though our room wasn't ready, the owner kindly gave us access so we could drop off our bags, before exploring the area.
We stayed in room number 2 - it's huge! Lots of storage space, kitchen utensils, etc - perfect for a longer stay. There's a shared terrace at the front which overlooks the harbour which is just stunning. The room and outside area were spotless too.
We ate in the restaurant below the room that night and had a great meal - starting with some amazing local Rose wine and some fresh mussels (in an incredible tomato and feta sauce - we ordered extra bread to mop it up!) and the main course was Lobster Spaghetti to share.
All the staff at Odyssia are extremely friendly and have lots of information on the area. Based on their recommendation, we took a taxi boat to a neighbouring beach the next day and had a lovely time.

After only two days here, we are wishing we could stay for a month. The apartments were situated at the quiet end of the harbour, which was most advantageous when the cruise ships came in.
The hospitality and the quality of the service here is outstanding. Maria and Manolis took care of all our needs. The apartment was spacious, serviced every day with comfortable beds and adequate toiletries. Wifi was free in the apartment and in the restaurant. The view across the harbour was breathtaking and it was great to sit on the terrace and soak it up.
You cannot go wrong with this accommodation, but stay longer than two nights.

Room Tip: Stay as long as you can. You won't regret it!
