Nestled in the heart of Symi’s elegant harbour, in its heyday, The Old Markets or Agora (meeting place) was the heart of the town, with many trades taking place within its galleria of shops.
The structure of the building has been carefully restored and repaired while the shop units have been converted to provide large, comfortable rooms preserving the original features. Each of the spacious, individually designed guest rooms is themed according to a major trading route to the Island, which historically supplied The Old Markets. The nine historic shops have been converted to provide just four spacious guest rooms. The large suite on the first floor is unrivaled with five windows which each frame a different view of the harbour.
A fine collection of artwork and antiquities are used to furnish the property. These include silver artefacts that once graced the dining table of King George I of the Hellenes and items from London’s legendary Savoy Hotel and Café de Paris. Finest percale linen and a pillow library offer guests additional comfort.
