Odyssia Appartments: "Symi's sun trap!" Symi Hotel Tip by helenjones

Symi Hotels: 9 reviews and 21 photos

This place is just great! I couldn't recommend it more. We had a large room with a huge terrace outside overlooking the bay and, totally unlike us, we sat there for a couple of days and didn't even leave the appartment - it was perfect. Another plus point is that Odyssia is at a point on the harbour that gets the sun all day long - there is only one stretch with this advantage which is to your right as you enter the bay on the ferry. The room is only around 15 steps up from the harbourside which is perfect if you do struggle with walking for whatever reason. There are 6 or 7 rooms in total and they are immaculately clean with a maid service every day we were there (7 days). There is a hob with two rings, a fridge and everything else you need for self catering. The toilet/shower room are clean and perfectly adequate.

There is a taverna below which is run by the same people where you can have breakfast. Obviously you can also have lunch and dinner there as well as just drinks. At this point in the season it was closing around 8pm but I imagine it is open until the early hours during high season. I was able to also get the room cheaper than it should have been by talking to the owner (Aggeliki) before we departed the UK. Another plus point is that the beach around the corner (Nos Beach) is literally a two minute walk so it's easy to nip back if you forget something for the beach or if you just wanted to eat or get changed etc.

Unique Qualities: Large terrace with sun all day long.
No massive hikes up lots of steps.
Two minutes walk from nearest beach.
