Opera House Hotel
The rather grandly named Opera House Hotel is actually a low-rise guesthouse located a short stroll from Symi town centre – though, like a diminutive soprano, it’s more than capable of belting out an aria or two (here, in the form of its punchy Crayola-coloured buildings). Rooms range from simple doubles with balconies overlooking the garden to family-friendly suites with small kitchens. The sun-dappled garden makes for a lovely place to take breakfast, or unwind with a drink after a day’s exploring. Set on a gentle step-free slope, it’s easy to access on foot or by car.
