Sevasti Studios and Olympic

Postby John H » 27 May 2014, 12:09

I've been to Symi many times over the last 20 years but never with Olympic, and I've not stopped at the Sevasti Studios before, but they seem to have good reviews on Tripadviser. I prefer staying in Chorio to Yialos and I know the studios are fairly high up (near the museum?) but I don't mind that. I know some of you have strong opinions about Olympic but I'm not too worried about their level of service as I know my way around Rhodes Town and Symi but I wondered if you could answer a few queries I've got?

- With a flight scheduled to land at 4.15pm would you recommend getting a taxi to the ferry rather than relying on the Olympic coach transfers? I'm assuming the ferry will be at 7.00pm.
- Do Olympic deliver luggage to the accomodation? I'm happy to make my own way from the ferry if necessary but would like to know beforehand if I need to
- Do you have a rough idea how much the air conditioning in Sevasti costs?
- Is there a fridge? Got to have some way to keep the water/yogurt/Mythos cool!

Thanks!

Hi John H,
Last year we travelled with Olympic and landed approx same time, we considered getting a tax into the docks to ensure 7pm crossing however, in the baggae area the fabulous Justine was there to inform us there was a dedicated coach going straight to the docks to ensure we met that crossing. I would suggest you wait till you arrive then when the Olypic rep meets you ask to see if theynare catching that ferry. If it's not Justine then you may be staying overnight.Olympic do deliver and collect your luggage and I would guess you get a lift too. As for the rest I am sorry but can't help you as never stayed there.

Thanks Pollychops. Is Justine based in Symi or Rhodes? I guess if she's on Symi she would want to get back herself rather than stop overnight on Rhodes.

When we arrived last Wednesday, Justine met the Olympic group and they were on the 7.00pm Dodek to Symi. I imagine there would only be a problem if the flight was delayed. Yes, Justine is based in Symi and yes, your luggage will be taken up to the village for you though I don't know how close the drop-off point will be to Sevasti studios. Have a great time!

Depends on your time of your return flight, ours was a late one and we arranged with Justine to get the last ferry crossing which gave us nearly all day in Symi.

Although Sevasti is very high up, it is a level trundle along the lane from the nearest vehicle access point at the old Lavinia Studios. It is that rare thing on Symi - really high up in the old town but with easy access :-)

Yes, Justine is a year-round Symi resident and would obviously prefer to get back home at night. More to the point, she's Olympic Holidays only employee on Symi so unless all the flights that she's expecting people off are so late they'll all miss the ferry, she's no choice but to accompany the customers who have arrived in time across to Symi and get them settled in their accommodation. There are other reps on Rhodes who look after arrivals both from delayed flights and flights that are timetabled to arrive too late to make the evening boat. These people then get taken to the ferry in the morning, given tickets, and Justine meets them when they arrive in Symi.
