The hotel has great accommodations. The hotel is quiet, clean, and located in the heart of the town. The staff was professional and courteous. The breakfast every morning was fresh and tasted good. Great restaurants and shopping are a short walk away from the hotel. The private parking is in a secure area.

Very practical location in the heart of the city, with easy access and parking, which is a necessity in Chania. Very polite staff, helpful and attentive. Room was cozy, clean and well equipped. Breakfast was very good, with good variety and taste. I absolutely recommend it

Close to the shopping, eateries and waterfront, very modern and clean in safe location. Parking wasn't a issue as found parks outside the hotel! Walking distance to everything - was a fantastic base for us girls!

The Hotel is everything a discerning traveler would expect from an upscale, professional yet friendly city hotel. Great location, right across from the 'entrance' to the old town with the... More

Just completing a wonderful stay at the Samaria Hotel. After more than 24 hours of travel from the US, I was ready for a comfortable room and a nice refreshing shower. I got both in full from my room and couldn't be more satisfied. Last year I was in Chania and stayed a different hotel not far from Samaria, a... More

My husband our daughter a female friend & myself spent 10 marvellous days in this hotel in early September. The hotel was excellent for its location to the beautiful town of Chania. Breakfast was wonderful with plenty to choose from. There wasn't anything negative we could say about the holiday.
