We went there first week of july 2014 for 5 days. If you want to stay in Chania, get this hotel. Rated 4 stars but absolutely a 5 star hotel. Sound prove windows, silent air-conditioning, wonderful breakfast, beautiful, warm water en clean pool. Everything was perfect! The bus station is next to the hotel but you cannot hear it.

We chose this hotel because of the many good reviews on tripadvisor. We were very impressed with the Samaria Hotel as it offers a modern 5 star accommodation in a great location for Chania town. I was very surprised to learn that the hotel hasn't been in operation very long because it feels very well-established. The room was spacious and... More

While the Samaria Hotel is not in the Old Port section of Hania (or Chania or Xania -- I wish there were more standardization in the transliteration between Greek and English; you could be standing in front of a restaurant your guidebook recommends and not know it) it is a very short stroll (through the 1866 Square) to the top...

We stayed at this hotel for 10 nights and we were completely satisfied with the location, food, nicely and newly renovated rooms, and a wonderful staff. A short 10 minute walk down to the port or the covered market, this hotel has the best location in Chania town to the tourist areas.

A big thumbs up for Samaria Hotel in Chania, probably the best in town. We stayed overnight on arrival and at the end of a fortnight travelling in Western Crete. Very well appointed rooms with classy bathrooms. We were upgraded to a suite, much appreciated. The hotel is very central with easy access to the old town of Chania, and... More

The Samaria hotel is most comfortable, probably the best hotel in Chania. The beds are excellent and the bathroom is elegant. Magnificent breakfast near the nice poolarea. The Samaria is perfectly situated in the middle of the city and close to the bus station. We really enjoyed our stay and can recommend this hotel.
