We stayed two nights to hike the Samaria Gorge. The hotel staff helped us organize the transport and our way back. We were on the trail at 8:15 and had a few hours with almost no other hikers. Got back to the hotel at 8pm or so. Very relaxing, no-stress hiking day. The hotel has sandwiches to take with you. Hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable. The restaurant was very good and the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Would definitely return and use as a base for more hiking.
