The Hotel Samaria was an excellent place to spend a week in Chania. The hotel is very modern and, I believe, very new, only constructed in the last couple of years. The rooms are smallish, but very comfortable. The showers are marble with "rain shower" shower heads. The hotel features an excellent bar and restaurant and is only walking distance...

This hotel has excellent service. The staff are attentive and extremely helpful. Rooms are impeccably clean, stylish and comfortable. There is a well-stocked bar on the first floor. The breakfast buffet is hearty with a large variety.

I didn't choose this hotel. It was arranged by my business partner in Chania. But it was a pleasure and a surprise to stay there, so much that I'd like very much to go again and again! I arrived early in the morning, since most Creta flights do so, but the hotel reception arranged for me to have something to...

This recently renovated 4 star hotel is situated in the heart of the new town of Chania, just a walk away the old town of the city. It offers many facilities such as free parking area, open pool (yet quite small), a very cosy bistro bar. Double rooms aren't large yet they have a small balcony (the view is not...

Lovely hotel. Great location - next to the bus station but we had no noise issues. Fairly small pool but nice surroundings and bar service to the pool. So convenient to get the service bus from the Airport right to the hotel. Walking distance - 15 - 20 minutes to the town beach where there are sunbeds, brollies and great...

I have recently stayed here a number of times on business-type trips. The service at the hotel is amazing - they have at every stage gone out of their way to assist and accommodate. They are friendly, helpful and responsive. They have been great about late check-out and early check-in bookings, and really helped with sorting out taxis, meetings etc....

We stayed here in a penthouse superrior suite during a 10 day trip through Greece and it was by far my favorite hotel!! The service was top notch. The room was a great size and the double head rain showers is officially my dream shower for my next home. The housekeepers were great and they ensured that the room remained...

I go to Chania on business approximately 3-4 times a year and i always stay at this hotel. The rooms are very modern and comfortable and the bed mattress is the best ever! The location is also very good next to the KTEL bus station and 2 min walk from the city centre and the shops. There is a nice...

Clean. Modern style. Lovely, helpful staff. Good access point for town and outside. Parking available in secure private Carpark. Pool is small and, as it's a focal point for the hotel, it feels very public. Really enjoyed the nights there. Would definitely stay there again.
