This was by far the most fabulous small hotel where every detail was perfect. Manfred and Michelle are to be congratulated for all of their efforts to make this a special place in Samara. So convenient for the supermarket, 3 minutes walk, restaurants ar 5 minutes walk, beach 6 minutes walk. Room No. 7 was just great, less than a...

I stayed at the Hotel Belvedere for a few nights earlier this week, and was very pleased with my stay. The photos are an accurate representation of the current state of the hotel, so there were no surprises when we arrived. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the gardens around the property are beautifully maintained. Room 19 was...

Stayed for 3 nights. Hotel was very clean and room was spacious. Showers are not like US showers, water comes out at like 5 gallons a minute! Pool was great to relax at the end of a busy day. Beach is a 5 minute walk away though the center of town. You can grab a couple of six packs on...

The new part of the hotel is lovely, clean, and quiet since the hotel is set back from the road. The pool was clean and the children enjoyed it. The howler monkeys were an added attraction! It is a little walk down to the beach and to restaurants, but that was alright with us. We enjoyed the seclusion of the...

Really beautiful property. The grounds are well maintained and the pool is really clean and lovely. I had a room right next to the pool and loved it! The owners are very kind and helpful.

Really good value for a great room, close to the centre and the beach (everything is a five minute walk away). Lovely pool, nice clean rooms, air conditioning, good shower. Really recommend it. Felt like staying in a family home not a hotel. Recommended

We arrived mid day during low season. Had tried to book online but the form would not work for some reason. Said there were rooms available. Waited outside for an hour. Used the bell to no avail. The woman arrived and asked us if we spoke German. Replied that we did not and it seemed to go downhill from there....

Two of my friends and I stayed here and we absolutely loved it! It had everything we wanted. Beautiful gardens and pool, a great location, super clean and spacious rooms (with small fridge and coffee maker) AND it was quiet and peaceful. We would highly recommend it and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Samara!!!!
