“Great value for money.”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

I was to spend a total of six nights in Vathy, Samos in August 2013. I arrived by ferry at Vathy Port and, having been to Samos a few years before, I remembered a hotel near the harbour, The Samos City Hotel. I booked in for one night (24th August). Thankfully I booked for only one night. Give The Samos City Hotel a miss or only use if you have to. The following morning I booked a room at The Aeolis Hotel.
I stayed in this, The Aeolis Hotel, for a total of 5 nights (25th to 28th August and returned for one night on the30th August 2013). The 2nd floor front (2 nights) has a good view but somewhat marred by utility cables. The 3rd floor front (2 nights) has a fantastic view of the harbour. For my final night I stayed on the 2nd floor with a side view which was a lot quieter. The view from the front rooms more than make up for the bit of extra noise. The staff at both the reception and the bars are very friendly, the two ladies on reception helped with everything from advice on where to go and what to see on Samos to sorting out the air conditioning controls (Do Not touch them, they have a mind of their own, the reception lady warned with a little smirk. Surly? No! Just a great sense of humour sometimes lost in translation maybe). The barman in the main bar found the Manchester City game on the tv just for me but be warned about the Ouzo, it's very potent although the result of the game was not so good..
The position of the hotel is very good for the town and the KTEL bus station is only a 10 minute walk along the sea front. Breakfast is good, rooms are fine with a small balcony. The reception area and main bar are pleasant and the roof top bar has fantastic views of the habour and town lights in the evening. In general the rooms to choose are on the 3rd floor front. If I pass through Samos Town (Vathy) again, this is the place I would stay. Great value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third floor front are a little noisy but have great view.

As a family with 2 young children, we got connected rooms which was very convenient. Very uncomfortable matress and pillows, we asked for softer ones (pillows) which we got in the follwing day.The location of the hotel is perfect. The breakfast is of good quality & quantity. Overall good value for money, although the pool & jaccuzzi in the terrace was out of use due to the late season (26 October).

Room Tip: ask for sea view rooms in the front side.

We had come to Samos only to get to Ephesus, but we wish we had had more time to spend on the island -- next time! We arrived via ferry in Pythagoria and took a taxi to Samos town, where our hotel was.

When we checked into the hotel, I dealt with what I would call a surly receptionist. Not very happy. The room was OK, with a nice little balcony overlooking the main street and the harbor. Breakfast was excellent. And on our last day there, we needed to catch a very early taxi to get us to an early plane from the Samos airport. The clerk at the desk (different from the one we encountered initially) arranged to have an early breakfast set up for us and in time for us to make the plane.

Room Tip: Top floor facing the harbor.

the only positive thing about this hotel is its location, because it is in the center of Samos.
Rooms are dated, old, Bathroom is very small and there is no shampoo, no shower gel etc.Towels are so old that thet are no longer white more like light grey..

Brekfast is also very poor, no variaty, for example one kind of cheese,jam, tomates,olives, boiled egg and that is about it.

Room Tip: choose another hotel...

We were there on a VERY windy day/night but that did not stop the room feeling like a sauna during the day- the no air con in May is something that defintely needs to be changed!
Staff were nice, had a few drinks in the bar aswell. Its in a great spot very central and overlooking great views.
Breakfast wasnt great- we got there at 930 and all the 'hot' food was shrivelled up and cold.
we were only there one night- room was OK, bit small and very 80's, shower wasnt great.
for a one night stopover it did the job!

A Greek friend of ours booked us this room in Samos Town (Vathi), right on the water, so we weren't sure what to expect. The ground floor where the lobby is located is beautiful, even upscale, but the room itself was like a cheap American motel room. You book this hotel for its location and views, however. Our room was across the street from the water, with a balcony, although the view was somewhat marred by the presence of the telephone/electric cables that run up the street. The bathroom was, in my prissy American view, disgusting, moslty because the floor was dirty. Everything else in the bathroom was 1970s-80s era European. Staff was friendly, and everyone spoke English. The included breakfast was nice, and the breakfast room open-air seating overlooking the street behind was delightful; I could've sat there all day. There's a pool and bar on the roof/4th floor. The cafe, right on the street with both indoor and outdoor seating, is a great place for a coffee or drink. The free, unlimited WiFi was a treat, especially since European hotels tend to be stingy with internet connections. We were here in early June, and although our room had no AC, the nights were cool to keep the temperature down. Bed is hard, but we still slept well. The street below is noisy, particularly since we had to keep our balcony door open for air. I'd stay here again, but not before exploring other options.

We stayed here for 3 nights in May 2013. The air conditioning was not working...when we asked, they said they would only be turning on air conditioning in June! It was impossible to sleep as it was so hot and because of the noise coming from the bar below. For 72 Euros per night, it offers bad value and we really could not recommend it to anyone.
