“Cheap - and that's what you're going to get”
Reviewed 21 July 2011

The huge thing going for this hotel is the owner. He is a very charming, friendly man. We received a terrible room that was almost falling apart and smelling disgustingly like smoke. I asked him if he could do anything about it and noticed that he definitely felt bad about it. He couldn't find us a place in his hotel, so gave us one night in a "higher status" hotel close by. Thank you!
The room that we received the second night was good. It had a beautiful view of the sea, and was clean. It should be sad that this hotel does not have AC, and the rooms are in terrible need of repair. Otherwise they are pretty quiet. Beware when arriving in Samos town by Bus like we did. It is about 45 minute walk to the hotel!

We stayed at this hotel because we read about it in Lonely Planet. It is a good 10 min walk fromt e ferry terminal. The twin room we had was quite small with a tiny balconey. But it was not that clean. There were several centipedes on the floor as well as numerous mozzies. The bathroom was so small that a piece had been cut from the door so it could open and shut past the handbasin. We only stayed one nightand were out of there first thing in the morning. There are other hotels in Vathy that cost about the same and offer so much more.

Good value for money hotel. Arriving late at night by ferry really appreciated being picked up. Free wi-fi. Fridge in room a plus. Breakfast is not included as stated in the lonely planet. The owners were extremely helpful and went out of their way to help you. Only a ten minute walk to the centre of town and ferry terminal.

We went to this hotel because it was highly recommended in Lonely Planet, and the rooms were nice and very affordable, with a wonderful view from the balcony. True, there is no air conditioning and there was no shower curtain around the shower, but this is a 35 euro/night hotel in Greece, and we were used to that. The owners were very nice and let us keep our luggage there while we took a day trip to Turkey. The only problem was bed bugs, which ate me alive during the one night we stayed there, and I was covered from head to toe with bites the next day. It was also a bummer that you had to pay to use the internet. Still, if they get rid of the bed bugs, it would be a wonderful little place.

Reviewed 30 August 2010

The hotel was clean and the location pretty good. The owner was friendly and very nice. He gave excellent service by taking my niece and I to the ferry. The bathroom did not have a shower enclosed by a shower curtain. That was minor to me except I do not like water all over the place. The view was very nice.

I hate to write the negatives because the owner was nice but here they are.

Negative number one - No Air conditioning. Sorry but I am from Houston and I live in air condition. Greece is hot in August so A/C is necessary.

Negative number two is we were on the side facing the one hospital in Samos. So when the ambulance went by it woke me up. If you use this hotel pay the extra for the sea view.

So if this hotel had AC and if you were on the sea view I would give a better rating.

I would say I would recommend with quailifications

This hotel is very basic... but it does have fantastic sea views, is excellent value for money, easy walking distance to beaches and town, close to the best bars in Samos town (especially for sunset views!) and a very friendly owner. It's also clean and the rooms were of a decent size.

We only stayed here for 2 nights which was enough. We didn't love Samos, but it was okay. The hotel is fine if you are after something simple
