We stayed two nights at Odysseas and we didn't want to leave. The room was very clean and from our balcony we watched the sunset over the bay each night. The hotel grounds were well kept and each morning we sat on the patio and were treated to an enormous breakfast for 8 euros. The family that runs the hotel was so welcoming and helpful during our stay. Samos overall was beautiful and had some of the friendliest people in the Agean.
Helpfulness of staff with advice and in arranging temporary accommodation at this hotel and another adjacent hotel at the last night of our intended stay. Our original and confirmed booking through Booking.com had not been accepted by the hotel (hotel does not accept the credit card nominated) and they were unable to contact us to advise. Steps within the rooms. Outlook from one room directly onto the street.
Aggeliki's care and personal attention was phenomenal! Her knowledge of the island and professionalism was beyond description!...Her narratives and wonderful stories could only be matched by her father's (Mr. Yiannis) love for history, folklore, and Greek mythology, with both sociological and geopolitical extentions. Mrs Virginia, and her other daughter Photeini (Lucid) were very sweet as well. The whole family stayed up late (even past midnight) in order to better serve our needs, something which they did not out of obligation, but out of love and passion for what they do! The family assembled once more to see us live and wish us all the best for wherever the fair winds of the Aegean sea might take us...Our experience was authentic! The service at Virginia hotel in Samos is flawless!!! Everything was perfect!!! It is very rare to find such exceptional Greek hospitality!
The staff was fantastic. It was an excellent value and we would stay there again.
great view and that s all some of the stuff was very rude, the breakfast was very poor and low quality, I ate lunch which it was very bad coocked, in fact I didn t ate it!!! nowhere to park my car....in general lower than expectations ... I definetely don t recomend it.
Simple, clean and comfortable. The bathroom modern and functional, fully ceramic tiled for a neat and clean appearance. The hotel is difficult to find the first time. Without the help of a very kind local who took us to the hotel, we would have had difficulty finding it.
This is a lovely place with a delightful family running it. We had as requested room with beautiful view of sea & mountains.I had trouble booking the Samos ferry from Piraeus & the staff made phone calls & sent me info on the flight alternatives. They really made you feel they cared for you. not a thing
The staff were very accommodating and even made breakfast available for us early. They were very friendly. The pool and atmosphere were excellent for our family. It was an easy walk to the port for site seeing and has upmarket ambience. Use a taxi for arrival as it is near the top of a hill and a challenge with luggage. Our driver was very helpful in getting us there.
The view of Samos bay Not as advertised re: non smoking. In fact, it reeked of tobacco and the staff smoked while cleaning rooms. The staff did not want to get it about secondary smoke. The breakfast was mediocre. The location is inconvenient. I only stayed one night because of health concerns over the smoking in the hotel.
I really liked the hotel and its location; it was an easy 10 minute walk into town. It was located in a quiet place and really enjoyed the refreshing swim in the pool. The hotel is run efficiently, very clean but the staff out front does not appear overly welcoming or friendly, but that may just be due to uncertainty with the English language or just the Greek way. We were really pleased with having chosen this hotel.
The friendly, personal touch to everything. The owners & housekeeping staff treated you as if you were part of their extended family. Not applicable.
I very well run individual hotel un the centre of Samos Town. The proprietor was very helpful. I had and injured ankle and he dealt with my luggage and took me to the ferry. I would recommend stying there. no
The location of the hotel was good as it was near to the port, yet in a quiet location with a lovely view from the bedroom. Friendly and helpful staff. I wish we'd been warned about mosquitoes. We slept with the bedroom door open and were badly bitten! The room was very well equipped but rather cramped as it was dominated by a large double bed which made access to the cupboards and opening the balcony door difficult.
The very frıendly staff and the free use of makıng up tea and coffee when you felt lıke ıt.
It was like being guest of a Greek family! Not a five star but Dimitri and his family went out of his way to make us feel like it was a 6 star! None
Friendly staff, very helpful, hotel located very near all facilities, restaurants, port etc. Parking and wi-fi available. no problems...
Very nice home style atmosphere, helpful personnel, communicative and attentive.
Location is really far away from port. Need to walk for over 15 mins with luggage.
Room was nice. Friendly manager, but did not speak English. Access to Internet free and nice large screen TV in lobby Breakfast was very sparse, no wi-fi
The hotel is right near the bus terminal on the island, so if you plan to move around by bus rather than rent a car this is a great location. The hotel is very open and easy going. You can use the kitchen at will and at anytime. The caretakers live on the top floor and the lady who makes the breakfast is sweet, speaks no english but is kind, friendly and helpful for your needs. A short walk to town center and port is good too. The room is comfortable a clean. There is a small balcony in the room, but no real view. The area is quiet and just a short distance from the noise of the town center No view of the water in a place on an island where the water views are wonderful. No real beach nearby, so if you plan to swim, find a hotel on the beach or with a pool. This place is clean and comfortable and a good value for the money.
Staff is helpful, hotel is very near to city centre and also the bus station, internet facility is convenient Tv in the room, but no english channels.
Lovely view from the balacony and has a traditional exterior The debit/credit card machine would not work so they had to come to Samos town with us to wait for a cash withdrawal. They were going to look into this problem and were very apologetic. I always prefer to pay by card for ease and security etc. I expect they will address this problem!
We loved our stay at the Mirini Hotel, and would go back in a heartbeat. It is a small family-run hotel, and the proprietors are delightful. The rooms are impeccably clean, and the decor is very comfortable and authentic. Views from the balconies, looking out over the bay, are absolutely beautiful. Breakfast on the terrace was delightful. The hotel was an easy walk up the hill from the ferry docks, and just meters from the town beach. Absolutely no complaints.
A very friendly staff, helping with anything needed. A real pleasure.
Very friendly hotel,we had delightful balcony close to the waters edge,easy 3 min walk to good beach and 12 mins from town. lovely outdoor terrace for breakfast. As experienced kiwi travellers we really enjoyed our stay here.
All rooms are facing the bay with a cute balcony and that you have an excellent ocean view. Breakfast.
Unbelievably helpful and supportive staff -- really bend over backwards for you.
I liked the location of the hotel and its terrasse with beautiful view, the friendliness of the owner and the staff who were very helpful also for giving advices on what to see on the island and where to go for dinner.And their suggestions were good. The rooms are clean , but a bit small. Wifi worked very well even in the room. It's a good solution for the price.
Location fantastic, great views of the port and ocean in Samos, short walk to the town of Vathy and port, the people that own the place are very friendly and accommodating
Staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful views of bay and beach from room. Quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Easy access to shopping and port.
We enjoyed our stay here. The buffet breakfast and dinner was good.The rooms were a bit small but there was an outside balcony with a nice view of the sea. They could have had a shuttle service to Vathi town. Either you had to take a taxi or walk. We walked!
The seaview from the balcony was wonderful
The hotel sites directly on a beach, the beach is rocky (smooth rocks) not sandy, you have to pay 6 euro for a set (2) lawn chairs with table and unmbrella, the water was clear and blue. There is a cafe right at the entrance, that serves wonderful greek dishes and alcohol and staff is friendly.
Good place. Short and pleasant walk into town, nice beach out front, friendly staff, clean rooms. Full breakfast. No wifi in the room, but not a huge problem.
I liked the balcony with oceanview and the privacy of the little bay on the dead end street with hardly any traffic.
The view of the bay/beach. The room was old and yucky, there was no toilet paper in the bathroom (which stank) and one of the girls behind reception desk was rude and unhelpful. The two other staff members we encountered were fine (nice and friendly).
Very nice view! Nice room with beds that were ok. The staff were very nice and helpful. Good service! Short way to the beach. Nice prices at the restaurant.
Quiet for rest The furniture is so old
clean sheets every day, air conditioning, next to beach, bar area buffet dinners - hot metal trays of food were not heated underneath so were cold very quickly
Enjoyed my 2 day stay. Very clean hotel with easy access to beach
very polite staff
If you are looking for a peaceful stay at a beautiful location, then this hotel is perfect! It's close proximity to the ferry port, town facilities, and the car rental office made it very practical, and the fact that it is nestled on the hill in a quiet neighborhood with a view looking over the Aegean made it very relaxing. The hotel staff was helpful and the rooms spacious and clean.
Nice location and view. Good pool. Helpful receptionist Twin beds for a married couple was a bit disappointing.Food was pretty poor
friendly staff, swimming pool, good location, good breakfast we had to go home to australia
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The view from the room. It is not in the best location because it is a bit out of town and up quite a steep hill. However I knew this before going from previous reviews and did not mind too much.
the service was very good and the room comfortable
Classy hotel, with warm, hospitable atmosphere, spacious, comfy and tastefully decorated rooms with great balcony view, nice pool and excellant sunbeds and pool bar. It's a hotel where you really enjoy your stay, with very good value for money. Though the bathroom was also spacious, the shower was small and the water was spilling all over the place. Generally showers and taps are in need of renovation. The balcony chairs in our room were heavy, clumsy and noisy (some other rooms had better ones). Also beware that there is no lift and you have to climb quite a few stairs to reach some of the rooms with view.
Very helpful staff. Very cute hotel, nice location with a beautiful view. Some parts of the hotel though would need some renovation. The newer part of the hotel seemed very nice. But in all a nice family hotel, situable for all kinds of turists. A renovation in some parts would make the hotel more atractive.
staff, location, the view from the balcony breakfast
The only good thing was the location of the hotel which is close to the town of Samos and it has nice view if you have sea view which they charge extra. First of all the breakfast was very poor and it was only one person who was serving and cleaning. The TV in my room didn't have any reception and when I complaint they told me that they will send somebody to fix it but no one came after five days that I stayed. They have only one PC for internet and they charge 2 euros per hour. The furniture and the bathroom of my room was quite old.
