Stayed for a week's family holiday. Staff were exceptionally pleasant, facilities very good, cleanliness faultless. Nothing too much trouble.

There is at the back of the hotel, I am not certain if the parking space is adequate during high season, my stay was off seaso. Still, it was very convenient at that time.

Do you provide an iron so we can press a shirt?
Do you have transportation to ferry terminal? If so at what cost?

Is the pool heated and indoors? I see people making mention of enjoying the pool in April and May, which seems like it would be too cold for an outdoor pool.
Sorry for the delay in responding. As others have mentioned the pool is outdoor; sheltered courtyard. It is not heated.

Does the pool get afternoon sun? We are arriving on an early flight and would want to spend the afternoon sunbathing. Thanks
So very sorry for not spotting your question. Yes, indeed the pool does get full afternoon sun. I hope that you did actually stay at the Samaria and enjoyed a wonderful holiday in Chania. Best regards.

Hi, how far are you located from beach? Is your hotel kid friendly?
The best beach within a 15-20 minute walk is to the east of the Samaria (turn left from the Hotel) and is easily found by following the side of the old Venetian city walls and dry moat. This takes you to the promontory with great views, then turn left and you will come to a lovely sandy beach with sun beds and umbrellas if you want them. There are some great family restaurants along that promenade at reasonable prices. There were a few children at the Samaria when we were there in May and the pool is excellent for kids but I would say that the facilities and location are really more suitable for adults. I am sure you would have a an excellent stay at the Samaria Hotel.

"Excellent rooms!"
"Penthouse superior room"
"Request room facing inward/pool"
"ask for the upgraded room. you pay a bit more but it's well worth it!!"
"Ask for a pool or bus station view as the street will be a bit on the noisy side."
