"beautiful hotel in an idyllic setting"
A very fine hotel with a beautiful swimming pool in view of the picturesque town of Kokkari. A nice restaurant with a sumptuous breakfast buffet. Hotel staff very cordial and helpful. Located off the road and a little hard to find at first, but well worth the search.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Arion hotel is a great proposal to visit it and stay! we stayed there three days and we enjoyed the all facillities that hotel had! Large and clean room, unbelievable view, great balcony and drinking our coffee or drink next to the pool! The hotel has internet free and tasty restaurant! we ate in the balcony of our room and was magic, eating tasty dishes, seeing the sunset very romantic night which i never forget it!

Just returned from two weeks at the Arion. Lovely setting. Beautiful landscaped gardens. Although busy, because of the way the bungalows/rooms are set up it never feels noisy - you just see the people at meal times. Buffet breakfast and evening meal was great - such a selection. Would definitely return again and service was good too with really friendly staff all round. Loved it :-)

This is a well appointed hotel with wonderful views and fabulous food. A lovely place to spend a romantic holiday, with windsurfing at the nearby beach. The rooms are clean as expected of 4 star hotel in Greece. I would recommend it based on our 13 night stay, in terms of quality of food, well laid out gardens and generally friendly staff.

On first impressions the hotel looked great however we were disappointed with our room. It was hot and stale smelling. The air-conditioning control appeared to be broken and we were advised that the hotel controls the room temperature centrally.....not good....our room was hot! The hotel advertises a room safe as part of it's general services however if you want to use it there is a daily charge. They also advertise many activities such as a hot tub and sauna however these are kept locked and from the reaction of the receptionist to our enquiry are not generally used. In addition, they advertise free Internet available in the lobby however we were advised that the Internet was unavailable during the week of our stay. Little annoyances also included no plug for the bath, no iron available, no introduction or information or map provided regarding the town on check-in or services. On the positive side, breakfast was very good. We booked this hotel despite some previous travellers concerns voiced on Trip Advisor but we did so because it was the last hotel with a room available in Kokkari. We would book it again if it was the last room left.
"An island with plenty of 5 star beaches."

With so many islands to select from, we were overall very happy with our 10 days in Samos. Having booked this hotel, due to it's close proximity to the surf rental shop, we ended up with only 3 days of wind, which led us to rent a car for about 30 Euro/day. Many beautiful beaches, not many tourists. We travelled with our 5 year old daughter, not much for her to due at the hotel, however, many of the beaches and calm waters made our day trips fun with lots of swimming. I enjoyed early morning walks into the small city center, a few great coffee shops and food shops. I would pack everything you need, however, I did not find the shopping like in Kos or other larger islands. The hotel sits about a 5 minute walk up from the main road. There is a stoney path that you can take up and down (the short way) or you can follow the main road. Many people at the hotel walked into town after dinner each night, where you can view the fantastic sunset. The hotel has a pool, no shallow end for kids, we only used it one day after we discovered the quality of the beaches. Dinner and breakfast are okay. No wireless, they have 2 computers in the lobby, free to use, and almost every shop in town offers free internet, just stand in the street and most have no password protection. It was clean, quiet, and when we complained about our room being too hot in June, they switched on the A/C for us. They have Greek night on Fridays, you dine around the pool, it was a hit for our 5 year old, the entertainers are really good. We would definitely return and recommend it.
"Staff and management couldn't be more helpful"

Although my trip was to attend a conference, I found that this hotel was definitely one to return to with my family. My check in was handled efficiently and with great friendliness, and on arrival in my room in one of the bungalows I found it to be spacious and really nice. The colours and decor were so "Aegean" that it was impossible not to feel the energy and vibrancy. Since I had arrived late, I would have loved a quick swim before dinner, but the pool was closed, so I went straight to the buffet. Beautifully presented and really delicious, I sat inside the dining room where it was cooler. The other guests were mostly rather stiff Germans, which meant the atmosphere was a bit too formal, but the staff really did try to brighten things up a bit. After a great night's sleep, breakfast was really nice, although I didn't really have time to wait for all the preparation of various eggs and others, but I did appreciate that the waiter brought me a whole pot of coffee to myself, and remembered from the night before that I preferred sweeteners to sugar. Off to my conference where I spent the day in stifling heat, but once again, my welcome back to the hotel that evening was really friendly. They informed me that dinner was a Greek Evening with a bouzouki band and dancers, and although I was determined to get back to the room early to finish my work, it was not to be. (This was on a Friday night.) The food, again, was authentic and absolutely delicious, with many stations preparing fresh dishes on demand. (The hotel's owner/GM was constantly visible, and I think it makes all the difference.) Pudding was also glorious, but in particular there were some small fried doughnuts called "loukoumades" which are irresistible. The musicians and dancers had everybody up and dancing passionately, and it was a great evening. I left earlier than everyone else, assuming that I would hear the sounds of the party well into the night, but once I got to my room, number 702, I couldn't hear a thing. I was so sorry to be on business, and I will certainly return with my family. The hotel is on a hill, with mostly good views of Kokkari, and is a 15 minute walk to beaches and restaurants. Other reviewers have described the private pathway that shortens the trip, but taxis and small buses are also happy to come up to the top. The pool is lovely, but get there early if there are lots of Germans because they put their towels on the best chairs well before breakfast, and sometimes disappear for the whole day!

the Arion hotel is not only beautiful, up in the mountains with a gorgeous view, but the staff is great as well! i was traveling with a big group (30 people), i had contacted the hotel a few months before and arranged with them to help organize my group of family and friends. Stelios, the hotel manager was so helpful and really made this part of travel easy for me to organize, trust me when i say not everyone is a s accomodating as he was. they took care of all of my guests, knew them by name by the end of the first day, organized shuttles when needed, helped with whatever i needed. really, i can't say enough about the service and the staff. the lady at front desk (sorry i can't remember her name) was the best!! always smilling always ready to help.. and some of my guests weren't easy to deal with! As for the hotel itself, the rooms were perfect.. ok the look is slithgly outdated... but really it's not like you came all the way there to take pics inside the rooms! the shower water pressure is amazing and i'm really dificult with that stuff. the views are stunning, the pool is very clean and refreshing, the area is surrounded by grass which is nice on feet, it looks much better then on the pics..and the pics look pretty good. the food was good, to be honest i would only eat there in the mornings, not because there was anythying wrong with the food, but because we had family living there and spent most nights with them. so i can't really comment on the food, but my guests said they enjoyed it. the hotel is close to the action, but not too close.. just right if you ask me! it's a short walk down to the beaches, (side note: if you go to lemonakia beach make sure to eat at "andrea's" probably the best fod i've had while in samos) you can alos walk down to Kokkari, some thought it was a long walk but it's really about 10-15 minutes.. plus it's by the water and it's a really nice walk..walking up is not so great but not so bad either. the hotel is relaxing and quiet, but there is a kids pool and we had a few kids with us..they loved it as well.. and the staff was great with the kids, always friendly and playful with them. my only negative was the beds... the beds were awful.. like really bad. some of my guests said their bed was fine, but the general consensus was beds are bad.. i could feel the springs... it was not great... but i mean with everything else being awesome, i was able to overlook it next time i return to kokkari, i will be staying there for sure! i highly recomend it, it's beautiful, clean, relaxing, good food and great staff! really nothing wrong with anything
"Very nice place"

This clean, comfortable hotel is located on a hill within 15 - 20 minute walk to either the city center or the Lemonakia beach if using the little private path leading down to the main road. They also offer a free shuttle service for those who may not have the energy to walk. Taxis are easily available for those who may not want to limit themselves to the shuttle schedule.(4 - 5 euroes a trip). We enjoyed their breakfast that offered both hot and cold dishes and wonderful cakes and fresh fruit. I loved eating out on the terrace with the beautiful view of Kokkari. Suppers consisted of good basic meals composed of quality products. My favorite the festive Greek night. Folkloric dancers and musicians entertain their guests while a traditional Greek meal is served around the pool. The light snacks served at the pool bar are also good. Some of our friends had problems with their air conditioning. Since we were on the top floor we had air and were able to sleep well with the door open. The pool is very clean and the pool area is quiet and relaxing. The grounds around the hotel are well maintained. The hospitality and service at this hotel, both in the dining room and at the reception is amazing. We really enjoyed our week at this hotel and highly recommend it.
