vwery nice hotel-the only thing the shower they need to do something about that and no lunch/dinner servedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This Hotel for us was the perfect location. A private beach and a beautiful swimming pool just a little distance away from Pythagoria with cheap fixed price Taxi fares. I like firm beds but not everybody does so that was the only negative point. The best holiday i have ever had in the best location i have ever been to and I travel a lot!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is in good condition. Near to a beautiful beach. Transportation to the other places is not that easy. I would recommend for the people with car or who prefer to rest and do not go around the hotel and enjoy the peace of the surroundings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The management went the extra mile and we highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely location; lovely accommodations"
Gorgeous view. Really helpful staff. A little way out of town but we went there to relax so it was perfect. Pool was nice and we had access to the beach on the adjacent property down the hill. Room was very clean and had updated furnishings. No complaints.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An absolute gem."
Lovely hotel and staff. Fantastic views. Great breakfast buffe'. Easy walk to beach. Easy transport to Phytagoria. Day and evening snack meny at the (great) pool to poor and bland. Would love to have proper restaurant service in the evening, but the restaurant on the beach is excellent so no real issue.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a spotlessly clean , well managed family hotel. It is in a beautiful location ,all rooms have sea views and above a lovely beach club. It is very convenient for the nearby town of Pythagorion where there are some excellent restaurants. Good selection at breakfast and free internet. Very friendly family and staff who couldn't do enough to make […] our stay a special one. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Yeri çok güzel"
Konaklama gayet keyifli, ve huzurlu, personel misafirperver , servis kalitesi çok iyi, deniz ve kumsal çok iyi, ulaşım kolay, dinlenmek için ideal, yüzde yüz tavsiye ediyorum.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Kauniilla paikalla, mutta auto- tai taksimatkan päässä "maalikylistä", taksi on kylläkin halpa 5-7 euroa/sivu ja respa soittaa sen asiakkaille. "Hotellin yksityinen ranta" = Naapurihotellin, joka on kyllä käytettävissä, mutta aurinkotuolit ovat maksullisia. Rannalla on hyvä palvelu ja paikka on suojainen. "Nopea netti" on puhdasta mainospuhetta. Huoneessa […] oli hotellin langalla oleva pikku läppäri ja meillä oma tabletti, mutta molemmat koneet olivat enemmän koristeena, kun käytettävissä. Allasalue ihan jees ja palvelu allasbaarissa toimi mukavasti järkihinnoilla. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Muthis bir plaja yuruyus mesafesinde"
Sehre yakin ama sehrin icinde degil. Muthis bir plaja yurume mesafesinde guzel bir hotel. Hotelde herkes ama ozellikle resepsiyondakiler yardimci olmak icin dort donuyor. Tek ufak sorun bizim kaldigimiz odalarda dus alininca butun banyonun islanmasi. Deniz manzarasi karsisinda Acik bufe kahvalti cok keyifli.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Supert hotell for ferie med bok og badehånkle."
Veldig bra hotell, rent, lyst og velholdt med et imøtekommende og vennlig personale som var svært behjelpelige når baggasjen min ble forsinket flere dager. Grei romstørrelse og lekkert bad. Fine og romslige fellesområder rundt bassenget. Det ble servert en variert og god frokostbuffet. Hotellet lå pent til ikke så langt fra en fin strand, men det var […] litt langt inn til nærmeste tettsted med butikker og spisesteder, og det gikk få busser så det gikk en del penger til drosje.

"Dejligt og rent hotel"
Rigtig god oplevelse. Rent og nyt. God pool med udsigt. Fem minutter til stranden. Billigt at tage taxa til nærmeste by. Så godt udgangspunkt, hvis man primært er der for at sole - og vil opsøge kultur/byliv.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ottimo hotel tranquillo per tutti"
Veramente un bel soggiorno! L'isola è bella e l'Hotel è in ottima posizione. Bella struttura, tranquilla, con tutti i comfort. Inoltre è vicinissima alla spiaggia attrezzata e riparata che è una delle più belle dell'sola. Il centro di Pitagorio, molto animato e pieno di taverne, è a circa 3 Km, tuttavia per raggiungerlo è preferibile un mezzo di trasporto. […] I taxi sono veramente economici (da e per l'aeroporto 12 euro) dall'Hotel per Pitagorium 5 euro. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Against our expectations"
07/15/14 sadokusadasi kusadasi
We booked our hotel from booking com and paid 140 Euro per night for three of us and comparing with other hotels around ,this hotel does not deserve the money we paid.Room was big enough for three of us,bathroom was ok but there was no curtain or any other preventer at the bath tube and all the water was on the floor,maybe there is a good reason not to put something to water come out and all the bathroom was so slipy and be careful with yourself.Airco was coming directly to the bed and sometime you had to turn of other wise you woke up with a flu for sure.Breakfast wasnt enough so limited.mr ancelo was so symphatic and he sent us a bottle of vine for an excuse.Hotel is not on the beach it is on a hill .Anyway next time for sure I will not be choosing this hotel.
"The most incredible views"
06/15/14 janet a Sonoma, California
We spent 2 nights at this family run hotel and really enjoyed our stay. We spent hours on the balcony looking at the panoramic view of the sea and Turkey. Same amazing view at breakfast. They served a big buffet with many items including hot eggs. fresh fruits, olives from their trees, etc. It was obvious they wanted to please their guests. It was very conducive for relaxing.
06/13/14 Lovisa_336 Gothenburg, Sweden
Note first that you'd like to hire a car if living here. Taxi to town is 5-7 EUR one way. You do not want to walk! And you do not want to have your meals at the hotel. The pool bar is below par. And there is an overpriced restaurant by the beach. Having said this the hotel is very nice, best view I've ever seen. We lived in the main building in a deluxe room, superb view of the sea and Turkey. Nice and clean. Lovely staff, very helpful. Breakfast not very good, do not expect much. If you get a special deal this is a good hotel. Pool very deep though, ca 2-2.8 m!, not good for small children. But good hotel for romance. The beds are really hard but you can ask for additional mattress in the reception.
"our heaven in Samos"
01/04/14 Londonaise London, United Kingdom
We've visited Samos 7 times since 2001. Our journeys always started from Kusadasi and this beautiful island is our escape point from chaotic cities. We stayed in different hotels in the island; the absolute best is Hotel Princessa with no doubt! It is a family owned and run hotel, very professionally, I must say. Sparkle clean rooms, delicious breakfasts and a view to die on top of very helpful and always friendly staff attracted us each summer to this lovely hotel. Owners invested a lot to refurbish the hotel and the result is brilliant. Rooms are brand new; mattresses are very comfortable and the plexiglass balcony railings helps you enjoyed the spectacular view while you are laying in your bed. it is a heaven! Rooms have plenty of storage, flat screen tv, silent fridge and laptops with internet. We love to stay in the new building. Our daughter and us, we enjoyed the jacuzzi in the balcony every afternoon, it is a bliss to relax in the open air jacuzzi looking at the tremendously beautiful Aegean sea. Although the hotel pool is good, we prefer to spend our days at Glikorisa Beach which is a 5 minutes walk from hotel. In our opinion, it is a best beach in Samos. The hotel use to run a bus service to Pythogoria in the past but stopped unfortunately. If they will improve the menu on the pool bar and restart the bus services, it would be more than perfect. Seeing every year the Mavros family welcoming us to their hotel make us feel like coming back to home. They been so kind and very helpful to us in every aspect over the years. Already looking forward to the next trip.

This was our third stay at one of our all time favorite places to visit in the world! The Princessa is a hidden gem with all the amenities and much more! The proprietor, Vais, and his family do a wonderful job of welcoming you and making you feel at home. The location is just out of the town of Pythogoria, which is where the airport is located on Samos, so it's convenient to both. This year we traveled with my husband's 2 daughters and their spouses for their first visit to his "family island". They both agreed the Princessa was spectacular and with very reasonable rates. See you next year!
"Below average hotel"
09/10/13 Pabib London, United Kingdom
Booked room in main building. Instead were given a room behind the main building,with very limited view of the sea. Refused to supply us (we were couple) with a second key, with the excuse that some clients used the card and kept the ac on even when not in the room. This was very irritating. No internet. I had complained to the reception and was told that I was the only one to have problem. During breakfast, asked some people if they were able to connect and nobody was able. The girl from reception started shouting at me for asking and the manager/owner was just next to her saying nothing. During our 3 days stay no connection was possible. Breakfast very poor. Much better hotels very nearby.
"Good hotel with a nice view"
09/03/13 Elene T Birmingham, England, United Kingdom
The hotel is located on the hill. The view is amazing as probably form any high spot on a Greek island. Therefore to get to the beach one needs to have a little walk. Going downhill nice, but walking back up in hot summer day a bit exhausting. And the beach itslef not the greatest on the island, it is pretty small and overcrowded (Two hotels use it). We drove to other beaches and they were much nicer. The hotel itself is nice, rooms clean, breakfast nice. Food in the restaurant also very nice. The hotel has got nice pool area, where you can relax and have cold beverages. Overall we were satisfied with the stay in hotel.
"Nice Hotel with Great View"
08/25/13 Sertug Istanbul, Turkey
Nice hotel close to the sea with great view.It is easy to go Pythogorion city center between 5-7 Euro. NIce clean fresh rooms, well cleaned and with balcony and high standard bathroom.It is difficult to find anything negative to say about hotel.
"Nice views, but what's up with the music?"
08/06/13 Martin S Stockholm
My wife and I spent a week at Princessa Riviera in late July 2013. Below we have listed some pros and cons with the hotel: Pros - Beautiful sea view from balcony. But not every room has a view, so be sure to check in advance if you want it. There was no separation between the balconies though, so you cannot be shy for your neighbours, also sitting outside. We stayed in a regular room; it looked like the premium rooms have separation. - A/C included in price. - The hotel is situated in quiet surroundings approx. 30 min of walk from down-town Pythagorion, with it's beautiful harbour. - Nice breakfast included in price. Cons -There is no longer a "free bus" as it states in some comments about the hotel, so taxi or a rented car is recommended. The local bus only runs about five times a day (no bus at all on Sundays), with the last bus going in to town at 17.15, which is far too early. -The shower in the bathroom is pretty much open, with the result that you wet most of the bathroom when you take a shower. The rest of the bathroom and room has quite a good standard. - The hotel specifically forbids guests from bringing their own food and drinks. Strange, since there is a small refrigerator in each room. - The hotel manager did not let us have two key cards to our room, with the explanation that it was "technically impossible". The result was that we were not able to cool down the room with the A/C, when we were off to dinner in the evening, so we always had to put the A/C on max cool and turbo fan to cool it down before going to bed. A bit cheap we think. - The hotel pool is nice, but what's up with the music? The pool-bar spews out the same monotonous dance-music over the pool area day after day, which makes the pool pretty much unusable, if you have come to Samos for a relaxing time. - The same goes unfortunately for the closest beach, Glicorisa, which in itself is a beautiful beach situated 5 min walk from the hotel. But, two loudspeakers spew out the worst of modern pop-music over the entire beach, starting at about 11 A.M. We asked them to lower the volume twice, but with no effect. We only spent the first day there due to the sound pollution. Instead we rented a car and went to other beautiful silent beaches, which the island has plenty of. Martin & Jessica
