Offering a restaurant, the stone-built To Exari is located in Omalos Village. It features heated accommodations with views over the White Mountains. Welcoming and cosy lodge. Delightful staff, very hospitable and helpful. Easy access to the Samira gorge hike, bus stop right out the front or a 5 minute drive if you have a car. Humble but exceptional food at the restaurant.
Located in the plain of Omalos, at 3.4 feet above sea level, the 2-star hotel Neos Omalos features a traditional restaurant, and offers rooms with view of Lefka Ori Mountain. We had a wonderful stay at Neos Omalos Hotel. Very Greek, friendly staff, nice room, good food and an excellent spot for stargazing. We came with the purpose of watching shooting stars when the Perseids peaked 12-13 August. And what a show - we got what we came for!

Located just 1.9 mi from the famous Samaria Gorge, To Ellinikon is built among lush greenery and features a traditional Cretan restaurant. The best and most important feature - the place is very close to Xiloskalo, where the Samaria goege hike starts. It is a pretty standard accommodation, which serves mostly hikers who stay there for one night before hiking Samaria gorge. It is quite functional, "no frills" place. What you pay for - is what you get. I would say it is not a hotel with a restaurant, but vice versa - a restaurant with rooms for rent. The restaurant is huge, it serves several buses of hikers every morning.
Located in Omalos in the Crete region and Samaria Gorge reachable within 4.1 miles, Mike Omalos Houses provides accommodations with free WiFi, BBQ facilities, a garden and free private parking. Beautiful location. Mike and his wife were very friendly and helpful.
Omalos Gianni's House is located in Omalos. Located 5 miles from Samaria Gorge, the property has a garden and free private parking. Superb location if you want to do Samaria gorge, not so good for the beach. There is no store, it is better to buy supplies along the way. Several taverns close by with good food and reasonable prices. The house is very nice and has everything we needed.
Villa Samaria is located in Omalos. Located 4.4 miles from Samaria Gorge, the property has a garden and free private parking. A fabulous house that meeted our expectations and even more!

Offering a traditional restaurant and a sun terrace, the family-run Porofarago is located in Sougia, just 98 feet from the entrance to Agia Eirini Gorge. Free WiFi access is available in all areas. Perfect location, if you like to hike the The Gorge of Agia Irini ravine Basic accommodation. Very friendly family hotel.
Isolated and beautiful, but long (one hour) journey through fabulous scenery to get to major road interchanges. Best to explore this gorge area only and come again to see rest of island. Coastal harbours/tiny resorts at end of hairpin roads enchanting and food excellent. Walking the famous 2 gorges is for strong souls but motorists can see some grand scenery. Strolling across Omalos plain is quite magical if you like wild places and are fond of goats. Property has no internet or DVD. Bring books!
It was a surprise to see such place in Crete where you are surrounded by high mountains. It is a good thing that this small village can be reached easily by bus from Chania. There are more possibilites for having dinner and accomodation as well.
We hiked at the Samaria Gorge and an evening before we also visited “Omalos viewpoint mountain” : 2 km before Omalos if You arrive from Chania there is a concrete path (1.5km) to the top:. Actually the mountain hosts radio /TV / mobile poles. 188 m elevation was a good preparation for the Samaria hike on next day for kids. The hike to Gigilos mountain is another option but is longer and more difficult.
The hotel is well organised and they give you an easy way to see the gorge and do the long walk. Not having air con is difficult as there are too many bugs to keep windows open at night. Lovely staff and decent food.
Omalos is a high plain close to the start downward of Samaria Gorge. It is surrounded by hills and mountains and features apple orchards and goats. You can easily visit and admire the start of the Gorge where there is a restaurant and shop and snack bar. We were there at the end of September and only the restaurant was open but the vistas were stunning. Omalos itself, has two or three hotels and restaurants for walkers and others, but no food shops that we could see .
One night here, before the Samaria Gorge is fine, or as a stop at the end for those walking UP the Gorge from Agia Roumeli. If you are also planning to climb Gigilos, maybe 2. Aside from hiking, there is little to do.
Perfect location to make the Samaria gorge. Very clean, quiet, and comfortable.
