Sandalis hotel is located in the historical village Pythagoreio right across the archaeological museum. The name of the settlement was formerly known as Tigani since 1955, when it was renamed to honor the locally born mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras, the statue of whom dominates the harbor depicting its famous theorem. It is built on the ancient city of Samos, on the southeastern side of the island.
Pythagoreio is a main tourist destination, where plenty of yachts, sailing and fishing boats moor in the picturesque harbor. Enjoy your walks in the picturesque alleys of the village and feel the warmth of the local hospitality. Just a few steps down from our main entrance you will find a lot of café-bars, restaurants, gift shops and mini markets popping up in small squares and narrow streets.
Near the hotel you will find the most remarkable sights of Samos island, such as the archaeological museum, the castle of Lykourgos Logothetis, the tunnel of Eupalinos and the monastery of Panagia Spiliani.
