“Lovely hotel, great location”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Because of scheduling issues, we had a transit night in Athens, and rather than stay in the city, headed east from the airport to Marathon. Same cab fare as the ride to town, but instead of grey buildings and rush we got a fabulous view, a quiet, spacious room and a good breakfast for a very good price (about $US80).
At this time (June) there were few other guests and we got a perfect seafront corner room on the top floor, which gave us a 180 degree panorama of the Aegean.
Excellent pool was popular with airline crew, comfortable bar, lovely terrace overlooking the sea and the marina. Quite a few local restaurants to choose from.
Buffet breakfast was reasonable and the staff were very helpful.
Great alternative if you don't want to deal with Athens, and an easy trip back to the airport for the next flight.

Room Tip: Upper floors. Ocean side.

We stayed here for 1 night prior to catching the boat from Rafina port, which is only 10 mins. Nea Makri is a tiny little village with a amazing bar called Cavos, with stunning views and very cool. Good for an overnight, wouldn't suggest staying any longer, as there isn't much to do.

We stayed here for 4 days-the staff are excellent. The location is not convenient and transport-either a car or taxi, is required. the hotel is very quiet and breakfasts are good. the location has a wonderful view of the sea and islands. there are no shops nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room with direct views of the coast and islands

I want to tell you that this hotel is amazing and encompasses the meaning of GREEK HOSPITALITY!!! The staff was so sweet helping us with absolutely everything we needed. We stayed for a total of 5 days and enjoyed every minute. I will definitely come back when I am in the Nea Makri area again!!!

The best part of this hotel is the positive service oriented attitude of staff/owners. We arrived very late approximately 11pm and were welcomed with much gusto.
We were hungry and asked if there was any chance of getting something to eat at that late hour. Not a problem at all! :) Amazing attitude, we were immediately taken through to the restaurant and had a delicious (and cheap) meal, served by the owner herself I think.
Tummies full, we had a good night's sleep and left in the morning with transport arranged by the hotel.
The breakfast is simple but adequate. The hotel prices are good.
The hotel is a distance from the airport. Approximately €45. Cheaper transport is organised from the hotel when leaving, just ask.
The welcome - can not be beat.
We would stay here again, it is value for money.

Thank you Natasha/Mimi/Panyiotis/Tassos... and all the staff at Hotel Mati... we have had the most awesome time from the whole planning process to our wedding evening. The food and the decorations were amazing - I wish I ate more and chased our DJ less!! Our family and friends were so very happy with everything. We cannot thank you enough for all the hard work you put in to make it perfect. We can't wait to see you all again... and we certainly will next summer. Big hugs all round.. until we see you again. Have a good winter. xxxxx

This hotel is not near airport. If you once lived in Greece and returned and wanted to be close to the sea this might be the place for you. However, the sea was not as nice as some places in Greece. Receptionists were very nice and welcoming and arranged transportation to airport. There was a faint smell of urine in the lobby as well as in the hallways. We had a sea view which was nice but the bed spread was dirty and stained. The grounds during the day by the pool were a mess. No one took old glasses or plates away from tables or lounges when clearly they were empty. It wasn't clear if the pool was a community pool or for guests of the hotel. They provided no pool towels. The clientele staying there were the over 60/70 crowd out of a Greek movie. Better to stay in Athens, shlep your luggage and spend the money on a cab to the airport (which we were originally trying to avoid)
