Hotel Nikos is a very relaxed, informal hotel, we had 2 rooms between 4 people, one with kitchenette on first floor and one standard room on ground floor, both were cleaned every day and both were lovely and cool, (even when the temperature hit 36 degrees) the balconies were shaded for most of the day and air conditioning included as...

Drive into Matala take the first left in the village you can, there is a row of small hotels with paid parking and various hotel parking at the end. My advice park in the Nikos car park and walk back to the hotel to see if they have vacancies. A lovely couple run the place and have done for years.... More

After being kicked out of Matala view for no reason, the lady helped me and found a room where ti stay. Rooms are new, very well cleaned with AC and properly working WIFI. These are room features, but there are no words to express the kindness and the joy of the owners. They treat you like family, because they really... More

Stayed one night at Nikos hotel on a visit to Matala. Clean, spacious room with balcony and a little sea and cave view. Very firm (read hard) bed as always in the small hotels in Greece. The remote to TV and AC didn't work but it didn't really bother us since the ceiling fan was enough. Nikos, the owner, is... More

The Hotel/Apartments were clean and well equipped for short stays. The location is ideally located and within minutes of all the tavernas and facilities in Matala. We stayed slightly off-season in April and got a good deal plus Nikos himself was extremely friendly and accommodating. The room obviously had just been refurbished prior to the main season and the A/c... More

Welcomed by Nikos at our evening arrival as if a long lost friend then another demonstration of genuine hospitality from Martina at breakfast. Delightful. Their simple, clean, comfortable hotel reflects the care they have for their guests and their property. A central but quiet location. We stayed longer in Matala than originally intended - largely because of this lovely hotel,... More

We have stayed at Hotel Nikos many times. The first time in 1999 and now again in sept. 2015. Hotel Nikos stands for us as the absolute best hotel in Matala. It was nice to see the hosts Panagiota and Nikos again, both healthy and going strong. Hotel Nikos is centrally located in Matala, close to beach and city life... More

The Hotel Nikos in Matala is pleasant and well located in the centre of the small town, and is recommended. A big plus is the parking lot just up the street exclusively for hotel guests. Matala consists almost entirely of cafes and shops catering to day trippers and short-stay visitors. If you want cafes right on the beach, this is... More

We were on room 14 on the second floor, the room had a little kitchen and a small bed for our daughter. The room was not very big but quite comfortable, also considering that the room has a nice place outside the door with a table and some chairs. Maybe the wardrobe was a little small. All windows are toward... More
