“Very cosy”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Small hotel, but very cosy. Good breakfast buffet, but can also get an omelette or eggs cooked to your liking. Yeah, very nice pool area, but Astir beach is just few min away and they give you beach towels. Lots of different restaurants nearby. All you need! Room was clean, bed was nice. Would definitely recommend!

I spent only one night in this small boutique hotel but I have to admit that I loved almost all of it. The rooms are ultra clean, cosy and with style. It has a small swiming pool with a lounge bar, perfect to chill out. Breakfast was good with variety of dishes and good quality. The only thing that one could miss is direct access to the sea/beach and that if your room is in front of the swiming pool lounge, you might have some noise in the evening due to the music. Minor details for a good experience.

Great service, lovely rooms and a nice intimate feel inside and around the pool. We dined at the restaurant in the evening and the food was superb. Breakfast was also fantastic. We left very relaxed. This hotel deserves its Leading Small Hotel of the World status.

The only negative comment I have is that we were interrupted 3 times by housekeeping on the morning we were checking out. Each time they seemed to have thought we had vacated already. There is no reason for housekeeping to interrupt on the day of check out until the guests have left. This was annoying and would have been so easy for the hotel to avoid.

Stayed at the Margi 3 days in July while visiting friends in Athens.
Loved the pool area, the staff was amazing, food in the restaurant was nice if not cheap.
The main reason for not rating it 5/5 was the rooms that a) were on the small side and b) felt more like a 4 star business hotel rather than a boutique hotel where I would normally expect the rooms to have an identity of their own. All in all we would consider staying again.

We stayed at the Margi for 5 days in early September as a wedding anniversary treat to ourselves. It was an enjoyable stay though not quite meriting a top rating. The downside was the small’ish room size, limited pool area and a sense of the place being a little too “corporate” (there was an event on whilst we stayed). On the plus side were the very pleasant staff, a decent breakfast spread (though no fresh orange juice), excellent fitness room and generally cool “vibe”. We ate the residents’ “special menu” dinner one evening and it was good quality and value, just a little disappointed that this menu did not appear to change during our stay.

Reference the small pool area; this is OK for chilling for a couple of hours but not really to spend the whole day. The best option is to walk to the nearly Astir Beach which for €13 per person (mid-week rate) you get access to a lovely bay, decent loungers, cafes and plush changing facilities.

Of the local restaurants Ioakh is the nearby “special occasion” venue (with a price tag to match), the Moorings is fine (20 minute walk) and Zaxos Grill / Loizidis Taverna are decent and good value lunchtime options (15 minute walk).

Room Tip: the pool area can be quite noisy so try to avoid a low level floor.

Nice hotel close to some of Athens beaches. It was the last stop for us on our 6 week holiday and we had a very relaxed 7 days here. The city of Athens was 40 mins by car, easily done by taxi. The restaurant in the hotel is very good, though servings are small and price is high. The dining around the area was nothing special. The pool area is definitely a bonus, we spent many days around the pool as it was too hot to go into the city. We were travelling with 2 kids (ages 4 and 1) and they loved the pool. The rooms were comfortable but we had to upgrade rooms on arrival as the initial room was too small.
The service at breakfast was very inattentive, but the breakfast buffet was great.
We would stay there again and recommend to our friends

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights to celebrate our anniversary and I cannot say enough great things about our visit. The gentleman at the front desk gave a room upgrade and the view was perfection!

Every member of the staff we encountered was friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was wonderful...it included made to order omelettes, fresh juices, and many other items.

The room was clean, but even more important is how comfy the bed was.....so comfy we didn't get up before 10am everyday! The hotel was quiet when it needed to be and lively during the day. The pool area is an oasis and you can easily spend a lot of time there.

The Margi is a five minute walk to several great restaurants and a little grocery store. Also noteworthy is the fantastic Astir Beach Club. It's a private beach club with restaurants, a bar, hundreds of sun beds, and a beautiful sandy beach.

A very warm thank you to the staff at The Margi for making our trip unforgettable...we will see you next September!
