“Pay the extra money and stay at sofitel, its not really at the airport”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

We planned on staying here for 2 nights a few days apart while we went to a wedding on one of the islands. They claim to be an airport hotel but the shuttle doesnt run between 11pm and 530 am, and they run every 30 minutes. If you are traveling between those hours than i guess the 10 minute drive isnt a big deal, but if you need to be at the airport early like we did, you have to pat the 35 euro to the airport.. We cancelled our second night and stayed at the sofitel, which is perfectely located 30 seconds walk across from the airport. It was very clean and nice and worth the extra money.

The hotel is located close to the metro station and is quite elegantly done.The rooms are a bit small an dlooked very congested.Quite easy to get a taxi from the place.The room service was good. There 2 computers at the lobby which provide free internet access fro 30 mins per room per day. Dissappointed that they didnot have free wifi. Lots of small eateries around. Overall a good place to stay within limited budget.....

After a long day, we arrived at our hotel. Reception staff was friendly, we checked out the restaurant and decided to stay there for dinner. Everything was going great; meal was good, waiter was friendly. We paid cash for our dinner and gave him a very nice tip. When we returned home I was reviewing my Credit Card activity on-line and discovered that he charged our room for the dinner and must have pocketed all of the cash! I contacted the hotel immediately via e-mail and have gotten zero response! Staff like this will destroy this hotels reputation. I gave the hotel a rating of "Poor" only because of my negative experience and their lack of follow-up. Based on what we went through I would have liked to have given a rating of "Terrible". If I wouldn't have been ripped off by the waiter my rating would have been higher.

We stayed here for 3 nights in April and it was a good choice pre Greek full economic meltdown & Athens riots!

Short walk to the excellent underground rail system and therefore easy access all round. Sure there is a small 'club' a block up the road but that was not obtrusive and the district did not suffer as a result. The hotel was well run and the rooms were great and well set up.

Breakfast was good and there were clearly many locals using it for conferences as well as one of the major Greek professional football teams that was there for a few days.

We had a minor problem with the failure of the tour company to advise the hotel that we booked 2 rooms, one for our 15 year old daughter and one for us, and without confirmation the staff simply allocated a room to Juliet and dealt with the paperwork the next day - excellent service.

I've been to this hotel several times and it's always a pleasure.
It's nice, clean, well located. A very good and reach breakfast, all the team there is friendly.
In summer they serve breakfast at the 7th floor, with a nice view of the city. Also, there is a nice terrace with a little swimming pool perfect to cool down after a busy day in the hot Greek weather.
The only complaint I have is related to Internet connection: it's becoming a real big nuisance to be charged something like 22 euro for 1 day connection. Ok, I was there for business, but it feels like being robbed...
