“next door to airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Perfect airport hotel, 1 minutes walk from Athens Airport terminal , due to location it is expensive , but the quality and service are up to standard. nice quiet room with a very good black out blind, for a good nights sleep. clean and tidy. drinks in the bar are pricy .

We stayed at the Sofitel for one night on January 1st, when we arrived from the UK at midnight and our onward journey wasn't until the following afternoon. It was just so nice to be able to walk across the road to the Sofitel and not have to take a taxi into the city. The lady on reception was really friendly and made us feel very welcome. Our room was a good size and well equipped, with kettle, coffee and tea making facilities. The bathroom was great, with a bath and separate walk-in shower. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room soundproofed, so noise at all from the runway near-by.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel but used one of the coffee shops at the airport instead.

I would definitely use the Sofitel again, if arriving late into Athens.

I stayed here twice,once on 27th FEb 13 and again on 12th March 13, really nice hotel and so great to get off plane ,cross road and into nice room.Check in ultra smooth,upgraded my room and 24 hour free wifi which was quite fast.NIce pool on top floor so don't forget your trunks .Very quiet in room and this hotel has soft close doors so other guests don't slam doors like so many hotels I have stayed in.NO noise from aircraft or roads as triple glazed which does mean you can't open any windows but I know which I would rather have.Fair sized room and nice bathrooms.My only criticism would be the price of food and drink in the HOtel which is clearly aimed at business travellers,they are very expensive I.e25euro for American breakfast,I didn't eat or drink anything in the hotel because I'm not prepared to pay such prices.Perhaps I'm being tight but other folk I know who stayed here say the same,if only it were possible to eat and drink at reasonable prices I could have given full marks.The staff I came across could not have been more helpful in any way.Would stay again but would be so nice to afford a drink and meal as well .

As you would expect, the hotel is excellent in all respects. Additionally the location cannot be beat for access to the airport. You literally walk accross the street inside the airport proper. From the man managing the car arrivals in the front of the hotel, to the check in and check out, the service was top notch. The room was extremely comfortable in all respects, the bathroom and shower were excellent. And it was very quiet- which could be a concern being located in the airport. We slept wonderfully.

What a lovely hotel! So very near the airport making it very convenient if you're travelling on to the islands and beyond.
We enjoyed a very warm welcome and upgrade to an executive room from the charming staff.
We were amazed that the hotel could be so close to the airport yet so quiet - the sound-proofing is very good!
The room had a great view and was very comfy. The bathroom was to die for - I want one like that at home!
Normally when we stay in Athens we use a hotel in town but as we had a late-ish flight in from England and a relatively early departure the next morning we made the decision to stay at the Sofitel. Although the room was a slightly more expensive than we usually have, we worked out that after travel to and from town we spent no more and enjoyed total luxury!
Yes - the bar and restaurant prices aren't cheap but if you want luxurious convenience then this is the place to be!

Nice room, nice beds, right at airport which is perfect for early departures. We were arriving from Santorini and had an early onward flight, so this was the best choice even though much more expensive than other options farther away from airport.
