My wife and I had to spend the night at Athens airport before flying on to Syros, and we have to say that the Sofirel was excellent. The room was quiet, which in an airport hotel is unusual. The beds, we had twins pushed together to make a double, were extremely comfortable. The evening meal in the restuarant was adequate and if you have the moussaka one helping is enough for 2 people. The stafff were delightful and helpful.
On the following morning our flight was delayed for 2 hours, so we returned to the hotel and asked if we could sit in the coffee lounge. We were offered our room back if we wanted it, but we chose to stay in the lounge, where the staff were very caring.
On our return from Syros we had a 4 hour wait for our flight to London. We went to the exterior coffee lounge and had coffee and later a light lunch. This was not cheap (30 Euros for 3 cappuccinos and a 2 toasted ham sandwiches with olives and bits and pieces), but very good value as an alternative to sitting on hard chairs in the airport.
