I was at Sofitel a total of three nights in March, and each experience was superb. I found the staff to be cordial, friendly and accomodating, even in high stress times. For example, Aegean Airlines cancelled all flights to the islands one night, so they sent me back to Sofitel, along with an untold number of other stranded passengers! The staff handled the situation quickly and efficiently, and with patience and understanding. The rooms were superb; the shower area was magnificent; and even though my room faced the airport, noise was non-existent. I came to love the time I could sit out in the outdoor cafe and enjoy wonderful food, excellent service and great wine. I will always stay at Sofitel now that I have learned how incredibly easy it is to get there. And yes, you can rent a trolley for 1 € to push your luggage across the street to Sofitel. On cost: my opinion is that by the time you pay at least the minimum 50 € taxi ride (one way) into Athens, then 50 € back to the airport, you actually end up paying less for your accomodations at Sofitel. Taxi fares are set by the unions, and you will see signs upon departing the airport that the minimum fare is 50 €, even if it's only a few kilometers (I got caught on that last year!) Also, having been witness to one too many demonstrations in downtown Athens, I really had no desire to go there. It was much more pleasurable to simply relax on the patio, read my Kindle, and talk to various people.
