“Worth the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We found this hotel to be expensive but we just wanted one night in Athens before we caught another flight to Santorini the next morning.
It was literally right across the road from the Athens airport so very convenient. 10-15 steps away.

They had the most comfortable beds and pillows durring our whole trip (we travelled to 7 countries and 11 cities in total).
The rate included a buffet breakfast which had a vast selected of hot and cold food. We slept in a bit so didnt have much time to enjoy the breakfast as much as we would have liked to. They offer to cook eggs any way you like which we didn't have time for unfortunately so make sure you have plenty of time to enjoy the breakfast before you have to check in for your flight!

We came back to Athens again after 7 nights in Santorini and wished that we booked at Sofitel for another 2 nights instead of finding a hotel closer to the city. It's worth making time to catch the metro from the Athens airport into the city or just to stay at this hotel!!

Had to stay at sofitel for one night because my flight was delayed overnight. Very close to the airport. Friendly and polite staff. Large, clean room with spacious bathroom and soft towels. Really loved the king size bed with comfortable pillows. Buffet style breakfast with ham, cheese, cakes, sausages, marmelades, cerials, coffee, tea etc.The hotel was booked and paid by the airline, so I do not know how much it costs, but i must admit that although I had a really bad day they managed to make it better!

We arrived in Athens after a 10 day cruise in eastern Mediterranean and Black Seas. We were quite pleased as we took a cruise morning trip, which visited a few major sights in Athens, including Acropolis, and dropped us at the airport. Sofitel is directly across drop off lanes, we got off the Ocean Princess first, we received an overview of Athens, and we paid less than the ship to airport transfer. After checking in, we did little other than sleep on one of the most unforgettable, comfortable, sink-into-the-pillow-top-with-feather-comforter beds ever encountered for over 12 hours to recover from lingering jet lag from instant launch of tourist activities after arriving in Venice almost 2 weeks earlier.
The lobby is well lit and a trove of, if not antiquities, at least reasonable facsimiles of Greek art. The on site restaurant offered a varied menu including buffet offerings at a reasonable price for its proximity to the airport. The wait staff even suggested the activity summarized in the title by saying, approximately, "Great that you are staying here! Tomorrow, take your bags over and check in at the airlines, return here for a leisurely breakfast, and check out of your room just in time to get checked through security."
Also, made use of the back door station for Athens' metro to inexpensively travel into the city for a day of self-guided touring around and over the Acropolis based on lessons taken from previous day's transfer/tour.

I spent one night recently at Sofitel Athens Airport and I was not disappointed. Very friendly and competent staff at reception as well as in the bar and restaurant. Buffet style breakfast with many food and drink choices, local as well as international.
The room was clean and spacious (5th floor deluxe), toilet and bathroom separate. Very comfy bed.
Two small things prevent me from giving 5 Points for "excellent". When I opened the Minibar there were not all items in there that were supposed to be in there, including a half-eaten bar of chocolate. Ok, I wouldn't want a € 5,50 chocolate anyway, if you get the same for a tenth of the price across the road at the Airport, but it shows that Minibar contents is not regularily checked.
As you have to ask for the key at reception when checking in one would assume, it was easy to keep track of rooms in need of checking the Minibar.
Second the VIP-Lounge I had access to do to my level at Accor's loyalty programme. Nothing to write home about and I have seen better lounges a "lesser" Accor brands. Tired furniture, meager offerings for snacks or drinks and no staff anywhere in sight both times I had a look. Saying that, access is limited as you either have to stay on the 8th floor or get a keycard programmed for access as otherwise the lift will not go to 8th floor. But a glass I used and left on a table was still sitting there 2 hours later...

So close to the airport as to be part of it. Friendly efficient reception and well furnished modern rooms.Slightly tired looking decor and a choice of non smoking or smoking rooms.24 hour restaurant and room service.An ideal overnight stop for connections to Corfu in winter.

This hotel boasts the best location after a long flight. Through arrivals, up the stairs, walk across the road, quick efficient check-in and within 5 mins you're in the shower! Nice bright modern foyer, pianist playing in the bar, first impressions very good. Rooms well designed, loved the separate loo and the bathroom layout. Great shower, with good pressure. Nice towels and dressing gowns with the usual bathroom freebies. The bed was comfortable but there is a mattress protector with a plastic feel to it and you sweat like crazy. Also reported to front desk on check out that the toilet seat was broken. At the rate they charge you don't expect a broken toilet seat. Generally the hotel is starting to look tired with the corridors needing attention and the door frame in our room broken. The prices in the bar are ridiculously high with a G+T and a draught local beer costing €17. We would have enjoyed a few more drinks if the price had been cheaper. Great position and half decent room but very overpriced.
