“Perfect way to end a vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We decided to spend a night at the airport hotel instead of getting up early and fly in from the islands. Very happy we did, as Sofitel turned out to be great. Soft beds, good sound proofing, a nice bathroom with a rain shower, excellent free WiFi and a lovely breakfast including made-to-order omelets and good gluten free bread. Warmly recommended!

Most airport hotels are basically clean and do as they say on the tin they are airport hotels and nothing more. This one had a little bit more class about it. It is situated just a stones throw away from the main terminal building and is an ideal stay for those who come in on a flight from another country and are transferring to a Greek island next day.

The staff are friendly and they kindly upgraded our room to one that was big in size and was clean and extremely comfortable. There were tea and coffee making facilities, free wifi and a bar in the room. the bed was comfortable but the pillows were a little soft. The glazing was superb and no aircraft or traffic noise could be heard.

I did not eat at the hotel but there was a spacious bar area and I believe two restaurants.

This is an airport hotel as the centre of Athens is 40 minutes away by train or about 30 minutes by car depending on the traffic. It is therefore not ideally situated as your main location if you are planning to stay in Athens for a few days, but for business and overnight accommodation it is first class.

It is by far the best option if you have to catch an early morning flight to an island, just 2 mins walk from the airport.
It's a beautifull hotel with very nice interiors & exemplary hospitality...food was ample & really amazing.

We needed a place to stay for 1 night before an early flight out of Athens International Airport. This is the best option because the Sofitel is literally right across the street from the airport. I've never seen a set up like this before and it's very convenient.
A taxi one way into Athens will cost you €35 and some traffic. It's just better to pay a little more for this hotel, save yourself 2 taxi (or Metro) rides, and be steps from the airport.
The hotel is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. The bathrooms are super luxurious and the showers have overhead rain fixtures. The beds are comfortable and the linens are a high thread count. We slept very well here with their blackout windows too.
They have 2 restaurants and 1 bar. Everything is very expensive but I guess you are paying for the premium location.
Id recommend the Sofitel if you are only spending 1 night in Athens.

Great location across road from Airport yet quiet and great for a good nights rest before a flight. Pleasant rooms, great customer service and room service and restaurant etc on site. Internet avail in lobby.

Our flight was cancelled so we had an enforced stay at the Sofitel.

It is on site at the airport so convenient. The staff were as welcoming as they could in the circumstances however we were very much made to feel second class guests - I don't know if this was due to the hotel or due to what the airline paid for. The staff in the bar and restaurant were certainly not welcoming and made it very clear that they were putting up with us rather than welcoming us as guests.

We were given a standard room, which was actually very good. Spacious, well equipped, modern, a nice bathroom and shower. It was a very comfortable night sleep.

As far as meals were concerned this is where it was a let down. We were not permitted to use the restaurant or bar, we were given a buffet in a conference room. We had to wait 2 hours until after 9pm before we were able to eat (many had been at the airport since 5pm) and the quality of the food was pretty average - the tomato sauce and spaghetti really was bad but the salads were good.

Breakfast was similar, a buffet in the conference room - it was mass catering, not even any cooked eggs of any kind and pretty dreadful cereals.

So given that we started our stay in a bad mood, the catering both in the evening and morning certainly didn't help.

And then to cap it all, although the hotel is ON SITE at the airport and only 200 yards, there is no walkway from the hotel to and from the terminal. You have to get your luggage across a road, along a pavement, up an unmarked lift, along another corridor, across the traffic lanes, etc It was an unsigned dingy route.

If it is at the terminal building why don't they have a direct walkway ?

Anyway, it was a comfortable night sleep, it was convenient, but for us it didn't have a lot else going for it.
