“A very comfortable stopover, but definitely a one night only stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We needed to make an early flight so chose this hotel for the night (the Sofitel is ruinously expensive). There's a free shuttle from the airport at 30 minute intervals, so after dropping off our hire car we stepped straight on the bus. The hotel's about 15 mins by shuttle from the airport, and is basically in a desert of office buildings and a motorway service station, but it is connected to Athens by the fast public bus service, so you could go out for the evening.
We checked out the bar and restaurant prices which are absurd, so popped into the motorway shop for drinks and snacks, which suited us fine. Rooms are very good - spacious, huge and comfortable bed, good choice of TV channels, free wi-fi, proper big bath, kettle with tea and coffee - just what was needed. Not tempted by breakfast at between 15 and 22 euros each, either, but if booked at a discount and you don't eat or drink there, this is a good choice. Good English spoken; efficient reception; even a choice of pillows. Will use this again in similar circs, because although it's pricier than a hotel in Athens, we would have needed a taxi as well, which makes the Holiday Inn a sensible choice.

We wanted to be near the airport and away from the noise and intensity of Athens for our last 2 days in Greece. The hotel is right next to a bus stop that gets you downtown in 40 minutes. It is in a quiet suburb, off the highway so it was very peaceful, but limited amenities. Breakfast very expensive, but we discovered a cute little coffee and breakfast spot at the gas station next door! Staff were friendly and helpful. Pool, sauna, mini gym, all good. My impression: affordable and rather luxurious!

Newer, modern, free wi fi, airport shuttle...but this is an airport hotel. The rooms are completely American, with a very nice bath and shower. But this is not the place to stay if you're coming to Athens as a tourist. It is very far from anything you want to see. This is the place to stay for one night on a business trip, or to be near the airport for an early morning flight.

This is the pragmatic choice if you have a layover in Athens with an early morning connecting flight.
Sofitel is closer to the airport, but also double in price.
The rooms are spacious, there are three different kind of pillows to chose from and the beds are very comfortable.
There is a shuttle service from and to the airport included in the price.
Attention, the shuttle does not operate the whole night through.

We booked this hotel for an over night stay to catch an very early flight the next morning. We selected this hotel because it was near the airport and offered a free shuttle service and it advertised it had a restaurant on site. The hotel is very modern, well located and is as advertised. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. The hotel staff are friendly and eager to please. The only negative that we experienced is the free shuttle does not start in the morning until 5:30 am. We had a very early flight that required us to book a taxi which cost 30 Euro. They have a snack bar with a very limited food selection. Their restaurant offers a buffet only and it cost 21 Euro per person. I had originally booked a more expensive hotel that was across the street from the airport and didn't require transportation. By the time we paid for the buffet dinner and the taxi I could have stayed at the higher priced hotel.

However, over all the Holiday Inn is very nice and certainly adequate for our needs. I just feel that the restaurant advertised should offer options rather than just a pricey buffet where the hotel guests are captive customers.

Room Tip: In order to use the free shuttle, guests should be aware that the earliest the shuttle operates is 5...

I highly recommend this hotel not far from Athens' airport, if you need to catch a flight early in the morning or if you arrive very late at night. The shuttle is very convenient to get to and from the airport, but if you just missed it at the airport and don't want to wait for the next one, Express bus X95 (from the airport to Syntagma Square) has a stop right in front of this hotel!

Pleasant surprise, there was a seat on a courtesy bus available at 4.30 on the morning we had to fly to Istanbul. We were advised at check in to book immediately as it was almost full. We were very pleased as we were going to have to pay for a taxi. The room and facilities were excellent . The Hotel is very modern, and the meal at the hotel restaurant was good.
We were advised that the courtesy bus is not always available before 6 a.m. Only stayed one night but very comfortable .
