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.
