Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Sofitel Athens Airport is lauded for its exceptional location directly opposite the airport, making it a magnet for travelers seeking accessibility for brief stays or transits. The hotel's rooms win applause for their tranquility, comfort, and contemporary amenities, although a handful of guests have raised concerns about the air conditioning and upkeep. While praised for its overall cleanliness and sophisticated atmosphere, the hotel's value proposition is sometimes questioned due to the steep dining and room costs. Service perceptions are mixed, with some guests experiencing professional interactions, but others missing a personal touch.

An exceptional place to stay and very quiet inside our room even with the airport. We had an early flight and this place made things so simple the next morning. The evening we arrived I walked into the airport and picked up some late snacks. Our Jr 2 room suite had a table and chairs, hot pot, coffee service, corner windows for loads of light, comfortable L sofa, soft bed, large shower & separate tub, and double sinks with all the comforts one needed.

If you need a hotel close to airport there really is no choice so you're stuck with the Sofitel. The restaurant and bar are a little pricey but good food and drink is served. Bedrooms are nicely equipped. My only issue is that they seem to be penny pinching by not turning the air com on so the room was warm and stuffy and no ability to open the window. Only after arguing with the night manager about how ridiculous it was to have aircon that doesn't cool below 21 did they provide a fan and crank up the coolness. Once temperature was sorted I had a great stay.

We booked this hotel because we had a 6AM international flight home. The hotel could not be in a closer location to the airport. It was so nice to just walk across the street at 3AM! Our first room had a problem with the air conditioning. After waiting for a while for it to cool and having maintenance come twice, the manager moved us. That was slightly inconvenient, but having a cool room was worth the move! We appreciate that they were concerned about our comfort. Temperature taken care of, we were able to enjoy our room. The bed was very comfortable and I loved that there was a soaking tub, in addition to the rainfall shower in the bathroom. Despite being so close to the airport, we never heard a plane. It was a very quiet room and made for a wonderful end to our time in Athens.

I had an early morning flight and this was this only airport hotel so I stayed the night, though this is not within my normal budget at $227 for one person. The convenience is ideal---immediately across from the airport entrance and they give you a wake up call. There a couple of free bottles of water in the room and an espresso maker. The bed was gigantic and comfortable and there was both a shower and bath which had great water pressure and nice and hot. I especially appreciated the black out shutters and sound proofing. They have a restaurant but note there is food to purchase immediately outside the airport entry (spinach pies, baklava, etc..) fresh and obviously much cheaper.

Very nice room with an extremely comfortable bed, beautiful facilities and highly professional staff! The team at the rooftop restaurant is exceptional and took great care of us! Moreover, I would like to point out Dimitris at the bar and Stavros at the Main Restaurant, who both walked the extra mile. Moreover, the team members at the reception are very friendly, polite and helpful. Looking forward to come back!

Super airport hotel with very easy access. The room was adequate, although a bit spartan looking, with a very good bathroom. The pool/workout area/spa was pleasant but the pool was freezing, and we had to go into the sauna to warm up. Biggest beef here for me, is the price is outrageous and is purely location driven. For 259 euro for 1 night without breakfast, there are plenty better hotels, but not in this location.

A stones throw from the airport and yet you do not hear the planes once inside. From the moment you walk into the hotel you are greeted with friendly and professional staff. My husband and I have used this hotel 5 times during the past 6 months and I have to say it the service has been outstanding. We have arrived sometimes at 2am and it has been such a blessing to walk just across the road from the airport and get into bed! Even at 2am the staff on duty have been happy and willing. The rooms are very clean and i have to say one of the best equipped bathrooms with bathrobe and slippers, toothbrushes, razors, comb, earbuds, cotton pads, shower cap just to name a few bits at your disposal! The Body wash and shampoo smells really nice too. The water pressure is strong and makes a fabulous strong shower! The bedroom shutters take out all the light so you can get a great rest. The bed is really large (King Room) it is fantastic, with very comfortable pillows and duvets. We have been lucky a few times to have been upgraded and has been a real treat for the extra room space. The junior suite rooms are one of my favourite. I recommend their executive rooms, giving you access to the executive lounge with complimentary snacks and drinks. The lounge is very comfortable, the snacks are delicious and plenty of drinks to choose from. There is a lovely pool, where you can see the planes taking off. The standard and quality of food is high. The breakfast selection is very large, with plenty of healthy options and yummy naughty treats. Overall you will not be disappointed staying at this hotel.

We were booked into this hotel by our airline (Sky Express) as we had missed our connecting flight. The hotel was fantastic, the rooms were spacious and modern and the beds super comfortable. The meals were from a buffet which were fine. The bar is expensive as you would probably expect for a five star hotel. Would definitely stay again if needed to. Was literally across the road from the airport.

Great place to stay if you want to be close to the airport for early flights or if you just want to be sure to be there on the day your flight is leaving and don't want to risk flying in from another island on the same day. Comfortable, clean, upscale room with the best shower we had in all of Greece. Fabulous breakfast buffet. They also have an airport trolley rack right in front of the hotel so you can bring your luggage over on an airport trolley and take your luggage back on one too. The airport is literally just across the street, but leaving Greece we had so much luggage that the trolleys were a godsend. I really want to commend Leonidas, the doorman, and Dimos, the bellman. A couple hours after we had checked in, I finally noticed one of my smaller bags was missing. They went all out looking for it, including checking the cameras to see if we had actually arrived with it. They were so kind and concerned. When we couldn't find it on the property, Leonidas suggested I go to the airport lost and found, giving me precise directions on how to find it. Much to my relief, it was there! Again, a HUGE thank you to Leonidas and Dimos for helping me out!
