Used the hotel as a base for a few days whilst on business in Greece. Being next to the airport it suits late arrivals and early departures, and has good links to town (even the metro is quite usable). Hotel is to usual Sofitel standard - rooms good and reception staff very helpful. The club room, though, is dire. It is a pokey unmanned room without windows on the top floor. Breakfast in the club room was limited and inedible (flies on the pasteries etc.) and outside of breakfast there is nothing in the way of food. Coffee is machine coffee undrinkable. Soft drinks only other than at happy hour, which is short and early in the evening - we never managed to catch it so cannot comment on it.

Summary - stay for the room and location - don't bother with a club room.

We stayed just one night here on the way home. The room was so nice, bed was the softest and most comfortable bed of our trip. The room was also so quiet and dark. Wireless internet no problem and fast too. The breakfast buffet was really good - even soy milk for us vegetarians! We came in the evening and left the next morning so didn't get to experience any of the other facilities of the hotel - but there was a hotel strike going on in Athens the day we were there, so the bar was closed and they were short staffed - BUT the concierge was SO nice, super friendly and you could tell he was working so hard. Breakfast staff were also really nice. Unlike the staff at the Royal Olympic, this was a welcome change! This hotel is perfect for an overnight before or after a flight - but the airport is located far from the city, so don't stay here if you're in Athens to see the sights.

We stayed here for one night en route from Mykonos back home. Very convenient. Just a short walk out of the hotel. Very pleasant receptionist. Rooms clean and comfortable. Shower was great! Free wi fi access for 24 hours. Choice of eating spots. We had a very pleasant lunch in the Artemis bar for lunch. Beautifully presented by very accommodating servers. We returned at night for drinks and a light snack.. Very nice bar, with piano player at night. What more does one want for just an overnight stay? i would not hesitate to use the Sofitel at Athens airport again.

Sofitel has a perfect location, situated 100 meters from the Athen International Airport.
The hotel has very nice rooms, several restaurants in various price ranges. There is also a swimming pool, fitness senter and spa available for the guests.

The hotel was perfectly located for us. After flying in from Thessaloniki, it was great to put our suitcases in the room and enjoy a refreshing swim in the pool. The metro to and from Athens was a breeze, and unlike Melbourne, the trains run on time and are clean. The staff were fantastic, and extremely helpful. A great experience.
