“unexpectedly perfect”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I have been recommended the Sofitel Athens airport as a most convenient hotel and was booked by business partners. After a rather disappointing stay before in another hotel I was immediately experiencing professional service and beautiful decor. The room was modern and sightly different to the standard business hotel. Just a bit above expectations. Such was the professional service from the employees. The access from the airport couldn't be better. And the quick breakfast before my flight was outstanding. This was just a one-night business stay but I was delighted. Just a bit more special than any other professional business hotel!

Stayed here for one night due to an early flight the next morning. Great location, as a short walk across the bridge to the airport. Rooms were a good size, clean and very quiet. Found the reception staff and bar/restaurant service excellent. We ate on the terrace and the food was really good. You will pay 5 star prices, but it is worth it to ease the stress of getting to the airport in time. The hotel is popular, it was booked out on the night we stayed, so book early.

I had an one night stay, from afternoon until next morning. The hotel is 1min walk from the arrivals. Check-in was fast. My room was on the 6th floor, big enough, fully equipped with all things which everyone needs. Decoration of the room was very beautiful. The gym was very small, but the indoor pool on the 9th floor was good enough for swimming. I had a buffet dinner on the restaurant "Mesogaia" on ground floor: it was very good regarding quality, although a bit pricey (35 Euro's per person, without drinks) if you consider the economic situation in Greece. Also, I had an after dinner drink in the outdoor patio of the lobby bar, in an ambient very beautiful and relaxing. Check-out was fast too. Finally, the location of the hotel is very convenient if you want to stay a few hours, but it is not convenient for longer stay because there is nothing to do in a range of 30 - 45 min by car.

Positive: You walk out the doors of the hotel, and within 20 seconds you are in the airport.

Negative: It was a little on the expensive side, but the convenience seemed to out way the cost for my 7am flight. The hotel staff wasn't too friendly, but maybe because they were a bit busy?

Out of all the hotels we have stayed at in Europe, we never ever had to REQUEST a non-smoking room. It should be the other way around. However when we checked into Sofitel at Athens Airport we were given the unpleasant news that all the non-smoking rooms were unavailable and we were placed in a smokers room (so disgusting). The man at the reception desk told us that if we wanted a non-smoking room, it had to be requested for when we made the booking which wasn't stated anywhere on the online booking form. I understand we were in Europe, but in this day and age, why are there even smoking rooms anymore? Also, the smoking room does not have any open-able windows so we couldn't get any fresh air. We were very disappointed. Luckily the room did not smell too bad (we left all the fans on high) and we were able to make it thru the night. We were catching an early morning flight so we only needed the room for less than 10 hrs. We spent time at the pool and steam room and ate dinner at the airport (The Olive Tree restaurant) to avoid spending time in the room as much as possible. On the plus side, you can't beat the location of the hotel - it is literally across the street from the airport. The rooms were spacious, clean and bed was very comfortable. It is an ideal hotel for those with an early morning flight.

The moment we arrived the services were impeccable. The concierge and front desk staff members were enthusiastic and kniwkegeable. Excellent interpersonal skills. Having just disembarked from Silversea Spirit we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent service.
The location is very convenient for early morning flights and the room is very comfortable.

This is the place to stay for those early morning flights from Athens especially if you are worried about metro strikes or traffic jams. The rooms are comfortable and quiet and you literally walk across the street to the airport. Typical to airport hotels, the meals are expensive. There are more food selections with better prices in the airport.
