I really liked this hotel, it's just across from the airport terminal, about 40 mtr's walk. The staff were first class and the food was outstanding especially the desserts which are some of the best I have eaten in a long time. There is a pool and beauty spa on the top floor which I couldn't use cause good old BA had lost my luggage, again! The rooms are really comfortable and even though I was only there 12 hours I never heard a single plane take off or land. Would definately highty recommend this hotel.

My family stayed at Sofitel Athens for one night at the end of a vacation in Greece. The entire staff we had interactions with (front desk, concierge, doormen, pool&spa, housekeeping) were very attentive, helpful, and proactive in assisting us. The location is also a plus as it makes early departures or late arrivals in Athens very convenient. Rooms are large, clean, and modern which we found to be a pleasant change from some similar hotels in the city centre.

Stayed here for 1 night in Superior Room 202 for a “lowest priced” 105 Euros without breakfast in early February 2013.

Once you walk out of the terminal from arrivals and look across the street, there you are – Sofitel. We wheel-chaired across at speed.

Lovely welcomes and 2 keycards for the lifts and rooms. Pity about the stability of the door on 202. When it was locked, there was a full ½ inch of play on the door, suggesting Maintenance Man should realign it with his tool. But the hotel was secure and we were made to feel safe and ace by the staff.

Non-smoking 202 was cosy with a comfy, meaty double bed. The view through a locked window was of the walkway to the train station, but you can only see people from about the waist downwards because of the way the walkway is built.

The bathroom had a lovely round basin, a shower and a one-person sized bath with another shower in that. Both the shower and bath with another shower were accessed through a clear, glass-styled window – ideal should your partner wish to admire your bits and pieces while they are flossing their teeth. The soaps were in miniature glass containers that were like little olive oil bottles –nice touch.

The toilet was in a separate windowless room beside the bathroom. It was a bit cramped. Noises from other rooms could be picked up here, so no potential in planning a minor military insurgency, even if you managed to get your co-plotters in with you. But the toilet itself was a fun, easy- to-use system that coped well with what we gave it.

I’d stay here again for the lowest price arrangement that can be booked a couple of weeks in advance. While staying there I checked the actual price and it was up to 149 Euros. That’s just too much if compared with other accommodation in the vicinity (see my other review). But location and convenience here is ultimate and it’s only 5 euros by bus into Athens if you fancy something more affordable than the food on offer in the hotel and in the airport. You could also go to the Outlet Retail Park or IKEA to spend some time.

A very nice hotel indeed and conveniently positioned opposite Athens airport and only a very short walk away.
I had only ever used the fine facilities of the hotel before when I had time to kill between flights etc so already felt at ease here as the staff were friendly and inviting. This time I stayed overnight prior to an earlyish flight via LHR to NY JFK......it was a good choice....I could have stayed cheaper in town but really wanted to avoid the rush,drive out & taxi expense in the morning. I was given a lovely room on the side I had requested upon booking. It had a wonderful bed and bathroom and really was worth the extra money spent. I did book well ahead of course and got a good rate. I had a couple of minor niggles (very low hot water pressure/loose tap/warm beer from bar) which were courteously handled by reception the morning after and I subsequently received a personal reply (not from some third party PR company) from the hotel's manager. This was much appreciated and is a noteworthy example of taking the customer seriously and responding to constructive comments. An altogether highly recommended hotel indeed!

Room Tip: Runway side is nice if you like watching planes etc....

Sofitel Athens Airport, is 100m from the arrival terminal at Athens Airport. In addition to this, it is approximately 5km from the Metropolitan Exhibition Centre, making it most probably the best hotel - airport - exhibition centre combination in the world!

Stayed here overnight on my way to LHR,cause my connection flight was very early in the morning.Thiw hotel is very close to No 4 and 5 arrivals exits,almost inside the terminal.I have stay here for a few times and allways its the same great hotel.Friendly and profesional service and staff,very clean ,rooms small but very nice decorated ,separated W.C. from bathroom,interested view.The beds are very comfortable,great sleep.The most impressive about thiw hotel is its soundproofing.Its unbelievable but you don`t hear NOTHING AT ALL ,allthough so close to the runways.My only complain(from my self!)is that i allways wake up very early and i have never eat breakfast,so i don`t have opinion about it!
