“Sofitel, Athens Airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

My wife and I had to spend the night at Athens airport before flying on to Syros, and we have to say that the Sofirel was excellent. The room was quiet, which in an airport hotel is unusual. The beds, we had twins pushed together to make a double, were extremely comfortable. The evening meal in the restuarant was adequate and if you have the moussaka one helping is enough for 2 people. The stafff were delightful and helpful.
On the following morning our flight was delayed for 2 hours, so we returned to the hotel and asked if we could sit in the coffee lounge. We were offered our room back if we wanted it, but we chose to stay in the lounge, where the staff were very caring.
On our return from Syros we had a 4 hour wait for our flight to London. We went to the exterior coffee lounge and had coffee and later a light lunch. This was not cheap (30 Euros for 3 cappuccinos and a 2 toasted ham sandwiches with olives and bits and pieces), but very good value as an alternative to sitting on hard chairs in the airport.

Location and service at hotel excellent. Very well appointed bedroom and bathroom.
The restaurant however is very overpriced and poor food - this is our third visit and next time we will find somewhere to eat at the airport

This Hotel cannot be beat for location since it is just a walk across the street to the airport. The bed is super comfortable and the shower is very nice. The staff is always very friendly and helpful.

The staff are friendly and eager to please and make your stay as pleasant as possible. The hotel is next to the arrival terminal and well suited for short business stay or transit flights. The rooms are clean although some of the furniture and fittings look a little dated. A little pricey compared to other airport hotels.

Very good position, just connected to the airport. Sofitel good standards, services very good, spa and great breakfast. Wi-fi ok.
To reach the city, 35 min. by metro. Station connected with hotel (2 min.by walk).
Perfect for touch and go....meetings.

I have reviewed this hotel before, and I do love it. It is a fabulous, expensive hotel with top class staff. Being February we had a great rate. Two doubles (interconnecting), and an upgrade to deluxe doubles (which do seem a little larger) for the price you would pay for one double if you arrived in July. Otherwise, it really is expensive. Probably gearing itself for the corporate market rather than a family staying for a quick stop over.
There is a swimming pool, gym, massage centre and hairdresser. Which is great if you have lots of time between flights. I trust you are looking at this review because you want a quick stopover.
There are conference rooms available if you are lucky enough to have a jolly meeting here. There are three (I think) places to eat. One of which is 24 hour and a 24 hour room-service menu. Just as you would expect from a hotel of this standard.
Good food at a high price.

We had a late Friday evening arrival at Athens so our connecting flight was next day. We have stayed previously at the Sofitel and so we booked again for the overnight stay. We had again a most pleasant evening meal in the Mesoghaia restaurant. There is an excellent buffet.
We spent the remainder of the evening listening to the most enjoyable piano entertainment over a couple of Metaxas in the bar area. We had a light breakfast delivered to our room the next morning. Although honey was not specified on the order listing, a simple note at the bottom of the order form requesting this to accompany the yogurt was fulfilled, bravo. As to be expected from a hotel right across the road outside the airport, it is not a cheap option but the convenience, service and quality is worth it.
