Stayed 1 night here recently. Arrived around midday and we were very pleased with the location of the hotel, literally out of the arrivals hall and across the pick up zone roads , just minutes away. There didn't appear to be any other hotels anywhere else that you wouldn't need transport to.
Very friendly and helpful staff in reception and had a room available to check in early so we were able to freshen up and go into Athens centre for the afternoon and early evening. We used the X95 airport bus for 5 Euros each way to Syntagma square, around 50 minutes journey time and buses 3 or 4 times an hour. The bus goes from the far end at the front of arrivals not from the local bus stops which you come to first when you leave the hotel.
The room was of a good standard, probably what we expected and it was very quiet all day and through the night in spite of its proximity to the airport / main roads etc.
There is a good bar / lounge area with quite a large outside patio for warmer weather. We had breakfast in the restaurant which was excellent with a wide choice and very good friendly service. We also thought the breakfast was better value than expected for a hotel of this quality.
The room price also represented reasonably good value for the standard of the property and its location.
We would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone transferring through Athens airport with a one or two day stopover even if you plan to see some of the city. we think it is better than hauling luggage to a centre hotel and back when the airport bus is so convenient an inexpensive.
The following morning we walked out of the front of the hotel with our luggage, up the escalator and straight to departures for our onward journey, it couldn't have been more convenient.
