Sofitel Athens Airport
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Spata
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 8, 2014

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.

I recently stayed at this Sofitel for a couple of nights as I was working from Athens airport. The location of the hotel is perfect as it is only 50 meters from the terminal, which is very convenient if you need to catch an early flight or if you are arriving late into Athens.
The hotel rooms are nice and comfortable but they may be small compared to hotels with similar standards. Rooms are also very quiet.
There is a small but nice fitness as well as a pool on the last floor.
Staff is very welcoming and helpful.
The only drawback is the internet connection. A free internet connection is provided but it is very slow (256kbps), just fast enough to check emails. A bit disappointing for a Sofitel.
High speed internet is available but cost 5€ for 1 hour.
Overall this Sofitel is very good and very comfortable with a perfect location.

We stayed at this hotel as we flew in late from the islands and had an early flight out the next morning. I wouldn't consider the room we had as luxurious. It was dated and run down, especially the shower. Not like the pictures on their website at all. I just expected a bit more for the price as it is quite expensive. However, the staff were lovely and for one night this hotel is perfectly ok.

Stayed here on my way through Athens and will be staying here again in the middle of May. While it looks pretty ho-hum when approaching the people in this hotel make the difference. Everyone we encountered here was friendly and helpful would recommend you give it a try if you need a place near the airport.
