Well, the sound-proofing was better than other airport hotels that I've stayed in BUT first impressions count: one member of staff on duty (mid-afternoon) and the guests in front seemed to take a long time to be checked in...then, the receptionist said she had to go and do something. When I was dealt with, it transpired that there were no no-smoking rooms left in 'Superior' category and, to be fair, they upgraded me to the next category, i.e. 'Deluxe'. Not a lot of choice in my view as I'm an A Club member and there need to be benefits if they expect guests to join.
The room was good - a decent size, bath/shower room separate to w.c. YET no iron and ironing board! This has become a 'pet' item as can be noted on previous reviews (sometimes, it's absolutely essential). Having been travelling across Greece all day, I simply did not have the energy to ring down and wait for one to be delivered. As a five star property, I would have expected there to be such a facility in the room.
As to be expected, there are high quality finishes - quality of bedding, towels, shampoos, etc. Good lighting options but why the old-fashioned CRT-type television? On the plus side, it's useful to have a speaker in the bathroom piping the television commentary. All in all, despite the quality mattress, I could not sleep but that's not Sofitel's problem. Depending on the price paid, this hotel is a must for early flights.
