We stayed at the Sofitel for one night only, before an early morning departure, and it was by far one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Everything about the rooms was great, from the dimmers on the lights, to the sliding wooden black-out window covering, and the shower/bath combination that was fantastic, not to mention the comfortable bed with down comforter. Lovely lounge and restaurant, as well. Highly recommend this hotel!!

I was doing an event in Athens and stayed at the Sofitel 3 times in February.

the location to the airport was the biggest bonus for me. It is a 3 minute walk.

Check in was quick and efficient and a porter took my bags to the room.

The room was large and felt very new, the colour scheme was contempory. Curtains had been replaced by dark wood shutters to block out any light.

The Bed was a Queen size with a modern cover and very good quality pillows.
Loads of storage space, room safe, Wirless internet access, a standard TV and comfotable armchair.

Lighting on dimmer swtiches!! soemone has been paying attention to their customers.

The bathroom is great with nice slate tiles on the floor in the bathroom area. You also have a seperate waterfall shower. There is a seperate WC.

The restaurant is a bit pricey and was OK. The Bar pricey but ok. At our rap party we were in there until 5 in the morning .

I did get a bit of a deal 130 euros per night. but the rack rate of 170 would have been worth it.

If you have meetings in town the drive is about 40 mins but if you are working near the airport this is great

Ended up in the Sofitel Athens after missing my connecting flight to Cyprus, however, I wished I stayed there.

This hotel is EXACTLY what you could possibly wish for in one of these situations. Right in front of the airport, brand new, super clean and with all possible services and more.

The rooms are very nicely decorated, shower AND bath, and well sound-insulated despite beeing in front of the airport.

24 h restaurant, bar and breakfeast from 04h00, this place surely has it all.

If you're only in Athens to move on this is indeniably the best place to go for. However, if you are here to see the sights, I guess you're better off in town.

We stayed at this hotel on our way to Italy for one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is perfectly located for visitors who need to be close to the airport. Check-in was smooth. We were in our rooms within minutes of arrival.

The room was one of best we've stayed in. Our room was on the third floor and we were upgraded to a deluxe room. The room and bathroom was modernly decorated, the entrance way was lined in hardwood. The toilet was its own room and the shower area had a raindrop shower (like the ones found at the Westin/Sheratons). This was the night first time we stayed at a Sofitel but I enjoyed the experience and would prefer staying here instead of the Intercontinental Athens (which we stayed for 7 nights).
Our beds were comfy and enjoyed a restful sleep for our afternoon flight.

We enjoyed a welcome glass of champagne in their lobby bar, Artemis. The drink prices were a bit costly but the bar was cozy and a nice retreat from the busy airport scene.

Stayed one night, arrived from santorini ad 11 pm and left next at noon to come back to Canada.

Very comfortable rooms, biggest breakfast choices of our whole trip in the Cyclades. Nice pool (pretty cold though) vith a view of the runway.

Good hotel for an overnight, very convinient to the airport means less than a minute walk!!! But that convinience has a price, because this is not a cheap hotel...

Stayed one night (yes the dreaded early flight) and really liked this comfortable and convenient hotel. The property is very modern and clean with helpful employees throughout. I would highly recommend booking the non refundable rate (--) if you know you are going to Greece as it was quite reasonable. Our stay here made the 10+ hour flight back to the States more bearable.
