Good for early morning travellers”

across the road from the airport entrance!

we wrapped up our trip in santorini and by arriving athens at 8pm, we had to catch an international flight to catch the next morning at 5am. sofitel athens airport hotel is the only hotel within the vicinity of the airport. we were so happy we made the right choice to stay here, the hotel looks grand and luxurious, the room had a clean and large shower, and the bed was large and comfortable (in fact it was the best bed we slept on during our 2 weeks holiday in europe), we were sad we didn't have the opportunity to enjoy this hotel more. we were able to sleep in until 4am, and walked to the check-in counter, which was 5 mins walk from our room!

Convenient and beautiful airport hotel”

Location, Large Size & Comfort

We booked the Sofitel Athens Aiport as we flew in from Santorini at 9pm at night and had a flight out to London 7am in the morning. I wasn't expecting too much, and chose the Sofitel Athens Airport Hotel purely out of convenience. However, when I arrived at the hotel, the check-in process was very quick, our room was very spacious and had everything we could need. The bathroom was also very large and had everything you could need. A very positive experience and I would highly recommend this to any traveller who similar to us, needed something close to the airport. It is a 10 minute walk to the airport and such a good place to quickly recharge your batteries before your next flight out!

Extremely Convenient to Airport”

Location/price/service

We booked the Sofitel as we had an early flight the next morning. As we had been in Athens earlier on in our trip we decided it was easier to stay at the airport location rather then go back into Athens. The check in and check out were both extremely fast and efficient. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped. As l had read previous reviews about the price of food at the hotel we walked across the road to the airport and found plenty of reasonably priced food available. Tea and coffee facilities were in the room which was an added bonus as we have not found many hotels in Greece providing this facility . In the morning it was literally a 2 minute walk into the airport. It was a very pleasant stay at a well run and friendly hotel.

Great Athens Airport location”

Just across the street from the Athens Airport Terminal

The Sofitel is always a 4 to 5 star chain hotel. It is the best place to stay if you have an early flight out of Athens Airport. It is about a half hour metro ride from the center of Athens, so it is not a good place to stay for a visit to Athens. Service was prompt and efficient. Room was well appointed. Top floor pool, sauna, and fitness center were indoor. It would have been nice to have the wall of windows open to let in fresh air. Restaurants looked good, but expensive, designed for people on an expense account or for whom cost is not a concern. Less expensive eating alternatives are located in the airport.

convenient location for airport and bus to rafina”

location, service

This hotel was absolutely perfect for our needs. We landed in Athens at 10pm and had a ferry to catch from Rafina at 7:30 the next morning. This hotel is literally across the street from the airport -- easy walk, no taxi needed. The check in was efficient by Greece standards and the service was great. The guy at the desk gave us very clear instructions on where to find the bus and the timetable for from the airport to Rafina port. The bus stop is just across the street -- again, easy walk, no taxi needed. The bus to Rafina was right on time and only cost 3 euros. We had a few beers at the Sofitel restaurant which had a really pleasant outdoor seating area. The hotel bed was really comfy and the bathroom was nice.

4 Star Hotel, Great Location.”

Nice spa, indoor pool, good restaurant, comfortable room, nice bathroom.

pricey, yes... but you pay for what you should get at a 4 star hotel. great location, 30 steps away from the airport. when arriving or departing athens, sofitel is convenient (especially when it comes to transportation problems within the city). you can order room service 24 hours, so food is not an issue if arriving late or leaving early. the ground floor restaurant has a superb breakfast buffet and dinner was good as well. great restaurant staff, friendly and personable. great staff overall. room service was 20 minutes late the morning we checked out - maybe just a one time mistake.

Convenient”

We stayed at Sofitel twice, at the beginning and end of our 1 month trip, as our exchanging flights were in Athens. The hotel is across the road from the airport and so convenient. The hotel itself is dated, but still offers the "Sofitel" conveniences. Naturally, a little overpriced, but as there is little other choice, but to take the 50km journey into Athens city, they have you over a barrel. I would recommend using this hotel for half day recovery stays between flights or an overnight stay if you have an early departure, to save the battle with peak hour Athens traffic.

Proximity to airport and metro, friendly helpful staff, security.

the hotel was clean and felt secure since the elevator could only be used with your room card. as a couple, it was nice to be given a room card each too, as too many hotels only give you one card. the free wi-fi (all you need is your room number and surname to access it) was a nice touch, as was the fantastic spacious shower. my wife loved all the l'occitane shower stuff provided (free) in the bathroom. our room overlooked the runway to the airport but noise was never an issue. the hotel reception also provides a computer with a check-in service for flights from athens airport (and printer for boarding cards) which was free. another nice touch.

Perfect for early morning flight from Athens”

The Sofitel is across the road from the airport. It is clean, modern and you can see the planes taking off from your room. Despite its location the rooms are very quiet. There is a good gym, pool and sauna. The metro is right next door to take you to Athens in 45 minutes. We arrived early morning and were flying out again early morning. We checked in, spent the afternoon in Athens and didn't have to wake too early for a7am flight the following day.

Location right at the airport, excellent standard of rooms and impeccable service

It was wonderful to have somewhere perfect to stay in between late and early flights through Athens, right on site at the airport. The service at Sofitel was attentive, the rooms and beds were excellently comfortable, and the facilities looked great but on this occasion we didn't have time to use them. The only small negative was that I didn't get the charger back that I left in the room, even after calling and emailing and having an initial reply.

Excellent location, great amenities, and friendly customer service oriented staff”

The hotel is located inside the airport which is a great location if you are traveling abroad and you have to stay in Athens overnight. You don't have to rush to get up much earlier than you need and find a taxi to take you to the airport. Only a street separates the hotel from the airport main terminal building, so you just walk there. The hotel is very well insulated, so you do not hear a sound from the airplanes that fly within the airport space. The hotel offers all the conveniences you need. Very comfortable beds, restaurants with good food, spa, wake-up call service, etc. Staff provides excellent customer service.

The hotel is located literally steps from the airport. It has all amenities and is very modern and functional. It has a bar, restaurant and internet service. Coffee and tea in the room are available, as well as TV channels in multiple languagest. It is quite expensive though and in some deals the breakfast is not included. Wireless though was free which is great, especially for the business traveler. This is a hotel to stay to catch an early morning flight or when arriving late in the evening. It is too far from central Athens for business or sightseeing.

Sofitels are sofitels in Mebourne, Athens or Berlin so you know you're going to get a high standard of accommodation with prices to match. The Athens Sofitel is about 90 seconds walk away from the terminal and for this reason alone , it will be the best choice for many people who are on the move.

Best location for late night landing in Athens”

location closest to airport, staff services, room comfort and decor

We had a late night landing in Athens so the Sofitel is the best location for walking across with luggage. The airline missed a bag but the staff was very helpful going out of their way to help us store our luggage while the final bag was delivered. This allowed us a great tour in Athens without worrying over or chasing after our bags. This missing bag worked out well for us thanks to the staffs kind assistance and attention to details.

This was the perfect hotel for us. We arrived Monday eve and our flight left the next morning. Just a quick walkover from the airport. The hotel is beautiful and clean. All employees we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable.. Loved the bed and shower was the best we had for the three weeks we were in Greece. We ate at the bar restaurant. The food was good but expensive. I was surprised to be charged E4.50 for a litre of water when all the other restaurants we were at during our vacation didn't charge for water. A cheeseburger with some fries was E 15.00. Would definitely stay here again for a stopover stay in Athens.

The front door of the hotel is directly across from the arrivals entrance to the Athens airport, about a hundred yards away. So if you have an early flight and don’t want to risk getting caught in traffic, this is the place for you. We didn’t have time to try the restaurant, but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The beds are a bit too soft for our taste, but otherwise the hotel is first-rate.
