Family airport stay

Can't beat the location. Across the street from terminal. Great rooms and pool/fitness center. Would stay here again. In the AM before our flight we walked across the street and were in the airport. Highly recommend this hotel for an overnight stay after/before your flight.

Price is a rubbery for such low quality

Hotel is the only hotel in the airport area, but it is outdated, neglected and plain dirty / smelly. They overcharge for night stay by at least 3x but know they can get away because people need to stay overning for continuation flights to Greece islands. They can not even match quality with Motel 6. My advice is to plan you trip so you DON"T HAVE to stay at Sofitel Athens. I will for sure next time. Almost $300 / night should demand some standard and not such run down hotel.

Great short term stay

We were only in Athens for 12 hours, after flying for 11 hours. Needless to say, we were tired. We still managed to hit downtown Athens via 40 min train ride for diner, then had the best sleep one could want in a hotel. It was clean, it was incredibly quiet, and it was comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone who is staying in Athens for a short period of time, I only say this because of its distance from downtown Athens. A bit pricey on the surface but 100% worth the cost.

Sofitel Athens Airport - a great convinience

This is our second stay with this hotel in less than a year. It was a great convenience for our last stay. We had a 6:30 flight the next morning. The check-in counter of our airline was just a straight shot from the hotel. From the lobby to the ticket counter, just across the street, was less than 10 minutes. There is even a luggage-cart dispenser just outside the hotel so you can get a cart for 1 euro. In addition to the location, our room had all we needed/wanted. The room was clean and quiet and well appointed. It also include extras like robe and slippers. The also offer 24 hour room service if needed. It is a no brainer for us the next time.

This place rocks!

We needed a place stay overnight between flights and only picked this hotel because it was convenient. But this hotel is better than most major city hotels. The place is beautiful, the staff is super friendly and helpful. The rooms have a very modern, new feel to them. And the location is directly across the street from the Athens Airport. It's a very easy walk, even with luggage. I wish there were more hotels like this. Big thumbs up!

The hotel restaurant is fine (we had breakfast there), but we ate dinner across the street in the "Olive Tree" in the airport. It was very good.

The location is ideal if you have a morning flight. The rooms were suitable, clean, etc. The restaurant was very expensive for the quality of the food.
