Can't beat the location!

Having an early morning flight out of Athens Airport this hotel is a must!! Ease and accessibility were paramount for us and the quiet and restful atmosphere of our room was a wonderful end to our trip in Greece. Would greatly recommend it to everyone!

Outstanding acomodations and Facility !!

Outstanding new facility . Right in Athens airport , perfect for early morning flights. It was immacaulate and quiet . Downside is that it was a good 30 minute cab ride from the center of Athens for sight seeing , but Metro is right across street and cabs are readily available . Cab ride will run you about 40 Euro each way .

Great Place

We arrived very early in the morning from an overseas flight and needed sleep. It was very quiet with more than enough wonderful provisions for everything we needed.

Convenient and Restful

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the airport, however we would choose it again because its a great place to stay. The room was excellent, the staff were attentive and polite and we left feeling relaxed and ready for our flight.

Comfortable Convenience

This was an unusually good hotel for an airport hotel. It is literally a one minute walk from the terminal, and is fully equipped with an indoor pool and exercise room, a top quality restaurant as well as cafe and bar. The rooms are spacious and very clean and the bed quite comfortable. Service was courteous and accommodating.My one criticism is that the restaurants are a bit on the pricey side.

Excellent location

Best location to take a flight on next day, airport terminals just across the hotel no need for a cab. Luxurious hotel, beautiful big room,ice machine in the floor, excellent 5 star service. Only complaint was the air condition didn,t cool enough as with many of the hotels I stay in Europe. The spa swimming pool was fantastic and relaxing.
