Very convenient, ideal for the traveller

We thought the hotel was perfect in every way. As I explained to the receptionist, the only let down was that the air conditioning was not working and as we only realised it at 1.00am we just lived with it. My wife thought the bed and bedding were superb.

Convenient, excellent service

Right across from the airport doors, so it doesn't get any more convenient if you have an early-morning flight. The hotel upgraded me at check-in, which was a pleasant surprise. The only problem was a barely-functioning A/C, but I was only staying for one night, so I just put up with it.

Early flight? Sofitel is the place

Sofitel is a great hotel if you want to stay literally next door to the airport. We had an early 6:30am flight and had no interest in adding time to take subway or taxi from Athens to airport in the morning. The hotel is barely a 5 min walk from the airport entrance. The hotel room was clean, bed comfy, large bathroom and wifi worked pretty well. Price was reasonable as well. I only give it 4 stars for location because if you want to head into city you are looking at 40 min to an hour subway ride depending where you are staying. We booked this for our last day in Athens and it was perfect.

Perfect hotel to stay close to Athen airport

If you need to stay in Athen for a night before to catch an early flight this hotel is the best option. It is also very close to the train to go to Athen center

Perfect Location to Airport

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.
