Sofitel Athens Airport

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Convenient and comfortable with all the amenities you would expect.

Far from Athens center, but within feet from the airport. Last train back to hotel from Athens center is around 11pm. Great for early morning flights out of Athens.

Hotel was clean and comfortable, the room was exceptional by almost any standard, but the girl checking us in seemed distant verging on rude, and I had to stand in line for 45 minutes just to check out. People would just walk up and engage the counter staff (basically taking cuts in line) while the people in line watched, it was aggravating that they helped them and no one would take charge of this.

Woman checking us in seemed to be confused about our updated reservation for a luxury room. When we paid cash for breakfast to be added and later had to have that refunded due to the times of check-out, there was no record in computer and they had to locate her to give the OK to refund the cash. Concierge was not very friendly.

Ease of access to airport was the main factor in booking there. The personnel were very helpful. Would stay there again.

Great stay! Clean room, good service, just the room service food was so so.

We arrived late in the evening on one flight and left very early the next morning on another so we had very little time in the hotel. Our check-in could not have been faster. We found that they had upgraded us to a better room though we didn't have enough time to enjoy it. They staff were terrific--efficient, responsive and ready to help.

The only place to stay a stone's throw from airport

We came off our cruise ship and stayed at the airport Sofitel. Best move as we were able to check-in early and still go into downtown Athens for the afternoon and early evening. Easy bus ride from right in front of the hotel to downtown and easy bus ride back. Got up early and were ready for our 7:15AM flight. Breakfast not as important as you leave the hotel just as they are getting breakfast ready. It is easy to grab a coffee & roll at the airport which is just across the street. No fears of having traffic or an accident hold you up from getting to the airport.

Super convenient if you have a lay over in Athens. Great comfort.

It was wonder to just walk to the hotel after getting off our plane. Also worked out perfect for our 6am departing flight. The hotel was very nice. Food was a bit expensive but very good.

Nice room, restaurant was great, staff was excellent and the location could not be more convenient to the airport. We had a 6am flight so it was perfect to stay right across the street from the airport as opposed to staying in the city somewhere. It's about 50 euros and 30-40 minutes to get to the airport from the city. Staying here the night before an early flight is a huge time/money-saver.

I arrived on a late flight and was leaving early mid morning the next day. Proximity was awesome. Walked right across the street.

Very convenient hotel to the Athens airport, across the street! Excellent salmon club sandwich, and delicious morning fruit and pancakes. Nice employees, very helpful and attentive. Only complaint is our tv wasn't working correctly.(stuck on one channel). We had already called once and it needed a new controller which was given to us immediately. Was fine for an hour then stopped working again. It was late so we went to bed, which was very comfortable!(king)

Super location just steps away from ATH baggage claim area..no taxis to flag down or shuttle buses to wait for. Would have given a 5-star rating except that the food in the restaurant is waaay overpriced.

Stayed here only one night with three people in a room for two. Had everything set up ahead of time for third person. Very convenient to airport. We dropped off luggage a week ahead of time, and hotel kept it at no charge. Enjoyed dinner and breakfast buffets in the 24-hour dining room.

Clean rooms. Staff professional. Small pool. Nice bar/lounge area. Pricey buffet. Great location for quick plane transfers.

Stayed at the Sofitel in order to catch a return flight to the US. The hotel was awesome. The staff was exceptional and the hotel is literally 150 feet from the airport. Great stay.

The service standards of the Sofitel chain are always high. If you need to leave early the next day, then this is the best choice in the Athens International Airport vicinty. They have two restaurants and a bar that serve food at very convenient times. The bed and shower are exceptional.
