"Great hotel in desperate need of refurbishing"
Sofitel Athens Airport is a godsend for stranded passengers or those with difficult connections. We stayed twice in June and twice in years past. Our first stay in June was on the Executive floors and was a total rip-off.... double the price with a dreary unstaffed lounge. Not what we expected after similar executive floors around the world. However, […] our second stay was in a room that had threadbare carpeting, a moldy shower and a floor that was beyond the need to refurbish. What is good: 1. the rooms are totally soundproof; 2. breakfast is amazing and well worth the money; 3. you can walk across the street to the terminal. Conclusion: unless this hotel is completely redone we will regretfully look for alternatives. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Best airport hotel ever"
This is the best airport hotel ever. It is very luxurious, although the rooms are a bit small. You can walk across the street, no shuttle or taxi necessary. It is a bit expensive, but it is worth it. We never eat at the hotel because it is too expensive but we go across the street to the airport and eat at the lovely restaurants there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Booked panoramic view I got 3rd floor facing street and door of airport. Informed reception no good answer.also breakfast expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overnight stay @ Sofitel airport Athens."
Stayed overnight at this Sofitel hotel. Very convenient & easy access to airport terminals for an early departure the next morning. The restaurant has good selection & good food although was a little slow. Room was clean & comfy, great amenities. Will definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Triple billed for hotel room"
First at check out I was overcharged and had to produce my Expedia reservation to adjust rate. Then when I returned to the United States I notice a second charge for approximately twice the nightly rate of the room. When I tried to contact the hotel I was told that because it was a Saturday no one could address this issue until Monday. Because I paid […] for the hotel with my debit card the over charge is listed as a pending debit and my available balance is reduced by the amount of the overcharged.

"Excellent location next to the Athens airport"
It's an interesting experience for us to walk from the terminal directly to the airport, in just 2 minutes.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was cool. Athens rocks!!! Bought the cab driver yogurt. We all are some in the cab ride back. The metro was clean and easy to navigate. We took pictures of the Parthenon. The people of Greece are so friendly!Genuine Expedia guest review
Appreciated the convenient location. We had a 6:30 am flight the next morning and booked the last night of our vacation close to the airport. Great idea!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for early or late flights"
This location is great when you need access to the airport early in the morning or late at night. I little pricey, but it is really nice. Also, they have an outdoor patio which is a great option.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for an airport hotel"
Hotel feels like it could use a bit of an update but is generally very clean and pleasant. Didn't like that the rooftop restaurant is closed on Sunday and Monday (this is an airport hotel that is 45 minutes from downtown). Also, the service in the lobby restaurant was very slow. Even after the waitress acknowledged she would be coming over she instead […] continued to clean dirty tables for the next 5-7 minutes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient and comfy Hotel right near airport"
We only stayed for one night so that we could catch an international flight the following morning. The hotel staff was excellent. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very convenient to airport."
We were able to walk from the airport to the hotel which was very welcome after a long flight. the hotel was very nice, but I would have preferred a Greek rather than a French restaurant onsite.Genuine Expedia guest review
For the price of this hotel stay we found that the property itself was very worn down. Everything from the carpet to the menus and informational pamphlets in the room showed wear. However, for a very early morning flight, the location was a necessary stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very convenient for a quick stay and flight out the next AM. Executive floor has free drinks and sandwiches and sweets, no need for a proper dinner expense! Nice free breakfast also included with the room category. Across the street from the airport is also very convenientGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient in and out of Athens"
First-rate hotel literally 1-minute walk from the airport terminal. W flew in from Santorini, walked to the hotel, stayed the night, then walked back to the airport the next day for our flight to the US.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect airport hotel"
We flew in from santorini , we were flying out early the next a.m. And had tons of luggage. Can't find a nicer hotel with best airport location. Three restaurants to choose from, super comfy bed. Expensive but worth every penny.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location Location Location"
Good solid hotel experience. The greatest benefit to staying here is the fact that the hotel is the only one located within direct proximity to the airport. Being located directly across the street from the main terminal, the convenience - and peace of mind - of being able to simply walk between the hotel and the airport for an early morning departure […] was well worth the money spent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Open the doors and walk out to the airport"
Don't be frightened of this luxury hotel. They have rooms for us normal folk too (it's pricey, but a great splurge). They are literally in the airport premises. It's a great hotel for your last night in Athens. No worries about catching a cab, bus, or public transport. You walk out of the hotel, cross the street and you walk into the doors of the airport. […] I spent my last evening in Athens, swimming in their indoor pool, watching the sunset over a cocktail on the top floor bar, and then going to bed knowing that I am already at the airport. They have great sound insulating windows because I didn't hear the planes at all. I don't know why other major city airports don't have a nice hotel as convenient to the airport as Sofitel. Brillant!

Stayed at the Sofitel to catch an early flight the next morning and the location is 30 steps from the entrance to the terminal. Room was surprisingly large and service was great. The bathroom had a separate tub and shower and was spacious. Food at the restaurant was excellent. Overall, very comfortable, just a little expensive and, of course, it's at […] the airport.

"Convenient and very comfortable"
We knew ahead of time that when our ship docked in Athens after a week of sailing in Turkey and Greece, we would not have enough time to get to our transatlantic flight, so we chose the Sofitel as a place to relax for 24 hours that was near the airport for the following morning. It could not have been more convenient--right across the street. We had […] lunch in one of the many options in the airport, then had a very good dinner in one of the hotel's two restaurants. We were able to print our boarding passes in the hotel's business center, and the next morning we rolled our suitcases the short distance to the check-in counters. The room was comfortable and quiet, and everything worked well, including the free WiFi. Could not have been more pleased. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best Airport Hotel Ever"
We were so happy when we arrived at the Athens Sofitel. We have been constantly disappointed with airport hotels in Europe and the US and were not expecting much. But from the moment we arrived at the Sofitel Athens hotel we were delighted. The staff is professional and courteous. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed. The location could […] not have been better. We were heading home from the Greek islands, stopping over in Athens. It feels like a downtown, upscale hotel, rather than an "airport" hotel. We would definitely recommend it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"2 minute walk from hotel and to metro"
Convenient location. 2 minute walk from the airport and 2 minute walk to the metro downtown.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Across street from Airport"
Everything was excellent. No complaints. As soon as we crossed the street, the bell hops were there to assist with our luggage. Much appreciated. Comfortable beds, and absolutely no noise permeated the walls from either neighbors or airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
"comfortable airport hotel. perfect place to rest."
we stayed here to get a good night's sleep after a trans-atlantic flight and before heading to islands. Very convenient and comfortable. would recommend it highly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable and convenient"
We booked a room at this hotel because we had a early flight out in the morning. The hotel is just across the crosswalk from the airport, so we could sleep in a bit more. The room was well appointed and quite posh. Although we were right at the airport you would never had known it, it was so quiet. If for no other reason, stay here to experience the […] shower! Breakfast was expensive so we grabbed something in the airport. The Metro runs right to the airport, so we went into Athens to sight see because we had the afternoon free. Very easy to use.

"Upscale hotel very convenient from the airport."
A group of 5 couples stayed there for one night after a week in Santorini. These comments are shared by all 5 couples. Rooms are relatively small as is the European standard.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Sofitel quality, amazing location next to airport"
Great hotel, comfortable bed, easy wifi, great restaurant food, and literally across from Athens airport saving expensive taxi fares. I will stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You can't beat it if you need it!"
We stayed here just to catch our flight home the next morning. Check in was a breeze at 10pm. The hotel is modern, clean and quiet. I never heard an airplane in our 3rd floor room. Nicely appointed. Definitely worth staying here based on convenience alone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Early morning flight?"
This first rate hotel is right at the airport and is very convenient for an early morning flight.Genuine Expedia guest review

The Sofitel has wonderful staff, especially the desk clerks who know how to anticipate your needs. The bedding is very comfortable and the TV has a variety of channels. Finally, the shower was a soothing reprieve after a long day of travel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great for post cruise stay"
We enjoyed our stay . Staff were very friendly and helpfull. We arrived at hotel around 11am after getting off our cruise that morning and taking their bus transportation to the airport . Picked up our luggage and walked to hotel across the street and the same when we were leaving the following day . Hotel very well built with superb insulation so you […] rarely heard any airplane noise despite being adjacent to airport. hotel has European flare but very nice. We also got any early check in at 11 am as room available so that was very nice.We highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and relaxing"
The bathroom is very nice and comfortable, beside the toilet room too little and without the sink to wash your hands before leaving the room. The mattress is fantastic!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great pool and restaurant and ... shower!"
Excellent restaurant in the hotel, and the pool has a superb view (though note that it's not particularly large for swimming). We appreciated the sauna as well. Also, though our room lacked a view (luggage ramp), the shower was perhaps the best I've seen in my life: a large, full-bathroom rain shower.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Restful place to stay before flight"
The convenience of location to the airport was wonderful - walking distance! The room was comfortable, with all the amenities. Very quiet and restful for a hotel so close to an airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Strategically placed close to airport"
Nice environment. Helpful staff. Restaurant is expensive. Very quiet and clean room. The higher the price the higher the floor and the better the view. Across the street is the airport. Book early for best prices. I would definitely recommend it and plan to stay again when my flight time is pressing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very conveniently located near airport"
It was wonderful being able to walk across the street from the airport and arrive at our hotel. Very comfortable except that the room was warm and hard to cool off even though we stayed in Spring and the temperature outdoors was cool. The bed had only a down comforter and no extra top sheet so that the covering was additional warmth. Next visit (this […] week) I will request a top sheet. Otherwise, definitely an excellent choice of places to stay while flying in and out of Athens! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel conveniently located next to airport"
Chose Sofitel Athens because of the convenient location relative to the airport and rental car return. The location couldn't be more convenient, just steps away from both. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very nice and clean, the shower was excellent and the bed was big and comfy. The sauna and pool area on the top […] floor are very nice and provide a nice view as well. Only small complaint is the wifi was a little slow. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay again if the need to be close to the airport presented itself. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very convenient and comfortable."
Just overnight during a journey, but very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel near airport"
The hotel was very nice. We had a very early flight and it was a two minute walk to the terminal. The room was well appointed and very clean. The restaurant was expensive. All in all, it served its purpose of being at the airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
