"Very nice right at airport"
We chose this hotel for proximity to airport and need to meet international flight next day in early morning. I tried to find less expensive alternatives on Expedia, but did not see much on Internet . Upon being there, I can share with readers that I did not see other hotels that were right close and less expensive, as one usually sees clustered within […] shuttle distance. ( there is an IKEA store right by airport within short taxi distance!) Service is very nice, they had several levels of dining options. Public spaces are very nice and very suitable for business meetings as well as leisure travels. Concierge service recommendations were average. Given we had already been to Acropolis and its museum and the Archaeological Museum, we asked for some recommendations for afternoon and evening that were near airport, and gentleman suggested Glyfada by local bus or taxi. So we went there by bus- nothing really very impressive, and not sure why he suggested this, and it was confusing, knowing how to identify stop. ( once you are out of tourist zone, little English spoken). Room was very nice, soundproof, wonderful bathroom , clean, all the usual accouterments of 4 star. Pool and fitness room are small. Carpets in corridors could be updated, getting worn looking. Easy access to bus and metro to downtown. But be aware, Athens airport is a long way from city center.

"Great for early flight"
Attractive modern hotel - a must stay for an early flight since airport is quite a distance from Athens center. very comfortable beds. Did not hear planes during night.. Personnel very helpful with airline check-in assistance. A minor issue- would prefer a more standard shower. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very handy to the airport"
We, a party of 5, disembarked from a cruise ship early Monday morning. Upon arrival at the hotel, we were checked in immediately and were given the keys to our rooms. This early access to our rooms was unexpected and greatly appreciated! The hotel personnel were very helpful in helping us to obtain our boarding passes. A short walk across the street […] brought us to the airport terminal - very important in view of our very early flight. In all, our stay was was short but pleasant!

"so convient next to airport"
A perfect place to stay if you have an early flight since just you walk out of the hotel into the airport. It would be quite expensive to eat at the hotel so we went to the airport to have a quick meal for less $.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overnight stay before flight"
Very impressive hotel. Right there at airport. Highlights - very comfy bed and great shower. If you're leaving on an early morning flight out of Athens airport, this is your hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Airport Hotel where Amenities Outdo Location"
We arrived at the Sofitel Athens Airport worn out from travel and many hours ahead of the normal check-in time. Not only were we allowed to check in early, the reception staffer upgraded our room! Every aspect of our stay in this hotel exceeded our expectations. Our room was spacious, had double-twin beds, good reading lights, TV with international […] channels, wifi (free for 24 hours in our room). Separate toilet compartment, and bath room had a stand-up shower and an adjacent tub. Good water pressure and immediate hot water. Nice heavy waffle cotton robes available to use in the room. Attention to security was shown by the need to use one's card key to gain elevator access to any floor above the lobby. The hotel featured an exhibition of artwork in the lobby and public areas on the ground floor and its upper floors also featured both photos and paintings of a quality not normally associated with "hotel art." We ate in the restaurant and would rate both service and food as excellent. One avgolimono soup and one hearty bean soup, two caesar salads with grilled chicken, assorted Greek bread with black olive spread.....and a nice local white wine. We have stayed in many airport hotels on several continents and might well rate the Sofitel Athens as our best such experience! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Airport Hotel - Athens"
This hotel is perfect when needing to be directly near airport for an early flight. This hotel has great rooms, great beds, great food in the restaurants and has all the business conveniences. The best part is that it takes one minuted (just walk across the small street) and your in the airport !! I got to sleep an extra hour by staying here instead […] of a long taxi ride from the center of Athens! All good, no travellers stress required! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect for early departure via airlines"
Our stay was wonderful---room more than comfortable, quiet and upscale.Staff all extremely professional and accommodating. Would stay in a Sofitel again and especially the one in Athens.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location; lacks character"
The rooms are clean, small and absolutely soundproof -- almost uncomfortably so. The hotel restaurants are pricey -- 25 euros per person for a full breakfast breakfast -- but the airport offers better choices across the street. If you go, make sure to visit the pool and sauna. They are both lovely, with gorgeous windows overlooking the airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to Airport"
This was a nice hotel but the main selling point is that it's right on the Athens Airport site across from check-in, so very convenient for early morning flights. Good value for the money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worth the price to be right at airport for early f"
This is pricier than I usually pay, but I did not want to be trying to get to the airport from Athens in the very early morning, so I decided to stay at the airport Sofitel. I think it is well worth the cost in order to insure a safe and stress free departure. It is a very fine hotel. My limited experience was totally satisfactory. I did not eat at […] the restaurant or use the gym, so I don't have much to report. It was really quiet and comfortable. Excellent water pressure, lovely fixtures, deluxe linens and bedding. I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed here both when arriving in Athens and when returned from Santorini and was to fly home to the states the next morning.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Hotel at a very competative rate"
We were very happy with the high quality of the hotel service and the food in the restaurant. Also, the proximity to the airport couldn't be beat!.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent airport hotel"
The room was attractive, comfortable, and clean. We enjoyed dinner at the hotel with two other couples headed for home following a cruise. The hotel offered a delicious buffet that was worth the price in addition to an a la carte menu. The price was more than in-town Athens restaurants but consistent with dinner restaurants inside the airport.The waiter […] was friendly and helpful. Catching an early morning flight was a breeze because all we had to do was push the complimentary baggage cart, loaded for us by the hotel attendant, across the street and up an elevator to the International terminal. Who could ask for better? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Layover Hotel"
One night layover on our way home from our Santorini vacation. We also stayed one night on the way to Santorini. This place is super-convenient, literally a two minute walk across the street from the baggage claim area to the hotel lobby. It is very close. And surprisingly, very quiet. Even though our room had a view of the airport runways, we did not […] hear a thing. There is a very nice indoor pool, sauna and workout room on the ninth floor if you have time. The queen bed was very comfortable with duvet and feather bed mattress cover. Nice roomy bathroom. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel at the Athens airport"
For our last night, to make our flight easier, we stayed at this hotel at the airport. The room was nicely sized and had the interesting aspect of having the toilet in it's own room rather than in the room with the shower/sink. The restaurant in the hotel was superb - my wife and I both loved our dinners. They also have a nice lounge area although it […] can get chilly due to the activity at the entrance it has. Overall, I would recommend this hotel and stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great airport hotel"
Dinner at the hotel was marvelous (unusual for many hotels) and featured some local specialties: We had moussaka and fried feta, both excellent. And the waitress was delightful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"At the Airport"
We stayed one day and night on our way home from the Greek Islands. It was perfect for us because of the airport location. You can walk out of the terminal and into the hotel, plus it is only a hundred meters from the Athens light rail transit station. You can be at the Acropolis in about 30 minutes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everyone at the hotel was lovely, the location could not be more convenient for getting to the airport. Has a pedicure at the Spa that was great and the room service was amongst the best I've had.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved it here!"
The Best being right next to the airport and comfortable too!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Smoke smell in rooms"
We stayed here for one night prior to an early flight out of Athens airport. The location is great for that, being directly across the street. The hotel itself is nicely decorated and the rooms are efficiently but comfortably laid out. However, our problem was the pervasive cigarette smoke smell. We informed mgmt of this upon arrival. It was so bad, […] I could barely even stand in that room for the call back from the front desk with the room number change (about 5 minutes). It smelled like someone right next door was smoking in their room, though we couldn't be soon. The front desk arranged another room for us, on the floor directly above the old room (not sure if that was the best idea, given the smell). It smelled okay at first, but later on we got the cigarette smell again. Not as strong as the first room, but still noticeable. My eyes were burning and I coughed all night-- not a great night's sleep before a super early flight. The bed was okay, but they don't put a top sheet on for some reason, so all you have is this really heavy down duvet that gets really warm, especially with the pillow topper on the mattress. So I was too hot and choking on cigarette smoke all night: not really something I can recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Had an early morning flight and determined the best solution was to stay at the airport hotel rather than hassling with morning traffic. Extremely quiet. Accommodation was terrific. Clean, easy to walk to the airport in the morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"right across the street from the Airport."
Neede a hotel close to the airport since we were leaving really early the next day. It was wonderful and very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel At the airport"
Very convenient to the Airport. The restaurent on the 9th floor was good but very Pricey. 19.50 Euros for the Soup!!! That is ridiculous. But the Restaurent Staff was Nice. They gave us a Complementory Appetiser.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel for Overnight in Athena Airport area"
Convenient location to airport for the overnight stay on the way to Santorini. Clean, comfortable, and quiet for an airport hotel. Can't say much else, as we only checked in, slept overnight, and left early the next morning!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay here every year, love the place"
Convenient to airport and subway!!! Stay here every year at the end of our Greece travels.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had flown to Athens from our stay on Crete and were flying to the US early the next morning. This hotel is across from the airport and made it very easy to walk over in plenty of time for our flight (allow 2 hours before your flight). It made for a less stressful time and was worth the room rate. We did not eat meals at the hotel, however, due to […] their cost. It was just as easy to walk to the airport and eat at their restaurants. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Airport Stay in Athens"
I chose a hotel that was closest to the airport. We didn't get to the hotel until evening, stayed overnight and left in the morning, so didn't have much time to enjoy the hotel. We had asked the hotel if they would keep out large bags while we went to Sandarini for 4 days and they did with no charge (except tip for retrieving them.) That was a big benefit […] for us and was quite pleased that they would do it. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel because we thought it was overpriced since we don't eat much at breakfast. It would be nice to have a continental breakfast at a reduced rate. Hotel was very nice and bed was very, very comfortable. Overall good experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Worth the money."
We had an 11-hr layover in Athens. This hotel was walking distance from the terminal, had a great restaurant, and was a welcome alternative to sleeping in the terminal chairs.Genuine Expedia guest review

"very conveniently located in front of the airport"
we arrived at 8 a.m. and they helped having the room ready by 10 a.m., 2 hours prior to check in, we really appreciated that since we were coming on an early flight. Excellent location if you do not want to pay the taxi fares to Athens, but it should absolutely include breaksfast...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easiest place to stay for an early morning flight"
Expensive but it was worth it for our 9:15 am flight out of Athens.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, Convienient Hotel at the Airport"
This was the perfect place to layover on our way to Santorini following our 16 hour trip from Oregon. The hotel is directly across the street from the Athens airport baggage claim area, so a very easy, quick walk -- by far the most convenient "layover hotel" we've stayed in. Plus the hotel was extremely quiet. I'm not sure if Athens airport suspends […] flights at night, but we didn't hear any airport noise at all from our room. The queen bed was very comfortable with duvet comforter and what felt like a feather bed cover on the mattress. We checked into the hotel about 6:30pm, showered and were in bed by 8 and got a great night's sleep before departing for Santorini the next morning. The shower area was relatively large and well appointed. We would definitely stay here again if making connections in Athens. The only negative was the prices for room service -- very high. We didn't go for the eight Euro for coffee, lol. Much better to walk across the street, check in, then choose from a nice selection of places to have breakfast before boarding.

This hotel was pricey but worth it. Easy access to the Metro and the airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel across the street from airport"
This hotel was a great option for us because we had an early morning flight out of Athens the following morning, and it was easier to stay there than try and commute from the center of Athens at 5am. Very comfortable and clean- they have a spa, pool, restuarant and bar and the staff was friendly and attentive. The bed was very comfortable as well. The […] restaurant seemed pricey for what you were getting, but truthfully it's pretty much your ONLY option. We ended up going across the street to the airport to eat because we didn't feel like paying that much for hotel food. But I would highly recommend staying there if you need to fly out of Athens early in the morning or you get into Athens late at night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel"
Very convenient to airport, just across the walkway. Very nice room, with fabulous beds and nice bathroom. Nice quick check-in and out. On time wake-up call.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rip off: If this hotel were anywhere else, it would cost half the price. It's a monopoly, because there are no other hotels nearby. This hotel shamelessly over charges for everything, rooms, food, drinks. Something needs to be done to provide affordable options for travellers forced to stay near the airportGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent services, great breakfast buffet!"
I loved everything, at the level of a true 4 star hotel!! Would come back. I took advantage of the Spa as well. Thanks to Dora for a great massage - the best massage of my life!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right at airport"
Great for early flights out of Athens - and good food at the restaurant alsoGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Although my stay was very brief, checking in late and leaving very early the next morning to catch a flight I found the rooms very comfortable nice bathrooms and very pleasant staff. Didn't like that they cannot accommidate more than 2 people per room as I was traveling with my sister and her teenage son. That made for a very expensive night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient to the airport"
We have being staying at this hotel every few years the night before we fly back to USA. The rooms have deteriorated and desperately need renovation. The carpet in the room is dirty and the shower and bath tub full of fungus. The lobby is nice and the stuff friendly, but can't be a **** hotel with the showers in such terrible condition.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel connected to airport"
Great place to stay if your rolling into Athens late at night and flying out 1st thing in the morning. Hotel is steps out if the airport and had a great early breakfast available too.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the airport, but not much else"
We had an early flight so we spent our last night at the hotel. It was very nice, but we ended up eating at the airport since it was cheaper than the restaurants at the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Across from ATH airport..."
Waited a bit to check-in as it's the only hotel right across the street from the airport. Everyone who got off the same flight as me was checking in. Hotel staff upgraded me to the executive suites because I was their winner of the day?! Who cares.. love upgrades!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient for early flights"
Overall experience was good but the hotel rooms seem to be in need of a deep cleaning. The carpets are grubby and stained and these likely contribute to the musty odor that permeates the place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was wonderful and convenient. Comfortable surroundings.Genuine Expedia guest review
