Never been disappointed

I have stayed at the Athens Sofitel on several occasions, for different reasons. (I once flew in from Brussels for one day to attend urgent business in Athens, and stayed at the hotel). I have never been disappointed. Quite the contrary. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the staff professional and courteous. One big plus is the quality of the food served in the restaurants -- a nice, welcome change after the same fare served in most Greek restaurants. The convenience of being located at the airport cannot be overlooked either. The one "negative" point is that breakfast is not included in the price. As the hotel is not exactly a budget establishment, this may come across as being mean.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Sofitel Athens Airport

Awesome Bathrooms!

from lance92270
While this Sofitel is on the expensive side, the rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. The bathrooms (especially the showers) are fantastic.
If you have an early morning flight from ATH, a night at the Sofitel is a must.

great hotel and very convenient

from A TripAdvisor Member
I spent one night at this hotel, while visiting my family in Greece. I was avoiding Athens for years for the very reason there was no airport hotel, so I either had to spend the night in a central hotel and take the train to my hometown the next morning or stay with friends or relatives overnight. I am afraid I don't enjoy either idea any more. Central hotels are not clean. Taxi drivers are rude and charge you as much as they like, not to mention that you don't feel safe with them in the night. The Sofitel is so convenient, just a few steps from the Airport door. Luxurious. Great room, bathrobe, slippers, amazing bathroom, perfect bed. Nice spa, I had my haircut done there as well, at a very good price. Excellent breakfast. I found a good deal with Accor hotels, online, and I recommend it. Of course expensive, but that's the only option at the moment, until they decide to build more hotels in the area. Right outside the hotel you can take the train to the Railway Station, Port or anywhere you like.

Excellent but not cheap. Treat yourself!

We were completely delighted with this hotel. You can’t go wrong with the location – right across from the airport. We almost didn’t bother with a hotel. Given that we were leaving Athens on a 5 am flight, it hardly seemed worth it. But the thought of trying to catch a few hours’ sleep on the floor of the airport at the age of 40 changed our minds! We deserved a little comfort, we thought. So we paid Euro163 for one night in a queen-size room, room only. There’s no doubt that it was excessive, but one look at the room told us it was (almost!) worth the money.

The design is excellent. The lines are beautiful. The lighting is just perfect. The wooden screen over the window was ideal. Everything from the bathrobes to the slippers was luxurious. The bathroom is straight out of a design magazine. The shower is divine (I want one!). The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. It was almost too good to sleep in. We slept like logs and felt like a king and queen.

Dinner was scrumptious but again overpriced at Euro66 for two courses each. I suppose they’ll charge as much as they can get away with. After all, where’s the competition?

The service was good, pleasant and smiley (service with a smile had been sadly lacking during our 2-week trip to Athens). Checkout was quick, easy and professional. Sweeties at the reception desk was a nice touch.

We only wished we had got there earlier in the evening and could have stayed longer – even at Euro163 a night (plus another Euro22 each for breakfast, apparently - phew!).

Summary: Excellent, but not cheap. Treat yourself!

Very modern and central

from A TripAdvisor Member
We were very impressed with the Sofitel Athens Airport Hotel. It was so convenient being across the road from the Airport and so easy to get to the main attractions of Athens. We were especially impressed with the HUGE, modern bathroom and the comfortable bed. It is also very quiet in the rooms and the staff are very pleasant.

We also had lunch in the restaurant and enjoyed our meal and the surroundings. This is the perfect location because you have the best of 2 worlds- close to the Airport but very close to the City because you are across the road from public transport. I would definitely recommend.

Do Yourself A Favor

from A TripAdvisor Member
Enjoy greece but if you have to leave early in the morning, spend the nite at this hotel. comfortable, accomodating. only a two minute walk to the terminal. very contemporary (had enough ruins?), great rooms, a/c that really works, tons of amenities. good food too (watch the drink prices).
you deserve a stay here. a great ending to two weeks in greece.

Nice and luxurious but expensive

from A TripAdvisor Member
We decided to stay in this hotel during a two-day shopping trip to Athens. My hubby and i enjoy staying in airport hotels (!) so we gave it a try! Plus IKEA is at walking distance from the hotel!
The stuff was absolutely fabulous! We had a really late check-in (3 a.m) so they where happy to let as have a late check-out (2 p.m). The rooms were contemporary furnished,clean,comfortable,the bathroom to die for and no noise at all reached our tired ears!
What we didn't like was that breakfast was not included in the 213 euros price!!! So we ate in the airport's coffeshops which are excellent and of great prices.
Another off-putting thing is that one would have to pay extra for almost everything in the room (from drinking water to using the internet). Very unwelcoming since everything bears a price tag!
Parking is included in the room price, thankfully.
We would like to stay in this hotel again but the thing that would hold us back would be definitely the price

very nice hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
stayed here for one night and i found the staff to be very pleaseant.the food in the restaurant was also very tasty.the rooms in general were large and clean and i will stay here again when i visit athens again.totally faultless hotel.

Comfortable

from A TripAdvisor Member
My boyfriened and I stayed here for one night due to an overbooking on our flight. We found the place very conviently located for the airport, you just walk out the aiport and it's in front of you. It's quite expensive at over 200 euros for a standard double and without much of the 'wow' factor that you will find in places such as the Grande Bretagne, but still very clean, comfortable and full of the small luxeries that make a five star. We ate in the downstairs restaurant and it was very fresh and pleasant. Would definately go back if we happened to be stuck at Athens airport again.

Loved this hotel!

from A TripAdvisor Member
It's been quite a while since my husband and I stayed here, August of 2003, but I had to write a review, because this is literally one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. We stayed there our last night in Greece, before heading over to Cyprus, and it was fantastic! The bathroom is absolutely to die for....beautiful shower, just incredible. Room was contemporary, clean, staff was friendly. Honestly, we enjoyed this one night better than most of our entire stay in Greece! I've been waiting for the opportunity to stay at another Sofitel, hopefully it will compare to the Athens one. Yes, it was expensive, but so, so, so worth the convenience and comfort. Would positively stay there again.

Most accomodating

from JayMaria
We stayed at the Sofitel, Athens airport hotel twice. The 9th floor rooms are contemporary, comfortable and esthetically pleasing. The bed is a treat and a half. The bathroom is incredible. The staff can't wait to service you. Room service is superb. Even the lighting is carefully placed. The top floor has a great pool, full service spa, a lounge with midnight snacks and reading material. They even accomodated our son with an additional bed and a teddy bear. For a short stay or a lengthy one,Sofitel is the only place to stay. We highly recommend this beautiful hotel.

Top Local Tips for Spata

connected to airport this is great if you only have a few hours to spend in Athens and have an early flight . You can dump your bags, take the metro into town (40 minute ride) 10 euros return. You won't feel rushed the mornign of your flight because you are right on site.

Transportation The train is clean, efficient and easy to do!

Like a well earned treat! stay here....you won't be sorry!
