Sofitel Athens always provides excellent service to guests….extremely convenient location, friendly and professional staff members, great food, wonderful rooms including great showers, and quite possibly the most comfortable bed ever!!!!

Great Location, Great Staff

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Angela M. Families - 17/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Spent two separate dates in the hotel. Both times the hotel's location and welcoming professional staff made the stays the best we had experienced in hotel lodging in quite some time.

Best little airport Hotel ever.....!!!

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Nikki F. Solo - 15/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Honestly, I wish every international airport had as sweet a Hotel conveniently located as the Sofitel -Athens offers. Affordable, clean, friendly, very decent bar and restaurant, with the jewel being their excellent professional staff which even during the challenges of Covid kept a great perspective and professional demeanor. While, standing in the check-in line I witnessed some seriously outrageous guests check-in with ridiculous requests and the front desk didn't skip a beat while managing to smile all the while, bravo, to the staff! Had a wonderful reasonably priced massage during my layover and that was excellent, as well! Couple the fact it is literally a two minute walk to the Hotel after picking up your bags...I wouldn't consider any other options while transiting Athens in the future....thank you, Sofitel, well done!

Great Stay!

aeworthington Couples - 13/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Great beds and great bathrooms and a very convenient place to stay when travelling via Athens airport. Easy journey to central Athens on the Xpress bus (24 hour service) which stops just outside the hotel.

Thank you aeworthington for staying at Sofitel Athens Airport and sharing your experience. We continuously strive to provide a relaxing stay to our guests with high standards of service and it is a true pleasure to receive your compliments. My team and I look forward to your future visits on your next stopovers in Athens and thank you once again for your motivating words. Best regards, George Stavrou

I was disappointed. I’ve stayed at this property for many years.

d0neflying 13/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Shower control was broken. I had to take a shower in my son and girlfriend’s room. No empathy really. That was disappointing and no compensation. Being that I stayed in the more expensive newly renovated portion of the hotel. Their solution was move up 4 floors after I had unpacked or showering in my other room I just feel like it was handled poorly Again, I have stayed at this property over 15 years

Dear d0neflying, thank you for your loyalty to Sofitel Athens Airport. We regret to hear that your most recent visit to our hotel has not been memorable and express our sincere apologies for the technical issue with your shower. Please be reassured that your feedback is very important for us as guest comfort and satisfaction is our top priority. My team and I thank you once again for your constructive comments and hope that you will give us the opportunity to regain your confidence in us on a future stay in our hotel. Best regards, George Stavrou

Suited us really well to stay there as our plane landed very late. The staff are very helpful and the breakfast just right. This is the second time we've stayed there and we will certainly stay at Sofitel Athens again.

cstuyvesant 08/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

This is our fourth time staying at the Sofitel Athens Airport hotel and it continues to deliver in all respects. The room was lovely, the staff were friendly and accommodating to our needs. The bar and restaurants offered delicious food and drinks. All this within steps of the airport. It is the perfect hotel for travelers.

Guest satisfaction is what we continuously strive for and it is a true pleasure to receive your compliments for our facilities and services.

Lgp Solo - 04/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I have seen a steady decline in the facilities over the years. My recent stay was in Room 438, an “updated” suite : bed pillows are worn and old. Bathrobes are worn and old. Seating/living room area is too dark. Hot /Cold in shower needs maintenance: either boiling hot or freezing cold - water does not stay at an even temp. Fingerprints on inside of room door lock - not clean. Room decor office like and dark - not welcoming. Artemis Lounge outside is filthy. Tables and chairs are not wiped down. Mesoghaia Restaurant : more selection to include lighter less heavy items needed on menu. Restaurant staff should not have loud discussions and meetings in dining area. Front Desk: a separate area should be made for airline staff for their check in check out - Lobby area is too congested. However front desk staff and lobby staff very attentive. All in all my problem was with cleanliness - higher attention needed especially during COVID.

vinnyb4000 04/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Very convenient location, probably the best airport hotel I have ever stayed at. If you plan on doing anything in the city, it is quite far about 30 mins but cannot beat the proximity to the airport especially if you are transferring to any other greek island.

Thank you vinnyb4000 for your review. It is a true pleasure to learn that you enjoyed your stay at Sofitel Athens Airport. Your warm input is the best source of motivation for our team. We hope to have more opportunities in the future to welcome you back and thank you once again for your feedback. Best regards, George Stavrou

Bien situé pour un transit de qualité

Alex Solo - 30/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I was looking for a transit at Athens before taking a flight to the Cyclades. Good morning experience at the hotel. Very complete offer and guest are well taken care of. I recommend.

Satisfactory stay but no wow factor

Customer review rating 3.5/5

A A. Couples - 26/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Receptionist very good service, porters helpful. Terrace service slow and staff not as friendly as on previous stays. The tea and coffee amenities are usually sparse, but housekeeping were very prompt in supplying additional items on request. One thing to note: on the past few stays the bedding at this hotel seems to be damp or not properly aired. This spoils my sleep as I feel cold all night, even with a heavy duvet. Occasionally a gift is left in the room but other times nothing. Having stayed at the Sofitel Athens many times, several times each year, for the past 17 years or so , I would expect some recognition.

Well located, clean, excellent service

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Georgette M. Couples - 25/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Both times I stayed here this summer and it was an excellent experience. I had a wonderful stay, the staff was very helpful and professional and polite. The rooms are clean and spacious and overall the location is excellent. Thank you so much for having us we will be returning next year!

Convenient for connections in and out of Athens

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

tonyhadzi 23/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

It's a convenient location for Airport only access - there is no other facility in the area, so you are pretty much stuck to eat there etc. Expensive and limited menu. Good for overnight stay to catch an early morning flight

Perfect location for flights from Athens airport

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Midms Families - 22/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Comfortable rooms, polite, helpful staff, fairly limited but adequate dinner menu for a couple of nights, pricey.

We stayed one night two people. Chose the hotel due to its location which is perfect for early or simply morning departures. Proactivity of Personnel, overall service and room/bed quality was simply top. Thank you to the entire team.

Alison W 20/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

You cannot beat this hotel in location for the airport, and inspite of the resultant high turnover of guests. the hotel is clean and the staff friendly. The breakfast buffet remains extensive and works well under virus conditions

Thank you Alison W for staying at Sofitel Athens Airport and sharing your experience. It is a true pleasure to learn that you had a relaxing stay in our hotel and that you particularly appreciated the cleanliness, the friendliness of the team and the buffet breakfast. My team and I look forward to your next visits on future opportunities. Best regards, George Stavrou
