One Night in Athens Airport

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

jandjpickering 26/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Excellent as usual. Friendly professional staff at check in. The staff in the bar were attentive and friendly. Great location for travelling in and out of central Athens and for onward flights. All food and service was excellent.

Almost always a good experience

551eo 25/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

I have stayed here dozens of times and with the exception of a few times when the rooms needed updating, I have always had a good experience at the Sofitel Athens Airport. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and there is no disturbing noise in spite of planes constantly taking off and landing.

Thank you 551eo for your review. We are delighted to read that you always appreciated the cleanliness, comfort and soundproofing of your room on your stays in our hotel and thank you for your loyalty to Sofitel Athens Airport. My team and I hope to have more opportunities in the future to welcome you back and thank you once again for your precious feedback. Best regards, George Stavrou

M2599EAmail 24/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Despite the fact that I have rated our stay as very good, It was slightly spoiled by the fact that my booking did not have breakfast included, when I clearly stated that I wanted breakfast included, I must say that your booking website is one of the worst that I have encountered.

What excellent should be all about

gregspan 20/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

In short; Everything was just as it should be. Top marks as always at this hotel. From the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out. The staff are always on top of your every need. I have been staying here for years and they never have failed me yet.

Thank you gregspan for your loyalty to Sofitel Athens Airport and for your warm input. Comments like yours give us a great motivation in our efforts to maintain the high standards of service that Sofitel Hotels are known for. My team and I thank you once again for your valuable feedback and look forward to your next visits for many more memorable experiences in our premises. Best regards, George Stavrou

The most comfortable beds

Bromhall 20/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Minutes from the terminal, Beautiful large room, great bathroom, very quiet, Food service however typically expensive in a 5 star hotel. A great spot to relax after or before a long flight and easy to have a day in Athens town if staying for a couple of days

Great decision

Victoria K. Families - 19/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Came off cruise ship and had an overnight before flight following day. We have visited Athens twice so decided to skip any sightseeing. So glad we stayed at Sofitel Athens Airport! Didn’t hear any airplane noises at all! Great to be able to walk across the street to terminal. Was so easy! Bed comfortable. Rooms clean. Nice updated bathroom with wonderful soaker tub. Menu in restaurant extremely limited and pricey but food was good. Full buffet breakfast which was included was very good!

Linda L 09/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Beautiful hotel....very clean and well organized. Our room was very nice and comfortable. The front desk assistants were friendly and very helpful. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good. The housekeep staff were/are wonderful providing extra coffee for us. The airport is a short walk across the drop off lane of traffic. Very convenient!

Thank you Linda L for your compliments and great feedback. Our continuous aim is to offer our guests the most comfortable stay with high standards of service and your warm input on our staff is highly appreciated and shared with them. We do value your patronage and look forward to your next visits for many more relaxing and enjoyable experiences in our premises. Best regards, George Stavrou

A very nice hotel with probably one of the most expensive bars ever and some service issues

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Trip_Datum 09/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

I stayed one night there in a junior suite and the room was fantastic. Very nice outline, excellent arrangements in the room and extremely good noise isolation (you don't hear any noise from the planes). The staff is helpful in general, the common areas are well designed, the breakfast offers very good quality and variety of items. There are three issues that make me say this is an average hotel and not a very good one and here they are: 1. In the breakfast area the staff was speaking to each other so loud that everyone could hear them. And to make things worse the staff was talking negatively about a specific couple of guests probably not realizing that we could understand them speaking in Greek. And their comments were not polite and were even discriminatory (the 2 staff were talking negatively about a guy couple). My wife mentioned this to the restaurant manager 2. It seems there is a problem with the IT systems in the hotel. First issue is that our online check-in was never registered. Second that our card key didn't work in one case and even when I went to the reception to change the card it was not working again. 3. Last but not least. I've been in hundreds of hotels including very luxury ones. The price of the alcohol in the bar of Sofitel was shocking. Fifteen euros for a JW Black Label that was no more than 30 ml shot. I was really shocked by this price. So my humble advice: nice place to stay if you want to be close to the airport but watch out for the bar prices be aware that the staff might gossip on you.

Dear Trip_Datum, Thank you for staying at Sofitel Athens Airport and sharing your experience. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed the comfort and soundproofing of your junior suite as well as the quality and variety of our breakfast offer. On the other hand, we do express our sincere apologies for the behavior of our staff at breakfast. Please be reassured that this is an unfortunate isolated occurrence and does not reflect the usual level of service that we provide to our guests. We have also well received your feedback for our alcohol prices and the issue with the room key. Additionally, as far as the online check-in is concerned, kindly be informed that the hotel receives directly in its reservation system all information provided by the guest which is double checked upon arrival to the hotel. There might have been a technical issue during the process of the online check-in. Finally, my team and I thank you for your constructive and valuable comments and look forward to your next visit for a brand new experience in our premises. Best regards, George Stavrou

R F. H. Couples - 07/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

My wife and I always use your Hotel at the airport (for many years) simply because we like the location and normally the service. However when we arrived on Tuesday 2nd November 18.30 we decided to have a drink and a dinner in the restaurant downstairs (now all black colour). The table was dirty not been cleaned. After calling somebody several times one of the waiters who did not seem to be interested came cleaned it a little bit and gave us two Menus. Both dirty full of grease prints terrible a 5 star Hotel.... that is. Then I called the Manager and explained that this is below an acceptable level. He was listening and said sorry brought us two new Menus one of them full of grease prints....again How on earth can you tolerate this ? He then took care of us. However he could have offered us a drink to apologise on behalf of the Hotel restaurant. Nothing. and the final bill was well over 80.-- Euro. The food was fine as usual. Needless to say we found this not acceptable. Now please don't say this is because of the corona virus situation as we paid the full price for the Hotel.

Pleasant, well-located, friendly....perfect for a 17 hour lay-over

A. H. W. Couples - 05/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very nice, pleasant, well-run, nice room. The only negative comment would be the shock of the restaurant prices compared to other parts of Greece. Not very good value, despite the convenience of location. Other than that, perfect for a 17-hour layover.

Very well located

Stopped for one night after tiring journey from Leros. Great to only have to walk a short distance from 'A' terminal and to have a wonderful bed to sleep in!

Our entire experience with Sofitel Athens Airport was fantastic. The check-in process was quick and easy; the wait staff were cordial and very professional. I would highly recommend anyone to stay at this hotel.

It should really be a Novotel

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

longhaulfromlondon 29/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

I've stayed at the Sofitel, Athens Airport many times but obviously in the current climate, not for about eighteen months. Nothing has improved but pricing has increased dramatically to a point where I paid €180 for a room for the night. There is nothing special about this hotel in any way at all and at present the Executive Club Lounge remains closed apparently due to local regulations but over the way in the terminal, all the airport lounges are open, it doesn't make sense. Only one restaurant is open and that has an offering the same as any taverna in any street in any Greek town the catch being here you pay three times the price for the same dishes. I find the staff functional rather than pleasant or welcoming, they do their jobs and no more. I was also as a gold card holder offered the usual voucher for a complimentary drink in the bar - an offering across all Accor properties. The offer excludes spirits and champagne. I asked for a particular glass of wine but was told I couldn't have it and only house wine was available. I pointed to the restriction on the voucher and was told it was the 'manager's policy' that only house wine would be served. I asked to speak to the manager who never came but I was offered the wine I wanted after consultation among the bar staff. Had I asked for something expensive? The wine I wanted was 50c more expensive than the house wine bearing in mind my room charge was €180 for a single night. As things are going further downhill here than they already had, I've cancelled a further stay in the coming month, it's easy to get in a taxi at the airport and head a bit further away to spend a lot less and have a better stay. I suggest others do too. Nothing about this hotel is a Sofitel and it's even way above their usual price point in Europe for what is an average Novotel.

Thank you longhaulfromlondon for your loyalty to Sofitel Athens Airport and for taking the time to write and let us know about your recent stay. My team and I were most concerned to receive your feedback and regret to hear that your overall experience in our hotel did not meet your expectations. Please be reassured that all the points you have mentioned are dully noted as our guests' comments and remarks are very important for us in our continuous efforts for further improvement. We thank you once again for your valuable feedback that help us better understand your expectations. Best regards, George Stavrou

Walking distance to the Airport

jross60 29/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

We stayed the night before our departure from Athens. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. We arrived early after our departure from a cruise. They were able to get us into our room early. The room is very nice and quiet, even though you are right next to a busy airport. We would stay here again if we were in Athens.

Peaceful stay prior to a long journey

We had an excellent stay here. Plus the restaurant was great and so convenient! The rooms were very nice and the sleep was so comfortable. There is no better place to be for coming or going to your flight.

Thank you E2891GEpatricia for your wonderful review. My team and I are thrilled to learn that you enjoyed all aspects of your stay with us from the comfort of your room to your dining experience. We look forward to your next visits on your future stopovers in Athens and thank you once again for your precious comments. Best regards, George Stavrou
