NowVoyager100 24/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

We regularly stay at the Athens Airport Sofitel when we are en route or returning from Greece. It is such a welcome site when you come through customs - just a few paces away over the road. You can have dinner outside, and would hardly know you are at an airport hotel. They have had a recent refurb and the rooms were in very good condition.

Great staff

cathalo80 20/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Probably one of the best airport hotels I have stayed at. I have stayed here multiple times over the year on nights before an early morning flight. You just cannot beat the location. 5 minutes from the hotel door to the Aegean check in counter. A few minutes longer for other airlines / international flights. The rooms in the hotel are modern and sleek. The breakfast is really good and starts at 5:30 AM. My only complaint is that I didn’t get to spend more time in bed – the bedding is awesome.

Thank you cathalo80 for your loyalty to Sofitel Athens Airport and for your warm feedback. It is rewarding to read that you always have a relaxing stay with us. Your compliments for the room and breakfast are highly appreciated as we care about our guests' well-being and comfort. My team and I hope to have more opportunities in the future to welcome you back for many more memorable experiences in our premises and thank you once again for your precious feedback. Best regards, George Stavrou

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.....!!!

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!

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.

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.

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
