The location was incredible. The hotel has been completely remodeled and looked brand new! The staff was terrific. Cab rides into town or easy and inexpensive and the proximity to the airport was remarkable. Best breakfast buffet with out question!

Charles H TripAdvisor review

I will say having spent the last three weeks staying in as many hotels as I have fingers and toes, Sofitel Athens Airport, exceeded all my expectations. Staff were immediately available with a warm friendly smile during the checkin process. Hotel porter transporting my luggage to the room was helpful pleasant and offered a warm smile throughout the process. The accommodations were meticulously clean and organized. Air Conditioning & Heating was functioning and available in the room should it be required. Being situated opposite the airport you would believe air traffic noise would be a concern, not at all here. The room was well sound proofed. The restaurant, which I used for both dinner and breakfast, offered a wide selection foods. Foods that were well prepared and presented. Again, I found the restaurant to be meticulously clean and well staffed. The Breakfast Menu was a Buffet Style and meeting all needs. The staff being very attentive and friendly. For anyone travelling in and out of Athens by air and then road, this would and is an ideal spot to start your journey. Directly across the street from the terminal- (3 minute walk) and especially anyone with mobility concerns have access to both terminal levels once you have crossed the street. Overall, I have to give (5) stars. See my rating below.

As with all of our previous stays, the stay was wonderful. It is so easy to walk to the airport. Sofitel is a perfect transition from holiday travels to the flight home. We were able to return home well rested.

jaejhall TripAdvisor review

Everything about ourstay at The Sofitel Athens was first class. At check- in evrerything was waiting for us so we were in our room within a few minutes. The room and bathroom was prepared perfectly and we felt all Covid precautions had been taken. Meals in the restaurant were very good and served by very friendly and helpful staff. We also visited the bar and once again were served in a friendly and professional manner. We had a fast check out, so we were straight into the airport with no delay. Our whole stay was excellent and we will most certainly return here in the future.

Thank you jaejhall for your warm feedback. Please be reassured that we continuously try to offer top quality service and accommodation standards to all our guests. Therefore, it is highly motivating to learn that you enjoyed all aspects of your stay with us. My team and I look forward to many opportunities of welcoming you again to Sofitel Athens Airport and thank you once again for sharing your experience. Best regards, George Stavrou

Great location for early morning flights

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Carly Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is located only steps from the airport exit doors. This is a great option for international travelers who have early AM flights. Our room was clean, dark, and stocked with all the essentials we need to clean up and get a good night’s rest before heading back to the airport at 3am.

Great service.

As usual, our stay was really lovely - from the welcome when we checked in, our drink in the bar in the evening, the magnificent bed (what a great sleep we had) and the breakfast the following morning. Cannot fault the Sofitel - simply the best.

Beautiful hotel, we had problems

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Tim L. Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel was beautiful, staff was friendly, room was nice. We had high expectations upon getting to the room and then it all fell apart. Our air conditioner wouldn’t cool the room below 22 Celsius. We changed rooms and that room also would not get below 22 Celsius. The maintenance man adjusted the vent blades, put his hand 4” from the vent and told us, “See? It’s cold.” No effort to fix it. We lost power to the room three times during the night and woke up to 24 degrees Celsius. So, it was warm and we slept poorly. Not a great way to start a 16 hour travel day. Service in the dining room was sub par for such a nice looking place and the prices.

Perfect stay for late arrival

Luxury hotel with excellent room and excellent breakfast at 1 min walk from airport. Expensive but you save the 40-50 euro taxi cost of going to another hotel downtown. Only disadvantage is that you cannot open windows with the nice weather (sound isolation)

Excellent stay

Our experience at Sofitel was excellent from all aspects, for sure well located in terms of access to the airport. Staff were very courteous. The hamburger sandwiches were a real treat. Mattresses were exceptional! Will stay there again for sure

Great location and super staff.

Craig P. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Since we had a very early departure on the 25th (6am), being located across the street from the airport was incredibly convenient. The staff was great and the hotel is spotless. The only criticism was the weight of the duvet which was very hot but other than that, we loved the hotel. Keep up the great work!!

Wonderful Staff- Great Location

Luxury stay next to the airport

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Wporter Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

I had an early flight back to the US and decided it was best to stay next to the airport. Checkin was easy. They kindly upgraded my room and sent up some Greek treats. The room was large and very beautiful! Modern updates and great layout. I ordered room service, it came up pretty quickly and was really large portions so the prices seemed quite reasonable. Checkout at 4am was extremely quick and easy.
