Visited Greece with friends this july. My first ever trip to Europe. I was warned that you had to lug your own luggage and fend for your own self because you know its Europe. Sofitel Athens Airport as the name suggests is just across the airport. You can walk out of departure and straight into the lobby by just crossing over. This made sense to us since we had a flight to catch early next morning to Santorini. From India to Athens with a lay over in Doha was a long flight and not all of it was comfortable. We just needed a bed to crash into and a warm shower. The staff at the hotel have a stiff upper lip. Not many smiles going round here. The check in was pretty smooth. Rooms are outdated and windows can't be opened. The air-condition makes a lot of noise. The beds are comfortable.The bathrooms are tiny. Its a no frills hotel and stand out just for its convenience. And oh yes you can take the walk bridge across the hotel and it leads you straight to the metro station. So if you want to quickly run around plaka or something its workable. Can't comment on the breakfast because we left at 5.30 AM next morning. Most would give at a good rating but I reserve mine to average simply because its not a friendly hotel!
