Sofitel Athens Airport: Meetings with class in front of the Athens airport
The 5-star Sofitel Athens Airport is your hotel if you are looking for a meeting room that suits your needs and, at the same time, not to waste time travelling to the airport, because it is located literally in front of the Athens International Airport, the only hotel within 10km. It offers you eleven meeting rooms with natural light and audiovisual equipment, the smaller ones for one2one meetings and the largest meeting room for 600 pax without any pillars, where you could even place a car. Moreover, is 10 minutes from the Metropolitan Expo (the largest fairground in Greece), 35 minutes from city center and 15 minutes from the beach. With this strategic location (and its 345 rooms newly renovated), it’s not surprising that it is a benchmark hotel for the most international events and top-level seminars. So much so that your guests will have a hard time leaving the hotel or its indoor pool to catch their plane… Although they certainly won’t miss it!
The closest to the airport and 10 minutes from the Metropolitan Expo
If you’re worried about losing time getting your attendees to the airport, relax: Sofitel Athens Airport is literally right in front of and the Sofitel team will help you with all your needs regarding the airport or flights. It’s your hotel to organise that international event or seminar with attendees and speakers from various countries or that meeting in extremis before having to fly to the next destination. Fast and comfortable travel are guaranteed, even when visiting the wonderful city centre of the mythical Greek capital. Syntagma Square (with the Parliament of Greece) or the Acropolis can be reached within half an hour by metro and bus.
In addition, as it is 10 minutes from the Metropolitan Expo, the largest exhibition centre in Greece, you can hold your most private meetings here or put-up attendees in its 12 suites and 345 rooms newly renovated. The accommodation is five-star and it shows. Despite being a stone’s throw from the airport, the rooms are soundproofed, have black out blinds and are a haven of peace and quiet (the thing you need most before or after catching a plane) with exclusively manufactured beds, linen and silk sheets, and elegant decor.
Eleven rooms and the largest meeting for 600 pax without any pillars
Its elegant aesthetic is evident in the lobby entrance with “The Globe”, a hanging sculpture by award-winning Greek artist Costas Varotsos, which captivates all our guests. On this same floor, it houses six rooms (96m²2, 80m², 70m², 47m², 40m² and 20m²) with natural light, audiovisual equipment and different capacities depending on the set-up. The largest room of 96m² is known as the boardroom and is reserved especially for your most important and private meetings (executive committee meetings, etc.). If you take advantage of the fact that it is connected by a lounge with the 70m² room, you can hold the coffee break in this other room.
And there is much more one floor below, specifically 600m² at your disposal for events of up to 600 attendees, combining two rooms of 320m² and 280m² without any pillars and with natural light, each with its own screen and projector in case you prefer to use them independently. Don’t worry about the coffee break either, the adjoining foyer is designed for that purpose. And at a time when “small is beautiful” and many events now include breakouts, you have 3 more rooms of 20m² next door.
Spa, indoor pool, fitness centre and exquisite Greek dishes
In a hotel like this, the gastronomic proposal is up to par. Exquisite Greek dishes are available at its Mesoghaia restaurant – recently renovated with touches of rose gold, Oxford blue and white marble – where you can host banquets for your event. For meals, coffees, cocktails or even small more informal meetings, the Artemis bar has a large lounge area with sofas and low tables by the windows. The tranquility of this space allows your guests to enjoy their quiet and reflective moments to work (or telework), a must when they find it hard to switch off.
Organising your event at this hotel also means treating yourself to care and pleasure, thanks to its fitness centre and the wide range of relaxing and aesthetic treatments offered in its spa area. The indoor pool adjoining this area has views that make you dream of soaring to reach new goals. You can also relax in the salt waters of the beautiful nearby beaches which you should definitely add to the event programme. A visit to the Acropolis is another must, although you will surprise the attendees even more if you take them to the beach or the Temple of Poseidon, one of those unknown enclaves that has remained intact through the ages, just 30 minutes by car from the hotel. Surprise, luxury and comfort in equal parts at the Sofitel Athens where you will enter Greece through the front door with your event.
