For a one night layover, I would highly recommend the Athens airport Hilton. It is not your typical Greek boutique hotel that you might find in other areas of Athens, but for a 1 night layover it should do the trick. It is right across the street from the Athens metro/subway which is modern and clean and a great way to get to the popular areas of Athens.

Definitely the Sofitel - located right across the street. Very comfortable rooms; great pool & gym, excellent restaurant/bar. The next morning you just roll your luggage via the short walkway to the airport.

I would definitely recommend the Sofitel - you walk out of the terminal and it is across the road. We used it in March when transiting through to Kefalonia. It's not the cheapest but saves a lot of messing around and their Moussaka is damn good!!

The location of this hotel is ultra convenient and it is so comfortable! You have the ability to take a taxi, etc to see the sites, and then you are right by the airport so that you can get there quickly to catch your next flight.

I always stay at Sofitel the night before I fly out of Greece because it is there, very convenient, you just walk across. I meet my rental car rep there in the evening or the next morning. I have a long flight home to Sydney and I don't want to miss my flight.
It is not cheap but clean and comfortable with double glazing you can't hear the planes . On arrival to Athens from Sydney usually a bit after 12 noon, I pick up my car at the airport and drive to Loutraki stay a couple days at the Club hotel and then go on to Kyllini.

I've never stayed at Sofitel but many of my friends have. It is truly the most convenient and will probably be worth the money if you're exhausted from traveling. Really depends on what you want to prioritize

You should visit the Port town of Lavrio near Athens

Lavrio is one of the best beachside places to visit near Athens. It's a bit of a drive so you'll need to rent a car or take a bus. There are excellent beaches and tavernas there and you can also visit the neighbouring town of Sounio where the famous Grecotel hotel is located. Since it is a tourist location, Lavrio has a bunch of water sport activities such as snorkelling, scuba diving, boat rentals and many more. it's a great two day trip if you're wanting to get away from the city life.

Why arent the old Olympic stadiums being used for anything?

This is something that I’ve wondered for a very long time but I’ve never heard an answer. How come the old Olympic stadiums in Greece aren’t being repurposed for something useful. This is a phenomen that has also happened in other countries where the Olympic Games have been held. Why did this happen in Greece though?

What time of the year is the best to visit Athens?

According to the forum, many people recommend that I don’t visit Athens during August, because many of the locals have gone on vacation and the city is pretty empty. That being said… when is the best time to visit? I am definitely interested in seeing the acropolis and the museums, but I am wondering when the best time of year is to see the city life.
