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
 

A walking tour of Lavrio, Greece

Lavrio is the coastal town in the southeastern part of Attica which is the region where Athens is located. This is a great place to visit if you want to go to restaurants and shop around, but also be by the water. Personally, I get pretty tired of staying in downtown Athens because there's not much of a breeze and I can't get to the beach very quickly. This is only super easy if you're renting a car, otherwise you can get to the beach or visit closer beach areas like Glyfada.

Where can I watch live bouzouki music in Athens?

What are some great spots to listen to traditional Greek music in downtown Athens? I love bouzouki especially, and would love to see some talented musicians performing it live. Have any of you been to any rebetathika or restaurants with live music that would have some performances to listen to? Thanks everyone!

Youve never seen Athens like this before

Athens is the most stunning city in the world. Never has there been a city that blends Ancient ruins and modern architecture so beautifully. This drone only captures parts of how beautiful this city is. If you're visiting Athens, I recommend that you take your time and explore all parts of the city, both ancient ruins and modern nightlife. Some of the must see places are the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum of course, and having a coffee at the museum cafe where you will have an excellent view of the acropolis.

The best neighborhood to stay in Athens is Thiseio

The Thiseio neighbourhood is perfect for your stay in Athens because you are able to have access to some of the best sites. It is walking distance to the Acropolis, and Monastiraki as well as many different art galleries, shops, restaurants and cafés. When I stay in this neighborhood, I really don't find myself needing to stray and I can find everything I need in walking distance.
