Which hotel is better to get to Terminal 5?

Hi. We need to spend a night in London before getting our flight to Manchester the next morning. We have chosen 2 hotels that fit our budget...Ibis London Heathrow Airport Hotel and Holiday Inn Express London Heathrow T5 Hotel Since the flight will leave for Manchester at 0855 at Terminal 5 on a Friday, we would like to know which hotel is better in terms of travelling time if we take the Hoppa Bus to T5. Thank you. :)

Neither hotel is handy for LHR T5. The HI Express is in Slough; the Ibis in Bath Road is nearer but not exceptionally near the terminal.

If you do book the Ibis and are travelling as a party of two or more, a taxi may be cheaper than two Hoppa fares, and will very likely be faster.

Have a look at the Premier Inn Terminal 5 at 420 Bath Road. The 423 bus from the hotel to the terminal building is free of charge and takes about 10 minutes for the trip. Alternately, check the rate at the Travelodge T5, as it is nearer the terminal building than the Ibis, but you will still need to pay for a taxi or the Hoppa from the hotel to the airport.

Ava,

The OP is indeed looking at the HIE. The problem with the hotel is that it is (despite the name) some distance from T5.

The PI that is mentioned above is now not available to the general public which means the OP will have to take a Hoppa bus or a taxi unless they splurge on the Sofitel located within T5.

Ultimately I would go with the one that offers the best deal.
