“Very Convenient!”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Although a little on the pricey side I booked this hotel more for the convenience/location as we had a very early flight from T5 the next morning and am very glad I spent the extra.
Arriving into T5 via London Underground, it was well signposted and easy to find, the walk from the terminal was 5 minutes. As you enter the hotel to the reception area, I was very surprised at how calm and relaxed it seemed when 100 yards away it was madly busy.
Getting into the room, it was a little on the small side but was perfectly formed for a 1 night stay. The decor was nice and calming, the bathroom was lovely and omg! the bed was amazing, its just a shame my alarm went off at 4am! The room was also very quiet, there was no disturbance from any aircraft or even from neighbouring rooms.
I would definately stay here again for my next trip through Heathrow Airport if I had the pennies to do so.

Was traveling to LA and had a 9am check in, researched a number of hotels but this one came up fairly reasonable incl parking. So convenient, bed was the most comfortable I had ever slept in. Would definitely recommend and use again.

I used the Sofitel for an overnight stay due to an early flight the following morning. I found the staff to be most polite and helpful. The hotel has a utilitarian yet expensive vibe - the room was very comfortable indeed and surpassed my expectations for my overnight stay. I went to check out at 4am for a 6.15am flight, only to be told by the desk clerk that Heathrow don't open their check-in desks till 5am and that I would be more comfortable waiting in my room rather than in Terminal 5 - which I duly did, and was grateful for.

Room Tip: My room was on Level 2 / Wing 2 and was lovely and quiet

We found the Sofitel Heathrow an oasis after a long tour of Europe. And so convenient for those landing at Terminal 5. Staff were most helpful and friendly and the room was exceptionally clean and quite spacious. They looked after our luggage while we visited Windsor to fill in time before our late flight to Australia.

very, very impressive hotel in possibly the most unlikely of locations! Overlooking one end of the runway at T5, this hotel is an oasis of calm, subtle class and restrained opulence. Great decor, fabulous staff, and a layout and easy efficiency that puts everything else in its class to shame.

not that you are getting it at a bargain, as if you pay anywhere near full price you're unlikely to get a room for much less than the flight you might be going on. The most basic of lunch meals is expensive, and few beers is best part of 20 pounds. You are not going to have a cheap time of it here unless your deal is somehow inclusive of what you need.

that said, it is staggeringly good and leaves you ready to tackle the next part of your trip with a class that is rare in even good quality hotel brands.

Room Tip: Wings 5 and 6 are quieter and further from the bar.
