I stayed here for one night last week with my family. We had a morning flight out of Terminal 3, and figured this would be a nice way to end a holiday in England. While you will pay more staying here than in other area hotels, it is worth it. The hotel is new, and everything was clean. The service... More

Arrived at 1am for a layover and stayed until 7 am. Probably what this hotel is used for most, the layover. Check in was easy and very efficient. Friendly, and got to room in less than 2 minutes. Rooms was terrific. Clean, new, and ready for a good few hours sleep. Bed was comfortable, good sheets, and good pillows. Shower... More

We really liked this beautiful hotel. It's new, very clean and comfortable with excellent service. There is an easy access to terminal 5 through a short walkway.There is also a bus sop right in front of the hotel, which makes it very convenient to get to other terminals (cost about four or five pounds per person, 10 minutes ride).

I stayed here just after it first opened and it has not lost any lustre. To make a morning flight I have had to leave at 4AM from my family home, now I say goodbye the evening before and head to this Sofitel. I drop the rental car and shuttle right to the hotel. The hotel is huge with many... More

OK, it's expensive but everything about this place is great. Service is spot on, rooms are great, perfect location for BA flights, bar staff are excellent as well. The beds are probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in. I stay here a lot, there's nothing compares at Heathrow.

Stayed for 1 night prior to flying out early the following morning. There was a bit of a wait to check in when I arrived, not good for a 5* hotel. Very modern looking hotel with a short walk to T5. Room was very nice and quiet just a little overpriced. Check out was instant!
