From minute you walk into the fragranced walkway from T5 you know this place knows what it's doing. They just get so many of the basics right. Rooms are spotless and beautifully appointed, staff are charming, the shower and toiletries are amazing and the breakfast is truly one of the best I have had anywhere in the world. We were,... More

Made a return visit and again thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The room was very comfortable and quiet leading to a good night's sleep before our flight. We had some drinks in the bar which was pleasant with good service but quite expensive. We did not use the hotel restaurants as we wished to eat before they opened at 6pm so... More

My stay was a very brief one. Checked in late and checked out early in the morning. Room was very well appointed and i got a full night of uninterrupted sleep. Room had a view of an interior corridor. The property was conveniently located adjacent to Terminal 5.

We stayed here on coming back into Heathrow in the evening, wanting a bed for the night. We were very pleasantly surprised as to how good the Sofitel was. Staff were extremely helpful the rooms are well equipped, and the Bistro restaurant was very good (just as well as we had been significantly underfed by BA, but that's another story).... More

Very good location for Terminal 5, otherwise a very ordinary hotel and restaurants. two minute walk into terminal proper and you can leave your car at the hotel whilst you are away, however Purple Parking valet is cheaper.

As my BA flight was canceled I was accomodated together with 233 others in this hotel for an overnight stay. Although it was already past 11pm and there were lot's of other people to check in, the procedure was very very fast. I got my room, wifi instructions etc. The rooms are spacious and the bath is splendid. Everything is... More

Normally, I enjoy eating in the Hotel restaurant, but was disappointed on last trip. Service was very slow at first, and the seasonally inspired menu must have been inspired by a dull wet pile of Autumn leaves. Parsnip soup was not good and needs seasoning or removing! Hotel also put me in wrong room as per keycard and when key... More

We had a short stopover in London - arrived at 3pm, left at 7am - and wanted to minimize early morning travel stress. The hotel was a little hard to find (or maybe we were just tired). The room was nice - comfortable bed and free wifi and all that - I was really pleased to find US power outlets... More
