There is no mistaking that this is an airport hotel, but it fulfils this function superbly. Each time I have stayed here, the service has been excellent, the beds comfortable, and the hotel has been very quiet. Yes, the prices for the bar are little steep, and the breakfast is extortionate, but this is to be expected in business oriented... More

Staying overnight ay The Sofitel, we ate at Vivre (the other restaurant in the hotel was dark and gloomy, with no staff in evidence). The woman in charge of the Dining Room firmly told us that we couldn't get in until 7.30. So it was off to the bar for a drink. We later noticed that there was plenty of... More

I was very happy upon arrival especially after staying at the Heathrow Hilton this time last year which was well below par. The room was very comfortable and had some nice extras such as a flat screen over the tub, L'Occitane products, and a waterfall shower. The internet connection is free but kind of slow, but that's ok considering the... More

Stayed for 2 nights on business. I'm told this hotel was recently renovated so everything still looks new and shiny. The hotel is very well designed with everything thought of: lovely restaurants, bar, spa and conference rooms, and clean, quiet, comfortable bedrooms (huge beds!). Mine overlooked the 'zen garden', which was nice until the fire alarm went off at 2am... More

Having stayed at this hotel before, we chose it again due to its close proximity to Terminal 5 (adjacent!), its luxury and the modern fixtures and fittings. We had a loyalty card and also paid £35 for an upgrade, which was so worth it as we got a better room and also access to the VIP lounge. We got the... More

Great place to stay just before an early morning flight. The rooms are so well sound proofed, I had a junior suite overlooking the road, but didn't hear any traffic it was amazing. The only thing is, breakfast is not until 6am, and if you have an early morning flight that is too late. The decor is beautiful for an... More

Hotel is right on T5 doorstep, link walkway from hotel to T5. Staff welcoming and helpful, rooms luxurious and very comfortable, once inside your room you would not know that you were right next to the airport, did not hear a single aircraft sound during our stay, have stayed previously at Radisson Edwarian + others, this is by far the...
