Good staff, excellent location for T5 and the car parking is excellent as part of a package with the room. Room size and facilities are very good. Very modern, new and clean hotel, thoroughly recommend it, although not the cheapest, but it is worth the money.

Stayed for 4 nights in a quiet oasis of a modern, airy, light and spacious hotel a short convenient walk from Heathrow Terminal 5. Large room (esp by London standards) overlooking an internal atrium on level 3, section 3, very very quiet even though near a runway- you do forget you are staying at one of the busiest airports in...

We appreciated the 12.00 checkout, a short walk directly coonected to th terminal. The 8 day parking package was excellent and made the... More

I stay here frequently on my connections through Heathrow. Rooms never disappoint. Decent size, always clean, good sound proofing for an airport hotel. So convenient for T5 departures and if you need a snack or something, the M&S store in T5 is very close. Dependant on timing, check in can be very busy and a little slow. Ideal for airport... More

I loved rooms in this hotel. Modern and lovely. HOWEVER, hotel often fully booked due to its location at the airport which means HARD to book a room or a suit in certain periods. It happened to me many time ending up in another hotels because this one was FULLY booked. I am a frequent traveler so I always chose... More

We stayed here for one night after a late flight into Terminal 5. I wish we could have stayed longer! The staff was friendly efficient and helpful. The room was huge by London standards and the bath beautiful and modern with a separate shower as well as a tub. It was quiet and clean and the bed and bedding most... More

as we had an early start following morning, thought it better to stay overnight. This was such a treat, had an executive room which was extremely comfortable. Fabulous nights sleep, good sound proofing, comfortable beds with good climate control. Excellent bathrooms with quality soaps and bath products, my daughter adored the built in tv in the bath wall.

Excellent hotel ideally placed if flying from terminal 5. Staff very professional, polite & friendly. Comfortable beds and lovely bathroom. I could have stayed for a week! This hotel may seem expensive but I certainly think it is worth every penny.

we had a layover in London and decided to stay at the airport. The Sofitel was pricey, but very pleasant. Great personal service, access to lounge, comfortable and well equipped room. Directly at Terminal 5.

Only stayed here for one night before flying out of T5 and didn't eat anything at the hotel as we were meeting family in central London but we really liked the hotel. It definately has a luxury feel about it and although we were only in a standard room it was spacious. Very handy for the airport and worth paying... More
