I had an excellent stay at the Sofitel Terminal 5, very comfortable and quiet room given the location and it couldn't be nearer to the airport. The car park features generous sized spaces and the overall bill for room and a week's parking was very good for such a class of hotel.

Booked on line due to Trip Advisor ratings and were not disappointed. Nice way to end our trip. Very clean, comfortable, quiet hotel with gorgeous bathroom. We left out of another terminal which was still very convenient. Just a quick bus ride to get to other terminal. Staff was extremely helpful ensuring that we found correct bus. Wish all airport...

We had a chance to stay twice at this fabulous hotel during last month. First time, we had a reserved room, second time (because of our mistake, when we missed our flight) we came without reservation. Very proffesional and polite staff immediately took care of us. We got even the same room with same conditions, as we would book the... More

The rooms are nicely furnished but very small, even for two people. The hotel is a very long walk from Terminal Five, and luggage carts can be used only part of the way. Transport to other terminals is even more challenging. The hotel has no shuttle. Internet is very expensive and not included. Ditto breakfast. This is a huge hotel,... More

Stayed here overnight between flights. From the outset we were greeted by friendly, welcoming and efficient reception staff. We were offered a complimentary upgrade which was very welcome. Our room was modern and extremely comfortable with a luxurious bathroom.Having dropped our bags we went to the concierge for assistance with on line check in for the next day's flight. We... More

We stayed here because of it's proximity to the airport. On both occasions, after very long and tiring journeys,check-in was quickly, efficiently completed with apparent concern for our welfare. The rooms are well appointed with nice toiletries, the usual facilities and the most comfortable of beds. The room is silent and totally dark with the curtains drawn. Everywhere is immaculately...

They say this is a 5* hotel but it isn't. It is a very good 3/4* The only reason you would stay here of course is if you are using the airport.

The hotel is across from Terminal 5, so it is easy to get to. The room is quite big, and the bed and pillows are comfortable. We arrived at 930pm ,checked into two rooms with my children. They gave us two adjoining rooms. We decided to have a light meal before we go to bed so headed to the coffee... More

We only stayed in this room for one night before flying to Barcelona. The room was great. Very comfortable. As well as the bed there was a tv, tea making facilities, ironing board and iron and a well stocked bathroom. There was air conditioning too. We were up too early to have the breakfast so I can't comment on that.... More
