Wonderful hotel for the weary traveller! Great idea to have a hotel like this at a location like Heathrowsuch a pity we only needed to stay one night. Received an upgrade to a King size room without needing to ask. Huge heavenly beds and luxuriously large bathroom and lovely L'Occitane toiletry products. Plenty of thick fluffy towels and great room... More

I flew into Heathrow late night from Athens May 23. Was exhausted after a 10 day hiking trip and I guess sort of sad that the adventure had come to an end. I had made the one night reservation for the Sofitel Hotel, at least I thought. (Be careful when making the online reservation). After a bit of a hike... More

We stayed here the night of July 1 at the conclusion of 3 weeks touring Europe. I chose the hotel because it was in Terminal 5 and therefore very convenient for us, and we were traveling with our (almost) 2 year old girl. Upon check in, I requested a rollaway bed for my little girl. We had made similar requests... More

I agree with one or two other reviews that the approach by car isn't intuitive as you near Heathrow T5 and you have to be prepared to change lanes quickly as signs suddenly appear. Using Google Earth and Street View didn't give me the help I needed. Parking was easy and a convenient lift took us to reception. At times... More

Booked a room and 8 day parking deal prior to early flight the next day. Really easy parking arrangements and easy walk to Terminal 5 so this deals with all parking hassles. Moreover you get your exit ticket validated at check in so can literally get off plane and go straight to car park and away on your return. Hotel... More

Great hotel located at Terminal 5. We chose a Junior Suite (large room with King-size bed with Club Millésime Lounge access). Excellent size room, absolutely wonderful bed, complimentary water and soft drinks in mini bar and complimentary buffet breakfast. After late check-out at 1pm we were able to use the lounge before heading to our terminal for our evening flight.... More

This is a nice, new hotel in Terminal 5 of Heathrow Airport. The staff are pleasant and professional. The rooms are well-appointed but on the smallish side, which is typical for an airport hotel. The main complaint is that, like many European hotels, management apparently turns off the heat at some point during the spring. When I visited in mid-June,... More
