It did not disappoint. Our colleague had to catch a train also out of Terminal 5, so it worked out to be very convenient for both... More

This is a nice, clean modern hotel which is handy for stopovers out of T5. However to ask overnight international travelers to pay 10 pound an hour for early check in is price gouging at its worst.

The Sofitel standards are always very high. A little more... More

This Sofitel Hotel offers very nice modern rooms with state-of-the-art appliances. Restaurant and food are excellent, however, the bar service is a bit slow.
