“great place to stay before a flight”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Stayed here before flying from terminal 5. How convenient. An easy walk to and from the terminal. We normally use valet parking but this is much easier at Heathrow.
Pleasant efficient check in. Very clean and beautifully decorated room with comfortable bed. Also very quiet.
We had a nice meal in the bar which was like tapas the night before our flight. The staff there were also very pleasant and attentive.
Only one critisism.....thought a hotel of this calibre should have free wi fi.

When ever my partner and I travel from any terminal at heathrow we always stay here it's a lovely hotel with professional staff, the rooms are clean. The restaurant next to the spa is lovely food, it's always a pleasure to stay here.

This is the nicest Airport hotel I have stayed in. However I really only use Airport hotels for one night stopovers and they are other decentish hotels locally that are much cheaper - on the other hand it is a lovely hotel, service is excellent and is very handy for all terminals.

I stay at the Sofitel when I fly out of T5 at Heathrow because the staff are very professional, the rooms are lovely with really great bathrooms and it is so convenient for the terminal. I like to walk across to the terminal and buy a 'picnic' meal from M&S and a Costa coffee to have in my room or eat at Carluccios in the departure hall which is also good value and fun. If you leave early in the morning there are lots of really good places for breakfast airsde too.
Note to self: remeber to ask for a room with a window that doesn't overlook the internal courtyard! Even on a short overnight stay a little daylight doesn't go amiss!

Extremely conveinient for Terminal 5 - a 5/10 minute walk away (although maybe a little longer than you might imagine) - this is a very well appointed friendly hotel. Rooms are extremely comfortable and I nice surprise is that there is a reasonably good value (for an airport hotel) restuarant/cafe for relaxed but high quality dining. Admiitedly the hotel was full of Ukranian/Russian fashion models when I arrived which may have slightly coloured my judgement, but I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it. Obviously much depends on the rate you can get which can vary from £150 - £300. If you can get a low price, go for it.

I recently had to overnight in London between flights and chose to stay at the Sofitel Hotel. The hotel is beautiful as well as convenient. It is a 5 to 10 minute walk from Terminal 5, no need to catch a taxi or shuttle. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and effiicent. The hotel was very busy but the check in process was quick and the room was very quiet. The room was beautifully clean and comfortable. The only downside was the internet was not free and there was no minibar. All in all a great hotel if you are connecting through Heathrow or have an early flight out.
