“Convenience, for a price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Easy access from Heathrow T5 (10 minute walk, and you don't need to go outside). Hotel is new and beautiful. Great bedrooms and bathrooms, everything works. Staff is polite and responsive, and seem genuinely friendly.

Hotel is quite expensive for an airport hotel, and it is inexcusable that they charge GBP15 for a high-speed broadband connection. There is a "free" internet option, but it is so slow that it is less than useless. High speed broadband should be free. ARE YOU LISTENING SOFITEL?

Room Tip: If you need to use your mobile phone, consider an "exterior" room. I couldn't get a T...

What a great location for travellers! Professional service throughout and absolutely nothing to complain about, which is pretty good for my standards. For the professional traveller it's great, for meetings, really well organised, but certainly not good for an extended family vacation ;-)

My highlight was the bar, with a nice selection, but first and foremost with rellay nice people working the bar. THANKS Andrei!

Room Tip: Opt for the southern side

An excellent stopover prior to our flight to Miami. The proximity to Terminal 5 could not be better.
We also visited the hotel on our return on 1st. February after arriving at Terminal 5 at 6.00 am we had a wonderful breakfast which at £19.95 was excellent value for money.

Just next to terminal five. 1 minute walk internally. Breakfast is great - everything you want either ready made or cooked to order including Japanese breakfast. Great hotel bar. Staff very accommodating. Bedding is so comfortable it's hard to get up in the morning.

I stay at the Sofitel before I fly out to the Bahamas because the flight is too early for me to comfortably make it there in time. The rooms are expensive, there is no doubt about it, but they are exquisite, ultra comfortable, totally soundproof, and guarantee a good night's sleep. Even the pillows are downy soft, my personal standard for a great hotel room - soft, comfy pillows are de rigueur. Restaurants are excellent and offer a gluten-free option, even down to gluten-free bread with your lentil soup. Excellent service from a superb chain, who could wish for more?

Room Tip: They are all beautiful.

I used this hotel already couple of times for business meetings. Professional service, quiet, discreet rooms offer excellent conditions for face-to-face negotiations.
Convenient, easy access directly from Terminal 5, welcoming entrance and all the time ready to help reception staff.
Business lunches for users of conference centre are tasty however a bit monotonous.
