I had to overnight in Heathrow in order to catch an early morning flight to North America and the convenience of the Sofitel, located in Terminal 5 seemed to make the most sense. The room was lovely and well appointed even though I was only in it to sleep for a few hours. I ate dinner in the restaurant adjacent to the lobby and the quality of my meal was good and the taste excellent. Getting to Terminal 3 the next morning via the free Heathrow Express was a breeze. My only complaint was the fact that the stay cost nearly 300 pounds for one night and a modest dinner of a beer and pizza.

I have travelled through Terminal 5 and stayed at the Sofitel many times. I think a previous reviewer got it right by saying its great if you are coming into and going out of Terminal 5 as we normally do. On this occasion I timed my entry into the hotel from the minute I took my luggage out of the overhead on my internal flight, to going through the terminal, checking in, dropping off luggage in the room and sipping on my first drink in the bar. Exactly 20 minutes! So for all those people who think the long corridor is too long lets get a reality check. On exit it took me 19 minutes to leave my room, check our and get through security at Terminal 5. That's good enough for me. We ate in the Verve restaurant and the food was great. Would recommend. I will always use the Sofitel when having an early flight out of Heathrow.

Stayed: July 2013

I think the Sofitel Hotel at Terminal 5, Heathrow Airport, is solely responsible for my lack of jet lag on my recent trip to London on the way to Geneva. The hotel was easy to get to using the Heathrow Express train service. We had taken a long flight from L.A. and were spending the night at the airport before flying out to Geneva the next day. We were informed upon our arrival that we had an upgrade in our room reservation which was a welcome surprise. The hotel lobby area is airy and bright and our room was roomy, comfortable, spotless and quiet. We were able to unpack a bit, head down to the bar for a glass of wine and then ease on back to our room for a light dinner before getting a good night's sleep on a cloud-like bed with crisp white sheets.

The fitness center is outstanding: lots of up-to-date equipment and good space for a workout.

The two hotel bars are relaxing and have great service. Our bartender even provided us with some free samples of wines they were promoting. The food from the restaurant is wonderful and the prices very reasonable. All of the staff are helpful and informed and seem dedicated to making your stay comfortable and pleasant.

If you have to fly to Europe and want a relaxing stop-over, make it London Heathrow, and make it the Sofitel Hotel, Terminal 5.

There's really nothing to say about this hotel that has not been said earlier. Great for Terminal 5 - and even quite convenient for the other terminals. It saves the 1/2 hour bus drive from other airport hotels

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review.

I was pleased to read that enjoyed your stay with us and as you mentioned in your review our location to Terminal 5 is very convenient and accessible via a covered walkway from our reception area into the Terminal building in under 10 minutes. Travel from Terminal 1-3 would be via the free Heathrow Express into Terminal 5 and travel from Terminal 4 would be on the Hotel Hoppa direct service from the Terminal building to our hotel and costs £8 return. I hope you found this additional information helpful.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Sofitel London Heathrow again very soon.
