“Early flight”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

For an airport hotel, it does not get better than this. Even if it were in the centre of a major city it would still warrant 5*. We had dinner at the Vivre restaurant which was excellent.
We left from Terminal 4 which was approx. 5 minutes by shuttle.

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.
