We did a park and fly deal - which meant we could park our car at the hotel for the duration of our overseas trip. It meant very little hassle for catching a plane at T5. And when we got back the car was waiting in the short stay car park for us. This really made the star of our holiday stress free.

Whilst we arrived late and so did not see much of the hotel, it is definitely a very functional hotel and business like.

It is not easy to find your room - as all the corridors etc look the same. I thought the standard of toiletries in the bathroom were very poor for such a star rating.

Early flight from Heathrow so arrived at around 2200hrs. Check-in was great, only a 5 min walk from arrivals which is what makes this place great. Upgraded on arrival as it was quiet(ish) and rooms very good. Showers have plenty of pressure which is the best thing!
Room service a bit slack at 1 hour with limited grub (I only asked for a sandwich), internet expensive at £15 for 24hrs, but the rooms make up for it, very classy with a good shower and only 5 mins from check-in.

I stayed for 4 nights in Sofitel Heathrow. I had a very price £68-70 a night from lastminute.com with breakfast for 2.

I reached the hotel at 12 midnight from Paris. There was a queue at check in. Waited for 30 minutes.

The room was spacious. Bathroom with separate tub and shower with Hermes amenties. Their bed was very very comfortable.

Waited about 90 minutes for food room services, we waited till we doozed. But the food was delicious, at least not overnight. It was cooked upon order.

The breakfast spread was bare minimum. However, was tired of the same menu for 4 days straight.

I guess it is impossible to stay in a 5* hotel like this at this price in Central London.

stayed there for two nights and the location to Heathrow is great to catch early flights and maximise slip on business trips. Hade a big hick-up with the staff which behavior was not appropriate and made mistake, wrote to the manager who fix quickly and efficiently the issue. Good recognition for A-Club elite status. The hotel has a potential to become a very nice place once the staffed has been trained. I'll certainly return

Stayed one night aftwer flying in from a weekend away prior to flying out on business on the Monday morning from T5. Hotel perfectly located, you can walk from arrivals. It's new and very modern but incredibly sterile, I think Accor have missed an opportunity to make it a cosy have. Rooms are fine but nothing special... top marks for the bed though - very comfy!
