Had a long connection between flight from Miami to Dubai and had great relaxing time in this hotel. Very clean modern rooms, perfectly sound proofed to feel no proximity to airport. Beautiful SPA facility, free Internet connection in the room, great sound system built into TVs ( connect your iPad or iPhone to hear your favorite tunes out loud!), great food, including room service ( hard to find in other hotels)... The best part is,- easy to get from the airport terminal without going outside,- there is a walkway to get you there without ruining your hair (quite important in the UK weather :-)..

Stayed: March 2012

Stayed here for one night prior to flying out to begin our Caribbean Cruise. What a special place! From the moment we checked-in to the minute we left nothing was too much trouble.The reception area was welcoming and staffed by highly professional staff. Our room was superb comfy bed stylish bathroom with a great shower and toiletries. The choice for breakfast was outstanding we couldn't think of anything which was not on offer to us.
When the time came to check-out this was straight forward, which left us with just a walk along the covered walkway into terminal 5 to wait for our flight. Would love to stay here next time we travel out of Heathrow. This hotel fully deserves its 5 star- rating.

Great hotel, expensive, but worth it if you are flying from T5, park underneath the hotel, so nice and easy, good rooms with comfy beds, great food in the restaurant of which there are 2, loved the gym as I had it all to myself and the equipment was decent, spa looked nice as well.
Not sure why people think its a long walk to the terminal, you get in the lift and its about 5 minutes, all of which is undercover.
Would use again if travelling from T5, worth the money for having the stress taken out of leaving the car and getting transfers

You get what you pay for which is convenience of location (right next to Terminal 5) and exceptional service. This hotel has hundreds of rooms but you would never know it; guests just seem to hit the rooms crash and leave ! Food and drink are both quality as you would expect from a Sofitel but it is the service which is terrific. Front of house are great and very helpful. The spa is stunning so if like me you need a place to stop over and you don't mind paying a little more for the convenience this hotel has to be for you. I have previously stayed in the holiday Inn, Crown Plaza on the Heathrow complex but these hotels are ordinary and the journey by bus to each is a nightmare - especially with luggage. Sofitel is the best Heathrow hotel by miles. I will return again and again. TIP : you are right next door to T5 which has a couple or bars and cafes. It also has a well stocked Marks and Spencers. So if you are watching the pennies or just fancy a change of scene with the kids go to Terminal 5 and get champagne and prawn sandwiches from M&S for less that a Sofitel steak head back to your room and enjoy !

Room Tip: They are all good - select one which suits your pocket

This hotel is a great addition to Heathrow and is now my number one choice of hotel for the airport. I arrived late and departed eatly so I didn't see everything, however, dinner in the resturant was excellent.

My only gripe in the fabulous room was the bed; whilst it is a feature in Sofitel, it was just too soft for me. Just a personal preference.

Recently I happened to stay at sofitel in terminal 5..Simply the hotel is amazing., excellent interiors. Entrance to the hotel through airport's terminal building is really a value added feature. Adding to this the big difference i feel worth mentioning here is the renovated Champagne Bar..what an amazing place to chill out in the airport...really nice..And as usual the F&B part, as from my previous experience its going better and better...especially breakfast team worth mentioning with the manager Yogesh really paying attention to guest satisfaction..Amazing..i will definitely visit this place again..
