My wife and I returned to stay at the Sofitel Heathrow prior to our departure for an Autumn vacation in USA, and once again we were totally impressed. The service is excellent, the rooms are incredibly comfortable, and honestly we cannot fault Sofitel Heathrow. If anything, remem

Lovely hotel and staff. Room very comfy and clean. Convenient Location for Terminal 5 as you just walk there. Stayed here a few times when flying from Heathrow. It will always be our hotel of choice as our stay has never been disappointing.

The Sofitel Heathrow is my go to hotel when I’m transiting Heathrow. But make no mistake, the hotel is not your usual airport hotel, it’s a 5 star hotel that just happens to be next to an airport.

Everything about this hotel is top notch. The rooms are well appointed, the beds

Hello. How will I get from terminal 3 to your hotel ?
Thank you for your interest in our property. In regards to your query, we would like to inform you that our hotel is directly connected to Heathrow Terminal 5 by a covered link bridge. You may choose to take the Heathrow Express train from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 – free inter terminal train service, running every 15 minutes, then walk over from Terminal 5 to our hotel via the link bridge. On arrival at Terminal 5, take the elevators to the arrivals level and follow signage to our hotel. Our hotel lift is located on the forecourt outside Giraffe. Kind regards, Sofitel London Heathrow

Does the Sofitel add £100 property charge to your bill? When booking on Expedia it says they do but I cannot see this information on the hotel website. I did reach out to the hotel but said speak to Expedia! I did that but didn’t get a clear answer! A response here would be appreciated
I have never heard of a property charge. They took card details in case we had any extras, but only our bar bill was added to the room.

My wife and I arrive Terminal # on BA 875 at 19:00 from Budapest on October 14, 2018. We have a reservation at the Sofitel for that night. We would like assistance getting from baggage claim at Terminal 3 to the hotel as we will have four bags of luggage. We leave the next morning from Terminal 5. Please advise. Darlene Heath Arthur Schneiderman
Dear Art-Darlene Thank you for your question. We work with a transportation company called Millenium Executive Cars who provide a Meet & Greet service, however this will be from the arrivals hall only as only airport staff are allowed in the baggage reclaim area. You may book a Heathrow Luggage porter who can assist you in the baggage hall to the arrivals hall at a surcharge, but they will not bring you to the hotel. For further info please contact us at H6214-GR1 @ sofitel. com (no spaces) Kind regards Guest Relations

"Ask for an upper floor away from the escalator"
"They said they upgraded but it was the room I booked."
"We booked a Prestige Suite - a bedroom and separate living room - ample space for two (really there's enough for three or four!)"
"The lower floor rooms can be seen into from inside the hotel."
"Sockets near the bed would have been awesome. "
US$153 - US$343 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
