Sofitel Heathrow - a delight!

Pros: The room was lovely and so comfortable. The dining was impeccable from the sumptuous breakfast buffet with full English breakfast to the Internationa
Cons: Not a thing.
Location: It is a bit of an Underground ride into London but I made that part of my trip - a lovely, peace-filled overground ride through the London suburbs.
I love staying at the Sofitel Heathrow - it is like a vacation in itself at this beautiful hotel with its feng shui touches and sparkly blue holiday lights throughout.

excellent location, most convenient Heathrow spot

Pros: great place, friendly staff, good food and beer and great rooms
Cons: check on the irresponsibility of guests BEFORE they cause problems for others
Location: didnt have time... but London is among the world's most interesting cities... and only a few minutes away
got there with only a few hours to sleep before leaving, put into a room which reeeked of cigarette smoke. The management were quick to respond, very kindly gave me room service on the house and offered to change my room, but I didnt have the time to relocate having literally minutes to do work, sleep and get on another plane.to western Asia.,They need to enforce anti-smoking policies much more efficiently...

Pros and Cons

Pros: Nice clean modern room, really helpful and nice staff.
Cons: Mount a shower head in the shower, hand held showers suck.
Location: I just stayed overnight to catch a connection.
I thought it was convenient the night I arrived since I just walked to the hotel from customs. But between the airport walk and hotel (hallways) walk, it was ALOT of walking. I wonder if staying nearby and just using an airport shuttle might have been easier the next morning when I was leaving. The staff was REALLY nice, room service was GREAT. The bed was comfy. The only complaint I really have is that the shower was just one of those hand held showers so you are not able to stand under nice stead hot water after traveling. In my month of Italy, this was the only place I stayed without a shower head mounted over head high, so I was disappointed. I wonder if all of the rooms are like this or maybe just some - I'd ask first before booking again. ALSO I'd never over-night like this in LHR again. Customs and Security was a mess. I'd rather just fly through if anything, unless I'm really spending some time in London. Not a great place for a connection. The airport is crazy.

Great place to launch off from LHR

Pros: Friendly staff, great front desk, and easy access to Terminal 5.
Cons: Not much to improve on.
Location: Great access to Terminal 5, didn't have time to venture outside to the nearby towns.
Great hotel, clean, friendly and easy to get to Terminal 5. Everyone treated us like we were their favorite guests as if it was our home. Food was excellent, with a very extensive breakfast offering, something for everyone. One of the best stays we had recently.

Great access to Terminal 5

If you are flying in or out of Terminal 5 at Heathrow, this is a very convenient place to stay. It is about a 7 minute walk to get into the hotel from the terminal. The signs are fairly clear, but you do need to look for them in the terminal. The hotel was quite nice. Breakfast was included and was buffet style with a fairly wide choice of eggs, meats, breads, cereal, juices, fruit and Asian specialities.

I mean cmon, it's the Sofitel

Excellent choice for those staying at heathrow. Checkin was smooth and easy. It was a bit of a trek from terminal 3 but there was adequate signage to assist along the way. The hotel was lovely and so was the staff. Arrived just in time for the breakfast buffet. 19p each for the full buffet. It was a great selection of continental and full English with custom omelettes. I would recommend and would definitely stay again.
