Staff here are very attentive and the quality of the room was excellent, it’s worth the upgrade for lounge access and having the Halo PCR test hub there also made for a good pre departure stay! Lovely decor access to Spa. Good upgrade options available upon checking in

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed for a night before our flight from terminal 5 and had great service as always. The thing that makes this hotel is the staff, they are so friendly and always want to help even though the management seem to want to work the hotel understaffed… Room was very comfortable and the evening drinks in the bar was a great experience especially thanks to Kesley who served us. Always with a smile and great recommendations and nice service. Will definitely stay again!

She asked us how we were with such care in her voice that I replied with, "it has been a day." And she immediately responded with love and hospitality that made my heart melt. She offered us water, gave us the directions we needed, and even cheered up my mum who's even more in need of a smile and sunshine idioms. I learned that she speaks so many languages, has worked SO hard to get where she is, and has so much of a kind attitude to life in general. Maria is the kind of person that shines light in the world. I saw her deal with a tough customer and when I asked her if it was a rough one, she replied with, "It was tough but everything has a solution," and smiled. What a role model. The other staff I interacted with were also kind and smiling, understood what I needed, and we're all so presentable and properly masked. I hope to be able to stay longer one day. Thanks so much everyone, especially Maria. ~Maisy Hatchard

Booked by a 3rd party a luxury king room asked for a floor to be able to see planes. We arrived and were told pre allocated room 2nd floor. I enquired as I had asked for a higher floor, young lady asked her colleagues to help he changed us to area 6 & 1st floor said no rooms can see the planes well. I got a view of a flyover & a car park. Hence unsatisfactory review it was luxury should have paid for standard probably got a better room!!!

Dear Ladybarra, Thank you for sharing your comment with TripAdvisor community. I do apologise that you were not given an airport view room as requested however as you had booked a superior room this would not be a room that has an airport view as our superior bedrooms are located on the opposite side of the hotel. We have a limited number of airport facing bedrooms which offer a partial runway view and these are our Luxury rooms and certain corner Prestige Suites. Due to the limited number of bedrooms we have with such views, we are unable to guarantee this to any of our guests as it is dependent on availability. I am sure that our team tried their to find the best available room for you, but I am very sorry that this didn't meat your expectation. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. Kind regards, Ryan Nicholls-General Manager Sofitel London Heathrow

Have been staying here on and off for years. Recently not so much due to covid. However it’s a perfect place if your in terminal 5. 2 minute walk. Staff really go out of there way to help. I was even recognized by Aartee at reception and welcomed like a old friend. AmaZing what a friendly face can make after a 14 hour flight! Thanks again
