(4 star hotel)
from the airport
The Captain's choice
The Heathrow Arora was originally an exclusive hotel just for airline pilots and cabin crew, but fortunately for you, the hotel has since opened up to the public. This means you get all the little inside perks the pilots enjoy; from a personal fridge to runway views in many of the rooms. Pilots, of course, need a good nights sleep, so youll find triple-glazed windows blocking out all the airport noise at this Heathrow airport hotel.
Cabin crew exclusives and VIP luxury
Of course, the Arora knows that youre here for play, not work. As such, the hotel is packed with new luxury features like a 24-hour gym, a hair and beauty salon and even a gift shop. The gym is free, use your room key card to get in, and has cardio and resistance machines as well as free weights. The beauty salon offers a variety of treatments, including manicures and spray tans, while the hotels experienced stylist knows just how to give you a great new look for your holiday and can even offer barber services to men. With all this, youre sure to be absolutely ready for your holiday by the time you leave the Arora. There's even a shop with a range of air-steward-style shoes, should they take your fancy!
Cabin crew fly often enough to know where the best place to stay on-airport is and a whole host of convenient features will make sure your stay is both comfortable and packed with exclusive perks.
We recommend the Heathrow Arora for:
Cabin crew exclusives - The hotel was designed for cabin crew, so has lots of little extras you wont get elsewhere.

Free transfers - A free bus runs to terminals 1, 3 and 5 between 4am and midnight.
