(2 star hotel)
from the airport
Easy come, easy go
If youre planning to stay at the Heathrow easyhotel the night before you leave for your holiday, you can save time and money by booking your parking at the same time as you book your room.
The easyHotel Heathrow offers a secure on-site car park for all guests of the hotel. Simply arrive, park in a space and check in as normal. You will need to fill out a short form at reception and then leave this on your dashboard for the duration of your time away; but theres no need to leave the key you can keep your it with you when you jet off, safe in the knowledge that nobody else has access to your car.
To reach the airport for your flight, the hotel offers two methods of transportation, both bookable at reception. The Heathrow Hoppa bus costs £4.50 per person each way and will pick you up from the hotels front door and drop you at either terminal 1 or terminal 3, a 15 to 20 minute drive away.
Alternatively, the easyHotel has a deal with a local minicab firm who will pick you up at any time and take you to any of the airports five terminals. Journey time to terminals 1 and 3 is 10 minutes, while terminals 4 and 5 is a 15 minutes.
This ultra-modern, minimalist hotel completely redefines the airport hotel - what else would you expect from easyJet?
Check in anytime from 15:00. Enjoy a well-equipped micro-gym for travellers to make use of, as well as a neighbouring public park to keep the kids entertained. You can also enjoy the hotel’s wifi access, free to you for the first half hour.
Aside from the vending machines in the lobby, there’s no restaurant or bar, which gives you an excuse to venture out into the rural area around the hotel. Harlington High Street is only a two-minute walk away, where you can dine at the White Heart for a menu of traditional pub grub, or the Harlington Tandoori restaurant for a spot of tasty Indian cuisine. Another option would be the Flying Egg for a selection of fresh sandwiches and light bites.
If you don’t fancy a walk to the high street, why not order a delivery from one of the takeaway menus on offer at the hotel’s reception, and dine in the comfort of your own room? The hotel also has a communal kitchen where you can heat food, or make your own hot drink.
Much like the rest of the easyHotel, your room is comfortable and very modern. The no-frills bedrooms each have a soft bed, with plenty of luggage storage underneath. You will have to pay if you want to watch the flat-screen TV's Freeview channels, but if you'd rather read a book and get some sleep, you won't have to pay for what you don't need.
Wake up to a unique morning meal at the easyHotel. Buy your own orange breakfast box from reception to start your day.
On the morning of your departure, head to reception to check out by 10:00, and arrange your transfer - you can either jump on the Hoppa bus to terminals 1, 2 or 3 (for terminals 4 or 5, you'll need to change at terminal 1), or book a cab to drive you the short fifteen minutes to your terminal. It’s as easy as that.
