The hotel that's more than you'd expect

Holiday Inn Express may be a tried and trusted brand, but the Express at Heathrow terminal 5 will still surprise you. Along with the Great Room bar/restaurant that you'll find in all Holiday Inn Express hotels, the T5 has a fantastic Italian restaurant that wouldn't be out of place in London's West End. Elsewhere, there's a 24-hour bar in the lobby serving Costa coffee.

The rooms are more comfortable and stylish than you'd expect from a three-star. You can choose from soft or firm pillows for your cosy bed and climate control makes sure the room is always welcoming. Modern en suite bathrooms with huge showers, and a good-sized workspace, show there's more to the hotel than you'd think.

Being one of our best value Heathrow airport hotels, it's easy to see why this is a customer favourite.

Just a short Hoppa from the terminal

All this and the hotel is still just two miles from the airport, with the Heathrow Hoppa taking you from right outside the hotel lobby to terminal 5 in just 10 minutes. You can even buy tickets from a machine in the hotel lobby. If you have more time, and kids, on your hands, the hotel is also just a quick drive from Legoland, and in the lobby, there's a great children's area with toys and an X-Box.

This is still a limited-service hotel, but you'd be hard pressed to find anything lacking. The T5 is exactly what you want from an airport hotel.

We recommend the Holiday Inn Express Terminal 5 for:

A great restaurant -Tratt's pizza and pasta wouldn't be out of place in the West End, and kids love it!

Families -Just a short hop from Legoland - and there's a great play area too to keep your children entertained.

Convenience -Just 10 minutes from terminal 5, with a door-to-door bus service.

Getting to the airport:

The Heathrow Hoppa shuttle bus runs regularly from the hotel to Terminal 5 during the airport?s opening hours (5am - 11:30pm). The bus stops at other hotels on the way, so it can take between 20 and 30 minutes.

The Hoppa costs £6 per person one way or £11 per person return.

If you are flying from another terminal, you can catch the bus to T5 then take the free Heathrow Express train. We?d recommend leaving plenty of time.


If you need it, overnight parking at the hotel costs £10.
