As good as it gets
The Sofitel is an ideal choice for customers who want hotels near Heathrow Terminal 5 - it's connected to the airport by a covered walkway so you really can't get any closer. You can expect a great service, comfortable rooms and amazing facilities - meaning you can board the plane feeling relaxed, refreshed and pampered from the VIP treatment.
A great deal of thought has gone into making sure the Sofitel provides everything its guests could desire, and doing it in style. Equal attention goes into the food, so whether youre a tea connoisseur or enjoy fine French cuisine, prefer a stir fry or handmade pizza, youll find your tastes satisfied.
The Sofitel is one of the larger Heathrow hotels, so there's lots of room to cram in loads of amenities that will help make your stay that bit more pleasurable. On the ground floor is Avenue Sofitel, where you can find gift shops, a hair salon and fashion, jewellery and luggage vendors, and dont forget Terminal 5 is just a short walk away, so there are plenty more shopping opportunities there.
For a change of pace after all that shopping, you could sit and relax in the beautiful Zen Garden, or grab a work out in the 24-hour gym. If you're looking to pamper yourself, visit the beautiful spa to take advantage of the Hydro Suite, where you can wind down in the sauna, enjoy aromatherapy in the steam room, bubble your cares away in the Jacuzzi or simply float in the vitality pool. The spa and the relaxation room are open from 8am (9am on weekends) until 9pm for a fee. Alternatively, for an extra fee, you can book a relaxing treatment or apply the finishing touches with a manicure or pedicure.
I always use Holiday Extras for airport hotels. I find they provide lots of choice and the process is incredibly simple. I usually choose the same hotels and the Holiday Extra's pricing is competitive.Herr Knes (Sofitel)
