Heathrow Hotels London

Make An Informed Choice From Over 30 Heathrow Hotels

Arora International Hotel Heathrow Airport

Heathrow Hotel Accommodation is available at competitive prices in all sectors from Bed & Breakfast, through no frills, budget chain hotels to luxury 5 star hotels.

There are only two hotels which you can walk to from a passenger terminal and do not need to get a transfer vehicle of one sort or another. These are the Sofitel Heathrow at Terminal 5 and the Hilton Heathrow at Terminal 4. Needless to say these are the two most expensive hotels at Heathrow. There are no hotels in the central area of Heathrow where Terminals 1,2 and 3 are located.

To make an informed hotel choice at Heathrow the key points are:

  • Heathrow Airport has five terminals numbered 1,2,3,4 and 5. All are far apart from one another. Which passenger terminal you are flying into can make a real impact on the ease of getting to and from your hotel. (There is a hotel map at the bottom of this page with relative positions)

  • The only passenger terminals that have hotels you can walk to are Terminal 4 and Terminal 5 with the Hilton Terminal 4 and Sofitel at Terminal 5. These normally have the most expensive rooms available on the airport.

  • Hotels at Heathrow are not allowed to operate their own complementary transfer shuttle to and from the passenger terminals. Instead the airport authority licences a Heathrow Hoppa Bus service. The Hoppa Bus has a route network consisting of routes each covering three or four airport hotels, typically at 30 minute frequencies. There is a full charge made for this. Some hotels you can access using the local public buses which are more frequent and cheaper, sometimes free.

  • Room rates at Heathrow Airport Hotels are driven by the business market. You will find, and especially at the four star hotels, that room rates on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday are much cheaper than the rest of the week.

  • Many of the hotels at Heathrow are relatively isolated. If you eat and drink at the hotel and use Hoppa Buses for the airport transfers you may easily spend more on these extras than the room itself. The main hotel strip is the Bath Road. Find a hotel here and you have the options of pubs, restaurants and convenience stores outside the hotel, plus the option of using free public buses to get you to and from the passenger terminals.

  • The modern marketing trick of offering a low headline room rate to lure a booking then stinging you with over the top prices for those extras like hotel transfers, internet access and breakfast is a alive and very much kicking at Heathrow hotels. You can easily pay more for the extras than the hotel room. however brief your stay. So do factor all the costs into your purchasing decision, not just the headline room rate.

  • Nearly every hotel at Heathrow, budget or luxury is a large chain hotel. Many of the main global hotel chains have several hotels at Heathrow. Its easy to turn up at the wrong hotel, but the right chain. Chains with more than one hotel include Holiday Inn (4), Sheraton (2), Marriott (2), Travelodge (2), Hilton (2) and Premier Inn (3).
