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.
For most hotels demand is driven by the business market so you will normally find room rates at Heathrow Airport hotels cheaper at the weekend.
Heathrow Airport has four terminals numbered 2, 3, 4 and 5. The passenger terminal you travel from is the most important factor when choosing a Heathrow hotel.
Heathrow Terminals 2 and 3 are located in the centre of the airport between the runways. Until recently there was not enough land in the central area for hotels. However, in the summer of 2019, The Hilton Garden Inn London Heathrow Terminal 2 was opened - the first hotel connected to Terminal 2, so you can now walk from your hotel to the terminal. Outside of this, you cannot walk out of the central area, you have to take a vehicle of some description to your hotel.
In addition, in October 2019 the Aerotel T3 London Heathrow also opened its doors. This hotel is located in Terminal 3 itself, offering less luxury but flexible stays with hourly rates.
A road tunnel exits the central area underneath the runway to the north side of the airport.
The majority of hotels at Heathrow are found along the northern perimeter road, called the Bath Road. All these hotels north of the airport have terminal shuttle buses to Terminals 2 and 3 and many have free public buses too. This area also has a good choice of pubs, fast food and convenience stores outside the hotels you can walk to.
Heathrow Terminal 4 is isolated on its own on the south side of the airport far from other terminals. There is little in the area apart from airport businesses.
However, unlike other passenger terminals Heathrow Terminal 4 has a choice of hotels connected to the passenger terminal by covered walkway.
These hotels in order of cost are: Premier Inn Terminal 4, Holiday Inn Express Terminal 4, Crowne Plaza Terminal 4 and Hilton Terminal 4.
The only other airport hotels this side of the airport with hotel shuttles are the Travelodge Terminal 5 and the Hilton Garden Inn. Some hotels from the other side of the airport also run hotel shuttles to Terminal 4, but no more than about half of them.
Heathrow Terminal 5 is isolated on its own on the west side of the airport far from other terminals. There is one hotel connected to Terminal 5, the Sofitel Heathrow, one of the finest and most expensive hotels at Heathrow.
There are many hotels with Terminal 5 in their name but none are near the passenger terminal, some indeed are several miles away! However all these Terminal 5 hotels have transfer shuttles and nearly all the hotels on the north side of the airport serving terminals 2 and 3 also have shuttles to Terminal 5.
For example, there is the the Thistle Hotel Terminal 5 Heathrow - one of the closest hotels to Terminal 5 at Heathrow and the only hotel with the automated pod link between the Terminal 5 building at Heathrow and an airport hotel.
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 Hotel Hoppa Bus service.
The Hoppa Bus has a route network consisting of routes each covering three or four airport hotels, typically at 20-30 minute frequencies. There is a full charge made for this, though it's a flat same charge for every hotel no matter how far the transfer journey.
The airport also subsidises public buses at Heathrow Airport. Many hotels, especially those on the Bath Road you can travel to your passenger terminal free of charge. Find out more about public bus alternatives to Hotel Hoppa Bus Heathrow.
