Back in March, I highlighted how the Sofitel at Heathrow Terminal 5 – directly connected to the terminal, and by far the best hotel at Heathrow – was being sold very cheaply by lastminute.com on its ‘Top Secret’ list of unnamed London hotels. I repeated the article in May because the offer was still running.
Two months later, it is STILL there. The Sofitel still has availability, mainly on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. The price is £98. Use the promotional code ‘trialtopsecret’ (lower case) and it drops another 10% to £88.
In theory, the hotel name is meant to be secret. You are looking for the property marked “Elegance and comfort easy access to the airport”.
It is the Sofitel at Heathrow. Plenty of people have already booked it and discovered it was the Sofitel. In any event, you can prove it. Once you have selected a date, it will show you a star rating for the hotel ‘based on 4,143 Tripadvisor reviews’. This is exactly the amount received by the Sofitel.
This is a very decent discount. On August 1st, a day I picked a random, the cheapest rate on the Sofitel site is £135 vs £88 via this link.
When you remember that taking the dedicated Hotel Hoppa bus to any other hotel at Heathrow will cost £5 per person each way, and that no other hotel at Heathrow is anywhere near as nice, it is a no-brainer if you are flying out of Terminal 5.
