Book the 5-star Sofitel at Heathrow Terminal 5 for just £95 is currently running a special promotion on its ‘Top Secret’ list of unnamed London hotels.  This allows you to book the Sofitel London Heathrow Terminal 5 at a very attractive price.

The link to access the deals is here.

In theory, the hotel name is meant to be secret.  However, as is now listing the exact number of TripAdvisor reviews that a particular property has, it is very easy to work it out!

You cannot now link directly to ‘Top Secret’ pages for individual hotels.  You should search for properties at Heathrow and look for the one described as:

Luxury Hotel offering unforgettable stays at Heathrow

With ease of access to the airport, whilst having great links to central London. You will be impressed by the modern, elegant bedrooms ….

There is no doubt about it from the number of TripAdvisor ratings – and, in any event, plenty of people via Flyertalk have already booked it and discovered it was the Sofitel.

Sofitel Terminal 5 Heathrow

The price is generally around £115 or less.  This code – 6167144261687469 – which was posted at Flyertalk and was found on an obscure coupon site – take a further £20 off.

Given that the hotel often charges over £200 per night, this is a good deal.  The Sofitel is brand new (well, as old as Terminal 5, so not old at all) and is very well regarded.  Most importantly, it is connected directly to the terminal.

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.

Even better, the hotel has generally recognised Le Club AccorHotels status benefits for guests who stay on the Top Secret Hotels rate, although this should not be taken for granted.

    Booked a room for £82 (prior to our Bargain £996 Business Class Fare trip on Royal Jordanian to Bangkok you advised us about in October!) A double bargain; much more successful than my attempts to get any offers in the January sales!! Many thanks.

    Just booked this for a family trip to the USA in March -genius – thank you!

    Quick question for Accor – I am the booker for the whole family, but we are having two rooms. Can I collect the points on both rooms? (Am a newbie – can you tell?)

    • Some hotel schemes allow this, some don’t. Some impose odd rules (Hilton allows 2 rooms but ONLY if you merge the bills and you only make one payment.) Not sure about Accor ….

      • Accor do allow points to be collected for 2 rooms, however I wouldn’t expect any points for these bookings made via (Accor can be very stingy, even some rates booked through offline travel agents that a theoretically valid will be denied!).

        “During a stay, how many rooms can I earn points on ?
        Up to 2 rooms may be credited to your card, on the condition that you stay in one of those rooms, and that you pay for all expenses related to both rooms upon check-out.” (from

        • Agree with comments, however my partner put this to the test after booking friends (not us!) into Mercure Glasgow using Whilst we were waiting on friends in the lobby, asked at reception about getting points credit for the booking and got it! Then asked for the Plat upgrade and got told no!

    How is the connection between the Sofitel and T3? Is it worthy staying the night before for my 9am departure or should I just stick to an early (40minutes) taxi drive?
