Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel London Reviews
Recommended for a stop over Nov 26, 2011
I arrived London Gatwick too late in the evening to make it to London Heathrow to catch the last flight to Oslo, so I had to find accommodation for the night. Radisson had a good deal (£56), so I booked at the Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel. The hotel is located in Hays, so not directly at the airport. This was not a problem since you get there either by taxi or the Hoppa Bus. From terminal 5 the Hoppa Bus runs twice an hour and takes 15 minutes. From terminal 1,2,3 it runs every 20 minutes and takes 10 minutes.
After a long journey from Marrakesh to Gatwick and then Heathrow I was quite tired. It was therefore very nice to received the warm welcome I did at the Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel. The receptionist was friendly, informative and very courteous, and check in was very efficient. Even though it is a big hotel, it had a warm atmosphere. Even in my hiking boots and with my camera bag I felt very comfortable among the chandeliers and elegant furniture.
The room was large, nicely decorated and had all the amenities you might need. I had two comfortable single beds. WI-FI was free, but if you don´t bring your own laptop, there is a computer room, free of charge, on the ground floor.
The bathroom was not too big, but very clean, had a tub and some amenities.
I left very early in the morning and therefore had no time for breakfast. The restaurant looked nice and Radisson in Europe usually has a nice breakfast buffet.
If you have more time than what I did, you can also enjoy their Health Spa.
Check out was as efficient and friendly as check in. I can highly recommend Radisson Edwardian Heathrow Hotel for a stop over. I would happily stay there again.

Affordable, close to the airport Jul 06, 2010
This hotel is close to the airport, really close. The airport shuttle takes less than 25 minutes to get to your terminal even with stopping at other hotels. To get to London you only need one bus to Hatton Cross metro station and then straight to the center you go on Piccadilly line. BUT, it will take you a good hour an a half on average to do that. So if you are planning on getting into the city every day, it's a pain and costs money. Also, you won't be able to stay out much later past midnight, since the metro closes.
Nicely sized, enough space to put your luggage. The place is tidy and pleasant. My room was on the second floor overlooking the parking space in the back and keeping window blinds open was not an option, since during the day the numerous hotel employees could easily see inside and during the night the outside lights were too darn bright.
Room has iron, ironing board and even a pant press. I have not used anything in the hotel itself, but there are quite a few various rooms, as the hotel is definitely centered on catering to large and medium business meetings.
I've only had breakfast and found it quite satisfying. You got the regular eggs, bacon, taters and yogurt, as well as cereals. A few juices and loads of watermelon/cantelope/oranges/fruit salad type of stuff.
Didn't have much use for it, but could be a bit better, especially for a place that has a 1000-crystal chandelier at the entrance. I got in early at around 10:40 am and asked if I can check-in early. I was told that I have to wait half an hour for a room to be available. I opted to wait in the entrance hall in plain view of the concierge. Fifty minutes later, tired of waiting, I came up to them again and asked if the room was ready. And yes, it was. Apparently they just didn't care to tell the waiting people (I wasn't the only one) that rooms were ready for them.
The price of 79 pounds was rather good, considering that I was in town during Wimbledon, but if you want to see the city daily, the hassle might outweigh the price.
