Hotel near airport Sep 21, 2015
All the reasonable hotels within safe travel distance from Heathrow Airport are ridiculously overpriced, and Thistle London Heathrow is no exception.

After passing through customs at Heathrow, make your way to Terminal 5 via the Heathrow Express. This is a free train service between terminals 3, 4 and 5, that also makes the run to London Paddington in approx 15 mins (although that trip will cost you). At Terminal 5, follow the signs to the bus stops, and catch the 423 from stand 6. This is a free public bus which stops directly opposite the Thistle hotel. Stops are displayed on a small screen behind the driver. Third stop on the journey is Heathrow Park Thistle Hotel, and the hotel is a short walk back in the direction you came from.

The hotel itself is massive, with long corridors that look like optical illusions. Be aware there are no elevators, so you may need to climb some stairs (or ask the hotel staff to carry your bags for you). The standard rooms are basic, with small bathrooms and all the usual amenities (minus a safe - advertised but nowhere to be found, or a minibar). The buffet breakfast was extensive and decent. There was no option for fresh omelettes, but the food on offer was fine, as was the dinner in the same restaurant. One of the more interesting benefits of the restaurant is being in viewing distance of the airport - you can watch planes take off and land while you eat your meal. The sound of planes can at times seem a bit too noisy, but they generally stop during the hours when you're likely to be sleeping.

Overall, this hotel is not a place you would stay more than a single night. But if you're looking for a chance to overcome some jet lag before continuing on to your next destination, Thistle London Heathrow makes a comfortable respite.

This hotel lies about 10 minutes by Hotel Hoppa from Heathrow. I assume it is visited by people who have to stay overnight to catch an early morning flight from Heathrow. The hotel also has conference facilities so I assume it also serves more-than-1-day meetings. But I sincerely hope that someone will very soon understand that this hotel is "not done" any longer. Looking at the walls, carpets and furniture one may assume that no member of the staff can remember the latest renovations. The bar has no ambience at all and you don't want to stay there longer than 1 beer (£ 1.80 that's a plus). Room: small, windows cannot be opened, no minibar.

Plus: breakfast

Sorry guys, even in the best mood, I wouldn't recommend this hotel
