Thistle London Heathrow Terminal 5 was picked as I needed a hotel close to the airport for my flight to Russia. This was picked as I got a discount with hotels.com I booked a standard double room, from their website
“Our Standard Double rooms at Thistle Heathrow Terminal 5 have all you need to feel relaxed and comfortable before or after your flight. Quiet, spacious and decorated in warm colours and fabrics, each room has a flat screen LCD TV and fast, free unlimited Wi-Fi so you can stay connected at all times. Plus, the en-suite bathroom includes complimentary toiletries and hairdryer – if you’ve forgotten to pack anything”
When I arrived, I realised that I had stayed here before, years ago. The hotel is only a ground floor and a first floor. And what I also liked what that I could use The Heathrow Pod to get to the terminal. The Heathrow Pod is £5 per person per journey payable at the Hotel Reception at arrival or departure.
And I also wanted to try the Runway View Restaurant, Bar and Terrace. With amazing views of the runways at Terminal 5, it’s the perfect setting to relax, catch-up and unwind. You can watch planes line up and land while eating. It was such a fun experience, as some men would get excited if a Boeing, a huge plane it seems land.
If I was travelling on another early flight from Terminal 5, I would book to stay here again.
