This year is the first time the Skytrax awards have had a category dedicated specifically to airport hotels. The award nominees were assessed based on a survey conducted on more than 860,000 guests who stayed at some 195 airport hotels around the world.

Hotel guests picked their favourite airport hotels according to criteria that included the overall standard of staff service, the cleanliness and comfort levels in guest rooms, the quality of food and beverages, and the practicality of reaching airport hotels from airports and other locations.

The results of the survey showed Sofitel London Heathrow as the number-one airport hotel in Europe. The hotel was also awarded third place amongst airport hotels around the world.

Edward Plaisted from Skytrax said the award showed that yet another airport hotel had delivered a top-notch, five-star service. He said the standard of service provided at this airport hotel matched what could typically be expected from resort locations or city-centre hotels.

Heathrow’s Sofitel is the only hotel at the airport that provides direct access to Heathrow Terminal 5. Travellers can use a covered walkway to reach terminal 5. The airport’s other terminals are easily reached using rail connections.

Sofitel London Heathrow has 605 guestrooms, including 27 suites. There are 45 meeting rooms, 2 bars, 2 restaurants and a tea salon.

The five-star standard is further bolstered by a range of retail outlets that includes a jewellery shop and a hair salon. The hotel’s health spa and gym are state-of-the-art and there is a hotel car park.
