Staying near London Heathrow Airport

A mind-blowing 78 million passengers pass through Heathrow Airport every year, making it the busiest airport in the UK by a country mile, and one of the busiest on the planet to boot.

It is, therefore, not hard to believe that Heathrow Airport hotels are always high in demand, both from business travellers and family holidaymakers. Talking of family travel, most airlines and hotels tend to crank up the cost of flights and rooms when the summer kicks in between June and August. So, if you are flexible on dates, you may want to consider looking for deals outside the school break to reduce costs.

Top Heathrow Airport Hotels

If you like the sound of starting your R&R before you even hop on that flight to somewhere exotic, the Park Inn by Radisson is just opposite the entrances to Terminals 1, 2 and 3 and boasts an indoor pool, fitness centre and on-site restaurant. Or perhaps you’d like to indulge in a range of massage treatments at the 4-star Leonardo Hotel, which is just down the road – pre-flight hot stone anyone? And if that’s all a bit too fancy for your liking, the clean and simple rooms of the ibis Styles are great for families and shoestring travellers alike. This hotel option is a mere 6-minute drive to Heathrow Airport and offers a free continental breakfast and free WiFi.

Where to stay near Heathrow Airport

The village of Longford has become the de facto centre of Heathrow Airport hotels. Sat just by the terminals, it's a charming place that mingles convenient accommodations with half-timbered Tudor architecture and pretty river bridges. The London suburb of Hounslow is another option. There's more in the way of restaurants, bars and high-street shopping there, all just a couple of Tube stops from the departure halls. Alternatively, you could bed down in one of the many hotels in lively Paddington. A 15-minute express train service can take you from that part of Central London straight to the check-in at LHR.
