Disliked: Amenities
This is a transit hotel at the airport, I would not expect to pay for the shuttle (will not have local currency). Also would expect that hotel will carry some power converters which guest can borrow.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
This was a one night stay for access to Heathrow. Hotel Hoppa was great so location convenient and very quiet - didn't hear a single plane in my room but could see them a few hundred metres from the restaurant. Bed was comfortable and room a reasonable size for one night and clean enough but not spotless. Breakfast was very good. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Down side - Corridor carpets mended with tape in several places. Decor very tired and dated, worn paintwork, chipped and marked bathroom tiles. Realise it would cost a fortune to update and it certainly wasn't horrible so would stay again if the need arose.

The staff were very nice, the room was better than expected and very clean and the pod transfer was super easy better than spending £35 on a rude taxi driver.

Room was nice and clean. No elevator, but only 2 floors. Restaurant has a great view of the runway. Pod from/to T5 is really cool. Staff was very helpful.

The Thistle was exactly what we needed for our one night stay at Heathrow for a morning flight the next day. Pros: -It has the pod service to Heathrow Terminal 5, which you can use for only £6 each. It was fast, easy, and super convenient. -The room was very clean. -The wifi is fast. -There is AC in the room. -There are a couple of pub options close by for an easy dinner and there is a restaurant on site (though we didn't try the restaurant). -It was a great price (under £100 for the night). Cons: -The property itself is extremely tired and could use a renovation. When I first saw it, I thought it looked more like some sort of guarded facility - a bit scary to be honest! -The furniture in the room was also tired and old, but at least the bed was comfortable and the bed linens were nice. -There are no added amenities - anything extra will cost you. The only "extra" items in the room were a kettle and mugs along with an iron and ironing board. Bottom line: For the price and for a one-night stay to be nice and close to Terminal 5 at Heathrow, this is a good option.

It was alright. Best pricing around Heathrow, which is a great bonus! It had a bit of a motel feel with oldish rooms but the bed was exceptionally comfortable and the POD to Terminal 5 is very convenient. I would definitely come back if I needed to spend again 12 hours between flights.

Convenient way to get to the airport and terminals. Room was small but comfortable. My upset was there was no restaurant or bar to get something after certain time and not much around. But it did do the job to catch my flight easily next day.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Pleasant and helpful staff. Very quiet at night. Mild odor in bathroom left some question in cleanliness, but otherwise good. No soap available in room; no one responded to telephone call to operator. Buses from airport Terminal 5 don't run after 10:30 or so, so you need to take a taxi for the maybe 10-min. drive from Terminal 5.

They were extremely difficult to find once I arrived at the airport. The phone line to call them expedia supplied went to a reservation service and was closed so there was no way to call and ask them how to get there. Once we had worked it out and arrived, they told us getting back would require us to pay them 6 pounds each to ride the pods back to the airport. but the pods are free and the 6 pounds was to get a code to the gate leading out of the hotel parking lot!! Seems like a con to me.
