    I know that there has been much discussion in the past of the best way to get to hotels in the vicinity of Heathrow without using the dreaded Hoppa service. Apologies for raising this one again!!

    I have a late flight into t5 from Larnaca next month (arrives 22.30) and need to be on the 06.40 onwards to Glasgow next morning.I booked the Ibis in Bath Road for 8,250 Avios which seemed a better option than paying the cash price of most hotels in the vicinity, given my length of stay.

    What is the best way to get to the Ibis at that time of night. I think the last H56 Hoppa runs at 23.14 with the first back at about 05.00.

    is it walkable in reasonable time? Is there a service bus which would be better value and more flexible?

    Not walkable’though free buses 423 from T5 and any double decker from central (free train from T5) to Harlington corner is free and later night bus from T5 goes there.
    Check times of buses on free app.”Bus checker. Ibis is about 50m from Harlington corner.

    Next time, for such a short stay, you might wish to have a look at the Yotel in T4.

    Hey Tom,

    The 423 bus from T5 goes to Harlington Corner – the last bus is at 00.48 (1st bus back is around 5.00am) and is free (if you travel you one further stop – you will have to pay) and free going back to T5 (there’s a Night bus service up to 6.00am – which is also free).

    BTW bargain Avios purchase for the room…not sure if Yotel is an Avios partner…

    hope this helps.
