Hyatt Hotel London Heathrow as simple as 1,2,3,4


The Hyatt Place Hotel at London Heathrow Airport may have started a new era in the hospitality industry. The revolutionary invention and implementation for Hyatt Hotels and Resorts showcased at this  London property is as simple as 1,2,3,4.

Taking a shower in a hotel bathroom has its challenges. One of the challenges I always have is to identify Shampoo, Conditioner, and Soap bottles after getting wet in the shower. Unless your eyesight is 20/20 most people won’t be able to figure out the difference in looking at the small print on bottles provided.

Hyatt in London may have started a new era in the bathroom shampoo policy in naming their bottles 1,2,3 and 4 and color code them as well.

Shampoo at Hyatt London

1 stands for shampoo most people use first. 2  for conditioner what usually follows your shampoo and 3 for soap. 4 is for lotion –  what a great idea.

I was impressed this morning staying at the Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport hotel.

This hotel is really a great deal overall. 59 pounds a night gives you the famous and extremely comfortable Hyatt Grand Bed, a clean soundproof room overlooking London Heathrow Airports runway and a wide selection of excellent food.

It’s exactly what one needs after a long day or night on an aircraft. Burgers, Steaks, Asian, Pizza, Pasta, Sandwiches are on the menu. I had the Carb meat tagliatelle and a side salad for about 20 pounds.

Breakfast was included for me and better than any breakfast you would expect at a 4 or 5-star hotel restaurant in many places.

Hyatt Place London Heathrow lobby

A clean and welcoming place with a gym, a bar, but with just two critical points to mention. Hyatt mentioned on their website about the Hyatt Place London Heathrow:  “You’ll be in the heart of Heathrow Airport, just moments from Terminals 2, 3 and 5. ”

This is a misleading statement. The hotel is a shuttle bus trip away and it took me more than 1 hour to get there. When you follow the hotel instructions to go to the bus-terminal and look for bus stop 18 you will wait forever.

If you can follow the correct path it’s a short transit to the airport and you can be at Paddington Station in the heart of London 15 minutes later.

There are two bus terminals and two stops 18 – but this is not explained. All signs from the Star Alliance Terminal 2 would guide you to the wrong bus terminal.
A very nice driver working for Thrifty / Budget rental car took me to the hotel saying it’s on his way.


Otherwise, the Hyatt Place London Heathrow is a very reasonable to consider option when staying in London or to get rest between flights and is beating 200 pounds night rates you would pay at similar London city hotels.
