Mr. and Mrs. Howe (I just love saying that) is about to leave the UK for a long time to go back to South America, and we want to end this adventure with great memories. Hence, we hoped to stay in an extraordinary hotel before we leave. You see, I’m not really a fan of the usual old drab, cardboard box airport hotel. I want something fresh and pleasing. I want something worth – sharing to my families, friends and readers. Trust me when I say that I’d rather sleep in a hostel with colorful hammocks and eccentric interior than a boring hotel airport. At least, those ‘colorful’ accommodations embrace unique personalities.Why Ibis Styles Heathrow, London is Not Your Ordinary Airport Hotel

Good thing though that on our last days in the UK, we were able to experience Ibis Styles Heathrow, London! It’s a 3- star property with 140 amazing rooms to choose from. It is right next to the airport, so you don’t have to rush yourself in time for your flight.

“The Sky’s the Limit.”

All guests will be able to experience something different in Ibis Styles Heathrow, London. Their interior is pretty much inspired by the aviation industry. Upon entering its reception, you’d find yourself being amazed at a ‘wing’ of a plane. You can even relax in their lounge that are surrounded by hot air balloons. And of course, the experience will continue as you go to your own room complete with humorous walls and fancy furniture. And before I forget, the guests will be welcomed with a glass of wine. With a welcome such as that, you know you are in good hands.
