Lounge Review: Lufthansa Business Lounge London Heathrow

Lufthansa Business Lounge London Seating

The Lufthansa Business Lounge London Heathrow is one of several Star Alliance lounges at London’s biggest airport. In this review, I’ll explain what you can expect of the lounge!

Terminal 2 at London Heathrow was overhauled a couple of years ago and thus has plenty of lounges. As the terminal is mainly used by Star Alliance lounges, most of the lounges are from different members of the alliance. This includes two Lufthansa lounges in the main terminal and three further lounges in the Satellite Terminal. I’ve already reviewed the following lounges at the terminal:

That said, let’s get back to the actual review of the Lufthansa Lounge, which is one of the nicest ones in the network. There’s also a Senator Lounge “in” the lounge, but I’ll review that separately.

Seating in the Lufthansa Business Lounge London Heathrow

The Lufthansa Business Lounge London Heathrow comes with the new Lufthansa lounge design, which you’ll also find in the new lounges in Munich.

This means that the lounge has a fresh look and is also very bright thanks to large windows (which sadly offer no view).

There are several different seating options, most of them the typical lounge chairs, which all come with plugs and USB-chargers, which is a big plus. The different areas are somewhat separated, but there is not all that much privacy after all.

Other seating options include high-top seating on several larger tables closer to the buffet as well as the typical dining tables with two chairs each, which are located right next to the buffet.

On the one side of the lounge, there’s also a large business area of sorts, where you can find a couple of workstations with computers, several printers and also some high-top seating without computers, where you can use and charge your own laptop.

All in all, I like the design of the Lufthansa Business Lounge London and wouldn’t mind spending some more time here.

Surprisingly, the Lufthansa Business Lounge London is catered by Do&Co, which usually isn’t the caterer for Lufthansa. That’s quite a good thing as the catering here is superior to what you would normally find in a Lufthansa Business Lounge. There are various salads and other cold options to chose from, including veggies, bread rolls and more.

Then there are two types of soup with several extras to add, which I find to be a cool feature.

Moreover, you can find two to three hot options, which are varying and are very tasty in my experience.

If you feel like something sweet, you can choose from whole fruits and several other desserts.

Drinks on offer include soft drinks, juices, beer and wine. Additionally, there is a wide selection of spirits and also sparkling wine readily available at the buffet. I also like that there are various snack options available next to the drink selection.

All in all, I thought that the catering in the Lufthansa Business Lounge London Heathrow was very good. Whenever I visited, everything tasted fresh and good, which is something I can’t say about all Lufthansa lounges.

Entertainment in the Lufthansa Business Lounge London Heathrow

As I’ve already mentioned, the Lufthansa Business Lounge in London comes with a spacious business center, which is were I usually end up sitting as it’s less crowded than the main area.

Additionally, there are plugs and (fast) WiFi throughout the lounge, so you can actually be productive regardless of where you end up sitting. You can also grab newspapers and selected magazines, which are available in the lounge.

Other than that it’s worth noting that there are showers and washrooms in the lounge.

Overall impressions of the Lufthansa Business Lounge London Heathrow

The Lufthansa Business Lounge in London is definitely one of the best lounges in the network. It’s a spacious and bright lounge with plenty of seating, a great buffet with tasty food and a nice drink selection and offers good entertainment, too. All in all, I wouldn’t mind spending a longer layover here. The only real issue I have with the lounge is that it tends to get crowded (and noisy) during rush hour.

Curious what the world of lounges has to offer in comparison?
