Stay just 15 minutes from Heathrow Airport by shuttle bus at the homely Holiday Inn London-Heathrow Ariel hotel. Friendly staff welcome you to the 4-storey Holiday Inn London-Heathrow Ariel, an unusual ring-shaped building framing a small courtyard. You can dine on hearty fare like steak and pizza in our stylish Junction restaurant , with views of planes taking off and coming in to land. Take the handy Hoppa shuttle bus from outside the hotel to reach Heathrow Airport check-in desks in 15 minutes. We're easy to reach by car, less than 2 miles from the M4 motorway , and it's a short drive to do business with Heathrow-based companies such as BAA . Holiday Inn London-Heathrow Ariel offers 6 bright meeting rooms where you can hold seminars and workshops for up to 50 delegates. Wireless Internet in the hotel's public areas keeps you connected and there's a 24-hour Business Centre for printing and email. Please note journey times can vary depending on traffic, please check with reception for full journey times to each terminal.

Nice stay

The hotel was nice and not far from the airport at all! The hotel does have an bus to the airport, but it costs 4.5 pounds and stops at other hotels along the way so plan accordingly. The staff is very helpful! The bathrooms are old, but clean.

Ideal location for airport and easy transport links to the city. Rooms are spotlessly clean and the staff professional and courteous. Didn't try the menu although it all looked very appetising

Functional, if nothing else is available

For the same price there half a dozen other hotels in the same area that are newer, in better condition, cleaner, and with staff that don't almost universally have an attitude. (Really - an attitude when they're working at a Holiday Inn?!) That's not to say it's a terrible hotel. It's just not the best option for the money. It's an ok choice if nothing else is available.

Good For Sleeping

Nothing good or bad to say about the hotel. They don't believe in heat, I'll tell you that. Shower was warm but not hot and the room never heated up to my liking the thermometer was preset by the hotel. Other than that, it was a nice stay, good strong wifi and nice staff.

Overall, not the best place I've ever stayed

The HI Express Ariel is clearly living on borrowed time. It's old. They're doing the minimum they can to maintain it and squeeze the last $ possible out of it. Obviously, any hotel near Heathrow is going to be expensive, but beyond simple cost there is cost-benefit, and I don't see the benefit at this place. The standard rooms are very small, with barely enough room to fit down the side of the bed or along the end of it abutting the "desk" with the TV mounted on the wall above it. It's like a Japanese business hotel room, but without the thoughtful layout and clean facilities or attentive/useful staff. In my case, the bathroom reeked of mold and there was visible mold in many places along edges. The walls are paper thin. I could hear absolutely everything on both sides. The restaurant staff are obnoxious and the bar staff had trouble making the most basic of drinks. Check in was fine, so that's a positive. By shuttle, it's about ~20 minutes from T4 & T5. Cab is ~10 minutes. Take ~5 minutes off for T 1, 2, & 3. If it's all you can afford and you just need a place to sleep for the night then I'd maybe try it a second time (after checking again that nothing else was available) but I wouldn't otherwise expect I'd ever visit the place again. It's not terrible. It's just really mediocre for a lot of money.

Out the hotel front gate, turn left, next set of lights: a bowling alley! With food & drink at reasonable prices, people watching, and of course, bowling.

Airport stay

Just stayed one night in transit between Ireland and home. Was able to check in very late, due to a late flight, and the room was comfortable and clean. Price was decent, too, considering the location. Cool round building.

London Stay Over

Good experience. Clean room, no frills but good comfort. Easy to get to from the hotel on the Hotel Hoppa once we figured it out. Bus 555 also stops there and is free.

The Pheasant is a short walk into Harrington. There are also less expensive options further into the village.

It's ok to stay overnight but there is no free wifi

I've stayed there only one night and it's all fine, shuttles stop just in front of the hotel's door. The only slightly disappointing thing is that there is no free wifi.

Great plays to spend Overnight Layover

I landed in London at 4pm and wasn't flying out until 8:45am the next day, so an easy and affordable hotel was what I was looking for. London Heathrow Holliday Inn Ariel was in a perfect location, at a great price. I will say that although there was a free shuttle advertised, you actually have to pay 4pounds for a one way bus ticket to get to and from the airport. And there is no continental breakfast offered, but the rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful. I'll go back there for sure if the occasion arrises again.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The dining in the hotel is very convenient, but not very affordable for the food you get. I'd recommend eating elsewhere if you have the time.
