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

close to airport

Close to airport, but bare bones. Room was hot and I couldn't adjust the temp. Bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. The charge to use the internet was high, 5 lbs an hour and the connection was slow.

Great to stay if you're passing through.

I booked this hotel as I wanted to rest up before heading back to the states, after a week in Scotland. It was an excellent deal and super convenient. The staff was exceptionally friendly, the lobby was nice, but the rooms were very basic - which, was to be expected. What struck me most was the hotel being the last stop in the "free zone" via most local London busses. While the hotel charges a fee, you can get a bus absolutely free & they come every few minutes. Overall, a great deal for what it is and where it's at. However, if you're looking to stay in London for more than a night, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.

Heathrow Holiday Inn

The room was spacious and very close to the airport. I did think that they should offer complimentary coffee in the lobby, especially since patrons are getting up early for flights and could use a cup.

Terrible Experience

Hotel has small rooms compared to what is advertised on the website and there is no microwave or fridge in the rooms. Internet is not free, you have to pay 15 pounds to use internet or 1 day and 6 pounds if you want to use the laptop in the lobby for 1 hour. To use the personal electric devices like shavers and hair dryers /straightners the room wall plugs were not working and the hotel asks for a 6pound deposit to use their adapter so you can use your electric devices. Very disappointing experience as rooms are small and they try to charge you for every service as internet and wall adapters. I also think that hotel should allow you to extend your stay at the same price if desired. Internet should be free, rooms should have microwave and fridge so people can keep little snacks as there are no stores in walking distance. We had to go to the lobby to have the baby feeder warm as there is no microwave in the room. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

convenient for a lay over

this was a layover stay. The check in staff were helpful and the dinner was great. The hotel was clean, but could use some updates. The Hoppa information was critical to having this not be a stressful part of the trip.

Great Value and Convenient Location

Great value and location in close proximately to Heathrow. Room was very comfortable and clean. Staff was helpful with airport transfer arrangements. This hotel is on the Hotel Hoppa line which provides economical airport transfers. The hotel arranged an alternate service for my very early morning return to the airport. I thought the hotel restaurant could offer a few lighter, more reasonably priced dinner options. Overall, the Holiday Inn Ariel provided exactly what I was looking for - a comfortable room close by the airport for early departure. I would definitely return when connecting through London Heathrow.

Good for the price

Been to London many times previously and even so working out the public transportation was a little tricky - to Heathrow is free on the London buses that go there (ie no need to use the Hotel Hoppa - just cross the street to the right of the hotel) but to Central London the bus stop to Hatton Cross station is a ways off. Planes a little noisy and breakfast 10GBP but can get similar breakfast @ other places (including Heathrow) for less

ALRIGHT FOR A ONE- NIGHT STAY

o.k. for an overnight, before or after your flight. quiet rooms. they gave us a horrible room first, then i complained and we were put in a satisfactory one. the "hints" we read on this website were helpful, when it came to getting around on the free bus to the underground/airport etc.
