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.

Very good location. Very near of the london heathrow airport. You can take a free shuttlebus from the airport and you will be sleeping in no time. I took it for a quick sleep in a connection from an overnight flight and the checkin was easy and
transportation great. Price was affordable, the room clean and spacious.
Location was very convenient to airport and AVIS/Budget rental car where I had rented. So I just walked over to the hotel after I had returned the vehicle late in the evening. Only drawbacks were the internet usage charge and lack of coin laundry.
There should be an option between 1hr or 24hr internet charge for those that are just staying to catch the morning flight.
This hotel was located in very close proximity to the airport. The shuttle was 4 pounds each way, and the gentlemen driving the shuttle were very nice and extremely helpful. Upon arriving at the hotel I was requested to run my credit card, which I
have never been requested to do. I was very disappointed with the condition of the hallway, and the fact that the evening menu was expensive and left much to be desired. In spite of these disappointments I found the room to be very comfortable and clean (except for a hair I found on the floor in the bathroom). If I need to stay close to Heathrow in the future, I would consider staying in this hotel again.
This hotel was good value, but I would not book here again because of the distance from central london, which is where I spent my time. It took us 50 minutes each way by tube and bus to get to our destinations daily. I stayed here because I could
not find a better deal, but maybe I should have looked longer.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
the only thing nearby worth mentioning other than mcdonalds was the airport.
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.
