Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Whitebear62 Getting old now
Arrived at this hotel which I only now use for convienence. The room was freezing cold and the bathroom was actually bigger then the bed room but looked it was taken from the set of one flew over the cuckoos nest.
During my stay the hotel had a total power failure that lasted some two hours and resulted in a massive queue in the foyer with no one getting access to pay or do anything. The whole soma rugby team was also stick in this mess.
I have stayed at this hotel before and can now confirm after yet another bad experience. I will not be staying here again. The other holiday inn about half a mile up the road is much better and I have just booked that for a few nights going forward to see how they do. If this was anywhere else in the world it would not get past a two star at best.
Also if your going to get a taxi from t4 to this hotel your looking at around 16.00 minimum. So don't let the name confuse you. If you go by the bus it's much cheaper. It is distance close but cost wise it's London plus pricing to get to it.
The only thing going for it was the staff in the restaurant and the bar.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gines41 Excellent hotel !
The distance from the airport is really close. The system in place for buses from and to airpot is awsome, they pick you up and drop you in front of the hotel and it's really cheap. The hotel is super clean, the staff is really good and the service is excellent !!! No complaints at all, the executive room had a nice view and everything was in the way it should be.
This is an excellent choice if you going through Heathrow !

I was kind of surprised that airport shuttle bus is NOT free of charge in Heathrow airport.
In the States, so called airport Hotel is free shuttle bus service for the guest.
It's O.K., here is NOT the States but London.
Hotel itself is O.K.
Recommend this hotel if you have early morning departure flight in Heathrow.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SafeTraveler Good, solid hotel
Staying in the Heathrow area? Consider the Holiday Inn Ariel. The staff are well trained, organized and helpful. The hotel is located very near the airport, in fact many of the rooms face the landing strip so kids (and adults, too) can watch planes land from their hotel room window. Don't worry: noise is hardly noticeable due to the double glazed windows that, when closed, seal out all but the very largest of planes.
While you can take the scheduled Hotel Hoppa bus from Heathrow for around £5 per person, there are many local London buses that can be used from the airport's Central Bus Station -- including the #105 and #140 -- for free because you remain in (or more accurately, stay just at the edge of) the Heathrow Free Travel Area.
The restaurant is adequate, although a bit pricey if you're comparing some other cities. But then again, it is London so nothing comes cheaply. :-)
One thing that people new to Heathrow should know is that there are several Holiday Inns in the airport area, and the Ariel property is one of two actually on the same Bath Road! Make sure you go to the correct one (it helps to print out your reservation for the taxi driver or bus operator).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NDG07 A wonderful experience, excellent facilities.
I arrived back at London Heathrow, tired, hungry, unable to continue my journey home & needing somewhere close to terminal 3, to stay overnight. The hotel booking service at the airport was wonderful, within the hour, I was booked into your hotel, a beautifully appointed room, everything had been catered for. Although there was a private function on, I was able to get a meal, which was heaven after airline food & the complimentary Kit-Kat was a real treat. I will certainly stay with you again and recommend you to my friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Another great stay... defined by the staff and their commitment to customer service
I stay at this hotel very often, but I had to comment on tonights stay.
On arrival from a tiring drive Jade and Vierja met me at reception and had me laughing within minutes just by checking in and chatting.... great way to overcome a stressful drive.
I had already eaten before driving but the temptation of a hand made curry, by Qasim the Food manager, was too much to resist with my wine and I honestly say it was a superb plate of food. Depth of flavour and complexity I would commend the chef ten fold.
Great service at the bar from Tracey and Anna and its time for bed.
Once again, from a business traveller that spends every night of the week in IHG, I was made to feel at home... And that is the battle won
