    As my business appointments were in southside central Dublin, ariel house is a very convenient location. It is reasonable in price and quite comfortable. I had stayed here previously when John O'Brien was the owner...and have recommended it to others.

    I thought the location was excellent.

    But for what it was it was very expensive. It lacked a bar or social relaxing room. The rooms were ok but old fashioned and sparse. Probably would not use it again

    Nice old house, quiet but in easy reach of dublin centre with a tram stop just at the end of the road, good pleasant staff with a good breakfast choice. Would recommend.

    My only problem was when I rang the hotel to look for directions I was within 500 meters of it but the staff member did not know any of the locations I mentioned to him which I could see, imagine my surprise when I found it a few meters away after driving the area for another half hour The staff who served tables etc were friendly and efficient a pleasant stay

    Lovely charming atmosphere. Makes a lovely change from the usual busy chain hotels.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The rooms were spacious and relaxing. The room were clean and the breakfast was very good.

    The hotel stored our luggage after we checked out, but the bags were stored in a hallway of the hotel, not in a luggageroom so the bags were in reach of everyone that passed through the hallway. Nothing was missing when we picked up the bags, but if you have valuables in your bag it might be a good idea to have this in mind before you store your bags.

    My family and i were very impressed with how helpful everyone was. Everyone was always willing to take the extra step to help our family, would stay again, and will recommend the Ariel House to everyone who goes to Dublin.

    From the moment you walk through the door and smell the fresh brewing coffee in the sitting room you know you are in for a lovely stay. There are cakes, cookies, tea and coffee available all dayin the front siting room. The desk is always staffed and they are very helpful and polite. Right next to Lansdowne Road Rugby stadium and Dart station so very easy to get to the city centre, also a nice short walk to the city if the weather permits.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Very friendly and welcoming staff, breakfasts excellent, room and bed very comfortable. Nice quiet location, within walking distance of o2 arena, where we saw Tom Petty.

    Although there was nothing wrong with our room (257), would have preferred one on a higher floor, as it was a little dark.

    Ambiance of the Victoriaan house and clean rooms.
