Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Amazing hotel, with really nice rooms. Good service and kind staff. Room had all needed furniture and even some tea/coffee. Beddings, towels, robes, slippers were present. (Nice point we had 2 eu adapted chargers and 4 usb). On breakfast there were some ready-made options (like cereal, bread, muffins, fruits) and the actual breakfast options from menu with waitresses ready to consult regarding allergies.

The Ariel House is beautiful and the staff are exceptionally helpful. The breakfast is delicious and filled with Irish favorites. We have stayed there on 3 occasions and definitely recommend the Ariel House. Close to mass transit that will take you to City Centre and within walking distance of many shops, pubs and restaurants. There are two caveats. #1 - if you are driving yourself, parking is extremely limited and the spaces are very narrow and close. #2 - there are steps up to the entry and all rooms require using stairs. No lifts are available. Still, the Ariel House will not disappoint.

Dear David, Thank you so much for your kind words and for choosing Ariel House for your stays in Dublin. We’re delighted to hear that you find our hotel beautiful and our staff exceptionally helpful. It’s wonderful to know that you enjoyed our delicious breakfast filled with Irish favourites, and that you would recommend Ariel House to others. We understand your feedback regarding parking and the lack of a lift system. As a historical building, installing a lift system presents certain challenges, but please rest assured that our front desk team is always ready to assist our guests with their luggage. Additionally, we’re glad that our two parking areas right in front of Ariel House have been helpful for our guests, especially in a city like Dublin where parking is extremely limited. Once again, thank you for your feedback and your recommendation. We are looking forward to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Ariel House for another charming stay in the future. Warmest regards, Engin Alkaya Guest Relations Manager

I gifted my parents a stay at this beautiful hotel, and they had a fantastic time. The rooms were super clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was rich and varied. What I particularly emphasize is the kindness, courtesy, and availability of the entire staff, to whom I would give 100 stars if possible. Congratulations and thank you very much to everyone!

Everything was perfect for my four night stay. The staff so helpful and polite. The room exquisite and clean and comfortable and roomy. Nice and warm. The breakfast was fantastic and included in the rate. This place is a hidden gem and attracts so many repeat clients. Could not be more convenient for the DART to town - three stops - and to Bray. Balls Bridge is a classy location with very good restaurants and bars. I would stay in no other place in Dublin.

We decided to go away for the night at the last minute. Booked direct and got a great price. When we arrived at reception, we were met with a beaming smile, a welcome back, and an upgrade . Ariel has continued its tasteful redevelopment and refurbishment whilst maintaining its high levels of charm, comfort, service, and their cracking breakfast.
