The Ariel House is very much as advertised. The breakfasts are excellent, served in a charming breakfast room near Reception. We stayed in a Jr. Suite, room 255, which had a rather odd configuration. It was oblong shaped which meant that the sitting area was narrow and you could not really watch the TV from the easy chairs. The king size bed was very comfortable and we specifically asked for a bed without footboard as my husband is tall and dislikes fighting a restriction at the end of the bed. The bathroom was modern but small, very little shelf space for toiletries. The shower had excellent water pressure and a steady temperature. A DVD player and a couple of movies were placed in the room, a nice touch. The room and hotel were spotlessly clean throughout. Be aware that there are steep stairs and many dividing swing doors to navigate getting to and from your room. The staff will help you with baggage.
We parked our car at the front of the hotel for our 2 day stay and found the Hop On Hop Off Tour Bus an easy 15/20 minute walk from the hotel. We used the 2 day Green Bus pass to navigate the highlights of the city. The Chop House restaurant, about a 10 minute walk away was recommended by the staff for dinner and it was excellent.
For a room this size in the city, with a king size bed, we feel we received value for our money.
