1 nights stay in January

Posted 24-Jan-2015
Pros: Staff were friendly and the room was fine.
Cons: Hard to improve given the size of the hotel but there was a lack of atmosphere and no obvious area for relaxing or spending time (other than the bar).
Location: The location is excellent - not walking distance to town but only a short bus ride away.
The hotel was fine in most respects. Friendly staff and decent enough room. However the overall feel was rather characterless and dull. The bar area was chilly and somewhat lacking in atmosphere. I didn't eat dinner at the hotel because the food looked uninspiring. Breakfast was only okay.

Conveniently located, nicely decorated...

Posted 06-Jan-2015
Pros: Nicely decorated rooms and common spaces, an excellent and friendly staff and a good location in Dublin (the old Jury's).
Cons: You know, for what you pay to stay here, wifi ought to be free and not just 20 minutes worth of wifi a day. Free, no-cost, 24x7.
Location: Central Dublin is a 20 min. walk away. There are great restaurants very close to the hotel.
I had read mixed reviews of the Ballsbridge Hotel (mostly good, but a few criticisms) on Google. So we decided to book a stay there and see for ourselves. What I found was a beautifully decorated hotel, with spacious rooms and very nice amenities (restaurants/bars, etc.). The hotel is conveniently located and there are always taxis available for people not wanting to use the DART or their own shoe leather. This is a place where I would definitely stay again - and I don't say that about every hotel I visit.

Great Price

Posted 18-Dec-2014
Pros: Cosiness, facilities, location and price.
Cons: bathrooms and more than two milk cartons in the room!
Location: ok for the 02 arena, taxi not too pricy 10 euro, 23 to the airport.
The main areas of the hotel are great, the woodwork in the rooms and the bathroom a little in need of upgrade. Great for the price, good bar within the hotel with reasonable mean choice, prices ok. Staff were helpful and it was quiet as in not a lot of noise in the hallways at night (rare for a conference centre!)

Nice hotel near central Dublin, great location.

Posted 09-Dec-2014
Pros: Spacious rooms and near to Dublin's major attractions.
Cons: Slightly bigger TV in room and speedier service in the restaurant/bar.
Location: Aviva stadium near by, which offers a great tour. Major Dublin attractions such as the Guinness Storehouse, Dublin zoo, Stephen's green, Phoenix Park.
Overall a pleasant stay. Nice spacious room, great bathrooms, tea making facilities and good service. Only criticism was that the speed of service in the bar/restaurant was a bit slow. However, food and drinks good. The hotel itself is in a lovely part of Dublin, surrounded by Georgian style properties. The walk into town takes about twenty minutes and is easily done by foot. Highly recommend the hotel, it was very pleasant, had nice facilities (although no swimming pool/gym but this is not a problem as they offer reduced priced gym facilities near by) and was good value for money.
