I have been here now a couple of times...and on both occasions I have enjoyed my stay. The staff are friendly & helpful..the rooms are very good. The right size enabling me to work & relax without feeling crushed & having to squeeze by the bed.
The bar is a bit quite in the evenings but the hotel is so close to the rest of Ballsbridge that it is more a place to relax at the end of the evening.
All in all very good & would recommend to business & people staying in Dublin on holiday..
On arrival at the hotel the reception is on the 2nd floor we given our room keycards and went to the room which was on the ground floor but it seemed as though we going into the cellar down a staircase, no lift, had to carry suitcases. The room although it had good facilities was quite small (would suit 1 person) we asked at reception if there was another room which they found on the 3rd floor, with lift access, arrived at the room excellent space as we had been use to on our tour of Ireland( 4 other hotels) just getting settled when the door came open, no knock, and a member of staff entered snatched up 2 bottles of water and the 2 towelling robes from the wardrobe and said we could not have these items as it was a premium room. These items were seen in the smaller room so believe this to be a management decision We just looked at each other and shrugged. Did wonder if first room offered was because we had paid before arrival

Dublin's friendliest 3 Star*** Hotel. For over 50 years customers have returned time and again to experience the warm and …More
Friendly,helpful staff, nothing too much trouble. Personally I would like tea/ coffee facilities in room, but complimentary tea arrived via room service very quickly with delicious home baked cookies! Breakfast menu was simple& food excellent , service friendly & efficient. Unfortunately the floor of the room above creaked when the occupants moved, around 6 am & as late as 10/11pm. This was irritating . Also found the policy of leaving the key & having to ring the doorbell every time we popped out a bit annoying as well. However we would be happy to stay again!
We stayed here because we wanted a little distance from the scene of Temple Bar and Grafton Street. Our room was very nice, quiet and well appointed. We arrived early after a red eye flight from New York and they were able to get us into the room by about 10 am. That alone would have given them a 5 star review. Breakfast is excellent, but 13.50 euro extra, so if you are planning to have a nice Irish breakfast each day, buy it when you book.
Everything about this hotel is modern and comfortable. Great reception space with lounge chairs and a good area for meeting up and having a coffee/drink. The staff were very friendly, and I loved my warm cookie on arrival! The bedroom was very quiet (even though I had the window open all night) and had every convenience I would have wanted.
Everything looked fresh, clean, tidy and contemporary.
Breakfast in the morning was in a lovely large room, and there was plenty of choice of fruit, cereals, breads, and hot breakfast options - all very well stocked and kept clean and tidy.
I was here on business, but there were plenty of holiday couples and families as well. I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely book this hotel again.
Leafy Ballsbridge is a quiet and exclusive residential area, a 20-30 minute walk into town (served by frequent buses). The Grand Canal flows through it, and while much of this waterway is less than grand, there is a pleasant stretch near the Richmond Street bridge with canal-side pubs. George Bernard Shaw’s birthplace is a popular neighbouring attraction.
