Excellent hotel - only downside is lack of tea and coffee in the rooms. Otherwise great staff, great rooms and really comfortable beds. Ideal location for the Aviva stadium and 20 minute walk to central Dublin (Taxi 8 to 10 Euro).
It's a good hotel, not amazing but didn't pay much so not complaining. Booked a twin room but was given a double - no problem because we were swapped but a busier weekend and it might have been trickier.
Hot shower, comfy beds, clean room and helpful staff. About 25 min walk from city centre.
Nice Hotel, rooms are a bit tired and beds were quite small. Public areas are very nice. Plenty of secure parking available which is good but it will cost €12.50 per day. The hotel building its self is beautiful, a lovely old building. Breakfast was very good, lots of options and very tasty.
This hotel was about a ten minute walk to St. Stephan's Green and Grafton Street so it was a great location. It was right across from a small canal filled with swans it was beautiful. The hotel was clean and the staff were great. The view left a little to be desired as we faced the back of the building and the garbage bins. Other than that it was a great stay.
Loved the Hampton Hotel. The hotel accommodates all your requests, the reception desk is always pleasant. The room are comfortable with amazing bathrooms, radiant heated floors. The restaurant in the hotel serves delicious food and the bar is well equipped. I would definitely return to the Hampton Hotel in the future.
Because of the disruption caused by Fog and 30,000 people attending the the Web summit in Dublin, my flight 24 hours earlier had been cancelled and , in error, my hotel booking had also been cancelled by Expedia . I arrived late and was told I had no booking despite Expedia telling me that afternoon that it had been booked and confirmed. I was tired and fed up . The hotel owner couldnt have been kinder or more helpful. Despite being full he set about sorting me out a very comfortable room which I only learned the next morning was his own . I was offered tea and a sandwich before bed and the next morning the Breakfast lived up to its reviews Lovely home made Irish bread and jams . Full Irish Breakfast and the warmest of welcomes in a lovely old world setting . It certainly renewed my faith in human nature after one of the worst travel experiences Ive had. Old school hospitality is alive and thriving at Aberdeen Lodge.
"Great location and building - where are the staff?"
Have not stayed here since the first day Intercontinental took over, it is a great place to stay but a few problems - first one - Expedia did not inform the hotel we wanted beds for the kids so up to the room and had to go back down to reception again to have beds made up ........ was done fairly promptly ........second one - last time parking was free - this time 11 euro per night - would prefer this was included ....... no room in car park second night so had to valet park - they wanted to charge extra but I had no alternative - it was quickly resolved but they did still charge - so after paying nearly 800 euro for one room for 2 nights including breakfast they wanted another 22 euro - third problem and really the biggest problem - there was close to mutiny on Sunday morning around 10:30 - we had to wait 20 mins to be seated for breakfast but while I was there they ran out of plates for cereal, plates for breakfast, all bread, bacon. sausages and many more less important items - they were replaced but at no time during our breakfast did they have everything listed above - some people took it worse than us - tables were not cleared, I just cleared the plates myself, the staff are pleasant and really helpful - there just are not enough of them! - I will come back - it is so handy when Ulster play Leinster next door but I think they will struggle to keep the 5 stars and at the moment they probably are just not deserving of them - I am chilled and it did not ruin my stay ....
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.
