Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin – Very Very Very Good Ho
This is a very good hotel that is let down by not paying attention to small detail. I’ll definitely stay again. The staffs are all polite and with smiles on their faces at all times.
Though not in central Dublin, its location is perfect for getting to the centre of Dublin by bus, taxi or even a brisk 20 minute walk.
I booked a room with double occupancy but was given such a room but with two comfortable beds joined together. I was immediately given a room with a double bed once I requested a change. Each room has a flat screen TV, en-suite power shower / bath with toilet and extra pillows, kettle and cups (Complementary tea / coffee, milk and sugar. There isn’t a fridge by default but one was provided on request (No mini bar which wasn’t a problem). TV channels were plentiful and all in English.
The free Wi-Fi is excellent everywhere in the hotel with my smartphone and PCs connecting without any problems. Rooms are all floors are accessible with two modern working lifts in use. Rooms are cleaned daily.
Breakfast is a combination of full English and continental – take your pick. I have to say one of the best in terms of taste and quantity. Breakfast selection of breads, variety of fruits, cheeses, scrambled egg, pancakes, sausages, yogurts, cereals, with tea, coffee or fruit juices (Orange, Grape Fruit and Apple).
Ballsbridge hotel is let down by not providing a fridge as standard and its placement in the room just spoils the look and feel.
