Delicious finger food served at a function we were attending. This included very tender and tasty salmon kebabs, lovely filo tarts and mini fish and chips served in cones. Staff friendly. Lovely reception area in the hotel with lots of seating.

The staff is very friendly and polite. However, if you have an internet deal, make sure upon arrival that they are on the same page as you and get your proofs ready. The bedrooms were spacious and well equipped, though a bit tired. But there again it seems this hotel was meant to be grounded at some point, then wasn't...

We needed a hotel that was within (lengthy) walking distance of the centre, at a few weeks notice, and this had a good reputation. Actually its a bit far from the centre on rainy nights, and the reputation is a tad overblown and tired. The primary function of the hotel seems to be the serving of tour groups; that night,...

Check in was a problem as we were given a twin room instead of double. We asked for a room with a fridge, and didn't get one so we rang reception for one. A small portable fridge was delivered which did not chill drinks at all. Room in need of repainting, broken hinge on cupboard door, stained bedsheets and carpet....

Blanket on bed was covered in stains, the light shades were all broken, some lights were broken, one of the lifts was broken which meant we had to wait a very long time on the 8th floor in sweltering heat for the lift. Apparently it has been broken for months and still has not been fixed. There were stains on...

I've been to the Ballsbridge for 3 conventions over the past 2 years. The hotel is quite nice (and very expensive -- that's why I've never slept here). However, the prices in its "eating places" are ridiculous, so I want to direct you to a hidden jewel. Walk down the street 2 long blocks along Pembroke -- past the lovely...

Hotel is showing its age, lift was out of service for the two days, steps were not a bad option. Sleeping was just fine, shower adjustments are always a challenge over there. Electronic key card, a plus, no real complaints Breakfast the standard

From looking at other reviews from May 2016 I see there is only only one lift working, well it's June now and it's still not working. No air conditioning in the rooms which were so hot u couldn't breathe and no fan in the bathroom to start. The room are very poor, stained furniture and holes in the lamp shades....

Stayed for a two night weekend deal. We had looked at the reviews before we came so there were no surprises apart from good ones. Modern hotel with a wow factor. Lovely comfortable rooms with a gorgeous garden area to walk around to the rear of the hotel. A wonderful time in Dublin I found this hotel easy to recommend.

So convenient to the Aviva Stadium. I was there for a business conference. Enjoyed dinner in the restaurant, the plentiful buffet breakfast and a really comfortable bed. There is a large car park but I would advise NOT to arrive too late in the evening.
