Lansdowne Hotel Ballsbridge
Ranked #79 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 June 2013

This hotel surprised me because so many of my recent hotel experiences have been fairly 'meh'. But I was fortunate to get a good rate on this room (€65) and the establishment is just a little outside the city centre so it's well away from the evening madness that seems to grip certain parts of Dublin city centre at night (mainly a result of too much drinking). The room itself was big(!), clean and with a massive double bed which was pretty comfy. The bathroom too was big with a good shower and my room was a quiet one, facing away from the main road.
Breakfast wasn't included but you can buy a continental breakfast for €6.50 and pay more if you want a 'proper' cooked breakfast.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and there is free internet access at reception if you need to go online but haven't brought your laptop.
The Lansdowne Hotel is roughly 15 minutes walk from St. Stephen's Green - add another 7 or 8 to get to Trinity College. There are buses on that route from the centre and the Airbus can drop you within 10 minutes' walk of the hotel too.
I'd definitely go back (if I can get a similar bargain price).

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the main road - I can recommend room 23!

Booked here last minute while on business in Dublin because of price and it was walking distance to the city centre. Room was expected for the price; a little dated but it was perfectly clean, had good bed, and a really nice shower.

Staff are this hotels best asset, especially the lady on breakfast - she was lovely. Plus the breakfast was good. Also, the bar man the night I was there was very friendly and accommodating.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of June 2013 and would be happy to recommend to others. Nice location in Ballsbridge area of town, perfect for where we needed to be. Got the room for a great price on Booking.com and room was fine, not the biggest hotel room ever but it was perfectly clean and ideal for what we needed. The majority of staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful with the exception of the night guy who checked us in on arrival, not the friendliest welcome ever and he didn't tell us anything about breakfast but it didn't spoil our experience and we wouldn't hesitate in going back again.

This looks & feels like the main hotel of any small Irish town, although it's in Dublin 4.
An old building, staff keen to please, a personal welcome from the barman, Friday Fiver lunch deal, evening specials for ten euro, they know their market of the value traveller.
Rooms just big enough, comfortable, reasonable breakfast for the traditional meat-eater.
Lots of rugby memorabilia. Free wifi.

I normally stay right in the centre of town for work trips from London but my usual hotel was fully booked, so I stayed here. I was slightly worried because the room rate looked so very reasonable given the location in D4. It was a really good stay but not perfect. the good things: a very friendly welcome form the receptionist Anne, who has been there for 22 years. it makes a real differnce to be made so welcome. Otherwise I might have thought far less of the stay. The locatin is also great for the dente of toiwn. whilst not right in the middel, its a leisurley 20 minute stroll along Baggott St to St Stephen's Green, the National Museum, the Dail etc. It's also ten minutes walk form the Aviva Stadium.

The rooms and common areas were spotless. We didn't use the bar or restaurant, even for breakfast so we can't comment on the food or bar.
The receptionist had noted my request for a quiet room so gave me 57, atthe end of the corridor on the top floor, away from the street, the stairs and the bar area.

What we didn't particularly like: despite our room being in a newer extention - albeit some years old, it looks a little dated. The floorboards creaked a bit as did the water and heating pipes when the heating turned off at midnight. The rooms have more of a guesthouse than hotel feel to them.

Overall, I would recommend the hotel as a place to stay. its clearly a well-run, family-owned business. A great location and great value for money given its location. Its by no means luxurious but it is comfortable and friendly.

Room Tip: the hotel did best to book me into a quiet room, so they do read your requests upon booking.

Needed to find a place to stay just one night in Dublin at the last minute. This hotel was available, and so I booked. It is fairly clean, although the cleaners used leave such a strong after scent that it was somewhat overwhelming. It is a few block walk from St. Stephen's Green, and in a different side of Dublin than I usually stay. It was safe walking around during the day and at night. I found the hotel staff to be friendly and helpful. All in all, it was fine. It would't be on the top of my hotel list but it certainly was decent for the price and location.

Room Tip: No elevator, so be warned if you're on the top floor. Also, it's super close to the stadium...

This was by far the worst place we have stayed for years. The hotel staff was the least friendly of anywhere in Ireland. The room was rundown,the toilet ran non stop and the bath water could not be turned totally off. This was also the only place we visited that charged for wifi. On a good note the bar was good and staff was friendly. The surrounding area was clean with many pubs and coffee shops, all that gave you free wifi.
