Lansdowne Hotel Ballsbridge
Ranked #82 of 151 Hotels in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel in middle of November 2013. The bus service from airport brings you pretty close to the hotel & the same applies when you are going back. The hotel itself is a regular 3 star property with basic facilities. The room I got was pretty small with a basic bathroom. The front desk staff was very helpful & polite. The location of the hotel is not in the heart of the city but at the same time its not all that far & can be reached by taxi or an extended walk. But the major highlight was the price. Even though I had booked this place a few days before my travel, there was no other hotel in the vicinity that could beat its price.

My Friend & I stayed in this hotel to have a Christmas catch up together & do a little bit of shopping! The hotel itself is a very ordinary but comfortable place to stay. Rooms were cosy & snug. What takes this hotel above a lot of it's competitors is the Staff! From the very friendly people on reception to the very charming Brendan in the bar & to Ann Marie managing the delicious breakfast's - what amazing staff that remember you by name after 5 minutes & want to advise you of places of interest & things to do! I certainly want to return to this hotel as we were made to feel so welcome. Just one small negative, whilst I found the value with regard to staying in this hotel (price wise) excellent, I thought bar prices were very high! Thank You xx

I stayed in the Lansdowne in October, using it as a base for the Dublin City Marathon. I was told by the friendly chap at Reception that almost everyone staying in the hotel was there for the same reason. The hotel is in a prime location for this purpose; less than 15 minutes walk from the Marathon Expo in Ballsbridge and the Start in the Merrion square area in the opposite direction.
The hotel doesn't boast to be 5 star which is fair enough. Rooms were perfectly fine, a bit on the small side, but spotless. Breakfast was delicious, served by genuinely friendly staff. The bar wasn't open on weekends which was a bit odd; however there are plenty of decent bars (Waterloo and Searsons to name a couple) very nearby. Stephens Green and the city centre is also within walking distance. At €100.00 a night it was a bit pricey, but I suppose that's the market rate for it's location. All in all, I would recommend the hotel, particularly on Dublin City Marathon weekend.

My wife and recently had a five night stay at the Lansdowne and considered it good value for money with kind and considerate staff who show a genuine pleasure in their dealing with guests.
Breakfast was good with very cheerful service which set us up for the day.
Our double room towards the rear of the hotel was quiet, clean and warm and the only negative comment I would make is the room was very small but this is a minor point considering the fine location.

Very friendly and efficient staff. We had a double bed and a large single bed in our room. The room was quite small but nicely decorated and did the job for our one night stay as we were going to a concert in the 02. It is about 5 or 10 mins depending on traffic from the hotel to the 02 so its in a great location. We had dinner in the bar which was delicious and the next morning we had breakfast in the dining room which was lovely with plenty of choices.
