Accommodations were good, except for the fact that there was no toiletries (not even soap to wash my hands) thank goodness I had some with me. No room service menu, or breakfast order form. Even the phone had no directory. Shuttle runs every 15 mins to airport. Would not use again.

Too far from city center and staff seemed annoyed to be asked to check us in. Additionally, had to literally say "may we order a drink here?" after sitting at the bar being ignored for 5 minutes. Staff completely unhelpful in how to get to city center or shopping/attractions areas as well. Only exception was wonderful, friendly server in café... More

New name over the door, but the same great service and hotel. Have been staying with Bewleys for many many years on a regular basis. Happy to say things are running as well as ever with the new management.

Grubby hotel, lovely looking on the outside but very shabby and dirty inside.reception staff totally disinterested and poorly trained. Level of noise music wise totally unacceptable until 1.30 am, and no breakfast served til after 8 am the following day. What use is that when you have to leave by 8. Big hotel should start service 7 the latest.Could be... More

We checked-in on July 2nd and checked-out on July 5th to join a local tour to see Ireland. The hotel was arranged/recommended by that travel agent. The hotel location is not convenient for tourists at all. The most irresponsible arrangement was that hotel accepted a wedding reception and disco on July 4th in a hall right next to the guest...

Stayed here for one night! It is a nice hotel, lovely old building. The rooms are spacious and spotless with everything you need. The only issues I had is the room was a bit stuffy and couldn't open the windows wide enough to let enough air in. The other issue is the hairdryer, useless! Staff were lovely really helpful and...

We stayed here for a couple of nights at the start of June. Didn't spend too much time in the hotel but the room was spacious compared to most hotels at the same price. Breakfast was delicious and quite reasonably priced if I remember correctly. It had everything, including a machine that made freshly done pancakes. Staff were friendly and... More

Formerly Bewleys, the Ballsbridge location makes it a handy place for visiting the city, you simply jump on a frequent bus service outside the door. There is ample parking (underground) at an extra charge, rooms clean and well equipped. An extremely busy hotel, the only downside was the quality of the Irish breakfast ingredients which could be improved - quantity... More
