We were looking for a cheap airport hotel. This place is halfway between the airport and the city center, which are about 7 miles apart. The taxi driver was very surprised this was labeled an airport hotel; but it is pretty easily accessible (it was a 15 euro cab ride from the airport). There's also a bus stop practically right in front of the hotel, and it's a 1.60, 20-35 minute ride to the city center.
Ballymun is not the nicest area, but it's evident that there's a lot of work in progress to try to improve it. The hotel itself is in the nicest area of it, with a handy shopping center (including a supermarket and a Little Caesar's) right across the way. We didn't feel unsafe at all. Service was pretty good. Rooms were clean and comfortable, although there was no hairdryer and some minor fixes would be good for the room we stayed in, 409 (the bathroom light flickered and the toilet paper holder was hanging by one screw, causing the roll to fall off). Overall, it was amazing value for the price we paid (cheaper than a hostel!).
