I choose this hotel after reading the revoiews on here and yes they are correct. The area is run down there is a social security office and job centre and gangs of people around the common and shopping centre which is boarded up.
We booked this hotel with last minute who actually gave a cheaper rate than travelodge direct. The hotel is the old Ballymun Plaza and is all new and sparkly after the takeover. The room was modern immactulate and had a lovely flatscreen tv with freeview, hairdryer, trouser press tea coffee towels soap etc much better than expected, ask for a quiet room as it in on the main room in the ghetto of ballymun, with famous of the famous ballymun flats 'google it!!' he area didnt put us off although there was burnt out blocks of flats very near and i wouldnt recommend it for singel travellers or girls on there own. The buses are great and frequent but the bus stops far apart it was a 15 min trip into town costing 1.50 euro each way. There is a takeaway, cafe for breakfast tesco and off licence just outside the hotel which was handy the cafe in travelodge seemed expensive so we didnt use it. The hotel also had vending machines which was handy.
Would stay here again despite location the price was right for us! There was even wild horses tied up near the hotel ??? i couldnt believe the cruelty and 'teenage chavs' riding them bare back through ballymun on the sunday morning! There was also strays dogs in ballymun :( and quite a lot of beggars in the city :(
