“One night stay”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

We could not book a room for one night at our usual Travelodge in Pheonix Park, so opted for Ballymun, as we were arriving into Dublin AIrport. The Ballymun area is under rejuvenation, so the area looks a little run down and daunting but the hotel has secure underground free parking, with access directly from the car park to the reception area. The first room we were allocated was at the rear of the hotel with a small balcony, but unfortunately the lock on the balcony door did not have a key. We notified reception and the room was change to one at the front of the hotel, with an apology, as the room should not have been allocated.

The room at the front of the hotel was large and spacious and clean with very little noise heard from outside or from other rooms within the hotel, although the hotel seemed full with young people / groups. We ate in the METZO bar and lounge during the evening and the food was lovely, swift service and fairly reasonable price for Hotel food. Breakfast the next day was full Irish and plentiful.

All in all a good value for money hotel with easy access to the motorway system for the rest of Ireland.

We stayed in this hotel on a budget for a weekend in Dublin so wasn't expecting much but the hotel itself was lovely, clean and the staff were really helpful and friendly!
We ate in the hotel once, which was really nice.

Location is ok, there is a bustop opposite the hotel which has direct buses into Dublin which we used many times and just got a day pass.

The hotel is right next to an estate which to be honest isn't nice and we wouldn't walk outside the hotel at night but we never had any bad experiences!

All in all a lovely hotel and i would stay there again.

Dear xSunSeaSandx

Firstly thank you for taking the time to review our hotel we were delighted to see you enjoyed your stay with us,

I have passed on your comments to all the staff and they are delighted with the feed back.

In relation to the location as we are a city hotel I’m afraid we have to work with what we got and I can assure you that the location is very safe. The local authorities have removed the large apartment complex beside the hotel which will shortly be developed as a green land area. This we hope will help with the appearance.

We look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future.

Regards
Chris O Sullivan & Travelodge Team

The hotel that we usually book when we travel from Dublin Airport was fully booked for a conference so this one was new to us. As a wheelchair user we have to take what is available and for one night this did us fine. The meal in the restaurant was good value. We didn't have time to venture out into the area but it is certainly not the best that Dublin has to offer.
The hotel has an uderground car park but we were allowed in without first registering, just by pressing a button which allowed the gate to be opened. We nfelt safer taking ALL of our luggage up to the room, just for the one night

Dear Birding Traveller

Firstly thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, we were disappointed to see that you did not enjoy your stay.


In relation to parking we have now looked at this and are going to be introducing a new tag system that will only allow guest to enter the car park once they have checked in.

I can assure you the carpark is perfectly safe and we have very little issues with this.

We do hope you will stay with us again and see the improvements that we have made.

This place was not spectacular or horrible. When I travel back to this area I will not be booking here again, in the hopes that I will find a real value next time. The location odd, fairly far from the airport and in what felt like an business park. Our room was HUGE but poorly equipped, dirty and poorly maintained. It was a hotel that left us scratching our heads.....though not tragic....we won't be booking there again.

We stayed here the night prior to our flight.

Go see the Ring of Kerry and Port Rush. Port Rush and surrounding areas being my new favorite part of Ireland.

Dear JohnsEcho

Firstly thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, I was disappointed to read that you did not enjoy your stay with us.

I do understand that the location does not equal Ring of Kerry or Port Rush but as a city centre location we feel it is ideal for travelers looking to stay in the city at great value.

In relation to your comments on standards we are striving to improve these and will continue to do so in the future.

If you are ever in the area again please feel free to contact me and come and see where we have taken your comments on board.

This place was amazing, Get a room at either end of the hotel, they're twice the size of the rest of the rooms!
