Stayed here as a group of guys celebrating a birthday. The hotel is situated close to the stadium and a few shops and bars. We arrived at 11am in time to watch the football game which started at 12.30. We were told that the bar downstairs didn't show football only rugby ! I assume if they show the rugby that they have sky sports And could have out it on for us. We were then told we should head into the city centre. Now there were 8 of us looking food and drink. Maybe they don't need the money. We walked about 500 yards to the ballsbridge hotel who couldn't have been more accommodating. On returning to the hotel at tea time some of us had something to eat downstairs in The Den something I wouldn't recommend. Not many chips in " the basket of chips" disgraceful and the gentleman who served really had no idea about hospitality. The rooms were adequate but a little dated howevever they were clean. Went down for breakfast which wasn't included in our booking and this is where we found genuine friendliness. The lady who was looking after breakfast was excellent. Friendly, chatty and quick and the only reason any of us would return to this hotel.

Stayed two nights - was really hoping for the Irish hospitality I'd grown to love, and hoped for quaintness. Unfortunately I was left disappointed. The overall service and the communications were lacking. The hotel could benefit from having a clearer check in, warmer hospitality, and details should be provided regarding the exact reservation and services offered. - Room was very clean but small and out dated. No closet, small rack to set one suitcase on, barely room for more than one person. Just a water boiler for tea on a tiny shelf above the desk. No coffee. -The lights in my bathroom didn't work when I arrived. When I notified the front desk I was told, "It's because you didn't use your key card to activate the lights in the room". Yes I did, and I verified the rest of the lights in the room worked. They checked it out and it turns out the switch plate to the bathroom was broken. For the rest of my stay it only worked about 1 out of 3 times that you tried to turn it on. - I booked this hotel specifically for the option of the cute pub downstairs. I knew I would be tired after a very long business trip, and just wanted a quick pint and bite and then rest. I was not told at check in that there was a big Irish House Party the night I arrived, nor that I should make other plans. At check in I was just told that they have these parties, I was given a flyer, and I had the option to book ahead if I wanted to attend. I was told that there was further information in my room. There was no information in my room. So, I was not really interested in the event so I left it at that and went downstairs to grab a pint and have dinner. Unfortunately, however, I quickly found out bus loads of tourists were flowing into the pub for said "house party" and I was quickly a third wheel who had to find other options elsewhere. I was not pleased as I'd booked my hotel reservation well in advance with hopes of a quiet night in. - I came back to the hotel after getting dinner elsewhere, only to find I was locked out of the front door. When I knocked for someone to let me in, I quickly apologized and asked when do they close the inn or lock the door? The response was, "Never" and I was left standing there utterly confused. Maybe I should have rephrased my question? Why didn't reception tell me this detail at check in? It would have saved some uncomfortable panic when I couldn't get in that night. - In the morning I asked for coffee downstairs. I was told breakfast is not included in my reservation, and I could pay 7 Euro to partake. I didn't need a hot breakfast, just coffee. I have honestly never been to a hotel anywhere in the world that didn't include coffee in the morning. Even when it's not in the room itself, usually it is in the lobby. I was embarrassed by this exchange, and had to gather my belongings and go down the street to find coffee on my own. For a second time in 12 hours, I had to leave the hotel to find other options. Several times throughout my stay I felt like I was imposing on them, I was embarrassed, and even though I was a paying customer, I was not valued. This hotel may be considered budget, but it's not low cost. I chose it for what I had thought to be it's quaintness. Yet I felt like the hotel did not care if I was there or not, and they have lost sight of true hospitality. It's the little things, warm coffee, smiles, generosity, that really make or break an experience for a traveler. The only warmth I received was at checkout, and it was when I was posed a question about my experience in Dublin, not about my experience at the hotel. Landsdowne would benefit from a complete upgrade and service overhaul. I can confidently say I won't be back.

Fantastic Irish stew-best I have tasted in the whole of Ireland ! The chocolate brownie and ice cream was delicious! The Irish show at the hotel was awesome-great Irish music and dancing! I thoroughly recommend this wonderful Irish House Party!

If you arrive by air get the 702 to The Ballsbridge Hotel 8.50 euros single. Cross over the road and to your right is Pembroke Road. About 7 minutes later you come to the delightful Lansdowne Hotel. I had to prep for a meeting so couldn't make it to the Irish House Party Band which is on apparently most evenings and everyone was talking about the following morning, saying how good it was. Had an evening meal in the bar which was really friendly and a nice choice of food. I wish I had been more adventurous and had the prawns/noodle dish but I decided on the retro scampi in a basket and it really hit the spot. I was on business but I would stay here on holiday because it has character and the staff were so lovely. Aircoach back to the airport is on the opposite site of The Ballbridge Hotel, just get to the end of Pembroke road, turn right and keep walking until the first bus stop. It doesn't say anything about the air coach and if you see it just wave and flag it down.

Booked approximately 3 weeks in advance of travel. Great location with easy walking distance to St Stephens Green, city centre and the Aviva Stadium. Down for a concert at the National Stadium, only 3 miles away. Room was spacious with a very comfortable bed. Den Bar was cosy with quality food. Lovely breakfast at the hotel. Staff were very friendly, happy to chat and provide travel information. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone.

Located a bit outside of all the hustle and bustle of the downtown area you can still easily access downtown Dublin. Our room was very warm during our stay and we had to leave the window (with no screen) open as much as we could. The beds were a bit stiff, but I was ok with that. My wife not as much so. The staff was friendly and overall the facilities were fine.

We recently staid at The Lansdowne Hotel to which we were greeted in a friendly manner by the receptionists. Despite the outdated interior of the building and the room being quite small, the place was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom! *Top points on hygiene*. To our dismay though there was limited parking available to which we did not know about and we had to drive down the block to try and find parking spaces until the morning. We ventured down into the Den Bar which was lovely and cozy and the bar staff were so helpful and friendly.

Good and decent hotel close to city centre. Parking (free) just in front of the hotel. Good reception entrance (small stairs). The way to the room was not that great but that is what you often see in hotels of this age and build type. The room itself was spacious and clean. There is a possibility to create a bigger family room with the door that was closed now. The place houses a pub below the hotel which is quite big and nicely decorated. Wi-Fi is free and works very well throughout the building. Breakfast was ok, the buffet was rather small but you could order any hot breakfast item separately. Coffee (brewed) was served and all was good and very tasty. There was no toaster but they toasted on order Wide choice of cereals and fruits including juices. All hot breakfast items did not come with additional charge. We ordered extra toast, scrambled egg/bacon and a poached egg. We enjoyed our stay and after a smooth check-out we continued our journey.

Location of this hotel is excellent, I called the day prior to arriving to see if I could check in before 2pm to be flatly told No! Hoovering outside my room at 2.30am, No hot water in the morning and TV stations were not clear! There is no lift on the premises and I was not offered any assistance with my luggage when my room was on the first floor

The Landsdowne hotel is a good place to stay in Dublin. The hotel is very nice, with a small bar and a restaraunt. The rooms are quiet and clean, the position is excellent. Last but not least, I found the staff very kind and professional, in particular one of the receptionist, Simone; she was really supportive, helping me in solve a problem with my mobile...really appreciate!
