Burlington Hotel Review

If you want to meet the Ballsbridge locals, then spend a night at the Burlington. The days when Irish and international celebrities partied the nights away here might be gone, but "the Burlo" is still a focal point for social events and gatherings on the southside. In fact Ireland's largest hotel is one of those recent landmarks—note the 1972 glass-and-concrete facade—where nearly every Irish person seems to have spent at least one night (or so they claim). The hotel's impersonal exterior is not very inviting, but inside refurbished public spaces use comfy leather sofas and wooden floors and trimmings to give it a more classy, cool look. The real treat is the generous-size guest rooms, furnished in modern minimalist style, with neutral tones and large picture windows. The Bellini Bar goes for a very chic cocktail-lounge look.

    Clean and accomodating

    We arrived from an early morning flight and were delighted to find that they already had our room ready for us well ahead of check in time. The room was sparsely decorated but clean. The breakfast buffet was very good; especially the fruit selection. The concierge staff were very helpful and the registration staff were very friendly.
