Luxury break for 2, Well Almost !

This is a smart looking hotel,set back from the main road so not easy to find if you don't know the area.The airport bus drops you very close , the train station is close as is the taxi rank and bus stop.To save money we chose to walk into the city centre but it is quite a long way. Enjoyed the meal we had in the restaurant and they kindly allowed my partner to pick from the bar menu. The only dissatisfaction really was the room itself, the bed and pillows were very hard, the air con did not work.The tea and coffee was not very generous ,there were no complimentary tissues and we had two calls from maintenance men wanting to unblock the sink and fix the window while we were still in the room. For a four star Hotel a few more little touches of luxury would not go amiss.

St Patrick's day getaway

The hotel is prime placement but the rooms themselves are subpar from the rest of the place. Still a great deal. Being in the center right by the train made it very easy to downtown and very cheap at that.

Needs renovation

wifi is not free, bathroom old and needs renovation, no mini bar in the room, old type of tv and only few channels are on, no sleepers and bath robs, towels are too bloody old and smell awful. I believe we paid too much for what was offered. very disappointed.

Luxury stay in Dublin

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the D4Berkeley in October 2011 and the experience was just great. The hotel is just as classy and upscale as I remember it many years ago, but has been updated to reflect today's taste. We had a junior suite and it provided us with room to relax in the free time we had. The restaurant also was very fine and service and food was excellent. We will visit again whenever we can.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Downtown Dublin at Grafton Street with all that it has to offer is less than 5 minutes drive away, or 15 minutes walk. So we loved the hotel location.

What an Awful Experience

Location was far, far, far from downtown (since when is 35-40 minutes a "short stroll"?). I believe the web site is misleading in that regard. The hotel's staff was incompetent and unfriendly, checking us into an occupied room the moment we arrived and giving us inaccurate information about the fitness facility every time we inquired. We called down to arrange for fitness center passes, but they were apparently with a manager in another building and the manager never came. We ended up paying full price rather that waste precious vacation time waiting for the hotel manager. The TV in our room had no sound. The elevator was out of order one day, the business center the next. (And of course no one would even consider helping us check in for our flight, despite the fact that the business center computers didn't work.) This hotel was the worst part of our trip and soured us on the entire city.
