Excellent location, courteous staff !

The airport bus drops you right outside this hotel. We stayed just for one night. Couldn't fault it. Had afternoon tea, drinks, etc. Staff very attentive and polite. room was clean with Air Con. Had a good night sleep. had breakfast in the hotel in the morning. Yes, you can eat in Mcdonalds if you want less expensive. We had the breakfast and was quite happy with everything. Our thanks to the people of Dublin. We had a great time, and hope to see you all again soon ! ! !

Gresham dublin

Great location in center of city. Staff was very helpful/friendly. Only down side was the view out my window. I was on the back side of the hotel and the view was a grey brick wall. We were very near an alley vagrants hung out and they were very loud at night. Vagrants were not the hotels fault.......... I would stay there again!!

Stay out of Temple Bar area if you want a good I dish pub experience. That place is built for tourists....... Do go to Oneills though. That pub is amazing.

Perfect location and stunning hotel and rooms

Overall excellent Only quibble is the extortionately priced breakfast which was not included in our booking - 25 euros each is very steep.

Great location but Dated

Great Location, clean. Room dated, bed small. Bathroom not up to standards. Tub narrow with steep sloping sides, very narrow place to stand. I take showers so this was a drawback. Bed narrow and TV was a little tricky but for a place to sleep at night it was OK. Not a 4 star Hotel. maybe 3 stars. It could be 4 star with a little updating.

Ask about tipping, The servers make a better salary then in USA and do not expect the 15 - 18 % tip that American servers expect or demand.

Lovely experience- pricey tea.

Pricey tea- that's the only negative thing I can say about this hotel. Room was quiet, clean. Shower was hot. Beds were cozy. And it was very smooth checking in and out. No complaints.

Perfect Home-base for Exploring Dublin

We had a wonderful time in Dublin. The location of this hotel was a perfect jumping off point for exploration around the city. The standard double room was clean, with more than adequate space for two adults. And the staff was very friendly and helpful.
