Great location

You can't beat the location, right on O'Connell Street. Food is good in the restaurants. The staff are very nice and friendly. The hotel room was clean, but the hotel is rather shabby. It's an old place and has been well-used. The mattresses are REALLY bad - certainly not good enough for a 4-star hotel. Our room had two beds, whicih I had requested. One was a single and the other a double. The double bed mattress was totally worn out - one side sagged so much that I rolled downhill from the other side! It made me glad I had reserved a two-bedded room, because if my husband had been in the same bed with me, it would have been impossible.

Central location good

This hotel was ok for the price but we were disappointed that breakfast wasn't included as it was expensive. There was poor hot water supply to our room (important as it was freezing when we stayed) and on the final morning we had no hot water at all and had to take a cold shower - brrr! There was a draught from an air vent over the windows which allowed a very cold wind to cool the room - probably ok when the weather's warmer but a pain at 3-degrees centigrade.

The hotel is right by the central taxi rank - as all the taxis are good value, this is very useful, especially if the weather is bad.

Amazing!

Truly a 4-start hotel with very helpful staff. I was pleasantly surprise with the size of the room and the bathroom. It also has an amazing location in O’ Connell St., walking distance from the nightlife in Temple Bar but “far” and quiet enough when you want to relax and sleep. I would definitely stay there again if I ever go back to Dublin.

If traveling by air book the Air Link from Dublin airport to the hotel. Only 7 euros and the bus stop is right in front of the hotel..seriously! Only 10 steps from the door.

Weekend in Dublin

On arrival, the room was cold: heating not working; trouser press not working. We were supplied with an oil filled radiator which was inadequate to heat a large room with a high ceiling. We were offered an upgrade but we accepted another room, with one complimentary breakfast. The TV in that room was 'temperamental' despite the best efforts of the staff: after 4-5 attempts to make it work, it still wasn't working on the morning we checked out!

Great time in Dublin

Great time at the Gresham on our honeymoon. The hotel was lovely, the staff very helpful, and walking distance to everything. Close to shopping food and drink. Temple Bar is a 10 minute walk and bus from the airport drops you right next to the hotel for 6 Euro. The pub next door had wonderful live music. The breakfast is a little pricey at 20 Euro. Overall a great stay. Would definitely stay again and suggest to friends.

Small, uncomfortable room, overpriced

The room was very small and bare. The staff was incredibly unhelpful. The location is centric, but very noisy. Grossly overpriced. I would never go back there.

Excellent Hotel

Great staff, friendly,helpful. If anything needed to be better, it would be the air flow on the fifth floor room we stayed, room was very warm even without the heat on and window opened.

best possible location

The aircoach from Dublin airport stops in front of the hotel, and the big green tour buses (if you're so inclined) start from right around the corner. Plenty of restaurants and shops can be found within a couple blocks, and the place is walking distance from the city center, Temple Bar etc. With all that activity you'd think that it'd be noisy, but our room was quiet, spacious and clean. Can't comment on the in-hotel eateries as we didn't bother.
