over priced and nothing special about this hotel

Theatre break

The rooms were comfortable and clean. However they are a bit on the small side - could have had the bathrooms a bit smaller and extend the size of rooms. . At least the ones we were in - they were at the back and over some kind of generator which was constantly humming... We did not have breakfast there. Also there was a €15 charge for one night in the car park. A bit steep for a resident staying just overnight. Overall it was a nice hotel but not the classy hotel it once was.

great 4-star hotel

I had a really good time at the Gresham! The room was comfortable, though a bit small. The view out on the street was a bit underwhelming and the room was on the hot & stuffy side, even though the thermostat said 14C. The service was great, though, and the location was pretty much perfect, right near the town center. Overall, pretty happy!

Faded Past

My wife wanted to stay at the Gresham eversince she was a small girl. Well was she ever disappointed. The lobby area may be impressive, but the room accomodations are something else. Our room had the distinction of facing a wall........great view!! My wife got a panic attack in the night and tried to open a bathroom window with no luck. The pillows on the bed were the worst ever...like sleeping on rocks!! This hotel needs a major makeover.

Very good hotel

A very good hotel in particularly good location. Very pleasing open areas on ground floor. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Bedroom (on 5th floor overlooking O'Connell Street) good size and comfortable with pleasant bathroom. Brasserie restaurant a bit disappointing - staff attentive but food rather bland. Hotel as booked with e-bookers was very good value but breakfast expensive.
