They moved us to another room with a better view upon our request but all rooms small and beds were quite uncomfortable. All in all a clean and safe hotel ! We took day tours and took public transportation - cheap !!

No A/C, poor service

We happened to stay here during warm weather. The room was very very hot and there was no air conditioning. We called 3x before we got a fan. Our room looked out to another building so there was no air circulation through the windows. The towel heater would not turn off. We called several times, but noone showed up to fix it. There were no wash cloths. the blow dryer did not work. The in room coffee was instant... Would not go back.

Great Location...but...

Gave 2 seniors a room down a long hallway that was furthest from the elevators. The bed was extremely hard, uncomfortable and small (only full not queen) with pillows that were flat as a pancake. Every morning noisy birds outside our window would wake us up at the crack of dawn. BUT....the hotel IS in a great location.

Staff were very friendly. The hotel was very clean, had a nice bar and seating area for drinks, and the location of the hotel is absolutely perfect. Your pretty much close to everything you would want to do! Also Muhammad Ali stayed there!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Right outside the hotel you can catch one of the Dublin tour buses - it takes you to pretty much everywhere you want to go and you can use the same ticket the next day - saves on taxi fares :-)

Great location and easy access

Had a great first time visit to Dublin. The Gresham was a really good location for getting anywhere around the City. We walked miles - to the Guinness store and also to Kilmainham Jail. It was all easily accesible from the hotel.

Good Location, not the friendliest of staff

This hotel is in a great location and easy to get to from the airport. It is literally the first stop when taking the 10 minute, 7 euro Aircoach bus from the airport. Don't bother taking a cab. We arrived earlier than expected and were able to check in immediately which was great! The folks at the front desk were not very friendly and when there were lines, they did not acknowledge anyone in line, or say much to folks waiting (even if one of the staff members was not with another guest) There were three of us so the room was spacious enough to include an extra bed, or cot for a 3rd person. The bedrooms here only had either 1. two twin beds, or 2. a double bed. Not very good for a party of three. When we asked for a cot, they brought a Pack n' Play (Baby crib). Hilarious. When we asked for an adult folding bed, they said they did not have these and if we wanted to have the 3rd person stay it was an extra 50 euro a night and the gentlemen we spoke with was not friendly about this. Aside from that, the location and ground floor bar/restaurant are what sold this place. It is close to all the attractions on one of Dublin's main thoroughfares.

Nightlife tip: In Hotel

The lounge in the hotel is the perfect place to wind down the night. Sit in the cozy couches and enjoy a nightcap just steps from your room. There is also a pub right next door if you want to go somewhere more casual and tavern-esque.

Great time in Dublin

We stayed for five nights. Location was great. This was our second stay at the Gresham in six months. We must have gotten an upgrade during this stay as our bed was more comfortable. You could open the window in the room which was welcome as i enjoy the fresh air. Our bathroom had a separate tub and shower. I NEVER take a tub bath in a hotel but the tub was so clean and inviting I jumped in and soaked away the international flight. We had high tea one afternoon and it was great, almost too much food. Drinks at the bar were spendy but the bar was nice. Staff was very nice. Anna, in housekeeping was very helpful and located an ice bucket for us. Helped us with extra towels, etc. She's a good ambassador for the Gresham. Will stay again. See you next year.

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.

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!
