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.

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.

The Gresham- well faded glory

Lobby is really nice, so had high hopes. Alas, they were dashed. Room was very small, with the walls and doors showing their age- bulging plaster patches, a door jamb that looked like a SWAT team had given it some love. IKEA-quality wardrobe and desk. TV remote didn't work properly (programming problem with the TV, not a battery issue). Water took forever to get hot in both the sink and shower. We were well acquainted with all our neighbor's bathroom habits by the end of the night. Bed was hard as a rock, and squeaky to boot. AC didn't work. Overall, not worth the price for the standard room. An upgraded one, maybe, but then for that price you can get the super-deluxe at several other locations.

Temple Bar is lively, popular, and packed. Of course, worth seeing, but go off the beaten path for truly good times.

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.

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 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.

Quick Trip to Ireland

The hotel is upgrading some rooms and not others. I was in 2 seperate rooms during my trip. One was upgraded and the other wasn't. The upgraded one was much nicer and more acceptible. My shower in the orig room as not really working properly and the beds were not that comfortable.
