Courteous staff. Good location. Walking distance or short cab rides to all.

Proximity to things to do in Dublin. Clean and quiet place to stay.

Wonderful location - great staff - nice AC in room

I can’t say enough good things about this hotel... clean, modern breakfast was top quality. Highly recommend!

Reserved 4 rooms, email confirmation from orbitz confirmed 4 rooms, only 3 were booked. 2 members of our group had to relocate to another hotel. Not a good way to start our trip.

I stayed at the Hilton for two nights on a recent vacation. The hotel is in good condition and has a nice breakfast. It is in a quieter neighborhood. We selected it because of its proximity to Kilmainham Gaol. Be aware, the hotel is a ways from other poplar attractions, though accessible by bus or cab (we are familiar with Dublin and were aware of this). I found the staff helpful (they obtained tickets for to Kilmainham Gaol). However, the hotel would benefit from having some additional desk and bell staff. The checkout line was lengthy and although there was a card on file, we were requested to present a card at checkout. Not sure what the reason for this is, but it necessitated an additional 20 minute wait to check out. We also had difficulty getting bell staff to help with taking bags to a taxi when we were departing, as well as getting assistance upon arrival at the hotel. Normally, this would not matter to me. But for older travelers or those with issues lifting luggage, you should be aware that the entrance for the hotel is up a few stairs (there is a ramp) and is probably 35 feet from the street.

Ana was Great ... Thank You Really Good Central Dublin Location

We stayed at the Hilton for one night on a Friday, would have stayed longer if not for the expense, and enjoyed it. There are plenty of things to do within walking distance. The room was comfortable and breakfast was really good. The hotel seemed busy with plenty of tourists and the business type, so it must be popular.

[...] The room was large and had several extra ammenities (it was nice having a desk and safe in the room). The room was very clean and comfortable. The only real downside was the fact that the AC didn't seem to work. We discussed it with them a couple of times and they said they would look into it. But it didn't change. This room had a balcony and so we opened the door to let in some air. It wasn't horrible. But it was uncomfortable to sleep in. I'm guessing, but I'd say it was in the upper 70's in the room at night.So, the positives are that the staff were easy to work with and offered me a better room. They also happily set up taxi reservations. If it hadn't been for the airconditioning (for me this was a big one) the room would have been fabulous. We choose to use the bus system to move around. Since the hotel is across the street from Kilmainham Gaol, it has a Hop on Hop Off stop right across the street. Very handy. We mainly used the regular buses. That stop was another block down. This hotel is not near downtown. But it doesn't take long to get where to are going after the bus arrives. You are next to the Gaol and a Museum. But other attractions require a bus or taxi. This survey asked me if I'd recommend it or not. I had to pick, so I said "no." But, I think a better answer would be that I would recommend it with reservations. I don't think that the AC problem is common. But, there are probably better places to stay closer in to town.

I stayed at this hotel only as a lay-over at the beginning and at the end of a lengthy multi-leg journey and so I deliberately chose a "branded" hotel(to have reliable comforts) within reasonable reach of the airport and the city center. My first stay disappointed me : the room was small and cramped - and despite numerous complaints I couldn't get a working tv - didn't find the room up to "Hilton" standards. I made my complaints heard and on my home-stretch I got a wonderful room with everything in working order; I also had opportunity to try out the spa pool which was wonderful and had a couple of meals in the two restaurants which were pretty average. The location was good - away from the hustle and bustle of the city center and yet with a hop-on-hop-off bus almost at the door. Dublin heusten station within a good 20-30 minute walk from the hotel (not 5 minutes as stated on some other tarvel sites).
