Recent guest reviews

The staff is very warm and friendly made me feel at home Hotels extremely clean centrally located excellent choice to stay at if you want to see Dublin

You won't beat the location, and the hotel is beautiful inside with an outstanding staff. However, their is no business center, wifi is sketchy to unreliable, and ground floor rooms lack modern safety features in terms of the windows. There are no environmental controls in the rooms for you to adjust, and it is a noisy hotel because it is so old. Everything creaks and pops, and if you are a light sleeper, forget it. But I must say, the staff are world class at service. Just my honest assessment.

Early check-in available (€20). They took our bags up and gave us a quiet upgraded room. Breakfast is well worth it: traditional Irish and other options. Friendly staff and a clean room.

This hotel is located right on Stephens Green - THE place to be in Dublin. Lots of good shopping and food are just a stones throw away. The challlenge is the hotel is in a VERY old building. The space is fairly well maintained but issues with sewer smell (from drains that likely need work) in the rooms, poor wifi (inconsistent speeds & need to reconnect constantly) and uneven floors with significant slopes plague the hotel. The bathrooms have been recently remodeled but they strangely failed to fix this sewer issue. This sewer smell was present in at least two different hotel rooms during our stay as I spoke with another guest with the same issue. If these issues could be fixed, this hotel could be an ideal choice for visiting Dublin. Until then, I will not be returning.

The first hotel clerk was a bit rude. Told us we should have planned our trip when the gay pride parade wasn't going on. Like we had access to that information in advance. We were given a handicapped room without a proper shower. No hot water in the sink. Had to pay extra for parking three blocks away. Breakfast wasn't served until 8 so we didn't get to eat before leaving to catch our flight. By far the most disappointing of the hotels we stayed.

This is a charming "B&B" across from the Green. The location is great for shopping, restaurants and concerts. Breakfast was good and hearty (typical of Ireland) and the coffee better than most of Italy. The bathroom contained a good sized tub rather than the tiny showers so typical of most B&B's and hotels.Staff was helpful in finding us a good play to attend.

I had stayed here before and had a spacious room that only required a few short flights of stairs to access. The ambiance of that room was lovely and maintained much of the original architecture/ambiance. I was eager to return. This time I paid more money and had to walk quite far down a couple of hallways and up 3 or 4 flights of stairs with all my baggage, ending up in a very small room with a slanted ceiling that was modern and minimalist. It did, however, have a lovely sky light that could be opened for fresh air. I don't think there was even a chair to sit in. The internet connection was off and on, making my connection to work very difficult. I couldn't even check into my airline. The staff will carry your suitcase if you ask and they were accommodating when I needed an earlier continental breakfast. They were very friendly and kind. It might be good to ask for a room that faces St. Stephen's Green and is on a lower floor if carrying bags and/or climbing stairs is a challenge.

I've stayed at Staunton's three times over the years. In comparison to other guesthouse stays in Dublin, it far surpasses any in price, comfort, location and staff. I was there in August for a week doing research, and was made to feel at home. The staff, especially the front desk staff are incredibly helpful. I highly recommend Staunton's on the Green - my home away from home in Dublin.

Very nice staff, room a good size, big bathroom. no air conditioning which made room a bit warm, but could keep windows open to help at night. Breakfast was good. People of Dublin so warm and nice, St. Stephens Green is lovely. Near wonderful bars and restaurants. Would stay again

The location is great. Easy access to the downtown area. Very charming.

location plus breakfast and wifi included sold me. my only complaint would be that the bed was a bit too hard for me (however that's personal preference). Also, heads up, if you're looking during the summer months - no AC, just open windows.

Off St. Stephen's Green, you can walk to so many of Dublin's sites. the price was reasonable. We were in the new section and the rooms were average . The biggest problem was noise - we could hear everything in the hall and adjoining rooms. The common areas were not attractive. Staff was pleasant and helpful.

We had a few extra days in Dublin after our group tour and wanted to stay in the St Stephens Green area as we have visited Dublin on previous trips. What this hotel has is location, location, location! It’s close to all points of interest one desires in Dublin (shopping, Trinity College, museums, etc.) The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel is a converted old Georgian building, so it has much old world charm. There is a 2 story new section is the back, but we had a room in the older section. Our biggest negative (which may not apply to everyone) is that our room was on the 3rd floor. There is NO elevator (lift) in this hotel which required navigating 6 flights of stairs to get to our room (it takes 2 long flights of stairs to reach each floor). If you have any mobility issues this would be an issue and another hotel should be considered. The main attraction of this hotel is its locations, otherwise all other aspects are average (room, staff, cleanliness, etc). And if you need to avoid stairs this is not the hotel for you.
