The Fitzwilliam Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff were nothing less than stellar all the way round - friendly, accommodating, efficient and down right nice.

The Fitzwilliam is ideally-located for tourists and visitors who want to be within walking distance of many of Dublin's famous landmarks. It is an attractive, well-managed hotel with a friendly staff, willing to assist first-time visitors to Dublin with their knowledge of the city.

The Fitzwilliam is terribly overpriced. Our 6th floor room, reached by stairs and a dark corridor as if it were a maid's room, was tiny and worn. All this for more than $300/night. Absurd.

The Fitzwilliam Hotel was the perfect place to stay. The hotel is lovely and the amenities perfect.

I have been to Dublin many times and love to stay around St. Stephan's Green which is in a safe, convenient and upscale area. This hotel is across the street from the Green but has excellent soundproofing so that once I returned for the night it was peaceful. Clean modern and less expensive than others on or near the Green.

excellant location, friendly helpful staff, oeverything very walkable ditance and restaurant served lovely dinner. great experience, would definitely return

Reviews were 100 correct. Staff were sincere and extraordinary. Great location such as: morning runs in St Stephens park, catching best coffee at Insomnia, Irish breakfast at Hutch & Sons and evenings at the Shelbourns #27 Bar with the #27. If staying in, make sure you book at Thornton's for a wonderful meal.

We visited the Fitzwilliam with our young daughter, and the staff was just terrific with her, from setting up a comfortable crib to playing baby "peek-a-boo" games in the lobby, giving her crayons in the bar/restaurant, and finding us a delicious child-friendly restaurant with open reservations around the corner. While it's clearly an upscale hotel, the staff treated our daughter like royalty and we loved the experience for it.

Warm and welcoming, very friendly and helpful staff, called and arranged a Taxi to the Airport for us, located near the Green and around all kinds off restaurants, pubs, shopping, etc...Room was very clean, free WiFi, etc... Room was kind of small though and bed was a little too firm for my liking. Kind of pricy for one nights stay. Overall, a good experience and would recommend to others staying in Dublin :-)

very nice help, room was beautiful, just slightly small, bathroom was nice size and clean as a whistle

I've stayed here 5-6 times, and I love this hotel for the quiet and location. And, it's nice and very comfortable. This time, I didn't have a great stay. The shower had so much water pressure I almost couldn't even stand up in there. The little shower curtain let water all over the floor. The bed was too small - I thought I had a Queen from my reservation, but my feet hung off the end which is really uncomfortable. I think it was just a full size? I have a queen at home, and this wasn't a queen. They need to replace the carpeting in the rooms and fix the wood flooring because it's really worn out at this point. Some of my light switches didn't work either... they need to fix some stuff, really - room 314 guys, take a look. Anyway, the location and quiet can't be beat...and there's good air conditioning in the rooms. But it could use some TLC.

Starting with the positive - the location was amazing, right in the center of Dublin, walking distance to all the great places to visit. However, this is not a hotel I'd stay at again. Nothing was terrible, but everything was a little less than satisfactory - The room was nice but small, the bathroom was clean but the faucet leaks, and the minibar malfunctioned. The worst part of the experience was being charged 10 Euros for one local call. If this were a budget hotel, I would have no complaints, but it was definitely not worth the luxury hotel rate that we paid.

Stayed 3 days.Excellent good value parking facilities .All staff were extremely friendly and competent.

I have stayed at all four of the main hotels near St. Stephen's Green and the Merrion Sq area. They're all fine and booking the cheapest isn't a bad way to go if one is a lot cheaper than the others. Fitzwilliam is a new modern property but lacks the old Irish charm of two of the others nearby... the Irish Constitution definitely wasn't signed on the second floor of this property. The Fitzwilliam location is probably best, as it's closest to Gaiety Corner and Grafton St, from which it's a short walk to Temple Bar and other prime areas. The walls are a bit flimsy here - possible to hear conversations in the next room - and the sound of running water in the middle of the night was a bit annoying.

I don't know what more you could want from a hotel. Sir Terrance Conran-designed, you get a lovely room that's not only well-appointed, but comfortable and unbelievably serene in a large city. It's location is perfect for doing anything in Dublin and steps away from Grafton Street for shopping or a play at the Gaiety Theater. This was a great deal within the pre-paid package we bought, as well. A Five-Star hotel for the price of a 2-3 star! So remember to watch for the air-hotel packages! We didn't use a lot of the amenities, since we've been to Dublin many times -- but the staff couldn't have been friendlier with the delivery of giant chocolate eggs for Easter (a hotel gift) and a hug from the doorman when we left. :) What more could you want? :)

I stayed a week while visiting my daughter and the hotel staff (concierge, desk, door, and room) were all incredibly helpful, informed, and kind to both of us! It was a perfect home-base for exploring Dublin and the surrounding area. Most mornings I would pick up my coffee americano from the Bald Barrista next door and walk around St Stephen's Green before heading out with my tour guide for the day.

This is in a great location, has a quiet view of the courtyard. I would definitely stay here again.

Front desk staff were very nice and the room was very nice too. We overlooked the green and I was concerned about the street noise but the windows were well insulated. Bed and bath were very nice and the location couldn't be beat, easy walk to pubs. The hotel showed its age in stairwells but otherwise was in very good shape.

Staff was very helpful in everyway. Concierge was extremely helpful. Did leave a personal item that was not found after we left.

I was glad the hotel was up to snuff. Being in Dublin and other large cities one can get something terrible when you don't know the city. The location was ideal and the room was very clean and comfortable, however we were not able to check in at 2:00 pm because check in was at 3 p.m. and the room was not ready. Really and hour before check in and the room is not ready?. The room was smaller than I expected but it is the city and space is precious. Overall a nice 5 star place that I would recommend.
