The Metro Hotel Dublin Airport

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel room had no AC, which isn't a big deal but the windows wouldn't open so you literally got no air flow in the room. Hotel is located in a shady part of town. No ATM near the hotel if you wanted to catch a taxi or the bus. The driver that picks you up though was god and they were on time with that

This was a great hotel. Excellent location. Very nicely appointed. Staff was very helpful. I would highly recommend this for anyone going to Southampton. Especially for anyone taking a cruise out of this port.

The king bed felt more like a queen, wifi is open (not secure), and you have to pay extra for the airport shuttle. The bathroom was a bit rumdown and the room fairly small. But my flight was at 6.30pm so this place served its purpose. Great to crash for an early flight but I wouldn't stay there for any length of time.

I love how easy it is to get to and from the airport any time of the day! Rooms are clean, neat, and comfortable.

I booked this hotel because of its location close to the airport. I was very disappointed. The bed was bowed and uncomfortable and instead of sleeping on my back, I had to sleep on my side because my knees would be hyper-extended. I can sleep almost anywhere on anything but I couldn't sleep at all on this bed. I slept better on the airplane ride back to the states. They offered no bath amenities other than soap and the back of the remote was missing so the batteries fell out all the time. The airport shuttle which we paid 5 euros/person was late and does not drop you off at the terminal but instead a parking lot 5-10 minutes from the terminal. Skip the shuttle and take a taxi, it will be faster, more convenient and around the same price.

Shuttle service to and from the airport was excellent (for only 5 Euros round trip). It was nice to not have to deal with or pay for taxi service. Staff were courteous and professional. Room was clean enough, but could use some updating. Hotel was conveniently located just a short walk to the #4 and #13 bus stops (which take you to Dublin City Center). The Metro Hotel should served its purpose of providing a clean enough room and comfortable enough bed for budget travelers who don't mind taking a bus downtown. It's much cheaper than a taxi. The bus will cost you no more than 2.50 Euros one way.

The primary reason my wife and I stayed at this hotel was because of its convenient location in relation to Dublin Airport, shuttle service to and from the airport (for 5 Euros round trip), and ease of using the Dublin Bus system to get to Dublin City Center. If all you're looking for is an inexpensive place to sleep and nothing more, this is the place. The hotel is good enough for travelers on a budget. The room was clean, but it could use some updating like a new carpet, mattress, pillows, and bed linens. The walls are paper thin, so hope you don't have noisy neighbors. The hotel is conveniently located a short walking distance from the 4 and 13 bus stops which take you to Dublin City Center. The staff were friendly, especially the shuttle drivers. It was convenient to have the shuttle service to and from the airport. We didn't use any other hotel amenities or the restaurant. Overall, I would recommend this hotel simply because it served its purpose and all for a low price. I couldn't imagine how expensive it would cost to stay in Dublin City Center!

We chose this hotel because of its close location to the airport, yet short bus ride in to city center. The location was great, it was very easy to find and simple to get to the airport to catch our flight home however, the hotel itself was very disappointing. Kristal at the front desk was wonderful at check in - explaining the wifi, giving us directions and bus information. The room itself was terrible. Immediately after exiting the elevator to head to our room we were hit with a very very strong smell of cigarette smoke throughout the entire floor. Our room was no different and reeked of cigarettes. Even my fiancée who is a former smoker agreed it was too strong and offensive an odor that we couldn't stay in that room. Kristal was wonderful and gave us another room on a different floor. This floor also smelled strongly of smoke, but the room was not that bad. Another oddity to note, the king bed we booked was actually two single beds pushed together, leaving a big uncomfortable seam in the middle of the bed where the mattresses met. Very uncomfortable, especially for a couple that like sleeping next to one another. In the morning we opened our 4th floor window to get a bit of fresh air only to have smoke wafting in from people in the rooms below or next to us smoking out their windows. The young woman at check out didn't seem to care when we told her. We would not stay here again. The entire hotel is plastered with no smoking signs however people clearly smoke inside the hotel on all floors. It may not be a big deal to some, but as a non smoker I can't stand the smell of cigarette smoke and don't want all of my clothes smelling of it when I get home from my trip. Huge disappointment. We will not be back.

A clean, modern hotel with good access to the airport. The front desk staff were VERY friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and good-sized. Room rate was very reasonable. Getting into the Dublin city center took a while by public bus, and I had to keep my eyes peeled to make sure I got off at the right stop upon returning to the hotel. The hotel is not near any bars, restaurants, or sights -- it's sole advantage is it's proximity to the airport. My girlfriend and I had an early flight the next morning, so it was perfect for us. For visitors who want access to downtown, there are definitely better options closer to the city center. The shuttle to and from the airport was punctual and quick, and the driver was very friendly. However, there is a 5 Euro charge per person round trip (payable at the front desk upon arrival.) Also, you have to call the hotel from the courtesy phone in the terminal to let them know that you require the shuttle service. I was expecting the hotel to airport shuttle would be complimentary, but it was not.

We only stayed one night and caught a flight home the next day. When we checked in the staff provided us with a map of Dublin and was very helpful in answering questions concerning getting downtown. We went downtown, had a great meal and bought some souvenirs even though it was pouring rain and cold. The room was clean, a good size and had everything we needed. It was a short commute to the airport. They have a shuttle that runs during the day that picked us up when we arrived for no charge. Just ask the information desk at the airport and they will tell you where to meet the shuttle. We then booked it to take us to the airport the next morning but there was a fee. You can also purchase breakfast buffer at a discount when you check in. It was a quiet stay and we were rested for our flight home the next day.

The hotel was pretty average across the board. Nothing to complain about, but not much that excites either. However, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. One morning I needed another 2 euros and 40 eurocents for the bus into the city and the receptionist gave it to me from her own purse. Of course, I paid her back later, but she was just giving it to me. It was a humungous help.

Mattresses are lumpy and you can feel the springs coming through the mattress (king). We were offered a room upgrade, but were told all the king mattresses would be the same, due to 2 box springs used to support it. We checked out the room upgrade, and ,seeing and feeling that mattress, we declined. Hotel food was pretty bad and service wasn't great (slow, as is most of Ireland, however). This hotel is in the middle of nowhere, so don't expect any other choices of restaurants nearby, within wAlking distance. Only McDonald's and a coffee shop are walkable.

nothing special about this hotel. close to airport with shuttle service available. lower price than many others is what attracted us for 1 night before flight.

Fine hotel with transportation to and from airport and car rental. Nice bus stop outside for easy access to Dublin. Everything was nice including restaurant and the reception desk.

We paid for the shuttle bus to the airport, but it was running late, so the receptionist ordered us a taxi and we didn't need to pay for it, the hotel did. It was a nice surprise! Izabella Bobrowska

I needed to be right by the airport for a morning flight and wanted to be able to get into city center also. It was about a 5 min ride to the airport and there was a bus right outside to hop on to get into the center (kind of a longer bus ride but cant beat it for 1.9 euro). Staff was super friendly and helpful, only thing I was sad about was no free breakfast but that is the least of my worries. Would definitely stay again!

Good option for travellers who need to spend night near airport and do not plan to venture into the city.

The hotel was very accomodating. Restaurant was nice and the shuttle from the airport was great. Nice if you don't plan on going in to the city.

Perfect for one night stay. shuttle to the airport is 2 euros each way.Front desk staff was very helpful.Room was clean and bed was comfortable. I would stay here again.

The non-smoking room smelled of cigarette smoke due to the ventilation system. They switched us to a new room but when we returned from dinner in the mediocre hotel restaurant it too smelled of smoke. There was no air conditioning so we had to leave the window open and the cross walk and traffic were loud during the night. We didn't initially see the hotel and had to turn around twice on nearby streets where vandalized cars were parked.
