The Plaza Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for 6 nights. The beds were comfy. The view was breathtakingly beautiful. We’re never given clean glasses but housekeeping was good. The full Irish breakfast was that filling. There was a hole in the couch but i overlooked that. The internet was slow compared to American standards.

Stayed in the Plaza Hotel in Tallaght for two nights as attending a funeral. Staff were not the friendliest but the hotel itself was ok. Room was clean bathroom was nice with a powerful shower. Only problem with the room was it was on a corner of the building so had windows all the way round but the curtains did not join all the way so there was light coming through. Booked breakfast both mornings which was very good but it was a shame the chairs in the restaurant were torn and had material from seat missing. Overall a good stay at a very reasonable price.

I stayed here on a night where I couldn't get anything more central at any sort of a reasonable price and needed to be on the luas. Car park very handy and no faffing about with ticket validation could just drive in. On check in during the evening there was such a nice Dublin slightly older man at reception whose name I can't remember unfortunately. He couldn't have been more helpful with directions and timings for Luas. The room was ok in need of updating (hairdryer broken, am sure reception would have sent up another had I asked) old style TV, white cup marks on table from hot cups burning table. But it was perfectly clean, quiet and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was standard enough, nothing wrong with it. Luas stop was about 8 mins from hotel and no problem with leaving car in hotel for day. For the price and the convenience to luas it was good value. Across the road from the square if shopping is your purpose

If nostalgia is your thing then the Plaza is for you. Our room was a throwback to the 80s with a CRT TV, Trouser Press, and a decor that has not been updated since the hotel was built. The breakfast room needs a revamp too, the chairs have torn covers and everything about the hotel seems dated. On the plus side the room was clean and the bathroom is a wet room with powerful shower. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was tasty.

This is easily the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at. The rooms are dirty, old, and smell like mold. The wallpaper was literally peeling off the walls. They look nothing like the photos. Very far from city center. I’m not sure how anyone would consider this a 4 star hotel. There are hundreds of other hotels in Dublin- don’t stay here!!

This isn't a 4* hotel, I wouldn't give it 1* The rooms are dated and furniture all marked with drink rings, pain peeling of the window sills, restaurant and bar chairs all ripped, the service in restaurant non existent, rude staff, WILL NOT go back,

Do not be fooled by the pictures of this hotel. It is NOTHING like the reality. Rooms are shabby . Ring stains from cups all over furniture. Chairs in restaurant have cracks and chips all over the seats. We booked the restaurant for our second night as it was my birthday. When we arrived we were shown to a tiny table ( even though the place was empty) we were given a menu which contained a choice of 3 starters including a vegetarian option and the same for main course. We were subsequently ignored for 15 minutes at which point we departed and found a nice Chinese restaurant close by ( new leaf). I would not recommend anyone to stay here. On departure we were not even wished a safe journey home " hope you enjoyed your stay " , see you again " . Nothing. Possibly the worst hotel I have ever visited and I have been to a few.

The room is nothing like the ones on the website. Our room was shabby lamp shades all broken the chairs were threadbare. The hotel is quite a distance into dublin the busses are very easy to catch and are quite reasonably priced. The breakfast was really nice with a nice selection. The receptionist was quite stern looking and never smiled. The room though was clean and the bathroom was spotless the hotel just needs to be updated. Sorry I will not be staying again.

Stayed here for one night on Saturday the hotel was lovely with friendly staff no problems with check-in allocated a room number 247 The room was spacious it had double bed & single bed so must of been family room allocated. The room was not very clean with black long hairs all over the bath & toilet. It is very outdated with a old television that didn’t work had no volume buttons & remote control was broken. We couldn’t adjust the heating and it was very stuffy & too hot. The bed was uncomfortable with very old mattress and the bed was on wheels so moved a lot so not a lot of sleep. We had friends stay in different room & it was lovely very modern so think we were unlucky. The breakfast next morning was delicious & everything was cooked fresh with a great choice. Also the hotel has an attached bar grumpys serves great food & nice atmosphere.

Such a lovely lobby. The staff were great and the rooms were spotless and felt nice. Cannot beat the vibe of the location in the heart of everything but still nice and quiet. Slept great. I'd stay again no problem.
