“Fabulous. Cant wait to return for a 3rd time”
The hotel is very modern and chic. We have stayed in a balcony room and a courtyard room, each room had free wifi, bottle water, a fridge, lovely high end toiletries, and a safe, the shower in the bathroom is amazing. The beds are super comfy. With regard to the window in the bathroom it really is not an issue, its positioned in a way that you cannot see in unless you actually make a point of going over and leaning in to have a look, I was apprehensive before my first stay after reading some reviews, but it’s no problem whatsoever.
All the staff we dealt with were very pleasant and helpful. The room rates are very reasonable and hopefully will continue to be so
An issue I have with the hotel is the car parking charges, they are very expensive at €14 per night, it really needs to be taken into account when booking a room here. There have been times where we wanted to book The Gibson for a weekend break but when the parking charges were added on we chose different hotels around Dublin. I would not mind paying €7 per night but €14 is a bit ridiculous.
I believe a cinema has recently opened close to the hotel. And there is a small shop to the rear of the hotel but apart from this the area is not very developed and in a way it does let the hotel down, but saying that the rooms and hotel interior make up for what the general area is lacking in and I would not let it put me off staying here.
A fabulous hotel and a must to stay in, already looking forward to returning in July!!!

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the gibson hotel yet again and for taking the time to provide us with your valued feedback. It is extremely pleasing that you continue to have memorable experiences whilst staying with us. Unfortunately we do not own the car park so the charges are out of our control. We have negotiated a 50% discount on an overnight rate for our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back again in July.
