After staying at The Gresham for the last 6 years, we decided to try this hotel out after 1 who traveled with us last year stayed here. And our group consisted of 10 total and all who stayed here loved it. It used to be a Best Western Plus property and guess they've struck out on their own. Highly recommend...

Had a three night stay as a surprise. Can't comment on VFM as I didn't pay. Very helpful staff. Very easy to get to just take the 747 air bus from the airport, ignore the touts trying to get you on their more expensive buses. The 747 stops right outside the hotel, ask the driver to let you know when...

The hotel was conveniently located just off O'Connell street, close to bus, tram and train services. The bus from the airport dropped us off at the hotel door. The room was clean and had everything you would need for a short stay including an iron and ironing board, tea making facilities, spare pillows and some basic toiletries. The room was...

Well I don't know why people complain about this hotel. It's location is ideal. 10 minutes to Temple Bar and tour bus stop outside and airport bus picks up and drops off outside hotel.

We were surprised to arrive at the very centrally located and welcoming hotel. The bus 747 from the airport took around half an hour and dropped us conveniently right outside the hotel. We were then greeted with very friendly reception staff who swiftly processed us into the hotel. The room which we were allocated was on the third floor at...

Visited with my 12 year old son. Short wait for room to be ready after check in time - had to ask twice at reception. Other guests observed checking in after us and accessing room straight away. Room was warm, clean and comfortable. Unfortunately we had noisy neighbours who had the tv on loud throughout the night. On contacting reception...

This hotel is very clean, the beds are comfortable and the shower was great. Very good location close to O'Connell Street, Temple Bar, Grafton St, etc. Parking at the Q Clery parking garage was extremely easy and convenient. I would definitely stay here again next time I am in Dublin.

This hotel is in an amazing location within the city centre. The airport bus stops right outside, and just a short walk around the corner are a wide variety of shops, bars, restaurants and buses. Was a very quick check in process which was great, although the corridors to find your room are quite difficult to navigate and would be...
