Reviewed 16 December 2013

First time ever staying here as it was recommended by someone as we were going to show in O2. I was told it was near the O2 but near it was an understatement its in the same courtyard as O2..took us 30 seconds to walk from hotel to show and the luas stops right at the hotel..literally!!!
the Hotel itself was fab..rooms were spacious and the breakfast was delicious in the morning with a massive buffet style choice

Room Tip: book early to get good value

I stayed at the Gibson for the first time in Dec 13. It has an excellent location and is very trendy and chic. The room that I had on the 6 th floor was wonderful with great views over the city.
I also experienced a very friendly and efficient reception desk . I shall return soon.

Room Tip: 6th floor is fab.

I loved this hotel, you go into the car park and up the lift, check in was easy and friendly and walk across the road to the 02. The room was lovely and the bed very comfy, the problem we had was that after the show we decided to go to the bar for a night cap and there was a long line of people trying to get to the bar, now i understand it was very busy then but even when a lot of people left because they could not get served,,. the service was still terribly. there was plenty of staff on but they had no idea of who was next to serve so 5 people could be standing waiting and the person who just walked to the bar got served, a man standing beside me was getting very annoyed and i gave up and walked away.perhaps if the bar staff did less fancy twirling with bottles and used better bottle openers they might get to serving the customers quicker. A quarter of my split was spilled and i noticed that happening to others as well, also free pouring is never a good idea. my rant over I did really like everything about the hotel, we had a lovely evening meal and breakfast.

Dear dublinbid,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of the gibson hotel. I am delighted to read that you mostly enjoyed your stay however I am disappointed some aspects of your stay wasn't to the standard of the hotel. I have shared your review with all the team and they are as disappointed as me that you didn't enjoy your entire stay. I hope we get the chance to welcome you back soon.

Stayed in this hotel for a show over at the 02. Very warm welcoming from reception staff seemed friendly and efficient. Went to have a meal in the bar but was advised by a manager in the queue that they where running some sort of christmas market (which at first we doubted but went for anyway) when we got to the receptiin desk we were greeted my paul who explained how it worked and took the time to give us a tour which we taught was very helpfull as we were in doubt further more he went out of his way to make sure the kids where happy by giving them some marshmallows and colouring utensils. The food was very taste full and plenty of selection only criticism is it could have been warmer

All in all had a great stay and would definitly reccomend it!

Stayed at the Gibson for two nights recently and was very impressed with everything. Friendly efficient staff at Check in.Lovely room with a great bathroom, everthing is very modern and clean.Lots of little extras such as complimentary mulled wine and mince pies!! Breakfast is buffet style, nicely presented,good choice,but could have been hotter.Luas stops outside the hotel and takes you to the city centre in a few minutes.The O2 arena is within walking distance. Lots of parking adjacent to the hotel (14 EURO PER DAY). This hotel just as such a nice feel to it. Will be staying again.

Chic and understated with a music pedigree that runs deep, the gibson hotel Dublin is the ultimate urban retreat. Music lovers, art junkies, food fanatics - whatever your passion it's right on our doorstep. We do sleeping, meeting, dining, gigging, touring, wedding and relaxing really really well. We mix all these things with a fresh, energetic, slightly off centre approach and we know it works. Exhibitions, supporting local artists, urban weddings and the odd celebrity are elements of what makes us different to the normal Dublin Hotel. You will find our staff friendly, responsive and happy - there is a secret to this that we can't possibly share. The gibson hotel is the ideal location to explore the city and planning your stay is easy. The M1 and M50 are 8 minutes away via the Port Tunnel and we have ample covered parking for our guests. With the luas stop right outside our front door Connolly train station is only 8 minutes away and Heuston train station is a short 20 minutes from the hotel. The Luas will take you to the City centre in 10 minutes or if you prefer to take in the views of the River Liffey a brisk 15 minute walk along the quays will bring you to O'Connell street, the heart of Dublin city. Great beds, 100MB complimentary WiFi, a gym, relaxation area, restaurant, bar and meeting space are all part of the deal. The gibson hotel is modern yet comfortable, it's different and it's better, it's large, it's friendly and it's a building that is alive with great people from the moment you set foot until the moment you leave. ... more   less
