“Will definitely be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

Stayed in The Gibson on New Years Eve and found it to be a lovely hotel, The Room was spacious and I LOVED the shower! I loved having a balcony and blinds with it's control on the wall, in the morning after a late night the room was lovely and dark! The staff were lovely, warm and friendly, even though it was New Years Eve and they were working they were very good humoured and helpful! The big thing for me was how quiet it was! I am a very light sleeper and am usually awoken early in hotels by banging doors! Now maybe this was due to people sleeping later due to the night that was in it but whatever the reason, I loved it! I will definitely be returning!

Had a lovely stay at this hotel with family members. Room very comfortable and all fittings stylish. Enjoyed the architecture of all the courtyards, created a very relaxed atmosphere. Don't forget to check out the relaxation area on the 5th floor!
Great location with the Luas immediately outside and taxis are quick to pick up.
Excellent venue if going to a show in O2, there was extra security checks on check-in and when returning to the hotel after the gig.

Room Tip: Ask to sign up for relaxation area on check in.

Had a really nice stay with the family in November. We were welcomed by extremely friendly check in staff and received interconnecting rooms as requested. The rooms were large, modern, clean and comfortable. We had breakfast, dinner and room service which were all very good too. The only surprise was that they did not have a babysitting service of any kind. We were advised to look for a babysitter on the internet. I would still recommend this hotel but I think those with kids should know.

Visiting Dublin for Jay Z concert at the O2 and had booked into this hotel as it was relatively near! Well, I couldn't have got any nearer if I'd tried....it was directly facing the O2 across a pedestrianised area where the trams stopped. Hotel itself is very modern and really nice. Didn't spend long in the hotel itself due to only being there overnight for the concert but what I saw I liked and would definitely return to this hotel the next time I am in Dublin.

Some say Gibson is a multi millionaire living on the top floor of the hotel and no one knows exactly who he is or what he does.

Maybe I'm thinking of something else...

Anyway the hotel is great for a few simple reasons.

1) Location - near the O2 (few stops away from main shops/pubs/restaurants. Also there is a cinema below the hotel itself)

2) Transport - Luas is just outside the door.

3) Comfort - The entire hotel itself is modern with a touch of class and the rooms have everything you need to relax. Shower, TV, comfy big bed and of course Room Service (which was handy when I 'needed' a brownie at 1am.

4) Hospitality - The staff were very nice and I was greeted with a smile and a handshake.

I'm sure there is a few more things I'm forgetting but overall it was a pleasant experience. Would return again.

Overall a nice hotel. We had to switch room due to a lot of noice from a nightclub in the basemanet, but the desk was helpful. Good breakfast, and easy access to the city center with the Lucas (right by the hotel entrance).

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.

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
