Me and my boyfriend were in Dublin for our spring vacation. Dublin was our first stop and The Gibson Hotel our house for three days. In those three days everything was great: breakfast, room, hotel staff (everyone was really nice and friendly). The hotel is pretty new and with really beautiful room, big enough, with all comforts. They are really precise on restaurant schedule: if you arrive three or five minutes before the closing hour you can be sure that you're not going to have your breakfast. So be on time.
The location is perfect: in front of it there is a Luas stop and you can take a tram to city center (about ten minutes) every 8 minutes. If you pay attention on environment and pollution they are really well organized about reduce our footprints.
But this is the nice part.
At the end of our journey we spent another night here and it was the opposite experience of the previous one. good points for this second stay: nice staff and the hotel building. We have reserved our room months in advance and we had a connecting room with a wood door closed. We had a very early flight (6 a.m.) and we cannot sleep at all. Our "roommate" watched tv with a very loud volume until 2.45 a.m. Last point: I was a little bit sick that night so we decided to stay in our room trying to chill out before our trip. Bad idea: we waited more than one hour for room service and when they arrived they had forgotten our water. So no sleep+eating late+alarm clock at 4 a.m.... You know what I mean. I'd like to stay another time at Gibson hotel to understand which one is the real soul of this beautiful design hotel.
