Dublin Skylon Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Nice clean hotel, good sized room on the 5th floor, however, no lift from 4th up. Not a problem for ourselves. Towels changed daily, safe, kettle and hairdrier all provided.
Ideal location, 20 mins from airport using public bus number 16 or 41, 10 mins to city centre. Ate in restaurant first night, food passable, not brilliant. Staff seemed to be overworked and very busy. Didn't see entertainment and non provided on the Saturday night.
Simple check in bags left at reception on arrival and room ready by evening.
All in all a very pleasant stay, nice friendly and helpful staff, would definitely use the hotel on our next visit.
Word of warning, nothing to do with the hotel but if you think Scandinavia is dear Dublin City Centre is more expensive.

Room Tip: Avoid 5th floor if you struggle up to flights of stairs, otherwise only 4 rooms up there and nice an...

We stayed here from the 10th-14th July 2014 we paid around £280 which was good value compared to other hotels. The hotel is around a 20 minute walk to the city centre which is nice. There is a bus stop directly outside which is great (buses only accept coins). There is also a dominos pizza across the road which is great for any late night snacking!
The food at the hotel was ok, nothing special.
The room was clean and tidy, bathroom quite small, bed very big not the comfiest and the tv was very small in comparison to the room. We had one slight problem on a few occassions we had a strong smell of sewerage in the bedroom coming from the bathroom we rang reception and she flushed the toilet a few times and brought us a nearly empty can of air freshener so wasn't really very helpful. Also one complaint was that we had to ask for extra tea making facilities they were not automatically refilled.
The hotel manager was very friendly and chatty
Overall good hotel :)

We stayed for 3 nights as a honeymoon couple with the wife's mother.
The hotel is convenient only 10 minutes from the Airport and city center.
Rooms are clean and staff are very friendly, however:
We stayed in Room 105 and for some bizarre reason the hotel owners thought it would be a good idea to shine a 2000 Watt floodlight straight into our window, I asked 3 times if this could be turned off but nothing was done ! ... the curtains block out most of it but light still floods over the top.
It was sweltering hot in the room, as we had to keep the curtains and windows closed (due to the traffic noise) there is no AC in the rooms which is disappointing. so a good nights rest was not had ! They supplied a fan, which was the only fan i had ever encountered that neither blew nor sucked... but the noise was nice as it drowned out the traffic.
My wifes mother was staying in room 224 this was larger but still no AC and with the window open receives a strong smell from the kitchen as the huge noisy kitchen extractor fan is directly below the window.. not very nice.
WIFI was complicated and the staff must get annoyed issuing passwords to everyone it must take up alot of their time.
And why .. why .. why are they still using halogen bulbs ! I counted 10 in our room so thats 500Watts times 50 rooms !!! .. change to LED and save money.
Its a great location.. staff are good.. but sleep, you have to be very lucky and get a room round the back and away from the kitchen extractor.

Room Tip: Dont book room facing the road. Dont book rooms above the kitchen extractor
