Very nice boutique hotel, central location, friendly front desk.

We were traveling with a friend requiring wheelchair accessibility. For our party it was an essential feature that Brooks hotel has a flat roll-in access from the street to the lobby and restaurant. The rooms were cozy, one of which was a nicely appointed, adapted wheelchair accessible room.

We travelled around Dublin on the "Hop-on hop-off Dublin tourist bus". This tourist bus is highly recommended for moving around Dublin's primary attractions. It too is fully accessible, with a purpose built ramp managed by the driver.

We have stayed at Brooks twice. Having been very impressed on our first visit we were delighted to find standards just as high on our second visit, one year later. Location is very central, and convenient for Grafton Street and Trinty College. Rooms are very well appointed and serviced to a very high standard. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We had an evening meal on our second visit, and although the prices are a bit higher than some of the excellent local restaurants, the quality of the food was worth every extra cent. We'd definitely go back to Brooks again.

We stay in Brooks at least once a year, and it is always an excellent base. This time we arrived mid-morning and were given upgraded rooms as soon as we got there. Breakfasts are excellent, with freshly cooked Full Irish and plenty of fruit, breads and cereals. Rooms are very comfortable, with free wi-fi. There is a nice bar and a residents' lounge in the basement to escape to. All in all, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Dublin.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are a bit quieter, but Brooks is not on a main street,

The Brooks Hotel is 99% perfect. (I only marked it down as some of the finer details were just a little bit lacking e.g. a bowl with chips in it which took the shine off an otherwise gorgeous room.)

Location excellent for all the major attractions.

As part of the romance package, we had breakfast in bed both days so can't comment on the breakfast buffet as such, and dinner, which was lovely.

If you're looking for somewhere to eat that's not too far away, check out the Market Bar.

As for service, we couldn't fault it - from the moment we arrived and got the warmest of welcomes from Connor, the Concierge, through to the bar/waiting staff (speak to Jacek about his whiskey tasting sessions) they were so attentive.

Brooks Hotel is really well located in easy walking distance to most of the major attractions plus heaps of bars,restaurants and shopping.

Brooks has tried to conjure an oldy worldy style hotel. It generally works. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is very good value if included in room price as it was for me.

The room on first impression is Victorian/ Edwardian well equipped but very small (practically no space to open a suitcase on the floor). When you are staying 5 nights you need more space. Bathroom is tiny but ok.

After a while it also became obvious that the room wasn't wearing well; wall paper coming off walls, paint badly touched up in bathroom (water damage?), scrape marks along bedroom walls where others have tried to manhandle their bags. Curtains damaged by smokers (despite being non smoking).

Its a good hotel but, for the price, should be in better condition.
