“Good, not great.”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Stayed with my wife for 1 night at the beginning of December.
First the good points:
Well located close to Grafton Street and St, Stephens Green
Nice cosy friendly bar
Clean and comfortable rooms

However:
Upon arrival we were initially told that out guaranteed upgrade was not available as the hotel was full. After some consultation between the receptionist and the duty manager we eventually got our upgrade, although not really convinced it was much of an upgrade as we didn't see any other rooms ago compare AND we had been told the hotel was FULL?
Room was at the front of the hotel above the street and as such was noisy when's he bars emptied.
An alarm sounded ALL night until 11am from a nearby building which kept us awake. Admittedly this was despite efforts from the hotel and apparently the Garda/police to raise the key holder. I don't blame the hotel for this but it didn't help.
It took over one hour for our room service order for breakfast to arrive and this was only after a follow up phone call.

We enjoyed our stay and the convenience of the hotel was good, but the initially problem at check in and again with the breakfast I feel calls into question the attitude towards service of the hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back of the hotel which according to the staff will be quieter.

My wife and I spent one night here in October. I couldn't fault it and would have no hesitation in recommending it to my friends. The room was lovely and the staff couldn't have been nicer.
Breakfast was very good and the location was perfect.
We hope to stay again soon.

This really is an exceptional hotel in a lovely quiet part of Central Dublin. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. The rooms, service and breakfast are all top class. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Dublin.

Have stayed here now a number of times and everytime the service, hospitality and ambience is always outstanding! Near to everything worth seeing and doing in Dublin, good value, great food and fantastic staff. My only quibble? They should have a health warning on the breakfast room, its that damn good!

Room Tip: ask for a room to the front, the view at the back is non existent!

We have just come back from 2 nights in Brooks for Christmas and both me and my Partner were not disappointed. The Staff are extremely welcoming and friendly, they took interest in everyone and the whole experience had a wonderfully personal touch to it.
The Hotel is very central with Grafton street around the corner, but its secluded from bars so we did not have any issue with outside noise.
On Christmas day we got breakfast in Bed and the Staff gave each of us a very personal Christmas gift, the thought that had gone into this was truly amazing and made the experience very special.
The food was outstanding with great service from all the staff. Lovely wine selection.
We did not watch any films but the cinema was open playing christmas films and was lovely to see.
There was a pianist playing christmas songs and everyone was friendly throughout our stay. The Hotel room (deluxe Room) was spacious and had a huge Bed! it was contemporary with a touch of Retro Style.
We would highly recommend this Hotel to Friends and Family and are already thinking of excuses to go Back!
I would like to thank the Staff at the Hotel for making our experience and Christmas so nice.

Room Tip: Worth getting a deluxe room at the hotel, cost is not much extra and the comfort was great

Have stayed here a few times when in Dublin on business. Its very centrally located near St. Stephens Green, Trinity College and the Temple Bar area but on a quiet street. This time I was a bit disappointed with a few things, such as the wifi not working in my room and the breakfast service being rather abrupt, bordering on rude (but the food was very good). The bar is terrific - very comfortable, generally quiet and a nice place in the evening to have a drink and catch up on some work. Front desk and concierge staff very helpful.

We stayed here recently for a girlie catch up! A perfect city centre hotel; friendly staff and a great breakfast. The rooms are well appointed and equipped with everything you need for an overnight/weekend break in Dublin. The holiday have a parking arrangement with Drury Street Car Park and St Stephen's Green Car Park - discount rate for hotel guests. We dined in the nearby Rustic Stone, which was excellent and finished the night in The Market Bar - very handy stroll back to the hotel!
