The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The Location is Great - close to several Pubs, restaurants, downtown area and sightseing buses.
The room and bathroom are comfortable and the breakfast is good and the price is ok.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Brooks. Connor, the concierge, is one of a kind. He got us on to a sold out tour and made some grat recommendations for places to eat. The breakfast is awesome, it includes a buffet or made to order. You can really fill up if you have a mind to and everything was delicious. The staff are super courteous and helpful. My family highly recommends the Brooks.

My friend and I (both dudes) stayed here in September 2013. We had a great time over the 4 nights/5 days. The one negative that we had was that the room got warm, even in September and having the window open, let in the noise from the street. The noise wasn't too bad given that we were out on the town until 2-3am, but the morning is quite noisy with trash trucks and people getting to work. The room was a decent size, not quite American big, but bigger than most other U.K. rooms in a convenient location. The hotel bar looked nice, but we never drank there, instead we went to the Hairy Lemon just meters away on the corner. Sounds like a weird place, but they serve great food, great bread pudding, and have plenty of Kilkenny and Guinness on tap. We watched a couple of football games there and Gaelic Football, which was awesome! The service is so friendly that we were here almost every day, and sometimes twice. The coffee is pretty good as well, be that straight or Irish coffee! Enjoy the hotel for the location and the comfort, but get out on the town and soak up the Dublin experience!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from the front of the building, it'll be quieter.

Brooks Hotel has a wonderful location! Truth be told, Dublin is a small city and everything is somewhat close, but Brooks was very close to most everything I wanted to see. Just a few minutes from Trinity College, river, shopping district, Temple Bar, fabulous restaurants!

Best thing? If I HAD to pick, I'd say it was the wonderful breakfast (included). Not only continental favorites: fresh baked breads, local cheeses, compotes, fresh fruits, fresh yogurts, all the cooked to order was included as well. Still not sure what a kipper is, and I've never had porridge with cream and Jameson's before but good God, everything was delicious.

Our king bed was comfy and warm. Nothing like European bedsheets! Expect a tinier bathroom if you're a Yank like myself, but good water pressure and plenty of hot water.

Service is terrific. they fall over themselves to make sure you are taken care of.

Love this place!

The Brooks Hotel is the perfect hotel to stay in Dublin if you want genuine old world charm and excellent service without sacrificing conveniences and comfort. The rooms (including bathrooms) are comfortable and modern, and the lobby, restaurant and bar retain the dark wood and appurtenances characteristic of a old hotel. The staff are very cordial and helpful. The hotel is very well located to get to major cultural attractions and shops. We recommend it highly and will definitely stay there again.

We stayed as two couples at the Brooks for two nights at the end of our Ireland holiday. We checked in early, but the hotel stored our luggage for us till our rooms were ready so we were free to do other things. When we got our rooms we were disappointed that they weren't close to each other, but as it turned out the front desk staff had made a mistake and one couple got a higher-end room than we actually paid for, so we weren't complaining. We only found out when another couple opened our door while we were inside. After confused apologies on both sides, the other couple backed out, and moments later we got an apologetic call from the front desk; they simply asked to confirm our last name so that their records would be correct. It meant that our room had more space for the four of us to gather to relax for a bit before dinner, etc. At all times we found all staff (front desk, restaurant servers, bartender, concierge) very friendly but professional. The rooms were very clean, and the turndown service was a welcome touch. We had no problems with wifi or street noise, as some others have mentioned. The location was excellent, as it was on the southern end of the Temple Bar area and a short walk to Grafton Street, Trinity College, O'Connell Street and stops for the Hop On Hop Off bus. Breakfast was delicious and ample (with cold buffet and choice of hot cooked), and both the men tried and liked the oatmeal with a dash of Jameson's.

Room Tip: If you want some quiet time in comfortable surroundings, take your book down to the Residents Lounge...
