“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 16 August 2012

Great hotel! Brilliant location! Reasonably priced. The food was great. Rooms were spcaious - not a very good view though! the bus stops pretty much outside from the airport. you can leave your luggage on check in/out day at no extra cost. Staff were very helpful.

Have stayed at this Hotel regularly over the years and always found the staff friendly and helpful. The prices are generally reasonable except when there is some special event in Dublin.The food in Ted's restaurant is fairly basic but always of good quality and well priced. The bedrooms are comfortable but if possible try to avoid some rooms at the back which can be extrmely noisy at night due presumably to the ventilation and other systems nearby. Over-all, good value.

Reserved on booking.com a double room for £87. The room was spacious and comfy with a lovely big bathroom. This didn't include breakfast and unfortunately breakfast was too pricey for us here but we went 5 mins up the road to the kingfisher and had a lovely breakfast. The hotel feels luxurious and the staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. Great service!! Stored our bags for the day too!! The air coach bus stops outside and it's around 10 mins walk past the shops to temple bar - great location!!! Would love to return and try the afternoon tea! Great stay with great service and polite friendly staff. Highly recommend !!

While traveling through Ireland we spent a couple of days in Dublin. We chose this hotel because it was right on the main street close to all the pubs and music. The price was very reasonable and the rooms were great! The staff was very inviting and friendly. We were allowed to leave our luggage in our rooms for a two hour late check out at no extra charge. We would definately stay here again!

Depending on what your looking for, but this hotel ticked all the boxes. We had a front room (308)..some street noise, but the view was worth it.
Room service and service by all staff was excellent, nothing was too much.
Breakfast was included, the food was average, but the service by the staff made up for it.
Would stay here again in Dublin!

stayed for two nights 8/9 august 2012. Room small but clean, air con didnt work. Staff all polite and helpful. Had a meal in Toddys bar, good quality and priced as keen as any where in the surrounding area. Breakfast on the second day worst i have ever come across. It was obvious the staff were under pressure and they all did their best so hats of to them but, hot food cold, constantly run out, no plates, un cleared tables every where. MANAGEMENT GET THEM HELP. Apart from that we enjoyed the stay.

Dreadful bedroom and dreadful service. Overpriced and my bedroom would have been more suited to a **Hotel (two star hotel). The carpet was grubby, the room was dull, the toilet paper holder was hanging off the wall, the shower head was filthy. I waited from bar food service for 15 minutes before I managed to order. There was no "luxury" for me at The Gresham. I stayed at The Gresham as a child. It was then a wonderous place. Very very disappointed.
