Reviewed 16 January 2014

We arrived early and asked if we could leave luggage until check in time.The young lady said she would check if a room was available which it was,Good start.The room was spacious and spotlessly clean.Staff on daek and on duty in foyer were really helpful at all times.The Writers Lounge is a great place to eat or have a drink,.Get a window table and watch Dublin go by.Have stayed here on several occasions mostly to go to theatre and the Gresham has always come up trumps. Will be back

Room Tip: ask for large quiet room

Just returned from a weekend at the Gresham hotel and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff, accommodation and the food. Everyone went out of their way to make sure there was nothing we needed or wanted especially at Toddy's restaurant.

I can't wait for an opportunity to return

Room Tip: Request a room near a lift. Can be a lengthy walk

Excellent Hotel, service second to none and everywhere was spotlessly clean . Central location with taxi rank, Luas and bus available on the doorstep for trips further afield. Very comfortable lobby and bar areas.

Room Tip: worth paying for an upgrade to rooms facing O'Connell St. with large windows

Although Ireland is greatly changed over the last few years when you travel whether you are an international visitor or just from down the road you are still looking for a céad míle fáilte (a hundred thousand welcomes) and a hotel with an old world romantic Irish feel.
The Gresham Hotel ticks all the boxes.

Located smack bang in the city centre close to the vibrant Henry St shopping malls and only a short walk to Grafton St it could not be more central & vibrant. The minute you step inside the door however you leave all the hustle and bustle of the big city behind and you feel like you're drifting away to a quaint hotel by the Cliffs of Moher.

The historic building oozes charm both inside and out with quirky old world features throughout. Don't let the buildings vintage fool you though, the rooms are recently renovated, modern & cater for all your needs. You could hear a pin drop as you snooze the night away which is not always the case with Dublin City Hotels.
Parking can be accessed from the hotel and and overall with the room rate included is very reasonable.
This Hotel is a treat not an extravagance, so when in Dublin I highly recommend you rest up in this iconic landmark.

Room Tip: I have stayed there many times and have never had any issues with street noise.

An ideal location to stay in for city centre activites. Luas and Taxi service on the street and henry Street Shopping right outside. Breakfast was delicious and had an excellent selection. Rooms were a little warm but service staff helped with Air Conditioning immediately. I would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms are small but it is a city centre hotel.
