Hotel Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin
Ranked #57 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Stayed for two nights - had booked with an AA deal. Didn't eat or drink in hotel since we were out and about town the entire time. Very pleasant staff at reception. Room was on the small side - actually would have thought it best for 1 person, given it was a deal we didn't bother asking for a change since we were literally just sleeping there but would have if we needed to spend time in the room. Shower in bath was fab - one of those very large shower heads in ceiling, lovely! Room was extremely fresh and clean, bed was comfortable. You may want to ask for a room at rear since facing out onto O'Connell Street was noisy. Our AC didn't work so we did need to leave the window ajar slightly. Looks like you can use the gym for €10 per day and parking is to be paid for.

We have stayed at this Hotel many times and every visit is excellent from start to finish. From the moment of checking in by the wonderful and very helpful staff to the beautiful bedrooms, our experience is always first class. Would recommend this hotel to couples and families with children as everyone is catered for to the highest standard. We are looking forward to our next visit to Dublin and the Gresham.

Our recent stay at the Gresham was superb. A very warm welcome met us. The staff were very helpful. Room was superb. Couldn't ask for a better location. Staff could not do enough for you. I would highly recommend to stay at the Gresham when in Dublin.:-)

We stayed at the Gresham this past St. Patrick's Day weekend. Even though the hotel was busy the staff remained friendly and efficient. We loved the location- right in the middle of downtown Dublin. The hotel staff went above and beyond for us. One day we left to drive to Cliffs of Moher... 30 minutes into our trip we realized with all the hustle and bustle of getting our 18 month old son in the car- we left our backpack which had our wallets, passports and basically everything important to us! We called the hotel and they sent an employee down to search the parking garage for our backpack. They found it and kept it behind a locked door until we were able to return and collect it! We are so thankful for their willingness to help us! If we ever find ourselves in Dublin again- we will definitely be staying at the Gresham Hotel.

My wife and I recently spent a Friday night in Dublin and chose the Gresham. Having stayed at another hotel the other side of the river we wanted to stay somewhere new. The only criteria was a hotel with a car park.

The Gresham had this and a whole lot more. From the moment we arrived we felt at ease. ALL of the staff we came into contact with were very courteous and friendly. We had a deluxe room which was very comfortable, quiet and spotless. We only had breakfast in the hotel but that was lovely.

Would reccomend this hotel any time and look forward to a return stay.
