“Everything about our stay in the Ashling was excellent :)”
Reviewed 14 December 2011

We are a couple aged between 22 and 25 and stayed here for 2 nights during the week. On arrival were greeted by very friendly and helpful reception staff.

We stayed in the deluxe superior king room which we were blown away by as the room was very spacious and comfortable, had a balcony with a great view of the Guinness factory and a huge bathroom with two sinks, bath and separate walk in rain shower.

The location of the hotel is great because you are less than a 5 minute Luas trip away from the city centre, the Luas costs €1.50 one way or €2.90 return for an adult to the city centre. You are also within a very short walking distance of the Guinness factory, Heuston station and Pheonix Park.

The Ashling also has two great restaurants incase you feel like eating in or room service.

Room Tip: Spend that little bit extra and stay in a deluxe superior king room

Return to the Ashling for a few days break before Christmas ! This is no longer a Best Western but the standards have been maintained with a couple of minor hiccups. After a 45 minute bus ride from the airport to Heuston Station you have a short walk across the bridge to the hotel. You also can catch a LUAS tram into the city centre (about a 10 minute ride) from outside the station. We arrived at 9am from an early (very early !) flight and were checked into our room straight away. Great ! However the previous guests towels were still in the bathroom, but a call to reception had the bathroom cleaned straight away. The staff are just fantastic and nothing is too much trouble for them , they are out to make your stay enjoyable. I thought the Irish breakfast was smaller than on our previous stays - sure, you can go back for more - but who wants to appear greedy !
I must mention the Millenium Bar two doors down the street - nothing to do with the hotel but it has great Guinness and a great landlord - the drinks have to be the cheapest around !

Room Tip: Go for a 'superior' room - well worth the extra.

The best thing to me about this hotel is the convenient location to the train station, which is just a block or less away. The Luas line (monorail tram line) runs right in front of hotel to bring people downtown into the heart of Dublin city! The decor inside the hotel lobby, restaurant and bar and bedrooms is modern and nice however that doesn't make up for the lack of heat in the bedroom, which was quite chilly, even after having someone look at it and reset everything! Also, one must watch extremely carefully the rate being charged at check-out. Be careful and double check your rate and bill!

Room Tip: Ask for a warm room facing the front and the river!

We stayed there for 4 nights during thanksgiving 2011. Not stylish on the exterior, but nice and modern on the inside. The rooms were comfortable, not small like a lot of European hotels. We took a rail excursion that left 6:45 AM, and it was a 5 minute walk. It is also convenient to the Museum of Modern Art and the Guiness Brewery and Storehouse. Dublin is a great walking city, and it was about a 20-30 minute walk from the great museums near the center of Dublin. We would stay there again.

The best thing about the Ashling is the lovely service. I have stayed there and the rooms are voluminious and very well appointed. I have been attending the Ashling for the last few months for conferences etc and the staff are always very pleasant and helpful. Good value for the location etc (and they seem to offer a variety of good deals), the carvery lunch is also yummy, and the bar serves lovely scones and other buns for a morning meeting.....the only drawback is accessibility as I could not locate any toilet facilities on the ground floor, but otherwise excellent.

Room Tip: we did get an upgrade facing over Dublin with the biggest bed ever at no extra cost!

This hotel is a stone trow away from Heustom station and also close to Guiness. The people at reception were friendly and the breakfast was ok but my room smelled old and a bit mouldy. I stayed for one night and that was OK but would not have liked to stay here longer.

We were booked into this hotel by a tour packager that we used for a self drive vacation in Ireland. When we arrived we requested that the hotel upgrade us to a "deluxe" room. We were willing to pay for the upgrade. the desk clerk did no at no charge. the room had been recently rennovated and was very nice as well as being quite spacious. The lobby bar was nice with good appointments and comfortable seating. the service was bit slow but acceptable. The only thing we could have wished better was the attached car park which was quite cramped and tough to negoiatiate. It was fortunate that we had a small car. Since it is in central Dublin, it was bit tough getting there and to the airport the next day.

Room Tip: Be sure to have a GPS navagation system (Sat-Nav) to assist you in getting there.
