“Location location!”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

The central location of this hotel was perfect. There is the Luas Tram outside the door, and the Tour buses and local buses are 30 yds away on O'Connell St.
The hotel is old in character but up to date in bedroom furnishings and the dining room and lounge bar were well appointed. We had a superior room on the 4th floor at the front (499) it was very well decorated and the bathroom was large with a corner spa bath which was wonderful after a days sightseeing. We would have preferred a King sized bed(5ft) but it was not an issue.Plenty of storage space for clothes and luggage, tea and coffee and a fridge.
The breakfast was very good and the service in the dining room was excellent. The reception staff were very welcoming,helpful and polite.
The only issue we had which was not the hotels fault was the noise from party -goers/pub drinkers late into the evening/early morning.
Apart from this we would recommend the hotel for a trip to Dublin as its location for everything was brilliant and the staff were very welcoming.

Room Tip: High floors and superior rooms.Suggest the rear of the hotel if light sleeper.

Wynn's is a charming hotel with old personal style. Rooms and corridors are beautifully decorated and furnished. There are nice old prints on the walls to build the atmosphere. My room was spacious and facing to the back alley. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel has a free WiFi which seemed to be working very well. The age of the hotel showed e.g. in the condition of the bathroom, but everything seemed to be clean and well maintained. Unfortunately there is no proper lobby in the hotel, which could sometime make things a little complicated. For a city break Wynn's offer affordable option in a central location.

We enjoy older hotels when we stay in city centers and the Wynn's offers a lot of charm and history. Room was clean, but a bit small. Somewhat noisey from street traffic, but that is to be expected in a downtown hotel. Excellent location in the heart of the city. Staff were very freindly and accomodating. Breakfast was very good. Good bar with many locals.

Stayed 3 nights in June and going back this week! perfect for solo traveller as it is close to all tourist attractions, rail and bus service. had a great small single room that was quiet and extremely clean. Only minus is the breakfast queue some mornings, that needs to be rethought. Also may not be suitable for wheelchair as there are a few steps at entrance and the porter is not always looking out for hotel patrons? However location and the fact that breakfast is included can't be beat!!

Room Tip: If you have special request, send an e-mail a day or two before arrival. They were very good about...

We stayed at the Wynn's for 2 nights, and were thrilled with the choice. While the hotel is a bit older than it may look in the pictures, the rooms were clean and spacious and the location was perfect - right across the bridge from Trinity College, Temple Bar, etc.

The hop on/hop off bus stops just at the end of the block to get you around Dublin, so no car or taxi are really needed if you stay here. There is a bar attached to the hotel and the breakfast was very good. I'd definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Request a room in the back of the hotel - those in the front can be a bit noisy.

Having a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and having undergone a €5m refurbishment (when?) one would think that this hotel would live up to the photographs on its website. Indeed the public rooms are smart but our bedroom on the fifth floor was a disappointment. The room decor was tired and dated, the shower room although clean was clearly in need of refurbishment and major attention to detail. You will find the remains of mould around the shower doors and in the wall tile grouting. The heated towel rail was broken at the electrical connection exposing wires and a downlighter in the ceiling above the electric shower had a considerably large gap around the rim making it potentially dangerous if water got in! See the attached photos.
On the positive side the staff were attentive particularly the male waiter at breakfast. He deserves a commendation. The hotel was particularly well located for the Temple Bar. Would I stay there again - No! The hotel needs to get its act together with routine maintenance and the decor in the room I stayed in was depressing.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room beforehand and be aware of noise from the adjacent hotels and bars at night.

I'm really torn writing this review. The staff were excellent, the best I've ever known in a hotel. Friendly and courteous, nothing was too much trouble. We weren't kept waiting on our arrival and our room was ready (which is a first for us as in other hotels we have been kept waiting).
On the downside the room was small and smelt of smoke even though it was meant to be a non-smoking room. The bathroom was small too but fine for one night. The room was slightly grubby, I'll post a photo of the room carpet.
We were on the 2nd floor with the luas line just below us but it wasn't too noisy with the window shut.
The hotel is in a great location, handy for all the shops and it was brilliant to go out and do some shopping and bring it back to the hotel.
The breakfast was lovely. There was no ham or cheese as you would find in most other hotels though. The cold breakfast (cereal, yogurt, bread) you served yourself.
The hot breakfast, which consisted of Full Irish, Porridge, eggs, kippers and even goats cheese and crumpets was served to the table. The toast was warm which makes a nice change. The service in the restaurant was excellent.
There was free wifi in the hotel and a tv in the room (although the channels were limited). You could hear the people in the next room turning on their sockets and flushing their toilet.
So all in all for staff and location I would stay here again, but if you are looking for a modern hotel Wynn's is not it.
