“Great value”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Looking for a place to stay at short notice while we visited a friend in town the following day I came upon the Ripley court hotel and booked same. It was located around the corner from Busaras luas stop . There was a large desk in the foyer with security guard on duty before you entered into reception area which gave us a great sense of security for when we were heading out later in the evening.
We checked into a comfortable room with good shower in bathroom. We took at short walk to the city centre for shopping and enjoyed wonderful meal in a nearby restaurant.
the breakfast the next day was plentiful, hot and tasty. It was buffet style counter service so you asked for what you required . Would definitely use the hotel again as it is very handy to luas and positioned well for shopping area.

This was my first visit to the hotel. Excellent location just off O'Connell street. Really friendly staff and the rooms were very good quality for the price. When we were leaving I left some important cards in the room and they sent them to me asap. Very impressed and will definitely go back!

This was our 4th visit to this hotel. It's excellently situated for the centre, all the sights and eating places. The main thing for us is the fact it has it's own car park. It could do with a little TLC in places but very comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic, the staff are very nice and helpful. We will be visiting again.

El hotel está bastante viejo, bien merece una renovada, los baños viejos y no muy limpios (los tradicionales cabellos en la regadera y excusado), las llaves del lavamanos poco funcionales pues no mezclan el agua, así que o tienes agua muy caliente o muy fría. Las camas muy usadas, el desayuno normal, no mucha variedad. El personal siempre muy atento y dispuesto a ayudarte, todos, desde el portero hasta la recepción pasando por el restaurant. Tiene parking privado muy seguro. Si bien la zona puede engañar en parecer un poco fea e insegura, no hay nada que temer. La limpieza de las habitaciones y exteriores es adecuada (no huele a sucio). En general mi estancia no fue desagradable. No sé si volvería.

= = = = =

The hotel is quite old, it needs a renovation urgently, not very clean bathrooms (traditional hair in the shower and toilet), unfunctional water keys in the sink, do not mix the water flow, so either you have very hot or very cold water. Widely used beds, spacious rooms, very noisy (you hear everything from your neighbor and the hall) average breakfast, not much variety. The staff always attentive and willing to help you, everyone from the doorman to the reception through the restaurant. Very secure private parking. While the area may seem a bit deceiving in ugly and insecure, there is nothing to fear. The cleanliness of the rooms and exterior is adequate (does not smell like dirty). Overall my stay was not unpleasant. Do not know if I would come back.

This was a nice little hotel. Used the Airlink to get from airport to hotel. Drops off right in front and picks up around the corner. Staff was very nice and helpful. Had a great Irish breakfast included with the room. Room was comfortable and clean. Some have complained that it was dark. Ithought it was charming and cute. The area is typical of an urban area but I never felt unsafe. Walking distance to many areas or you can catch a bus around the corner. They stored our bags while we were out before catching our flight. Would certainly stay there again if I get back to Dublin.

the hotel is about a ten minute walk from the city centre, the reception area is massive with lots of leather chairs and sofa's plus an internet station there is also a room where you can leave your luggage if your room isn't ready or you have a late flight, we were in room 123 which didn't have a view only of the roofs of other parts of the hotel, the room it's self was big and clean and tidy with a tv tea and coffee making facilities and a safe, the bathroom was of ample size and the shower was hot and powerful but both the room and bathroom are showing signs of general wear and tear, breakfast was really good with plenty of cereals to choose from plus a full Irish which was really tasty, again this area was large with two seperate eating areas, the hotel also has secure parking, all the staff were friendly and polite

Room Tip: room 123 does not have a view

Stayed at the Ripley Court Hotel with a friend, whilst attending a concert at the 02. The hotel is centrally located and has secure off street parking at 10 euro per day, which is reasonable when staying in Dublin.
First impressions on entering the hotel could be a bit of a “put off” as the reception area is quite poorly lit, my concerns however where unnecessary.
The twin room at 97 euro including breakfast was basic but clean and the bed fairly comfortable, the bathroom is a bit small but adequate and the shower was very refreshing. The breakfast wasn’t the best I’ve ever had but was still good value for money.
This is an excellent little hotel at the price we paid and I would have no hesitation booking this hotel again if on a one or two night break, for a longer stay I would probably look for something a little more luxurious.
