We stayed at the Hampton for two nights in June 2010.
The Hotel has a boutique type feel, with modern rooms. Ours was the standard Hampton Preferred, located at the back of the Hotel and very quiet. We had two excellent nights sleep.
There was a large modern bathroom providing usual comforts like hairdryer, shower gel shampoo etc. Large LCD TV in bedroom with DVD player. Free rental of DVDs available. Tea & Coffee facilities . Large very comfortable bed.
The hotel fronts a fairly busy main road although is set back enough for the traffic noise not to be intimidating. At the front of the hotel there’s also a nice covered seating veranda which is nice when in the sun of an evening.
About 20 mins walk to St Stephen’s Green, which is at the edge of the main town centre, where we hopped on the city sightseeing red bus. We bought the tickets from hotel reception. There are plenty of buses that stop just outside the hotel if you prefer, including the fast coach service to and from the airport.
The people at the reception were extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
The bar/come restaurant is very pleasant. Bar staff very friendly. We had one evening meal which was very good. Bar & food prices not cheap but not expensive either & compared to similar hotels / bars. Dublin, in general I found expensive compared to London, except for the hotel which is comparable.
The bar area had entertainment on both nights we stayed and was quite good.
Can’t fault the hotel at all really. Would definitely be my first choice if ever visiting Dublin again.
All in all very pleased with my choice of hotel which was largely down to the comments I found on Tripadvisor before booking.
