“Terrific staff and facilities made our stay a pleasure!”
Reviewed 27 July 2010

We stayed at the Hampton for a week preparing for a wedding and enjoying the city.
The wedding reception was held at the hotel. The food and facilities were wonderful. Staff was extremely accommodating and helped make everything run without a hitch. All their recommendations for florists, hair stylists, etc worked out perfect and we all appreciated all the helpful directions to get around town using the bus and driving. Being slightly off the downtown area was great as traffic and noise were not a problem and we could sit out on the patio and enjoy the outdoors when not shopping and sightseeing. We had a suite, the room and the bathroom were terrific! Thanks to the Staff for making the whole experience a delight.

I booked Hampton Hotel Based on Trip Advisor reviews. We stayed 3 nights in a normal room at a rate of 89 Euros a night with the Sizzling Summer sale. First of all booking at that price made me very happy. It was easy to get to from the airport via Air Coach. These coach buses leave from the airport every 30 mins and will drop you off right in front of the hotel for 8 Euros. Just make sure to tell them Sacs Hotel if they don't know Hampton Hotel. The name used to be Sacs.

The room itself was really cute and clean. I loved the fake fireplace with the fire noise. My favorite thing was the HUGH flat screen TV. I don't know how many inches that thing was but it's too bad there was a big sports event going on because the TV was awesome ! You know how some hotels buy the smallest cheapest flat screens just to keep up with the trends ? Not here. It was so nice. The toiletries in the bathroom were nice as well. I mean they were high quality not cheap stuff.

We had breakfast 2 mornings and it was so, so good ! There is something special about their potato cakes and sausage. One day they actually packed us a lunch because we were going hiking and didn't have time to run out to a store to grab anything to pack for the trek.

The only downside I would be the beds. They were not at all comfortable. Not only that but they were on the small side for 2 people even by European standards.

I will mention as others have said, the general manager Bruno ? , is really nice. He will go above and beyond to make sure you are enjoying your stay. The whole staff is friendly and very helpful.

I would recommend Hampton Hotel for sure especially if you can book one of their specials.

This was the first time we've opted for a boutique hotel over one of the big chains and we were really glad we gave it a try.

We arrived to find our room had been upgraded - hurrah! The staff at reception were very welcoming and extremely helpful throughout our stay - it was out first visit to Dublin and they made sure we had all the information (tourist and local) that we needed.

The room was well decorated, spacious and clean although there was some dust on a couple of surfaces in the bedroom. Bathroom was very spacious - great size tub/shower, huge mirror with fantastic lighting, heated floors.

The hotel is located a little out of the centre but we rather enjoyed the peace and quiet and the 20 minute walk to the hustle and bustle of Grafton Street.

We had lunch at the hotel bar on one day starter was delicious, main was ok. Bar staff were really good.

Would definitely recommend the Hampton Hotel to friends and family!

We arrived with my wife on crutches from a broken toe the previous day and got very good service from Gertude and then Lisabeth to locate a hospital after calling the local doctor. They were extremely helpful throughout finding and booking tours and events, evening bringing up the hotel menu and helping us find a hotel for the third night since they were booked!

Perhaps most impressive about our stay was our second night when we wanted to take our kids to a pub for some traditional music and dancing. The manager (Bruno) offered that we could follow him to go to a traditional Irish show that allowed kids past 8pm. While the food was forgettable, the music and dancing were both top rate and highly recommended - The Merry Ploughboy Irish Music Pub (putting review there next)!

Our room was slightly larger than most since we'd originally booked for only 2 adults so we upgraded to a suite which was fantastic in every way. The bathroom was magnificent and modern as was the room in a chic black and white theme.

We had dinner at the hotel restaurant where the food was excellent though the service depended upon your server (our waitress was very slow but helped by competent waiter). For breakfast, we walked up the street to high end supermarket for bagels and chocolate croissants in the room which were delicious.

Pros:

This is a boutique hotel, so the rooms were quite modern and well-maintained. The staff was also extremely friendly and helpful. Another nice feature is that there was a restaurant/bar in the lobby that had indoor and outdoor seating.

Cons:

Our room was tiny! Each room is different so maybe you can ask for a bigger room, but my friend had a bigger room, but her bathroom was tiny. The elevator was also tiny. We had to make 2 or 3 trips just to get our luggage up. Also keep in mind that the location of this hotel is in the suburbs - it is NOT within walking distance of the city.

pro's: nice layout (more ikea like though) - the fireplace in the room was a nice touch; very nice staff (many thanks to Gudrun);
con's: when checked in - we were given somebody else's room and charged in advance in full + deposit (instead of pre-authorization, therefore we lost money due to f/x rate) ; poor selection of breakfast (and depends also who is serving it); lack of umbrella (in a very rainy Dublin) and also slippers despite asking many times for (something we receive even in not boutique hotels); distance from downtown (in w/e the busses don't come that often); very thin walls;
Overall expensive for what you get!

After a very long direct flight from Australia we arrived at the Hampton and were immediately impressed by the friendly service of the staff and the fact they realised we were totally exhausted and would catch up the day after. The hotel might be a little bit out of the city, but in return you either get some exercise in a lovely part of Dublin or you pay a little for a bus to St Stephens Green which isn't that far. For those looking to get their washing done there is a laundrette if you head left out of the hotel and several hundred metres towards the city.

If you are looking for shops you head right once to exit from the front. There is one of the best little gourmet supermarkets I have ever seen there (fancy cheeses, meats and wines), along with some other services that is more than adequate. The other side feels more deserted but you are really not that far from anything if you put some effort in.

You can tell a good area from the people walking with you into the city, driving out of sidestreets and generally pick up the vibe from your surrounds. This area feels like the leafy North Shore of Sydney or any other fine suburbs in Australia. It is such a relaxing place, that it differs considerably from the hustle and bustle of Temple Bar!

The foyers are dark but this shouldn't be a major issue but I guess that is matter of taste. If you know where your room is no problem, but perhaps they might like to consider some more lighting. The rooms have great TV's, comfortable beds, heated bathroom tiles, however there are no fridges so you will have to either stock up at room temperature or head out. We became used to the no fridge idea and had no problems with it. The room certainly had a great feel and we did spend more time in it (due to some terrible jet lag) and another major plus was air conditioning which made it even more comfortable. We had a front facing room so there was some traffic noise but nothing terribly excessive.

We ordered the breakfast option on the internet and were told we could have whatever we wanted. The full irish option was superb and the staff got to know us and vice-versa. Due to our jet lag we were awake hours prior to breakfast and were normally alone in the room. Certainly quiet but it was very relaxing.

We saw the sign "Vanilla nightclub" coming soon, and this could be a bonus for some, especially if the noise levels are well contained. The bar and outdoor area was well patronised in the afternoons and nights and it had a good "vibe" about it.

The hotel is very close to an Aircoach stop to Dublin aiport and this is highly recommended for 9 euros. Once you escape the city proper it doesn't take long at all. We enjoyed the walks towards St Stephens Green, and it made you appreciate the city even more.

Great city, fantastic people and a lovely hotel to cap off the experience.
