“simply fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2010

it was my wifes 40th, so i took her to Dublin for the weekend.

i chose this hotel because it looked fantastic, and the reviews were promising.

we loved every minute of our stay, this hotel is "simply fantastic" and we would stay there again. the staff are so helpfull, so much great advice for visiting places, and restaurants.

we mentioned upon arrival it was my wifes birthday, when we returned from our first trip into town, they'd put a bottle of wine and large chocolate muffin with a candle in it in our room, such a great gesture, they really made us feel welcome.

the rooms are huge, just antastic luxury, the only small item of crticism was the toilet was crammed between the end of the large bath and wall. other than that, faultless.

getting into town was simple, a 20 minute walk, or jump on the bus right outside, so easy, and being outside of town there was no late night noise. so a great sleep every night.

My wife and I stayed at the Hampton for one night on July 10 after a trans-Atlantic flight. We were able to check in early at 9:30 a.m. and were up-graded to a suite. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was large with a fantastic bath tub and shower. The front desk staff (Getrun?) was extremely friendly and provided helpful advise on what to see and do in Dublin. The hotel is about 3/4 of a mile to St. Stephen's Green but multiple bus lines pass right by the hotel if you do not want to walk. I highly recommend the Hampton and if I returned to Dublin I would certainly stay there again.

The Hampton is a top quality hotel, very impressed. Very well designed/decorated throughout, although some may find the very dark corridors with 'mood' lighting a bit off putting. Massive TV in room, treble sized bed, very well designed bathroom with top quality suite anf fittings. Staff very attentive, helpful and friendly. The position of the hotel is sited just outside the city centre, but a regular frequent bus service stops right outside, cost €1.60 each way, but you need the exact money. A taxi to or from the city centre is about €9. Lots of free car parking space, but I would recommend you park at the front of the hotel as it seemed a bit more overlooked and secure than round the back. Overall I couldn't recommend this hotel enough, the next time I go to Dublin I'll definitely stay there.
Cost of room didn't include breakfast, I went for the smaller cooked option €8.

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.
