“will certainly stay here again...”
Reviewed 12 August 2010

Just back from 2 nights in the Hampton Hotel. Dont let the fact that it is a little out of the city centre put you off. The hotel is located in a lovely part of Dublin and the stroll ( 20 min max) is very pleasant in to St Stephens Green, also there is a bus stop right outside the front door. Our room was a little on the small side ( a minor detail really) but the bathroom was very spacious. The staff, particularly the receptionist whose name unfortunately eludes me, were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. We will certainly be staying here again.

My wife booked this hotel as a treat for my 40th Birthday, we booked a 2 night stay in a Hampton select room , but we were given a complimentary upgrade to the Luxury suite due to it being my 40th , a really nice gesture and wow what a room , large room with a huge seperate bathroom with under-floor heating which my wife just loved , 42" Plasma , wall mounted fire which just added to the rooms style..

On arrival the receptionist could not of been more helpful , very welcoming and told us all the info we needed on restaurants , bars, supermarkets and transport.. we met Bruno the hotel manager shortly after settling in. He made us welcome and even gave us a complimentary drink at the bar.. as for the food in the hotel , i would highly recommened trying it we could not fault it..

Dublin itself is expensive but its up to you how expensive you want it to be..

All in all a great hotel and Bruno and all his staff do a great job in making this hotel a luxury to stay in..

Hampton has been the first hotel I've visited, which combines the modern style of Hilton-like hotels with the charm of smaller, leisure hotels - with success. Hampton Preferred room, which we've stayed in was somewhat small for both of us along with our suitcases. So if you prefer some more elbow space, an upgrade to Hampton Select would be recommended. We chose not to upgrade, as we only stayed there for two nights and the only difference between those two rooms is the size.

The staff is out of the ordinary, topping even much more luxurious hotels. The assistance we've received throughout our stay was some of the best I have ever experienced - both with regards to what to see and do in Dublin, but also with car rental and more practical tasks.

I booked this hotel mainly due to its location as we were attending the Dublin Horse Show. When we first saw our room I was a bit surprised by how small it was - really too small for a double room. There was a small free standing wardrobe but it did not have any full length hanging space. The bathroom was in a stairwell so while it was clean and adequate for use it felt very claustrophobic. The bathroom window was very shabby - dusty with a rickety catch and needed repainting. There was an iron but nowhere to use it. The bedroom carpet had hairs from a previous guest on it and the remains of a hairband so housekeeping wasn't all it could have been. The bolster on the bed had a dark stain on it and the bedroom walls had black scuffmarks and needed repainting. We were a bit put off at this stage but we were only staying for one night so we (foolishly) decided to persevere and headed off to the horse show. Later that evening when we were getting ready to go for dinner we discovered the sink plug didn't work properly and the poor receptionist had to come to unblock it with a screwdriver. At this stage we realised we were in a Fawlty Towers situation but laughed it off and went to dinner. The real problem happened next morning at 6.30 am when we were woken by people outside our door as our room was right next door to a conference room. The sound insulation was so poor that we might as well have been at the meeting ourselves. The room we had (Room 100) should never have been used as a bedroom for guests - on the ground floor beside a conference room and away from all the other bedrooms. I have never had a worse experience in any hotel and this hotel should definitely not have been awarded four stars. When I complained that morning we were refunded 50 euro but to be honest it was little compensation for a very unpleasant stay. We would have been more comfortable sleeping in our car in the car park which was the best part of the hotel!!

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.
