“Great People, Great Stay!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2010

The staff were the highlight of our stay. . .

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel while trying to relocate from Canada. We chose this hotel for it's reasonable price as well as it's proximity to University College Dublin. The hotel itself is very modern and stylish. It appeared to have just been renovated. We arrived well before check in time yet we were given our room right away. We were also upgraded to a larger room free of charge. Throughout our stay the staff were extremely helpful and courteous with all questions we had.

The hotel is located about 20 minute walking distance from the City Centre which includes (Temple Bar, Grafton Street, O'Connell Street etc) and it was great to be able to walk or take the bus back and forth with ease and return for a peaceful drink or meal at the hotel.

The hotel bar and restaurant were very good as well with a good selection of food at reasonable prices.

Overall we would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a clean, modern hotel but who doesn't mind walking to get to the major tourist attractions in the Dublin city centre.

We chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly staff member who gave us a thorough overview of Dublin and answered our questions about bus passes. She even provided an information packet with some Dublin history and recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing.

The rooms were terrific. Spacious and very clean with modern touches like a huge flatscreen TV, DVD player (but no DVDs) and a remote-control fireplace. The bathroom was large and almost luxurious. The bar and sitting areas were spacious and well designed. Room service was tasty; we especially liked the Irish cheese plate.

The only drawback is that it's not in the center of town, but this is easily overlooked since many buses stop right outside. For travel to/from the airport, take the Aircoach, which picks up and drops off just outside the hotel. Roundtrip ticket is €14.

The suburb of Donnybrook has plenty to offer. There is a gourmet supermarket just down the road (with its own restaurant on the second floor), as well as a pharmacy and several pubs.

We loved this hotel and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Recommendation: Elephant & Castle (Temple Bar) for breakfast; try the Irish pinhead oatmeal.

We were greeted by the most amazing hotel receptionist we have ever met! Gudrun. Even before checking us in she asked if we had visited Dublin before and when we said no, she materialised maps and a dummys guide compiled by the hotel staff of the best places to go, recommended restaurants and bars etc. Then she guided us through the map of what buses to take into the city and marked all the dropping off and picking up points. She also marked all the best bars and restaurants. She went well over her call of duty! Very impressed. She then upgraded our room, even better! The room was gorgeous, a nice size with a massive flat screen tv. The bathroom was bright and spacious with heated flooring and a double washbasins. A full size bath and shower. It was all very lovely. Yes as a previous reviewer has stated the hallways are dark with low level lighting - literally the lights are at the bottom of the walls! But this all adds to the ambience of the hotel. Breakfast was lovely we had the egg benedict with smoked salmon - highly recommend it!

This is a great place to stay, yes it is a bit out of town, but the walk is pleasant and if you feel tired at the end of the day you can catch the local bus back, it stops right outside the hotel. The airport bus stop is right outside as well. The rooms have everything in them, i just loved the modern style to this hotel. the staff were excellent and friendly, what more can i say, we were away 5 weeks in the UK and this was one of the best hotels

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.
