“Dublin's Best...or for that matter...anywhere's best”
Reviewed 27 October 2007

A quaint beauty on a quiet little lane. Originally built in the 1890's as the Dublin's Baggot Street Old Nurses Home the exterior is itself a work of architectual beauty.

Enter a well appointed 'lobby' that would be better described as a comfortable greeting longue and a warm staff welcoming you as if you were an old friend returning to stay with family.

The rooms and service are top draw. How about thermally heated black marble floors in the bathroom! The rooms have beautiful furnishings that are top quality....not the usual hotel cheap, but top quality./

Room service, staff, bar and eateries leave nothing to be desired.

Make a reservation....you will remember your stay

We have just spent the most amazing weekend at the Dylan Hotel in Dublin. The decor is fantastic and very unusual with a high attention to detail. The service was superb and your every need catered for. The rooms are beautifully decorated and are all individual. Very spacious rooms and good size bathrooms with lots of lovely extras such as a docking station for your ipod, bathrobes, slippers and lovely toiletries. We spent a few pleasant hours in the bar and also had a lovely meal in the restaurant. It was expensive, but a wonderful experience and I will be returning.

Its hard to know where to star when everything was so wonderful.
Lets get the basics over - staff fab - hotel fab - food to die for - room 109 just excellent - design and decoration so so pleasing - service...well they couldnt do enough for us (look out for Patrick on the front desk...top fella )
We went there for three days just to get out of London - we were meeted and greeted the second we stepped out of the cab...i was already exhausted fom a non stop talking cabbie who filled on the past 500years of irish history.
Within minutes we had checked in and shown to our room...our luggage was already there waiting for us..coats already stored in the wardrobe.
We were shown in detail our room...all I wanted was to know how to operate the flat screen and what was in the mini bar...jane sorted all the rest out......
Now I dont know about you but a very important element for me in a hotel room is the shower...this can effect my whole stay...i was not dissapointed....i marveled at its power and versitility..its piping hot water and abundance of salts...shampoos...scrubs and gels.......ooooooo i was going to be sooo clean !!!!!!!
Smelling clean and fresh we hit the resturant and WOW what a delight.....after dinner we relaxed on the outdoor heated patio and drank to the sound of water fountains while watching the flickering of romantic candles (not that I do romance)
The rest of our time was spent sightseeing..we took advice from a very informative front desk...each nite we returned we we forced to give detailed report on our adventures...this of course meant more time spent in the bar and on the patio
Who ever you are...if you decide to stay at the Dylan you will not be dissapointed....make the effort to talk to the staff, they are there to help...and enjoy helping..the staff are a important part of your experience !
ENJOY THE CRACK !

p.s..it was Janes idea to stretch out on one of your tables....nothing to do with me...blame the barman for getting her tanked up !!!!

Stumbled across this hotel, and were very thankful for discovering a gem.

We stopped at Dylan for just one night en route to Dublin Airport, booking a 'Style' room, and certainly weren't disappointed. The room was well proportioned and welcoming.It was styled in such a way that mixed old with new - no detail was overlooked.

Staff were very friendly, knowledgable, and attentive without being over-the-top, whilst there was a relaxing ambiance in the bar and restaurant to compliment this.

The hotel is situated well within walking distance from St Stephen's Green.

Definitely one to remember and go back to.

Our family of four, children ages 10 and 12 stayed at the Dylan for three nights. It was extraordinary. The hotel and rooms were fantastic, but the staff was most amazing. We hugged and kissed them when we left. It is luxury personified with the feeling of staying with friends. Among the best hotels we have ever stayed at. Book now!

I chose to book the Dylan for my boyfriend's 30th birthday as a surprise after visiting their website which made the hotel look amazing. We definately weren't disappointed!

Check in was very quick and we were shown around the hotel and the facilities in our room, which was perfect. We both loved the fabulous interior in the whole hotel and the rooms.

We ate out the first night, reservations made by the hotel staff and came back to the hotel bar for some wonderful cocktails afterwards. The second night we ate in the hotel restaurant to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The meal was wonderful.
Breakfast was also very good, we ate downstairs the first day and in our room the second day.

We did get out and about a bit as it was our first visit to Dublin, but I would have been equally as happy lazing about in the hotel. The beds are sooo comfortable!

Overall not cheap, but a wonderful treat!!!

My boyfriend and I booked our 2 night stay on a "two nights for the price of one" deal.

We were impressed immeadiately with the charming receptionist. The room was great - the ipod station with the pre programmed mixes was lovely, the heated bathroom floor a treat, lovely toiletries, fab bed - and we spent a decadent afternoon lounging in bed - ordering room service - and just chiling out. And that sums up the Dylan - it was a treat to hang out at the hotel, not simply a place to flop at the end of a hard days sightseening. Expensive - but a real treat. the only thing that would have been good would have been tea making facilities - sorry if that makes me seem plebby but I do like a good cup of tea. But - overall a fab place.
