On arrival ,reception very helpful. My friends and I went shopping and on return went up to our room through a series of dark corriders. Room was average and bathroom tiny.
Had been looking forward to dinner but food was average to awful. I had a few minute slithers of smoked salmon and one of my friends has the goat's cheese pie which consisted of goats cheese squeezed into a pie dish with afew pine nuts and tomatoes squeezed in also. Lobster for main was fine but the treacle tart and raspberry ice cream for dessert was inedible!. The waiter asked if I had enjoyed my untouched dessert and when i said no he ignored me.
Breakfast was awful, the poached eggs were hard as rocks and by the taste, i think the chef poached them in vinegar with a dash of water!
Will not be going back as there is a true five star not very far from the dylan!

I'm late writing this review but it had to be put on paper the experience we encountered in this hotel.
We had the pleasure of staying in this hotel in December and brought clients out for dinner, from the start to finish the experience was something else. Need to mention Barry who was so efficent and Madison who on check is an asset to this hotel :-)
The rooms were luxurious, spotless and dinner that night was superb. Breakfast cannot be faulted. This hotel is tucked away you would nearly pass it but a visit is a must.

Myself and my partner booked to stay at The Dylan after reading about the hotel in a sunday magazine. After reading all the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor we booked to stay in one of the Signature Rooms.
When we arrived at around 17.00 we were met by hotel manager to tell us that they had overbooked and that they were transferring us to the Four Seasons. We found this really disappointing as i had confirmed our booking twice only a week before our stay to make sure everything was ok.
The Four Seasons was extremely nice but the room wasn't to the same standard as we had originally booked and also we didn't feel we had brought the correct attire as when we went down to the vodka bar in the evening, all the men had dinner jackets on and the women evening dress. This made us feel very uncomfortable and out of place.
I would advise anyone who wishes to stay at The Dylan to triple check their booking before their trip otherwise they could be left feeling extremely disappointed.

As we stayed at the Dylan in January we got a good room rate. The room was nice and we liked the fact that it had movies, fully stocked mini bar and a heated bathroom floor. The bed/mattress was of a very high quality.

Room service was quick and the food lovely. Disappointed with service at breakfast but all in all the stay was well worth the money we paid.

One improvement the hotel could make is with the doors slamming near the bedrooms. We were woke up at 6am with doors repeatedly slamming in neighbouring rooms.

Myself and my husband decided to treat ourselves to a overnight stay at our favourite hotel between Christmas and New Year and once again we were absolutely delighted with Dylan. On arrival we were very warmly greeted by the reception staff and were thrilled to be upgraded to the Signature Suite. The room was massive and lush. I thought the bed looked a little short, but on closer inspection it was just because it was sooooo wide that it just looked a bit short. It was very comfortable too. The bathroom was great with a huge shower and a bath so big you could nearly swim lengths in it. Luxury is relaxing in a deep hot bubble bath with a g&t and watching tv!! We had a couple of drinks in the bar, the strawberry daquaris are to die for. Breakfast was delivered to our room and was fab. Once again, we have not one single negative thing to say about this wonderful hotel. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for some luxury and a home away from home.

Reviewed 22 December 2009

This is a simply fantastic hotel - we enjoyed our stay immensely. The rooms are stylish and elegant, and with fabulously comfy beds. The bar is fantastic, with a great range of drinks and house cocktails (try the one called bramble!). As for the restaurant, what can I say - the food is GORGEOUS! If you want a bit of peace while you're there, take time out in the "library" - a very relaxing way to spend a few hours in the afternoon.
The most impressive thin about the Dylan is however, the staff - they are brilliant. Very friendly, very helpful, and very attentive - but not in an intrusive way. I couldn't praise them more.
The hotel is in a quiet, georgian area, only a 15-20 min walk (along a straight road) from the main shopping/pub-restaurants area off Grafton Street, so you're not too far away from all the nightlife if you want to spend the evening out, or shop during the day Overall we were very impressed, and we'll definitely be going again.
