“Very good Radisson”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2008

Stayed here for 2 days with my family in connecting rooms. It was a very good stay but somewhat expensive, even for Dublin standards.

The hotel is brand new and has a great design on the inside and is perfectly located. Close to everthing, but in a relatively quiet street. Nice!

The rooms look great and are of average size. Good beds and nice batrooms. The restaurant is very good.

Would go back if staying in Dublin.

  • Liked — location and design
  • Disliked — crowded feel of the hotel at times

Spend a long weekend in Dublin spending three nights in this hotel. Weather was great for September!

No real complaints about the hotel. It is modern, clean, well furnished with helpful staff. Somehow a little clinical. I think we would have preferred something a little more quirky.

Front of house and restaurant staff totally non-Irish as far as I could tell. All keen to help.

Hotel location is good. On southside five minutes walk from Temple Bar, Grafton Street and other attractions

Decided to upgrade to a “Business Class” room on arrival – double bed, larger room on top floor. Trouble was my partner couldn’t handle the all consuming brown décor – so we move to another “Business Class” two floors down with twin beds. Much the same size – only lighter décor and with a much smaller flat screen TV.

Only ate breakfast in the hotel. Pretty good with a wide range of options.

On the whole an above average hotel experience.

  • Liked — Clean and modern
  • Disliked — One one lift working

This hotel is in a brilliant location for visiting Dublin especially if your want to be in the heart of the city but dont want the noise of the centre. Very modern, great design, rooms were spot on very comfortable and spotless. Staff very helpful, smiley and friendly. Quiet area but only 2 streets away from great night life and shopping. We would definately stay there again.

We stayed at the Radisson SAS Royal Dublin for our 3 nights in Dublin, starting off our 12 day drip to Ireland. It was great! The location was wonderful... the hotel is CLEAN (and I'm VERY picky about hotels being clean)... staff friendly. I really can't think of a negative.

  • Liked — Clean and comfortable
  • Disliked — I guess the decor isn't to my taste... but that's about the worst I can say!

This was the first hotel on our 20 day trip to Ireland. It was the best. My husband, myself and 15 year old granddaughter, had a corner one bedroom suite. I booked by phone with the Radisson Hotel chain. It was €245 a night which included a great breakfast. There was a €40 charge for the roll away bed for GD which I was not informed about when I booked, but was notified before arrival. Still worth it. The room included a foyer, king bedroom and bath, seperate 1/2 bath. Large dining room and living room area where GD slept. The hotel is a short walk to St. Patrick's Cathedral in one direction and St. Stephens Green in the other. O'Connoll St. Grafton St. Temple Bar, Trinity College all close by. Absolutely would stay there again.

At a rate of 215 EUR for a Business Class room (mid-week), the Radisson SAS Royal is clearly at the top end of hotel prices I paid. Given its fine, but not stand-out location, the price is even more hard to swallow.

Nevertheless, aside from sleekly designed rooms and one of the best breakfast buffets I ever had regarding choice and quality, it was worth the money, especially bearing in mind that hotel prices in Dublin are extremely high, anyway.

Upon arrival, one of the few downpoints was that my request for a non-connecting room made with my reservation was not fulfilled and, as the hotel was almost fully booked, they could only offer a smoking room without connecting door, which I did not want. Doors were thick (or neighbor quiet), however, so that turned out to be no problem.

Our Business Class room on the second floor had not much of a view: just a courtyard, but at least it was nicely laid out with ponds and plants.

Beds were extremely comfy, Internet access was free of charge, there was a Nespresso coffee maker and water was waiting for us upon arrival. Bathroom featured separate shower and bathtub and very nice bathroom amenities by Anne Semolin were provided.

Evening turndown service, despite advertised as a Business Class perk, never showed up.

All in all a great stay, but they should deliver those Business Class features they let their guests pay for.

  • Liked — Breakfast buffet
  • Disliked — Missing turndown service
