just outside the lovely noisy area, the hotel is very well located with walking distance to all the major attractions. the room are very large & comfortable. 2 issues to be ware - no scenic view from room and no sport facility at hotel. the crew was very friendly and helpful

Room Tip: no special tip. maybe better view on even number rooms!

First off, I'm not typically a critical reviewer. The location is very good - better than the Doubletree but maybe not quite as good as the Westin...
The staff is wonderful. There is a very helpful female from Hungary at the reception who is an angel and an Asian bartender who was top notch!
The breakfast buffet was quite large and good, though bigger isn't always better...
The bathroom was fantastic! I read someone felt it was too dark. Maybe the lights were dimmed... which is awesome for a peaceful bath.
Now the negatives: This place is quite expensive...too expensive for the following problems.
People were regularly having trouble getting the elevator card key reader to work. We'd just sit on the ground floor inserting and reinserting the card trying to get it to work. I ran a bath and orange sediment water came out for a bit. I don't know who is responsible for that, and I doubt it's a common problem.... but it was pretty gross/shocking.
The main problem is... the internet. People in several reviews have complained about it. It is junk. We had some business to take care of, and couldn't. So we used their antiquated business center (a well worn computer) and it literally took 10 minutes to do about 2-3 minutes of work. Why won't they fix their shoddy internet? We weren't watching movies. We weren't hanging out on the internet. However, it's 2014 and people need reliable internet service ... And this place is way too expensive for that. And get a better business center. Hostels do better than theirs.
So a great staff, sub-par infrastructure.
(I'm repeatedly trying to post this and I can't because of the internet.... FAIL!)

We have a business class room and it is quite lovely. Nicely decorated and very clean. It has both a separate shower and a tub which is a nice feature. The staff have been very friendly and helpful both pre-visit and during our stay. We arrived early and appreciated the ability to check in a little early so we could recover from our red eye flight. The front desk person was helpful in pointing out where key attractions of the city are and recommending places to eat.

Location wise, you will be within walking distance to anything in the city. Location is very close to St. Patrick Cathedral. And very close is the city's oldest "chipper".

It is virtually impossible to style dark brown hair in a hotel room and bathroom with dark brown walls. In addition to this poorly thought out design feature, the room had small but intensely bright overhead recessed lighting. which means that no matter where you stand to access your clothes, you are standing in your shadow and can't see much of anything. Whoever designed these rooms certainly never cared much for creature comfort. I give this hotel a 2 rating because it has a good location, was clean and had good breakfasts.

Dear Lucy Beale P.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review of The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Dublin.
I am glad that you found our location and Super Buffet Breakfast good throughout your stay but I am disappointed to read that you had a few issues with your room in regards to the design and lighting. We do offer guests with high definition pictures on our own website as well as partner travel agents in order to give to all guests the chance to find the best place to stay in Dublin.
All feedback is taken in to consideration (positive or negative), as other TripAdvisor contributors will understand, design is a question of taste.
In any Radisson Blu brand hotel, please dial One Touch Service during your stay in order to let the team know your requirement. Here at the Radisson Blu Royal in Dublin, we do have dark cream rooms as well as Light Cream Rooms.
Thank you again for your comment.
With Kind Regards, Francois

Hotel seems recently updated - was very clean and quiet. It was in walking distance to all the sites in the area - close to Christchurch and St. Patrick's. Secure onsite car park with reasonable overnight rate. Only complaint is that the room was very dark and the bed was hard as a rock. The color scheme is modern and pretty, but made for very dark rooms at night. However, room was well appointed with everything you could need.
