“About as good as it gets”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I stayed here for a conference and was very impressed. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was just about the best I have ever seen in a hotel - particularly the shower. The staff were really helpful even in the face of odd requests (I needed a dentist while I was staying). The breakfasts were varied and should cater for nearly all tastes! It's pricey if you are paying your own way but I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Dublin who can afford it.

I recently stayed at this hotel for two nights. The hotel is centrally located and easy to find. There are many things within walking distance. Our room was clean, neat, and nicely decorated. The bathroom was one of the best I've seen in many hotels throughout all of Europe. It had a very large bathtub and a walk-in shower that was lovely. Our room was ready upon our arrival. The halls were quiet and clean. The housekeeping staff members were attentive and considerate. The breakfast was outstanding! There was a variety of cold breakfast items available, in addition to hot items available for order. The front desk staff members were especially helpful when we needed to arrange a taxi for early the next morning.

I would stay here again and highly recommend this hotel to others as well.

Came to Dublin for a long weekend & stayed at the Radisson blu on golden lane. The hotel was a short walk from all the attractions, Graffton street being the closest. Had a lovely time & the staff were extremely friendly & couldn't be more helpful. The rooms were spacious & the shower was lovely after a long day visiting the sights. The Guinness storehouse is a must.

We are staying here for four days while exploring Ireland, and we love the hotel. The Radisson is convenient to the trendy Temple Bar area. The front desk manager recommended Gallaghers Boxby for a quick bite to eat last night, a twenty minute walk at most, and it was wonderful. The modern rooms come with very comfortable beds, a large tub and shower (unfortunately located in close proximity to the toilet, but such is life.) The breakfast buffet was simply outstanding, with long tables loaded with a huge range of delightful food. We are exploring the coastal areas by car, and the garage prices are steep, so if you are simply visiting Dublin, skip the car. The hotel is in the city center so you can walk to shops, historical places, and restaurants with ease.

We stayed here at the end of a 16 day trip through Scotland and Ireland. The room was ready, clean, and comfortable.
Breakfast was lovely, with lots of options, and hot items custom cooked upon request.
The staff gladly brought it to the table when it was ready; no waiting at the counter.

Great kudos to the hotel front de ask staff. They were always available to help. Help needed with the internet? Sure.
Help getting a car pick up in London? Sure! Use the hotel phone, please . We will gladly dial if you wish. Need a printout of a flight confirmation? We can do that!
They were accommodating and gracious.

We have been here on a weekend trip in June 2014. If you go to Dublin, this would be a great place to stay at. Not far from center (5min. to TempleBar) but also quiet as it is located a bit behind the main roads. Very warm welcome at the reception desk, good breakfast, very clean room + a nice bathroom. Also great having a drink at the bar; gentle waiters, good beer and even big screen live soccer for the world cup 2014 .... what do you need more after a day in Dublin :-)
