5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Just back from a fabulous three day trip in Dublin, staying two nights at the Blu Royal Hotel.

We arrived before our rooms were ready Tuesday morning (as expected) but were checked in and left our luggage so we could go off and sightsee.

Staff were very helpful, friendly, professional and efficient throughout our stay, offering maps, advice where to shop, sorting out online check-in for return flights and putting our two rooms on the same floor so our two families travelling together were near each other.

Our twin-room was spacious and well appointed. The bathroom with large bath (plus shower spray) and shower with waterfall head (plus another shower spray) was absolutely lovely.

Breakfast wasn't included in our rate, but there were plenty of places close by to pick up a coffee and danish or sit and have a more substantial meal. There was tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the room, so was easy to have a drink before heading out.

The hotel was well placed to visit all the sights of the city and we really put this to the test; doing everything on foot over the three days and managing to visit St.Patrick's, Christ Church, Guinness, Jameson, Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Chester Beatty Library, the Spire, Ha'Penny Bridge, Grafton Street (afternoon tea at Bewley's twice!), St.Stephen's Park, and the National Museum of Archaeology (twice!)

I would definitely use the Blu Royal again for any future visits to Dublin, for its lovely rooms, superb staff and perfect location to sightsee from.

The Radisson Blu is an excellent choice for a stay in Dublin. 7 Adults traveled from the US with 3 rooms between us. The hotel is less than a 25 minute gorgeous walk from Trinity College, Book of Kells, Grafton Street, a 3-story mall, and Temple Bar. Breakfast was included and offers a variety of wonderful foods. Make sure you do not oversleep and miss breakfast which ends at 10:00 am. Order room service! But beware that there is a service fee for "each" room of $5.00. Excellent hotel!

We got into Dublin without a suitcase, the staff (Sean) worked hard to track it down from the States. He was also very helpful in pointing us in the right direction for attractions. The rest of the staff was so helpful accommodating us for our holiday. Great staff and location central to everything in Dublin

The hotel is nice, clean and updated and it's about a ten minute walk from many of Dublin's attractions, including Trinity College and Temple Bar. It's also about 5 minutes from the bus stop, which services the airport (Airlink 747 bus for $7 a piece) and other attractions around the city.

The staff was also very friendly and helpful in giving us advice on sightseeing in Dublin.

As a bonus, if you're a Club Carlson Gold Elite member, the free breakfast is one of the best hotel breakfasts I've had. If you're not a member, there was a charge but you may consider it because it had everything from a full Irish breakfast to meats and cheeses, fruits and pastries.

Stayed here in a 1 bedroomed suite. Could not fault the hotel - particularly the staff. They are extremely welcoming and accommodating. It isn't cheap but was worth it on this occasion. Parking on site which was great.

Room Tip: For a family - a 1 bedroomed suite is great - lots of space.

It was a fantastic experience. Great breakfast. The room (business one) was spacious with a wonderful bathroom. The internet service was enough for me, used to check mail and browse the web. The location is very good, near the St. Patrick church. A very quiet place.

We stayed here for three days and found the service and hotel outstanding. Staff all friendly and exceeding our expectations whenever we asked for assistance. The hotel is modern and while standard rooms are small very comfortable. We moved to a junior suit and found it more comfortable for my family of three. We would stay at this hotel again as it was also near the bust tourist area of a Grafton St and not far from Temple Bar ..safe area.

Room Tip: City views so to speak are at the front of the hotel
