The Buswell Hotel is right in the middle of Dublin on a beautiful street with some shops but quiet. Walking to the right is Trinity College and to the left your a block away from Grafton St. The rooms are small but have everything you need to have an enjoyable stay. The rooms are all different sized and there's nothing...

While we had numerous options for hotels in the Dublin area, my family and I were extremely happy with our experience at the Buswells Hotel. As we often say, "once we find something we like, we always stick to that hotel." I will be sure to stay here again in the future should I ever have the chance to visit...

Where will we meet? Buswells is central. At least we will get a seat and something pleasant to eat while we chat....... And so it was. Just as described. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Nice surroundings ... see photo. And good quality, freshly made sanwiches for a hasty lunch. Nice place.

Stayed in this hotel for one night in early April and was generally quite impressed. I arrived to check in rather early around 1pm but that was no problem at Reception the single room was ready and although quite small it was spotlessly clean with a recently refurbished ensuite of reasonable size. The staff were very friendly and helpful and...

The buswells hotel's location is perfect for access to city center. staff was friendly and very accommodating. We arrived early morning and they were able to give us a room after a brief wait. I fell in love with the decor of the hotel with its many fireplaces and small quaint rooms for tea and conversation. Our room was lovely....

Really great location, a central location but just far enough from the hustle and bustle to be unaffected by the noise. A brilliantly old school hotel where you have to leave your key with reception when you're heading out into town. A vintage decor but modern appliances. Staff are very helpful.

The step up from B&Bs to a proper hotel at the end of our trip was a welcome relief. Buswells combines fine service with classic Irish hospitality and a good location near St. Steven's Green. Public rooms and bedroom were comfy. Check-in was friendly but a bit confused for some reason, I think the IT system was playing up a...

I hadn't been to Buswells for a while and took a work colleague there for lunch. It was as good as I remember it to be, great service, great selection of bar food and tranquil surroundings. The interior is probably old-fashioned in style to some tastes, but it's well-maintained and you immediately feel relaxed and comfortable. I could have happily...

A nice and centrally located hotel in the heart of Dublin. It has an old-fashioned feel and has a very nice lounge in which to sit and relax. The menu for the lounge area offers the standard range of bar food and the staff are great.

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Buswells Hotel- by far the most welcoming and with the best customer service. You can't beat the location- within walking distance to most major points of interest within downtown Dublin.
