If you are able to book off peak and stay at least 3 nights and select the breakfast option, it’s an incredible value. The location is fantastic…walking distance to many of Dublin’s attractions, pubs and restaurants. The hotel has an old charm and everything is updated and very well appointed. The breakfast is excellent featuring cold and hot options…top notch. Best of all is the staff…all going above & beyond. Would certainly return if coming again to Dublin.

What a lovely couple of days. It is in a fantastic location in central Dublin, close to museums, galleries and other sights. Buswells is a beautiful Georgian hotel. As if that were not enough, the staff could not have been more helpful and nicer - from the very kind and pleasant desk staff to the attentive and friendly breakfast room servers and the bar staff. Thanks as well to the room staff. This is not a corporate/anonymous hotel. Thank you so much

Perhaps we ordered the wront thing or we sat in the wrong space for our meal, but it was somewhat of a harmiong spot to rest after viewing an exhibit on William Bitler Yeats. As an aside, there were four ladies lunching across from us having which was entertaining. Our food was okay, nothing to write home about, but perhaps staying here would have change our thinking.

Overall good stay but the radiators were not on so we had to use a heater to get some warmth in the room. The staff were quite slow in getting things ready too but we got early check in which was really nice. central location too and massive room for 3 which was great.

I used to love this place. I am Autistic and it is so lovely and calming. But, I was advised that I cannot take my support dog with me. I just wanted to sit quietly and drink tea in this lovely environment. He would have snuggled in beneath a sofa and gone pretty much invisibile!

Bitesized Banter wrote a review Dec 2023
Edinburgh, United Kingdom9 contributions3 helpful votes
This is an absolute gem in a beautiful old Georgian building in one of the most civilised and affluent parts of Dublin. The hotel is beautifully decorated with period furnishings in the public areas and practical more modern stuff in the bedrooms. There is beautiful bar and restaurant frequented during the day by ladies who lunch and assorted oldies with time and money to spare. And early evening it’s a hang out for TDs (Irish politicos), their attendant flunkies, journos and other hangers on. Food and drinks were superb- especially the breakfasts! All the staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. Overall, a great experience. My dad used to stay here 50 years ago and he loved it. I’m sure he still would - it has moved on with the times while still retaining an old fashioned charm, elegance and personality missing from so many famous old hotels now run by global mega chains.

Great location, great staff and generally a quaint and cozy vibe to the place that I really enjoyed. My queen bed room was very small but comfortable with an excellent bed. Only suggestion I have is do something about the stairs at the front of the hotel that are an absolute slippery menace when wet! I’m not sure the caution sign they put out is sufficient. Saw a woman fall flat on her back while I was there (and that was on a rare occasion it wasn’t raining!)
