Genuinely impressed with the helpfulness of every staff member we encountered during our stay. From the guy in the car park who helped us get into the hotel, to the painter who held the lift for us on way to breakfast on Saturday morning. As I mention breakfast, I have to recommend the porridge and that's something I never thought...

Stayed here on business for one night. The rooms are comfortable and clean although my air con unit made loud gurgling noises most of the night and it wasn't even switched on so sleep quality wasn't great. The food is good but not exceptional although the service was very good. Staff here are very polite and efficient. I was here...

We've stayed here for 5 years straight, we were bummed to not have stayed for a 6th but then...we felt lucky that we didn't. I HATE that I'm writing this but look at the cookie cutter responses done by someone who must be paid cheap in a customer call center overseas in response to customer queries and reviews that you...

4 of us (2 couples) visited Dublin for a weekend away in early December 2016, we had researched hotels in Dublin and although not cheap the Gresham was getting good reviews, sadly our experience did not live up to the hype. The hotel itself was lovely, eating & bar area very nice, the rooms were just about ok, but seriously...

We recently stayed in the Gresham for a 2 night midweek break over midterm. We booked online for what was a great price. Neither of us had stayed in the Gresham before but we were really looking forward to it. The location of the hotel is very appealing for those who want to explore the city on foot. We booked...

Great location, got a bus from the airport to O'Connell Street where the hotel is situated. Very close to some great attractions such as the temple bar area and it was still walkable to the Guinness Storehouse. Room was great although slightly overheated at times so we had to use the aircon. Nice shower and very polite staff. Didn't eat...

When the GF and I visit Dublin we stay at the Gresham but to be honest I found it to be pretty mediocre this time around. Our first stay there was in February 2013 when I wrote this 5 Star review in Tripadvisor https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g186605-d209082-r151839202-Hotel_Riu_Plaza_The_Gresham_Dublin-Dublin_County_Dublin.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT It still tops their review chart When we arrived we were given our room security key/card....

Found this hotel to be lovely and in a great location. The staff we encountered were helpful, friendly and polite. The bedroom was a nice size and the bed was comfortable. I would stay here again. We didn't have breakfast here as it was expensive.
