A room was ready when we arrived at 10am which meant we could drop our bags off. The airport bus stops right outside and it's the 2nd stop which is ideal. Getting the bus back to the airport is simple too as the bus stop is directly opposite when you are returning. The room was very hot and we didn't...

Centrally located on O Connell Street (major road). Beware - construction project going on the roadway. No view from room, but didn't spend a lot of time in room. Beds were small and a little uncomfortable, but ok. Room clean and neat. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Restaurant was excellent and nice place for a meal. Probably the best...

This hotel is far from being a 4 star so don't be fooled by the ratings. The service is non existent; our room needed a thorough clean; the split air conditioning system didn't work; the bathroom shower taps were falling apart ;the noise emanating from the roof when the shower was turned on was piercing; the carpet was soiled and...

What a great hotel! Arrived early. David the concierge, checked if room was ready, and it was. Otherwise there's the option of dropping my off luggage for later check-in. From David, to the front desk staff including housekeeping, everyone was very helpful and accommodating. The irish breakfast is not to be missed. I would highly recommend staying at The Gresham...
