Stayed here on a Saturday night just before Christmas. The room was nice, slightly dated but clean and comfortable. Wifi was very good. Location is excellent. Breakfast was fabulous, they think of everything. Staff were very friendly too. The negatives I would have it that it's not good value for money compared to some nearby hotels and also the fact...

My girlfriend and myself visited the gresham hotel during December 2016. We thought that the hotel was great, the staff were nice and the hotel is in a great location. The only issue that I had was that the room was very dark

I have stayed at the Gresham at least twice a month for 3 years, I have an employee who stays 3 nights every week, so fair to say I have been happy enough in the past, however now I've had enough. I want 3 things from a hotel; clean, good sleep, decent shower. The rooms at the front of the...

There was a time when it was something to stay at the Gresham. That was a long time ago. One of the suites is named after a friend of mine long since departed and I doubt if he would want his name associated with this grand old hotel now. Pity! Staff were great and service very good. Breakfast was mediocre,...

I last stayed here about a year ago and had a few niggles then so chose to stay elsewhere for the 2 visits I'd made to Dublin since. During this visit (over the Christmas period) my preferred hotel was booked out so I decided to give the Gresham another go as they had rooms available at reasonable prices. The stay...

As a family of 2 adults and 2 children we booked 2 nights in the Gresham and took the childrens Grandmother in her 80s to have a memorable Christmas vacation in Dublin. Requested rooms next to each other and on lowest floor prior to arrival but rooms were on different corridors. First night we noticed the bath was filthy with...

Very disappointed with this 4* hotel - €180 for room only and noise from street was terrible, we could hear people, cars etc. on street til after 3am. Receptionist wasn't too bothered when we told her, I emailed the hotel but not even a reply... Location is excellent and breakfast okay but won't stay again.

My partner and I stayed here, between Christmas and New Year for a quick city break.
