But still lovely. Good location just up the street from cool Temple Bar area. Tons of buses in the front. Close to all amenities, like coffee,...

Nothing to fault with Gresham except it's dated in places. Recommend you ask for a room in new wing if possible, we were in there by chance and our room was lovely. Our party had a twin and double. Granted the view isn't much to shout about but the bed was comfy, room quiet and everything perfectly tidy / clean....

We stayed on the weekend of the England game. Loved the location, right by the airport bus stop. Recently renovated lobby & rooms. Couldn't work the aircon, probably my fault.

I was not aware of the hotel's history when I booked the hotel, but wow it was a surprise. Very traditional, very convenient location to explore Dublin. The only negative is the price, if I would be on a tight budget, I could not afford it.
