“Absolutely fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Stayed 3 nights for a trip to Dublin with two trips to the O2 in early March. Check in was so good - the girl on reception was really welcoming and friendly, and gave us a map and directions to an exhibition we wanted to see in Dublin - she even googled it to check where it was and what the opening times were for us! The location of the hotel is brilliant - right next to the O2 and the Luas stop is right outside - about 10 mins to city.

We had croissants and coffee in the bar when we arrived - beautifully presented. The room was great, a balcony outside (not great views but still nice to get outside for air)) and a fantastic bathroom. We ate one night in the bar and one night in the restaurant - both excellent - really stylish and the service was faultless. The menus were a little bit limited, but great quality. We particularly liked the 'late food' idea in the bar - after both of the O2 concerts we came back to the hotel bar and had a wee late night snack. I went with my daughter who is a teenager, but it seemed to me like a really family friendly hotel. On the Friday night there was a dj in the bar playing some great music for all tastes. The staff were unbelievably good - all of them. They seemed happy at their work, which is great to see. Management should commend the staff for providing such a first class service to guests - as reading other reviews here before we went it would apppear the staff are a particular strength of this hotel.

We had a room only rate so didn't have breakfast. For the room we had, and the whole hotel experience, I think this is an outstanding hotel and great value. We plan to return to Dublin in the future and we wouldn't go anywhere else. There is a relaxation zone which hasn't opened yet, when it does I think this will be the perfect hotel. I'm just worried The Gibson is going to get so popular we won't get in!

We have stayed here on numerous occasions and I had been meaning to leave a response. We stayed this weekend and again its so modern and clean I just adore it.

However the pillows are not great which is a huge thing when you are staying in a hotel, we seemed to have slept well the other times we stayed but this time the pillows were flat - I love and adore the pillows in Bewleys hotels they are made from hollowfibre material and its gas it keeps bringing me back there because of the pillows and duvets.

anyway continuing with the gibson the staff are lovely and the rooms I just cant say enough good things about them. The breakfast we got was amazing a HUGE selection to chose from.

The food in the hotel itself is not fantastic its ok.

will definitely be returning I love it!

thanks gibson hotel

Without a doubt the best hotel I've ever stayed in while in Dublin (I've stayed in a lot!). The location which is right next to the Luas line makes it the ideal base to travel around the city & see the sights! The staff were incredibly helpful & polite and although the bar was extremely busy due to the Il Divo concert, staff were efficient & very helpful.

I would definitely rate this as one of the best in the city & I will certainly return.

i stayed in the Gibson for one night because I was going to a concert at the O2, which is right beside the hotel. I have to say that I was blown away with this hotel. The staff are all very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The room was bright, clean and had everything you might need. I thought that a fridge in the room was very good, not to mention a kettle for the cup of coffee you need after a shopping trip.
The room service food was very good, and the breakfast was better than most hotels I have stayed in.
There was no noise from outside at night, and the Luas stop is beside the hotel, which means you are in the city centre in just 5 minutes.
I have just cancelled my booking at another hotel in Dublin for next month when I am attending a conference, and have booked the Gibson, which will now be my hotel of choice in Dublin.

Looked lovely from the outset, checked in, very helpful receptionest. Went to our room, NO view, Put at the back of the building looking out to a building not being used. The curtains hanging off the railing, I had to put 4 hooks back up. Cobwebs in the corner of the windows. The bathroom has a side panel viewing from the shower into the bedroom, NOT much privacy at all. We went to the restaurant/bar for some food before the show, we asked to see both menus, not much at all on the menus to be honest, asian style food 4 choices to choose from much of a choice really. when we got the food it was 5/6 prawns and much else I got rice and friend got chips. The price of the food was certainly not worth it. The staff were friendly but that was about it.
We rang for milk for tea which we never recieved either.
When we checked out we were not even asked how we found the room, service or anything.
I wouldn't stay there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Chic and understated with a music pedigree that runs deep, the gibson hotel Dublin is the ultimate urban retreat. Music lovers, art junkies, food fanatics - whatever your passion it's right on our doorstep. We do sleeping, meeting, dining, gigging, touring, wedding and relaxing really really well. We mix all these things with a fresh, energetic, slightly off centre approach and we know it works. Exhibitions, supporting local artists, urban weddings and the odd celebrity are elements of what makes us different to the normal Dublin Hotel. You will find our staff friendly, responsive and happy - there is a secret to this that we can't possibly share. The gibson hotel is the ideal location to explore the city and planning your stay is easy. The M1 and M50 are 8 minutes away via the Port Tunnel and we have ample covered parking for our guests. With the luas stop right outside our front door Connolly train station is only 8 minutes away and Heuston train station is a short 20 minutes from the hotel. The Luas will take you to the City centre in 10 minutes or if you prefer to take in the views of the River Liffey a brisk 15 minute walk along the quays will bring you to O'Connell street, the heart of Dublin city. Great beds, 100MB complimentary WiFi, a gym, relaxation area, restaurant, bar and meeting space are all part of the deal. The gibson hotel is modern yet comfortable, it's different and it's better, it's large, it's friendly and it's a building that is alive with great people from the moment you set foot until the moment you leave. ... more   less
