Hotel was clean, but our room was above a nightclub that went in 7ntil 2 am, at which point patrons began to scream in the streets. Most worrying though was the evenin/nighttime when drug addicts began circling you and demanding money. Multiple homeless sleeping in street and doing drugs in front of the hotel. Location is great, but it's difficult to feel safe outside at night.
Dublin's Holiday Inn is centrally located at the top of O'Connell Street. The rooms are functional and nicely appointed. It is also more affordable than many hotels in Dublin, and breakfast is included. The staff is helpful, and there is a bar that is opened till around midnight if a person needs a nightcap. However, it can get very noisy on weekends. There is a club that is outside, and the music blares till the wee hours and the crowd outside gets raucous. Also, while the breakfast is included, the only eggs they serve are scrambled and tasteless. Fried eggs would be a better choice in what is supposed to be an Irish breakfast.
Great location in city center off of O'Connell Street. Walking distance to everything. Two Irish pubs (out of over 700 to choose from in Dublin) right next door, a cafe to the left, open lobby concept inside, and includes complimentary breakfast for all guests however the breakfast isn't that great... After checking in, went to our large room on the sixth floor. Window was open and the AC was off - took a couple of hours to cool down our room. We did have a great city view overlooking O'Connell Street and it was quiet once it started to get dark around 9 or 10 pm. At night and early in the morning, everything is card access. To access the elevators, you need your room card at all times. Parking was a hassle so be careful if you rent a vehicle. Before you drive up to the hotel, look for QPark building on the left hand side. The hotel does give a discount, we returned our rental one day early but less than a full day in the parking garage - still costed 21 euros. A few things the hotel lacks: lotion, washcloths, slippers, ice machine…
I stayed for a week at this hotel, was travelling for business meetings in Dublin. The best thing in this hotel is how nice the staff is. They speak a ton of languages and their very very friendly not only to the guests but between themselves. I speak several languages, so I could understand how professional and friendly they are to each other even when the guest is not around. A big shout out to Paula, Yasmin and Karen at the reception but also to Marina that also left my room shining everyday! The staff working at the breakfast are very cheerful and polite, every morning.
Stayed 2 nights booking a double and twin room. Took an early morning flight so arrived at hotel around 10.30am. Was able to leave cases and check in later, so we could go off and explore this wonderful city on a leisure break. Had a late return flight, so again, could leave cases and pick up late afternoon. Reception - check in/check out was excellent; friendly and consistent service from all who served us throughout our stay [hard to name names - they were all consistently excellent). Knowledgeable and always helpful. Rooms - good size and spotlessly clean. Bathrooms - good size, excellent working facilities and again, spotlessly clean. Breakfast - very busy, but we did coincide with peak times. Good selection and staff worked hard to replenish stock. Location - could not be more central and easy access to all visitor sites. Buses and trams passed close by. The best Holiday Inn Express i have stayed at for service; décor; and cleanliness. Can strongly recommend it for leisure or business.…
A lovely, clean and conveniently located hotel experience. Friendly staff, consistent service with a smile. We highly recommend! Stick with O’Connell street, walking is easy and food choices are ample. If you waive housekeeping, you get extra points.
Stay 4 nights it was wonderful. Staff Karen, Yasmin, Daniel ,Sara went above and beyond. Not only in helping us book the tours, also with little details: taking the bus, which restaurants to eat, covid test center ect... Also the hotel location was perfect. Losts of restaurants around and stores. The room was very comfortable and clean.
Stayed here for one night in order to see a show at Smock Alley Theatre. Great value for money. Great location. Great staff (particularly a lady from Brazil whose name I didn't catch). Staying here took a lot of the stress out of the trip. We got to check in 2 hours early which was super helpful, as was being able to store our luggage for free on departure day. My favourite thing was the squeezy soap dispensers in the bathroom. Nice and sustainable and no tiny bottles to worry about (i.e. "Do I take these home so they don't get thrown away or is that stealing?"). If needing a convenient, reasonably priced place to stay, I would definitely book this hotel again.
Good comfortable 5 night stay. Good check-in and check out. Staff very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were smallish but very comfortable and clean. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Tea and coffee provided and a safe, iron and ironing board, but no fridge. Good lighting and plenty of well placed powerpoints. Shower was good and hot water takes a while but gets there eventually. Nice and quiet even with a street fronting room. Great walkable location. Buses and trams right out front, easy 10 minute walk to Temple Bar. Great bars with Irish music right next door in O'Connell Street or good sports bar round the corner. Great Irish pork sausages at breakfast which was limited but good. Breakfast is included. Would definitely stay again.
The hotel is extremely clean and functional despite the crowds coming and going all day long. The bedroom is good value for money and the breakfast is very satisfactory. The hotel staff took my lost luggage (thanks for nothing AirFrance). Staff very professional.
