Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Despite central location, the environment is…let’s say interesting. It’s a very busy, run down area looking scary starting mid afternoon. Definitely not the kind of area we were expecting. The hotel is clean, but the room we were in was so small we felt claustrophobic. To make matters worse, because the sun was shining directly on our window and there is no air con, temperature in the room was unbearable at night. The bathroom was clean but so small it was almost impossible to get in. Overall, such a bad experience for the price we paid, we decided to cut our stay short and stay in a real hotel in a safe area.,

Having never been to Dublin before, I picked the Gardiner Lodge without much to go on. Happily, I made the right decision. In fact, I feel like I hit the jackpot. I have been here for almost a week and I have had nothing but the most positive experiences. The people at the desk are supremely knowledgeable, attentive, friendly, and helpful. The kitchen staff serves up a wonderful breakfast every morning under the natural light in the solarium/dining room. For those mornings when I could not wait until 8am (at which point the Irish breakfasts begin to appear), a continental buffet has been waiting for me at 7am. The rooms must surely have been remodeled recently; mine looks and feels brand new. The Gardiner is perfectly located for my purposes, just above the corner of Gardiner and Talbot. Two wonderful (and very different) pubs--the Celt (with Irish music) and Grainger's (with peace and quiet)--are within a stone's throw on Talbot. There is espresso to be had on the intersection itself. Gardiner Street is busy with traffic, but no street noise ever reached my room (#16); only the sound of the occasional seagull. Dublin north of the river is not as "well-heeled" as Dublin south of the river, and that's exactly the way I like it. Talbot is a wonderfully unassuming street with a pleasing mix of restaurants, formal and informal. Bottom line: I will come back to the Gardiner Lodge the next time I am here.

The hotel i centrally located, maybe I should have choosen a hotel more on the outskirts of Dublin. We hade 2 standard double rooms and this is the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed at. The bathroom is so small that the toilet and the basin hardly fitted at all. No refrigerator and no glasses at the room.

We were set to stay for three nights. We checked in and stayed all of 15 minutes before deciding that this hotel was too unsafe for us as travelers. The service we experienced was terrifying and completely different from what the hotel portrays online to visiting guests. Upon arrival, the person checking us in mentioned that our room was right next to reception. We had interpreted this as meaning it was down the hall. We were still apprehensive as we were three young females and the first floor is not the safest place to be located. As we tried to make our way to our room, the man told us our room was RIGHT next to reception. I literally had one foot in the check-in area and one foot in the entryway to our room. We didn't even make it in the room before I asked to be moved to a new space due to safety and how uncomfortable it made us. He said it wasn't an option but to go inside and see how the room was. We tried to do so and made it through the first door. My friend tried to lock the first door but was met with someone aggressively trying to get into our room and yanking on the door handle...it was the man that checked us in! It was frightening. He was trying to assure us no one could get into our room without the key..which he clearly had access to. Not only were we made extremely uncomfortable by this man, but the fact that everyone that needs to get into/out of the hotel has to walk past our room, and the fact that everyone checking in can hear our conversations due to the shared wall our room had with reception made us very uneasy. This was extremely disappointing and stressful to deal with so late at night. You should be ashamed of the facade that is displayed online versus what facilities you actually offer. When we pulled up there were empty liquor bottles lining the front steps of the property. It was damp, musty, and dated. The location is awful, with lots of drunks and sketchy people walking by. It was one of the filthiest parts of the city we experienced.

The hotel is located near the main train and bus stations; also nearby are tram stops. The area itself is a bit shady and dirty, which unfortunately is typical of main train stations. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served daily and includes cooked to order items. The room we were in was quite small, hardly any space for suitcases or to move around comfortably. Our room was very clean and was serviced daily, which we appreciated. There is no air conditioning - most of the time that’s not a problem; however, a few of the days during our stay our room was too hot for comfort.

I stayed here for two nights. The bed was awful and the extrscter fan going all night. The staff were very nice and helpful. Good location. Sadly, I won't be staying here again in a hurry. The rooms are really small and does not reflect the price.

We stayed at Gardiner Lodge over the St Paddy Day week. There were some good and some not great things about it. First the good. A hot, delicious breakfast was included in our stay that we thoroughly enjoyed each morning. The receptionist was very helpful calling us a taxi and storing luggage and answering questions. The room was smaller than expected. We had a family suite and it was very crowded. The bathroom was nice, and the shower fantastic. The location is a bit off the beaten path.. a wee walk to get to most sites. There are a few good pubs in the area. The price we paid was high for the value. Not sure if this was due to visiting during St Paddy's or if it's always that way.

This was my partners and I second time visiting the Gardiner Lodge and we had to back as we LOVED it the first time!! Since we came back again they upgraded us to a lovely room free of charge. The room was an absolute delight it was very neat and tidy. The receptionist and the staff were very kind and helpful. They allowed us to keep our back behind the desk as we did arrive extremely early before check in. The room was very cosy and comfortable. They also do a lovely breakfast with plenty of options ☺️Over all I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND going to this lodge. 10/10 ✅

The room was nice and clean, as was the lodge. Would have given a 5 star rating but unfortunately, due to the unprofessional behaviour and bad attitude of the receptionist, I will give it 4 stars. Please ensure that your receptionist knows how to speak to guests.

This was my first visit to Dublin and the Gardiner Lodge was the perfect place to stay - both for its location and homey feel. My room was spacious and well appointed and the staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful (shout out to Sebastian who is a great asset to the Gardiner). The location is centrally located to just about everything- a short walk to the Spire, Trinity College, Grafton Street and the EPIC Museum. Plus there are tons of restaurants and pubs in all price ranges in the area.
