I didn't stay at the hotel because I was informed that between the hotel and the convention center I need to get to, there is a neighborhood that is not particularly safe and so to use the hotel, I would be required to use cabs. It would also mean leaving my 80 year old mother in a place where her...

DubSkylonHotel, General Manager at Dublin Skylon Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Paula S You have made a big mistake here. Let's see if we can sort this out: Firstly you booked a Non-Refundable Discount Rate through an On-Line Travel Agent. This incurs commission fees which is why you were charged for the first night stay. No other hotel would have refunded a Non-Refundable booking but my Reservations team sorted this...

Our visit to the Skylon was much better than I expected. The room was fresh and modern. For a double room, the bed was quite big! In excellent, possibly rare touch in hotels, was the complimentary crisps and Nespresso machine. Excellent first impressions. There was no air conditioning in the room, only a plug in fan. The room was very...

From the front desk staff to the room attendants, the entire staff could not have been more accommodating to me & my husband on our most recent stay. My husband badly sprained his ankle & not only did the staff bring him buckets of ice, but they offered to help bandage it up. My Mum was critically ill, & they...

It's a good hotel. The staff were very warm and friendly, even printing our return boarding passes for us for free. Breakfast good too. If you're taking the bus downtown make sure you have exact change, it's €2.70 and they don't give change.
