The pics on the official Dublin Skylon Hotel were amazing, reason why we booked the hotel in the first place. Disappointment struck when we actually saw the room. More of a 2 and a half star hotel, rather than 4. The only positive feedback we can give is related to the cleanliness of the bathroom and the comfortability of the...

The room itself was just okay. There was a little bit of street noise, and the decorating was pretty stark. The people in the room next to us came back to their room at 2 in the morning and proceeded to laugh and scream for about an hour. My husband called the front desk, and an employee came up, knocked...

Very clean and tidy. They leave you a sparkling water and a packet of Irish crisps which is cute. The room was serviced well. Comfortable bed. Fabulous full breakfast. The only downside is it is a bit expensive.

The hotel itself is lovely, doesn't look nice from outside but inside is very pleasant. Rooms are well kept and very spacious. Downside was the noise going on a floor or so down having just got in from a very early flight the lovely receptionists allowed us to check in early as there was a room ready. I understand having...

This is essentially a lovely hotel in a good location, about halfway between the airport and the city centre. Would have been a clear 5* review. But... Got up in the morning for a shower before a speedy departure. Had to jump out of the shower before I was scalded by the insanely high temperature. I turned the temperature gauge...

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

Dear Cescalam I am deeply saddened that you 5 star stay was greatly diminished by the issues in the bathroom. There has been a breakdown in communication that I take full responsibility for and wish to offer you a full heart-felt apology. I would be eternally grateful if you would return to the hotel; I will personally look after you...
