This is my favorite hotel in Dublin. Beautiful rooms, gracious staff, located right across from the National Library and Parliament, a block from St Stephen's Square and St Ann's Church, and not far from Trinity College. Tea in the lavish lobby while you wait for your room. My home away from home.

Buswells Hotel is a beautiful, well-run hotel located adjacent to Trinity College, National Museum of Archaelogy, St. Stevens Green, Hop-on Hop-off buses, great restaurants and excellent shopping. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff is extremely helpful, courteous and attentive. Truman's restaurant offers great breakfasts and dinners. We would definitely return to this hotel the next time...

I booked Buswells because we needed a triple room and they had a good rate and location. Hotel is great for a 3 star, nice rooms, great service, and good prices. The breakfast was just OK, save yourself the money and go to one of the many amazing cafes close to the hotel. Go to O'Donoghues pub at night too,...

We spent our last night at Buswells after our 2 week trip around Ireland. The lobby is gorgeous, the front desk efficient and very helpful. We missed the breakfast because of an early flight, but they set up a very substantial Continental breakfast for our party of 8 to enjoy. The location was very convenient. We would definitely stay there...
