Excellent hotel, great value and ideally situated for getting around Dublin, either on bus or walking. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable. No negatives. Would recommend.

The hotel is very nice, eco friendly, great food in restaurant and friendly service. The rooms are not small, I'm from NYC and Europe don't have huge hotel rooms, these were more than adequate. Priced well. I highly suggest it. We stayed a week with no problems!

My husband and I stayed here on Friday last. It was extremely central to everything we needed. Hotel spotless, Staff efficient and very friendly. We did not have dinner here but if it is as good as the breakfast then it's excellent! Thanks to Peter Collins and his team for their hospitality. We will be back.

After staying at The Gresham for the last 6 years, we decided to try this hotel out after 1 who traveled with us last year stayed here. And our group consisted of 10 total and all who stayed here loved it. It used to be a Best Western Plus property and guess they've struck out on their own. Highly recommend...

Had a three night stay as a surprise. Can't comment on VFM as I didn't pay. Very helpful staff. Very easy to get to just take the 747 air bus from the airport, ignore the touts trying to get you on their more expensive buses. The 747 stops right outside the hotel, ask the driver to let you know when...
