Awful awful place. If I could give it zero I would. The first thing a hotel is for is to sleep in, and here it is not possible as the music pumped out from the nightclub downstairs is so intense it makes the room shake. The person on reception nonchalantly replied that it was the weekend, although in my world...

A group of 10 of us stayed here from 24/4 to 26/4. Key points....lovely staff, but they are useless at serving breakfast and don't speak very good English! The breakfast when we eventually got it was great. If you want to sleep.....don't stay here, the bar is very noisy! The spa however is brilliant and I would have no hesitation...

First time in Dublin. You will not find a better hotel for the location. Between St. Stephens and Trinity College and very close to the buses serving the airport. Nice coffee shops and plenty of eats nearby. The bathroom is very nice, but extremely dim (light-wise). The shower is the best one ever - overhead and perfect for tall people...

Dear Valued Guest Lori R Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately we did have to book our guests out to another hotel due to Fire Alarm works which overran our projected finish date.. We tried to inform you as early as possible and can only apologise profusely for the inconvenience caused. We responded...

It was a lovely stay. In the middle of the city, with no noice at all. The staff was excellent and friendly. Felt like home. The room was special and it didnt feel like a standard hotel room. Lots of good resturants near by and easy to get to from the Airport.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dawson Hotel and award winning Dawson Spa are ideally located on Dawson Street in the heart of Dublin's city centre, with Trinity College at one end of the street and St. Stephen's Green at the other. Dublin's main shopping district, Grafton Street, is a short stroll around the corner from the hotel. Temple Bar is only 10 minutes’ walk away, while Dublin Castle and the Olympia Theatre are a 15 minute walk. With an elegant decor, each room includes a private bathroom with toiletries. All rooms contain an LCD TV with cable TV channels, complimentary water and free Wi-Fi access. A buffet breakfast service is available each morning, from 07.00 - 10.30 Monday to Friday and 08.00 – 11.00 at the weekends, served with orange juice, tea and coffee at our adjoining tenant The Seafood Bar restaurant (located at the Ground Floor of the Hotel). The Dawson Spa, located to the rear of the building, features “Voya” organic seaweed beauty products made in Ireland. Also onsite, the adjoining Sam's Bar offers a glamorous vibe, fresh cocktails and music from international DJs, with a Victorian garden terrace overlooking Dublin's Mansion House.
