Another wonderful stay in Buswells. Within easy walking distance of Grafton street and so many other attractions in this most beautiful part of Dublin. Surrounded by great restaurants. Rooms always perfect. Looking forward to returning.

We stayed at Buswells Hotel in Dublin for 2 nights and loved it. We had been travelling for a few weeks and getting to Buswells was such a welcome relief. The location is very central to all key sights, nice restaurants and shopping. The hotel itself is small enough to feel welcoming but large enough to provide excellent rooms and... More

I stayed here with 3 girlfriends on a birthday trip to Dublin. The hotel is very traditional in lots of good ways. Friendly staff, great service and very comfortable. Location is excellent. Highly recommended.

We stayed here four nights and were very pleased. The hotel is well situated in the city, close to everything. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. We arrived early and were treated to a complementary tea in their "old world" bar. We later discovered that they serve great Irish coffees in the bar. The breakfast was excellent and... More

Good value, great central Dublin location. Rooms are clean and tidy but not particularly modern. Staff are friendly. I have stayed 3-4 times on business but found the rooms quite dark with small windows and little view but I am sure this depends on the room.

Nice access to Trinity College, but the old world elegance wasn't entirely charming.The locks and keys to work our doors were tricky, as were the faucets. City noise definitely an issue. Rooms quite small. Wasn't all we'd hoped.

Great location, pleasant staff, very clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast is great and the bar is very, very inviting. Right in the middle of Dublin and walking distance to many sites. It was just a very comfortable hotel!

Very pretty and elegant hotel tucked away on a not-so-busy street. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, efficient and helpful. Our room was small but so are all rooms in European hotels we have stayed in. It felt freshly redecorated and in very good taste. The bed was extremely comfortable and hard to get out of in the morning... More

We stayed 2 nights at Buswells when we came over to Ireland to run a half marathon. Buswells was just what we needed, quiet, friendly, efficient and oh so peaceful. A huge comfy bed in a large well equipped room with a fantastic ensuite, who could ask for more? Friendly, attentive staff too. I just wish we had satyed longer.

Great to be close to the centre of Dublin and far enough away from the busy, noisy traffic in the city. Car parking is annoying. It was bank holiday Monday when we arrived and the usual car park used by the hotel was closed. The alternative care park was not convenient so we used the nearest multi storey( which incidentally...
