We returned to this hotel for the third time and were still so pleased we had booked again. We were greeted at reception by Danei who had recently arrived to work at this hotel from New Zealand. Our room was spacious and clean, snow white cotton sheets, comfortable bed with a small sitting room. The bathroom was spacious with a... More

After spending 4 nights at this hotel I would highly recommend it even though our room could have done with a little t.l.c. The staff will go out of their way to help and the food is excellent. Situated within walking distance of Grafton Street, Temple Bar & O'Connell Street it is in an ideal location

I stayed here and booked a single room. The room was a bit tired, but comfortable and full of character. The location is excellent, very central. Breakfast was excellent and parking was free in a near car park. My only reservation was the cost - €142 for a single person to stay for one night seems expensive.

Buswells Hotel Charming hotel, great location, helpful and friendly front desk staff, and a wonderful breakfast, either buffet or from a menu (or both). We recently stayed here for three nights and were very pleased with our room and with the elegant common areas.

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

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.
