On first entering our room we found that it was vibrating to a loud mechanical noise - this was affecting not just our room but all the rooms in our part of the hotel. I popped to the reception desk to chat the matter over with the staff. I was advised that the noise was coming from a fan that... More

We chose this hotel for its location. It's close to museums and art galleries and the shopping area of Grafton street. We were greeted by friendly staff and were very pleasantly surprised by the dining room. There is a definite buzz to the place and popular with travel groups. Our room was small but comfortable and practical. There was no... More

Old so dont expect what goes with new. Stayed in room 99. Tub shower; but spacious bath and bedroom. Room temp controlled by radiator, so slept with window open. Also good idea to ask for top sheet. Comforter gets a little hot. Staff was great and on top of things. Dont expect your room to be ready when you arrive... More

The location close to St Stephen's Green and Grafton St can't be beaten. The hotel is pleasantly traditional with very good bar and lounge areas. Our bedroom on the first floor at the front was a good size with a very comfortable bed. There was a little traffic noise but it didn't keep us awake. Generous breakfast, though coffee and... More

We stayed here during a guided tour. Hotel was picked for us but I was excited because I knew a bit of Dublin and knew this was in the thick of things. Honestly we did not have the time opportunity to really enjoy either Dublin or the hotel. The room were small for two people. Only had a double bed... More

Excellent service and food! We came to your hotel with the Rick Steve's tour, and were pleasantly surprised by your friendly staff and their attention to detail. When we were getting ready to leave they got us plane boarding passes and taxi service. Would recommend to everyone.

This was the second time that I have stayed at Buswells. The hotel has character, the staff are efficient/friendly and the food (especially the breakfast) is good quality. It makes a change from staying in anonymous chain hotels.

Older hotel but well maintained. Location convenient to walking to all areas of Dublin. The public areas of the hotel are comfortable and cozy and lend themselves to having a pot of tea in the sitting area or a drink in the pub. Staff friendly but not exceptional for following through on details but will remedy any requests. Room small... More

We stayed at the Buswells Hotel the first night and last two nights of our honeymoon in Ireland. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The location was better than we could have asked for. It was centrally located among several museums, St Stephen's Green, Trinity College, tour bus stops, and several shops and restaurants. We loved our stay and... More

My husband and I were planning a visit to Dublin and wanted a moderately priced hotel in a good area. Rick Steves listed Buswells as a recommended hotel and I read the reviews on TripAdvisor. Here is my review. The location is perfect for seniors like us who wanted to be away from the noise and action. However, you're very... More
