I have visited Dublin twice this year on vacation. Both times I stayed in Buswell's Hotel. I like this hotel for a number of reasons. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. It is reasonably priced and walking distance from many of Dublin's city centre attractions. I also love it's unique character which you don't find in hotel chains. It... More

The location was excellent! We could walk everywhere! If I ever go back to Dublin, I will definitely stay at Buswells... More

Buswells is a wonderful hotel. It satisfies what are, for me, the two most important requirements of a hotel: it is very very clean, and the staff are all lovely, helpful people. It is true, as some of the reviews say, that some of the rooms are very small or are strange shapes, but that is because Buswells is an... More

It is always such a pleasure to return to Buswells, where I've been staying off and on for the past thirty -five years, that I can feel my blood pressure dropping to a nice, relaxed level as soon as I enter. Within the last five years I have stayed in approximately 30 hotels in Prague, London, Manchester, Norwich, York (England)... More

The service was outstanding! Although it's awquard to have to return your key on every departure.The central location in the heart of Dublin, is a wonderful treat. If you book a room, consider the extensive stairways and long meandering hallways, you'll have to navigate to most rooms. And make sure to order a top sheet, because the comforters are very... More
