A near faultless stay at the Buswell: Great location (a short walk to the centre), nice ambience, friendly staff, spacious, clean, well equipped room, great breakfast and a comfortable dining room. Only complaint was the barman who couldn't make a decaf coffee at 10pm; I think he could but didn't want to. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay definitely in my... More

The hotel is nice, traditional with a slightly old fashioned decor. The room was large, decent storage space and comfortable. The bathroom was huge! My only issue was that I could hear my neighbours' conversation (every word!) and snoring! The best thing is the location. You are 5 mn away from Trinity College, Grafton Street, St Stephen's Green, National Gallery...... More

It's hard to imagine what else a visitor could ask for than what is standard at Buswells' hotel. The rooms are large and neat and comfortable; the food is terrific at the huge breakfast and restaurant later; the staff is professional, helpful and on the ball. There's history and modern conveniences rolled together. The locationlocationlocation is perfect -- just minutes'... More

This hotel is situated perfectly for central Dublin. 5 mins from Dawson and Grafton Street and some great places to eat and drink. We visited the Greenhouse on Dawson Street ( see my review , one of the best meals I have had in ages ) and Kehoe's Pub just further on. Service at the hotel was excellent and special... More

This is a lovely little hotel ideal for those looking to visit Dublin. It has great character and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We had a nice double room, which has great facilities and space; only negative would be the view (of the generators), but not a holiday spoiler!

We had a mixed experience of this hotel. On the plus side the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the location was terrific.

I popped into the restaurant of this hotel at around 4pm today after a bit of window shopping in the city. In a hotel of this purported quality you rightly expect a dish to be of a good standard, particularly something as simple as fish 'n' chips. The fish was just awful. It had the pasty consistency of 'Fish fingers'... More

I chose this hotel due to its proximity to my customer. Price comparison to other local hotels put this hotel as one of the more reasonable locations still close to St. Stephen's Green, Grafton Street, Connelly Street and Trinity College. This is a beautiful, classical hotel. It is old in a nice way. Very comfortable, extremely clean, pleasant and accommodating... More
