This hotel is a bit stodgy, and located in probably the worst part of CBD Dublin. During the day, the boulevard is congested with traffic and tourists. At night, a whole different scene of people are walking about from bars and nightclubs, drunk and creating havoc. Furthermore, you can easily hear neighboring guests rooms all around you, to the point... More

The Gresham is a lovely hotel on O'Connell Street near the Spire (a local landmark). I found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable. The service at reception, in housekeeping and at the restaurants was friendly and competent. I stayed for 8 days with a friend in a room with 2 twin beds. Our room overlooked the roof of... More

First time to stay at the Gresham so was REALLY looking forward to it as I have passed it numerous times when in Dublin. Check in fast and friendly although we did arrive quite early so they were able to store our bags until our rooms were ready. One room was really nice with a good size bathroom but very... More

Just back from a fabulous 2 night stay at the Gresham. This hotel has all that you would want - central location in Dublin, style, excellent staff, good food - all at an affordable price. The front desk staff are very professional, despite having exceptionally busy periods dealing with multiple check ins and departures. Other reviewers have reported discourteous (or... More

The Gresham Hotel is ideally placed for visitors to Dublin as it is situated in Upper O'Connell Street convenient to many of the main stores and also only a short walk away from the Temple Bar area which is the place to go for the night life. The Hotel itself had a rather grand feel to it, looking quite imposing... More

The location is good, but the hotel feels a bit tired around the edges if you look closely. Carpets look tired/grubby? I am slightly surprised it is considered a four star, as I felt it had more of a feel of three star. Rooms were clean. Nothing really special about them. Breakfast was Ok, but the breakfast room felt a... More

I decided to surprise my boyfriend with one night at the Gresham in our anniversary last week.. I booked on the internet the bed and breakfast, the price was ok for the location, it wasn't the cheapest hotel around, but it was worth it. When we got there the people on reception was really friendly, I requested a high room... More

Worst experience ever. I am posting a screenshot of a decibel meter showing an average reading of 41.6 decibel in my room at 1:50 in the morning, with windows closed. This went on 24 hours, everyday. No sleep possible without earplugs. In Germany the authorities will intervene if the reading is above 35 by night, 45 db by day. no... More
