Nice hotel with very helpful staff. Get a room off the street as they are much quieter. Easy to get around Dublin from this location. Rooms clean and good sized for area. Right off St. Steven's green, close to Trinity College and an easy walk to Grafton Street.

The hotel is in an Great location! Far enough away from the major pub areas for peace and quiet. Yet you could walk if you truly wanted to or take a short taxi ride. Blocks away from Trinity Church, St. Stephens Green. The rooms are nice size and very well maintained. The front desk and house keeping were exceptional! If... More

It's in a great location. Big rooms but I wouldn't have thought of it as a 4 star hotel. Friendly staff though and nice bar area. I found rooms very basic and that's where I would find the drop in quality.

This is a very nice hotel with very courteous staff who are anxious to help. The hotel is about I block from stop #5 of the Dublin "Hop On- Hop Off" bus which is a very convenient way to get around Dublin. It is near Trinity College and shopping on Grafton Street. The breakfast buffet covers the full range from... More

I always stay here when I come to to Dublin. Just a short distance from St Stephen's Green and Trinity College, pretty much everywhere you want to go in the city centre is only approx 15 mins walk away. It's a real nice hotel, with the great spacious rooms and really nice friendly staff. You could probably get something a... More

This is a good hotel, nicely situated for an easy walk to Dublin Centre, but in need of a major renovation! The lobby furniture is sad and saggy...some chairs with no padding. Old tables that they may think look 'antique' but just look scratched. Our Junior Suite was adequate is space but the bathroom was something out of the 50's.... More

The hotel is located a great spot if you have never been to Dublin and want to be in the heart of town. The hotel bar and restaurant had good food with great service. The staff fell over themselves to be helpful.

We were here with a tour group. Rooms were in good repair and clean. Breakfasts were excellent and the servers in the breakfast area were good. Had dinner one night in the hotel bar and the service was slow. They may have been surprised by how many people ate there that night and were understaffed. The food thought was very... More

This was my first time at the Davenpiort(I usually stay at the O'Callaghan Stephens Green - it was ful). The Davenport is 10 minutes from Temple Bar on foot.

This is a modern fancy hotel. Service was good and the people were nice. Location was ok, but it was a bit of a walk to the temple bar area. Since we only slept there I think next time I'd pick something cheaper and a little closer to the action.
