Arrived at the hotel late on the 16th March so St Patrick's Day celebrations were in full swing which we weren't too bothered about especially as we'd come to Dublin to enjoy the festivities! Really friendly staff - didn't try too hard but also didn't seem offhand at any point. We stayed in Room 206 which had a great bathroom... More

Was really impressed when receptionist walked me to my room on 3rd floor. Ok room - mixture of indian and Chinese themed furniture and clean but outdated bathroom but general areas needed hovering and stairs had threadbare steps and wobbly bannister. Ok for a one night stay in central location but needs investment.Shabby bit not chic

The problem is, they advertise 4 stars so my expectations immediately go higher. Location wrt. Dublin is great. Location on top of a night club is already less enjoyable; earplugs are mandatory! First impression when entering the room was very good. But when you start looking at the details, there is an obvious lack of maintenance. If you get a... More

The hotel is changing from La Stampa to the Dawson and is in the middle of the re-branding. The hotel from the outside looks... More

Immediately disappointed with hotel as it was being renovated in some way so the reception was a sparse room upstairs. Room was clean but desperately in need of update and maintenance and repairs. Furniture scratched and chipped and bathroom fittings broken. Spa cancelled our booking and then messed up the rebooking, got our treatment request wrong then overcharged us. Still... More

I stayed two nights at Dawson and I'm pretty sure I will not stay there again. The staff was very friendly and helpful, normally this is enough reason for coming back to a Hotel. But Dawson is expained in one word- dirty. Worn out wall to wall carpets that should have been taken out years ago and in general everthing... More

Pros: is located near the city center Cons: it has really lots of stairs, dont think is safe for old people or who has walking problems. There is a club near the hotel, and during the weekend our room's walls were vibrating, the noise could be heard in every place of the building, we had to buy earplugs In the... More

Apart from the location, there is very little to recommend about this hotel. We stayed on a Saturday night in a room at the back of the hotel, on the second floor. This area is directly above the nightclub downstairs but with a lack of evident sound-proofing, you may as well have your bed on the dance floor. I couldn't... More

I stayed in the Dawson Hotel on the 27th February 14. I had stayed in the hotel 10 years previous when it was La Stampa and its very evident that there has been no update tot he rooms/carpets. The main issue was no sleep! We had to be moved at 2.30am in the morning because of noise from a large... More

I have just arrived back from a lovely 2 night stay in Dawson's hotel. I couldn't have asked for better, room 209 was lovely and the staff couldn't have being more helpful if they tried. There was quite a bit of noise from the near by nightclub but it didn't bother us at all. We are already planning on staying... More
