“Good Hotel, in a very nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

It is a boutique hotel, located near the Dublin Castle, Temple Bar and other tourist sites.
Breakfast is not the best I've ever had, must be improved.
Room very nice, spacious, but needs a paint on the walls, they looked dirty and unmaintained.
Bathroom is very good, large with separate bath and shower. Looked recently refurbished.
In an overhall, I recommend this place.

Lovely hotel albeit slightly dated and rather small rooms. The room is lacking a few amenities that are such as a proper ironing board / iron in the room and mini bar. The iron that was brought from housekeeping was ancient, with no steam capability.

That said, the customer service is excellent - when I got sick in the middle of the night and needed a few things brought to the room, the night manager went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of.

Beware of asking for add'l bottles of water, as I thought they were complimentary but only the two bottles in your room are free - add'l (tiny!) bottles of water cost 3EUR each !

This hotel is very special in which I insist on staying when I am in Dublin. Its a boutique hotel that has a special ambiance that I love, The great thing about the hotel its in the central to Grafton Street for shopping and Temple Bar for a few drinks. Also the rooms are spacious with all the requirements needed for a short break. In the morning you will be served a delicious breakfast ready for your day in Dublin. Thank you Brooks another lovely stay see you next year!

Very impressed with this hotel during our one night recent stay. Nice room with comfy beds and extremely pleasant staff. Great location with plenty of dining options plus Grafton Street is nearby.
Breakfast was nice with plenty of choices at the buffet, a bit pricey but we were in at the height of the summer. A fine choice among many spectacular hotels in Dublin, our first choice was unavailable but this never felt like a second.

Been going to the Dublin Horse Show every year for the last 33 years in the past few years friends of ours have stayed at the Brooks and have raved about it. On our arrival we are met with the friendly face of Connor the doorman who is a well known character, the room was very nice and the air-con was working perfectly as it was a warm spell Dublin was having, breakfast was very good and you can basically get what you want, all the staff were very well dressed and doing their jobs to a very high standard as well as smiling and being very accommodating. The hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance of Graften Street and nice restaurants, we will stay there from now on and its good value for money.

Room Tip: Stay on the higher floors and at the back, keep away from the elevator

I have stayed in this hotel many many times over the last 10 years but I have to say that every aspect is outstanding-from price to service to hospitality. The Ballymena chef cooks phenomenal breakfasts every time with delicious local Irish produce. It is a haven in the middle of Dublin-a well priced luxury hotel with no outside street noise (impossible to find in Dublin and I have tried all other hotels!), great hospitality and outstanding food and service. A hidden secret I dare to say! Absolutely fantastic welcome as soon as you arrive and Connor the concierge is just a legend-he would do anything for you. From the recipe for their Irish wheaten bread which they have on display at breakfast to a bottle of their elderflower cordial which is also available they really go that extra mile to make you feel welcome. And do you know something? They remember your face and your name! Every time!

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet. Fantastic!

We arrived very early from our very long international flights. We arrived at brooks just hoping to leave our luggage but we were welcomed in and given a comfy parlor to wait in until a room became available. Once we got in a room, very early, it was welcoming and cozy.
In addition to the extraordinary welcome and accommodations the the location was ideal just a block off graffton street. Another highlight of this fabulous find is the over the top breakfast buffet with full irish breakfast. What can I say? What could be better?
