“Superb stay in Dublin!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

If you like being treated like you matter, this is your hotel. After a very early 4:30 am departure from Paris, we arrived at The Brooks Hotel on a Sunday. While is does not look like much on the outside, inside is everything you would want. We were greeted at the door by the nicest, most personable concierge, Connor. He guided us to the desk and after we found out our room was not yet available suggested we have a cup of coffee/tea in the restaurant to unwind. He stored our bags and gave us some safety tips about the area. ("Mind your handbags and wallets. Do not take your passports with you. Leave them in the room safe. Beware of Pickpockets!!) He then gave us a quick "what to see" of the area including church service times. The desk staff was very helpful, supplied a map of the area and gave us a key to their "residents lounge" where we could relax and even sleep until our room was ready. The lounge itself was like a large living room from a grand estate, supplies with puffy, comfy chairs and couches and walls of books and other reading materials. Our room was outfitted with 2 queen beds and all amenities you would expect in the States, including a "pillow menu"!! The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. The hotel is located on Drury Street which is withing a very short walking distance of all the pubs, shops and restaurants. It was a GREAT stay!!!

Attentive cheerful staff. One of the best concierge in Dublin. Superb breakfast. Rooms comfortable and roomy for city center. Impeccably clean. Nice touches like music on radio in room to greet us. Easy walk to Trinity, St. Stephens Green, Grafton Street, Temple Bar.

Location in the heart of things, but on a quieter street. Rooms large and spotless, very comfortable with temperature control, high grade toiletries, even a pillow menu! And so quiet both from interior and exterior noise, we slept very well in the comfortable bed. Terrific service with individual attention, helping with maps, things to see, even arranging taxi for airport. Good breakfast, and they will even bring it to the room. Had everything I needed, including hair dryer, but no alarm clock at any hotel in Ireland, so bring your own, though they provide wake up calls.
Pricey, but worth it.

Room Tip: We had two different rooms with king bed, facing the street (an unattractive parking garage) and bot...

This was a bit of a splurge for the hubby's 40th birthday night in the city and for what I had spent, I was hoping for better. We were apparently "upgraded" to a Junior Suite on the 5th floor but I'm not sure that was a good thing as the only difference with the room that I could spot was that there was a tiny balcony overlooking the street and with that came a noise problem. Not totally unexpected with a city centre hotel but disappointing as there must be plenty of rooms not overlooking the street and I had specifically asked for as quiet a location as possible. The JCB digger working on the street Sunday morning would have been a problem if we were booked in another night.

As it was, the room was an okay size (but not a suite by my definition- shouldn't there be a small sofa or a chaise or a seating area?!), nicely and comfortably furnished and very clean.

The bathroom was magnificent and I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to take advantage of the oversized bath. The separate walk-in shower was excellent, great pressure and plenty of fluffy towels to hand.

The breakfast next morning was available until after 11am I believe, and was most welcome. A very good buffet spread with several cooked options available.

Best thing about the hotel was the location, which suited our needs for the day and the dinner plans we had arranged elsewhere. Other times we'd go out of our way to avoid city centre locations. All in all, the hotel really was just a place to get dressed up and crash later on but we wanted the extra comfort.

It was nice, but not sure I'd pay the money to stay there again, particularly when I know there's better value to be had elsewhere. We thought we'd try it out though!

Room Tip: If you're concerned about street noise, don't be afraid to ask. Anything overlooking Drury S...

This is a really nice hotel. If you have not traveled to Europe before be prepared for some differences, but the rooms are very nice and large by European standards. The staff is excellent and very helpful. When we arrived late morning from our overnight flight, we could not check in due to the time, but they did all the paperwork, took our luggage, and escorted us to a beautiful lounge with some drinks and PC's to e-mail safe arrival. The breakfast was included and they were very good about finding food for our grand-daughter who has a food allergy. The best part is it's location. Two blocks to Temple Bar, four to Trinity College and the book of Kells. close to shopping, St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Tourist Info center, and the hop on-hop off bus.

Room Tip: Ours faced the street and were fine.

Upon arrival at the Brooks Hotel, the staff greeted me warmly and were courteous and helpful. Clean and neat rooms, travel sized must-haves in the bathroom, and a well-stocked breakfast in the morning. Good location in the city.
