“very plesant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

stayed here for the concert of robbie Williams, we had booked this hotel a very long time before we knew he would give a concert so we payed a very good price for the rooms. the hotel is very close to the aviva stadion and also close to the train station. The rooms are very nice and you have everything you need. Reception were very nice and helpt us well with all the questions that we had. we will return to this hotel

Hi just cancelled my stay here for sat 29th June, as I stayed here in September to attend lady Gaga concert, it cost 179 euro, Now they have put the price up to 249 euro per night ,for the Rod Stewart concert... GREEDY, TOTAL DISGRACE,AND A MAJOR CASE OF RIP OF IRELAND ....The hotel itself is of an ok standard ,You are paying 5 star prices for 2 star accommodation, is in a great location, if attending Aviva stadium....But by know way worth the money..Much nicer places to stay in the area or get the dart from the city...would not recommend !!!!!

Thank you for your review. In common with most businesses, prices increase when demand is high, to compensate for rates which are frequently loss making at times of low demand.

First time I've stayed here, and I was quite impressed by the exterior. Unfortunately the interior doesn't quite match up, with staff on check-in 'distracted' and quite offhand. The room I stayed in would be best described as 'tired' with a little more attention to cleaning needed, particularly in the bathroom. Overall, it's okay for a night or two, but there are vastly superior hotels in the same price range in the area, so this was a bit of a let down.

I have stayed in the Sandymount Hotel 4 times now. The hotel is in a lovely part of the city and very close to the center about 10 euro in a taxi. The hotel offers a shuttle bus when various events are on for a very small fee. I walked down to Sandymount Village within a matter of minutes. Highly recommend the hotel. Reception are lovely and very helpful.

Hi,

I cant sing the praises of this hotel enough. Without a doubt you would know it was a family hotel. The staff are absolutely amazing and so helpful. My daughter had broken her foot a couple of days before we arrived and they literally couldn't have done enough to help us. Food is divine and rooms are beautiful The staff in this hotel is an absolute credit to the owners. I would highly recommend this hotel everyone

thks for a great stay.

Room Tip: Room was perfect for our needs... it was in the front of the hotel :)

Weve now stayed in this hotel 3 times, it's based in the lovely location of sandymount, very close to the Aviva stadium and road dart stadium. It's roughly 30 minutes walk to st Stephens green and grafton street, however if you want a quiter night it's just ten minute walk from sandymount village including Marios restaurant and the (well worth a visit) Ryan's pub. On our most recent visit we were based on the lower floor, the room was clean and had all the basics you would expect. The only criticisms I have were when we arrived the receptionist was friendly but weaid in cash and she didnt give us a receipt we had to ask. the hair dryer which looks like it hasn't been updated since the mid 90s (it was very slow and if you put it on a higher temp it cut off after 2 minutes and took ages to cool again) I only have short hair but if you've got longer hair I'd suggest bringing your own or allowing an hour or so to dry! Also the 2nd night the hot water in our room didn't seem to work which was a shame as the shower when it did work was excellent! Despite these three minor things highly recommended!

Disappointing stay, characterised by inefficient and disinterested service. Check-in took 5 minutes while the only receptionist dealt with a customer on the phone. Hot food service stopped at 9:30, and at 9:35 I was offered no alternatives. Nasty keg Guinness and peanuts for dinner ! An argument at breakfast as to whether it was included or not - it certainly wasn't worth paying for, and the service was downright chaotic. "That man needs a cup ... remind me, was it coffee you wanted?" Oh, and the lift was broken. I won't be back.

Room Tip: Executive rooms are comfortable, but a long way from reception and restaurant.

Thank you for your review. There are usually two Receptionists on duty. Hot food service ends at 9.30pm, but normally there is leeway until 9.45pm and thereafter sandwiches are provided. I apologise for your experience, and your comments will be brought to the attention of the relevant departments.
