“Does exactly what it says on the tin...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

The mespil is good value for a clean, centrally located hotel. The rooms are always tidy, clean, the bathroom spotless, and I've never had a problem with noise. I've stayed here a few times for nights out and it's perfect. Can walk to Grafton St & home again, no problems.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

We stayed here for one night in November and it was our first time to try this location. We got a very good deal on a voucher scheme and bottle of prosecco and chocolates were included in the room price. Car park is free and usually you will find a spot I think unless you are checking in very late. Our room was a good size with double and single bed. View was of the back of the hotel which means it is quieter as the front is on a busy main road. Bathroom was basic with little room for storage of toothbrushes etc. Heat was high in the room but radiator is controlled by you so easy to switch off. Lily O'Brien chocolates left in the room and we had our bottle of prosecco in the bar. Breakfast was ok, nothing to write home about but service was quick and tables were available for everyone that turned up. Would recommend if you are heading into town, going to a match in Aviva or concert in RDS. Very reasonable rates and good location.

Room Tip: If you want to be in a quieter room, ask for the back rather than the front rooms, views are not as...

The staff were very welcoming, the room was a fine size and great shower along with comfortable bed and quiet location. For the money it really is outstanding. I wouldn't even consider anywhere else to stay in Dublin. It's only a 10/15 min walk into St. Stephen's Green where there's loads to do, shopping, pubs, restaurants etc...

stayed here a few times, latest Dec 2012, and find that the hotel is fairly convenient for dublin city centre and probably one of the most central hotels with free parking (that i'm aware of...) rooms are clean but the last room we had, the en-suite could have done with a bit of a refurb. overall, we cant complain and will stay here again as it is only a 10 min walk to grafton street area. also, reception staff are friendly and helpful.

Thank you for your recent review of the Mespil Hotel Dublin.

Apologies about your ‘cold shower’ that is quiet unusual but I will mention it to our maintenance team. Not sure if you could kindly remember your number and email it to me as that would ensure we get the right room – thank you. However you mentioned that your stay was very good – so I hope on your next visit we will surprise you with a nice hot shower.

Thank you for taking the time to post your recent review.
