I stayed at Camden Court Hotel in June 13' for 4 nights. Camden Court Hotel is in a good location of Dublin. It's a 10 minute walk to Grafton St. district, Dublin bus tour stop (hop on hop off bus) and a 15 minute walk to the Temple Bar district. I arrived at the hotel at 8 am and check in was not available (no problem). The front desk held on to my luggage until check in was available at 2 pm. The lobby is nice and modern with plenty of comfortable chairs to sit on.
When the room was ready upon walking into the room it was clean but average. A clean room is all I ever ask for, anything more is great. My room had a safe to hold my passport and other items. My friends room did not have a safe, when we asked the front desk why, we were told no rooms had safes. I guess I had a special room? The hotel offers free Wi-Fi in the rooms and common areas, however you have to pay to use the computers in the lobby. The hotel offers breakfast for 10 Euro extra, however breakfast does not start until 7 am. If you have a tour set up for the morning, the hotels breakfast starts too late. Both my tours of Ireland pick up time was 7 am and had to walk 10 minutes to Grafton Street. The hotel has an indoor swimming pool, I did not use it because guest have to wear a swimming cap to cover their hair and you have to pay extra for it. Kind of a silly policy considering there were many children in the pool probably urinating in it, but I guess hair is more of a problem for them. The hotel does offer currency exchange but would not take any of my 100 USD bills, they only take $20 USD bills which I did not have on hand. There is a nice bar next to the hotel called The Bleeding Horse which is pretty lively on the weekends.
My stay at Camden Court Hotel was average. The hotel is in a good location of Dublin and the rooms were clean. If I came back to Dublin I would probably stay at another hotel that offers breakfast earlier than 7 am and does not make you wear a swimming cap in the pool.
Pick a room facing the rear of the hotel as it will be quieter than the street facing side.

In relation to the in-room safes, we do have a very small amount of rooms with this facilitiy however we do not advise guests nor advertise this as we cannot gaurantee this to the guest on arrival. We do however offer this service for all guests wishing ensure the safety of their valuables at the reception safe facility.
We are sorry to hear you missed out on breakfast. We do offer a continental breakfast before 7am on a request basis for groups and guests on earlier departures. Once we are made aware of this the night before this is not a problem. We will note this going forward to make guests more aware of this service in the future.
Our leisure centre indeed has a cleanliness policy which requires all guests to wear a swimming hat. This is solely to keep the pool as clean as possible for the enjoyment of our guests. We are sorry this deterred you from using this facility.
We do hope we can restore your faith in our hotel and welcome you back in the near future.
Your feedback is very much appreciated. Please do not hesitate to contact myself directly for anything at all at email@example.com - Kind Regards, Rebekah Lavelle
