“Clean Confortable Friendly Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is spacious, clean and comfortable in a quiet location. Close to the temple bar area (10 min walk). About 30 min walk to the convention center. Reasonably priced. The included hot buffet breakfast was superb with a lot of choices, good tea selection and a "made to order" egg counter. Everyone was very friendly and tried hard to help. I had my boarding pass emailed to them and they brought a printed copy to my room.

Tip 1: the hairdryer is not in the batrhoom, but located in a bottom drawer in the coat closet (along with a Bible).
Tip 2: When you settle your bill, pay in Euros and not in dollars or your country's currency. I noted that the credit card bank gave me a more favorable rate than merchants.

MY ONE COMPLAINT: I had travelled overnight and arrived at the hotel around 9.30 A.M. The front desk man was not very accommodating and said that rooms will not be available until 1 P.M., although many were checking out while I was waiting. I came back an hour later (10.30) and found a more senior guy at the check in counter who immediately gave me and my colleague rooms.

We spent a few days at this modern and clean hotel in the centre of Dublin.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. The rroms are well kept and one finds everything needed. There is free WiFi access which proves very useful when organizing trips or book restaurants.
The bed was very comfortable and not too soft.
Guests can use a well (though not to the highest standards) equipped gym including swimming pool / sauna which is not in the hotel but two streets along. The gym needs a bit of refurbishing but serves the purpose more than enough.
Alltogether a very nice and reasonably priced hotel in the middle of town which can be recommended.

Room Tip: avoid the lift area and try to get a room at the end of the corridor (to avoid hell when drunken gue...

I stayed at the Radisson for 6 weeks and it's been a pleasant experience. I haven't had any problems with any of the rooms I was staying in. Staff was extremely friendly and always willing to help. Hotel is very central so you can get to many bars and restaurants in a few minutes. The only downside is the swimming pool - it is tiny and overcrowded during peak hours. Still, such pool is better than no pool at all! Overall, I would definitely choose it again if I was to go to Dublin in the future.

Stayed for business in a business room which was spacious included a wonderful breakfast buffet, daily newspaper delivery and a Nespresso machine in the room. The staff was friendly and helpful, they went out of the way to move me to another business room due to bad Internet connection in the first room.

Really excellent service, nice quality rooms and lovely breakfast buffet. The area around the hotel isn't brilliant, but you aren't far from the main part of central Dublin and everything close by. I stay regularly and the staff are always polite, professional and go the extra mile to make everything as easy as possible. They could work on improving the bar food, but thats just a minor point.

The hotel is minutes away from Stephens Green so the location is superb.
Check in was very efficient and the room was spotless and bright. Showers in the bathroom are excellent too!
We had drinks in the bar which had a great atmosphere also but chose to have breakfast a few minutes walk away in Whitefriar Grill. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Overall superb location in an excellent hotel with parking accessed from the hotel at only €10 for 24 hrs. Brilliant value!
