Stayed in Buswells Hotel on a Monday night it was busy there which is always a good sign, just had bar bits to eat which were good, the rooms and beds were comfortable, breakfast in the morning was very good, this hotel is in a central location, we enjoyed our stay 👍🏼

I have stayed at Buswells twice and it is very welcoming. The staff is friendly and accommodating in every way. Rooms are a little small but very clean and comfortable. The building has old-world charm with a cozy red leather and dark wood pub downstairs, where locals gather after work for a pint, or pints plural. There is also a...

This is an old small hotel in downtown Dublin. The staff is friendly, the rooms are small but clean. The breakfast is excellent. The location is also very good, but do not expect a Hilton type of hotel.

While you can't beat the location of Buswells as an easy base for sightseeing, we were generally unimpressed with the experience of staying here. The staff switched our room (to a smaller one) after we complained about jack hammering outside our initial room which basically shook the walls. Even with the size differential we appreciated the move. However, the front...

Friendly staff, clean quiet bedroom (no. 98) and a large tasty breakfast. Hotel lobby is cosy with a real fire and the Reception staff were very helpful in calling a taxi and giving us information on buses. Rooms are a bit dated but ours had tea/coffee making facilities, trouser press, hairdryer and a very comfy large bed. Free WIFI throughout...

I don't thinks I can say enough about how great our visit to Dublin was because of this hotel! The room was modern and very comfortable, the location is an easy walk to everything we wanted to see in the city and the staff is excellent and attentive to your every need. I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed in Buswell's hotel in January for the first time and was very impressed. It is ideally located behind Grafton Street so it is right in the center of things and very near the shops and landmarks. The staff are very friendly and helpful and very welcoming. On the next trip to Dublin will definitely stay here! The food is...

I stayed at Buswells for two nights last week during a short trip to Ireland. This hotel is a jewel in so many ways. We arrived at 5:00 am after an overnight flight, and were welcomed with hot coffee. While we waited for our rooms to be readied, we walked across the street and visited the government buildings and lovely...

Fantastic location, cozy, clean. My only complaint is that since it's an old building, you can hear everything going on in the room above yours. Every step the people took above me was loud and clear. Otherwise, great stay.
