From beginning to end this was a great experience, we were attending a concert in the 3 Arena and were looking for a good location. 5 minute walk to the Luas which took us right there,word of warning the queue for tickets was huge so get there early. Had a quick bite in the lounge before leaving, delicious! Great staff very attentive Our room was decent,clean and the bottled water a nice addition. We had breakfast next day and left well fed. Really cant fault the hotel, staff were great, food excellent. We will be back!

Couldn't fault our stay here and will keep coming back! Staff at breakfast were so friendly, quick check in and room was perfect!! I felt sorry for how sone of the staff were treated by other guests, just because they are qg oud service doesnt mean they are any less human than us, certainly don't deserve to be interrupted, barked at or haggled with over a room rate! See you again soon!

I cannot fault the Gresham at all. I love it. Every time I am in Dublin I pop in - whether it's to meet up with friends for a delicious breakfast or lunch or just for a drink in the bar. I love it. Nothing is ever a problem for any member of staff. It has transformed over the years and the lobby is stunning, but it has never lost it's edge for me and I will always make o point of calling in when I am in Dublin. The staff and so friendly and accommodating - the last time I was there I had my 2 children with me and there was a proper fuss made of the 2 boys when we were having a delicious breakfast there. Nothing was a hassle for the staff at all. It's a long standing tradition of mine to call in to the Gresham and I will continue to do so. As soon as the travel restrictions are lifted I know where I will be heading first !!!!!

Stayed in this hotel early March as a last minute arrangement, usually stay elsewhere. I wasn't disappointed, my plans were up in the air with the various restrictions being put in place and I was trying to get home. The staff in this hotel could not do enough for me, nothing was a problem. stored my luggage, printed off boarding passes more than once without issue Great breakfast in the bar, plenty of pretty much everything you could need. When the world is back to normal I will most definitely be back

Such a shame to see such an iconic landmark in Dublin gone so impersonal. We stayed here back in December while attending a concert in the 3Arena and to say we were disappointed is an understatement. We were just people checking in not guests. Receptionists lacked very little knowledge of the general area, bar staff didnt engage and bar prices were expensive even by Dublin standards. The lobby was nice with the Christmas tree. Our room was fine, decent beds and fairly comfortable but basic rooms. A decent size bathroom. Breakfast was disgraceful, the main restaurant was full and we were shown to another area, the cold options were plentiful but dont expect a hot breakfast...it was withered looking and Im still waiting on the pot of tea, despite asking for it twice !! Wouldnt stay again, unfortunately the Gresham is no longer anything special and staff are not at all friendly.
