Good hotel, rooms were fairly dated not too shabby though, staff seemed friendly, room service prices not so much...but are they ever? If you wait till after 11 it's cheaper, fell asleep though too much of the black stuff. Breakfast was nice in the morning too much good choices! Overall a good stay. Paddy

My Husband and I stayed at the Gresham Hotel on a three night break in May. It is a beautiful hotel with friendly and helpful staff. We arrived at 10am and our room was ready for us which I thought was great for being so early in the morning. The room was spacious with a hall way, separate bathroom and...

I booked this hotel as a treat for my parents, one of whom is seriously ill, they had a wonderful time and were treated like royalty.

The location was close to many things. It was pricey and they were painting and refurbishing the hotel while we were there. There was no lobby seating, only in the bar or restaurant. Had to pay for the fitness center.

We only stayed one evening. Made use of the parking facility for our rented car. Walking distance from all major attractions. Felt quite safe to walk to and from the Temple Bar district late at night. Beautiful bedroom, spacious bathroom. Wifi in room.

This hotel was disappointing especially considering the reputation. The bad bits first. The room felt old, tired and the linen smelt of....vomit! The door kept moving with any slight movement. The mattress was old and needed changing. It was one of those that made both parties role into the middle! Now the good bits. The staff especially Zara and Aleks...

Everything a hotel should provide when staying in a strange city. A couple of minor niggles mean it's not yet Claridge's, but I've certainly paid far more for far worse and The Gresham seems to be on its way up with its charming interior, comfortable rooms and some really hardworking and friendly staff.

There is no better feeling on a trip to Dublin than walking out of the front door of The Gresham on to a bussling O'Connell Street, with the landmark Needle and Post Office right there.

Hotel is located on a major street in Dublin. It is directly across the street from the Hop on and off Bus origin in the city. Airport buses also leave from this street..O'Carroll street. Rooms were clean, breakfast was varied and staff was friendly. The neighborhood abounds with shops, restaurants ,and pubs.
