Just home today from a two night break in The Gresham. Had a brilliant time and would most definitely return. Staff are very friendly. Room was great. Great location. Food excellent. Booked this break through NIR and brillant price which also included first class rail. Would definitely return to Dublin and would stay in The Gresham.

This was my first stay at the Gresham but on this experience it will not be my last. As you walk into the foyer you can feel the luxury and opulence of a bygone era, you can imagine the aristocracy arriving in O' Connell street and the bus boys carrying everything in. Its not quite like that any more but...

Location excellent, very central. Accomodation and car parking very reasonable. Staff friendly and incredibly helpful. Was able to accomodate my daughter's fussy eating habits. Requested a room with twin beds and a bath...and was granted my request. An extremely satisfied customer. Will definitely stay there again.

Being from dublin, we decided to be home tourists for a change. We chose the Gresham as it always had a reputation of luxurious and is right in the center of the city. To say we were disappointed is an understatment. Room was awful, old and tattered. The mattress on the bed dipped in the middle and was extremely uncomfortable....

Stayed in the Gresham Hotel for 2 nights at the end of January. We stayed in the Lavery Wing which was lovely. The Gresham never disappoints! Once again a very pleasant experience! Highly recommended!

I stay here about twice a month, I have tried other hotels, but the Gresham has the best mix of room, service and quality. Breakfast is always good and the evening bar welcoming. There is quite a variance in room quality and noise levels try and get on a higher floor at the back.

Stayed for 2 nights on February 16/17. Access to the car park is complicated. Why do Dublin City Council prevent motorists from turning right at the Pro Cathederal from Marlborough Street?
