“Really loved this hotel and will definitely be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

I booked a one night stay here for myself and my sister who were attending a concert in Dublin and we were both very happy with our stay! When I arrived the receptionist staff were very friendly and accommodating and the whole hotel has such an open, modern yet warm feel to it. The reception is on the 3rd floor but there is a beautiful glass elevator which makes it very accessible. Everything in the hotel seemed very clean and comfortable and the decor had a lovely artistic touch. Myself and my sister were both in awe of our room. We booked a regular room and it was stunning! The whole room and bathroom was absolutely spotless. The bathroom had a lovely shower and such elegant finishes. There was lots of closet space, tea and coffee making facilities, safe, clothes hanger, complimentary water bottle and a proper hairdryer. We had a big window in our room though although our view wasn't the best but as we were only staying one night this didn't at all bother us. The only thing that was a little off putting was we were going to a concert at the Aviva stadium that night and I felt that the Aviva was a bit father away than the hotels website said it was and it was a fair bit of a walk. In hindsight we should have gotten a taxi but even so the hotels receptionist was happy to give us directions and we got there eventually. Before we left for the concert we got dinner at the hemi bar below. The waiting staff were well dressed, friendly and efficient and the food was lovely and fresh. The bar was spacious, bright and a very pleasant atmosphere overall. The portions were a tiny bit small for what you were paying but we were still happy with the meal. The morning after we went back to the restaurant area and had coffee and croissants on the terrace overlooking the O2 arena. The terrace is a lovely place to sit (on a nice day!) and again we were happy with the food and service.

The only thing that might cause an issue for some people visiting this hotel is the parking situation. There is a car park literally right behind the hotel that is very easy to find as there is clear road markings for it. Because the car park is not actually owned by the hotel you do need to pay for it but guests get a special rate. I paid €14 for a days parking which I didn't have a problem with because we were only staying one night. But if you are intending to stay for a good few nights and want to bring your car then it might become an extra expense for you so just keep that in mind. There is a luas stop in front of the hotel which is handy although we didn't actually go into the city centre so I can't exactly judge how far away it is.

Overall this hotel would definitely suit anyone like me in their early twenties who want a nice place to stay without absolutely breaking the bank. For the amount I paid for the room I felt like I got what I paid for. I paid for a nice 4 star hotel and that's what I got so I was very happy. The hotel is absolutely ideal if you are going to a concert at the O2 arena because it's literally right next door. Whenever I go back to Dublin again I'll definitely stay here because I was very happy with it.

Stayed at the Gibson for two nights in the end of september. Very nice and modern hotel with good service. The room was rather large, but the beds and pillows were very hard so I didn't sleep to well. The restaurant/bar was nice and the breakfast was decent, but nothing more. The location was pretty good near the river.

Great location if going to gig in O2 otherwise need to use Luas to get to city centre especially at night. Stylish environment, spacious room but very poor service in bar area. Glass lift gives good views of parts of city - should go higher!

Fabulous hotel, great staff, rooms, food, bar and location. It is beside the O2 and the Luas is just outside the front doors. the parking is expensive 14 euros for 24 hours but it is really handy as you can just get the lift from the carpark up into the hotel. The rooms are really well soundproofed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 6th floor with a balcony and a view of the river

my boyfriend booked this hotel as a suprise. i wasnt sure on it at first as of the location but once inside i changed my mind. staff was really helpful and they let us check in early. The rooms were big and the beds were really comfortable. even though it was near a main road you couldnt hear the traffic. the hotel was in distance of good transport links as it is at the start of the tram line which was a good price and ran through the whole city. i would really recommend staying at this hotel and would go back.

Room Tip: any room is good

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Chic and understated with a music pedigree that runs deep, the gibson hotel Dublin is the ultimate urban retreat. Music lovers, art junkies, food fanatics - whatever your passion it's right on our doorstep. We do sleeping, meeting, dining, gigging, touring, wedding and relaxing really really well. We mix all these things with a fresh, energetic, slightly off centre approach and we know it works. Exhibitions, supporting local artists, urban weddings and the odd celebrity are elements of what makes us different to the normal Dublin Hotel. You will find our staff friendly, responsive and happy - there is a secret to this that we can't possibly share. The gibson hotel is the ideal location to explore the city and planning your stay is easy. The M1 and M50 are 8 minutes away via the Port Tunnel and we have ample covered parking for our guests. With the luas stop right outside our front door Connolly train station is only 8 minutes away and Heuston train station is a short 20 minutes from the hotel. The Luas will take you to the City centre in 10 minutes or if you prefer to take in the views of the River Liffey a brisk 15 minute walk along the quays will bring you to O'Connell street, the heart of Dublin city. Great beds, 100MB complimentary WiFi, a gym, relaxation area, restaurant, bar and meeting space are all part of the deal. The gibson hotel is modern yet comfortable, it's different and it's better, it's large, it's friendly and it's a building that is alive with great people from the moment you set foot until the moment you leave. ... more   less
