Very clean modern and open building right next to the O2 so really handy for concerts. The Luas line immediately outside means easy access to town if you don't fancy the 20 mins walk along the river . The Aviva stadium is close too.
The only downside for me was the reception setup, which at busy times can appear to be a bit a queue waiting for a bus! The staff themselves were friendly and helpful when you eventually got to them but as we had prepaid and were simply waiting for a car park ticket we found ourselves at the end of a long queue. As I say that was a minor point because overall the hotel is well priced, ultra trendy and quiet at night(really important to us older ones who don't want to party all night). Well recommended for anyone who wants to be slightly out of town.
- 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
