I only visited this hotel for brunch but was most impressed in so many ways. The service was four star. The prices were at greasy spoon level. The ambience was magnificent with views over the River Liffey and to the Dublin hills. I will be back again soon,
On the down side it is very hard to find the entrance because it isn't on a road. The car parking in the basement is v. expensive at €2.50/hr.

Having read the terrible reviews of this hotel i can't believe it was the same place i stayed. A friend and i stayed last weekend going to a concert at the O2. In terms of location it was excellent and as i usually stay in the Ballsbridge area was concerned about links into the city centre....but the Luas stop is right outdide the door and takes you very close to O'Connell St. The twin room was very clean, spacious and the ensuite roomy and spotless. Breakfast was very reasonable and had evetything you could possibly want...service was excellent.
I can't fault this hotel...especially if you're going to the 02. Definitely will return.

Stayed here last weekend with my husband and son. This hotel is very clean and seems very new. The room was big enough for us with a sofa bed and a double bed. The bar had a great atmosphere in the evening and not bad food either. This hotel is directly across from the o2 and is the last stop on the luas which made it very convienent and close to everything. The staff were very helpful and friendly especially keelan in the bar. Looking forward to staying here again.

Stayed here on Saturday night after the Muse concert.
Can't believe how handy this hotel is - just drive through the tunnel and hang a right! Avoids all city centre traffic.
Right beside the 02 Centre, and a Luis stop.
The hotel I would describe as having a minimalistic feel, but our room was very clean, well decorated and modern.
Has free wifi, and a fridge in the room.
I would happily recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay there again without hesitation.

stayed in room 340, lovely modern room, all the usual facilities, comfy beds, very clean, lovely bathroom with a big shower area. view of courtyard/enclosed garden from window.
stayed here for a concert at 02 location on hotel is right beside o2 made it very handy! also the luas stops right outside the hotel so train station to hotel in 10mins! ate in the hotel restuarant, staff there very attentive...menu good and usual price for main evening meals in an irish hotel, however portion of thin chips 4euro bit steep! and cocktails e10euro but very good, had a platter starter and singapore noodles as main fresh, tasty yum yum :)
staff always helpful and met all our requests!
I am going back for another concert in Dec, would reccommend to anyone going to the 02 as its so handy! we drank wine at hotel after the concert and watched the ques trying to get home in the luas very busy...we were glad we werent out in the cold waiting, price was about 54euro per person for the room so quite reasonable for location, and quality of hotel etc
would stay in it for a shopping trip also has luas from Gibson staright to jervis centre etc in Dublin city centre.
enjoyed me stay very much!!!

Room Tip: room 340 seems to be groundfloor and very little noise

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
