“Wonderful visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I loved this hotel. Had never stayed there before. It's location must be one of it's top selling points. Near to the Aircoach stop, to and from airport, round the corner from all the best restaurants and shops etc. Easy walk to the Dart train line or car hire offices if you are going out of town. There is even a car park opposite the front of the hotel, and reductions for guests for overnight parking. We went off to the races in Punchestown, and had a car for two days. The staff are great, helpful and courteous all the time. Lovely breakfast, fresh fruit, yum jams and nutty brown breads, as well as cooked breakfast if wanted. Had very nice dinner one night too. The only thing i would say was that the mattress was a little too firm, as i am Could go on, but don't want it to be fully booked next time I visit Dublin!

Brooks is located within walking distance of most everything in central Dublin. The car was helpfully unloaded in front of the hotel and we then parked it easily in the multi-storey car park directly opposite the hotel at a discounted rate.
The rooms are well appointed and reasonably large as are the bathrooms. The materials and decoration throughout are excellent (even slightly “funky”), and the bed superb – in short the rooms are comfortable and a nice balance for what is, after all, a city centre hotel. The staff are top notch, helpful without being fussy and nothing seems to be too much trouble.
The restaurant is very good – the food was delicious and the atmosphere relaxed. And not just at dinner, the breakfast was a joy in its own right – they even give you the recipe for some of the dishes, and there are many home-made choices available.
Departure was as easy as the arrival – out of the car park opposite to the front of the hotel to load and then en route. A satnav is probably a good idea as Brooks is nestled in a tight network of small streets in the centre of the city, an excellent hotel with genuinely nice people, really good food, and close to everything. This is a classy hotel which does not feel the need to shout about itself.

Brooks hotel is a good hotel in a fantastic location in the centre of Dublin. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Our room was spacious and clean. Unfortunately our room was situated on the back side of the hotel and each morning we were awoken by the recycling bins filled with glass being dumped. I would suggest to anyone booking at the Brooks Hotel to request an even numbered room (street facing side) on a higher floor. Bathroom was spacious. Free wifi was good although spotty in some locations. The hotel location is walking distance from most tourist attractions. I would return to the Brooks hotel in the future. If it wasn't for the noise factor (not the hotels fault) I would rate the hotel higher.

LOCATION: excellent, very central yet secluded from heavy traffic and noisy bars. Near to everything.
STAFF: very friendly, polite & helpful.
CONDITION: needs some renovations. Some rooms are better than others. Small rooms.
FASCILITIES: all you need. Free WiFi.
PRICES: very reasonable.
BREAKFAST: NOT impressive. The heavy on carbs & fats English breakfast makes you feel guilty that you assaulted your heart and arteries.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with an odd number because rooms with even numbers face the street. Rooms o...

Perfect t location in the centre of old Dublin. Walked everywhere from here. Didn't find it very noisy despite other reviews. Bed comfortable. Shower pressure and bathrooms lovely. Breakfast was great. Often not the case but here it is well worth it. Jams to die for! The rooms are spacious and free wifi always welcome! Would definitely stay here next time in Dublin.

I stayed here as a solo traveller on my first trip to Dublin. This is a very well-run hotel in a great location. The bed was very comfortable and the room spacious and affordable by European standards. As others have mentioned, the staff is warm and welcoming. It was a bit noisy outside at closing time but it didn't detract from my experience. If you want to save a few euros, it is quite easy to take the public bus from the airport. Breakfast is great. Highly recommended.

Brooks Hotel is run by a great team. They make you feel right at home. It is in a perfect location
in centre city Dublin with comfortable large rooms. We just spent one night last week but
had stayed 5 nights back in 2010 when we were stranded by the Icelandic volcanic ash
eruption. We were welcomed back by Tom and Conor. This visit was as wonderful as the first.
