Family members who had previously stayed at Buswells recommended it strongly - and they were right! We'd booked a four night "long weekend" stay on bed-and breakfast basis, and I think we got real value for money.
Initial impressions on check-in were very positive. The Reception area was warm and welcoming, and we were shown to a spacious, characterful room. The whole ambience of the hotel was stylish and quirky - far removed from the blandness and uniformity of many city centre hotels.
We had asked for a quiet room - that's exactly what we got. It was well equipped, with a large bed, ample storage space, a room safe and a spacious ensuite bathroom. I had seen other reviews mention the temperamental hot water supply - we had no such problems in Room 99.
Breakfast was served in the comfortable dining room, and it was very good. Lots of choice, good quality, and with cheerful and friendly waitresses.
Buswells' location could hardly be better. we were right in the heart of the city, with so many attractions just a short walk away.
So what could have made it even better? Well, as other reviewers have noted, the wi-fi arrangements are a bit clunky. And - for a visitor from the UK - prices in the bar and restaurant seemed high - but that's a reality of Dublin, not just this very good hotel.
I would happily revisit Buswells, and i can honestly recommend its location, charm, and very helpful employees.
