“Perfect location, friendly staff and top quality rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

My wife and i stayed here for two nights. The rooms were of a very high standard and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Couldn't ask for a better location, central to everything. We ate in the bar on one evening and the standard was very good.I would definitely recommend the Gresham and we plan to return for a Christmas/New year break again this year.

It's many years since I have stayed at the Gresham. I was hugely impressed with the overall standards especially the efficiency and friendliness of the staff. I did not dine in the Restaurant but the Bar Food was delicious and beautifully presented. The bed room was better than 4star.

Stayed at the Gresham with the family for our daughters grad. at Trinity college on Tuesday night. On arrival the hotel has a cosy athmosphere and the afternoon tea was a welcome treat after a 3 hour journey. The rooms were tastefully decorated and warm. It was a great treat and very good value on the Grab one deals. Would gladly stay there again so keep the offers on. Kind regards Rita

Would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Great location for visiting the Capital city.

I had actually forgotten to post a review on here when we stayed at The Gresham, but here goes...

Not much to really stay, it is pretty average but staying at The Gresham, you do sense that it was a very luxurious/prestigious hotel once upon a time. They boast an impressive guest-list - from footballers to movie stars but I would advise not going there with the expectation of staying in an ultra elegant, prestigious hotel graced by such clientele.

The staff are helpful, the rooms are of a decent size and the hotel is well maintained. Not much more to be said. Great hotel for a weekend city break as it's conveniently located within walking distance to Dublin's famous attractions.

Room Tip: Make point of asking for a room with good wi-fi coverage.

I recently booked an overnight stay in the Gresham Hotel Dublin City as a pre-Christmas overnighter for my Mum and myself. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definately return. We have chosen to stay here every year for the past 3 years as an end of year treat as we always find the hotel staff very accomodating and the food is always superb. The hotel is also very central-The general service and atmosphere in the hotel was excellent and we found the entire stay very relaxing and enjoyable. We enjoyed afternoon tea in the Writers Lounge during the day and ate in Toddys bar in the evening and both meals were served efficently by friendly staff. Would most definately reccomend to a friend or family. Its lovely to see in times of recession a hotel who doesnt cut corners but retains its high standards.
