“Second occasion to stay as a couple”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Still retains some of it's oldworld charm, notably when stepping into the beautiful elevator.
Afternoon tea should be tried, Staff very attentive and well-trained, Toddies Bar ideal for a drink . Hotel very well situated for Gate and Abbey Theatres.

Room Tip: Roomsat back have miserable view, but we did not stay for that purpose.

This hotel is beautiful. It is so central to all the 'touristy' things and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The only slight downside was that I stayed in a basic room which was quite old fashioned. Personally I like modern amenities, so if I was staying for more than a day or 2 I would upgrade to a better room..

Room was very dated, good bar area, location excellent. stayed twice however would choose another hotel next time i go to dublin. Was there on a package there should have been champaign and cupcakes in the room on arrival however had to ring reception and these were not delivered until the next day and the 'cupcakes' were muffins that were left over from breakfast!

Room Tip: ask for a more modern room as only half the hotel has been renovated

Beautiful hotel - lovely public areas with nice bars and comfy sofas. Check in staff really pleasant and helpful. We had a Lavery room which had a big bedroom and bathroom, spotlessly clean with tea/coffee facilities, chocolates and water. Bed was very comfy!!

This was our third visit to the Gresham, have tried other similar hotels in Dublin and have now settled on this one. We could not fault anything, from the friendly efficient service, to the cleanliness of the room. It made our pre Christmas visit very enjoyable.

Room Tip: We were on 5th floor, a Lavery room, no disturbance by anyone. No view but we did not mind that.

had a really enjoyable overnight stay in The Gresham Hotel, Dublin, Ireland on Dec. 9/10 this year. It was old-time elegance & hospitality at its best. Arrived 3pm, had a drink in the very welcoming bar, followed by a luxurious cream-tea. Went out to a show in The O2 theatre & returned to the Gresham by taxi around 11pm. Had a lovely night-cap & slept soundly in a very comfortable bed room. Had a very tasty breakfast the following morning before checking out. It was a most enjoyable overnight stay, very welcoming & the service & hospitality was of a very high order.

Will definitely re-visit The Gresham soon. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Just check at reception!!!

Having just returned from a one night stay at the Gresham, I could firmly recommend the Gresham hotel. This hotel is placed on the Main Street and has a warm welcome feeling once you enter the lobby and the feel of leaving the city behind you at the front door. The hotel is quite large but the staff appear to have time for the guests and always have a warm smile. Food and drink is reasonably priced for a major city and is of a good standard. Breakfast is a mixture of hot and cold with the hot food being served for you. If you have time to spare, the hotel lobby is a great place to have a drink or coffee and to relax after a busy day in Dublin.
