“Loved it, except for forgotten wake-up call!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2008

My mom and I stayed at the Camden Court for two nights in June. The hotel is easily reached by bus from the airport (we got off about a block away), and very conveniently located for dining and site-seeing—just a minute or two on foot from St. Stephen’s Green. Our twin room was clean and comfy, bathroom fully functional (and rather nice, actually!), and street noise minimal. There was a sign on the main entrance alerting patrons of construction, and I once took a wrong turn in our hallway and ended up in some kind of unfinished area, which was a bit weird, but we didn’t hear any construction noise or see any workmen while we were there. Not sure if the place had wi-fi, but for non-laptoppers they had coin-operated internet in the lobby; it was expensive, though—a euro per 8 minutes, I think (more than the local internet cafes). Meant to go for a dip and the pool looked nice, but we never got around to it. I was perturbed that they charged a connection fee (35 cents or something) for calling freephone numbers. I was even more perturbed that they forgot our wake-up call! We’d set phone alarms for back up (of course), so it didn’t matter really, but if we’d been relying on it and missed our pre-paid tour for that day as a result, I would’ve been extremely annoyed. I complained when we checked out and the man at the desk apologized but didn’t offer compensation and basically passed the buck by saying his colleague was supposed to have made the call, he hadn’t been in at the time, so he would have a word with her. Oh well. Overall we had a really nice stay, and I would recommend it. (And check out nearby Kitty’s Bistro—DELISH!)

We stayed in the hotel for one night with our 8 month old baby and thought it was excellent. We arrived early saturday morning and parking was no problem. Staff at reception were very welcoming and friendly and arranged an earlier check in for us - 12 rather than 2pm. Rooms were perhaps on the small side but they were very clean and well maintained. The leisure centre was brilliant for a city centre hotel and the swimming pool was well heated with a toddler/baby area sectioned of from the main pool. Staff were very accommodating to all our requests e.g heating baby food. Location was great - a short walk to grafton street/st stephens green. We will definitely return to this hotel next time we are in Dublin.

This is a very nice hotel but I would not stay there again. In June it is warm enough that you must open the windows. We change rooms twice because of the noise from the street and court yard. Our friends also had the same problem. We did not sleep much during our three day stay. They need air conditioning or fans. Also the only transportation to the airport is via taxi. We order one thru the front desk for four adults and lots of luggage but a small car showed up the next morning. We managed to stuff everything into the back plus luggage on our laps for the long ride.

We stayed at this hotel from May 9-13, 2008. The location was perfect - close to nearby attractions, central, and surrounded by lots of shopping and pubs.

The room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. We had a room overlooking the courtyard. During our stay, part of the courtyard was being repaired, which meant construction noise from 8:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M., Monday - Saturday. This was a bit of a nuisance, as we slept with the window open to improve air circulation (the room did not have air conditioning).

The ice machine was handy, but the room did not come with an ice bucket. We were 'urban camping', and had brought a collapsible camping sink/bucket, which when filled with ice, worked as an impromptu refrigerator.

We did not eat any of our meals at the hotel. We made use of the Fresh supermarket (better selection than the Tesco Express), just down the street. This was also handy for a few beers ;-)

The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating.

We booked this hotel through priceline-europe and got a good rate, much lower than anywhere I had checked for a central Dublin hotel.

The shuttle to the airport was merely a 5-minute walk away, which was also convenient. Apparently, there is a city bus that has a stop in front of the hotel or quite near to it, but we never made use of this.

  • Liked — The central location.
  • Disliked — Poor climate control, if the window couldn't be opened.

Hmm, not bad, needs some improvement though. Arrived to find hotel car park packed, was lucky to come across someone leaving just as I was about to give up, definitely didn't relish the idea of trying to find alternative parking in that area of Dublin. Friendly and helpful staff at check-in. Decent sized, well kitted out and clean room overlooking courtyard. Room was reasonably quiet . (Our friends had a room overlooking the street, this room was very noisy in comparison to ours). Some building work still ongoing in the lobby at night, didn't really effect us. Went out for a meal, arrived back in pleasant hotel bar, had one drink, was ignored for 15 minutes at understaffed bar while looking for second drink and decided to go to bed instead. Left a number of disgruntled but more determined people still waiting to be served. Discovered on going to bed that my side of the bed had a large slump in it, like a huge man had sat on the edge of the bed and broken it. Made the best of it (slept ok) and reported it to reception on check-out but felt that housekeeping should have spotted the problem before I reported it.
The breakfast buffet was a bit of a shambles with a log jam at the toaster/juice machine leading to lengthy queues which got progressively worse as the late breakfasters arrived en-masse for the last half hour of breakfast service. I had up to then breakfasted leisurely and reasonably well on fruit, yogurt and cereal and decided that the queue was too long for me to bother going for bacon and eggs. But I was annoyed at the poor organisation which forced me to make the choice.
Overall impression was great location, pleasant building, friendly staff but needs better management to give real value for money.

I stayed there with my husband and my mum for a ceremony in Dublin. Had chosen the hotel with Tripadvisor and wasnt disappointed.

Very nice 3 stars hotel.

Extremely helpful and efficient staff to check in. Had booked a double and a single room and discovered 2 singles. The change was done immediately and with a smile. During all this, we lost one of the room key but this was sorted out very quickly with no bother at all.

Room are spacious, clean, a bit aged though but very comfortable. We both had room at the back so very quiet too for an hotel in center of Dublin (and in a very busy street). Bathroom fine.

Room service efficient: despite the fact that mum didnt order breakfast the night before she decided for a breakfast in her room in the morning. They apologized to the fact that it wouldnt be quick as they had to serve the breakfast which were ordered 1st and gave us a delay of 30-40 min. Breakfast arrived in 15 min.

Restaurant extremely nice. Service perfect. Food good and good choice. Lack of a bit of atmosphere as it was nearly empty but it was just what we needed after a very busy day. Very relaxing!!

Location: nice and busy street, lots of cafe (to have a lovely and cheaper breakfast), pubs, restaurant, little shops, 10 min pleasant walk to Stephens Green and Grafton St.

Overall, as a 4 stars hotel woman, I will probably come back in this hotel in Dublin as it was a perfect 3 stars, clean, comfy, handy, and less than £100 in center of Dublin! Just need a bit of sparkle!

The Hotel was excellent, I would definately use this hotel again.
They gave secure luggage storage for us as we had early flight in (could not check in) and a late flight out (had to check out.)

We did not use the gym because of the amount of walking we did around Dublin itself. I was going to use the swimming pool but read in the brochure that you needed a swimming hat to swim (male or female) so I did not bother with this.

We did not eat breakfast here, there is a Tesco Metro and a Fresh supermarket within 2 minutes walk of the Hotel so we got our breakfast from the bakery inside there. There is a pub next door which didn't seem to make excesive noise to keep us awake (we were on the 6th floor.)

The room itself was very hot but the staff provided us with a fan after I asked for one. An ice machine was provided on the 4th floor (6 altogether,) there was a notice saying not to use glass but they did not provide any cups - their holders were empty on both days that I went to it.

Overall a very nice stay, excellent staff, just seemed a very long walk - 40 mins when we got off the airport transfer bus just above the Spire on O'Connell Street (maybe we got off too early.) This transfer bus at 10EURO return is highly reccommended.
