Reviewed July 14, 2009

Booked this hotel via hotels.com which was £90.00 for a twin room. A great price as it was the weekend that Bruce Springsteen was there which was the purpose of the trip. Hotel very modern both inside and out, which was to be expected. Nicely appointed bedroom and bathroom with very comfortable bed and a lovely shower. Everything was clean and modern. As was only there for a short period, didn't really get to see or sample much of the facilities on offer. The breakfast was buffet style with plenty of the usual fayre.
Hotel is very convenient for the city centre as the tram stops right outside the hotel, so you shouldn't have any problems finding your way around.
I would happily recommend this hotel, especially if you look around and get yourself a good deal like I did!

We've stayed at the Hilton a few times over the past year or so. We've always been very happy with the standard of the rooms, but in the past had been unhappy with the standard of food served in the restaurant.
I'm delighted to report that the food problem has been resolved! Six of us, including two children had a really good meal in the hotel restaurant. Apparently they've hired a new chef, and boy was it obvious!
I'd also like to compliment our waitress Kinga, who was so pleasant & went out of her way to look afer us.
As for the rest of the staff, they really do seem so keen to ensure that guests have an enjoyable stay. Well done to all involved, looking forward to our next stay.
PS The hotel is ideal for anyone attending a concert in the National Concert Hall - five minute's walk & you're there.

As mentioned many times before, the location for the Dublin Hilton is pretty good. A 20 minute walk, or a 1.5E ride (2 stops) on the tram will get you to one of the main squares. It faces the canal, and it's a quiet neighborhood - but there is a tram running inches from the wall of the hotel, and live (loud) music in the lounge on the weekends. This may or may not be a problem, depending on where your room is located. I was on the 4th (Club) floor, and although I could hear them clearly in the hall, neither bothered me in my room.

As a HHonors Gold, I found some bottled water, wine, and two chocolates in my room upon arrival. Note that the Club floor is not the same as an Executive floor - there is no lounge, but whole fruit is left on a plate by the elevators. Breakfast (plentiful but not great) in the restaurant was provided as a benefit.

If you haven't been to Dublin, get ready for sticker shock when you see the food prices. Especially for Americans with a lousy exchange rate... two appetizers, a side, and a cheese plate from room service cost nearly $60US. The Internet charge is 20E for 24 hours, which amounts to highway robbery since there were lots of tv ads for home broadband service at around 30E/month.

The staff were pleasant but seemed to be permanently short-handed at the restaurant, lounge, and front desk.

I had a good stay, but will consider staying at the Hilton Kilmainham on my next visit. The Kilmainham is slightly further from the city center, but 13-15E per day will buy you 24 hours on the hop-on-hop-off buses which stop right outside. Last I checked, the price differential between the two properties was more than twice that.

Stopped off here after getting the ferry across from Holyhead. Used a Hilton Honours free night which made it all the better. Excellent location right by the tram which goes to St Stephen's Green it is a great place to recover from the shock of the outrageous prices for food and drink in Dublin.
The only niggle would be breakfast and the hot buffet that these chain hotels do and particularly the lack of proper toast. Best avoid breakfast and go to a cafe somewhere. One day they might learn.
Great rooms, helpful staff, who needs breakfast anyway?

We flew into Dublin airport and caught the Air Bus run by Dublin transport a great value 6Euro single which takes you all the way to OConnel Street. Hotel is 15 minute walk from Grafton Street, and gaiety Theatre, we caught tram which took 5 mins and drops off right next to hotel, good value at 1.50Euro. Friendly staff at Hilton, booked a kingsize deluxe which was good we were at the front and was quite noisy as there was a fairly busy road. Breakfast was very busy and selection of food was ok, not as good as other breakfasts, the breakfast staff though were very friendly. Handy location away from hustle and bustle of centre.

The Hilton Hotel was luxury from the minute we checked in.
We were lucky to get a fantastic package which included two nights B&B for €45 per person per night and it was at the week end.

The rooms were really nice and clean, they even had welcoming gifts of water, 2 small bottles of wine and chocolates!!!

We decided to have dinner in their restaurant which was good value, well presented, lots of it and very tasty.We even chose to have a couple of drinks in the bar and ended up staying until the early hours. Their bar is very trendy and does not have the look of a "hotel bar".

Breakfast was a fantastic display of a wide range of cold to hot food and drinks. The variety was just great, the food was very fresh and there were lots of it. it just suited everyone in our group, no one was disappointed at all.

The staff were really helpful and friendly.

I would absolutly recommend this hotel to everyone for business and leisure, it has a great location and has the Luas just outside the door!!.

I will most undoubtly be back to enjoy the luxuries of this hotel.

The hotel is fine & has most of the amenities needed on a business trip. The staff are friendly & helpful. The dinner in the restaurant in the evening sounded better on the menu than in reality & judging by the fact we were the only ones in there eating indicates to me that guests would prefer to eat elsewhere. The only other negative thing is that it is right next to the tram line & so you get constant noise from trams coming & going, which tended to keep us awake.
