“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2009

we stayed at this hotel for one night whilst at an event in the city, on arrival i was saddened that we had whole day planned out as i would have loved to have simply hung around the hotel. Front desk staff - especially Steffi were extremely helpful providing maps, directions and information on everything you need. We were directed to our room which was simply stunning. We'd booked the Hampton Preferred, which included huge flat screen tv and fake plasma fire place, all controlled with one remote control by the bed. The bathroom was spotless and quite large with plenty of towels and toiletries.

We were out of the hotel for most of the day and returned around 11 at night and had a quick drink in the bar, we were extremely tired so went to bed but DVDs are available free of charge to watch in your room if you are bored.

If you are planning on breakfast i'd advise on pre-booking it for value for money, we prebooked for 10euro and were allowed to order what we wanted off the menu in which most of the food was well over 10e. We both had full irish fry which was yummy and made to order unlike most hotels which serve buffet breakfast.

check out was fast and efficient and Steffi again offered us directions and maps to our next destination.

This hotel is fantastic, although a little out of the way, its only 15 min walk to city centre and bus stops right outside. Free on site parking is also a huge bonus, I would highly recommend it and will definitely stay here again if in dublin

The Hampton is very worthy of your consideration for a stay in Dublin. It is a stylish, clean, well run establishment. We arrived very early on a Sunday morning (thanks Delta) and met Steffi at the front desk. We dropped off our bag and explored the neighborhood. When we returned to the hotel it was obvious that we were pretty tired and Steffi went above and beyond to see that we could check in as soon as it was possible. Our room was a good size and nicely appointed. i.e. large flat panel TV, electric fireplace, CLEAN, and large bathroom. There is a supermarket with a very good deli a block south and McCloskey's pub next to it. We adopted McCloskey's as our neighborhood pub for an evening nightcap. The people there were first rate (say hello to Barney if you stop). We stayed 4 nights before going to Cork and Galway for several days and 2 nights on our return to Dublin. On our return we were given the same room, which was a nice touch. The only issue we had was that our room was not cleaned on one of the evenings we returned around 7:00pm. It was immediately taken care of and we had a deli picnic in the sitting room with complimentary wine. It was no big deal at all.

The very slight drawback is that it is a 20 minute walk south of St. Stephen's in Donneybrook. This is of no concern in good weather and very little concern in bad weather (which we had every day) because the city bus stops immediately outside the hotel. From the airport take the Air Coach Leopardstown Rd. route to the Morehampton Rd. stop. Returning to the airport step outside the hotel's front door to the Sach's Hotel bus stop. It is easy and convenient. The Air Coach and city bus stops are next to each other.

I will absolutely consider the Hampton for our next trip to Dublin. The staff is frist rate, competent, friendly, and professional. Stay here!

Who knew that Halloween was such a big thing in Ireland. We'd picked this weekend because it worked with my work schedule and we had been meaning to spend a few days in Dublin for a while. It was the reviews on this site that made us decide to stay at the Hampton Hotel. I would agree with all the reviewers: the refurbishments are lovely and the rooms are really modern yet still very cosy. I have to say the remote control defeated me (but then they so often do). However even hubbie couldn't get the radio to work and that is saying something. The fireplace adds a nice touch and flatscreen tv is awesome.

As others have said the location is great, a little out of the centre but a 20 minute brisk walk takes you straight into St Stephen's Green. Just crossing the road takes you to a lovely park which is nice for the post Sunday lunch amble or your morning jog if you feel really energetic.

We found all the staff to be especially helpful and taxis can be summoned very quickly. The only thing they need to work on is the restaurant. It struck us that they were missing a good, confident chef. The bar/restaurant is layed out nicely and should be humming however it was clearly having trouble attracting a crowd. The bar pours generous drinks and does great cocktails so there is plenty of potential. Hopefully this is something they can fix quickly to make the whole experience delightful.

We'll definitely be going again - both for business and pleasure.

My wife and I took a two-day break to Dublin and stayed in this hotel. After reading the rave reviews on tripadvisor we were looking forward to staying here. Our expectations were exceeded! The room was very spacious, clean and we really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful - nothing seemed too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend this hotel - you will not be disappointed!

We visited Dublin for the first time with my girlfriend and we chose the Hampton Hotel due to the excellent reviews we read on TripAdvisor. We stayed at room 205 from 28/10 - 31/10. The room was perfect, very clean, with a luxurious bathroom and extremely comfortable bed. There was also a 46" Flat screen TV, fireplace and free wireless internet. What else can you ask for??? Breakfast was really good as well. The staff were extremely helpful and i do not remember this quality of service in any other of the hotels (i.e Hilton, Sofitel, Holiday Inn e.t.c) i have stayed before. Really Excellent Service !!!! I strongly believe that this is a 5 STAR hotel.

This has been my third visit to the Hampton & each time I have been given a warm welcome. Each time I stayed I was attending a concert so its a prime location for the City Centre/ O2 / RDS I cannot say enough about the team ~ The team at the Hampton are so friendly and obliging. The Décor is very stylish & modern & the rooms are superb.

I would have no problems personally reccomending this wonderful hotel . Its a Gem
