“Great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2010

We stayed three nights in June and found the staff could not have been more helpful. Gundrun at the front desk is a walking encyclopedia on Dublin and gave us practical and sensible advice.
Buses to the city center were right outside the hotel and cost 1.60 Euro each way. The red tour buses were fantastic and we would highly recommend them. A walk to the closest tour, hop on hop off, bus was about 15 minutes by foot.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our only criticism would be that the restaurant, although convenient, was lacking in service and the food was sub par. We were quite famished when we arrived. Burnt toast, dried turkey and surprisingly slow service was a disappointment. We found breakfast a slight improvement but chose to eat elsewhere for the remainder of our stay.
When we return next year we will definately stay at the Hampton Hotel again.

Just back from an amazing couple of days in Dublin. This hotel couldn't have been any better. Great sized rooms and some of the friendliest staff we could have met. Thoroughly recommended.

This small boutique hotel is great, it's trendy, quirky and friendly. I was greeted on arrival by the receptionist and the hotel manager, we quickly struck up a conversation and I was offered a complementary drink in the bar, a very nice touch after a long day.
I was given a complementary upgrade from a standard room to a suite, another nice touch. The first impression of my room was great, high ceilings, large plasma tv, dvd and music system, lovely big bathroom with excellent fittings. To give a little balance to my review I was slightly dissappointed that the finish and attention to detail of the room didn't match the quality of the fittings or my first impression. Some of the carpets were poorly fitted, the black furniture looked cheap, some of the woodwork looked poorly renovated and the paint finish was lacked quality.
I ate in the bar, the service was very friendly and uncomplicated and the food was excellent.
On balance I would recommend this hotel, the service I received throughout was genuine and first class, the room was filled with quality fittings its just a shame that some of the finishes were lacking.

My husband and I spent two nights at the Hampton in Dublin before and after a trip to Kilkenny. The staff was beyond friendly, giving us great suggestions for places to eat and things to do, as well as how to get around. The hotel is incredibly clean and decorated in a very modern art deco kitschy way - super funky, a bit reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland.
Our first room was huge and gorgeous. 60 inch plasma tv, fireplace, king bed, table and chairs, GIANT bathroom with soaking tub.
On our return, we were upgraded to a suite that just blew us away. Would go back in a heartbeat. Incredible value for $99 Euro per night!

We booked this hotel through late rooms as we were going to watch Rhianna in the o2 arena in dublin.

It was our first time to dublin and it was the best weekend ever! The hotel staff were amazing, very helpful and couldnt do enough for us.

Great location, only a 20 minute walk to the city or a short hop on the regular bus service into town. We will def book there again when we book our next gig.
