Reviewed November 7, 2012

I stated with my partner for a weekend in this boutique hotel in Dublin. We really enjoyed the hotel, the design, the decor and the room and as we booked it on line, the price of the room was very ggod value for money
The problem is that we booked the restaurant in the hotel for the first night and while the food was OK, the price of food anddrink was not in line with the quality of the food and drink, so this was a minor diappoitment that has prevented the review to reach the 5 mark

Room Tip: if you can afford it, go for the junior suites

The Dylan is about a 10 minute walk from St Stephen's Green and Grafton Street, the main hub of the city. The slight distance (compared to other hotels near Grafton Street) has some benefits and drawbacks. The chief benefit is that it will not be noisy and you are unlikely to run into many (other) drunks staggering out of the city's more touristy pubs. The chief drawback is that if you have been "enjoying" the city's pubs, you may need some stamina and sense of orientation to walk back. Luckily, since deregulation, there are plenty of taxis.

The Dylan is ultra modern and very discreet, so don't expect any cliches about Ireland. If you are in the bar, you should order a tray of baby Guinness. Share them with your fellow drinkers, you will become instantly popular.

We stayed here on a Saturday and had an amazing dinner and gorgeous (pricey!) cocktails. The bar was very busy with parties and the smoking area was a bit too dark. We went for drinks in Searsons around the corner as there was a big gathering in the bar. Later we sipped a drink by the fire and toddled off to our gorgeous room. The bed wasn't the comfiest I've slept in but it did the job!
Pricey place but worth it for a treat.

Our room was terrific. The service was excellent in every way. There were a lot of fun aspects to the hotel. It was quirky and offbeat, but very professional at the same time. It was a little hike to the tourist attractions, but we enjoyed the walk. Also, the hotel was in a part of town where non-tourists could be found, which we also enjoyed. The front desk folks were very knowledgeable and helpful, so I would encourage folks to use them as a resource.

i visited the hotel on 1st september where we were meeting a large group of friends. on arrival at the bar we were met by a waiter who asked had we placed a drinks order, when i told him we had not he disappeared never to return. 15 minutes later i went to the bar where there was three staff members talking and no other customers other than myself waiting to be served . after 5 minutes i was approached by a barman who informed me that although it was THE BAR we would have to get a waiter to serve us. after several more attempts from my seat i got the attention of a waiter who took my order and waited a further 15 minutes for it to arrive. my bill was of €33.50 of 3 gin and tonics and 2 pints of Heineken. By the time it arrived we had to leave and in turn leave our drinks.
the service was dreadful and the drinks were overpriced

The Dylan was a nice hotel. Our room was spacious and clean. Bathroom was tiny. We only stayed two nights so we had minimal interaction with the desk staff, but check-in and check-out was efficient and the staff was pleasant. We had breakfast on the last morning and I have to agree with other reviews in that the service was poor and my omlet was burnt.

Just returned from a 9 day trip to Ireland that began in Dublin with three nights at the Dylan. This cute little boutique hotel is a little outside city center - closer to the Aviva stadum - in the old financial district. It is a 20 minute walk at a leisure pace to the main attractions. That said, it is located in a quiet residential/commerical area which is clean, safe and offers plenty of local places to eat/drink.

Our room was spacious, fully outfitted with everything we needed including a US plug, and came with nightly turndown service including chocolate and bottled waters. Our view from the room was over a garden and church and at night it was so quiet we slept with the windows open. Bed was comfortable, bathroom large. Clean, quiet, relaxing.

Service was exceptional here for us. Our luggage was delayed coming in from London and didn't arrive till 8 hours after our check in. Martin at the front desk stayed in constant contact with our airline and delivered our bags to our room after midnight when they arrived. He was also very helpful in making recommendations and having cabs readily accessible for us within 5 minutes of making the ask.

We did eat in the bar area on a Saturday night. It was crowded after a nearby rugby game but our service was efficient and quick. Food was good and reasonably priced. We did not eat breakfast here as there were cheaper options one street over.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the lobby side of the hotel - either facing the side of the hotel or the front. If...
