“No great shakes...”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

I don't know what the fuss is about. This place looks ok but doesn't deliver. Front of house staff excellent. Bar staff less so. Barman although accommodating, was scruffy. Place has the ambiance of an Irish country hotel in the 1970s. There's a sharpness you expect in a luxury boutique hotel and this place feels stale and slow. Doors in lobby jammed open to let air circulate? Colour schemes 'dead'. Advertising Facebook on your business card is a bit tacky too.
As I said staff try their best.

We stayed just one night in this superb hotel which proved to be one of the best we have ever experienced anywhere in terms of its presentation, the sheer professionalism of its customer care, decor and a thrilling sense of style. Wow.

My wife found this hotel and we stayed to celebrate my birthday. What a treat. On arrival we were given an upgrade . The room was beautiful as was the hotel itself. The bed was exceptionally comfortable with great pillows! It also had a great sound system. The hotel is in a quiet area with easy access to the city centre. It really is a luxury boutique hotel. What also makes this hotel so special were the staff. They were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Could not have stayed anywhere nicer for my birthday. We will go back to this hotel again for a longer stay.

Fancy little touches to make a great night's stay become an amazing night to remember. Just all the little details. I'd rather not spoil it, better to experience it as a surprise. You won't regret a night. Here, it's great for a quick romantic getaway.

I have stayed in many hotels in Dublin over the last few years but this is the only one I would actually want to go back to purely for the experience of staying in it. I have several dietary needs and the hotel catered for them all, an experience I have not had before in any of the hotels. The decor and standard of finish in our room was excellent, the iPod not only had great music on it but it also had walking tours of Dublin! The breakfast was excellent (we had dinner elsewhere) and there was a great range of room dining options available but we did not need to avail of them. Staff were also a level above other places, right from our arrival to departure we were shown the utmost helpfulness and courtesy. The hotel is conveniently situated for theatres, shops and sightseeing. I am looking forward to a return trip here and have no hesitation in recommending Dylan Hotel to anyone visiting Dublin.

We booked this hotel because many others nearer to the city center were fully booked. It turned out to be a lucky break. The hotel was in a great location on a side street within a neighborhood, making the atmosphere quiet and relaxing, even with the windows open. Shops, pubs, and public transportation were available right around the corner. Access to city center and the DART were a comfortable 10 to 15 minute walk. The front desk staff were very kind and helpful, and the hotel had a number of thoughtful touches.

The hotel is not easily accessible from the airport. The air shuttle drops you off within a few a blocks, but that's difficult to manage with luggage. You can take the city bus from there, but it's still a hassle. Be prepared to pay 30 euro for taxi service to or from the airport.

Stayed here with husband. Lovely welcome with cocktails, impressive room although no bath but great shower, real milk for making tea and ipod in room with good music. We had a theatre package but couldn't book dinner til 6pm and show was at 7.30 so although dinner was fabulous we had to rush it to make show. I think restaurant should open at 5.30 to accommodate theatre package. Breakfast was lovely although service was quite slow. Would highly recommend this beautiful boutique hotel and only 10min walk from Stephen's Green.
