“Great hotel close to Grafton Shopping and fun nightlife!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Loved the design and the location of this hotel. Quick and refreshing walk to the popular shopping areas as well as fun pubs. The staff was very helpful - though I did feel like the concierge, Martin, was getting a cut from Hertz on car rentals as the prices he was quoting on the smallest car possible was more than what I paid at Eurocar for a BMW 5 series. So... be a big leery of that.

Rooms are very small. Wear and tear has taken its toll. Carpets ripped in our room. Standard double bed with uncomfortable pillows.
There is only one 5 star in ballsbridge. The four seasons. This place doesn't even come close to its standard. Def would not visit again.

We have stayed in several Dublin city centre hotels but this was in a class of its own. From the helpfulness of the desk staff when we called to say our flight was delayed to the attention of the restaurant staff when we eventually had our very late dinner, they couldn't have been nicer or more professional. The rooms are a great size, spacious and stylish. We liked the fact that it was a little out of the city centre. Still walking distance to town but benefitted from being quieter and leafier in a pleasant neighbourhood with decent local pubs. Have sung the Dylan's praises to all our Dublin-bound friends and would definitely stay here again.

The Dylan was a lovely place to stay. The design of the hotel is really different and quirky. However, as other reviewers have said, there is some wear on the furnishings in the bedrooms and also in the bathrooms but the accommodation is still to a very high standard. It is a little way away from the centre of Dublin but in a lovely quiet area. The staff were fantastic and very helpful. The bar is also nice and seems to be popular with guests and locals.

I liked this hotel. It's quirky and has a great vibe. The staff were outstanding, and the rooms had everything needed. Breakfast was functional with a combination of buffet and al a carte. The local area is nice - more of a neighbourhood feel, but some nice bars and restaurants. Distance to Central Dublin is about a 20 minute walk or 5 minute cab ride - so central enough. Given the right circumstances, I would stay here again.

We stayed in the Dylan a little while ago for a special occasion. We were staying in a suite which was lovely but the tv in the bathroom did not work, which was very dissapointing, especially when you are paying five star prices...you do expect everything to be perfect. The food and servie was good and the staff were extremely pleasant.

This is a late review, as we stayed at the Dylan last December. Nonetheless, it was a great choice for us. It's in a quiet neighborhood, just a block away from a main street with great restaurants & pubs within 2 blocks. Close enough to the river that we walked. We stayed in the Experience Suite - very large rooms, comfortable bed, nice view to a garden and fountain next door. We both had colds, didn't feel great, but our suite was an enjoyable place to be anyway. Staff was very professional and friendly at the same time - a great combination. The restaurant was able to seat us on a weekend night, even though we didn't have reservations. Delicious food, friendly wait staff. Would definitely stay there again.
