“Boutique hotel as it is meant to be!”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

For business I am frequently visiting Dublin. I am always using the Dylan hotel. Friendly staff, good food, nice bar and inner-garden and a very quiet place just outside Dublin's busier places. One of the few hotels where I have to remember I am not home when I wake up. Great place for business, but also for a Dublin weekend would I go there with my wife.

Clean and comfortable rooms in a great location. Staff are professional and friendly. The only negative part for us was the checking out - it seemed to take ages! We will be back though! Dublin is great.

Dissapointing hotel . Wouldn't take a lot to make this a good place but really struggling at the moment. Poor service from barstaff and a hint of arrogance which is distasteful.
I definitely would not stay here again and would warn anyone to avoid this place . It looks good from the outside but something is rotten within.

Plenty of much better hotels are available and keen for business in the the area.

The cost is another point of contention as parking fees are little short of larceny and the bar seems to be a double the normal price and then add some more scheme.

Finally the front if house staff seem to think that being rude is a good way to build the brand! Its not !!!!! If you want some place cool and chic this is not it.

I couldnt express strongly enough that this hotel is failing on many levels and I am surprised at some of the positive reviews on this website as at best thia place has two star quality and service.

It's infrequent that I write a response, but I felt compelled to. This is a lovely hotel, not your standard homogenous affair. beds are comfy, staff are friendly and attentive.

BUT - they are forgetting the basics.
My room smelt on arrival, but they did move me without hassle.
The room phone is so advanced its hard to call reception, you need to dial 400, not 0
Making the TV work is a headache
The network connection is slow, if you can call reception to find out what the wi-fi code is.
Milk in the room fridge is off, curdles in the coffee
Breakfast is not the usual hearty irish affair

Beautiful atmosphere throughout the hotel. Bar staff were excellent. Our starters were perfect, and presented beautifully. However the rib eye steak had a horrible smell off it. I cannot express how badly it smelt. It turned my stomach. Our waiter was also a handful. Grumpy and very hurried. He should follow in his colleagues footsteps as the rest of the staff were excellent.

Everything about the hotel is excellent. I have stayed in many superb hotels internationally but don't think I have ever stayed in a better one.
The location is superb, valet parking great and the staff especially Madison couldn't be better or more helpful.
We just had breakfast but this was first class.
The rooms are great with sky sports and music and great attention to detail.

Room Tip: all rooms seem very good!

The Dylan has everything. We stayed three nights and the staff were very friendly and the accommodation could best be described as 'old world, five star charm'. Loved it.
Whilst at the Dylan, we needed to have laundry done, the in house service offered was quite expensive. An alternative to the in house service, is the 'White Wash Laundry' located at 60 Grand Canal Street Upper, a 10 minute walk from the Dylan. The cost ? Well worth the walk.
