“Short visit to Dublin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

We were visiting Ireland for the first time and like to stay near train stations so we can move onto our next destination easily. The walk to the hotel from the train station is a bit far with luggage, but a quick cab ride. It is only a five minute walk to the LAUS which takes you right into central Dublin. Next to the hotel is Kilmainham Gaol...an old prison. I recommend the tour there. Hotel was nice. Room was spacious and we had a wonderful view. Clean overall and service was decent. All in all a good stay.

I have stayed in this hotel for business and in a personal capacity and both times it was great.
My most recent stay was with my boyfriend for the weekend and the quality of our room and the food we ate there was incredible.
The only downside is that it is a taxi journey into the town which gets quite pricey if you are there for the whole weekend but apart from that it was an excellent stay.

Booked 3 days for my wife's 30th birthday Was really pleased on arrival. Really nice. Was infuriated when visiting the hotel pool as "you must buy (€2) a swimming hat to enter the pool (not very good bearing in mind this s a 4* hotel). Also lockers involve buying an actual PADLOCK!

HOWEVER on night number 2 my wife complained of a beeping noise that kept her awake (I slept through it)

On evening three this same "beep" was annoying my wife. I called reception, the manager was sent up
WHAT A GUY! So polite. He spent 5 minutes in our room and cured the fault On leaving he asked 'is there anything else I can do for you? I jokingly said please could we have some complimentary champagne The manger (I could not believe it) agreed and told us he would send up two glasses of champagne (he did)

If we ever visit Dublin again I will Come Back to this hilton Some people complain this hotel is too far out However it's on the "HOp on HOp off bus tour meaning you can get anywhere in the city

Wonderful hotel. Located conveniently to the airport. Has free shuttle to airport. Hotel staff was wonderful ! Clean and large rooms. Family room is ideal for 3 people. Great breakfast in morning and open early. Airline crews stay here.
Priced very reasonable. Reasonable priced taxi ride into Dublin City Centre.
Not located close to the city centre but closer to airport about 10 minutes. Glad we stayed here rather than the Radisson Blu which is very close to airport.
If we were in town for more than 1 night we would have most likely stayed in downtown Dublin. This is a business person's hotel.

Room Tip: Largest room I could find close to airport to accomondate 3 adults. Room was lovely w nice view at n...

Stayed there for 2 nights this week and found it to be an excellent hotel from every perspective:
1. Staff were very friendly and couldnt do enough to oblige , especially the desk staff.
2. Room was good size and the bed so comfy.
3. Very clean.
4. Excellent spa facilities
5. Great bar
6.Excellent breakfast choice
7.Location not an issue a 5 min walk and €1.90 journey on the number 40 bus will get you into Dublin centre in 15 minutes

Would definitely recomend..............

Chose this hotel because of a very good price and I was happy we stayed there, I usually stay at another hotel close because of the proximity to Heuston station. This hotel is ok to walk to if you don't have to much luggage and/or you are in pretty good shape from the station. Otherwise, take a cab. We did walk to Guinness storehouse, about 20 min away. We arrived a little early the hotel had us relax in the dining room and gave us some free tea. The rooms were very nice, our view was not great but we did not come for that. Breakfast in the am was very good, good buffet choices etc. The best part was the pool, there were 3 smaller areas, one with warm water, one with hotter water with great water jets and a hottub. The jets were great just like a massage. None are large enough for actual swimming or jumping but relaxing. You must wear a bathing cap or purchase one for 2 euros. It is right across the street from the Kilmainham gaol and this is a must see while in Dublin. The staff at the hotel was fantastic and helpful about directions.

I'm not sure how a bad review of this hotel could be written, except that it's a little off the beaten path. My husband and I had a heck of a time trying to find it, but I would say that was more of a result of us having hard time finding street signs in Dublin, and we were walking from Houston bus/rail station. Once we got there, it was so worth it. The staff are really, really nice, and the room... Ahh... So nice! I booked this hotel because I wanted us to get a good night of sleep before heading back on a long plane ride, and this is just what we got. Nice sized room, big, cozy bed, and a nice warm breakfast in the morning to send us on our way. The bar downstairs is also a nice place to relax. We would definitely return to this place.

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to share your positive feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Our location is great as you get a quite night’s sleep, while the madness in the city centre is just a short distance away.
We hope to welcome you back in the near future.
