Reviewed August 23, 2013

I dined last night in the V'n'V restaurant at the hotel. Strange name, but great food and service. My friend had a lovely Feta cheese salad and I had rabbit and pork meatloaf, which was also excellent. My main course was trout and my friend had hake.
I asked to switch from chunky chips to mash and there was no extra charge. The food was excellent, but she was disappointed that it did not arrive in the banana leaf, which was mentioned on the menu.

Our lovely waitress Eva, who was only her second day working in the restaurant, assured us that it had been cooked in the banana leaf.

The only disappointment was the cappuccino which my friend said was not the same quality as they serve in the bar. I had decaf Americano, which was also not great. I can make better decaf at home with my Nespresso.

3 of us stayed here in two rooms for a total of four nights at the beginning and end of our vacation. The tripadvisor reviews were right this is an excellent choice. The hotel clean, friendly and comfortable. Located a block from St. Patrick's and right behind Dublin castle it's easy walking distance to Temple bar, Grafton street, Trinity College and Many of Dublin sites. But while it's close it's also in a quiet location on the edge of a mostly residential area. Breakfast was wonderful with a large selection of choices that never seemed to run out. All four rooms were spacious and bathrooms very clean with a large soaking tub and a great shower. Hop on hop off bus stop at St Patrick's is at most 5 minutes away and taxis are available all the time right out front. There are nice bars with friendly staff always willing to fix a drink or get you some food. There is also plenty of parking available below the hotel but is a little hard to find at first since it's around the right side of the hotel and you'll think it's closed since there is a security gate but just push the button and you are let in... it seemed very secure and safe. My only minor complaint is that the hallways were always a bit too warm, I'm sure this is an energy saving effort but a few degrees cooler would be nice.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a weekend break in Dublin. I was really pleased with everything about the hotel. The room was quiet and clean and appeared recently refurbished with a superb bathroom. Although we did not eat at the hotel, the bar area was relaxing and comfortable. All the staff were friendly. The location is very good - a short walk to everything. All considered, a very good experience and I would not hesitate to return.

My wife and I stayed here for five nights in November 2012. We found the property very comfortable with very nice, well decorated and good size rooms; in fact better than we expected. The staff was quite couteous and accommodating. The breakfast room was large the and food was very good. We even caught a glimpse of Judi Dench (played 'M' in 'Skyfall") one morning. It is hard to beat the location. A nice walk to St. Stephen's Green, Trinity College, Temple Bar, Christ Church Cathedral and St.Patrick's Cathedral, Liffey River and even Grafton St. We have to highly recommend this hotel based on our great experience there and in Dublin in general.

We spent 2 nights in Dublin and had booked based on Trip Advisor reviews. Have to say we weren't disappointed. The greeting by Sergio was extremely professional. The room was everything we expected...large with a great bathroom. I hate to admit it but we were ready for a lazy evening on night 2 and ate room service (I know! We shouldn't have in Dublin but were truly shagged out) anyway it was good value and excellent quality. The location of the hotel is great and a highlight is the access to Dublin Cycles which has a station just outside. Be warned...you will,have to buy access at a station a few blocks away as only a limited number of db cycle stations have credit card access to log in. Overall the Radisson was great with easy access to Temple Bar and the sights.

Room Tip: Ask for something a little higher. The street noise opposite can be loud at weekends

Husband, daughter and I stayed here for two nights and we all loved it. Upon arrival we were upgraded for free to a full suite which are beautiful rooms. They have a full separate bedroom, two bathrooms, mini bar area and sitting room that had an amazing view of Dublin. Front desk staff were very professional and courteous. The free breakfast was extensive and had very early starting hours which worked out great for us. Locations very close to temple bar, grafting street, trinity and all downtown sights but off the path enough to be super quiet at night. Hotel is very nicely appointed and for its fairly modest price in comparison to others downtown, an very good value.

I was in Dublin for a week on business, but wanted a location that would allow a little fun time too... this is the perfect hotel. A short walk from Temple Bar, near the shops and some nice restaurants but in a quiet location.

The staff displayed the usual friendly and helpful service, that I have grown to expect from this brand. The room was a very high standard and always spotless. And the breakfast was exceptional.

Would highly recommend for either business and/or pleasure.
