"Beautiful Hotel and great location"
I would say the best bang for your buck in Dublin, not the cheapest but a great hotel in a great location, spacious rooms and the bus stops right outside your door. I would highly recommend.Have fun in Dublin!!
"Wow what an upgrade"
We have visited twice since my last review of the hotel and it only gets better the family room the last time we stayed in October was clean, spacious and above all as peaceful as you could wish for. But the room we were upgraded to on all Ireland final football final weekend was out of this world , having requested a twin room for me and my son it blew me away to see a room consisting of two king sized beds , two T.V's and two sofas , pity there was just the two of us. As usual the "fare" was first class the breakfast alone makes the trip over from Wales worthwhile, and the latest idea of only admitting residents after a final gives an added comfort to drowning your sorrows after another one point defeat . Rest assured if you looking for a central location with a touch of class to enhance your Dublin visit look no further.
"Christmas night out with my wife"
The Gresham Hotel is a top class landmark hotel in the centre of Dublin, a thriving international city with culture, history, theatre,top class restaurants and entertainment. It is on the city's main street so all amenities are easily within reach. 2016 is a great year to visit Dublin with many historical events taking place to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1916 rising. The Gresham Hotel is within yards of where that event started 100 years ago.
We have stayed at The Gresham before and found it very welcoming and in a great location. Sadly this visit we were not impressed. On arrival we were really pleased to have received a room upgrade. However, Sunday morning, we found there was no hot water to shower or bathe. It was practically impossible to get in touch with reception from the telephone in our room. My husband had to walk down to reception where he encountered a long queue. The chambermaids on our floor were able to tell us that the hotel had no hot water. When we eventually spoke to reception they confirmed this and hoped we'd have hot water in half hour, this was at 10.00am. Considering we had to check out by 11am and have breakfast, we asked if we could check out later in order to have a shower. We were told yes. We had breakfast. The buffet in terms of cold was very good, however the cooked food was lukewarm and not very appetising. Not what we'd expect from a four star hotel. Having returned to our room, no hot water! We had to leave without being able to wash properly. I was expecting an apology or some kind or acknowledgement for the inconvenience while checking out. None was forthcoming. I had to mention the lack of hot water and got a paltry reduction in drinks from the previous evening. This is not the kind of service I would expect from this standard hotel. We shall be looking at other hotels for any future visits.
"Faded glory, but well located"
Very well located on O'Connell Street, this hotel is a great stepping off point for travellers to Dublin. The welcome and staff service was excellent. But the rooms are very tired, the bathrooms in worse condition. 1990's tiles and stained sinks are not good. The bed, however, is very comfortable and the room size good. It is a large hotel. The common parts are fine, but rooms do need a makeover. Breakfast choice good. Buffet based, but it could have been warmer. Was genuinely disappointed overall. Investment required by management.
