"Great central location "
Stayed here for 1 night for a concert, short walk to the Abbey street Luas stop. Parked in the hotel carpark. Dealt with the same reception lady who was helpful and professional. Extra staff around reception area help to keep an eye on your bags which is nice. Our room was 266 on the 2nd floor with no real view but didn't mind. Comfortable bed and pillows and spacious room. One negative i felt was the lighting in the bathroom if your trying to do makeup it wasn't great. Same problem at the mirror in the bedroom. We got a good deal on the room and would stay here again. Did not eat at the hotel so can't comment.
We stayed here for 4 days recently and have to say very happy with our choice. The hotel is literally 2 stops away on the air coach which was very affordable straight from the airport. Checked in easily, room was lovely even if the bed was slightly on the small side. Our room was roadside but the noise really isn't an issue. We ordered room service one night and have to say very impressed with the service. Arrived super quick, tasted amazing & they came back a few hours later to remove the trays! Location wise it couldn't be more perfect. Tram is literally a few minutes walk away, you literally aren't more than 10 minute walk away from the bridge where all the pubs & bars are. Hop on, hop off buses stop right outside the hotel if that's your thing. My hubby & I decided Google maps was a much more fun way to discover Dublin so we walked everywhere (which I would highly recommend) Overall great place to stay for the price!
The Gresham is ideally placed for getting around all of Dublin. The bus from the airport stops right outside the hotel and picks up going back, on the other side of the road. (If you fly Ryan Air, buy the bus ticket on board as it saves you 2 euros). The hotel is pleasant, well appointed and staff are extremely helpful. Rooms are adequate, clean and have a good sized bathroom in the main. But you are not here to stay in that room, but more to see the sights and perhaps try a pint of Guinness. With pubs all around and it being less than 1km to Temple Bar where there are pubs galore, it isn't a difficult walk. There is the Dart transport system to spirit you up and down the coast nearby too, and Gresham Street and the whole shopping experience is a 10 minute walk away across the River Liffey. Breakfast is cooked well, plentiful and served till 10.30 on a week day. There is a hotel bar, which we surprisingly didn't use, but it looked nice and accommodating. there are also areas where you can sit and read a paper or a book. It is a busy hotel with plenty of comings and goings, but as a location it is ideal, being far enough away from the main run of pubs to give you a quiet nights sleep. beds comfortable too. Free internet and plenty of tour leaflets available.
Stayed in the Gresham Hotel in late March. Room fine, bathroom a bit dated but adequate. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was good and the service prompt and friendly. All was well until we returned to our room, when we heard loud talking and laughing coming from the next room. This continued nonstop and at midnight I phoned reception to complain, as it sounded as if there was a party happening in the next bedroom. A man arrived and knocked on our door thinking we needed ice, not that we had complained about noise ! My husband explained the problem and we heard the man knocking on the next bedroom door, presumably to ask them to quieten down. I don't think it had much effect, but I eventually fell asleep , to be woken by the same racket at 4am. When I dropped off again at 5.30 or 6 am it was still continuing. When I checked out the following morning, I spoke to a duty manager, who said that two rooms had complained, and that they had dealt with it at the time, but I would need to ring reception again at 4am or they would not be able to do anything about the all night party. So much for security ! So it is your own tough luck if you stay here and have noisy neighbours and a rubbish night's sleep.
"Good hotel, great location"
I stayed here for two nights while attending a conference and it is vastly improved since the last time I stayed a couple of years ago. The rooms were recently updated and the bathroom was lovely. Breakfast was buffet and there was a good selection. The location is perfect easy walking distance to most of Dublin city centre. We had dinner in the bar and it was lovely.
