"Worse than I thought it would be. . ."
The good - hotel location is convenient to the airport. Hotel lobby seemed clean and inviting. Hotel desk staff is pleasant although completely in over their heads. This became apparent when the front desk clerk disappeared for five minutes while I was checking in at 11:30 on a Wednesday night. Simultaneously, another guest checking in was handed a key and asked "Is this one clean'" When assured it was, he said "third time's a charm." Meaning, he checked into two dirty/unmade-up rooms before being promised a clean room. I was also promised a clean room as it turns out the reason why the desk clerk ran off was to search for clean rooms. Honestly, the room is pretty awful. The full sized bed (only bed in room) is reminiscent of a triscuit and I am confident I would be more comfortable on the floor - if I weren't completely terrified of the carpet. There is black mold behind the headboard (room is very musty). The furniture situation is bizarre. The tv is mounted to a dirty and cracked wall wall opposite the bed, there are no lamps - only overhead lighting which requires getting up from the bed to turn out the lights, and no electrical outlets even close to the bed. This is bad, friends. Unacceptable. Do yourself a favor. And book elsewhere.
"Not a 4 star hotel"
Receptionist smiled and was congenial and informative about hotel services such as meal availability. Shampoo and conditioner excellent quality. Bus shuttle available every 15 minutes. Nice view. We liked the room decor and lighting. However the following ítems were lacking. 1. No bidet. 2. No securiity safe. 3 A spare pillow should be available in room. Not everyone likes a low pillow. 4. Breakfast not included in room price. 5. Only one tiny piece of soap. 눘
"Delightful Stay at the Radisson Blu"
Our room was very comfortable and spacious. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. My only complaint about the room is that I couldn't locate an outlet for drying my hair that was close to a mirror. Internet access a bit slow, but not unmanageable.
"Good Friday fiasco"
We booked into The Radisson, Dublin Airport on Good Friday as we had an early flight on Saturday morning. We are Irish and well aware of the present Laws. When booking, we asked if the bar would be open and were told it would. My husband had just come home from abroad and was looking forward to a couple of creamy pints of Guinness (He claims they are never the same abroad). On arrival, we went to the restaurant for dinner. There we were told by a lady restaurant manager that we were only allowed 1 drink each. When we asked why, we were told that it was, after all, Good Friday. We could have a bottle of wine between us or 1 pint of guinness and a glass of wine. Our friends arrived and they were as indignant as we were but we were our of options. A waiter took our drinks orders and then the lady manager sent him over again to tell us we had met our quota! We are mid 50 year olds, with an early flight and just wanted to relax and make our own decisions on what we drank! We would have all walked out but we had paid for our rooms and had no option. The lady manager was neither visibly nor verbally Irish but seemed to enjoy lecturing us on the Irish Catholic way. Eventually, a male manager appeared. We explained our situation to him and thanks to him we used our own discretion on what we ordered. BTW he was neither visibly nor verbally Irish either. The law in Ireland is changing anyway next year, we were residents of the hotel and in my opinion, respectable, respectful adults. Why 1 drink if they had an issue' To but honest, still thinking about it, I am absolutely horrified that we were treated this way.
"Much less value that expected"
When I pay almost 170 € in a four star hotel I tend to be expecting excellence. Instead all was about average, the best value being the very efficient airport shuttle. Frigobar in the room was empty, the choice of complimentary hot drinks in the room didn't include a herbal fit for late evening, the bathroom kit was cheap and the much publicized Grab and go breakfast in the early morning is of very limited and poorly organized quality, Some advice here: give a smart little paper bag to pick up the things, give a wider choice of cereal bars (and of better quality): for example some gluten free, organic, fair trade... give a feeling of attention and value, some fruit juice. Fruits were poor quality, very much cheap supermarket. Hotel should remember that they have got the money for a full breakfast even for the customers who have to leave early, before they can consume it! Final note: the sound insulation of the rooms is not excellent: we could hear the neighbors talk in the night.
