Got this hotel for a good price for a birthday celebration, there were 8 ladies in 4 twin rooms. Good location - but quite a walk to the shops (we all got blisters so take comfy shoes!). Rooms and facilites were excellent, but it was a little noisy due to a function on the Sunday. Check your bill carefully - the hotel made a mistake and tried to charge us an extra 109 euros!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Camden Court Hotel

One of the most unwelcoming hotels ever stayed in

from A TripAdvisor Member
We took a lot of care choosing the hotel for our one night in Dublin in October 2004, which was intended to round off a lovely tour of Wales and Ireland. The positive tripadvisor reviews led us to this one, but unfortunately our very mixed experiences of the establishment did not make this the expected highlight of the holiday.

The hotel itself was beautiful, quite well located, the room was lovely and the facilities were great. However, having wanted to swim (another reason for picking this place), we discovered that you had to have a swimming cap to wear in the pool, which on a brief one-night visit made this an obstacle we were not prepared to overcome (for the sake of other would-be swimmers, perhaps this requirement could be mentioned prominently in the hotel's details). The reception staff were cold and uninteretsed, not at all welcoming upon our arrival or thereafter. By contrast, the concierge and bar staff in the feature Piseogs bar were delightful and very helpful. The breakfast experience was atrocious. We did not like the way the food was arbitrarily dished out in front of you, rather than allowing guests to serve themselves. The breakfast staff did not understand the simplest of requests. Although English was not their first language you would expect the hotel management to have ensured that they were sufficiently trained to provide the level of service required by this type of hotel, for which we had paid well to stay in. The tea provided was disgusting, and the twice-repeated request to replace it with a stronger cup resulted in an even worse, and weaker, 'brew'. A decent cuppa in the morning is, in fact, surprisingly difficult to obtain in many a hotel, but this took the biscuit.

It is a shame that a hotel with such obvious potential is ruined in ways that it would not take much to put right, in order to make staying there a truly wonderful experience. The attitude of the front-of-house staff, in particular, left us feeling immediately sooooo disappointed.

excellent, good south city location

from topcat72
have stayed at the camden court a number of times while in dublin, pluses are itslocation, within easy walk of top of grafton street and around corner from new LUAS tram stop, rooms excellent, quiet despite location on busy street with many restaurants nearby ( surma indian restaurant is good) bar downstairs not the best, but try 'bleeding horse' pub nearby for more atmosphere. Overall, would reccomend highly.

Camden Court, Nice room but....

from Lincslady
Just had a very enjoyable stay at the Camden Court and agree with most reviewers, but thought I'd add a couple of points not mentioned. At the end of the road (2mins) there is now a tram stop which will take you to the end of Grafton St. Very useful.
Secondly, when returning to the airport. DON'T use the service bus (16A) which stops just across the road unless you've got loads of time and enjoy crowded service buses that stop at every bus stop in Dublin. Although cheap, our trip took 1hr 15 mins (the reception desk suggested this bus) and although extremely cheap at 1.65 euro, terrible. The Aircoach takes approx 30-40 and is very comfortable although the stop is further away, a taxi between the hotel and nearest stop will cost approx 6-7 euro and the Aircoach itself 12euro return.
Only other gripe-the breakfast. Dining room dark and boring, staff unattentive, food only O.K
Try the restaurant at the Leeson Court (Kobar I think) on Lower Leeson St,about a 10 minute walk away. Lovely food (lunch), great decor. excellent attentive staff.

Very Happy, Enjoyable, Contented Stay

from DMSLeicestershire
We had a very enjoyable stay here in August! It was a 30th Birthday surprise - mid-week stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The concierge in particular was very accommodating with taxis etc. The swimming pool was a lovely added bonus and very relaxing after a long 'touristy' day. We arrived at 10am and were given a room instantly which was great, although Im sure this wouldn't be the case at the weekend. The rooms were very clean, pleasant, sparkly bathrooms. Average fittings, not shabby.The surrounding area isn't too pretty but a minutes walk will lead you to the Luas - The New Tram System. An absolute doddle to use and takes you intp St. Stephen's Green. I can highly highly recommend the hotel's restaurant, we were very surprised as we decided to go there as we were running late. Fabulous food, great service. Thank you very much, my boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed his birthday!

Good value for money

from Ward34
Stayed here for one night in June. We found the reception staff to be extremely friendly and the room very comfortable. The breakfast was abit below average and the service in the restaurant could do with some improvement but overall it was good value for money in Dublin. The pub next door has good food if you are looking for somewhere casual to have dinner.

expensive

from A TripAdvisor Member
very expensive hotel for standards offered ,not a bad location but much better value can be found and we hardly met an irishperson!

Great Staff

from vacationtosandals
I would like to thank the 3 night shift people that worked on April 25, 2004. The night of 4/24 my husband and I received a call from home (New York) that my husbands mother pass away. I immediately made airline reservations. The morning of 4/25/04 at 5:00 am we came down to the lobby to check out and the men asked if they could get us breakfast. We didn't want to put them out. The dinning room wasn't open yet. To our surprise they served us coffee, toast, and scones while we waited for the taxi. They even played some special Irish music since we didn't have time in the country to enjoy it ( we flew in on 4/23/04) . This meant a lot to us in our time of sorrow that people do care. We wish to come back to Ireland and I definitely want to stay at the Camden Court Hotel.

The staff at the hotel was special.

Thanks.

Great location, great value

from A TripAdvisor Member
Thanks for the tips tripadvisor. Had a wonderful stay at the Camden Court. Great value weekend in a top city. The pool and sauna was a real bonus. Staff really helpful.

Thumbs up!

from A TripAdvisor Member
A great value for the money! Just returned from Dublin where we stayed at the Camden Court. Friends of mine from England joined me. They were impressed, as was a friend I have in Dublin--all thought it was a great value. Good location, very nice lobby, bar and restaurant. Rooms are modern and very clean. An excellent value and I would definitely book there again.

Nice and Friendly

from A TripAdvisor Member
Such a nice and friendly hotel. The rooms were clean and homely, but above all the friendliness of the staff really made our stay. The facilities such as the leisure centre were welcome additions. The Irish breakfast was wonderful. The walk into the city (10 mins) was just about right, besides there were excellent pubs and restaurants on the way to sidetrack you. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Top Local Tips for Dublin

Bram Stoker Dracula Museum One attraction we didn't like was the Bram Stoker Dracula Museum. It seemed more like a haunted house you would find at a local carnival than a museum. Don't waste your time there.

Open top tour bus When you arrive in Dublin airport buy a travel card for the bus into city centre and that also lets you use the tour bus valid for 3days way to go.cost 25euros.
