Historical Traveller Reviews of Hilton Dublin Hotel
Had a good stay...from madly99
As for location, it's less than 10-minute's walk to St. Stephen's Green, which wasn't bad at all. We did not take the LUAS but felt safe walking back from Temple Bar around 11pm on a Saturday night. The cab from the airport was about 37 euro - don't believe the 20 euro line they try to give you - but the 7 euro Aircoach bus stops only a block or so away.
We got the room at a specially discounted rate, but even their normal Internet rate seemed a decent value given the seemingly high cost of hotel rooms in Dublin. I'd recommend it and would certainly stay here again.
Good hotel - Know what to expect and ask for.from IndySully
Since the rooms do not have A/C you will need to keep the windows open. However, I have never felt too HOT in the rooms and fans are always available. The issue is getting the RIGHT room location. the LUAS runs next to the hotel and the street on the other side of the canal can be busy.
Since you will want to keep the windows open you will want a room over the courtyard. This will limit the street noise and tram noise.
The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean and the water is hot! There is an upgrade difference between the H Honors level rooms.
Wired broadband is now available in the rooms, they were just installing it on my last trip 9/2005 and it was free, but the cost will be around $20USD for 24 hours.
This hotel stays busy so if you are coming over from the states and arriving in the morning you may want to book the previous nights room so you can check in.
Any request I have placed through housekeeping or the front desk has been handled quickly and efficiently.
The hotel has a very good breakfast and the dinner, bar and room service menus are very good. These is this Hilton burger which has several cheeses and roasted peppers, just excellent.
The is also several places within walking distance and a very popular pub on the corner call The Barge which also serves good food.
Enjoy your travels!
Convenient, clean but not love at first sight.from greenandgold
fantasticfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Far below Hilton standardsfrom 6723Dennis
The room was small, average with regard to amenities and terribly noisy. The breakfast was average and pricey.
We love Dublin, it is a beatiful city but we will never stay at Hilton again.
Just okfrom 50crescent
Breakfast was decent- lots of choices but again, nothing special, although the waitress was very friendly!
We loved Dublin and would love to go again but would probally look for a different hotel.
Fine but noisy roomsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The "views" from our room were awful though - we overlooked an open area that looks private but obviously isnt - its a major meeting place for youths to hang out and drink (where are the brown paper bags?), smoke and make a lot of noise. It was very irritating. Things were more peaceful in Temple Bar. It's a pity because the staff were friendly and the rooms comfortable, but until they sort out the problem, I would not recommend this hotel.
Very disappointing.from A TripAdvisor Member
A few problems with our room when we arrived. We ended up being changed rooms three times due to problems. Very disappointing, but do have to say that in this regard the staff were very helpful and apologetic. They also bought us a round of drinks in the hotel bar.
We ate in the hotel lobby bar on one occasion. The menu looked good, but the food was terrible. You could tell that it was reheated via microwave. It was not very palatable at all.
Then came the killer punch - on the night before our departure, we received a note under the door at about 9pm "reminding" us that there was an early checkout the next morning because the hotel was closing over Christmas. This was the first that we had heard of the early checkout!
So, there we were on Christmas Eve, ushered out of the door of the hotel early with a five hour wait for our train to Belfast.
The receptionist was quite rude at one stage - she actually rolled her eyes at me when I asked a question.
I get the feeling that the whole place was in wind-down mode while we were there. You know, getting ready for Christmas. It was easy to see that some of the staff did not want to be there at all.
I am usually easy to please when it comes to hotels - so long as the place is clean and welcoming, then I am happy. However, this was a really disappointing experience. It is clear from the other reviews here that the hotel is obviously capable of a lot more.
Based on my own experience, I could not recommend the Hilton Dublin to anyone.
Our Wedding at Hilton Dublinfrom Mom0004
Our guests are still speaking of the meal which was beautifully presented and very tasty and the accommodation was perfect.
We would definitely recommend Hilton Dublin for your wedding reception.
Top Local Tips for Dublin
Irish music Try the Arlington for night life & Irish music located by the side of the Liffy near O'Connell street also do the tourist bus trip & find out about Irish history& goal.
Flexi day passes The cheapest and most convenient way to get around is by public transport, especially the Luas (tram). When coming in from Dublin airport, get a bus/luas flexi day pass for 6 euro 50 cents (inside the airport)and this will get you on the express bus to O'Connell street where you can then get buses to various parts of the city and then connect to the Luas system.
Sat Nav Dublin signposts are not the best - but Sat Nav enables you to visit any of the outlying attractions - it was invaluable to us!!
