Historical Traveller Reviews of Hilton Dublin Hotel

Had a good stay...

from madly99
My sister and I spent a night here in October 2005. It was fine - the room was a nice size and very clean; the beds were comfy. Our room wasn't ready at our arrival at 9:30am, but we were told it would be ready within an hour and it was. The only bad things I can say, really are - 1) the elevators were terribly slow and crowded in the morning; 2) The hairdryer was hidden in the top dresser drawer - never saw that before; 3) The breakfast is exorbitant at 19 euro - we ate at the airport for less.

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
In have traveled to Dublin 5 times in 2005 and have stayed at the Hilton Dublin 4 of these. Overall it is a good location to get to Grafton street as it is right on the LUAS(Tram Line). Taxis seem to be always available outside the hotel when you are needing it. Here is some additional breakdown:

Rooms

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.

Service

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.

Food

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.

After arriving on an overnight flight from Chicago early in the morning (like a few hundred others), we took a taxi to the Hilton. There are shuttles but you really have to look for them. No one inside the airport wants to tell you about them so do your homework before going. From the airport it was a expensive and long ride to the Dublin Hilton. But the taxi driver had lots of recommendations on where to eat (only in pubs, not restaurants) and what to see. While the Hotel was not ready for us at 10 AM, had no recommendations on when it would be ready, or what to do while we waited. We were both so thirsty we were ready to go drink out of the canal out front. After a one hour wait, we finally made our way to the room for a quick nap. The room was small by US standards but had the usually amenities with a clean, large bathroom, comfortable bed with a down comforter, and cable tv. Close at hand was an ice machine and a vending machine with everything from beer to shampoo. I enjoyed the tea, coffee and cookies (similar to Loradoons) left each day. Just up the street from the hotel is a great pub (two floors) with wonderful food. Not nearly expensive as the hotel or near by restaurants and the entire pub staff was friendly, helpful, and exceptionally positive. They had lots of suggestions and loved to share stories about football -- ours and theirs. The tram across the street from the entrance to the hotel is very convenient. Just a few stops and you are right downtown, next to Stephan's Green (pickup point for the day bus trips) and all the shopping. We enjoyed Dublin and in November the weather was much better than we expected. Since I'm not a big fan of B&Bs, I prefer staying in hotel and always try to stay at one of the larger chains in case there are big problems. I would recommend this hotel. While some of their staff could use some help in the "customer friendly" area, that is very typical of Europe. There are few places that measure up to our hospitality in the US (especially the South) and our hotel/resort industry. Most chains work very hard at customer satisfaction because it means repeat business but I just don't think its the same in Europe.

fantastic

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the dublin hilton 28-31 July. The room was very spacious with all mod cons, the bathroom was very Large. The room was spotless, as was all the hotel. The food fantastic and the service second to none. the hotel is slightly out of the centre but there is a tram stop straight outside the hotel. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone and i shall certainly be staying there again.

Far below Hilton standards

from 6723Dennis
We have stayed at the Hilton, Dublin for one week. It was a disappointing experience. The problems started upon arrival (2:00 p.m.). We had been standing before the reception desk for 10 minutes until the receptionist, an aggressive and rude young lady, decided that we finally deserved her attention, although there were no other guests waiting. She informed us that our room was not ready; thus, we had to wait at the lobby. 45 minutes later, we asked her how long it would take until we finally get our room. She simply answered that it was OK but she had forgotten to inform us.
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 ok

from 50crescent
Just returned from a weekend in Dublin and stayed at the Hilton. Location was convinient because the LUAS stop is right there but it is also loud! Our room (which was ok but nothing special) faced the train which we had to listen each night and each morning.
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.

Downgrade

from swife
My family was looking forward to spending our last night in Ireland in Dublin but when we got to our B&B the hostess came out and said that the pipes had burst and she had gotten us a reservation in the Hilton down the street. The good news was that there is available, free parking and the breakfast the next morning was very nice. Other than that I would have never known that we were in a Hilton as the rooms were average and the staff indifferent. The female bartender was rude to my husband and son-in-law on two different occasions and thus we do not recommend this hotel.

Fine but noisy rooms

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have just finished a three night stay at the Hilton. The hotel is fine and close to all the sights.

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
Stayed here for 2 nights on the evenings of 22nd/23rd December 2004.

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 Dublin

from Mom0004
We had our wedding at Hilton Dublin in November 2004. We found the staff to be very helpful and accommodating in the preparations and on the day completely non intrusive. They made themselves known to the best man and liaised with him on the day which was a lovely idea because it meant that we were free to enjoy the day. They looked after everything from the leftover cake to the bridal bouquets fluidly.

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!!
