Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Isaacs
Ideal Isaacs !from borimund
The nucleus of Dublin; the city (Ballsbridge, Connolly Street, Temple Bar) is a mere 10-15 minute stroll away pasing the Irish Times building and theatre although you could catch a tram if thats your thing. The hotel at the time was undergoing continuing refurbishment but this caused no concern or problems at all.
All in all, found Dublin itself a bit pricey but couldn't find fault with the Hotel Isaac's and would have no hesititation in staying there again due to its value for money and location.
A Charming Establishmentfrom Pop101
spend more and still get better valuefrom 4wellie
I'm in the low camp (1 1/2 if there was one). Aside from the convenience to transportation (but uncomfortable neighbourhood) and that the hotel is equi-distant from most of the sights, the hotel leaves a lot to be desired.
Somewhere I read "modern hotel" - yer like 1970's modern! Internally it was noisy; floors creaked, you could hear voices above and to each side. As soon as you take the first step up from the lobby, or get into the elevator, you wonder what you're in for. It's hard to know if the place is part way to renovation, or part way to demolition! Threadbare carpets just don't cut it. Regardless, it needs a thorough going over. Front desk was indifferent and the hotel vacuum must be plugged-up. Correct about shower - it was good.
I expressed all of this on a comment card, but haven't had any comments back.
Estimate 15 - 20% more money would have got me 80% more value and I'll scrutinise the review ratings more than ever.
Very disappointingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Pretty okfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Good value for money, especially if you book direct with them via the internet, and in a great location for buses from the airport. Only one thing I would particularly want to improve is the quality of the breakfast - not that it was bad, but it really could have been a lot better.
- but not more!from A TripAdvisor Member
The worst experience was the restaurant! I was a marketing victim as the restaurant is advertised strongly all around that place. The pizza was a disgrace to all Italians!!! It tasted like coming straight out from a microwave, poorly filled and was small and overpriced. The same counts for the cesar salad!
Do yourself a favour: don't visit this ripp off restaurant and don't get blinded by its interior which admittingly is nice!
Georgian elegancefrom Momelt
Situated behind the Customs House and within easy walking distance of many of Dublins tourrist attractions and staggering distance from the Temple Bar night life, this recently and sympathetically refurbished guest house can only be described as spectacular. The room and reception area was all decorated to a high standard and in period with the elegant Georgian building. The staff were friendly and helpful and with a choice of good quality continental or freshly cooked Irish breakfast it is a great place to stay.
The hotel was a great place to return to after a busy day sightseeing and we highly recommend a stay there.

High Standard Place to Stayfrom obriens191
The hotel was really tastefully refurbished and had a real upmarket feel.
We had two rooms, the standard was a little small, but well appointented. The superior room was 30 euros more, but had a lot more space and high ceilings etc.
The breakfast was great - full irish, or cornflakes etc if you preferred.
The staff were professional, but not overley friendly (especially the manageress!)
I would still recommend it to anyone to stay there.
No Probs - Great Hotelfrom Babypenguin
The beds were comfy and the lighting in the room was good. We also had a full length window which could be viewed as a plus or a minus depending on how much you like your privacy, lol. The bathroom was fabulous - and actually had a rather roomy bath as well as a great power shower. The plug in the hand basin didnt work but as we were in a brand new room you kinda have to forgive the builders for getting at least one thing wrong.
The rooms were always spotless on our return in the evening complete with a fresh set of fluffy white towels.
On response to other reviews I have read - yes the ceilings are a tad thin and you can hear the cleaners in the room above you in the mornings but, we never heard any noise from other customers which was a surprise as the hotel was very busy that week.
Anyone who is planning on booking a room here should know that if you are at the front of the builing then your room, like ours, will be facing the city's bus station and one of the major dart lines. However I can honestly say i didnt find it noisy in the slightest and Im a very light sleeper. Having the bus sation opposite us was actually a blessing as it saved on expensive taxi fares to the airport at the Air Link bus stops right outside the door and only costs 5euro! Bargin!
All in all a really pleasant stay - and at a great price!
Top Local Tips for Dublin
Eliza Blues beside Millenium Bridge Great restaurant with good well presented food.The happy hour menu between 4-8pm is excellent value for money.
The 747 The aptly named 747 Bus from outside the terminal building goes right to the Hotel - just get off at the Busarus (the Bus Station) costs a measley 5Euro return.
Everybody frendly I love the people and gardens
