Historical Traveller Reviews of Park Inn Dublin Hotel
sfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are clean though not finished to a very high standard and please don't stay in them unless you know the person you are sharing with intimately... the bathroom is behind a glass door which does not close properly and there is no sound-proofing!
The hotel's main business seems to come from its conferencing facilities and I felt that as ordinary tourists we were slightly neglected. We paid for a three night package as part of a special offer. During those three nights we were supposed to receive complementary Irish Coffee's, which never materialised, and we also stayed in three different rooms due to noisy pipes and noise from a function (in the end reception gave us keys to go and sort ourselves out with a room).
Once the building work in the area is completed then I'm sure the hotel will improve its standards, there is the Jameson distillery just around the corner and a new tram line has just been put in about 200 yards from the main entrance which can take you right into the centre of Dublin. At present though I would say it is a standard hotel at best.
Initially we were impressed by the 'pics' put on lastminute and as we prefer the more 'trendy' looking places we thought, yeh, why not it looks alright. I suppose it does look alright but its a fair distance from any of the tourist spots so expect a good walk. The hotel itself is a little drab and could do with a lick of paint and to be honest...a blitz on the cleaning front!!! The Staff could also do with a lesson or two in customer service seeing thats why theyre there in the first place.
On our return from the pubs we decided to have one last drink in the hotel bar. To this day I cant understand why the DJ was playing his music so loud as there were only about 10 other people there and I reckon the bar area could seat over 100!!!
Infact it was so loud that after going up to bed we had to go down to reception and complain...and their solution? was to offer us another room, which we declined as we had unpacked and settled in. Why they couldnt ask the DJ to turn his music down is beyond me.
The breakfast, however was tasty and plentiful and was the highlight of our stay! How sad huh?
Dublin though is well worth a visit and a great place to take your girlfriend for some retail therapy...and some of that yummy irish guiness..... chief O'neills is not worth the money though. Stay elsewhere is my trip advice.
Great Locationfrom midnightspace
Some of the staff were not all that friendly which let the overall experience down a bit though and the suite has a tiled bathroom partition which you might not want to use if there were people you wern't close with sharing!
The hotel is close enogh to the main attractions to walk to and there are 3 local pub within staggering distance that have irish music most nights .

Great!from A TripAdvisor Member
Great location a few minutes from The Liffey, and about 10 mins from Temple Bar, so none of the noise of Temple Bar. At the moment the area is being developed but I'm sure in a years time it will be very trendy and a very nice area. The rooms are very stylish and contempory, but aren't perfect in their finish, ie the odd bit of sloppy paint work, stained capet etc, but no major problems. The breakfast is fantastic, unlimitted continantal and Irish/English cooked breakfast. Reception staff are very helpful. All in all, fantastic.
Not worth the cost for this noisy, stark locationfrom Acadia_9
What a shambles!from Jolenex
The room was big and the bed was really comfortable, but we had windows on 3 sides and had to keep the blinds shut as the lift for the tower went right past our room.
The blankets on the bed had some stains and crusty bits... so that didn't stay on the bed!
The bathroom was all very modern looking, but had obviously been well used and badly fixed when any problems occurred - tiles we only half on the wall.
The service was appalling - breakfast was mostly self service as the waitress/waiters were always doing something else. Rarely a clean table and always ran out of croissants. Even when we spoke to the manager, he didn't seem to have a clue what to do.
The staff were mostly european and not irish so not only did they have problems understanding us, but we noticed they couldn't really understand each other.
On our first night there... new year's eve, I orderd a Baileys (good irish drink) and they didn't have any. I thought that some initiative would have been taken and someone might have got a bottle from somewhere (local shop) as it was new year and we were in ireland, but no. They didn't have any for the rest of our stay (4 nights).
The bar staff were just about civil, never a smile, a please, a thank you ...not very helpful. The reception staff were fairly good.
All in all, I wouldn't stay there again. It wasn't centraly enough and wasn't worth what we paid.
Above average with a good locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
On a negative point there is a large scale development being built at the front of the Hotel which will cause some noise and disruption. Even allowing for this I would use it again.
