I stayed in this hotel it was very clean and tidy but the only thing was the noise of the lift right beside my room 200 apart from that it was one of the best hotels in Dublin very central only 5 mins from shops, Temple Bar etc. Breakfast was Super and everything was just right. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, but just remember about the lift if your room is right beside it.

This is a lovely hotel but bear in mind that it is located on O'Connell St, prob the main street in Dublin. There is a constant stream of traffic, noise and people on the one hand so it may not be for you, however on the other hand it is really central for shopping an nightlife.

Historical Traveller Reviews of The Gresham Dublin Hotel

Very disappointing!

from FamilyGee
We stayed at the Gresham for 2 nights in August 2003 and were very disappointed by the hotel. The foyer and all public areas were very nice, but our room was extremely small, the carpet, duvet, etc. looked grubby, the bathroom fittings were very old and worn and the when we opened the window we got all the cooking and ciragette smoke smells coming in as we must have been above the extractor fan outlet. Worst of all, our room was situated near a small lift and we were kept awake by the sound of the doors opening and closing and then awoken again early in the moring by the noise of the (extremely noisy) cleaners starting work. We noted our comments on the 'guest feedback' forms, but have never received a resonse. I'm sure there are much better hotels in Dublin for the same price.

Nice entrance

from A TripAdvisor Member
Walk in the entrance and everything impresses, not so impressive was our room. Bathroom was very worn, cracked tiles, no storage and the brownest bath water ever seen. Breakfast was get 'em in and out as quick as you can. If this is 4 star heaven knows what lower ratings are like. Only redeeming feature was that the bed was comfortable.

s Not Worth It.

from EverythingTaken
My mother reserved the room, and when she finally arrived after the flight, the wonderful staff took great care of her for a few hours until the room was ready.

She was told the room would be 150 euro a night for the weekend, but upon my arrival (and possibly the rugby match!) the rate rose to over 300 euro. The room was OK, but was rather old, dingy circa 1970's. We went right around the corner and got a room that was somewhat nicer for the cheaper price.

Perfect location!

from Canarius
Arrived at the Gresham for 2 nights. After checking in it took a couple of hours to get a room but it was worth it. I was meant to be in a single room but got a twin just for me. The room was big and the bathroom was good too. I didnt really have a good view - more like a brick wall courtyard thingy but that was fine....others in my party had a road room and could hear nothing but traffic - peace and quiet for me! There was actually a kettle but no minibar surprisingly. The food was delicious but very expensive, as were the drinks. But the main benefit was its proximity to the city centre. I would certainly recommend the Gresham - however if you want upper class chic and style - the Westbury south of the Liffey is certainly the one to go for!

Have fun if you go - we had rooms 351, 353, and 253! :D

Great location, okay only hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed there twice in the last year. The location is great and easy to get to by car. Good car-park (which is important in Dublin) but you had to pay extra for it. However very handy for shopping trip because the car was parked there all day for the rate and could be used as base. The hotel was okay. Very nice lobby etc. First room was good what you would expect at the price, the second time the room was very old.
Some of this was nice, in that the bath was old and lovely. Other was not so nice, such as drafty window, poor quality TV. Will go back for the old world feel and location, but will ask for a good room when booking. Staff fine and generally friendly in both cases.

Great hotel at a Great Price

from A TripAdvisor Member
I found this trip on *************.com, and it was a package deal. I saw the reviews on the hotel after I booked it and was really nervous. When I arrived the lobby was very nice and we were placed in a very large room that was very clean, had both a bathtub and a shower, A/C, tables, chairs, desk- all of the things that I would expect to find in a 4* hotel. The staff was friendly and overall the hotel experience was pleasurable. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone.

Still Quite Dingy

from A TripAdvisor Member
I forgot to consult TripAdvisor before booking this Hotel and almost cancelled after reading the poor reviews. I booked a midweek special of 108 euros a night for the two of us, including breakfast, which wasn't too bad as breakfast would have cost us 40 euros if we had to pay for it! The room was on the fifth floor and we had a nice room overlooking O'Connell Street. Even this high up there was still a lot of Traffic noise and also some Road Maintenance work was going on at four in the morning. The room itself was small and cracks were badly painted over.
The TV was a portable with no battery cover for the remote, the skirting board was broken in places, the radiator was broken, there was no safe. the radiator didn't work. However, there was a tea-tray (but no biscuits), and the bathroom was nice and pink, but had no extractor fan. In summary, we won't be staying there again.

The best, by far

from kieran618
Myself and a friend just had a lovely 4 nights at the Gresham and it was perfect! Location, service and price could not be outdone. Seems to be one of the few Dublin hotels where you can actually count on a "quiet" room!

Not worthy of 4 stars

from A TripAdvisor Member
Although this review is late in coming, I have only visited this site recently. Myself and a friend stayed at the Gresham in Dublin roughly a year ago. We found the hotel vastly sub standard. The room we were allocated was a twin and easily the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in. From left to right it was about a foot longer than the single beds. there was one bedside cabinet between the beds. My friend had to practically climb over my bed to get to hers. The bathroom was victorian in design and had clearly been untouched from victorian times. The bath being the best bit. You could have easily had a swim in the tub. Apart from that it was a disaster. The toilet took ages to flush and when you did you could hear the water filling up for around 15 mins. The tiles were gradually coming off the walls. The tiles on the floor were broken in several places and painful to walk on in bare feet. Our outlook was the extractor fan from the kitchens complete with smells when you opened the window. There was not even a chair to sit on at the dressing table. No tea and coffee facilities either which is ridiculous in a 4 **** hotel. Unfortunately the trip was a present to myself and therefore was reluctant to complain at the time. I have since spoken to staff and been assured that when I return I will find the hotel in much better condition. I have received a fairly good offer from the gresham and plan to return with my mother in 2 weeks time.
This time we are staying in a disabled room and hope to be able to report back as to the facilities for same. Having said that the serivce of the staff was superb and room service was punctual. Also the lobby is very impressive and both resturants served excellent food.

Top Local Tips for Dublin

Gresham The Location is perfect everything is close to, shops, restaurants, night clubs, museums, and art galleries u have it all

bus tour dont leave dublin without doing a open top bus tour . the craic of the guides is great and you get to see everything worth seeing in the city as well , and it wasnt expensive either . you can hop on and off as much as you like and your ticket is valid for 24 hours , which came in handy for me. dont miss the guiness tour , and if your interested in a bit of irish history go to the kilmanon gaol as well .

Use public transport. Probably best use public transport. Streets can be difficult to access by private car because of one way systems and the fact that many streets have restricted right and left turns from them. O'Connell Street only seems to have access for buses and taxis! Signs are not great.
