Would not stay here againfrom pamela913
Nice centrally located hotelfrom FilipBelgium
Excellent CityHotelfrom DonegalTraveller
A little rundown but finefrom Zadok99
The hotel is a little rundown. Past its prime is probably a fair description. The staff were friendly but I also had strange experiences with leaving a credit card to guarantee charges. No card no phone line but leaving rthe card details was torture.
What it loses in amenity it gains in price and location. I would most likely stay here again.
Excellent - read the reviewfrom aprilschild
Housekeeping was provided every day, even New Year's day, including daily fresh towels. The hotel was clean in all areas and we were even provided with a continental breakfast on the morning we were leaving (6.15am start) of toast, cereal, coffee /tea, yoghurt. Nothing was too much trouble for these staff.
Much of it was dark wood and brass in the hotel, this was to reflect the traditional style of its original building. Food in the hotel was excellent, lunch (full roast dinner) was around 11 euro. Dinner in the restaurant for three courses was 25 euro or a la carte. The dining room was well used by travellers and regulars alike and was always quite full.
Can also recommend a nice Italian restaurant on O'Connell street, Café Carlos, lunch for 11 euro consisting of starter, main course pasta or pizza and a glass of wine, again excellent service and quality both at lunch and evening.
If on business, do not stay here!from A TripAdvisor Member
Straight away, I handed over my Amex for a swipe (standard procedure), but was given a funny look, and I was then asked to write my card details down (inc security code) on the guest card!
I refused, as this is highly irregular, and not very secure.
I was then asked to pay up front, which I did in full, but I was unable to get an invoice as the system was being backed up!
I then noticed that I had been given a smoking room. They had a non smoking available, but only for my fist night, so I had to put up with the somking room!
I then went to my room, using the lift which seemed like a death trap!
When I went to my room, the first thing I noticed was the absence of any coffee facilities.
I also noticed there was only a tiny little desk to do my work on, and no data point. Instead I had to stretch the phone over to the middle of the bed, and move the desk right by the bed too, to get dial up access.
I have 800 dial up access, so it is a free number. Anyhow I decided to see if if I would get a one off connection charge (normal hotel stuff) so I called reception, and got told it would be 70c per minute!!
I asked her to double check this, as that is crazy, but she could not confirm!
So I then said I would connect for two minutes, and call her again to see if I had been charged.
She then told me that she needs my credit card details to open the phone line.
I said no, as I did previousley, but I argued I will be making a free call. eventually she opened the line.
Anyhow, I connected, and was annoyed as I only got 28.8Kb/s (very slow).
I then called her 5 minutes later to see about the charge but she had gone home, and I spoke to someone else who told me it was all locked! so he could not tell me.
Other points to note is that the toilet flush handle is broken, and the bath panel is all cracked.
On the plus side, there is a flat LCD TV on the wall, however the pricture is rubbish, and two of their sky channels are not working.
Overall, if I hadnt paid up front, I would check out and find another hotel.
Our 3 day stay at Wynn's was pure pleasure. The staff was helpful and friendly and the facilties were excellent.
I read a few reviews that mentioned noise issues; our stay was Sunday through Wednesday so we didn't have to deal with Friday or Saturday night receptions in the hotel or pariters on the street. Their was some street repair taking place one night until about midnight, but I always travel with earplugs to insure a good night's sleep.
We will visit Wynn's again and I will recommend them to anyone thinking of visiting Dublin.
Sorry, but no thanksfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The room I stayed was far too small and no view (you could touch the wall of next building if you open the only window). The reception staff was unfortunately not so helpful.
Too noisy to sleep!!!from mrshappy
Whilst my friend and I were moved to the back of the hotel which was quiet, the other two were in the same position above the function room and could still hear the music despite being two floors above. The hotel must have known which guests attending the function were staying in the hotel so why don't they put those guests in the noisy rooms??
The hotel was very central, just off O'Connell Street, and very handy for the shopping areas and Temple Bar, which was a 5 minute walk away. It would have been nice to have tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms as a E2.50 charge for room service seemed a bit steep (this made the cost about E5.00 for a cup of tea, however it wasn't a big deal really.
Overall, the hotel was very nice and the staff were great, however I think they need to consider guests a bit more when they have functions on. Even though we're no stick in the muds, we do like to sleep sometimes!
Go on go on go on go on go on go on go on go on go onfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Wynn's hotel is in a superb spot in the centre of Dublin. All amenities are close by.
The hotel is well presented and the staff are hospitable and helpful. The room i stayed in had some character and was comfortable.
The shower wasn't very powerful but it worked. My room was situated at the front of the hotel so the tram line that runs out the front could be heard. However, this didn't appear to run throughout the night and was bearable. The hotel is undergoing repairs so i was woken early by loud drilling but i had to get up to go to breakfast anyway so it was no great shake.
No hotel is perfect and despite the thumbs down list i'd recommend Wynn's.
Top Local Tips for Dublin
Dublin buses and Dining out. Use the Airlink bus from/to airport and also the City tour. All of these can be booked at the Dublin Bus desk situated in the airport terminal. It's a much cheaper way to travel. There are many good restaurants in Dublin but try The Eliza Blues which is on Wellington Quay (near the Haflpenny Bridge). Excellent food and service (not cheap but then what city dining is). Also can recomend the restaurant and bar at Wynn's Hotel - very friendly and great food.
Travel from airport into Dublin Use the Aircoach, goes directly to the city centre and very cheap. Every 15 minutes.
VIKING SPLASH! You absolutely have to go on the Viking Splash bus tour around dublin! It shows you the best sights, with really funny live commentary, and the bus you do it on magically turns into a boat and you SPLASH into the river Liffey and do a tour of that! MAGIC!
