    Good

    The bed was really uncomfortably quiet hard.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    5 mins from Aviva and free parking.

    Couldn't get a drink from the bar on Saturday night - should be a separate bar for residents or reception should be able to get drinks. The guy on reception told us they were too busy. The rest of the staff were great.

    Fabulous

    Friendly staff, room was clean and bright

    Unfortunately would not recommend paying the extra for the breakfast, we had to stand at door and wait 5 mins to be seated and had to ask for bowls for cereal, very poor choice of fresh fruit and breads and after 15mins had to ask staff member to take out order and waited another 15mins for it to arrive cold, not worth the money

    Staff were really friendly we got a nice surprise when we arrived we were upgraded to a suite this room was lovely with a balcony and great view over the city. Food in the gasworks was good and not too expensive. Will stay here again great for attending Aviva or RDS.Good breakfast and lots of variety.

    The price of the Hotel, the price of drink and food when other pubs and hotels in close proximity to the Aviva stadium seemed intent on ripping people off, it was appreciated

    As described on their web site, the accommodations were very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. As for location, it is convenient to the parts of Dublin we wanted to visit. It is walking distance to city center. Breakfast was very generous.

    The hotel was convenient to the city centre and also for the Aviva stadium where we went to see Neil Diamond - brilliant! Staff friendly and even though we couldn't get near the bar after the concert staff got us drinks to the lounge area. The guinness was excellent!

    Exceptional

    Stayed at this hotel for three nights, the staff were excellent and very helpful , the room I had was spotless and the bed was very comfortable . We were able to walk into the city centre from the hotel , and it's a 15 min walk to the rds stadium . The hotel also has a shuttle bus going to the airport every hour from 6am . I would stay at this hotel next time I visit Dublin .

    Location beside Aviva Stadium was ideal (Neil Diamond concert) Staff were very friendly and obliging. Executive room was well worth the extra €25

    Having to make my own toast at breakfast. Some unprincipled cad stole one of my slices!

    Booked this hotel for Neil Diamond Concert, great location for Aviva Stadium. has parking plus only 15 mins stroll in the city centre. The Gasworks Bar is a great place to relax after hard days shopping in Dublin.
