The staff were fantastic and the location perfect for some city shopping and exlporing the city The quality of room service food to cost was not the best
Efficiency and friendliness of the staff; well-appointed, comfortable, clean room.
Comort, facilities, closeness to the centre of *everything* in Dublin Gaining access at 5:30 am was slow
Pleasant environment, very nice location, friendly staff and spacious clean and luxurious room. The bed was too soft and streetnoise from nightlife
Location was excellent
Staff were very attentive in all areas reception, restaurant, etc
Breakfast was wonderful Staff (especially Tommy on front desk) were very helpful Location Handicap room, which was not suited for others with low and very small sink. Shower type assured water to go over the floor.
The location couldn't be more central. It's luxury accommodation with top class food and service and all the extras you could imagine Not enough power points/sockets in the room for a modern tech age. The AC unit had mold on it
The central position of the hotel and also the overall excellent quality made for a very good short break.
the location and the rooms and the speed of check in nothing
concierge recommendations great breakfast Very small room with minimal closet space and walking space and a step down to get to the bathroom Had larger room for less money on my 5 previous stays here
Hotel is very difficult when parking
Location Very very very noisy.
the room was small, but spotless and modern. good location and the price was very cheap for bein in the centre of Temple Bar the lift was tiny and my friend felt a little claustrophobic.Bein in the middle of temple bar meant that it was a noisy area, and we could hear the music that was playin the down stairs bar in our room!! But saying that we werent in the room for too long and it wouldnt put me off stayin there again
The hotel is located on Dame Street which is directly in front of Trinity College main entrance and on the edge of Temple Bar District. Because we were staying for a week, we opted not to have housekeeping come in every day. The housekeeping staff left bundles of towels, shampoo and toilet paper outside our door to restock the room. The bathroom needed maintenance. There was mold growing on the wall above the door and the grout was discolored with mildew. The toilet leaked and made the room smell of sewer. It was unusually warm the first day we were there. They don't have air-conditioning; which is understandable but there were no fans available and the windows only open a few inches. The area outside our window was filled with several mechanical units which were rather loud.
the location was excellent right in the middle of dublin The hotel bar closed no drinks even though you stayed there
Good location Location is a bit noisy if you are after a good nights sleep
Excellent location and atmosphere good with the vat House next door Need tea/coffe making facilities in room
Liked the bar and central location. Some of our group stayed on the 1st floor and found their room very noisy! Specially with the music from the club playing so loud!
Its so central Room a bit small
the bar nothing
i was very clean and near why I needed to be,unfortunatly my wife could not make the trip to add her comment no
central location no tea making facilities in room and rooms small
Brilliant location - couldn't have asked for better! Staff very friendly and room was ready when we got there at 9am after our early flight! Have already recommended to friends! Sheets were marked and all the rails in the bathroom were coming off the wall but fine otherwise!
The location was excellent, security was very good and the café downstairs had very fresh, tasty food. There was half-price parking at the adjoining Carpark, although Jury's don't own it. The lighting in the room is soo dull and I actually couldn't see to get things out of my bag it was so dark, eventhough my bag was under one of the 'lights'!! Ridiculous. Also, the house staff were extremely pushy and rude on the morning of our departure as at 11:50am, they were knocking at the door to remind us that we were to leave at 12noon. Then again at 11:55am, another knock came to 'remind' us, we were obviously packing the last of our things and were not impressed at all with this nonsense and rudeness. Were they running around alll the occupied rooms knocking and checking in the final minutes of their stay just to 'remind' them of something they knew anyway? Most annoying and a little infuriating.
It was convient for a gig in the Olympia The staff were not one bit friendly or efficent.
Front desk staff always seemed busy giving tourist info to guests ahead of me. Weird how you must pass the desk to get to your room. Felt like you are passing a panel of judges, though theyvare friendly. I think they should have an irish accented greeter because the staff here sounded like any nice hotel in san francisco where I am from.
perfect location in the city , clean and very helpful and friendly staff
booked a double room for one night.very basic. not worth the money paid. mildew in bathroom.dirty soap holders. poor lighting in room. hall light coming through door space between door and doorjam.wall could do with painting. also would be nice if hotel validated full price of car parking.never stayed at hotel where had to pay to park there!
Atmosphere very relaxed, staff very nice and helpful
The central location and the security arrangements. The man inside and the swipe card entry to the inner part of the hotel itself The hotel looks a little tired and needs painting in parts
its location the toilet door had no stopper which was very annoying as the door would not stay open by itself. Room 413
The location was very good for access to the city The rooms were tired and could do wirh a refurbishment
breakfast was lovely
very average hotel, good that on w/end break no time to spend in hotel, but location is very good before changed room, window didn't shut, noisey with traffic on front and curtain rail fell down, rooms looking dated, 50 euros would be reasonable value
The hotel room had been well renovated and was very comfortable and accessible. I would have like cooling options like air conditioning or a fan and a few hair products.
Room was fab... Amazing!! Oscar Wild Suite! Complimentary wine, biscults, chocolate & the regular tea/coffee making facilities! Very central. No staff there at any time (No foyer) - this did suit us but I could see how others might find it irritating if they needed assistance etc!
the room was clean and pleasant. The hotel was hard to get to, gated doors etc. This hotel was also above a sex shop and managed by its workers. There was no one around to seek help. This should not be classified as a 5 star hotel. This is just a clean apartment with sex dvds available.
The James Joyce Suite was beautiful, so well appointed and comfortable. Very pleasant and professional staff. All-day breakfast was very nice. So central for anything in Dublin City. Highly recommended . Very high standards overall and good value for your money. No, it does give what the profile says.
The W.B.Yeats Suite was beautiful and very well decorated, it was luxury home from home. The Wifi was fast and free. Very good value and superb location in the Centre of Dublin City. Sound proof windows work well also.All day breakfast was excellent . Highly recommended
Being in Temple Bar, noise on street till 4... Not really a hotel, just 4 suites.. And Shower not working.. Not good enough at that money!
Excellent location.. brilliant interiors.. Friendly staff.. Lovely facilities..
Excellent location, lovely suite. Really comfortable bed. Perfect
Location was perfect-close to everything, Well appointed room with all amenities well thought out. Staff was very friendly. Sound proof windows. Very spacious.and clean. The breakfast was excellent. The bathroom door was glass and only part was frosted which was a bit strange.
big and clean rooms, good location. Very limited hot water in wash basin. The rooms are located near the night club so it's noisy during the night.
It was very central for Dublin. We were given a free upgrade to Business class - the room was superb. The restaurant was very good and to a good standard. Staff were friendly and courteous. The hotel has a business feel to it which may put off families with younger children. It was very good but as i am a discerning diner i did send back the venison which was tough and i did send back the wine and exchanged it for a more expensive. The Syrah was not good quality so i asked for a St. Emilion which was much better. The staff were excellent though in catering for my needs. The aircon and heating did not work in our room but this was promptly attended to by the maintenance dept and repaired.
The room Poor service. Bad dining experience
I enjoyed my stay at the Radisson Blu. The staff was courteous and helpful. The hotel itself is beautiful with a nice pub on-site with great food! I highly recommend it!
The room was very comfortable with an amazing bath and separate shower. The room had a flat screen TV with a good range of channels. We had dinner in the restaurant on the Saturday evening which was very pleasant. The breakfast was not included in the price which was fine, and we paid for separately, however - there was no price choice to either have a continental or buffet. I had the works but my mum only had a crossoint and a cup of tea which still cost 25euros.
The facilities in the room were excellent and the staff were very professional and unintrusive. E10.00 per day charge for car park; although this was waivered due to us being misinformed about early breakfast options.
Near city center but in a very quiet location. staff is efficient and polite. Breakfest is superb although an expensive one.
The hotel could not have been better. Clean, stylish, peaceful, great breakfast selection, very comfortable indeed. I loved the location too. Close to a wide variety of restaurants, use of a gym nearby and within walking distance of all the sights. I would definitely choose it again.
Fantastic modern hotel, stayed at other Radisson sas hotels and always good. Know what you are going to get. Service in bar area on Sunday afternoon wasn't great. Sat waiting for 20 minutes for a drink (with no nuts)!! Wasn't even busy.
A clean modern hotel, ideally positioned to explore Dublin. 25 minute taxi ride from the airport (approx 30 euro). Comfortable, well equipped room. Extensive buffet breakfast.
Ideal location and the facilities in the room were very good.
Centrally located, pleasant staff and an extremely good breakfast to statrt the day did it for me. No
Very good restaurant, pleasant bar.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel and the room were clean and very well maintained.
Location and room was great Not enough house phones..... Gym should be open later Need more TV channels
Location, decor Very small standard room, but to be expected in larger city
Friendly staff, comfortable room, good restaurant
I loved the television that was in the wall at the end of the bath. The room was spotless and very comfortable, and the staff were friendly.
Bartender Rooms way too small; poor quality of linens and blankets
Reception is so kind.
Excellent staff so friendly and with great attention to details. Twin room very spacious and clean with every convenience. Exceptional breakfast great choice and plentiful. Nothing
Staff all very friendly and helpful, comfortable bed and nicely appointed room, great location A minor quibble - there is no celebratory sparkling wine on the wine list under 100 Euro unless you like Prosecco which we find too sweet. Surely an Antipodean methode champenois or drier style cava could be added to the wine list?
We were staying 2 nights in Dublin and it was perfect. Good location, modern and I liked the big room. I didn't like the room's decoration in purples but it is my opinion. And I didn't like also the light in the room, it was poor.
Staff went above and beyond to be helpful. N/a
Great Location. Extremely Friendly and helpful staff. Clean.
The rooms and facilities are great. The service is highly professional and courteous. Right next to a small cafe if you want breakfast but don't want to dole out the 10-15 euro for the hotel's. Stay was overall very good. You are still in downtown Dublin, though, so keep in mind that while closed windows help greatly, there are still lots of people partying just outside in the adjacent bar/club.
The location and the rooms were very good. The staff were very friendly. The workout facilities were limited.
Everything was just perfect. The staff were all friendly and nothing was too much trouble. A refreshing place to stay We had to leave!
The location is absolutely fantastic. The room was HOT! The hotel does not have A/C. We stayed once before in November and did not notice there wasn't A/C then. In fact we were excited to stay again at this hotel because our first experience was so good. Our most recent trip was in June and the room was very hot even though it wasn't hot outside. We opened the windows, but it was very loud outside and the cigarette smoke and food smells from the bar below were unbearable. The hotel does warn that it's loud because of it's location if you open the windows. The hotel should invest in the mobile A/C units that cost about $800 each. It would be well worth it for summer months.
The quality of the room design, materials, decorations, are all first-rate and comfortable. The service from check-in to delivering a requested U.S. to British Standard wall transformer was splendid. We had a late arrival into the city, dinner with friends, and just less than 3 hours stay in the hotel before our taxi arrived for a pre-dawn flight home. Would have enjoyed staying for a while.
No nonsense good service. Very good restaurant for both dinner and breakfast.
Beautiful room and the food in the restaurant was excellent , staff attentive. The location is perfect to see Dublin. No dressing gowns in room and no tea/coffee in room although there is a 24 hr room service.
The location on the Quay and just backing onto Temple Bar (so it isn't too noisy either), the nicely done refurbishing of the original arts and crafts design/style including the wood panelling, the Octagon Bar and the Tea Room were all highlights. Very good bed linens, and comfortable bed and pillows. The Clarence has a bit of 'cool factor' about it too which never hurts! We were a bit disappointed in the room decor, which was rather uninteresting, and even Ikea-ish which for us is definitely not a plus. Blonde wood furniture in an otherwise darker wood arts and crafts movement sensibility seemed odd. Rooms were very bland and smallish which isn't surprising in an older hotel of course.
The bed was comfortable and the fridge was a nice bonus. Check-in is kind of late in my opinion. Travelers with early arrival flights have to wait a long time before they can have access to their room. Also, the location while nice, is a burden i.e. noisy at night.
The positioning of the hotel was quite good I was quite dissapointed by the Clarence. I am glad I only paid a reduced rate for the room, it was very noisy all night (due to a constant hum from the nearby boiler) The window had to be open as the room was stifling! A fan was provided but obviously the noise from the fan was not conducive to a good nights sleep!
When I arrived, I was shown to a very small room, clearly the worst in the hotel, with barely room to walk around the bed and a view of the air con system outside. However, when I immediately complained, I was given I more suitable room within ten minutes. The service was exemplary.The staff were very, very, good, and the hotel was clean. The breakfast was nice, as was my antipasto platter I had in the bar before the gig. I think that the lack of coffee machine in the room is a big drawback. I've stayed in many hotels of this price range, and I think that a Nespresso machine or something like that is important, considering the price of the rooms. I like to have coffee before I see anybody, and that includes the room service waiter. The quality of the room service coffee was not acceptable, either. Also, the selection of toiletries was inadequate and not up to the standard of other similar hotels we've stayed in. Inchydoney, Cliff house hotel in ardmore, The Westbury, all similar prices, all have more facilities in the room, decent toiletries, and a coffee machine. I'm afraid I will not be recommending the CLarence, I prefer the Westbury ~in Dublin.
The hotel is in a great location where everything happens. For young couples that like to stay out late this is really great. The service is great. The rooms are not very spacious, and we paid a big price while the view from the window was not on the street but inside square of the hotel so our window faced other hotel rooms windows. You would expect to get a better view in a suite.
breakfast very good, central trundle outside the window every morning at 6.30 a.m.(City Council)
Great, and very helpful staff! My accomodations were clean, well equipped, and centrally located from shopping centers, Pubs, restaurants and tour bus stops! Great value for your money!
The staff were very helpful and the location of the hotel was brilliant.
was happy the way front desk staff looked after me needs i like the breakfast that was put on before i left to run the marathron... plus the late check out that was great for me before my long drive home..
The location was perfect.
All the Staff were really freindly, especially the bar staff.
Frindly staff, clean rooms right in the center of the city, Value for money The work men using the same facilities as the guests
The location was very central, very close to Grafton Street and many restaurants and the bar bia restaurant which is in the hotel was very good. The only negative that I have was when I had a shower the shower curtain didnt stop the water from hitting the floor, so when I got out the bathroom floor was like a swimming pool.
it's location is very convenient room was quite dark
The Hotel is excellent, rooms clean and comfortable and I could recommend it to anyone on an overnight city center stay.The staff were very courteous and friendly.
great for the temple bar area. Good breakfast. friendly staff. nice design and bar/music/restaurant downstairs. Quiet room (we asked not to be above the bar, 3rd floor courtyard room was good) room a bit small but not a big problem for a couple of nights. Ask for one of the bigger rooms for a longer stay.
I found the staff to be helpful and informative. The location near the Bayswater underground was perfect. The bed was very comfortable and room was clean. It was noisy. The walls were thin, making it so you could hear doors closing, toilets flushing, and conversations in and outside...making it difficult to get a good night sleep.
The location!!! The staff The beds Minimal plug outlets so charging multiple devices was difficult.
was clean and in a good location, loud. did not sleep well. bar/club downstairs was extremely loud , we were awoken by staff at 4am for an emergency that wasn't actually an emergency
The staff here were fantastic and helpful with every request. Hotel was clean and close to Temple Bar.
Bathrooms were clean. Staff was pleasant. Very poor lighting. Very noisy location.
They charged for water in the room.
The location was key for me as a solo traveler. It's central to the Trinity College area, Dublin Castle, the Liffey River, Temple Bar and easy walks elsewhere. It is situated at the corner around 3 busy bars so expect it to be loud during the wee hours of the night. My fight landed super early in the morning so when I arrived at 6:30 am to the hotel I was pleased to find out my room was ready. The Wifi only works in the bar and lobby. I could stand in one corner of my room and maybe get a signal. The lighting was pretty dim and the king bed is 2 twin mattresses together, or feels that way with a seam down the middle of the bed and the pillows are a bit hard. If the cabbie you have doesn't know where the Paramount is when you tell them give the Turks Head bar as a reference.
Good value for the location! Walking distance from most attractions. Perfect for someone just looking for a base in Dublin and not planning to spend much time in a hotel room. Facilities a bit dated, but clean and in working condition. Very noisy, but that should be expected for a hotel in Temple Bar. Wifi did not work. Not ideal for someone looking for more than a bed to sleep in at night.
Great Location. Front Desk Told us to Park in their Garage.. Woke Up at 5am to go on our $200 each Prebooked tour..and the garage was locked, with NO WAY TO OPEN IT until 7am!!!! Completely missed our tour- whole reason for visiting Ireland!! Front Desk staff was useless, and their initial information was our trip fail. Refused to take responsibility for the issue!! Would never recommend the hotel to anyone. Bar downstairs also stays open until 3am, no matter what day of the week YOU WILL hear the noise. Hot. No fans or Air. Wifi only works in Lobby, but extremely slow.
Great location in temple bar with many tourist attractions right near. Very noisy till 4 or 5am because of being in temple bar but loved the atmosphere.
There is a bar on the ground floor that played extremely loud music until 3am- we eventually got moved to the 4th floor & could still hear it there- we had little sleep & it really spoilt our trip as we were exhausted the following day.
Classic hotel at the heart of the city. Extremely convenient! They could use some updates, but the bed was comfortable and the room and bathroom was clean. Also they had a mini fridge which apparently hotels don't have anymore or something.
very pleasant nothing
The price - very comfortable hotel at reasonable price The shower overflowed onto the bathroom floor
It was in a Great location and great having Bistro and bar in hotel Staff, especially in bar and somewhat in Bistro and reception, were not always available or very friendly
Good breakfast and an excellent hotel bar downstairs.
Great location and good value. En suite room was cosy and clean.
Basic but functional Shower valve hanging off wall. Hourly chime of ChristChurch Catherdral.
The Hotel was very clean and warm. Its location was perfect for Trinity college/Grafton Street/Temple bar the Castle and Cathedral The Cathedral bells kept me awake as they chime regularly and my room faced the building. The young girls on reception were unfriendly, and appeared bored most of the time,however, other staff were very helpful.and welcoming.
Good location, nice cafe&deli nearby, friendly staffs, large room for single use. I would like to stay again for the next visit to Dublin!
The Room was very, clean , great Location and ideal for a city break The Breakfast is quiet expensive for what you get.
Walk to everything. Most uncomfortable bed I've slept in in a long time. Shower floods bathroom. Basically all about where if you don't mind the what. Just not very elegant.
The price and location you just couldn't beat. Just a few short blocks off Temple Bar (5 minutes) and directly in front of Christchurch. With the DART (Tara Station) a short 10 minute walk, and Hueston train station 15-20 minute walk...depending on how fast you walk, you can literally hop all over Ireland. Shopping on Henry Street and Grafton Streets were also very close by. All in all everything is walkable from this hotel. the hotels itself is very clean and comfortable. The staff is very helpful, polite and very welcoming. I would definitely stay here again should my travel plans ever take me back to lovely Ireland! Nothing!
The staff were very friendly, the location is great and it has a nice oldie world atmosphere
Nice breakfast included in the price of the room and the hotel although a little tired had a lot of charactor Very noisy generator
The location and the comfort, it was just so cozy!!
the location. It was within walking distance to all theplaces you'd want to go to in temple bar.
The location is perfect,the staff at the reception were very friendly and helpfull,the hotel was safe and the rooms were acceptable because we were offered triple rooms instead of double which was very tight. the hot and cold seperated taps in the sink,the poor water shower pressure which was annoying and the noisiness all day and night long when people waking in corridors or at the upper floor.
Staff was very very friendly, beds were comfortable, bathroom was clean. Bar had limited food selection but food was really good. Would stay again but would look around for other hotels priced in the same range first. Room was small, WiFi didn't work well in the restaurant or bar, old style design with creeks in floor, slightly overpriced for what you get but affordable for Dublin. Patrons can be loud at bar time but the one overnight staff member made an effort to minimize it.
It had a nice bar and breakfast room room was tiny and very noisy
Majority of staff was friendly and the location was great-- you're within walking distance from anything you'll want or need. Everything about the room was tiny, including the shower that my husband could hardly fit in. I felt dirty in my room-- there was dirt in the carpet that you could feel walking across in your socks, dirt on the floorboards, dust on the counter tops, cobwebs in the corners of the ceiling, and mold in the shower caulking. The bed was hard as a rock and they only provided 2 paper-flat pillows-- and weren't obliging when we asked for only 2 more. For the amount of money I paid for this hotel room, I would at least like it to be clean and comfortable. The Library Bar was also disappointing, especially since this was one of the main reasons I wanted to stay in the hotel. The drinks were limited, the food even more so (and the bit I tried was not worth the price tag). Even though it has lounge chairs, it isn't cozy or comfortable because there are so many people-- its been over-marketed and now is no longer that intimate place to read or chat that it originally claimed to be.
The quality of the room, particularly the bathroom
I only stayed for one night, as I had tickets for a concert. I didn't gain much of an opinion in the short time I spent there but don't have a negative opinion. Only small gripe would be that there were stains on the carpet, water damage to the unit below the sink and a mark on the inside of the bedroom door which could have been repaired. as above
It's in a great location, in the heart of Dublin close to everything. The rooms are really very hot, too hot.
A very nice building with a luxery interieur! They only serve english type breakfast.
Too much noise from road and pubs at turning out time.We stayed in a 1st floor room and the only fresh air came from the air conditioning, it was not possible to open the windows
how handy it was to everywhere
The location right in the heart of the city Breakfast could have been better
Location to the city and Temple Bar area. Room was quite small, carpets dirty, cold draft through the small window and quite crampt. Notwithstanding this, the value was ok considering the location.
Nice view (4th floor) - would have been noisy on 1st floor
The location was perfect! Even though you are right in the middle of Temple Bar, we could not here a lot of noise, and our room was on the Liffey. Great view of the river. Very convenient location, short walks to Guinness brewery, St Stephens Greens, Grafton Street and GPO. Staff are very helpful and friendly. We arrived very early, but they rushed to get our room ready. They had it ready by the time we finished a coffee in their restaurant.
The staff were very helpful, I was able to leave my bag with them early in the day even though my room wasnt available. I couldnt get the hairdryer to work in my room
Location, nice room.
The situation of the hotel Some memebers of staff and problems in room (broken window, broken safe)
The location was fantastic - just where we wanted to be. The room was really nicley decorated considering the price, I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends. The bathroom was a bit drab but shower was really powerful which was great
its location it was very over priced.
Location is excelent.Services level is quite good and facilities are reasonably updated.Breakfast is also good. Yes, during weekends it is too noisy at night.Some times you have really problems to sleep.There is a Pub just downstairs .
Alexandria at the front reception desk was excellent and went out of her way to accommodate our needs. She treated everyone with respect and courtesy. Her attitude and demeanor made our stay worth it. Excellent location and walking distance to most sights in the city. The room could have been cleaner and the hot water was not always reliable. Parking a vehicle is not good. Do not pick up a rental car until you are ready to leave the city. The hotel could be a real jewel in Dublin if it was updated.
Heating did not work. Window would not close properly. Shower ran hot and cold. Room very dated.
The room was very clean - the bed incredibly comfortable! Heard the hotel was noisy but honestly we never had any problems. Staff were professional. Very happy with this place. This place is great. They could maybe do a little updating/renovating to the rooms but otherwise it's fine.
Excellent breakfast, interesting decor in the restaurant. Comfortable room. We were kept awake by hen parties on Sat but this is expected in any city. We don't wish to raise a complaint.
very centrally located extremely noisy
Good price for hotel in the city. Room could have been cleaner and the reception clerks could have been friendlier.
This hotel is in an amazing location. Their staff is excellent. The quality of the service provided by the staff would be the equivalent of that of a 5 star hotel. They were helpful and kind, and were always quick in response. The hotel is a little outdated, but you can tell the extra effort taken to ensure that the hotel is clean and well kept. We heard they are closing in May 2016 for 18 months to have a full renovation. I hope that's true, and that the same staff returns, because we would love to come stay again. The beds are really hard, and it is in the bar district so it is very loud on weekend nights. We still really enjoyed it, and if you are a person who likes to stay out late and have a good time on weekends this is the hotel for you. It isn't so much a negative, as it is that you should be aware of where you are booking.
It was central
The easi access to shops & theatres was excellent,also the breakfast and choice was pretty good..
Location, location, location! Staff was very accommodating. Rooms were dated, needed redecorating. Could have been cleaner.
Location is superb- if you want to be in the heart of a lovely area of Dublin, this is ideal and great value for money. For the price and the location, this is really fine. It can be a bit noisy at night time as there is a club underneath, but it is clean, central and if you're in town to enjoy dublin, it really is in a perfect spot.
