We have stayed at The Gresham before and found it very welcoming and in a great location. Sadly this visit we were not impressed. On arrival we were really pleased to have received a room upgrade. However, Sunday morning, we found there was no hot water to shower or bathe. It was practically impossible to get in touch with reception...

Very well located on O'Connell Street, this hotel is a great stepping off point for travellers to Dublin. The welcome and staff service was excellent. But the rooms are very tired, the bathrooms in worse condition. 1990's tiles and stained sinks are not good. The bed, however, is very comfortable and the room size good. It is a large hotel....

We stayed in this hotel when we were in town for the Georgia Tech Football Game. This was a very convenient location - we could walk to all the major attractions in Dublin and it was also convenient to a shopping Promenade. The room was spacious, though it was a bit dated. Similarly, the room overheated despite cool temperatures outside....

Arrive on the AirCoach service from the airport and you will be dropped right outside the front entrance to the hotel (ramp and stepped access). Check-in was friendly and efficient. Our room in the Lavery Wing was at the rear of the hotel, overlooking a functional internal court, so quieter than those overlooking O'Connell Street (where in November 2016 there...

This hotel is in a prime location and is generally a pretty comfortable stay. It was a ten-minute walk from the railroad station and the airport bus and taxi stands were steps away. The staff was professional if appearing a little harried. I appreciated getting an early check-in. Room was very comfortable; my main irritation was with the TV which...

I recently stayed at Riu Plaza The Gresham with my 20 year old daughter and thoroughly recommend it to everyone! I have stayed before with my sister but wasn't sure if my daughter would love it as much as me. I needn't have worried as she thought everything about it was perfect . We stayed in The Lavery Wing which...
