We are staying here right now for one night thankfully. We asked for a high floor and we got the first floor. That isn't the issue. However being on the first floor it seems that you get everyone's running water flowing through the wall. This has been a constant stream for at least an hour. Please insist on a high...

I spent several nights in this hotel during bussiness trip. Big room. Clean. Helpful staff. During breakfast time, restaurant was a bit noisy and overcrowded, but staff was doing the best. When returning at night from city, there were guards asking for room number - it´s funny way of control, but I understand that neccessary in a city as Dublin...

The building is beautiful, with an old, charming style. Good overall service with efficient and polite staff. Breakfast is good although not the best I have seen in hotels of comparable standard. Nice, large and comfortable bedrooms. The bathroom concept is clearly outdated but the bathroom itself is absolutely clean. Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel but, unfortunately, the...

I stayed at the Gresham for a total of eight nights. All in all, it's a good choice for a place to stay, although it has some challenges too. The facility seems to be made up of various wings that were joined together to form a single, fairly large hotel. As a result, there are a number of quirks, such...

Dear Duncan C Thank you for your review following your stay at The Gresham Hotel. The Gresham Hotel has 323 guest bedrooms and is Dublin's oldest hotel. As opposed to a number of wings, or buildings, simply joined together to form a hotel, the hotel has been extended a number of times over its life, to the building we have...

The hotel seems perfectly nice. Room is clean and serviceable with a few updated parts, but the overall feel is that it is a little dated. Can't fault the location and the staff have been pleasant enough. I didn't have any food in the hotel, so can't comment on that.

Can't thank the staff enough for such a wonderful stay. Nothing was too much effort for both Managers and front house staff alike. Obviously the decor has been upgraded to a high standard lately and breakfast which included Bailey's porridge, yes I said Bailey's porridge was both hearty and welcoming. Right in the centre of the city you couldn't get...

Here on business - so this would review would be even more painful if personally paying...I am literally freezing in this room despite three reasonable attempts at having the heat turned on in my room. There is zero service to be recognized here. Colleagues staying at WESTBURY, WESTIN and SPENCER. TRY THESE OTHER OPTIONS FIRST!

I stayed at the Gresham having visited Dublin for the weekend with a large party of friends and not one of us could fault the hotel generally.
