            The location was the best in Dublin and the bar staff were great, very friendly. I will stay in the Gresham again if I stay in Dublin.

            The beds were a bit hard but other than that everything was point on

            Great experience,got upgraded to a fabulous suite when the manager heard my girlfriend and I were celebrating an anniversary,this made our weekend superb.

          • Couple
            8.2

            Staff were very nice, breakfast was lovely, especially the coffee. The location right in the centre of O'Connell Street was a definite advantage to a foreign traveller.

            Our fridge in the room was stocked with the minibar but did not work, thus nothing was cold. Also walking from the parking lot around to the front of the building, with our bags, was a bit inconvenient but did not detract from what was a lovely staff overall.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            The central position and the friendliness of the staff

            We had to change rooms. I had requested a non smoking, non pets room and the first room reeked of cigarettes. Plus, on entering the hotel it smelt like an old peoples home.

            The location was very good & I found the staff very pleasant & accommodating.

            Our room was very small & not particularly inviting as it was dark being at the rear of the hotel.
