    Location was excellent right on O'Connell street. Residents bar nice and relaxed. No rush to leave in the morning it was after 12 when we left.

    very busy in the evening as weddings going on not the place for a relaxed meal!

    The only thing we didn't like about our stay in the hotel was the food choices! Our room was very comfortable, clean and quiet but we had dinner Sat evening in the bar, and while my mother was pleased enough with her pork kebab my vegetarian lasagne left a lot to be desired! Tasteless, small portion and dry! The staff are very friendly and pleasant but the lasagne was awful, generally the food choices were poor from the menu's we found, and were surprised at the lack of a restaurant!

    Location

    Had booked a 'delux' room - room we got was by no means 'delux' Service at breakfast was very poor - had to ask for juice, tea/coffee - even when requested these took a long time coming. At bufet there were many items missing (we were there early) and had to wait for these. Very disappointed with stay.

    I was surprised at how dated the rooms where, I thought it would have been much more luxurious. I was disapointed, it did not seem like a 4 star hotel.

    I liked the idea of staying at the Gresham because of its reputation. I also liked the fact that it wasn't far from everything going on. The reception areas was very nice as was the whole bottom floor.

    My room was definately not in my opinion a four star hotel room. More like a three star room but with a four star price tag.

    A very old but well maintained and furnished hotel which for us offered excellent value compared to hotels in the area. The food and service were excellent. The lobby was always bustling with the activity of an upscale crowd. We moved here from another area hotel which could not accommodate an extended stay. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise. It is an easy walk to most of the Dublin's popular spots. We found the restaurant to be excellent. We would book here again.

    The in room pants press didn't work, a very minor matter.

    I would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to visit and shop in Dublin the bar menue is value for money, althougth not the breakfast. We went to a cafe` 5mins walk from hotel for our breakfast.The room for very comfortable and excellent bathroom and comfy bed. When I booked my room I asked for a quite room at the rear of hotel and this is what I got.The staff were very friendly. We were also able to leave our cases at the hotel after we checked out for most of the day.

    The only complaint I have is that you are given very limited tea and sugar in the room. If I had asked for more which I didn,t, I sure the hotel would have done so.
