Well located, comfortable and spacious”

We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent in Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin Hotel and would definitely recommend it for future guests. Positives: - great location in the City Centre - close to shops, restaurants, tourist attractions, etc. - spacious, comfortable rooms - good wifi, satellite TV channels, safe box, kettle/ tea & coffee, freezer, working desk and large mirrors - large bathroom with nice bath & walking shower - breakfasts (although the buffet spread was the same every day, the overall choice was good and despite large numbers using the dining hall, all members of staff were very efficient and did their best to make sure there's some social distance between tables and no or little queues forming inside, which was very reassuring) - swift check in / check out process Negatives: - room service (even though the cleaners roamed around every morning our room was only cleaned once) Thank you.

Riu The Gresham Dublin”

My friend & I chose this lovely hotel for a 2 night stay prior to a cruise around Ireland. We enjoyed our room & appreciated the staff's accommodation of our request for two beds. Breakfast was delicious & ample. The only real down side was no concierge to help with reservations. However the location is only steps from the Tourist Information Office & the Hop On Hop Off "Big Bus." Highly recommend this hotel unless you're looking for something more modern. It is an old, historic place in the heart of Dublin.

Parking, had to phone to see if we could use the car park before check in. It would be good to make that clearer on the booking confirmation. Also, getting to reception from the car park is a bit long and problematic especially with luggage

Only come here if you are rich”

Got a tiny room with 2 small single beds after paying a huge amount of money for room. Had breakfast in room - bad idea, on our behalf as no where to put it . Only come to hotel if you are rich and money is no object , then I’m sure you will have a wonderful experience . The hotel itself is beautiful and the location perfect , but , as for the rooms, you would get a much nicer room for the money elsewhere , unless you are rich and can afford to upgrade to a much larger room. (Be awaye, the carpark is £17/night for your car and room service for breakfast is £15 , just fir the privilege of someone bringing your breakfast to the room ...ie they say it is £7.50/gray charge , ..we had our breakfast brought up on one tray but because it’s 2 people, we were charged £15 and that doesn’t include the actual breakfast .
