Pros: Great location. Just a few minutes away from the Trinity College and other major attractions. Nice bar and sitting area in the lobby with a fireplace. Pretty building. Nice and friendly staff. Cons: The hotel isn't designed for mobility. There are so many steps so if you have a walking difficulty or you're carrying a suitcase, this isn't for...

Our first impression on arrival was "what a beautiful classic hotel". Buswells is Styled in the classic tradition of older hotels the lobby and bar/restaurant area are an absolute delight.

We stayed at Buswells for two nights and were very happy with our choice. The location couldn't be better with a ten minute walk to Trinity College or Grafton Street shopping. The Temple Bar area is just a few minutes further. Although it is right near everything it is on a quiet street. The room was large, clean and comfortable....

The meeting rooms are generally good, but some are below ground with no natual light......therefore not a great place to be locked up into. The bar snack, lunches are however pretty good, and good value. The staff are mostly very friendly and helpful. Inevitably, I will be back, but I hope the staff won't beat up the crockery in the...

We had a great stay at Buswells for a girls weekend. The location is excellent, everything we could have wanted was on the doorstep, great bars, restaurants and shopping. We had two rooms, both were quite different but equally as comfortable and the finishing touches are very nice (robes, chocolates, short bread and toiletries). My bed was super comfy and...
