A problem with controlling the heating in the room, to which the reception gave contradictory answers hence the 4 stars. Generally a good hotel with a clear history of service. A good location. We would stay again

My wife and myself had a fantastic 2 night stay in the Gresham. We were lucky to stay in the Ian Richie Suite in the hotel, which was an amazing room - with our own sitting room, fireplace, bar, and the bathroom included a Jacuzzi!! The master bedroom was huge, and as stated, it was just ourselves, but if the...

Just had a lovely afternoon in the Gresham having afternoon tea. After searching the other hotels in Dublin this hotel was just suited to what my mam would like. Food surrounds and staff all excellent. It was lovely to sit there and watch the world go by on O Connel St.

We were a bit disappointed overall with our stay. There was a warm welcome and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. The main ground floor area was very nice indeed and certainly lived up to the reports of being a lovely hotel. The reason for only grading this hotel as average was that our room was freezing when we...

This hotel has more competition in the 21st century from other Dublin Hotels. However, for location, good staff and not being overly priced, it can't be bettered. Their URL is a permanent favourite in my bookmarks.
