It took us a few minutes to realise the reception was on the first floor of the hotel, but that was ok. A bit of a quirky layout with the lift only going from certain floors to certain floors and at certain times. We were glad we didn't have the buggy with us! All-in-all an okay stay as it was...

Very central with Stephens Green and Grafton St a stones throw away, above average rooms for the price and great staff, very friendly and welcoming. Welcome cocktail on arrival, good bar and good breakfast. Noise from nearby bars is to be expected and no different from any property in this location. Spa fitted me in at short notice and was...

The Dawson couldn't be better located, and within 5 minutes walk of Dublins best restaurants pubs and clubs. Our room was spacious, nice decor and very quiet (room 312). Gorgeous Sea Food restaurant also acts as the breakfast room. Staff very professional courteous and friendly.

Great location walk out the door and you are in the middle of everything a stones throw from Grafton street for shopping beside loads of good restaurants and pubs . The only disadvantage to staying here is the stairs, as it's an old Georgian building its only elevator is at the back of the bar and not accessible to all...

We book the suite room (Baco?) and it was UNBELIEVABLE. We thought we were in a movie!!! We rarely get a better room than the usual standard room, but since the price difference was not so high we went for it, and no regrets at all. The hotel is very well located and the staff was very helpful.

If you are looking for a hotel to get a good nights' rest, clean surroundings, working toilets, and a quiet night's sleep then this is not the place.

Excellent location and great staff but the room which had everything had a window looking out onto a blank wall with pipes at just 2 foot away so no light and felt a bit closed in. Did not really bother us for one night but would not have liked to stay longer in it.
