“Cool atmosphere and service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

The Dylan is one of Dublin's coolest hotels but as a Dublin, I haven't had the opportunity to stay there, instead I've been there for lunch, brunch, dinner and drinks. The hotel is at its best in the summer. The outdoor areas and simply fantastic, they're even better than the interiors (which are a little too eccentric for my tastest).

Food at the Dylan is a good but by no means great. The a la carte menu is over priced, as are drinks. Brunch is reasonably priced but the menu lacks favorites such as eggs benedict. Pity.

What really lets a hotel like this down is the service. It can be slow and lacklustre. Staff tend to be forgetful and show no initiative.

Moral of the story, go here for breakfast in the sun, a drink in the evening and make sure you're not in a rush.

Such a great weekend at the Dylan, from start to finish. It is a stylish hotel in a great setting and has such a great atmosphere. Went down for a rugby weekend and it was just perfect. Lovely room, only complaint was bed was too small, I'm used to bigger beds! But the bar is great, amazing cocktails and lovely nibbles. Had dinner in restaurant and was lovely, service was great. The breakfast was also lovely and has a nice area to sit outside on a sunny day. Only criticism really is that some of the communal areas etc aren't as clean as I would like them, but then I am very particular about that. The staff were very friendly. I would prefer to stay in this area rather than central Dublin as it is just gorgeous!

Room Tip: maybe ask for one with a bigger double bed!!

Even locals will tell you that this is the best place to stay in Dublin. Yes, it's not directly in the City Centre, but believe me this means you will get a decent night's sleep without the drunken crowds stumbling past your window when the bars close. This was our first trip out of the US, and the staff was very helpful and friendly as we tried to work out the kinks in our approach to international travel. They helped us figure out train ticketing and bus access. They also upgraded us from a normal room to a suite. The suite was fantastic, and large even by American hotel standards. The bed was comfortable, the appliances were new/modern, the bathtub had a TV on its far wall and the shower was of the quality you'd expect from a spa. The whole hotel made me think of a modern French bordello, and not in a bad way. The decor was modern and cool-looking. The breakfast there was also the best Irish breakfast we had our entire trip (and we ate an Irish breakfast at three other hotels while we were there). The room prices are a bit steep, but you actually get what you're paying for.

Room Tip: Try to get a room not facing the main street. The area is probably the most quiet in Dublin but on...

A very stylish & hip hotel. Nice big room with a very comfortable bed. REN toiletries. The staff were also extremely helpful in dealing with my requests. Great for work or pleasure!

We stayed here at St Patricks weekend and it was really good. The room 407 was amazing ... not much in the way of natural light but this was compensated for by the clever design of the room. Everything was as it should be for a 5 star hotel. Great fluffy robes and really nice REN toiletries ( which are not that easy to find in Ireland). The bathroom had a heated floor and although the lighting seemed dim there was a fab mirror- perfect for getting ready. The pre loaded i pod was also a nice touch. We had mojitos in the bar which were well made and breakfast in the lovely, light filled dining room. Highly recommended
