I had the most pleasant stay in Buswells a few weekends ago. A few friends came over from the UK, and they couldn't of picked a more central hotel really. This hotel is steeped in tradition as it's right opposite our government buildings. The staff epically Ash the barman couldn't of been more helpful and pleasant. I booked a cosy...

Everything about this hotel is fabulous. Location is the best. Cleanliness is superb. Food is great. Staff goes out of their way to accommodate. Wish rooms were a bit bigger, but would not be willing to sacrifice a thing for it.

My daughter and I spent 5 nights here and we loved it! Rooms were clean, beds were so comfortable with big fluffy down comforters, and bathrooms were luxurious. The front desk people were always so helpful and kind and the restaurant attached was a great place to enjoy food, drinks or a cup of coffee. Highly recommend. I actually miss...

Buswells is a cozy urban retreat that I will visit over and over again when I come to Dublin. Although technically a "hotel" it has a very warm "homey" feeling. I loved being able to sit on the cozy sofa next to the warm fire and just read... sipping on a lovely cappuccino ... a guilty pleasure that my real...

Came across this nice little hotel in South City Center when looking for a place close to the museums, Grafton St., and restaurants. I could not have picked a better spot. For what I considered to a very reasonable price of 115 euro, I received a warm, comfortable single bed, a great bar serving some great Irish whiskey and a...

This hotel is super close to St. Stephen's Green and within walking distance of Trinity, Temple Bar, etc., but off of the main drag so it's the perfect combination of ease and relaxation. The bus from the airport drops off and picks up about a block away. My room, a single, was small, but well designed. The staff were helpful.

I last stayed in this hotel several years ago and it is still very impressive. The location is ideal, near to the city centre but in a quiet area where there is little or no noise at night. It is within easy walking distance to the centre of town. Buswells is a traditional 'character' hotel decorated to a very high...

This historical gem is located near important tourist venues, the staff is delightful, but of course parking is difficult. I will be staying there again this April. Clean and historical; a total delight.
