We stayed at Buswells for three nights in August 2016 as a family of four. It's difficult to find a room in europe that accommodates four and Buswells offered the perfect location, price, and accommodation. The location: fantastic - Buswells itself is on a quiet street but it is just two blocks away from all the action, including great dining,...

We loved the old-fashioned charm of this boutique hotel as well as the warm, professional service. The location speaks for itself - you can roll out of bed into the Archaeology Museum, you can easily walk to key tourist sites, but it's a bit out of the cray-cray crowds. I expect that room sizes vary, but ours (number 100) was...

I have been staying at Buswells annually since 1981; since 2009, I've visited Buswells several times a year. I'm always happy to return. Why is Buswells good? 1) the staff, who are always friendly, pleasant, and helpful; 2) the cleanliness of every room, both private and public; 3) Buswells Bar, not a 'bar' in the American sense but a dark-wood...

Stayed at Buswells last week on business, superb location, lovely room, expected traditional but room had been refurbished very nice. Staff are very friendly and attentive, nice to experience some good Irish hospitality. Highly recommend if looking for a hotel in the city centre, rates good value, suitable for either business or a personal trip.

Reviewed 6 January 2017

Great little downtown hotel, perfectly situated. Good staff but mostly one is left to ones own devices which was fine for us. Our room (121) was unbearably hot but as we were only there one night we did not attempt to have this rectified. Breakfast was very good. Room impeccably clean. I will definitely use this hotel again.

I stay in Dublin City centre a few times a year for social occasions. This is the first time staying in Buswells and I was pleasantly surprised by the room size. It wasn't your usual box room.
