“have already booked to go back!”
Abbey Hotel is excellent value for money with friendly staff and clean rooms. Close to Dublin city centre and crawling distance from Temple bars! Slight noise from downstairs, but not enough to keep you awake - am going back soon, Dublin an amazing city and Abbey a good base to explore from.
Great location in city centre, helpful staff who advised on restaurants, room good size, tv, not noisy, great breakfast. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. CLOSE TO OLYMPIA THEATRE AS WELL
We went to Dublin to see our favourite band play in the Academy bar which is two doors up from the hotel so it had a perfect location for stumbling home! The room was small but clean. The bed was very comfortable. The staff were friendly and there was always someone on the front desk. There is a late night bar for the use of guests who haven't hit their limit! Only two wee things that I could mark it down for. The full irish breakfast is to be avoided if you are weak of stomach but there are many other cafes etc close to the hotel that you can get decent food in. I had a blister on my foot and asked for a plaster/band-aid at reception, they said they didn't have any but would get one for me. I thought that was very kind but I never did get that plaster!
“Good Location, Nice Price”
this is a good hotel for the money in a nice location.the included breakfast was very good. the staff were first class and very helpful.
“central based for shopping and entertainment”
Yes a good hotel to stay in, very comfortable and includes a lively bar attached.
I booked a double room for single use and was initially given a very pleasant room with a double bed plus table and easy chair. It was, however, very noisy from an extractor at the rear of the central area of the hotel. I requested a change and was given a room with a double and also a single bed. Much quieter. Not a great outlook and rather smoky smelling from adjoining rooms but perfectly comfortable and adequate for my needs. The bathroom needed some updating but again was all in working order. Breakfast was OK, if somewhat pricy but that was the case in the whole of Dublin. Being alone I did not have any particular worries about the neighbourhood although many of the shops were slightly scruffy or boarded up. But it was so easy to get into the shopping area and across the river to the Temple Bar so was excellent in that respect. All in all a comfortable stay.
“An excellent location, staff were rather unhelpful”
It would be hard to beat thi hotel on location as it was extremly close to the city centre, literally if you walked to the end of the road you are in O' Connell Street. I wouldn't really say this was a hotel for famillies with small children as the hotel has two clubs in close range which play music till around 2.30. The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable, there is a good layout where there are only 6 rooms per floor and they are divided into sets of two so u only have two neighbours which is good for when you want to have a nap. The downside as some reviewers have noted rightly were the hotel staff, apart from i think one person behind the bar who was irish the rest were all foreign. I found the reception woman rather moody and unapolgetic hen we had to wait longer than expected to get into the room, perhaps this was because we were 19 and they thought we wouldnt kick up as fuss, who knows. Another senario was when we recieved a call from reception saying someone was going to come to our room in an hour to fix something, when we questioned what needed fixing as we didnt report anything he replied, i dont know, my manager didnt say. Now we found this slightly bizzare as surely that was going to be a question they could predict people would ask!! Apart from those things it was good and would stay there again if they got new stafff! Also the breakfast isnt technically a buffet which i first thought.
Just off O'Connell Street, within easy walking distance of most of the attractions of the city (including Temple Bar).
