Took a last minute 4 day vacation to Dublin. Arrived at the hotel in the very early morning but had reserved rooms for the prior day so were showed to a wonderful room with a balcony overlooking the river.

We returned to the Spencer hotel for a second visit. It's location is ideal for concerts at the nearby o2 and for Dublin Convention Centre. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Buffet breakfast is great. The staff are very friendly. Will definitely stay again.

We selected the hotel for our two night stay in Dublin in early April and we were very pleased with our choice. The location as stated by other reviews is very good. The hotel is close to public transportation that we found easy to use several times and short walk to the major attractions in downtown. The staff was very...

I've stayed here twice now and couldn't fault the hotel. Huge comfy beds! It's clean and modern and staff are all very helpful. We had one staff member in the bar who had a bad attitude but after informing the manager she couldn't do enough to rectify this for us. The hotel is a great location- 15 minutes walk or...

The Spencer is well-located for the Dublin tech and financial hubs, with modern, stylish and comfortable rooms. I visited for a night in October, and had a flawless experience, with nothing at all to fault. There are a number of restaurants close by the hotel - easily enough variety for a week if you're tired / working late and don't...

On a recent one night trip to Dublin for a concert we chose The Spencer as it was so close to the 3 arena and were delighted with our choice.

We stayed here primarily as the location in the docks area was ideal for the concert that my wife and I were going to this weekend at the 3arena. It is a clean, modern, boutique style hotel, about a 15-20 minute stroll away from the centre and temple bar area depending on how quickly you stroll! This alone makes it...
