A lovely hotel on the riverside just far enough away from the town and an easy straight walk into the heart of town. The hotel is very comfortable and squeaky clean. A gorgeous bar with delicious cocktails and a very comfortable seating area. The leisure facilities are superb. The restaurant was also excellent value and lively food. There is s...

We were relocated to The Spencer, after an issue with our original hotel booking. The receptionist at the hotel were very friendly and helpful given the situation. Room was clean, spacious and the bed amazingly comfortable. Based right on the River Liffey it was a short walk into town along the river, yet far enough out not to be extremely...

I took my nephew and 2 niece's to a show at 3Arena with 1 night incl. breakfast. What a treat. The kids described it as futuristic in style. Located about 10 mins walk from O'Connell bridge and from 3Arena, it was our Ideal location. Next stop was the hotel leisure centre before dinner. The staff at the pool on Friday...

I loved the rooms here, very comfy beds, spotless clean sheets, upgraded for a Liffey view and balcony, well worth it. Liked the ambience in the bar and lobby and dj playing good tunes. Will definitely stay again.

Really nice hotel, really clean, the bar area is ok, but I really liked the location it's across the bridge from the temple bar district so the area is a little quieter, but you can quickly get to where you want to go.

We stayed at the Spencer for 2 nights in Dublin. We picked this hotel because it was a good price point, had a boutique feel and was within walking distance of the major Dublin sites. We arrived pretty early and were pleasantly surprised that a room was available for us. Arriving at 10 am we were expecting to just leave...

Booked an overnight stay (deluxe room) for my birthday, when we arrived everything looked great, the lobby area and bar are beautiful. Unfortunately the rooms are average at best, when we initially walked into our 'deluxe' room I believed we hadn't been given the correct room, no sofa/chairs, no bath robes, no big window with a view (all these items...

We stayed at The Spencer for 3 nights last week - everything about it was great ! Check in was quick and easy, the room was really comfortable and quiet and the location - for both the 3Arena and the city centre was excellent. The hotel is in a quiet location but only 5 minutes walk into the heart of...

Lovely room and excellent facilities- made full use of the pool. Only a 20 minute walk into the main centre. Would definitely stay here again and try out the cocktail bar next time as we didn't have enough time to stay in the hotel!!

I reckon one of the things that marks a decent hotel is the standard of toilet paper - the Spencer gets full marks for that! They got good marks for lots of other things which matter but also zero marks for other things, hence the average mark. Arrived at 14.52, tired from flight, told room not quite ready, check in...
