It was like staying on a building site. Unacceptably noisy. There was scaffolding directly outside my window with work men able to look inside the room. There was heavy drilling and hammering from 9am to 4.30pm.

Visited Dublin around the 2016 Christmas period. Had a wonderful stay at the Merrion Hotel. Well located. Within walking distance of parks, shops and places to see. A short walk to the hop-on/hop off bus stops. Excellent service and great accomodations. Try the Cellar Bar downstairs for a pint of Guinnes! Guaranted!

The experience at The Merrion was exceptional from the moment we arrived. The ability of all staff members to do the right thing always was a joy to see. It was not cheap,but everyone should experience the Merrion.

We were parents and two children staying in inter-connecting rooms on a family promotion for one night. Unfortunately we were staying during the recent renovation works and there were builders clanging and banging outside our window on scaffolding throughout the day. So I think it's impossible to write a fair review of a hotel that I imagine is very peaceful...

We loved the Merrion. From the minute we arrived in the morning from the airport to when we left four days later our stay perfect. We travel frequently with Olivia aged 4, however not all hotels are as welcoming with young children. The room décor is classic, clean and comfortable, housekeeping were unintrusive, polite and attentive. The hotel has all...

This hotel deserves high praise. Great location for walking and getting around. Breakfast here was excellent each morning. Even the children loved it. The bar is cozy and inviting with extended hours. We enjoyed the afternoon tea with the artist theme. I would have loved a tour of all the artwork in the hotel.

Lovely hotel, with great staff, amazing central location but lacking in spa features. Being heavily pregnant I was looking for a central hotel which offered great spa features, which this seemed to offer online though in reality it was a bit disappointing. The hotel itself is beautiful, great size rooms (we had "garden view" on ground floor which due to...

A quiet and clean nicely equipped room, chocolates at arrival, fresh water every day, all you expect from this type of upper class hotel. The employees make the difference: friendly, showing interest, helping out when needed. Certainly a place to return to.
