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.

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. What's more is you can't hear any noise at night thanks to it's quiet street location, yet literally only 2 minutes from grafton...

This hotel is right opposite the Dail and a great place to sit in the bar and people watch, or politician watch. The lobby and the bar area are very comfortable and a great place for a drink or tea. On a recent visit to Dublin my usual hotel was booked decided to try staying here on a recommendation. I...

The hotel is really conveniently located in this very walkable city. Staff and fairly nice, breakfast was adequate and the room was spacious. However there is need for a bit of attention to detail here. The screws in the bathroom door handle were loose and the whole thing came free on day two. All the taps needed new washers as...

Excellent choice. Historic hotel in the centre of Dublin. Not for those perhaps who like ultra modern but a good choice for those who like a traditional look and feel. Good size room and excellent service. Large and comfortable bar which seems to be the place to be for the nearby parliament.

This hotel can't be beaten for its central location - 5 minutes from Grafton street shopping,Trinity College and St Stephen's Green. It is a great place to stay if you are on your own (which I have done) - you can eat in the lounge and not feel at all out of place. The staff are welcoming and friendly and...

Reviewed 14 December 2016

I stayed at Buswells for three nights in early December. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of many tourist destinations, and within an easy taxi ride to others. The room I stayed in was a single room, i.e., a single (what we in the States call a "twin") bed. While smaller than what I am accustomed to, it...
