Reviewed 7 September 2015

The location is excellent, near Trinity College and the National Museum. Very comfortable room and 24 hour room service (at least you can get a sandwich, which. Is nice if you haven't quite caught up with the time change). One caution is that some rooms are up or down several steps from the elevator, so if that is an issue...

I'm a regular visitor here and am glad to report that it's as good as ever. Room shapes & sizes and general layout are a little quirky, on account of the joined buildings' backgrounds, but perfectly acceptable. The real stars here are the staff. Leonor & Jackie at front desk, Clive the Concierge, Ash in the bar, Anna in the...

Nice staff, not very large room, old building. Very good breakfast. Well located, very close to Trinity College, very close to a bus station that takes you everywhere in Dublin and also to the airport (Air Coach station). Good value, for Dublin.

Buswells Hotel has it all: Charm, Location and Outstanding Staff. The Air Coach from Dublin Airport stops just steps away from the hotel. Inside it is all old world charm. The reception and common areas are set up with comfy sofas and chairs to sit and enjoy a cup of tea, something from the bar or a bite to eat....

The two best things about this hotel, were the care and service of their people (Most notably Colm), and also a great location.We had issues with parking, for an example, but the hotel management, went way out of their way to accommodate and help us with a difficult situation.

We're so glad we chose Buswells rather than a characterless chain hotel. It's a lovely old building but very well maintained. Our room (218) was spacious, clean, and very comfortable for a family of three. Loved the cozy sitting area, with fireplace, off the lobby. Breakfast was considerably better than we expected, with fresh fruit, yogurt, baked goods, cereals, and...

As eveyone else has indicated, this historic hotel is in an ideal location for easy walk to just about everything. It is really a merger of 4 buildings, so while there is a lift, there can still be stairs to negotiate. Our fairly large room was in the back of the hotel with a large soaking tub. Coffee/tea pot, bottled...

This is my favorite hotel in Dublin. Beautiful rooms, gracious staff, located right across from the National Library and Parliament, a block from St Stephen's Square and St Ann's Church, and not far from Trinity College. Tea in the lavish lobby while you wait for your room. My home away from home.
