Historical Traveler Reviews Browns Hotel and Apartments Dublin
Shame about the Room!
We were disappointed with the room and felt it was more like a hostel room than the supposedly hotel that we stayed in. We were on the ground floor right by reception and heard the bell/phone ringing throughout the night and the heavy door permanently being slammed. The bedroom itself was badly in need of decorating and the bathroom very small, especially for my 6'4 boyfriend. The radiator did not work and we had a plug in heater that was not on when we got there in the evening and we were extremely cold! The description on their webpage is not a true description of the hotel.
When we go back to visit Dublin, we will definitely be staying somewhere more appealing.
Not as advertised
I found my room at the top of some very narrow steep stairs and no one to help. the room was pokey and had dirty window and corners. I would expect this of a cheap B&B but not a hotel that advertises itself as quality period tastefully decorated. I did no stay n the end. for £15 per night more I stayed somewhere far superior. I cannot comment on the staff as I only saw the desk guy who was not exactly welcoming
We visited the hotel in March this year, and on arriving at reception too early for check in, we were met by very friendly staff, who let us leave our bags etc, the reception, dining and sitting area were very clean and modern. However on our return later in the day when we got up to our room we saw another side to the hotel. The hotel is in need of a complete overhaul, various cracks etc in the walls, stairs, the bedroom itself was of adequate size, but required to be cleaned a bit more and the windows could do with being a bit more secure, the ensuite has some ventilation and dampness problems that didn't make it very pleasant.
Overall we felt they ahd great staff but it wasn't value for money.
Good deal in an expensive city
Stayed at Browns Hotel, Dublin Feb. 2004. Great little hotel with great staff. Excellent location, we were able to walk everywhere with no trouble. The city was very expensive and this hotel was the best we found for the price. No lift, but the staff carried all our bags ( party of 6) up and downstairs!!! Not a fancy place but clean and very adequate.
Booked an 8 bed room for 8 mates, arrived to find they had squeezed 2 extra beds in so we had 2 strangers. Lots of arguing and hassle to rectify the situation for which we were blamed. V small room. Not clean. Toilets miles away and no locks on doors ! Full irish breakfast = toast and weetabix. Avoid
I found the hotel was average in the accommodation (though we did have a dodgy window) but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
Very small pokey rooms.
I stayed at the Browns hotel last minute booking via the web. I found
it expensive for what it was. A small albeit clean room. There were no
facilities to make drinks and, although tea and coffee was free it
meant a walk up and down 4 flights of stairs. The breakfast was good
but there was no way to obtain food after this. The location is pretty
central but not really picturesque. The staff were very helpful though.
I would not rush back there again.
The small and difficult to use shower was a slight inconvenance, but was more than made up for by the helpful and knowledgable staff. Great service by the staff.
Great value hotel!
Great value for money boutique style hotel in central location. Also has hostel next door for backpackers. So much to see and do in Dublin. Can't wait to go back.
great three days in dublin, recommend the Abbey theatre, and Beauleys lunch time theatre, take a city bus tour and make sure you visit the book of Kells and the long room.

... end! We walked back to the hotel.
So, in two hours, I think we spent more in Dublin than we spent the whole time in York. I remember people saying how expensive Dublin was and THEY WERE RIGHT! Luckily, we've been very good with our money so it shouldn't be a big deal- but we still have to be careful not to spend our euros on "dumb stuff". I can tell you I'll have much smaller bills for our next taxi ride!
... into focus I looked around and found that I was not the only who had come up with the idea to come here. I was surrounded by homeless people. There were probably over 12 or 15 of them. I turned again and found to my right that Kiah had also made it here! Thank goodness. I was worried that the two of us weren’t going to be able to find one another, but we had. We had found each other and 15 homeless people. It smelled terribly, but there was nothing we could do. At ...
... enough to become a fan. In the late afternoon we traveled to the Octagon offices in London. Aside from the delicious biscuits, we learned a little about the company. We got to see some of the advertisements and business they sponsor, learned a little about what goes into making a commercial, and saw all the strenuous research they do for the companies they ...
Another early rise, with both Colleen and I waking up around 5.30am, we still haven't had a decent sleep in yet, must still be adapting to the new time zone. We were able the sort out our itinerary for the day. Today was a day to to explore Dublin. After a quick breakfast at the train station a few mins walk from our hotel, we were off to Kilmainham Gaol via bus, after nearly getting lost finding the bus stop. Kilmainham Gaol is Dublin's version ...
... and we are on the plane. It is now, 12 noon. Four hours. Shortly after getting seated an announcement from the deck says there are still 100 passengers stuck in the long lines. As I write, the announcement came on to prepare for departure, it is 12:40 and the last passengers boarded! Whew, we are pooped. Although departure has been a bit of a hassle, we have enjoyed another fabulous trip with friends. Where to ...
