Great location, good service. Rooms are small and cramped as you would expect in a city hotel - similar to NYC.

Historical Traveler Reviews Brooks Hotel Dublin
A fantastic stay from start to finish
We booked this hotel as a result of reading the reviews on this site and we were so glad we did.
The hotel really is a gem and we were more than pleased when we arrived.
It is situated just off Grafton Street and is really well placed for everything in the city.
We could only get a 7.30am flight to Dublin and so arrived with our 2 year old daughter at the hotel at around 9am.
As soon as we arrived, the staff did their utmost to accomodate us and, despite rooms usually being ready for 2pm, we were allowed into ours at 9am where we all immediately fell asleep for a couple of hours!
Connor, the concierge was lovely and made our stay. From the moment we set foot in the hotel from the taxi, he made us feel really welcome, couldn't do enough for us and was really normal and down to earth instead of being the normal ,formal concierge type.
The hotel itself is spot on. Huge beds, central location, big hotel feel with small hotel service, fantastic staff, lovely breakfasts, cosy bar etc, etc, etc, etc.
This place has really opened my eyes to how poor the service from the supposedly 'big' hotels can be and how the accommodation and staff can make or break your stay.
By the way, don't go to Dublin for less than 7 days as you'll be wasting your time. There's just so much to see, do, eat & drink that you'll need at least a week to even scratch the surface.
I can't recommend Dublin & Brooks hotel enough.
Stay at the Brooks hotel
Have just come back from a long weekend, stopping at the Brooks hotel.
We chose it for our silver wedding anniversary. This was the first time we had visited the city and we were not dissapointed. The Brooks made us feel very welcome and the rooms were top class. Everyone was friendly and most helpfull. Not your usual stuffy hotel. This was fairly modern and well equipped hotel even though it was set on a small side street.It was quiet enough to be away from the hustle and bustle of hectic Dublin city centre.Should we return to Dublin we will be booking into this hotel again.Thankyou Brooks.
Superb Hotel - and a good nights sleep
We came across this hotel from the tourist office. We asked for a quiet hotel on a quiet road (you don't find many of those in Dublin!), and this hotel delivered. We had a superior room, which had a wonderful huge bed, 4 types of pillows to choose from and although the room overlooked an office block, it did ensure that Dublin late night life, didn't come directly into your room. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was wonderful and set you up for the days sightseeing. Keep up the good work Brooks - I certainly will be spreading the word about your hotel.
First Class Stay
We stayed at the hotel as part of our Silver Wedding celebrations....the staff found this out and left us wine and chocolates!!! beautiful room very friendly staff...concierge Connor was extremely helpful.......close to all main shopping areas and WONDERFUL traditional Irish Pub...the Hairy Lemon
Just had our second stay in Dublin - & second stay at Brooks - re-confirmed our view that it is a wonderful hotel, great location, superb rooms & breakfast, but above all, excellent staff - who just cannot do enough, are helpful, charming & focussed on making your stay great. We will go back, & would recomend it to anyone & everyone contemplating going to Dublin (which you should - it is a great place).
An excellent hotel.
Good hotel - spread thew word
Booked Brooks Hotel for the All Ireland weekend of the 28th of September 03. I told friends where we were staying and the majority had not heard of the hotel before, so this was a little worry for us. The taxi driver had never hard of it either.
However on arrivial we were pleasantly surprised and the rooms were lovely and very modern. The staff especially the concerige were very friendly. The cooked breakfasts were very tasty also.
The downstairs lounge/gym should be advertised on arrival as we only found aout about it when we were leaving. This area looked very relaxing with large sofas/small tables and a great colour scheme.
All in all we would definitely return - spread the word and advertise!!
Great Dublin Hotel
My husband and I stayed here for one night. Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable (for us this means very cool temperature which we were able to achieve very quickly!). The front desk staff and the Concierge, Connor, were all extremely friendly and helpful. While our room was perfect, we had a bad experience in the hotel restaurant. The food itself was superb but overshadowed by some of the worst service we had in Ireland. There were only 3 other tables of customers in the restaurant yet my husband had to get up 3 times just to get someone to bring us more bread/water - very disappointing!
Service is #1
Brooks hotel is in as great location (difficult to find), but very centrally located. The rooms were spacious, clean, and warmly decorated. The staff will go out of there way to make you feel welcome.
The service was some of the best we saw in all of Ireland, and that is saying something, considering how wonderful the people are there.
Wonderful Hotel ; Confusing location
This hotel had small rooms compared to standard in the USA but were extremely well-kept. Staff was cordial and extremely helpful. I'd stay there next time in Dublin. Breakfast was good but not excellent. Who would have thought black and white pudding is really sausage. Only issue was that hotel was on a 2 block long street and was confusing to walk to.
Excellent Dublin hotel
An excellent, warm, comfortable hotel, near fantastic bars and restaurants.
Clean, classy and well staffed, it was a delight to stay in.
