Nice hotel close to amenities

Pros: Location
Cons: Room service cooked breakfast was cold and not very nice
A nice hotel in general, spacious rooms, clean and comfortable, friendly and helpful staff. Situated perfectly as a short walk to the centre but far enough out for a quiet and good nights sleep. There are coffee shops and restaurants and fast food takeaway literally outside the hotel door as is the bus stop for the airport and the hop on hop of Dublin tour bus. I would definitely use The Spencer again and I would highly recommend.

The Staff are Great

So I could drone on about how the hotel was lovely and the rooms were great etc. All of that is true but the real headline is that the staff of the Spencer Hotel are so accommodating and kind. A real pleasure to interact with.

Good place

Really nice hotel with a great bar downstairs. Car parking isn't the easiest, but that's the only slight downside. Staff were friendly, room was brilliant, bed comfy and shower AMAZING!

Stayed for a couple of nights as a treat for my partners 40th Birthday. Staff were friendly, cocktails were amazing and the room was fabulous. It's not the cheapest place to stay but if you want a bit of luxury within walking distance to Dublin main attractions then would highly recommend.

Zentral gelegenen

Idealer Ausgangspunkt Im neuen Stadtteil, vor dem Hotel Bushaltestelle auch für Hop on Hop off. Herzliches Personal im Frühstücks Restaurant. Sie lesen einem jeden Wunsch von den Augen. Auch für Allergiker geeignet. Laktose und Gluten Intoleranzen... einfach die Mitarbeiter fragen.

Super Hotel für einen Städtetrip nach Dublin

Pros: Ich fand das Frühstücksbuffet ausgezeichnet. Auch die Angestellten waren äusserst freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Cons: Leider konnte man den Verkehr von draussen relativ gut hören, denke aber für die meisten Leute ist das kein Problem.
Location: Man braucht nur wenige Minuten zu gehen und ist bereits mitten im Herz von Dublin. Auch super mit dem öffentlichen Verkehr erschlossen.
Nachdem wir die Heizung in Betrieb genommen hatten war eigentlich alles bestens. Super Lage, freundliches Personal, sehr grosses Frühstücksbuffet... Auf jedenfall eine Adresse die man sich merken sollte wenn man wieder einmal nach Dublin will.
