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.

Modernes Hotel, direkt am Ufer der Liffey

Pros: Tolle Lage, schönes, ruhiges Zimmer Es war unser Hochzeitstag und wir wurden mit einer handgeschriebenen Glückwunschkarte, Rosenblättern auf dem Bett und Pralinen überrascht! Toll!
Cons: Wir hatten nichts zu bemängeln und haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen.
