  • Dublin's noisiest hotel?

    by

    We stayed at Hotel Issacs on a Saturday night. When we returned to our room at 1.00am there was a disco in the hotel which made the floor of our room vibrate! It took over an hour for the noise level to be turned down (after 2 phone calls) In the morning the duty manager was not very helpful so we would not stay there again. the

    Directions: Opposite the main bus station.

    HOT!

    by

    We got this room through a holiday share my friend and her husband have and we paid next to nothing. Our room was very basic and gave a view to a corridor of another aisle, but we were there only to sleep so it didn't matter. Beds were comfortable, room and bathroom clean. There was no closet, which would have been nice.

    The room was HOT! Like a sauna!!! First night we had difficulties to sleep but we got used to it and after our day in Malahide and Howth we really appreciated the warmth of our room!

    Unique Quality: Breakfast was included in the price and we could choose either full Irish breakfast, which we tried once, and buffet type of breakfast. Irish breakfast was too heavy and very SALTY! I loved the fruit salad made of fresh fruit and grapefruit pieces and grapefruit juice. At the weekend there were also different cheeses. As a Finn I'd have preferred dark bread but I am used to not having it while I travel.

    Directions: Across the street from the bus station

    Not what I expected

    by

    The room was not up to much, no view whatsoever & because it was in a corner the room was quite dark. Ok we did have a view into the hostel next door so could check out the 3 hunky men :-)

    The twin beds were against the wall so only one side to get out of bed. I found it quite cramped & a bit basic in comparison to some other twins I have shared.

    On the plus side the room was clean although they did not replenish our shower gel etc

    Unique Quality: The breakfast was not that great quite salty

    On the saturday night the whole hotel shook with the vibration & plenty of noise from nearby nightclub which had just opened. The previous night I heard noise as well but nothing was confirmed by reception but my opinion is the staff were having a party.

  • A good place to stay

    by

    This was a very decent hotel. The rooms were plenty big enough and the beds were comfortable.
    The bathrom was spacious with the most powerful shower I have ever used.
    Breakfast was good with both continental or full Irish to choose from.
    It is on the O'Connell Street side of the River Liffey. It was about a 10 - 15 minute walk to O'Connell Street bridge.
    The Italian restaurant within the hotel is reasonably priced and the food is very tasty.

    Unique Quality: This hotel has a little garden at the back.
    It is used in the main by travellers staying at the Isaacs hostel but is very handy if the non smoking laws in Dublin are a problem to you.

    Directions: Opposite the bus station so therefore, very handy for getting to and from the airport.

Outstanding

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Hotel Isaacs is a little beauty of a hotel located right in the centre of Dublin city. Located a very short walk from the famous O'Connel Street and hence from there the rest of the city centre and its shops and nightlife! The hotel itself is very nice inside, well decorated and the room we stayed in was spacious enough and very clean. Staff were excellent, and the morning breakfast catered to all tastes. You would think this would alll be priced extortionatley, but we found when we booked through their website it was cheaper than the average Dublin Hotel. All in all, helped male the trip to Dublin Fantastic!

A curious mix of elegant and slipshod

by A TripAdvisor Member

Just got back from 3 nights at Beresford, our first time in Dublin so nothing to compare it to. Could hardly be more convenient for buslink from airport. We splurged on a suite--3rd floor facing street (some noise from traffic, not revellers) which worked out to 140 euros per night all-in. We saw the photos of what it looked like pre-refurbishment a couple of years ago, and what they've done is amazing. The place is really a treat for the eye, down to the tasteful wall art and furnishings. Nice selection of books in the hall to avail yourself of; space-age elevator with voice accompaniment ("...please select your floor..." etc.). Someone tried hard to create 4-star accoutrements.
But they haven't seen it through. Many little things seem off. Spacious bathroom and huge towels and robes but no shelf space at all and narrow shower with pre-controlled (not much) water pressure make the basics a chore. Lovely bed but spartan mattress and the hardest pillows we've ever laid our heads on. We had to make special requests (all rapidly seen to) for toilet paper, cookies, bottled water. Soap products and such appeared in different configurations daily. After our first morning's full breakfast, we received a note that the chef was "sick" and it would be cold buffet til further notice, for which they effortlessly deducted 21 euros from our bill. I guess they have some staffing problems, but, as with all such, that's for management to sort out. Young Micheala, almost perpetually at the front desk, was helpful and professional throughout our stay, but she seemed to be working harder than she needed to.
Beresford Hall has more pluses than minuses, especially connectivity to all public transportation ( DART station, for example, 2 blocks away if you wish to see the rest of Dublin County). But we'll try someplace else on our next Dublin visit.

You should stay there!

What a nice stay!

We wanted to have a short break in Dublin, and after extensive internet browsing we found this place, which from their web site looked to be a very nice place at a more than reasonable price for Dublin.

I have to admit that our expectations were perfectly met, very warm welcome, friendly staff, beautifully decorated rooms, very well located if you want to walk to the City centre.

We will certainly go backā€¦

A little gem!

by A TripAdvisor Member

Just like the hotel states - it is a little gem in the heart (sort of) of Dublin. We spent ages trying to find a good value hotel within easy walking distance of the city centre, and didn't particularly want to pay Temple Bar/Grafton Street prices, nor have the noise problems others seemed to have had. I'm pleased tho say, Isaacs was superb and was just what we were looking for. Gorgeous room - massive for the 2 of us (Number 204). There is a sight murmer of noise from the DART train which runs alongside the hotel, but it did not intrude and certainly stopped overnight. Clean, good looking exterior and interior. The Airlink bus stopped right outside which was a pleasant surprise and made our journey so much more convienient. Fabulous breakfast and very helpful staff. A 15 minute walk into the main shopping and eating areas. Overall, I can't fault the hotel or the service.

Lovely hotel, wonderful staff

by TripAdvisor Member 2crowns

We arrived at Beresford Hall just off the plane on a Monday morning in October. The 747 bus was not an option from the airport because we each had a suitcase and knapsack so we grabbed a cab. Even in the traffic it was only 30 Euro.

We were warmly greeted at Beresford Hall by the staff and our room was ready and we were able to get into it even though it was only 9 am! The room--stellar. We were put up in one of the Georgian Suites and it was spectacular! Huge windows, sumptious furnishings, huge fabulous bed (we were on our honeymoon). The concierge, Collette, was so sweet to us. There were fresh flowers in the room! It was an easy 10 minute walk to Grafton Street and Temple Bar. The new LUAS rail system makes little noise. All in all a lovely experience and the staff treated us like royalty-even calling about our rental car for us. We would definitely go back and stay again!

So Noisy

by A TripAdvisor Member

Don't stay here unless you can sleep through loud noises. The staff are great, the breakfast is fantastic, location ideal for city centre. Rooms are adequate (though I'd say it's nearer to a 2 than 3 star hotel). However, I have never stayed in such a noisy hotel. First night (Friday) we were on the 1st floor (had requested a quiet room before arriving, after reading a few reviews). Finally got to sleep at about 4 a.m. as noise from the bar was unbearable. I am not exaggerating. Then woken at 7 a.m. by clatter from kitchens below, and general noise in corridors/from people walking about in room above. We requested to be moved to quieter room (no questions asked - obviously a common request). She moved us to 2nd floor, facing courtyard instead of road (so not near their bar). Much better - no noise from bar. However, woken continually through night cos walls are so thin and floorboards so creaky. Like a herd of elephants stampeding past our room, and I think the staff (it can't all have been guests) were using the hall as thoroughfare as it went on for so long. To sum up: they redecorated this hotel fairly recently I believe, but they just papered over the cracks and didn't improve the thin old frame of the building. A real shame as otherwise would stay there again. But it really is impossible to get a good night's sleep. Take earplugs if you must stay there, and emphasize your request for a quiet room.

Hotel Isaacs, Store Street

by ladyodell

Hey, My best mate and I are coming to Dublin for the weekend tomorrow, we are staying at the Hotel Isaacs,Store Street, Dublin 1. Has anyone stayed there? Also I know a silly questions but whats the score with smoking in beer gardens?


RE: Hotel Isaacs, Store Street

by BertieB

I don't know the hotel, but I was in Dublin last week and most hotels/bars seemed to have a smoking area just outside. Quite annoying for us non-smokers who wanted to sit in the sun as well.

If you want a great restaurant serving Thai. Chinese, Japanese, Sushi ( with an Irish Patron) Try Yo Thai above Keeleys bar in Donnybrook.

Smoking in Beer Gardens

by deetoher

most of the beer gardens in Dublin have been created/further developed in the past year in order to cater for the smokers since the smoking ban came into force. In most cases you'll have to go inside to make and get your order at the bar, unless you are willing to wait a long time to be served!

I've never stayed in the hotel but a friend of mine works there and its been done up recently and all looks very new and modern. There is a beer garden too for smokers, with shelter and outdoor heaters.

Its not a great area, but its not too bad either. Mostly you'll be doing things that are away from this area and just returning to sleep. The restaurant in the hotel does very reasonable pizza and pasta, though my friend warned me that she couldn't vouch for the other things on the menu :-)

Also its located right across the road from the central Bus station called Bus Aras (pron. Awe-rus) which is handy because the 747 bus (nice name, huh? :-p) runs direct from the airport to here.

don't know much about hotel but its close to 1 of the main police (garda) stations and the national bus station. you're about a 5/10 minute walk from all the action, you're also best off crossing the liffey (main river) and hanging out on the southside of town.

There's no smoking in enclosed areas where people work i.e. pubs + restaurants. but most pubs have been creating beer gardens so you can smoke legally with your drink. Just remember it could *** rain at any second!
