Sufficiently Pleasant

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

While the Belvedere Hotel may not be as smooth as the vodka of the same name, it is sufficient hotel in a fair location. The Belvedere Hotel is a former Comfort Inn that does not appear to have been overhauled, but simply changed its name. This can give an indication of the level of quality. The room was adequate with the basic needs of a traveler: comfortable (but not plush) bed, a safe, phone, lighting, television (wall mounted), and sizable bathroom with shower, tub, toilet, large mirror, sink, and standard toiletries. The room and bathroom were kept clean, except for on top of the very tall armoire I found trash including a liquor bottle (I was curious & had to stand on a chair to see it). The carpet did show a little age and the linens could use an update, but they were clean and unstained. I didn't particulary like the fact that I had to go to retrieve a key from the desk and go to a separate room to use (or obtain) an iron.

The staff was pleasant and helpful. The lobby was minimalistic, but provided internet, sofas, newspapers. The elevator was a bit small, but can be expected in a lot of buildings in Europe. There is an attached bar that does comedy and dancing on some nights (I did not go in the bar), as well as an on-site restaurant.

I must say that some of the room photos on the website did not reflect what I saw, so don't let it mislead you into thinking it is fancier than it is (although some of those rooms may be available).

Directions: at the top of Parnell Square, to the East

I chose this site from Booking.com because of its location and low price. Its a pretty standard 3* hotel although the rooms seem larger than normal. We arrived at 9am due to early flights and we were able to have a room immediately rather than at 2pm, although there are left-luggage facilities here.

There is a lap-dancing club opposite and the lack of double glazing meant the room was a little noisy and the traffic noise loud. This wasn't enough to bother us really and just let in a little of the atmosphere of Dublin.

However on our penultimate day we had a blocked toilet. It was reported that morning but on out return at 8pm that evening nothing had been done and there were no other rooms available. We put up with using the lobby toilets as it was our last night there but on booking out revealed our displeasure!

We recieved a really good apology, and our final nights stay was not charged for which made a significant discount overall on our stay. Some staff's English was not so good, but the only Irish lady we dealt with on mornings couldn't have been more helpful and despite our problem I would recommend this hotel.

Now that the Euro and Stirling are at parity (1:1), the breakfast is not such great value and a 3 minute walk down O'Connell Street will have you pass at least 5 bars that serve a better and cheaper breakfast.

Unique Quality: Excellent location 50m off Parnell Square and a two minute walk from the top of O'Connell Street. Purnell Square (one minute away) has many busses that will take you into the city center if you can't take the 15 minute walk.

Directions: One minute off Parnell Square

Two bars- no sleeping

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 30, 2008

Even though we were on the fourth floor the techno music from the Belvedere bar on the ground floor and the bar fights across the street at Barrys pub kept us up most the night.
The phone in our room wouldn't accept our calling card, so the clerk told us to use the 800 number listed on the phone in our room. Our 15 minute phone call cost $76 . I wouldn't recommend this place- ever... Definitely no comfort in the Comfort Inn.

Directions: Up Oconnell, right on Parnell

We stayed on the fourth floor yet we heard the techno music from the bar downstairs. Barrys bar and patrons across the street was just as loud. We used the 800 number recommended on the hotel phone and were charged $76 for a 15 minute phone call. I would not recommend this hotel.

Comfortable and (fairly) convenient

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

Found the hotel only after a search of Parnell Square, on the spur road up on Granby Row. The Hotel is clearly very new and gleaming; our room was quite generous in size, with good size bathroom and air conditioning. Flat screen TV and tea/coffee facilities, even an ironing board!
Really very good - we took breakfast a couple of times. Not great value @ 9E but probably just about worth it for sheer in-house convenience. Scrambled egg, bacon & snads on the hot side but only packaged cheese, no cold meats to accompany the nice bread rolls. Croissants as well. Pleasant service throughout.
Room was quiet, despite looking out onto a fairly busy road.
It is located a fair walk from the main shopping and pub attractions, which are mainly South of the River but nowhere is too far away in this city and we accepted the walk as an opportunity to exercise and dissipate the effects of boozing and eating!

Directions: We took Airlink bus No. 747 to O'Connell Street but found a posted stop on Parnell Square, to easily catch bus back to Airport.

Decent low cost hotel in the heart of Dublin

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

This brand new Comfort Inn, located right in the heart of Dublin, is surprisingly good for the price. Don't expect snazzy fittings or "olde worlde" Irish charm, though. It's basic, and the rooms are fairly small, but it is very clean and the staff are friendly. As a base for exploring Dublin, it's absolutely fine.

One thing I should point out is that it's in a fairly busy thoroughfare and overlooks a strip club, so it may not be the place to stay if you're visiting at the weekend and want a quiet night's sleep! If you're in Dublin for the party atmosphere, or if you're staying there through the week, it's perfect.

Unique Quality: Good value, and excellent location for tourists - it's just a stone's throw from O'Connell Street.

Directions: From top of O'Connell St, go north to top of Parnell St, turn right into Gt Denmark St. Hotel is 100yds on right.

Large, nice rooms. Very friendly staff and they were quick to recognize me. Breakfast was OK. Single glazing windows, which was a bit of a downside, as the street was somehow noisy. Could de with double-glazing to limit the noise.

Directions: Walking distance to center

Cheap and Central Dublin Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

We stayed for one night in Dublin at the Comfort Inn Dublin Parnell Square.

I was concerned before we got there, as this place was so much cheaper than every other place I had read about in Dublin.

We were very pleasantly surprised!! It was in a central location, about a 10 minute walk to Temple Bar. The room was large and had all mod cons and a spacious bathroom.

Unique Quality: Central and cheap and clean. Perfect.

Directions: Across the Road from Parnell Square, just off O'Connell Street

Dublins Noisiest Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 12, 2004

Stayed at the Comfort Inn from 9 Feb - 12 Feb 04 on a room only basis in a Double Rm En Suite on 3rd Floor. I booked this through www.gulliver.ie for 24.50 euros per person per night, much cheaper than your website recommends. The facilities were fine apart from one major problem the amount of noise at night coming from inside and outside the hotel. Every time traffic passed by it seemed like it was driving through the actual room you could hear it so clearly. Inside the hotel you could always hear the sound of doors slamming as the doors automatically closed behind you making lots of noise. We never had breakfast in the hotel (went to Bewleys in O'Connell St. instead - fantastic cooked breakfast!) or any other meals or ventured into the adjacent bar area so no comment on the food or drink. The hotel was very clean and tidy having been newly renovated and was cleaned every day so we were satiisfied with the look and how comfortable the hotel was. If we could have got a decent nights sleep it would have scored more highly. Special mention must go to the Dragon Lady who served us at reception called Louise whose face may have cracked if she smiled. The most unfriendly, unhelpful and abrupt receptionist I've met and I've travelled all over Europe. Thanks for making my holiday so enjoyable Louise - Cheers!!. All the other members of staff were fine including the young irish girl who booked us out and the young spanish guy I chatted to in spanish. I'd call it the Not So Comfortable Inn due only to the lack of sound proofing.

Unique Quality: The location of the hotel was ideal if using public transport - Dublin Buses. We caught the 747 from the airport after purchasing a 3 day rambler bus ticket to O'Connell St. just down the hill from the Comfort Inn. If you buy the rambler ticket you can catch the no. 46A right outside the hotel into the city centre and back again. Other buses such as the 10,11, 19/19A, 38 and many more buses will drop you off at Parnell square just opposite the hotel. If you're into the seedier side of Dublin there was a Lap Dancing club facing the hotel from the other side of the street but I wasn't allowed by my girlfriend to have my lap danced upon - boo hiss!.

Directions: The hotel is situated just off Parnell Square to the North of the city. Follow O'Connell St. away from the city centre until you get to the Parnell Monument then it's the second street on the right.
