I had reason recently to have urgent hospital surgery for my teenage daughter in the centre of Dublin and needed accommodation which was near enough to allow for emergency access to the hospital. The Best Western Skylon had been recommended and turned out to be absolutely perfect. Everything, from the kindness and compassion of the staff when booking to the reception, food, accommodation itself and even the banter in the lively bar helped to alleviate a very stressful situation and make a diffic...

We are never disappointed with the room or the service when we stay at the Dublin Skylon Hotel. The rooms are very comfortable with all the amenities needed for a great stay. The hotel's breakfast has a wide array of choices at a very affordable price. The hotel also has a great bar with an excellent bar staff and great food for lunch and dinner. The front desk staff and management are also very helpful and listen to your needs.

This was the fourth time that I've stayed here on business. The hotel is a little unprepossessing from the outside, but this belies a very friendly and relaxed internal ambience. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful, and the rooms have been well-presented. Breakfasts are good and the bar meals are fine. I understand that it's a short bus or taxi ride into the centre. It's a hotel well worth considering for travellers on a budget.

Stayed at the Hotel for 5 night, rooms are very clean and spacious, lots of natural light and bathrooms are very tidy. Staff are extremely friendly and also very Helpful. The food in the restaurant is also very good if you decide to stay in. Wi-fi can play up a bit but while on holiday i doubt you'll be needing it. Will surely visit again in the near future.

My wife and I stayed here recently to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We wanted to do some touristy things in Dublin and found the Skylon the perfect location. It's just outside the city centre but is only a short hop in a bus or a taxi. It's also only 10 mins from Dublin port and Dublin airport. The surrounding area has plenty of good quality restaurants and and pubs if you don't want to eat in the hotel. There is parking on site that we weren't charged for. Check in was quick and we were g... Read more

Great location close to stadium. Staff were helpful and we were able to drop bags and leave them in storage free of charge. Also late check out at 13:30 was free. Room was clean and bright. Bed and shower both great. Bit far out from city centre but 10euor taxi takes you in and it's perfect walking distance to croke park. For staying there for a a concert in the stadium it couldn't be faulted

Room was clean and spacious, TV was not tuned in properly and remote did not respond, but did not cause too much disruption. Had lunch in the bar which was very good and the staff were very helpful throughout. Would recommend for any short stay also very handy for the city (on bus route)

You can see the age on the inside, but that's not necessarily bad. While aging, it still maintains an old world upper class presence. Other than a lack of soundproofing, I have no complaints. The attached restaurant is very nice as well, but the prices are rather high for what you get. You can go across the road to the Ivy House and get a very good meal for a better price. The staff were also very courteous and professional. Again, aside from soundproofing, this hotel lacks little.

Stayed here end of may for a hen party 3 rooms with 8 of us hens . Fantastic, warm friendly hotel with great staff who would do anything for you. Only downside it cost a bit in a taxi roughly ?20 to Dublin and ?16 to Airport. Which all added up breakfast was lovely but I don't think it was worth ?12 and the rooms are ridiculously hot we was in room 127 and it was so warm and we couldn't open window as over kitchen so stunk of fat all the time! Thank you for a great stay.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. On a 2 week trip around England, Ireland, and Scotland, this hotel provided the largest rooms and most knowledgeable front desk staff out of the 6 different hotels we stayed at during our trip. This hotel is located just outside the downtown core so is a little more reasonably priced. We took the city bus in to the main downtown area which was easy and affordable. Downtown is also within walking distance, but you will definitely need your walking shoes! We a... Read more

Another great stay. Was in a newly refurbished room with fantastically comfy bed that I did not want to leave. Love the Tassimo coffee machine though maybe they could provide a couple more coffee pods. Again all staff unfailingly polite, an absolute asset to the hotel. Never had a bad stay here, despite all my stays are for hospital appointments it makes things a little easier to have somewhere nice to retreat to.

Hotel near the bus station (travel time to Dublin Centre is approximately 10-15 minutes), some supermarkets and a Pub. Helpful and friendly staff. Good room service. Overall, it's a pretty nice resort. PS: "Simon is the best".

The location isn't ideal, it's a far walk to Dublin City center, although it is on a bus line. There are a handful of restaurants to walk to, and a small Tesco. The lobby, restaurant and bars are spacious and relatively updated. The servers in these areas were friendly and helpful, as were the housekeeping staff. That's about it as far as good points. Overall we didn't really enjoy this hotel for the following reasons: It is overpriced. The week before we stayed in a castle w/full Irish brea... Read more

We stayed here Saturday to today (Monday) - party of 4 adults. Initial thoughts of the hotel were that it was clean and fairly modern. The bedrooms were very clean but small and the bathrooms, again clean but very small. I found the most disappointing part of our stay was the customer service as it was of a pretty poor standard - this was the case at reception, breakfast and in the bar area. We ate in the bar both nights and Saturday night was particularly poor - we were kept waiting for our or... Read more

Only ten minutes by taxi into the centre of Dublin, great food, comfortable beds but mostly I remember the people who worked at the Skylon professional, nothing was a bother - the most helpful people on the planet! My Dad was in hospital and they arranged for me to stay on past my booking, helped liase laundry and importantly always had a cheery smile and asked how my Dad was. A very personable place to stay, thank you everyone I think you are AMAZING!

Wouldn't stay again the lobby area at the front is very grubby. Car parking spaces is an issue. Very poor wifi my wifi had to turn on her hotspot to connect to the laptop which cost extra money, this shouldn't happen as we had paid for a service.

We loved this hotel. It is located on a main road going into the city center. There is a free parking lot in the front. When we checked in a friendly young man named Joseph offered us a glass of wine or water. The check in process was easy. Our room was very modern and decorated in purple. The bed was comfortable. From our window, we could see the Wicklow Mountains over the city of Dublin. Beautiful! The in room Internet did not work too well. There is a restaurant in the hotel, but it ... Read more

Stayed here with 2 friends while attending a concert close by. Whilst checking in we could help ourselves to a glass of prosecco and when checking out there was fresh water with bits of fruit in it. Never seen that before and thought it was a lovely added touch. Triple room was large enough to sleep four as it had a double and 2 single beds. Reception staff and a guy who may have been the manager were friendly.

We stayed here the night before an early flight from Dublin airport. We were in a family room which had a double bed and two single beds either side which suits us (2ad & 2ch). The beds were really soft and comfortable (what make are they, would love one for home). We didn't take breakfast as we were away from 5am but did have dinner which was nice and not too expensive although service could have been better. The staff were slow to attend to us. Would definitely stay again.

The rooms were very nice and clean. The room shared by my friend and I had two twin beds. The beds and pillows were clean and comfortable, but the blanket is in sort of a sheet "pocket" so it's not easy to remove the blanket if you're hot. It was unusually warm in Dublin when we were there, even at night. The ability to easily remove the blanket would be helpful. My friend was able to do it eventually by pulling the whole thing out from the bottom of the bed and then pulling the blanket out. Not... Read more

Excellent service!!!! We enjoyed a clean comfortable room with a Nespresso machine. All members of the hotel staff were caring, responsive, super nice, and professional in every way! There isn't street appeal to the facade of the place and the lobby could use a bit of updating, otherwise we stepped inside to find quality and comfort. Then, we had breakfast, which we found to be a huge surprise--we are fussy about food and found lots of healthy choices--definitely worth the $12 EU! We recomm... Read more

Lovely comfortable hotel, very accommodating staff. Good restaurant and late night bar. It is a good 45 min walk into Dublin, 10mins taxi ?15 each way or bus. Take slot of cash as Dublin is expensive- booked the Guinness tour tickets through trip advisor - the tour is so worth it!

The room was comfortable and staff were friendly and helpful. The location is great - within 10 minutes of the airport but also easy bus ride into center of town. Free parking - we chose it so we could get a rental car at the airport but not need have to drive it while we were in Dublin. They do not have air conditioning - which is rarely an issue but there was one hot day while we stayed - they provided a fan and with the window wide open we were comfortable for sleeping.
