there was nothing 4 star about this place. you can hear someone fart two rooms down so give up any type of privacy. the night manager is rude and you would think he works for the police and not you the paying customer. i stayed from march 9th to the 13th and i would never ever again. i would rather stay in a hostile

Hi Arnolc, Thank you for you review. That is the best about our hotel. It is in between the city centre and the airport.

5 out of 5
This is a great hotel. Rooms were comfortable, beds were comfortable, breakfast was HUGE, and the bar was great. The only thing I would have liked was a little more control over the temperature in the room. Oh, and a shuttle to the airport.

The hotel was conveniently located between city center and the Airport, It was about a 40 minute walk to the city center or 10 minute or so taxi ride. The rooms were clean. The staff was friendly. There was a delay with checking in however the hotel offered me a complimentary breakfast for my wait. Overall, I enjoyed my stay there and would highly recommend Skylon hotel.

The staff was exceptional and incredibly accommodating. The first room was not great and they moved us to a much better room, which made our stay so much more pleasant. Every staff person we encountered was fantastic - friendly, helpful and lovely.

This is a great property that's a bit outside the city center but allows you access to all of Dublin with a short cab ride. The restaurant/bar was great and a very cool vibe. Rooms we very clean and comfortable.

Such a nice hotel! We had stayed at another hotel prior for 7 days and you could not compare the two. This hotel had a beautiful/great sized bathroom with a shower /tub combination, a huge comfortable bed, plus two twin beds in the room... and everything was perfect. I so wish we had just stayed here the whole trip!! It would have made our trip to Ireland so much better. Great hotel and restaurant, great price for the room! Book a room here, you won't regret it.
