Best Urban Hotels 2015
“Music is the common thread at This centrally located hotel:
rooms, featuring themed names like Hi-Fi, Mod Pod and Punk Bunks, are filled with Rega turntables, vinyl and books from Tower Records Dublin, and Marshall amps and speakers. And beyond the bedroom are a handful of lively venues, each adept and pulling in local crowds; the ground floor Dean Bar offers breakfast, rotisserie, cocktails and live DJs, and there’s also a rooftop bar and Sophie’s restaurant, where an international menu is served up with panoramic views of Dublin.”
“The Edgy (…) Dean Hotel”
“The city’s newest hotel is the edgy 52-room Dean Hotel, wihch features a rooftop restaurant with 360-degree views of the city. Hipster touches include in-room turntables and vinyl, and skateboards for guests. The Blueroom accommodates 120 for a reception and 50 for a meeting.”
“at the weekend The Dean is certainly up for a party. Harcourt Street, on which it sits, is club central, and the hotel’s glass-enclosed rooftop bar-restaurant, Sophie’s – views stretch to the Wicklow Mountains .”
“Dublin gets its coolest new hangout and hotel in one.”
“The lobby vibe is bang-on: at one end a bar serves flat whites and cocktails; at the other, iMacs glow at reception beneath a Tracy Emin neon sign reading ‘I Fell in Love Here’. Bikes lean against the stairs, and maps are dished out marked with drinking dens and cutting-edge design stores. Rooms are no less Instagram-able, with turntables and stacks of vinyl, mini orange Smeg fridges, wooden ‘munchies’ trays (everything from O’Donnells crisps to Berocca) and works from up-and-coming Irish artists.”
“New wave Irish pop art colored the walls, cult German taschen books lay tiered on the coffee table, while Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” crackled from the vinyl player. At first glance, this could have been a hotel suite in Kreuzberg, Berlin, or Shoreditch, London, but instead I had found myself amid the postcard urban backdrop of downtown Georgian Dublin. I’d just arrived at The Dean; the newest concept hotel to open its doors in Ireland — and with 2015 marking the year of Irish design, it would be my base to experience this capital en trende.”

We didn’t want to leave! Moments from Stephen’s Green, Grafton Street and the major shopping districts of the city centre … Dublin at your doorstep and this room definitely tempts you to throw away all plans and hole up in here for as long as possible. Hi-Fi room, a light-filled, higher floor bedroom with dual-aspect looking out over Dublin rooftops and luminated by the cloudy blue sky. The bathroom offsets the trendy mix of modern and retro as it’s industrial in style – all monochrome tiling, rain showers and tubular vanity lighting. It’s spacious, well-lit and comes with a shower that you could easily stand an hour in being completely lost. In short, it’s bathroom perfection!
