I stayed here for one night on business recently. The warmth and friendliness from the reception staff was excellent and I was able to checking and use my room mid morning, which was surprisingly welcome news. The room was spotless, and had a large comfy bed. Similarly, the bathroom was well appointed, and was clean.
My only gripe was that for some reason, the digital TV channels were not working, so I only had access to RTE1 and 2. Not a big issue as I was not expecting to be watching much TV.
The hot breakfast in the morning was ok but not great although there is plenty of choice. The sausages looked particularly cheap and unappealing as did the scrambled egg and the mushrooms. My colleague ordered poached egg on toast on the basis that it would at least be freshly prepared.
Overall I'd say this was a good hotel to stay in for a short break in Dublin and is very central. Might be a little noisy outside with city revellers though, so be aware.
One last comment. The stairwell from reception up to the first floor smelt a bit stale. Use the lift.

- The hotel comprises of two magnificently restored Georgian buildings, with a heritage of great historical and cultural importance to Ireland.

Entering through the tasteful reception area, guests will be struck by the stunning glass atrium, filling the lobby with natural light and overlooking the idyllic Stephen’s Green park. The stylish interior design throughout the hotel, with wood panelling and soft leather furnishings sitting alongside Georgian stucco ceilings and elegant fireplaces, beautifully showcases the fusion of old and new. George Fitzmaurice is honoured in the hotel through our bar and restaurant, which are named after two of his plays. The ‘Magic Glasses’ Bar is an opulent, comfortable bar where local businesspeople and visitors alike regularly meet over a coffee or drink, while the ‘Pie Dish’ Bistro, set in the bright atrium and the inner rooms of the Georgian houses, serves the finest in contemporary Irish and international cuisine. Located on the first floor, the Georgian library has a charming old-world feel, where you can sit in 19th century surrounds, featuring open fireplaces and chandeliers – an ideal way to unwind over a pre-dinner drink.
