Not much to the hotel itself. Boutique hotel touches, extremely well located. May be a little pricey for what it offers, but definitely cuts it for being central enough, and yet removed from the immediate surroundings. Recommended for short dash stays and weekendering

Nestled in a quite cul de sac, just off Lavelle Road, it is unknown, still it is discovered.
