“Unique!!”
Reviewed 20 June 2008

My partner and I stayed in the Le Mode Hotel January just gone and it was a great break mainly due to our hotel.The hotel was a gift stay to my partner and we stayed in a medium priced room (the atlantic).On arriving you are surprised to see how small the reception area is but the builting opens up from there.The staff were very helpful and we hadd no complaints there.They even delivered the next days weather to our room daily, for both Edinburgh and for Atlantic.

Our room was not the biggest room ever for the money paid in comparison to other hotel rooms but was a quality room for those who appreciate the details and for its location it was perfect.Our room was to the rear so it was free from any noise from outside or from within the building.The bed was a very impressive and comfortable feature.

The bathroom is beautifully tiled and the toilet is seperate to the shower and bath.To new couples dont be afraid of the see through glass its not that noticable.Our room was daily cleaned but the cleaning service never disturbed us in the morning and we very rarely seen them and never heard them.

The breakfast is a lovely buffet display but finishes by 10.30.We ate lunch in the milan bar twice and it was lovely but on the night we had dinner there, we were a little disappointed.Dinner in the Paris restaurant was delicious but be aware that the last order is taken by 9.00 so if you want a late dinner meantion it at reception.

The bars for service for drinks was very quick and enjoyabe atmosphere.Very trendy spot for us as we are aged 22 and 24.

The hotel is located on the equvilaent to Grafton Street to those who know Dublin and its only a five minute walk from the main street.The castle and all local bars and beautiful restaurants are all moments away.

Well worth the money spent and will most definitly be returning for a luxury break.

  • Liked — That the hotel was not just an ordinary boring hotel with pain rooms tht have nothing but a bed and toilet.
  • Disliked — The room could have been slightly bigger but dont let that put you off.

Stayed at Le Monde with one of my girlfriends recently and had an amazing stay. We checked into LA which was stylish and full of LA character. Absolutely loved the huge bathroom, plasma TVs, CD player and the bed was by far the comfiest bed I have ever slept in.

All the trendy shops are right on Le Mondes door step so it would be rude to not spend the day shopping. After a hard days shopping we returned to our suite to get ready for a girly night out. We had a few drinks in the suite from the mini bar before heading down to have dinner in Vienna. Dinner was delicious and the cocktails went down a treat.

After dinner we went down to the club for a few more drinks and to check out the local talent. We were suitably impressed, this is clearly where all the beautiful people go.

Le Monde has so much to offer and we are already planning a return visit. The staff were so friendly and helpful and they really made us feel welcome.

Le Monde would be great for any occassion,however I think the LA suite is a must for a girls night out.

Stayed 2 nights from 24/4/2008.
Do NOT stay at this hotel if you like a quiet life. Pre dinner drink at 7-30pm was incredible. Met with a wall of sound, knowhere to sit, tables reserved for non residents - absolute bedlam. Food is pub fare.Awoken at 3am by a drunk who set general alarm off.
Great hotel if you like to party hard.

Having stayed in many a hotel on my travels, some have been terrible and some outstanding! This little gem certainly falls into the latter.
We booked and stayed at Le Monde in early March on recomendation and were certainly glad of it. After checking in to the helpful cheery receptionist and freshening up in our room we visited the stunning Vienna bar for a few early evening drinks, moving on to the Paris cocktail bar for dinner(an excellent menu) we both thouroughly enjoyed this. (especially the Duck Confit it was delightful) service was brilliant, swift and proffesional.
We were very kindly taken down to the club in their lift by a very helpful and kind young gentleman(think he was the duty manager) what a great place!! we felt like VIP's. obviously the in place to be in George st at the moment. Being of some 'middle age' we retired to our room Tokyo before the club closed, you could still hear a little noise outside but what would you expect staying in a lively City Centre Hotel.
The room was fabulous with lots of little quirky things going on. a very stylish quality themed room which oozes luxury and relaxation - the huge bathroom is lovely.

Overall a wonderful experience which will be repeated, well done Le Monde.

Being a regular at Le Monde and Shanghai I thought it time to try the hotel. Staying in the hotel really was a night of luxury. The room we stayed in was gorgeous, with an amazingly comfy bed and the best shower I have ever been in! The room had several tv's and we took advantage of the dvd's themed to the room. We had dinner in the restaurant, Vienna, cocktails in Paris, and went to the nightclub, Shanghai for an awesome night, all in the same building! It was great at the end of the night to simply jump in the lift from the nightclub (after getting VIP access with our welcome package to the hotel) straight up to our hotel room, with chocolates on our pillows and a little jug of milk in the fridge for a cup of tea! We were able to have a late check out so we had time to wash away a fuzzy head in the huge shower filled with Molton Brown products, lovely!

Stayed March 2008

An overpriced hotel pretending to be something it's not.
Unclean room with dated plasma tv that didn't recieve channels/radio/alarm or info. A minibar with half consumed items, a toilet that didn;t flush, lights that didn't work , dust everywhere and staff that just didn't care.
As for the restaurant 1hr wait for the starter then a further hour for the main meal which arrived cold. The head waiter ! was more intrested in chatting up the young female groups than serving guests. Not bad for a £320 '1' night romance package!!!!
You can get to sleep about 4am after the music and partygoers disperse from the 18-20 year olds disco in the basement.
Never again, book The George Hotel or The Sheraton or Even the Hilton for a far superior, cleaner hotel and where there guests are actually cared for , Unlike this place.

  • Liked — Nothing except location
  • Disliked — Everything from room to the staff and most of all the rip off price

As my husband and I don't get away very often with having two young kids, we decided to splash out for one night in this hotel. Having stayed in Tigerlily before, we thought that this hotel would be of the same standard. How I wish I had taken on board some of the comments left about this place! We stayed in LA, one of the top rooms. It was a nice room, very modern and clean. We noticed the remote for the bathroom tv was missing so reported it on our way out to do some shopping. We came back to find there was still no remote. We told them again while we went to get our free drink, which thankfully we weren't in a hurry for as it took forever to get served. Back to the room to discover no remote again, so we went back down thinking third time lucky but were told the tv was broken and wouldn't be fixed for a few days. Paying £295 for a room with the main feature being the bath and tv we were really not happy. We also discovered the coffee machine was broken, and as for the noise levels, we thought we were actually sleeping in the bar area until 3 am. All they offered us was £20 off the room rate, and in the morning the woman couldn't have been any more unfriendly if she tried. No conversation whatsoever, we just paid the bill and left without a goodbye. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone after the service we received. Tigerlily is much much nicer!
