Stayed 3 nights here. 18 minutes away by air coach with air coach terminal outside hotel. Location is a bit far from city centre but can take LUAS from the point station to Abbey street station in 10 minutes and you are in the heart of dublin near o'cornell street, temple bar area and the river. The hotel is in an old industrial area that is undergoing redevelopment until the Irish economy collapsed leaving abandoned buildings and empty offices, so the area looks depressing. However, security is good and if you take the LUAS, you are only 50metres walk to the hotel entrance.
The rooms are very big for European hotel rooms and are well glazed unlike the old hotels in dublin centre and gave she-conditioning - something missing in most dublin hotels. The shower and toilets are good with excellent plumbing and plenty of hot water. Beds are comfortable and there is good attentive service from the hotel staff. If you are raking day tours outside of Dublin, you just take the LUAS to abbey station and walk 5 minutes to Gresham hotel, near the savoy theatre as this us the last pick up point for most tour groups. Thus enables you to gave a. Extra 20 minute sleep before taking your day tours. Hence good location to station yourself.
The only shortcoming was that the air conditioning was not that cool. Secondly, the location may be a bit depressing . Other than that , an excellent 4 star hotel at 80% the price of other dublin 4 star hotels in the town centre that us noisy, lacks air con and have lousy plumbing.
