Stayed at the Albany for a night whilst working in Dublin. Was somewhat stunned by the experience. Reviews read well and certainly the guesthouse is nicely decorated etc. However, the service could not have been more unwelcoming and remote. No attempt made to assist me with luggage (of which I had quite a lot) up to a top floor room some four flights up. I was pouring with sweat by the time I got to the top (despite being pretty fit!). When I asked if an iron could be delivered to my room I was told that there was no room service and that I'd have to lug the board and iron up the four flights of stairs again!! On checkout, no conversation whatsoever and no enquiry as to whether my stay had been ok. Pretty poor reflection of Irish hospitality I have to say. I hope this isn't the first impressions foreign visitors get of an Irish welcome. It reminded me of the worst excesses of the Celtic tiger years when many felt they didn't need to make any effort whatsoever.
Needless to say, whole experience not helped in any way by the racket on the street until the small hours (3am+ by the time I got my first bit of sleep).
Proceed with caution if you are considering staying!
