We stayed here with our 3 year old and my 75 year old mother-in-law. We booked a 2 bedroom penthouse suite, but were upgraded to the huge, sunny and comfortable 3 bedroom penthouse suite because the guests in the 2 bedroom suite decided to extend their stay. I can honestly say that we considered doing the same after our lovely stay here. Make no mistake this is an efficiency apartment not a full service hotel. There is no elevator, so be prepared to walk up 3 flights of stairs if you stay in suites 9 - 12. This was fine for my husband, daughter and I but my mother-in-law came to dread the stairs toward the end of our stay
We found the all female staff extremely helpful in pointing us into the right direction for good restaurants, pubs and shopping. (I recommend Marks and Spenser Food Hall for breakfast items and wine. ) When we checked in, there was already coffee, tea and cereal in the apartment. We asked for extra towels and got them within 15 minutes! The beds were good not fabulous, but comfortable after a long day sightseeing. The showers were great once you turned on the booster for high pressure and we spiked the heat a little as Dublin in July is pretty chilly by New York standards. Housekeeping cleans every third day, unless you make other arrangements, but we happily made our own beds.
The apartments are centrally located in a very safe part of town I saw as equivalent to New York's Upper Eastside. Downstairs (though not affiliated with the Suites) is the well regarded restaurant, One Pico, which had a delicious Sunday Lunch pre fixe. It is a 5 - 10 minute walk to St. Stephen's Green, Trinity College, Temple Bar and Merrion Park. Taxis abound and there is parking right off the lobby.
We were given a discount voucher for 12% off room rates good through next year and given our very pleasant experience, we will use it.
