Neat and quaint hotel. Rooms are very spacious and comfy. Food's good and like many reviewers remarked, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Their wi-fi arrangement is easy and although it misbehaves on my iPhone sometime, it is well preferred to hoops some hotels make you jump trough, like requesting a new code every 24 hours and going trough extensive registration and logging in process.
The hotel gives off a relaxed and well-looked after impression. There is a Tesco across the road and a taxi rank. It's a quiet location, close to city centre and in Rathmines area which is full of lovely restaurants, cafes and shops.
One of the things I was not too happy with as a matter of personal preference (apart from the fact that on some floors smoking and non-smoking rooms are dangerously close to each other and some rooms have noise-leaking doors in the walls leading to adjacent rooms with people who watch TV loudly or till late) is that the hotel does not have a huge amount of light. Whether it's a design feature or a bug I do not know but sitting in the room working I found it quite dark at times and even reading light by the bed does not seem too bright. The breakfast area on a grey October morning looks patchy - there are some places I would not sit to read unless there is a back-lit screen on my device.
Having said all that, it's a pleasant welcoming place, very well located for me and, also, I really like their paintings ;) And floor heating! That's just marvelous.
