I read all the reviews from Russell court and because I'm a young 25 year old that works at a nightclub myself, I knew the noise wouldn't bother me or my older brother, so I decided to book anyways. The location is good, but here are my issues. I was asked to pay a 50€ deposit at check in that was not mentioned when booking online. My room was for one person, I had booked one double bed. I was given a room with 2 massive double beds. The room was pretty in an old kind of way at first, but then I realized my window was smashed from the outside and that the window itself did not lock. Also there was a huge crack running down the ceiling and my tv did not work at all. My brother and his girlfriend ended up sleeping in the room with me instead of their own because I was on the first floor and I was afraid some drunk person might climb through the unlocked window. The hair dryer that is advertised as being in the room is old and outdated. It takes a girl about 45 minutes to an hour to dry their hair using this dryer.. Bring your own!!!! As well, in the evenings if you have been out shopping and you come back to your hotel, there is access to the nightclub through the hotel so the many security guards bark at you and make you feel like a criminal if you try to enter the hotel without them first checking a list with your room number. The hotel advertises many different areas, a beer garden, a nightclub, etc. The reality is, it all just mashes into one... There is no relaxing beer garden, it's all a nightclub, with loud pounding music. The areas are poorly defined... There was a band doing a cover of kings of Leon in one room, but it was being ruined by the pounding club music in the room next door. It ends up just being an overcrowded pool of pointless noise. Not to mention that it's a free for all. We were sitting at a table in the beer garden the first night and a group of guys came over and sat down all around us, basically pushing us out of the way. They started acting rudely... They grabbed the ash tray away from us while we were smoking and started putting their dirty feet up on the table.. Shaking the table and laughing. We got up to walk away.. And when we went to put out our cigarettes in the ashtray before we walked away... One of the guys shoved his foot right up in my sister in laws face as she bent down! The security did nothing!!! Letting people act like pigs...so I took matters into my own hands and dumped beer into their laps and left the club. We never went back. We spent the next days in temple bar area, or at one of the clubs further down the street. This hotel is obviously for young people... But it could use a lot of cosmetic updating, better organization and the security at night need to learn how to treat the guests nicely when they are returning to the hotel. They also need to learn to notice when girls at the club are being harassed and deal with it appropriately. I wouldn't come back to this hotel....
