I stayed here just one night after returning from Edinburgh and with just one night stay in Dublin before returning home. Note that there are a set of stairs as you enter before you get up to the reception area. I did write them before my trip asking for a lower floor room and they did oblige. The staff were courteous, and check in process is very easy. The rooms were very clean but it is an older hotel and extremely dated. There were plenty of fresh towels and a fully stocked coffee/tea area with kettle. Room lighting was very adequate. You have to ask for the remote at reception, as they do not leave it in room. There are really great blackout curtains but here is where my concerns come up: ***Immediately upon entering the room, I noticed an electric heater sitting there on the floor. I am very surprised that this would even be allowed and am puzzled that this would not be a great fire code violation. I know not to leave it on at night or unattended, and I did have to turn it on, as it was a very windy, cold, and rainy day in Dublin and the small wall heater(that is up against the curtains) was not adequate. I worry that other guests may leave this on at night. Also, although the blackout curtains are very thick, there was such a huge huge light that shown through into my room from the hallway into the door of the room! What kind of protection would one have against a fire in the corridor if the smoke and flames could seep quickly through that door? It was as though the door was far too small for the frame bring all kinds of light into the room. I mean, the room was bright and I could see objects in my room at night from all the light coming through the door to the room. Not very safe. This doesn't have a cozy feel and I actually left early the next morning because it was not the kind of room that one could feel relaxed in. There is a Jimmy Chung's next door and the odors coming through into the hallways made you want to plug your nose until you got to your room; rather nauseating really. Corridors are very very narrow. All and all, if you just need a place to hang your head for one night, it is fine but not a place I would choose to lounge about in. Bed was comfortable.
