I and my boyfriend were looking for a city break in Dublin and wanted to stay somewhere more unique and more like B&B. But what we found exceeded our all expectations! We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and had very good deal, was worth every penny!
The hotel is really in a great location. First, it was very easy to get a transfer from/to air port (we took aircoach) - the bus stop is about 2-3 minutes walk from the hotel. The distance to the centre is also good as we could walk there, though it took us about 30-40 minutes, but we were not in a hurry anyway :-) Taxi cost us 10-12 euros. It is located near the canal, so nice place for a romantic walk.
From the outside this hotel doesn't look as big as it really is. In the inside it looks nice, cozy and very luxurious but all done tasty (or depends on the taste). Our room had a big bed, which was very comfortable, a sauna (it works, but takes time to heat up) and a clean nice bathroom with bath where you could have a water massage. We had to ask one of the staff to show us how to use the heating control, as there is no air conditioning. However, as we were at the end of October it was ok and the room was nice and warm, but had to open the window for it to cool down for the night, so maybe air conditioner would help with that better. All in all the room had everything in it that a normal room should have. The views from our window were not the greatest (the inner yard, where you could park the car), but we chose the location not for it's views anyway.
All the staff was great and very helpful. We had bed and continental breakfast option, but one of the mornings we asked for warm breakfast and it was no trouble at all (had to pay extra, but we knew that). The food was really good quality and they always asked if we would like tea or coffee with biscuits even when we were in the lounge room, where you could enjoy sitting near fireplace or use PC with free interent. There is free wi-fi in the room as well.
All in all our experience with our city break has been excellent and this hotel had played a big role in it. We will definitely stay there again and already recommended it for our friends.
