My wife and I are fairly well travelled and usually are okay with a 3 star hotel, especially when we don't plan on spending much time in the room. For example, we always choose the cheap inside cabin when we do cruises. In our opinion, this hotel is a 2 star motel. We were given a "renovated" room, and I can't imagine what a non-renovated room would be like. Our tour company that booked us told us it wasn't worth upgrading to a better hotel, because they said the Regency was a good place to stay. We firmly disagree with their opinion. Here's why...
The front desk was not cordial; the room smelled like smoke; the hallways are narrow, dark and looked dingy; the furniture was stained and scratched; no air control so the room was stuffy and hot; the toiletries were sad; the bed hard and uncomfortable with low quality beddings; no safe; we saw an ant by the coffee fixings; my wife thought she had seen the moving shadow of a mouse one morning; the hotel IS a drive away from the city action; the toilet had stains on the outside upon check-in, let's leave it at that; and the stairway exit door didn't close entirely leaving one to feel unsafe, as anyone could have strolled on in and up to the rooms. I can go on about how the carpet didn't match up to the wall and how the walls are thin, but do you get the point by now?
Do yourself a huge favor and pay extra for a more proper hotel in the city itself. It will be well worth it. I suggest the Hilton Conrad near St. Steven Green. We had a very nice stay there and for a special Priceline rate of $160 USD, it was well worth it.
