I stayed in this hotel on Wednesday night, 26/06/2013. It was a last minute trip to Dublin for a funeral so I did not have time to check out other hotels close to Glasnevin Cemetery. According to the internet site I booked through, this hotel had the basic facilities I would require for one night's stay. The following list of facilities are said to be available, but I found that not to be the case.
24-hour front desk
Cable TV service
Check-in time starts at (1 PM)
Check-out time is (11 AM)
Complimentary newspapers in lobby
Fireplace in lobby
Iron/ironing board (on request)
Number of floors - (3)
Parking nearby (surcharge)
Pets not allowed
Safe-deposit box at front desk
Television in lobby
Total number of rooms - (20)
No Bar/Lounge, and if there was I did not see it and was not informed where it was located.
No Cable tv service, I had a small tv with snowy reception and bad sound, too loud/too quite.
No telephone to be seen.
No hair dryer. I had a quick shower on the morning of departure and had to leave with my hair soaking wet.
I had a booked a twin room which turned out to be a small corridor on the 3rd floor which meant I had to climb 6 flights of stairs. The so called shared bathroom was grubby when I arrived and just as grubby when I left and there was no toilet roll after one night. The shower room was out of order on arrival and still out of order the following morning. Might I also mention the shared bathroom was 3 floors down from my room.
There was no smoking allowed, even thought I was asked at the time of booking if I wanted a smoking room to which I had replied yes. There is no smoking area so therefore you are directed out on to the street to smoke. That may seem ok, but when you are been buzzed in and buzzed out of a premises as the door is kept locked at all times, smoking out side does not seem such a good idea, Does not say much for the neighbour hood. I would never even consider staying here again at any price. I would not take free accommodation in the place. I could go on but I am just reliving the nightmare as I am typing so I will leave it up to your own judgement.
