After reading the reviews online i emailed the hotel saying that i am interested in staying. But i have heard some rooms are smaller and noiser than others could they provide me with a room that was one of the biggest and least noisey.
I had a very prompt response saying that she would upgrade me to a suite and that the hotel is not noisy (or something along those lines) and include breakfast. This was a wednesday to wednesday trip including breakfast for 800euros.
when we arrived in our room (second floor 215) we were pleased good size room and huge bathroom. Although i was expecting one of the newer look rooms. This room was noisey in the evenings and the shop across the road had a very sqeaky door! The streets must of had 4 rubbish collections a DAY including early in the morning and late at night. We seemed to always be in the room when they came to clean it which varied alot so trying to be out a certain time was out of the question. The staff were very friendly especially the lady (isobel) i dealt with to book the room. She rang me because i didnt want to send my card details via email. Breakfast was a choice of tea or coffee and toast brought to your table. Fruit juice, cereal and cooked items to help yourself to like scramble eggs and hash brown. The hotel did feel lovely and grand a little spoilt by laundry bags hanging around alot of the time. GREAT area. Lots of close by things to do we walked to the Guinness store house and a frequent bus very near to the Zoo. Shops every where you turn from the hotel and the leffey is less then 5 minutes walk away. We found local restaurants very expensive with most mains around 20euros so fallon&byrne a restaurant/food market was great. You could pick out some bangers and mash and they will heat it up and seal it for you to take away or you can eat in which costs a bit more. The hotel had a computer which you could pay 1euro for 8 minutes not cheap but just enough time to check emails and not leave the hotel! All in all the best way to sum up is 50/50. We went for a nice break the loctaion meant me didnt have to spend money on traverling and everything was at arms length. But we were not there to party so the noise really spoilt our relaxed hoilday.
