Had to visit Dublin with work - but partner came along too - and we had a day to selves at end of trip - so trip was mixture of busienss and pleasure. Really liked this hotel. It was expensive to be honest- but as work were paying for my first night - we only had to pay for 2nd.
The location is just super - you honeslty couldn't ask for better. Previous visits to Dublin we visited temple bar a lot - but this hotel taught us how to enjoy true dublin. All the surrounding streets are filled with shops, cafes, delis, restaurants, bookshops. They then lead onto either St Stephens Green - or Graton Street - so everything is on your doorstep. On Saturday we walked to Temple Bar - and quickly remembered how touristy it is - and walked swiflty back to our hotel area to spend the afternoon around there - much nicer area. It was literally 'buzzing' with life (in a nice way!) - I coudl spoends days and days potterign around!
Dont; understand some of the bad reviews - our room was spotless and v luxurious. Big room. Furniture not what used to in hotel - very different style - but that made it nicer! Bathroom was fab - double doors leading onto 'his and hers' sinks. Very quiet at night and we slept brilliantly.
Service was brilliant. We needed to leave bags with them on first morning and last afetrnoon. They were quick, helpful and generally lovely to deal with.
If we were heading back to Dublin - I'd love to stay here again - the only thing holding me back would be the cost (Friday night Was €130 room only).
