Booked this hotel as a two night stay for my wife and I as my wife has never been. I love Dublin and was keen to introduce my wife to it.
Unfortunately, booking this hotel was not the way to start a nice weekend away.
The Location is good, a five minutes walk from O'Connell street and fifteen to Temple bar. However two minutes from OConnell street the area goes downhill. Rundown pubs and shops were the view from my window. A window that when fully shut had a 1 cm gap up the left hand side. This did nothing to keep the noise of the streets out. And at night in that neighbourhood there was plenty of noise.including drunks shouting and even some fighting in the street.
The room itself was ghastly and in need of redecoration albeit mostly clean. Nothing like the website pictures... The furniture was old, marked and scarred but polished. The bathroom was claustrophobic and the shower was tiny. The TV was tiny and high up. A €20 deposit was required for the remote as was another €20 for the safe key.
One member of Reception was helpful and friendly the others we experienced were not. The bar staff were very rude and unhelpful (serving appeared to be a chore rather than their job). The pub itself needs to be done up. Breakfast staff were friendly and the breakfasts were good albeit a bit dry (as if they had been made and kept under a grill for too long)
Dublin itself is great but expensive for food and drink. I would recommend Dublin but AVOID this hotel. Spend an extra €20 and go somewhere nicer.
