I was recommended this hotel by a colleague - I will be staying in Dublin 3-4 days every month from now on so was pleased to get a recommendation. Everyone was very friendly and helpful - I had forgotten my phone charger and when I asked the receptionist where I might buy one she lent me hers for my stay which was much appreciated. BUT I have to support eslicks comments about the noisy room.
I too thought the constant loud hum was from the bathroom fan and waited for it to go off but on investigation (in my jamas at 0200!) I realised it was outside near a plant room which reverberated all through my room ALL NIGHT. As it was a vibration as well as noise, ear plugs/iPod on full blast did not mask it - sleeping with earphones in is NOT comfortable. I asked to be moved but was told there were no spare rooms - a party of American tourists 'it's Tuesday so it must be Dublin' had just checked in so me paying €120 a night excluding breakfast went to the bottom of the priority list. My second night was equally awful- I would have been better sleeping in my car! Not good if you're here on business
When I checked out I told the receptionist I'd like to stay on a regular basis if I could be assured of a quiet room but that was met with a non -committal shrug
However the food at dinner was good, the breakfast plentiful but with a total bill for €367 for 2 nights I expected a restful night's sleep.
