This hotel breaths history and atmosphere. The rooms are old and the walls and floors might not be straight like modern hotels, but this all has a great charm. The room was clean, the beds were good, we heard no noice from outside or other guests, the shower was really warm and there was enough closet space. The staff was always very thoughtful and helping, both at reception as at dinner/breakfast. Breakfast was set with table service, but they had no problems with alternatives like an Irish vegan instead of veggie breakfast (delicious sausages!), providing extra fruits, serving soy milk, or even serving an extra dish like (non-vegan) pancakes along with the other breakfast options. Would definitely return to this when I would be visiting Dublin again and I would also recommend this hotel to others!

I chose this hotel because it is the oldest hotel in Dublin. It is actually several Georgian Houses that make up this hotel. So the interior is beautifully decorated and has multiple staircases that go in all directions.( elevators also) There are so many different rooms where you can sit and relax. The price was very good. The room was comfortable and our bathroom was modernized. I can't say enough about the friendly staff. Each encounter we had was positive. We had to leave at 4:30 on am and the night receptionist (Ahmed?) cooked a breakfast for us in the restaurant since we were traveling and arranged for our taxi pickup. Above and beyond with an excellent and friendly demeanor. The hotel is just off O'Connell street which is a main thoroughfare for everything so we were able to walk everywhere from there. We had English Tea in the coffee shop which was a treat. The owner's son (Daniel?) spent time talking with us and welcoming us. Although we got into a political discussion of opposing views he was gracious. I would stay here again and recommend it to everyone.

I have stayed previously when on business in Dublin City centre and the positives with this establishment have remained steadfast. I have deducted a star for a few niggling maintenance issues with the room, however in general I had a very positive and pleasant stay. The service is absolutely the jewel in the crown of this hotel and as previously stated in many reviews, good service can make up for a multitude and is the lasting memory of any stay, whilst poor service will diminish even the most spectacular of stays / meals etc. All of the hotel personnel from the young man I spoke to after booking the wrong dates, to the friendly and efficient check in on arrival and the professional yet very pleasant young Spanish lady who greeted me at breakfast, the service on offer is worthy of special mention. This hotel offers onsite parking, which is both desirable for me in Dublin on business and also unusual as most other hotels that offer parking in their lists of facilities, do not actually offer onsite parking. There is a € 15 additional charge for such parking, which is advertised on the hotel website and still represents value it to me. My room to be fair, was small yet clean and albeit that it did have a few maintenance issues, it was more than sufficient for my one night stay. I stayed mid week and the room did have noise migration issues from the corridor, hence you may require to stipulate a quiet room when booking should you be staying on a weekend. The room was warm, the bed was comfortable, albeit the pillows were like pancakes and the en-suite was clean and well equipped as a wet room, which I believe to be a far superior facility for a hotel room over the ridiculous practice of standing in a bath to shower. One downside of this was that the drainage was slow and therefore the floor remained wet for use after showering which resulted in wet feet and wet footprints in the room. As stated the room had a few niggling maintenance issues which weren't sufficient to request a room change and which I did report to reception on check out. The breakfast was served in a comfortable setting and as stated I was greeted and served by a very friendly, efficient and professional young Spanish lady. The breakfast itself was fresh, clean and crisp, cooked to order and ate every bit as good as it looked. My stay provided everything I required at reasonable value for money and pleasant service, I would certainly stay again should I require to be in Dublin's City Centre.

What a beautiful experience we had today, an absolutey wonderful ambience with super attentive staff and sublime foods perfectly sized. Every mouthful better than the last, sandwiches to suit every taste and an array of cakes and petite fours worthy of any patisserie. Will definitely be going back.

Lovely greeting upon arrival. Staff very helpful. Food was excellent and affordable too. Room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was well worth the eat. Secure carparking available for €15 a night - well worth it. Most importantly - the bed was very comfortable - a great nights sleep even with a little noise from the main street. Overall, a lovely hotel with friendly staff and beautiful décor. We will be back thats for sure. The only flaw was that they did not ask for vaccination confirmation but they had plenty of sanitiser stations in the areas.
