Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We spent the weekend in Dublin and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay: the area is quiet to rest, but very close to the center, pubs and parks. The hotel is modern, clean and has friendly service. We also had a nice lunch there aswell.

My first impression was ultimate excitement when I realized the vibe was totally art deco. I couldn't have been happier. The rooms were large with plenty of seating space etc... in addition to comfy beds. The restaurant was phenomenal with extremely attentive staff. Check in was easy and the employees were extremely helpful with every need I required. (Early morning taxi service with an option of a "to-go" breakfast, deliveries of our much needed still water and so forth.) The location is great! We found that almost everything was within walking distance of this hotel! I can't wait to revisit! Thanks!

The elevator was out so we had to lug our own suitcases up flights of stairs by ourselves. Might not be for everyone. Budget hotel all around. A bit dingy. No light by the bed. No nightstand either. No washcloths, only hand towels and towels.

This hotel is a designer's dream stay. The colors and textures throughout the hotel are stunning and provide a very rich and comforting atmosphere without any of the fussy clutter that no one likes. Every detail has been considered, especially the little special touches such as lights and fixtures. The staff was lovely and very helpful at check-in and with questions about local restaurants, etc. I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again on our next trip to Dublin.

After a few stumbles with website booking (website malfunctions) and some subsequent miscommunications we found The Alex to be a lovely hotel in a good location (near Trinity College and an easy walk to Temple Bar) with modern, class, flawless rooms. The restaurant needs a bit of work on service (at least at dinner) but the front desk staff was friendly. I recommend this hotel.

Having stayed in The Alex previously, we were looking forward to another pleasant stay. This did not happen. Reception staff appeared untrained and nervous and were unable to handle the simplest of enquiries. My request for the bathroom extractor to be repaired was ignored. While we were out, our room 102 was entered by persons unknown and goods were taken. We use the inroom safe, so valuables and documents were not touched. Acknowledgement of this event was slow to be reported and I had top ask at reception for any information. Our door entry system was scanned.No offer was made to change our keys. We were told that it would take several days to find out what had happened and we were promised a full report. The goods were replaced. We have heard nothing more other that a request to rate our stay! This was an unsettling occurrence during our stay at the Alex, which one would not like to repeat.The senior staff were most reluctant to try to explain what might have occurred. Having had a look at previous reviews I came across a guests experience of being given the key to an already occupied room, and guess what, it was Room 102! Patricia Murray and Stuart Reid

My wife and I spent four nights here. On the plus side: staff responsiveness; great AC (important because the outside customers at the bar next door meant you couldn't keep the window open at night; great shower, very good breakfast options, even for someone needing gluten-free. On the minus side: typical "King" bed made up of two twins, but rather than the typical well between them, a filler that made the middle higher, so that each person tended to roll off the bed; no hooks in the bath; shampoo & body wash in ridiculous plastic containers that don't stay up, and are good for maybe two washes each; their The Carriage Restaurant and Bar supposedly requires a reservation, but it rarely had more than a couple of table occupied outside of breakfast. It had a really limited dinner menu, but they tried to make one dish gluten-free: their Seafood Skillet ( €25.00) was really a Garbanzo Skillet, with three separated shrimp heads, just two shrimp bodies, a few mussels and three small pieces of fish, overwhelmed with a full can of garbanzos. That said, we might stay here again, or at one of their sister hotels across the street.
