Great hotel a few minutes walk from Grafton Street, It was a 'mystery hotel' booking and I was very pleased. Very helpful and friendly reception staff who made us feel very welcome. The room was on the 6th floor, it was very clean and comfortable. I would stay here again.

I went to Dublin for a business trip and the hotel was selected by our company. The rooms are a bit outdated. The double room doesn't have reading lights, meaning your light is on the ceiling so if you want to read at night, you are lighting the entire room, not convenient when sharing a room and have different sleeping...

Hotel exterior, lobby and restaurant were nice but the guest rooms left something to be desired. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable but the carpet was awful! Large stains all over. The heating unit was not working or inefficiently working so space heaters were placed int the rooms. The bathtub needed refinishing as the surface was worn. There were...

I stayed at the Alexander Hotel for one night only. It is a very nice hotel. The room was very spacious and clean. I found all the staff to be very professional, helpful and friendly. The only area that could be improved upon is the breakfast, while it was good, it could be better.
