Stayed here recently with a group of travel agents, and we had a great experience at the Alex.

It's in a fantastic location, minutes from Grafton Street and the station.
The decor of the Alex is very trendy, modern with a retro touch and the staff are very friendly and efficient.
Breakfast was small but with plenty of delicious options.

Rooms are spacious and very clean, and have lots of fun quirky touches, like a retro radio and phone, and a beautiful bathroom.
Loved the fact that whoever designed the rooms remembered the power/usb outlets next to the bed, and the shower controls are on the OPPOSITE side to the shower head, avoiding that awful moment when you have to stand under freezing cold water while working out the temperature controls. Much appreciated.

Overall we had a great stay at the Alex, and would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a modern yet friendly hotel in Dublin.

The hotel appears to have been renovated recently, and it is a mid-century modern delight. The service was impeccable, and the location was amazing. There are, however, a few tiny things I wish could be changed. For example, there is no place to hang a towel in the bathroom. There are no recycling bins in the room, so papers and bottles have to be put in the garbage, and there isn't a luggage rack. Some of these might be cultural (perhaps recycling is more Canadian than Irish, and perhaps most people unpack their suitcase fully). But these little things are available in most hotels at this price range in most countries to which I have traveled. Still, I would return!

Stayed here for 2 nights. Only setback is that theres not many choices of restaurants unless you head towards temple bar. Otherwise a really nice place to stay. The rooms were spacious and clean. Definitely would recommend to others & would most definitely come back

We just spent one night at the Alex before leaving the country. The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. They also put out a very nice breakfast spread. It is centrally located if you are planning to explore Dublin.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your kind review and we appreciate you taking the time to let us know how your stay was.

I am delighted that you enjoyed your night with us, a pity it was only the one night on this occasion. We are very lucky with our location knowing that all of what Dublin has to offer is very accessible. In particular I am pleased that you found the room to be comfortable and that we set you on your way with a good breakfast.

Thank you for your custom and I hope we can welcome you back to us again in the near future.

Great hotel, stylish rooms with plenty of space. All staff helpful and tasty breakfast. Would recommend to all my friends and family and would certainly stay again. Parking a little bit fiddly but it’s a town centre hotel so can’t complain too much
