On first impression as you enter the hotel it is modern, friendly and 4 star rating and this continues throughout the hotel. I could not fault this hotel. The staff are friendly, the rooms are spacious, clean with excellent facilities in the room, incl cd player, mini bar, iron, toiletries, air conditioning, seperate shower, tea making, hairdryer. The rooms are sound proofed and the hotel is in a quiet location (well no games were on at Croke Park when we stopped). We spent 2 nights here and the atmosphere is so lovely in the hotel that we came back early to enjoy our evenings of beer and cocktails (and prices are reasonable, with weekend cocktails only 7euros). There is a large tv screen, cosy sofas and a welcoming modern flame fire.
Breakfast was well presented and plenty of choice and the service was excellent, there must be 1 member of staff to every table, clearing away, constantly topping tea pots and milk pots and refilling toast up when we ran low.
The only downside to this hotel is the location, it isn't in a very nice part of Dublin and first impression was not too good when we walked to the main streets, which are a good 20 minute walk and Temple Row 30 mins away. Taxis are quite expensive, around 10 euros but you might want to consider this as we did not feel very safe walking back at night!
Trip was booked through Travel Republic......bargain for £198 for 2 including flights and 2 nights accommodation and breakfast
Overall - first class hotel, poor location
