We were in Dublin for a wedding and booked at this hotel. It's in a great location, nice and quiet but very near City Centre so no need for buses. The room was beautifully presented, very comfortable and all staff (especially on Reception) were most helpful and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The bar was very nice with... More

We stayed in room 6136 which was on the first floor. The room had no view to speak of but that didn't matter to us as we were there to sightsee and do things! There would not appear to be many twin rooms in the hotel so choice is probably a bit limited for 2 friends travelling together as we... More

On arrival the staff were very nice and explained things very well. First problem was keypad missing off of the safe no effort made to resolve only an offer of storing valuables downstairs. After finding the keypad under the wardrobe we went to the bar and ordered a drink which was fine. We asked the bar men about a residents... More

Good location, quiet at night. Free wifi. We wanted somewhere central to stay for a quick visit and this was perfect. Staff even held our bags for us for a number of hours on check out - good service And would recommend this hotel if you're looking for somewhere quiet but still in the middle of the action of the...

My daughter and I stayed our first two nights in Ireland in this Dublin hotel. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The hotel was perfectly located for us to walk around Dublin and see all local sites. The rooms were very comfortable, however, the bathroom was a little less than clean - particularly the shower. Nothing a little elbow... More

I recently stayed in one of the sister hotels - the Mont Clare - and the food in bar was highest standard. Guess what - I ate in Alendar across the road and ... the food is top class again.

The room was clean, strangely it had two single beds, although my wife and I had requested a queen. We just pushed them together. The beds were a bit soft but I slept well enough. The staff were friendly. This hotel is affordable and is in easy walking distance of many Dublin attractions.

We were quite pleased with our stay at the O'Callaghan Alexander -- especially after reading TA reviews, many of which were not as good as we hoped.
