This hotel was great for us. We stayed for three nights as part of our day 10 day journey across Europe. The staff were very friendly. The hotel was clean and presentable. Rooms were comfortable and spacious which is a welcome find in Europe. We highly recommend staying here if you are ever in Dublin.

Stayed in this fine city centre hotel and found the staff very friendly and focused on making my stay better. One person, the night porter, Cyril, was really helpful & engaging. A real bonus for this hotel to have people like this taking care of your customers.

Our early morning arrival was anticipated beautifully and a room was ready for us. Unfortunately, though, the heating system was not working properly, so we were given a suite instead. It was very spacious and wonderfully well appointed. The bed was very comfortable and the staff, especially Sian, was wonderfully kind and helpful. In addition to all this, being walking... More

We arrived really early in the morning and technically weren't able to check in until 2pm. The lady at the desk worked her magic and got us into a room right then and there. It was wonderful beause we were extremely exhausted and needed some rest. The staff is so friendly the locations is perfect. Close enough to the city... More

I had a Christmas lunch last week in Alexander Hotel recently. I requested no vegetables with butter or cream to be served on my plate. Unfortunately my meal came with mash potatoes with butter. I complained to the Manager of the restaurant and was told that he didn't give me very much mash potatoes and that there was only a... More

If you'd like a great welcoming experience with very friendly and warm staff, you cannot go wrong with O'Callaghan. The staff is superb and very hospitable. The room could be tad tiny by American standards but perfectly okay by European standards. The hotel is walking distance from Trinity College and would be about a 20-25 minute walk to the Temple-bar... More

I checked in at 10pm and there was no food available. The next day I went down at 11am and was told by staff that he was "too busy" to serve food. There were only 2 people in the whole restaurant. On the same night they mixed up reservations made for a dinner meeting. This resulted in having to find... More

I stayed in this hotel in November 2014 on business. It is in a good location for visiting Dublin attractions such as Trinity college and the shopping streets. If driving to the hotel there is offsite parking in an apartment complex a block away - ring in advance for the code to the gate or leave your bags at reception... More

Room was spacious and king size bed was very comfortable. Great shower in bathroom. The down side was the service at breakfast. I felt rushed, as staff kept snatching plates from my table, before I had finished eating. Apart from the breakfast service, I would recommend this hotel.
