Stayed here for three nights on a business trip. Very imposing building in a nice area of Dublin - easy to find - €6 in a taxi from Connolly Station on a Tuesday afternoon.
Very cool, modern lobby area with a chic bar and a small snack stand. The lifts were being serviced during my visit so there was a bit of a wait sometimes as the hotel was very full, but the buzz was exciting and entertaining. On my first night I had been given a room on the car park side of the building. The room was very modern, clean with a clean, functional bathroom if a bit soulless. The WiFi was great and the TV very impressive. There was no a/c though and the windows opened only a fraction, I found it quite uncomfortable - but it was an unusually warm week and I thought I'd just get on with it.
I left the window open and went to bed. I eventually got off to sleep only to be awakened at 0425 by at least 2 locals using their outside voices to full, colourful effect and apparently loading bowling balls into a lorry filled with corrugated tin sheets! After 25 minutes they were just wrapping up when another lorry arrived and sat idling while loading large aluminium catering boxes. I pressed the 24hrs help button on the phone and registered my desire to change room in the morning.
My room was changed with no hassle whatsoever the next day, and apologies from very helpful reception staff. Same level, other side of the hotel - exact same room but looking into the centre of the complex over a rather ugly industrial roof, but quiet! Same heat, same very restricted window opening but clean and handy for the lift. One other gripe might be that the bedroom doors all close with a bang that echoes in the corridor.
The breakfast was wonderful and endlessly restocked with everything you could ask for, the health suite was great and easily accessible from the lift. The staff were all very helpful, polite and professional.
