This hotel is just across the river Liffey, opposite the Temple Bar area that you can reach in 3 minutes by foot. Quite anonymous from the outside once you enter the building you will notice that design is a big part of the hotel phylosophy. The staff during my entire stay was corteous, professional and always had a smile on his/her face. Even though on arrival my room was not ready, I was able to check-in, drop my bags and get directions for a walk around. The room was very nice decorated but I am afraid the designer hadn’t kept in mind that storage space is also important for the guests. As much as everything fits in place with a very nice touch, like colour lighting or a little message on the wall, there is very little space to store your personall stuff. I think people staying for a week will have problem. A big flat TV, mini-bar, iron & ironing-board and a good and stable free Wi-Fi where the in room amenities. My room had a river view which was just nice: too bad the window was a dash too small.
This property offers you a nice bar and a couple of restaurants: the breakfast was served in the Halo restaurant. Very modern and stylish, the breakfast is set in the common buffet formula: plenty of fresh cold and hot food, nice way of presenting yogurt. Everything you can possibly ask for a breakfast is there. The breakfast stuff looked kind of short though as waiting time for hot drinks was a bit long and on a specific day dirty tables were just 70% of the total but no one seems to bother. Maybe a bad day? I also remember them wanting to charge me for the breakfast that was already included in the room price...
Oh! And they even forgot to make my room one day despite having the card „please clean“ on the door from 10 a.m.
On the 3rd floor there is also a little gym nicely equiped.
No problem with street noise as isolation is well done and you can sleep very well; the beds are also comfy.
From this base you can be in minutes wherever you like: from the pedestrian street and shopping area on the back to the pubs and entertainment Temple Bar area in the front. A couple of good restaurants are to be found at walking distance.
And as the rest of Dublin this isn’t a cheap destination!
