A last minute overnight trip to Dublin on a rugby international weekend left me with few affordable 4 star hotel choices. I left it up to fate and used the "Top Secret Hotel" option on hotel consolidation website. Their selection was the Ashling Hotel, a place I have known for many years and one which I held a negative opinion of. As such i would NEVER have chosen to stay here on my own volition.
I couldn't have been more surprised upon check in. This place has been completely renovated and the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
Our room was ENORMOUS with three beds; 2 singles and a queen. Bathroom was functional more than stylish with good towels and basic toiletries. The room itself was very warm and stuffy however and there was no way to regulate the heating so we left it on with the window open. The bed was very comfortable and overall cleanliness and presentation was very good.
Located right next to the most important train station (Hueston) with good links to Galway, Limerick, Waterford and Cork but still a taxi, bus or Luas ride from the city centre.
The noon check out time was a boon.
I had lunch after checking out and the bar food was simple but very well done.
Great value overall and I have no hesitation in recommending it to my clients looking for a good value option in Dublin.
