We had a weekend break at O'Callaghans Alexander Hotel, Fenian Street, Dublin arriving on Friday 5th July 2013. I had rang earlier in the day to ascertain where the 'on site' parking was located. Its actually a seperate building 200 meters past the hotel. You are told the PIN to enter the secure carpark by reception and the hotel charges 12 Euros per day. First Impressions were good, the foyer was clean and airy and the female receptionist very freindly and welcoming. When asked she took time to highlight areas for dining on a map, and recommended entertainment venues. The room was a standard double at the front of the hotel on the third floor, and it was impressive. clean and bright. The bathroom was very good with a good high pressure shower and an excellent extractor, to prevent everything steaming up. There was even an illuminated magnified shaving mirror to show your minor imperfections. Air Con was necessary as it was unusually hot for Dublin and we were both able to sleep with it active.
There was a very few negatives - In the 'Winners Bar' there was a distinct absence of any atmosphere, which was probably why approx 8 people was the most I seen in it. Breakfast is charged at 10 euro if you charge to your account and 13.50 euro if you dont?? strange.. But be advised Dublin is one of the most expensive cities in Europe to shop or dine, and like most big cities at weekends is often not easy to get somewhere to eat due to the vast number of people.
Would stay again but only on a deal due to the added costs.
Overall a very good hotel, well located near shops and venues..
