This must be just about the best location in Dublin. Walkable distance to the town centre close by Aviva stadium and the RDS and in an area of fine restaurants and even finer pubs. The hotel is a boutique hotel nicely styled rooms are generally very good and the staff and services were first class. We booked through Mr and Mrs Smith which gave us a 'free' breakfast and wine if you dined in house. The breakfast is fine and the restaurant with fairly limited choice is also quite good. The bar is really nice and was very lively over the weekend. The few downsides include somewhat shabby carpets in the hallway and a bathroom that really doesn't work very well. The door opens on to a single sink and the shower above the bath makes the best of very limited space but is not what you want in a first class hotel. Overall we would come again if only for the location. Within minutes you have some great pubs Searsons for one with live jazz and fantastic bars and ambience. Down Baggot street you have great little cafes like Voila and first class Michelin restaurants.
