Stayed recently for an overnight city break. Lovely hotel in the centre of Dublin, still has the old fashioned Dublin charm which sadly can be lost in the bigger hotel chains. Rooms very good, clean and airy. Special thanks to the night manager, think his name was Tony, who was very welcoming and put us at ease as we arrived... More

This is a lovely hotel, steps away from Trinity. The service is fantastic. I had dinner and the server was so attentive. When I checked out I left my computer in my room and did not realize it until I was going thru security. At that exact moment I heard my name called to a courtesy phone as the hotel... More

Nice hotel in the centre of town. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is fabulous with a range of british hot food, continental, sweet and healthy. Rooms are spacious and nice. But the furniture is not the newest and one can see some marks here and there. Looks like the hotel needs some paint on some walls and on... More

Big breakfast spread. The breakfast servers are very attentive to your needs. Rooms are a nice size. The people at the front desk were very helpful with several issues I had while there. They made phone calls for me and helped me find a left behind bag on a tour bus and a credit card I left at a store.... More

Needed a centrally located hotel on our recent trip to Dublin and chose the O'Callaghan Alexander. Upon arrival, front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful - room was spacious and comfortable. Shower in bathroom was great! Property has aged a little as evidenced by décor, elevator but was still excellent value for the money.

Alexander is an older hotel, but with much charm. This hotel is situated within walking distance of many of the main attractions of Dublin. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were well prepared and presented, and felt more like a preferential restaurant rather than the offset of a hotel lobby.

I not only stayed but attended a conference in this hotel. My bedroom was very comfortable and well maintained. The hotel conference room was large, quiet and well air conditioned. It was a large conference and the hotel coped with feeding us all extremely well. Also, it is positioned very centrally to many of Dublin's attractions. All in all an... More

I travel a lot as an airline crew member and for pleasure. Therefore, I stay at a lot of hotels. One thing that sets the standard for a stay is the friendliness of the staff. The personnel at the front desk didn't seem to care to greet me when I was coming and going. Their ambivalence was unacceptable. The Irish... More

We thoroughly loved this hotel and it's location. If I had any criticism is that the bedding was bad. The mattress was so worn out, I would roll down hill and my husband will roll downhill the other way with a big hump in the middle. But that being said it was clean and the folks were nice.
