Stayed on an brief visit to Dublin. Ideally located for doing business in the city, would highly recommend. Check in was seamless, rooms are sort of 'art deco' style and very comfortable. The food in the bar was quick and tasty with a very prompt service.Hard to fault any aspect, well done|!

We stayed for three nights and when our flight cancelled there was no decision to make on where to stay, we came back to The Alex. Our first stay we had the Alex Suite 200 and first concerned about noise on the second floor and all the windows. We didn't hear any street noise at all. So when we returned we booked another suite and were in Suite 300 and it was as lovely as suite 200. The staff is excellent, friendly and helpful in every way. When we come to Dublin again there is no decision where we will stay, again, The Alex!!!!

I was in Dublin for a week on business and had chosen this hotel as it had a great looking gym and I found a good deal on a room. I was really nicely surprised to see it had a beautiful interior and the room was really nice. I had a room facing the road on the third floor so I had somewhat of a view but that didn't really matter to me. The gym was in a neighbouring hotel - The Mont, which was just around the corner but it's brand new and a good size so I was happy to make the 2 minute walk to it. The staff at The Alex are very friendly and happy to engage in conversation if you want it. The food is really nice though I'd like to see more Irish brands on the beer pumps. There's a wonderful pub next door called The Ginger Man that I visited a number of times that had some great beers to try. Breakfast in the restaurant in the morning was good though I think getting the eggs out the kitchen could have been faster. Location wise, the hotel is about a 15 minute walk past the university from the main shopping area and the famous Temple Bar area. It's very close to a number of free entry museums and the hop-on/hop off buses stop. It's close to a train station and there's a number of places to get food to take out or eat in around the hotel if you fancy a change. There's a Tesco around the corner about 10 minutes walk away for anything you need. This was a business trip but my wife joined me on the Friday for the weekend and we explored much of Dublin. Look out for The Dublin Pass ticket that allows you access to a whole range of activities and things to see as well as the hop on/hop off buses, which was a great way to get around.

The hotel, and it's rooms are modern, clean and quiet. We were able to find a place to park our rental car (for a fee) close by. The location of the hotel is quite good as it's in walking distance to the Temple Bar area as well as there being quite a few bars and restaurants in the surrounding neighborhood. The Alex is not memorable in any specific regard but fits the bill for a decent place to stay for the night.
