Very nice recently updated hotel. Friendly, helpful staff. Good bar service and restaurant. No ice machine on floors. Must pick up ice from the bar. Should have more towels for bathroom. Good location,close to bus line and away from most tourist traffic.

Love this hotel. Super friendly staff, great style, and nice rooms with cool furniture and comfortable bed. Feels trendy and hip, in a good way. Fun pub is right next door as well. While at the edge of town, great starting point for walking around the city. We had access to the executive lounge on the 6th floor, which was great (complimentary snacks, wine, beer, soda). Worth every penny.

This property is pretty nice. The only issues we had were: A) There was only a single towel in the room, so I had to go downstairs to ask for more towels and a washcloth. Not every hotel supplies washcloths, so I can see past that. But to only provide a single bath towel? B) By far the bigger issue was the temperature in the room - it was really stuffy when we arrived. When I turned the air conditioner on, it was set at 18*C (about 64*F). I gave it a couple of hours to start cooling the room down, and when it was abundantly clear that the ~78*F was the best it would do, I opened a window in the hopes that that would help. I told the ladies behind the front desk, and I asked for a fan (my wife has the flashes common to a woman “of a certain age”). I was told that they had given them all out, and that I must close our room window for the air to cool down. She didn’t seem to hear me when I told her that I waited a couple of hours before trying the window. Bottom line: We are very unlikely to stay here again. Not only does the A/C not work properly, but the desk clerk tried to blame me for it - and she stopped just shy of calling me a liar when I told her that it wasn’t cooling. There are too many hotels in Dublin to spend the night sweating...

I would recommend the Alex Hotel in Dublin. It was a good value, great location, but not too close to the tourist rush. The train station was a 3 minute walk. (We took a delightful hike and separate day at Howth, a very easy half hour train excursion). The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would particularly mention Rebecca, who helped us book our trip to Howth and helped us make several calls to France over an upcoming trip. She was very helpful and professional in every way. The rooms were clean and very stylish, although our room's shower drain was very slow. Overall, I would highly recommend the Alex Hotel in Dublin.

We found this hotel to be very average. The free Breakfast was just a step above an American holiday inn. The small pour drinks in the bar were ridiculously expensive and pathetically weak. Overall it was clean and neat but nothing special. And do they really have to only offer lukewarm showers ?
