We had a pleasant stay here to celebrate a 21st birthday. We ordered a suite with a bottle of Prosecco, dinner and breakfast. Given the room size and what was included, I thought €360 was decent value. Good Points: - Large Rooms - Nespresso machine and kettle in rooms - Bath tub - Ordered takeaway and was given napkins, cutlery and water by reception - Free parking - Beautiful decor Bad points: - No Netflix on TV, and couldn’t watch US Grand Prix. - Fish we had for dinner didn’t taste fresh, and the tar tar sauce had a top layer of darker sauce, indicating that it was lying around for a while. - No room service (except breakfast) and no mini bar. Overall a positive experience, staff were very accommodating and friendly. Felt welcome throughout my stay. Could have made the experience better by bringing my own food and bringing a laptop to connect to TV. Let down by dinner mains but starters were very tasty and other mains around us looked quite good.

Came here for dinner with my partner after seeing some divine instagram photos and was not disappointed. The secret garden is indeed that, secret. Its behind the bar in a small area that's beautifully decorated. The food was very good but it was the cocktails that won it for me. Being used to Dublin prices I would have expected these cocktails to be 18 euro or so , so I was floored to see they were around 13! The staff were outstanding and given that we are In covid times and visited during a weekdaywe were still constantly checked up on with excellent attention from Lucas and the rest of the team . Will be booking this again for brunch with the girls !!

I stayed here 3 nights. I had zero complaints. Everything was “very good” as the 4 circles says. The gym, although in a different building, is even better than “very good.” I wouldn’t expect to visit it in the winter, but this trip it was a real asset. P

We had a great stay at The Alex and will highly recommend it. All staff was helpful and friendly, especially guiding us through process of getting pre-travel COVID testing. Hotel is clean and beautifully kept. Great breakfast value, at night a great place to unwind with drinks. The most comfortable bed ever, super quiet rooms. Within comfortable 10 min walking of main tourist areas (Grafton/Temple Bar) and close to a couple of great Pubs. Kudos for staff who made our stay memorable, Lucas (always helpful, great advice on where to go in the city) and Eric (made us laugh and recommended the best Irish whiskey)!

We had one night in Dublin after a walking tour so we treated ourselves to the Alex. The price was so reasonable for huge suite that we booked. It was well-designed, spotless, and the staff was helpful and kind.
