Stayed in this hotel on March 2010. Within walking distance of Blanchardstown Shopping Center (and easy access to Dublin city center) so perfect for a shopping break. However, mostly urban location with no scenic views but rooms at starting at 69 Euro (without breakfast) for a 4 star hotel was excellent value.
However, DO NOT get breakfast here, it is ridiculously overpriced (20 Euro plus 4 Euro tray charge) and for that you get breakfast served late to the room (both mornings) by 2 slow moving girls (1st morning) and an unfriendly man with poor English and no help (2nd morning). The breakfast tray was missing items and the food was almost cold. To add insult to injury, I was mistakingly charged for tray charge and gratuity even though I paid all room service fees and gratuity in cash. The breakfast itself consisted of fried eggs that were like rubber and either overcooked or undercooked sausage. The Danish and muffins were cold and the fruit salad was unappetizing and looked mundane. Although breakfast was a maximum of 15 minutes late, what is the point of supplying a requested time period (in half hour increments), if they don't show up in this time period! I have stayed in 3 star hotels with better room service and nicer breakfasts. Also I requested a comment card from the man serving the breakfast on the second morning which was not supplied.
There are plenty of places in the nearby shopping center that serves nicer breakfasts at a cheaper price which is a shame to say because this hotel would be exemplary if their breakfast service was up to the standard of a 4 star (or even a 3 star hotel).
However, the front desk staff were excellent, and were very helpful when I asked to be moved from a room which was beside an elevator and thus was very noisy from people using it in the early hours of the morning.
