I stayed at the Fitzwilliam Townhouse for 4 nights this week.
Great location, close to St Stephen's Green
I'm afraid there were a few of these! The hotel in general is really quite run down - badly chipped paintwork, threadbare carpets, hairdryer where the cable is almost worn through, damaged tiles in the bathroom etc. In serious need of some TLC!
Noise - the hotel is on a busy junction and there was a lot of road noise even on the 2nd floor. But, worse than this was the noise from the adjoining rooms. When their TV was on not only could you hear every word, but it also caused a vibration/thrumming noise in my room which was impossible to ignore and kept me awake for two nights. The pipes and extractor fans are also dreadful and several times I was woken up when one of my neighbours used the bathroom. I should say I'm not normally a light sleeper - this place was very loud!
Hot water was also ropey at best - occasionally it worked properly but it was generally barely lukewarm
Wifi - included in room cost but was down completely for at least 10 hours at one point
Overall - I can't honestly recommend this, whilst it may be relatively cheap the compromise to sleep just isn't worth it.
